Marijuana Strains Popularity

Our Most Popular Marijuana Strains

Here at Mountain Annie’s marijuana dispensaries, we see how popular certain marijuana strains are compared to others.

This is hardly surprising. Cannabis has more than 700 strains to choose from. As more cannabis producers get involved in cannabis cultivation, new strains emerge, blending qualities and properties from various pre-existing strains.

With so much choice, there is no need to go down the beaten path: there will always be a strain that satisfies your needs and covers your mental and physical wellbeing. That’s why we always ask our customers to tell us what their health expectations are so we will find the perfect strain that matches their needs.

Let’s shine a spotlight on some of our most popular strains. But first, let’s examine the two main varieties of marijuana.

What Are Marijuana Strains?

The cannabis plant comprises three main varieties: Indica, Sativa, and Ruderalis. Of these three, Indica and Sativa are the most common. When an Indica and a Sativa are interbred, they create a hybrid.

As more interbreeding occurs between these varieties, it is increasingly harder to clearly categorize strains according to their variety.

Many believe that Sativa cannabis varieties cause a more uplifting and invigorating effect, as opposed to Indica, which is mainly used to help with relaxation and overall mood boost.

This is because of the commonly held belief that Indica strains contain more CBD, thus are more geared to relaxation and sleepiness. Conversely, Sativa strains are widely thought to have higher levels of THC, thus leading to a more intense feeling of activity and energy.

However, with the advent of so many new strains, this distinction is not clear-cut. To be certain about the variety of a strain, we need to run a chemical test. Similarly, the differentiation as to the effects of each cannabis strain is not as definitive as people believe.

How Should I Choose My Cannabis Strain?

The first and best step is to visit a reputable cannabis dispensary like Mountain Annie’s and discuss your needs and expectations with your budtender.

Budtenders have immense experience and knowledge about cannabis strains. They will guide you in finding the strain that best matches your needs. Once you have tried a marijuana strain, you will gauge how your body responds to it. On your next visit to Mountain Annie’s, you can tell us about your experience and we will hone our search accordingly.

Popular Marijuana Strains

From our own experience, we have developed a list of some of our most popular marijuana strains. Many have a high THC content. While there are many reasons why you may prefer a high-THC content marijuana strain, strains with a high CBD content may reduce the possibility of undesirable side effects such as raising your blood pressure.

Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel will leave you feeling happy and relaxed and yet mentally focused. Its high THC content, which reaches 26%, is offset by the presence of CBD and CBN that dampen the extremes of THC. This is why Sour Diesel manages to provide relaxation and focus at the same time.

We have Sour Diesel concentrate from the company Green Leaf to help you relax your body without losing your mental acuity.

Blue Dream

Blue Dream has a high THC content, which reaches up to 24%. Just like Sour Diesel, however, this is partly counterbalanced by the presence of CBD.

Focus and energy are the first affects your body and mind may experience, followed by a general sense of physical and mental relaxation and wellness. The coziness and warmness in the end help with anxiety and stress.

We carry O.Pen’s Daily Strains Blue Dream Cartridge for our customers who want the best of cannabis: start with motivation and finish with a relaxed overall sensation.


Gelato is a calming and relaxing marijuana strain that may leave your brain stimulated and energetic. It has a high THC content, reaching up to 23%. Our stores carry excellent Gelato buds from Bonsai Cultivation.

Durban Poison

Sweet-smelling and brimming with cannabinoids, Durban Poison is a great choice for those looking for an energy boost. It has an average of 21% of THC and may help those looking to combine relaxation and wellbeing while still keeping a clear head.

We carry Willie’s Reserve Durban Poison cartridges if you are looking to be dynamic throughout a demanding day while remaining in a relaxed and positive mental state.

Green Crack

With 16% THC, Green Crack is a gentle yet powerful marijuana strain. Our customers choose it for its uplifting and energizing qualities, particularly when creativity and focus are necessary. It offers an inspiring effect that helps people get out of bed and start their creative process.

It is often preferred by customers in search of inspiration and an energy boost, who buy our Daily Strains Green Crack Cartridge from O.Pen.

Strawberry Cough

Another great strain for those looking for creativity and productivity, Strawberry Cough is a sweet and soft hybrid with an herbal aroma. Problem-solvers seem to like its effect on creativity and focus. Strawberry Cough can also help with mental relaxation and wellbeing, for example, if you are anxious about something.

Bonanza supplies us with Strawberry Cough cartridges for customers interested in lifting up their creativity and soothing their worries.

Blueberry Kush

Blueberry Kush is a calming and relaxing cannabis strain that will help your brain calm down after a hectic day. Everyday stress and anxiety can damage our mental state and Blueberry Kush may help you regain your positivity and mental relief. If sleep seems to elude you, this cannabis strain may help your mind relax and support a good night’s sleep.

If you are looking for mental rest and a loosening of your anxieties, you can try our Bonanza Blueberry Kush Cart to help stop the wheels spinning in your head.
