Leafly Buzz: 13 top cannabis strains of November 2023

Published

on


Listen up, high-tolerance flavor-chasers who need that lip-smacking goodness that only modern exotics can deliver.

After another stressful sprint to Turkey Day, we all deserve some euphoric, indelible tastes to smoke and share.

Leafly’s monthly fire flower roundup for November includes flavors like Connected’s Cherry Fade, The Otherside’s new Sunrise Papaya, Cipher Genetics’ Chikitaz, and Candy Fumez grown by Greendawg.

As always, we tirelessly traveled up and down the Pacific coast, visiting contests, grows, pheno hunts, art openings, and stores. We scoured strain search trends and menus across the Western US—the world’s cannabis innovation epicenter—to distill this list of cheat codes to the best bong loads of November 2023. 

It’s a hard job, but someone’s gotta do it. #NoDaysOff. So here’s November 2023’s Leafly Buzz, another installment in our influential, three-years-running series of strain reports.

⬆ 23%

The Trop Cookies x Cherry Punch project from breeder Blockhead heads into the holidays with crazy momentum on the West Coast. Super Boof boosted up 23% month over month in views to its Strain Detail Page, capping an extraordinary year for the strain. Superboof makes for a great wake and bake weed, with hints of old-school Tangie, just with more body and dankness in gargantuan nugs. Hit the Superboof before Danksgiving to make annoying relatives more tolerable and amp up hunger for seconds.

Leafly Strain of the Year 2023 Jealousy nudges up 3.5% in traffic this month, capping an epic year that saw the elite Gelato project double its presence in stores nationally. Jealousy has risen to become the 24th most viewed strain in the database, up from 98th place this time last year. The creamy, berry, fuel-tasting strain has become the 48th most-ordered strain on Leafly, up from No. 339 in orders last year, and Jealousy took home at least four cannabis contest awards in 2023. Over 2,000 stores nationally now carry the LA-developed strain, showing how a wave of Jealousy washed over the US this year.

Sundae Driver

⬇ 15%

Breeder Cannarado’s cross of FPOG x Grape Pie shows its age with Sundae Driver getting into a bit of a fender bender and dropping 15% in monthly views. Smelling of grape, vanilla, and berry, with giggly happy, and relaxed effects—Sundae Driver will always work for cruising. But we’re seeing newer iterations of it like Devil Driver take the lead.

Super Silver Haze

⬆ 7.7%

Give up for classic Super Silver Haze, up 7.7% in views to the Strain Detail Page on the West Coast this month. This energetic sativa from the ‘90s pairs with that pre-Thanksgiving hike or run, with a spicy citrus skunky smell. Farmers grow Super Silver Haze as a commodity crop, with eighth-ounces going for just $15, leaving you some change in your pocket for our gift guide.

Candy Fumez

Oooh, wee—watch out for this Bloom Seed Co sweet, pungent hybrid uniting the tropical Z strain with the fuel and creamy berry of Sherbanger. A Candy Fumez from California growers Greendawg won ‘Best of the Rest’ at the Transbay Challenge V statewide Finals in LA in October. But honestly, it could have won the entire event. Bloom Seed Co worked with Boston Roots to improve the Z genetics with Sherbanger’s banging shape, size, density, and bling. Watch out for it in flower, and even more pungent extract.

Chikitaz

Compound Genetics’ foundational member Chris Lynch has evolved into his new label Cipher Genetics. The first to the session? Chikitaz—his cross of Banana Runtz to Gelato 41 and Z. You can see Chris not exactly playing it safe, but ensuring there’s money in the bank by working with these three top flavors. Seed packs go for $250 for 12 feminized seeds. San Francisco brand Sense hunts a keeper this fall—looking for that perfect, ephemeral twist of Tropical Banana on top of the best-selling Runtz. Just like a Hollywood blockbuster sequel—strain producers seek “the same but different” and Chikitaz promises to put up big numbers.

Pinnacle

There’s an old Pinnacle in the Leafly strain database comprised of aging strains Blue Dream and Hindu Kush. Set that aside. The new Pinnacle that everyone grew this fall comes from Oakland clone kings Purple City Genetics. PCG put together two bangers—Slurty 3 and Gush Mints—for a monster yielder that turns purple and tests over 28% so growers can stay in business. Gush Mints bring the polite minty note. Slurty 3 pairs Slurricane (Dosidos x Purple Punch) with Gelato #33. That’s a super-group of alleles chained together for a peak performance genetic. Look for bargains on outdoor and light-dep Pinnacle amid the flood of harvest season bud.

