The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in Michigan

The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in Michigan

For quite a while now, Michigan has been one of a growing number of states to enjoy legal adult-use cannabis.  And, as dispensaries continue to emerge throughout the Wolverine State, we are noticing some clear trends as far as which strains Michiganders are making a beeline for.  Over the last several years, competition between cannabis breeders has gotten fiercer than ever, and as a result, dispensaries carry an enormous selection of cultivars in the state like never before.

With that being said, we’re gonna look at the most popular cannabis strains that Michiganders are reaching for, as we’re certain that you will find at least a couple of your favorites on this list.

Top 10 Strains That Michiganders Love

Let’s scope out some strains that continue to amaze in Michigan, based on consumer data and what we’ve heard from Michiganians who actually live in The Mitten State.  

#10: AK47

AK47 is a downright notorious sativa-leaning (65/35) hybrid with a relatively moderate THC level, and one that you don’t want to underestimate as its hazy cerebral effects are intense.  AK47’s ‘high’ starts out with a warm and tingly feeling in the forehead, and before long, you’re totally stoned and out of it, feeling utterly euphoric for no reason at all.  Its body high is relaxing without being heavy or sedating.  Its parents are some very beloved landrace strains, hence its spicy, citrusy, and earthy flavor.

#9: Skywalker OG

An 85% indica-dominant hybrid, Skywalker OG is fast-becoming a knockout on the market thanks to its powerful sleepy vibes that so many people are looking for.  Notorious for its couchlock effects, and its ability to make you feel utterly stoned, it’s a top-notch option for nighttime use.  Its spicy diesel-like taste is also infamously pungent.

#8: Sunset Sorbet

A close cousin of the legendary Gelato strain, Sunset Sorbet is an 85/15 indica-heavy hybrid, with euphoria-inducing effects that make it a major player.  And, its high THC content makes it majorly appealing among those with a high tolerance.  Sunset Sorbet can deliver a supersized wave of uplifting cerebral energy that slowly transforms into a feeling of complete tranquility, alongside a warm, mellow body high.  Its flavor is worth boasting about as well, with its creamy, fruity, and minty taste.

#7: Granddaddy Purple

Granddaddy Purple is a standout, and has been for years, since it’s just so darn good at helping you find your chill at the end of a long day.  Granddaddy Purple s a 70% indica-dominant hybrid that carries a big grape flavor, and can offer up a lazy, drowsy kind of ‘high’ that puts you into pure couchlock.  Plus, GDP’s THC level is very much above average, so your mind will be hazed out into oblivion.  Often suggested to people with looking for relief from stress and sleeping struggles, its mood-boosting yet calm properties are regarded as some of the very best in the cannabis world.

#6: Blue Dream

Blue Dream is an absolute force to be reckoned with, and a phenomenally desirable option thanks to its versatile nature.  Its ultra-balanced high and shapeshifting qualities make it appealing to a whole lot of enthusiasts.  Blue Dream is beloved for its blueberry flavor, and it’s a 60% sativa-leaning hybrid that’s sort of like a shapeshifter.  During the daytime, it can make you feel euphoric, focused, and creative, but if you take it at night, it can make you feel nice and peaceful before you rest your head.  It’s also said to be fantastic for relieving physical discomfort.

#5: Trainwreck

With a name like Trainwreck, you know you’re going to get wrecked off of this classic, and with an 80% sativa dominance and high THC level, you’re going to feel this potent high slam into you moments after exhaling.  It starts with a tsunami of energizing, buzzy euphoria that can get you up and moving.  It’s not for the light-hearted, as its stimulating effects can be a lot, and its warm and tingly body high isn’t exactly sedating.  It’s great for socializing, since it can make you feel chatty and giggly.  Its flavor profile is lemony and peppery.

#4: Platinum Cookies

Platinum Cookies has that 50/50 orientation so many are looking for, and its cookie-like flavor comes from its being a close relative to Girl Scout Cookies.  It’s a high-THC strain, so expect a really strong high that starts with a big blastoff into euphoric joy, followed by a warm and buzzing body high that gets heavier and heavier as time goes on, culminating in a state of unmovable peace.

#3: Kush Mints

Kush Mints (aka Platinum Kush Mints) is a 90% indica hybrid with huge appeal, and it’s sort of in the Girl Scout Cookies family based on its genetics.  Kush Mints offers about 20% THC, and has a unique flavor of coffee, mint, and woodsy notes.  It’s one of those all-consuming strains in that its high is felt powerfully throughout the body and mind from beginning to end, with a body high that makes you feel like you’re floating on a cloud, and a feeling of hazy joy in which nothing in the world can bring you down.

#2: Ice Cream Cake

Ice Cream Cake has been rising the ranks in the state, with a 75/25 indica-dominant profile that complements its ultra-high THC content.  Its parents are the legendary Wedding Cake and Gelato, making it something of a prestigious offspring.  And, as you can tell from its name, its flavor is absolutely exquisite.  The sweet-tasting cultivar is unbelievably euphoric, all while lulling the body into a state of couchlock, which feels like being cradled in a warm blanket.  Negative thoughts will disappear as you feel a sense of inner peace that’s indescribable.

#1: Wedding Cake

Michiganders have spoken, and the top strain in the state is Wedding Cake, sometimes known as Pink Cookies.  It’s got a 60/40 indica-dominant hybrid profile, and a higher-than-average THC level, all while tasting a lot like its name, with notes of cake and sweet cherries.  It’s a powerful stress reliever, ridding the mind of negative thoughts and irritability, and its balanced nature explains its crowd-pleaser status.  Wedding Cake is also big in demand on the medicinal market thanks to its ability to zero in on all kinds of common ailments.
