At the time of this writing, cannabis is decriminalized in the Constitution State, and medical marijuana (MM) is legal, so you may be wondering what marijuana strains are the most popular in Connecticut. However, MM patients are used to strains being identified as a numbered cultivator in state-licensed pharmacies since “street names” of cannabis aren't allowed in these establishments. This can make identifying well-known cannabis varieties challenging, so for your convenience, here we highlight the six most popular marijuana strains in Connecticut.
1. Granddaddy Purple
One of the most popular strains of marijuana in the Nutmeg State is Granddaddy Purple, a world-famous indica variety that's used to treat many ailments, including body pain, muscle spasms, mental stress, and insomnia. Granddaddy Purple produces large, dense, colorful buds that offer the aroma and flavors of sweet grapes and berries.
2. Green Crack
Green Crack (also known as “Cush”) is an earthy sativa that's sought-out for its ability to instill an energetic, focused cerebral experience that's ideal for daytime use. This marijuana strain offers a tangy taste of tropical fruit and sweet citrus.
3. Bubba Kush
World-famous and potent, Bubba Kush is an in-demand marijuana strain in the Nutmeg State, in part for its ability to instill a heavy sedation over the whole body. Bubba Kush has an earthy, wood-like flavor and is effective for relieving stress and elevating one's mood.
One of the most popular hybrids in Connecticut is Headband, a potent variety that tastes of sour lemons and diesel fuel. Headband offers long-lasting relief from body pain and mental anxiety.
Chemdawg is a pungent hybrid of mysterious origins, but famous for its distinct diesel-like aroma and parent strain of several famous varieties. Chemdawg is also known for its potency, as it consistently tests at nearly 20% THC levels, and for instilling an intense cerebral experience.
6. Skywalker OG
An oft-asked for marijuana strain in Connecticut cannabis dispensaries is Skywalker OG, a potent indica-dominant hybrid that relaxes both the body and mind. Skywalker OG smells of spices and diesel, and its smoke offers a mix of sweet, earthy flavors.