Tigerz Eye

San Francisco-based Compound Genetics keeps on rocking with Tigerz Eye, a cross of Jokerz 31 x GastroPop. That brings together two of Compound’s marquee strains Jokerz and GastroPop. The result? Ferocious THC power in an attractive, large purple, icy nug. It’s an indica-dominant hybrid designed for growers to get paid with notes of Gelato, figs, grapes, and floral fuel. Smoke this one after dessert to get heavy-lidded and watch reruns of “Elf.”

New on shelves

Sunrise Papaya by The Otherside

The new California premium brand The Otherside launches in more than 20 stores this fall with three flavors including the delicious Sunrise Papaya—a cross of Papaya and Lemon Cherry Gelato. This bag went fastest at my house. You get warm tropical fruit smells with a petrol undertone when you crack the bag. Grinding up and smoking yields soft ripe papaya, mixed with bright, citrus notes. The effect hits active, alert, and uplifting. LA-based The Otherside grows it in 50 to 60-pound batches, which means plenty to go around this winter. Also, 20% off all The Otherside ganja on Green Wednesday. 

Burning up the charts

Red Eye by Seed Junky Genetics

LA’s Seed Junky Genetics have had a banger year with Red Eye, their cross of Permanent Marker to Lemon Cherry Gelato. There’s no world in which this bag does not stink up your pocket or backpack. Permanent Marker made an indelible impression on lovers of purple weed with a confection and fuel nose. Lemon Cherry Gelato dominated menus nationwide this year. The bag design looks dope, and the nugs look big, dark, and icy with the Permanent Marker making the LCG more dense and pungent. This indica-hybrid will sit you down and can help you get to sleep on that red eye, or at least blunt the pain of taking a red-eye flight.

Ballin out

Cherry Fade by Connected

Cherry Fade from Connected is one of those special cultivars that truly knocks you on your ass. It dropped in late summer of 2023, a welcomed addition to the Fall lineup of flavors from Sacramento-based Connected. The hybrid gets its unique genetics from Red Pop crossed with Apples & Bananas #20. The cultivar was a stand-out from the Connected/Alien Labs 2023 pheno hunt, chosen by the Connected team before Ted could grab it, the Alien Labs founder told me in an interview earlier this year. It’s coveted by consumers for its densely packed purple, dark green, and orange nugs. The decadent, earthy, and fruit-forward strain impresses with a cherry cough syrup-like sweetness that coats the mouth and a rich, pungent nose. Don’t sleep on Cherry Fade.—Lindsey Bartlett

Ballin’ on a budget

Holy Moly! Smalls by Fig Farms

Size matters not in the Force—nor in tasty, strong weed. Save money this month by shopping at your local stores for “smalls”—the industry name for smaller-sized nugs that look cute, have a great personality, and get the job done on a budget. The thing about smalls in 2023—they’re not small at all. An industry race for size has made anything that’s not a massive 3.5-gram nug eligible for the ‘smalls’ category. The more for us. Holy Moly! consists of award-winning Fig Farms’ unique mix of Banana Fig x Animal Mints with a banana front note and Mexican mole finish and intense, psychedelic effects. 

High Note

Nobra Venom infused rosin pre-roll by CLSICS

Rosin rolls are pre-made marijuana cigarettes fortified with extra potency and flavor from a type of hash. If you want to level the smokers back home, break out one from California leaders CLSICS

On Nov. 16 in West Hollywood, San Diego rosin brand CLSICS and St. Helena, CA. artist Porous Walker released a comical new collaboration—the most-high “Nobra Venom” rosin-infused pre-roll. That’s a 2-gram flower joint infused with a half-gram of pure extract made using only heat, and pressure. 

CLSICS boss Matt Traut told me the roll contains a combination that’s half the hype strain Cadillac Rainbow (Pure Michigan x Runtz) and half a secret flavor, selected by artist Porous Walker. Walker also did the artwork, showing off his playful, ribald, yet controlled and minimal ink, colored pencil, and paper style. We do not recommend trying to interact with relatives on this High Note selection. 

And that’s a wrap for Leafly Buzz November. See you next month for Leafly Strain of the Year 2023 on Dec. 5, with runner’s up and more end-of-year fuego.

Fresh off some Memorial Day grilling and chilling, we have a baker’s dozen of elite weed picks to heat up your summer, Leafly Nation. 

