Have you ever wondered how many strains of weed there are? Among indicas, sativas, and hybrids, it’s nearly impossible to keep track of the ever growing catalog. What’s more, the cannabis scene is always evolving. It seems like every week, an enterprising breeder comes out with new marijuana strains.
Sometimes, it can be hard to keep track of what’s popular and what’s not receiving rave reviews. Don’t worry. We’re here to help. In this post, we’ll cover some of today’s most popular cannabis strains.
Top 4 Strains of Weed
With this weed strains list, we’ve distilled a lot of information. Some of the strains we’ve included come from our list of best sellers. That makes them popular among consumers. Other strains are some of our top staff picks, giving you an insider’s view on the hottest marijuana strains of 2022.
Cookies & Cream #6
One of our top staff picks for 2022 is Cookies & Cream #6. This well-balanced hybrid clocks in at 23% THC, making it a serious heavy hitter. Since it’s a hybrid, it may affect each user differently. However, it tends to not overwhelm in any single direction. You won’t get too tired, and its cerebral, uplifting effects are tempered by its relaxing vibes. A cross between the illustrious Girl Scout Cookies and Starfighter, this is a great weed strain for anyone who wants to experience the best that the Cookies genetic line has to offer.
If you haven’t heard of Runtz yet, you may be living under a metaphorical rock. This illustrious strain clinched an award in the 2021 People’s Choice Michigan Cannabis Cup in multiple categories. Leafly, the online cannabis database, even named Runtz its 2020 Strain of the Year. With its sour-sweet flavor and huge potency (which regularly blasts past 20% THC), Runtz is the kind of strain that you need to experience at least once in your life. Give this Zkittlez and Gelato cross a try!
Garlic isn’t really a flavor that comes to mind when you think of tasty weed strains. But Garlic Z’s herbaceous, earthy flavor both invokes a garlic-y taste and keeps you puffing for more. Its THC content is a little more reigned in, usually reaching the high teens. That makes it a great choice for newer cannabis users. When you couple Garlic Z’s indica vibes with its deliciously earthy taste, you’ve got a strain whose popularity is a no-brainer.
If you’re looking for a balanced hybrid with an enjoyable blend of effects, Angel Cake is the way to go. Sometimes called “Angel Food Cake,” this true 50/50 hybrid has a THC content that can reach the high teens. It has a flavor profile that combines notes of lavender and other flowery herbs with a spicy/sweet combo. Angel Cake is also somewhat rare, so you want to take a toke whenever you get a chance to have your cake and eat it, too.
