The new decade is officially upon us—welcome to 2020! The legal cannabis industry is truly picking up steam nationwide as the New Year rang in legalization for the state of Illinois. 2019 brought about a crazy slew of new popular strains, many of which have taken over as the new go-to strain for our regulars. We thought it’d serve our customers, new and old, to see what the top five strains are at Diamond Green since the New Year.
The legal cannabis industry on the West Coast is undoubtedly stepping up the game with genetics and unique cultivars. On the retail-side of Washington’s i502 industry there has been incredible diversity with different strains appearing and others disappearing from shelves. For example, within the last year alone the Wedding Cake strain has risen to apex popularity. Overall, there’s been a noticeable surge in the presence of savory strains, or strains whose names come from desserts like Tiramisu, Ice Cream Cake, and Gelato.
Top Five Strains At Diamond Green
Narrows – Lemon Meringue ($20/eighth)
Right off the top, a savory strain! This sativa-dominant delicacy comes from Exotic Genetix, with Narrows cultivating the genetics properly. Terpinolene is surprisingly the most dominant terpene in this strain, which lends to a super fruity, citrusy taste.
Black Cat – GG #4 ($40/eighth)
GG #4 (formerly known as Gorilla Glue) is your classic sit-down weed. The more you smoke of it, the more you’ll want to relax. This is an award-winning indica-leaning hybrid strain for a reason—it offers a pleasant high to calm anyone down after a stressful day.
Cedar Creek – Chemdawg ($40/eighth)
Cedar Creek is a shop favorite for their consistently potent cannabis. Chemdawg is the kind of gassy strain that when grown right, will take you on a euphoric stoney adventure. This potent strain literally reeks of musky, gassy terps, with a mixture of an almost ammonia-like stench.
Mfused – Banana Kush Cartridge ($40/1g)
Prepare to be taken away to a tropical journey where the bananas also taste like straight-up gas. Mfused does a fantastic job at bringing out real strain-specific flavors. They’ve outdone themselves yet again with their Banana Kush oil that really tastes just like that—bananas and kush!
Lifted – Wedding Cake ($45/eighth)
Here it is—arguably the most popular strain in Washington state at this very moment. Cakey, sweet, yet doughy terps await you with this new staple indica strain. Lifted Cannabis has done the cultivar tremendous justice with their favorable offering of the genetics.
