The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in New Mexico

New Mexico has been enjoying legal weed for a little while now, with dispensaries still popping up throughout the state.  And, residents of the Land of Enchantment have been treated to access to many of the best strains in the world, which have been slowly migrating across the country to line these dispensaries’ shelves.  Because of that, we’ve been able to watch which cannabis products have been trending more than others throughout NM, and also pay attention to which strains are dominating the local market.  Now, taking all of that into account, we’re going to discuss the strains that are the most sought-after in the Cactus State.

Top 10 Strains That New Mexicans Can Really Celebrate About

Let’s look at some strains that continue to perform really well in the state, based on consumer data and what we’ve heard from people who actually live in New Mexico. 

#10: Green Crack

Green Crack is a notorious strain that’s been on the market for a long time.  This 65% sativa, 35% indica hybrid is infamous for its intensely energizing nature, which can make you feel stimulated, euphoric, and ready to tackle just about anything before you.  Creative individuals can’t get enough of its inspiration-enhancing properties, and its citrusy, tropical fruit taste makes it all the more desirable.  The strain’s THC levels hover around 20%, but don’t underestimate this strain’s intensity.

#9: Northern Lights

Northern Lights is a legendary indica that’s been revered for generations thanks to its prestigious lineage and sought-after effects, and it’s a popular reach for nighttime partaking, since it can be immensely calming to both the body and the mind.  Both euphoric and stress-alleviating, it’s easy to fall in love with this cultivar, and its sweet, citrusy, and earthy taste makes it easy to recognize.

#8: Berry White

A 65/35 indica-dominant hybrid, Berry White is a crowd-pleaser thanks to its mellower THC level and balanced high that’s neither too sleepy nor too energy-boosting.  Its body high is regarded as pleasurable, with a warm and tingly feeling that works through the muscles, and a nice lift to the mood that knocks out any negativity or worry.  Its droolworthy taste is just the icing on the cake, no pun intended, as cake-like undertones complement the rich berries.

#7: Sunset Sorbet

An 85/15 hybrid heavy on the indica, Sunset Sorbet is the cultivar cousin of Gelato.  Its THC level is above average, and the strain is associated with lots and lots of euphoric joy.  It starts out with a bug wave of cerebral energy, before easing up into a state of tranquility, paired with a warming, soothing body high.  Its flavor is worth noting too, with its creamy, fruity, and minty taste.

#6: Durban Poison

With a staggering 24% THC, Durban Poison is one of the most popular 100% sativa strains on the planet.  It produces a deeply cerebral high that makes the head feel tingly, and it can keep you alert and focused throughout the day, while helping with creativity and sociability.  Perfect for when you need a pick-me-up during the afternoon hours, it’s so popular for a reason, and it has a sweet and earthy flavor profile.

#5: Purple Punch

Purple Punch is a crowd pleaser, since its high is reliable, offering exactly what you’re looking for when you want to sit back and unwind.  An 80% indica-dominant hybrid, it’s the type of strain to reach for after a long and stressful day, since its sedative-like nature makes it deeply relaxing – in fact, it’s a great choice for bedtime.  Its flavor profile is also pretty remarkable, tasting of plump grapes, rich vanilla cream, and aromatic spices.

#4: Gorilla Glue

Gorilla Glue is not for the faint of heart, with its whopping 26-28% THC.  It’s a 60% indica-leaning hybrid that can bend your mind and wipe out any and all mental activity.   If you’re going for the most faded high possible, Gorilla Glue is a clear choice, and it’s not surprising that a state with such a high tolerance would choose this one time and time again.  Its sour diesel flavor is a good indication of things to come, as it’s extremely pungent.

#3: Sour Diesel

Practically a household name throughout the worldwide cannabis community, Sour Diesel is a 90/10 sativa-dominant hybrid with a unique flavor of sour lemons and diesel, and its THC level is very high.  It’s a strain that can make you feel really stoned thanks to its hazy nature, all while allowing you to experience hours of euphoria.  If you’ve never partaken in this classic, you’re missing out.

Try: ELYXR Delta 8 Flower in Sour Diesel 

#2: Runtz

Runtz is one of the most recognizable names in the cannabis world, and New Mexico residents are all about this 50/50 hybrid.  Despite being balanced between sativa and indica, its effects are heavy on the indica side of things, and nodding off is extremely common once its high is at its peak.  Its psychoactive effects are also known for being way longer-lasting than most strains out there, keeping you high for hours, so bear that in mind.

#1: Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout Cookies, sometimes called GSC or just “Cookies,” is a strain that just seems to totally capture what so many of us are looking for out of a cultivar.  Very high in THC and slightly indica-leaning, the strain delivers enormous waves of euphoric bliss paired with utter calm, and a body high that will almost definitely bring you into couchlock about an hour or two after partaking.  And, its cookie-like taste alone makes it worthwhile.

The Colorful State is All About These Top-Shelf Strains

New Mexico has become something of a weed mecca over the last few years, and we couldn’t be more pleased to see that residents are becoming extremely strain-conscious, understanding how nuances in terpene profiles can make all the difference when it comes to both flavor and dominant effects of individual cannabis products.  If you want a convenient way to sample these strains, ELYXR has got you covered.
