The Most Popular Weed Strains in California Right Now

With Proposition 64 finally putting an end to the criminalization of cannabis in California, weed has never been more popular. To celebrate, we reviewed and cross-checked both individual strain data and customer feedback to compile a list of the ten of the most popular weed strains in California right now.

Most Popular Weed Strains in California 

Girl Scout Cookies

A Bay Area favorite, Girl Scout Cookies is an indica-dominant, OG Kush and Durban Poison hybrid that has grown steadily in reputation over the last few years. Also known as GSC, the strain was designed by the industry-renowned Cookie Family in the mid 90s and came to prominence in 2010. Although its precise lineage is still subject to debate, Girl Scout Cookies is noted for its balance as both an intense body-relaxant and a mild cognitive stimulant. GSC packs 18-23% THC, making it the perfect choice for those looking for a potent, long-lasting pain relief or for patients having difficulties getting some shut eye. GSC is best taken in the afternoon or at night-time, when its appetite-stimulating and sleep-inducing qualities are most desirous.

OG Kush

OG Kush is as California as avocados, the Beach Boys and El Capitan. Hailing from the San Fernando Valley, the strain has long been the torch-bearer of West Coast weed culture and it remains today one of the most popular cannabis strains in the world. It’s a hybrid with a reputation, an almost mystical back story, and some serious THC: Coming in with THC levels somewhere between the 19-26%, OG Kush is a dense strain that’s earned its place in weed folklore.

Named after the American cannabis activist and author of the iconic novel The Emperor Wears No Clothes, Jack Herer is a three-way cross between Haze, Northern Lights #5, and Shiva Skunk. The strain’s cross-genetics are famous for producing a sativa-dominant effect characterized by cerebral clarity and general euphoria.

Blue Dream

Blue Dream is California. Hailing directly from the Golden State, it was first created by crossing a Blueberry indica with a Haze sativa. It is supposedly a 50-50 strain, but due to the distinct, cerebral high it produces, many mistake it as a sativa-dominant hybrid. Blue Dream produces very subtle cerebral effects that leave you feeling invigorated, creative, and euphoric, while simultaneously numbing the body, a character that has led many to consider Blue Dream ‘the perfect daytime smoke.’

Type: Sativa dominant hybrid
THC levels: 17-24%

It is extremely popular across the nation and has earned its place in this list of California’s most popular weed strains. The powerful indica is a cross between two iconic cannabis strains, Big Bud and Purple Urkle, and it’s famous for producing a very intense body “high” that leaves many people locked to their couch even after only using a small amount.

Jet Fuel OG

Jet Fuel OG is a popular, California grown strain, and it just screams Golden State. Fuely and pungent, this strain has one hell of a personality, so much so that B-Real gave it 5 out of 5 green thumbs. And B-Real knows what he’s talking about. Its heavy effect is the perfect end to those California days and, while Jet Fuel OG might be a little tricky to track down, once you find it, you’ll be hella happy you did.

Gelato

Gelato is another strain from renowned growers Cookie Farm Genetics, the makers of another feature in our list of the most popular weed strains in California, Girl Scout Cookies. This hybrid strain is a cross between Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and its known as one for the connoisseur. Gelato’s a known THC powerhouse that packs one hell of a punch. And while its primary effects are relaxation and euphoria, it can quickly prove too much for the inexperienced patient. For those who are experienced enough to properly regulate their input, though, you’ll find Gelato to be a good strain to remain productive during the day and perfectly relaxed during the night. You’ve just got to get your doses right.

Khalifa Kush

Khalifa Kush, or Wiz Khalifa’s KK, is a strain that is as renowned as its namesake: Rap artist and North Dakota native Wiz Khalifa. And although this strain is still somewhat on the down-low (it’s not technically available to the public, yet), the strain remains widely available throughout the Golden State. Much like the man it’s named after, the strain is the epitome of chill. Its hybrid make-up promotes happiness, relaxation and a long-lasting sense of euphoria, while the active cerebral buzz it guarantees makes it the perfect strain for any time of the day.

Strain Data

Type: Indica dominant hybrid
THC levels: 24-27%