We not only crawled the online menus, stores, and grow rooms. We threw a freaking weed festival—SF Weed Week—and invited all the dopest growers down. And you know what, the honey pot worked. We spent the last four weeks elbows deep in bags of hype trees. Here’s our unmissable hits of May:

Trop Cherry

Trop Cherry (aka Tropicana Cherry) keeps winning all summer, gang. Tropicana Cookies x Cherry Cookies F3 from Relentless Genetics out of Colorado leaves you focused, energetic, and creative. We need those attributes during the long days. It smells and tastes like it sounds—with tropical citrus, plus berry and tree fruit notes. “The best sativa I’ve had—bar none,” said one reviewer.

Lemon Tree

⬆️14%

Happy, energetic, and talkative, the modern classic Lemon Tree kept growing in popularity this month. It’s Lemon Skunk x Sour Diesel, so it has a serious punch. The lemon and diesel taste is just lip-smacking in the sun. 

Candy Fumez

⬆️12%

Hype growers and hashmakers like 710 Labs helped propel Candy Fumez to new heights in May. The breeder Bloom Seed Co made this strain to dump hash and satisfy the cracked sweet tooth of cannabis culture. Mission accomplished. It’s Z x Sherbanger and maybe the start of a new Era. “Anytime you can get your hands on this don’t make the mistake of buying small!,” said one Leafly reviewer.

Permanent Marker

⬆️11%

Give yourselves a high five, Leafly smokers, we did it. The Leafly Strain of the Year 2023 Permanent Marker has settled into a top 10 groove on the West Coast. Shop for phenomenal examples from Connected Cannabis Co., and CAM; plus new crosses from Seven Leaves, and badder from Arcata Fire.

True Ryder OG

As the real OGs become harder and harder to find—look North. Arcanna brand outdoor Mendocino County True Ryder OG didn’t last long on the review shelf this May. It’s a mix of Fire OG x (True Kush x Blue Dream) x Big Cherry (aka Sour Cookies) for that gassed-out peppery pine fuel fun. When you’ve earned some time lounging by the river, True Ryder OG will make the sunlight and the colors even better.

Peppermint Sleighride

(David Downs/Leafly)

May is still a peak season for 2023 outdoor—it’s all in how you store and cure it. You know who’s good at that? Emerald Cup-winning Greenshock Farms. They brought down some small batches of Peppermint Sleighride for SF Weed Week in April. We’ve been smoking through a half-ounce of it from Solful for the last month—returning to its candied grapefruit, pine, and mint taste, and its happy, present, and content feelings. It’s Purple Candy Cane x Pina from Mark at Greenshock, who also swears by those outdoor smells and effects.

Guava Runtz x Cherry Gushers

(David Downs/Leafly)

Turning to hype indoor flavors now, Bosky Genetics is burning up California with its pristine, loud, and potent lineup. Everything Bosky grows hits like a dump truck, but the Guava Runtz x Cherry Gushers has legit cherry terps that’ll make the heads swear, “GYAT!” Ryan Bosky melds decades of grow room experience with custom in-house flavors like this for small-batch, premium craft.

Randy Watson

Smoking through the Emerald Cup pre-roll judges kit in the sub-category hash holes put me on to Randy Watson—a cross of Runtz x Wedding Crashers. We’ve seen 710 Labs work with it and now the hash hole brand Dunkz. It’s dessert candy terps with more earthy funk. Randy Watson is an incidental character in Coming to America 1988, that’s become a pop culture reference.

Lemon Pepper by MOCA

(David Downs/Leafly)

Eureka, CA indoor living soil growers MOCA have some sativa to go with your sunshine—Lemon Pepper. It’s Lemon Cooler x Lemon Pebblez for super-lemony, but syrupy and dank. Not thin or grassy. For those who like Gelonade, gas, and lemon, you can work on Lemon Pepper. MOCA grows batches measured in pounds or tens of pounds, and they can’t keep them on shelves. This is a strong Buy.

Burning up the charts

Tangerine Sunrise by UpNorth

(David Downs/Leafly)

Start your day on UpNorth’sTangerine Sunrise for deep, candied tangie syrup and dank vibes with your cup of coffee. Sleep in, make some waffles, wake and bake, and get gardening. UpNorth has its pick of fine legacy producers in the Emerald Triangle and only brings out 6-star stunners. Tangerine Sunrise is a cross of Hawaiian Sunrise and Tangerine Haze. 

