Like an incumbent beauty pageant winner hands over her crown, Blue Dream’s time in the sun as the best selling strain of cannabis appears to be over. There’s a new girl in town and she’s outpacing Blue Dream as the best selling strain according to market data. It’s time to get to know her.
It has many of the best loved qualities of some of the most popular strains and really shows off how genetics and cultivation impact the quality of cannabis.
How Are Cannabis Strains Different?
First, a quick crash course in different strains of cannabis. Every strain of cannabis is a little different just like tomatoes. A Pink Lady tomato looks, feels and tastes different than a plum tomato and Sour Diesel is likewise different from Chemdawg.
Each strain is different because of different combinations of terpenes, different ratios of cannabinoids, and whether they are sativas, indicas or hybrids. They produce different feelings, taste different, and have unique qualities that some people seek out.
Knowing your strains isn’t just for weed connoisseurs. This information is especially valuable to people with medical conditions who are using cannabis as a medical treatment. It’s also becoming big business to build better marijuana strains.
Skilled and experienced growers are emboldened by decriminalization and it’s safe to expect some fire weed in the future.
Meet Gorilla Glue #4
Speaking of better marijuana strains, Gorilla Glue #4 is the brainchild of GG Strains and kind of a marijuana super band. Because it’s a sativa indica hybrid, it produces euphoric and sedative effects at the same time. It also comes from a great family. Chem’s Sister, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel all contributed genetics to create this new star.
Gorilla Glue #4 is sticky, smelly, and dense. This strain racked up credentials with top wins at the 2014 Cannabis Cup in LA and Michigan. Thereafter, it won first place at the High Times Jamaican World Cup. That’s a lot of crowns for this debutante to roll with.
Gorilla Glue #4 Sells More In 2017 Than Blue Dream
Blue Dream was the previous top seller in the industry and held the title since 2014. Since then, GG#4 has been gaining on it, however. It was the second best selling strain in 2016 and current evidence suggests Gorilla Glue #4 is going to far outpace Blue Dream this year in sales.
In fact, the Weed Wild West isn’t buying anywhere near as much Blue Dream as they did before. Sales have dropped significantly in California. GG#4 isn’t going to squander this opportunity to become the best selling strain of cannabis.
