Bailey Rahn and Dante Jordan contributed to this article.

Every region is different when it comes to strain availability. What might be easy to find on the West Coast might be almost impossible to come by on the other side of the country. Here, we take a look at the top 10 strains offered in Colorado dispensaries and shops.

What do we mean by “top strains,” you might ask? We gathered menu data from all of our Colorado locations and determined the 10 most commonly listed strains. These are closely aligned with the most frequently searched strains in Colorado, so store owners might want to take note when thinking about strain inventory.

1. Blue Dream

Which major market isn’t dominated by Blue Dream? With a widely recognized name, a fragrant berry aroma, and pleasantly uplifting effects, it comes as no surprise that this ubiquitous hybrid tops Colorado’s inventory list.

2. Durban Poison

The second most popular strain in Colorado traveled far from its African homeland to share with us its lively effects. Stimulating euphoria feeds the mind creativity and focus, which goes to show why so many compare Durban Poison to a cup of coffee and use it as such.

3. Original Glue

Original Glue is a champion of many Cannabis Cups so it makes sense why it’d be the third most popular strain in Colorado. This complex cross of Chem’s Sister , Sour Dubb , and Chocolate Diesel has an earthy taste and potent effects that leaves you…wait for it…glued to the couch.

4. Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel is by no means a rarity among Colorado shops and dispensaries. Its engaging cerebral energy is a perfect pair for getting outside and staying active, and in a state with so much outdoor recreation to enjoy, it makes sense that Sour Diesel has maintained its demand in Colorado.

4. Golden Goat

Born and bred just over the border in Kansas, Golden Goat has retained its supremacy in Colorado since its westward arrival when medical cannabis was making its debut. While some in Colorado might grow weary of seeing Golden Goat at every corner, this fragrant tropical staple is must-try for visitors from outside the state.

6. OG Kush

A famous California staple with legs in all markets, OG Kush needs no introduction. You know its legendary status, you know it has a skunky aroma with spicy tones, and you know that it has been crossed with everything under the sun, which has given us plenty of favorites like GSC and Headband .

7. Green Crack

Its name may be unsavory to some, but that hasn’t kept this strain from flying off the shelves of storefronts across Colorado. Green Crack has an uncanny ability of bringing laughing fits to social circles and engaged focus to solo ventures.

8. Wedding Cake

A strain that seems to be having a strong moment, Wedding Cake is a cross of GSC and Cherry Pie . It’s sweet and earthy, boasts a high THC content, and would be perfect for relaxing after a nice hike to-and-from Dream Lake.

9. Granddaddy Purple

Another California staple that has spread all over the world, Granddaddy Purple is Purple Urkle and Big Bud crossed together. It has a berry aroma and hits most consumers with deep relaxation perfect for sitting around on one of the 300+ days of sunshine Colorado gets.

10. GSC

The Cookie craze may have started in California, but it certainly didn’t end there. Colorado natives were quick to embrace the potent GSC, making it the sixth most stocked strain in the state. For those who have experienced this hybrid’s heavy-handed euphoria, it isn’t hard to imagine why this strain is an absolute necessity for Colorado dispensaries and shops.

The Top 5 Cannabis Strains in Colorado for 2019 – Available at The Lodge

The top 5 cannabis strains in Colorado for 2019 have finally arrived, and while some of these may have seemed like clear front runners throughout the year, others will probably surprise you. All of these are, of course, high-quality cannabis strains. They are all also available at The Lodge Cannabis, where you can also find solventless concentrates from 710 LABS or Green Dot. Without any further ado, let’s see what 2019 rolled in for us!

1. OG Kush

A hybrid strain that tends toward indica by roughly a 3:1 ratio, OG Kush is a perennial favorite. Straight out of California, it offers a unique combination of exciting pleasure and irresistible relaxation, first sending you into a whirl of glee and then planting you softly into your seat, where you will remain until it is time to take another toke. Reliably powerful, it is the go-to strain for many seasoned smokers, who know that they can trust its reputation for high levels of THC.

2. Wedding Cake

Citrus and delicious, Wedding Cake is a close relative of OG Kush, and its indica-sativa balance is similar to its predecessor. Offering more of a balance between relaxation and excitement, Wedding Cake is slightly less overpowering than OG Kush tends to be. It offers a mellow high that will not put your head into too much of a spin.

3. Durban Poison

Another longtime classic, Durban Poison is a fun and potent cannabis strain that is heavily sativa. If you are looking to get things done, setting a list for yourself and powering through it on your day off, Durban Poison may be precisely the strain that you need. It will pick you up, put a smile on your face, and motivate you to do everything you have been meaning to do.

4. Gelato Cake

A descendant of Wedding Cake (and thus a descendant of OG Kush), Gelato Cake is slightly more indica than either of its predecessors. Much more likely to put you on your back and rock you to sleep than its sativa-heavier relatives, it may be the solution that you need if you are facing challenges and simply need to tune out and kick back for a while.

5. Green Crack

Green Crack will send you up into the clouds, giving you the buzz that you want if you are going to a club or party. It is strong sativa capable of exceptionally high levels of THC, and again and again, it does not disappoint.

All the strains on this list are available at both our locations. To try them out and see what else we have in store for you, you can check out the Lodge, which was nominated as one of the top Best 13 dispensaries last year. Our goal is to be your local cannabis boutique, striving to offer you the high-quality weed you love and expect from us.