Best-sellers

Ballin out

Wagyu by Clout King

The brand Clout King brings fire to the masses in several states. One standout this quarter—their Wagyu. It’s a Meatbreath crossed with a Lemon Cherry Gelato, so the savory rank terps from the Meatbreath get dialed back by the crowd-favorite LCG. Leafly’s reviewers get unique apricot, chestnuts, and coffee notes off this strain. It leaves folks tingly, sleepy and relaxed. Some use it for stress and mood stabilization. That tracks, because after a big serving of Wagyu, good luck stressing about much of anything

Ballin’ on a budget

LA Pop Rocks x Purple Push Pop by Seven Leaves

One thing we love about legal weed—the joints and the nugs have gotten so much bigger. What they sell as “smalls” looks and smokes completely bomb. Sacramento, CA-based indoor brand Seven Leaves brought out smalls of candy sherbert strain LA Pop Rocks x Purple Push Pop, and it gets us there. It tests at 27% THC, which is plenty, and you pay for less stem.

High Note

We end with something fuerte. (Sasha Beck/Leafly)

Cherry Marker + Whitethorn Rose hash hole by Rosin Tech

(Courtesy Rosin Tech)

I’m judging the Emerald Cup pre-rolls this month, I don’t think most people are ready for the new “hash hole” era we find ourselves in. Rosin Tech Labs has a hash-loaded mega-joint that’s 1.3 grams of CAM Cherry Marker flower paired with 0.3 grams of Huckleberry Hill Farms Whitethorn Rose rosin. The rare cherry pheno of Permanent Marker smelled and tasted like cherries from the jar note to the dry hit to the burn. The delicate, floral, soaring Whitethorn Rose comes through when the rosin ignites. This joint could fade, like, 10 people. Smoke the whole thing with a buddy, and your day is over.


And that’s a baker’s dozen Leafly Buzz picks to round out May 2024. The action gets hot and heavy as travel and contest season ramp, so download the app and turn on notifications to scoop the zaza before the custies beat you to it.

How To Tell If Your Weed Is Bad

Published

on

By


A myth about cannabis is it is grown in healthy, organic atmospheres – which is frankly not true. Here is how spot bad weed.

Like corn, avocados and watermelons, cannabis is sometimes hard to tell if you got the right one.  Peaches, apples, and tomatoes are easy with a squeeze, but other plants are more of challenge. Impurities are pretty common and not all growing habitats are healthy – including indoor. While 50+% of the country has access to legal weed, illicit weed still is a big part of the market, especially in states which don’t allow weed and New York which has over 1,500 unlicensed stories selling who knows what.

RELATED: Why You Should Smell Your Weed Before Buying

Figuring out if your weed is good involves seeing, touching, and smelling your buds to check for contaminants. The more you use, the more you will be able to understand quickly. Here is how to tell if you weed is bad.

Visual Inspection

This can be done using the naked eye or a microscope. If the cannabis flowers are covered with too much shiny, crystalline substance, something could be afoot. During the harvest process, shake out buds and view the drop-off substances. Some impurities  might see include grains, crystals, or powders. If you cannot identify some of these substances, it might be good to take a pass.

RELATED: Why You Should Smell Your Weed Before Buying

Inspect by Feeling

Visual is one one or even the first step.  Pick up a bud to determine whether or not it crumbles or quickly dries out.

Smell and Taste Inspection

Before lighting up, take a whiff to get a better read. Although this only works if you’re familiar with what it should smells and tastes like. If you catch a hint or taste of chemicals or other unnatural substances, then you may have contaminated buds.

Inspect the Combusted Weed

When lighting rolled-up buds, check if it gives up sparks when inhaled. Also, check what the flame looks like immediately and after the weed is lit. If you hear a crackling sound when you drag on the buds, it is very possible the buds are contaminated.

Also, check the flavor and smell given of the weed; if an abnormal order is detected, stop inhaling.

Inspect The Leftovers

This is the last process. If the previous inspections did not give off any weird results, there’s still a need to observe the ash left behind. A non contaminated bud will leave dark gray ash, which is obviously dry and soft to touch. If you see jet black, hard or greasy ash, then your buds contain one or more contaminants.

Cannabis is often exposed, directly or indirectly, to contaminants. Common culprits include sugar, sand, fertilizer, hairspray, and industrial pesticides or fertilizers.

Sand is one of the natural residues that can slip past the inspection of even the most experienced cannabis connoisseurs. Sand is an unavoidable material in agricultural operations, so there’s a high chance it contaminates the products by accident. Some unscrupulous growers tend to add sand on purpose to their products because it gives the buds a shinier and heavier look. It is always advisable to shake out your buds and sift through the ground ones before packaging.

Usually in large grown operations, fertilizer can put consumers at risk of developing life-threatening ailments if inhaled. Many chemicals are used for credible reasons, such as protecting crops and maximizing growth. However,  the consumption of these hazardous chemicals over time can result in diseases such as neurotoxicity and asthma.

