Must Try Cannabis Strains

Summer time is here, and our shelves are hot with exciting cannabis strains to test out. Check out this list of must-try strains to stock up on when you’re shopping for new nugs: you won’t want to miss this season’s best flowers and flavors.

Ice Cream Cake: Ice Cream Cake is a rare, Indica-dominant super strain rumored to be bred from Wedding Cake and Gelato #33. It’s been crowned Leafly’s Strain of the Year thanks to its’ flavor, potency, and elevated THC content. These buds are colored like mint ice cream, with dark purple leaves popping up like chocolate chips swirled into the sweetness. It has a sensational, sugary flavor that has a hint of vanilla on the exhale. Ice Cream Cake leans toward the indica side, so give it a try during a chill night with friends or while listening to your favorite album.

Try Ice Cream Cake from Weed Me or Edison!

Citrus Punch: For a power packed burst of tropical flavor, add a few nugs of citrus punch to your stash. Tangerine and orange flavor stand out in this flower, and so do its colorful leaves. This emerald green bud is generously coated in trichomes and woven with bright orange hairs for a potency you can actually see. Citrus Punch is a sativa-dominant strain, so it’s great for stimulating conversation with friends or making the most of a sunny beach day.

Try similar genetics of this strain in WINK's Mmmosa, Wagner's Purple Clementine, or as a citrus terpene inspired beverage like XMG!


Cold Creek Kush: This silver medal winning strain was bred from impressive parents. Its genetics include MK Ultra, an infamously potent Indica, and Chemdawg 91, an original landrace strain. These buds are beautiful to look at, with long red hairs wrapping around each nug and a strong pine fragrance to boot. Cold Creek Kush is a balanced indica strain, perfect for enjoying the great outdoors or even just a good movie in bed.

Try Cold Creek Kush from Redecan or Vertical!

Glueberry OG: A rare, highly sought-after hybrid strain, Glueberry OG brings on the best of both worlds with every smoke. This coveted bud is bred from the legendary OG Kush, Gorilla Glue, and Blueberry parent strains. This balanced hybrid has piney, earthy flavors on the exhale with a subtle hint of citrus, thanks to its complex terpene profile. Note that this bud brings on a heavy body high, so expect a bout of couch lock after a few good tokes.

Blue Dream: Blue Dream is one of the most popular, legendary buds in the cannabis market.

Girl Scout Cookies: OG Kush and Durban Poison were bred to birth Girl Scout Cookies, a hard-hitting strain not for the faint of heart. This bud brings on the munchies hard, thanks to its high THC percentage that all but knocks you on your feet. Girl Scout Cookies is a world famous strain that’s great for clearing your mind after a long day, so keep a few nugs on hand for those days when you need an escape that’s just a few hits away. These buds are just as bountiful, dense and colorful as they are potent, so be sure to grab some if you’re lucky enough to catch it in stock.
