The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in Ohio

The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in Ohio

Ohio is one of the newest states to join the “legal weed” club, as recreational adult-use cannabis has finally become legalized as of November of 2023.  And, while it may be a little while before dispensaries start popping up in the state, what we do know is that residents of The Buckeye State aren’t exactly strangers to many of the popular cultivars out there, thanks to the legal hemp market which provides flower, dabs, and vapes that feature compliant psychoactive cannabinoids (think THC-P, delta 8 THC, etc.), paired with the cannabis strains enthusiasts know and love.

So, as residents await the sometimes tedious process of dispensary licensing in their areas, let’s look at the strains that Ohioans have already shown to favor this year.

Top 10 Strains That Ohioans Can Try

Let’s look at some strains that continue to perform quite well in The Heart of It All, based on consumer data and what we’ve heard from people who actually live in Ohio. 

#10: Trainwreck

A sativa-heavy strain with an 80/20 hybrid orientation, Trainwreck has an unusual name that is wholly appropriate once you feel that rush of cerebral energy slam into your cerebral cortex, only moments after exhaling.  The uplifting, stimulating high makes you feel extremely active and motivated, while the body feels warm and tingly.  It’s great for socializing, since it can make you feel chatty and giggly – but, be aware that this is best enjoyed by someone with a high tolerance.  Its flavor profile is dominated by notes of bright lemons and black pepper.

Try: ELYXR Delta 8 Cartridge 1 Gram in Trainwreck

#9: Girl Scout Cookies

One of the best-selling strains of all time, Girl Scout Cookies (aka Cookies) has taken the world by storm by seemingly nailing exactly what the majority of enthusiasts want.  Between its mouthwatering cookie-like taste and powerful THC level, this strain has it all, and it’s an indica-leaning hybrid that offers big 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.

#8: Amnesia Haze

Another mega-popular choice is Amnesia Haze, with its 80/20 sativa-leaning orientation.  Derived from prestigious landrace strains, it’s a great choice for someone looking to stay more focused and alert during the day, and it’s no surprise that it’s a common choice for ADHD patients.  The euphoric effects are strong with this one, helping boost your mood while commonly causing fits of giggles, especially if you’re enjoying it socially.  Its earthy and sweet taste is super pungent, and almost hash-like.

Try: ELYXR HHC Cartridge 1 Gram in Amnesia Haze

#7: Lemon Jack

Lemon Jack is a 70% sativa-dominant strain that’s climbed the popularity ladder quite a bit in the last couple of years.  Derived from Jack Herer and Lemon Kush, its lineage is prestigious, and its citrusy flavor is to die for, offering notes of zesty lemons and vanilla cream.  Largely because of its Kush genetics, the high is heady but not overstimulating, as the body will relax as a euphoric rush of energy makes your brain go to all kinds of new and exciting places.

Try: ELYXR Potion Blend Cartridge 1000mg in Lemon Jack

#6: Runtz

Runtz is one of the most sought-after strains of all time, and this 50/50 hybrid is a bit deceiving.  Despite being balanced between sativa and indica, its effects are heavy on the indica side of the spectrum, and don’t be surprised if you doze off 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.  And, its flavor is just like the name, which is always a nice plus.

Try: ELYXR Delta 8 Cartridge 1 Gram in Runtz

#5: Purple Punch

Purple Punch is an easygoing strain that is easy to fall in love with.  An 80% indica-dominant hybrid, it’s perfect for relaxing after a long day, since its sedating qualities help you feel totally at peace, both mentally and physically.  It’s a good bedtime strain as well.  Plus, its flavor profile is completely enticing, tasting of plump grapes, rich vanilla cream, and aromatic spices.

Try: ELYXR 1 Gram Joint (75mg Delta 8 THC) in Purple Punch

#4: Hawaiian Haze

Hawaiian Haze is an in-demand 50/50 hybrid with a yummy flavor profile of sweet tropical fruits, and it’s commonly recommended to people with various mood disorders because of its mood-balancing effects.  It’s a strain that you can take and remain focused and alert during the daytime hours, and because it’s not heavily sedating, it won’t make you fall asleep when you’re trying to stay productive.

Try: ELYXR Live Resin Delta 8 Cartridge 1 Gram in Hawaiian Haze

#3: Granddaddy Purple

Granddaddy Purple is one of the most recommended choices for people who want something to unwind with at the end of the day.  It’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, its THC level is very above average, so haziness is almost inevitable.  Often recommended to people with chronic stress and sleep issues, its mood-boosting yet calm properties are regarded as some of the very best in the cannabis world.

Try: ELYXR Delta 10 Flower in Granddaddy Purple

#2: Zkittlez

Zkittlez is a 70% indica-dominant hybrid, with a flavor that totally justifies its name, offering sweet, tangy, and fruity notes.  Its blissful high is beloved among North Carolinians, keeping them coming back for more.  Keep in mind that this is a sleepy strain, so it’s best reserved for nighttime, as the high can be very drowsy.  Overall, partakers love how much it lulls away stress and worry while delivering a sense of relief and release throughout the muscles.

Try: ELYXR Delta 8 Disposable Vape 1 Gram in Zkittlez 

#1: Blue Razz

Blue Razz is a top go-to in the state, being a 60/40 indica-leaning hybrid with a moderate amount of THC, making it more novice-friendly.  Berry flavor really comes across with this one, and its ‘high’ can lift your mood and enhance your ability to focus, without making you feel wired or on edge.  But, before long, it starts to get sedating, with your limbs feeling heavier and your mind getting emptier, making it a great nighttime option.