Other cannabis Contaminants to watch out for including fungus, mold and talc.

If you ever find yourself with contaminated cannabis buds or products, the severity of contamination determines whether or not you’ll have to dispose of them. Some contaminated buds can be cleansed with the proper materials. However, if you have no time to do this yourself, it’s best to throw them out.

It is always best to purchase from a licensed, legal store as products are more closely inspected and have more oversight to ensure consumer safety.

RELATED: Is Sticky Weed A Good Or Bad Sign?

The main objective of recognizing cannabis bud impurities is to ensure purer and smoother-hitting buds without taking in something harmful. Carefully check through your homegrown and purchased cannabis bids at all times, if not for anything, but stay safe.

May 2024 Leafly HighLight: Pink Runtz strain

Published

on

By


You’re running low on time. The cool moms of America deserve some fine, trendy, fragrant weed for Mother’s Day and Memorial Day campouts. They’ve earned some Pink Runtz.

Why? It’s a battle out there. Moms need something pretty, fragrant, and relaxing that lightens the mood. Bring on that strawberry, sweet, grapefruit taste. Cue the giggly, talkative, happy effects—Pink Runtz wins our Leafly HighLight strain for May, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, and beyond.

Around since at least 2020, Pink Runtz scores an average 4.6 out of 5 points after 334 ratings. 

It’s got the high THC that moms need after unloading all those freakin’ groceries all by herself again, good God. 

“The very first hit had the knot in my shoulder unwinding,” says one review.

One in four Pink Runtz smokers is hitting it for tension, mood, and life’s doo-doo.

“I’ve never been so happy and smiling while unclogging a toilet,” said another reviewer.

“My 13-year-old kid clogged the toilet. Here I am smiling, happy as a lark while I plunge this toilet with a rubber plunger. Probably in my top 5 all-time favorites.”

Pink Runtz packs flavor and a punch. So drink some water first, stay seated, and put your phone on airplane mode. It’s a relative of Leafly Strain of the Year 2020, Runtz.

“The smell is like a fruity pebbles almost. Crazy smell,” said one reviewer.

“Euphoric antidepressant. Great for social connection, being present, and open. Instant happiness,” said another.

ILGM and Phylos Bioscience empower homegrowers to reach their fullest potential with genetically stable F1 Hybrid seeds. Phylos has deciphered the genome of the cannabis plant, and selected for the markers of greatness. Shop the Phylos collab line of cannabis seeds from ILGM in three categories: Elite, Premium, and Autoflower. See Gelato Sunrise.

On the top shelf, indoor, small-batch flower brand Woodwide drops flawless Pink Runtz eighth-ounces for $55 by the end of the month in Northern California.

Oregon growers mass-produce Pink Runtz to get 1-gram joints down to $3 from Fire Dept. Even Seattle gets in on the $106 ounce of Pink Runtz from KIND.

Colorado makes a lot of Pink Runtz hash: $48 live resin 1-gram carts, and $20 grams of Tropical Pink Runtz caviar.

Oklahoma offers smokers better access and prices than Illinois: with $5 grams, $4 joints, $15 all-in-ones, and $10 dabs.

Gardeners—put some Pink Runtz in the ground right next to those tomatoes. Lots of stuff gets renamed, so expect a Gelato x Z plant, or some good, old Gelato #33. 

Either way, we’d start with some Karma Genetics Runtz crosses like Pink Pie, Pink Fritter, or Guava Runtz.

Blimburn sells Pink Runtz as feminized seeds and in automatic flowering.

One of the stand-out strains from 4/20 in San Francisco—the flawless Pink Guava from Sense Cannabis. Allegedly some Nepali Pink x Guava, it smells, tastes and feels like a refined variety of Guava Gelato. A little candy. A little dessert. The fuel notes add to the loudness. Again, if she already loves Runtz and Gelato, this conjures her best memory of it. 

Pink Boost Goddess

Keep the pink theme going for your goddess with this highly regarded sativa hybrid. Pink Boost Goddess—the award-winning heirloom strain from Northern California—turns super-pink in flower. It’s got a mellow, energetic, focused effect that works with yoga, hiking, cooking, and even chores. Scoop up perfectly cured, super-affordable jars of 2023 full-sun sativa hybrids during this peak season. Smoke sungrown in the sun, family.


And that’s four flower favorites for making every day Mothers Day this May, and beyond. Those gifts don’t buy themselves—so snap to it!

Hey, what’s ‘Leafly HighLight’?
