With the growing range of weed strain, you may wonder if you are in a cannabis dispensary or a bakery when you see strain names such as Mango Brûlée, Cherry Pie, Lemon Cake or
Gelato. As if picking a weed strain without thinking about food is not tough enough, new marijuana strains that are named after desserts are all over dispensary shelves these days. This trend started with the Cookie Fam way back in 2010 when the epic network of pot breeders crafter the original GSC Thin Mints strain (King Crop). So many people tried to imitate this strain, and Cookie Fam continued to impress the cannabis community with more sweet treats such as Gelato and Sunset Sherbet. Soon enough, the idea of naming weed strains after desserts became popular across the industry.
Whether you prefer fruity, sweet or minty flavours, there is a range of weed strains to add to your dessert menu. Here are some of our picks of the best strains to tickle your sweet tooth this year.
Lemon Banana Sherbet
Lemon Banana Sherbet weed is made from crossing Sour Banana and Lemon Skunk strains. This beauty is brought to us by the folks at Crockett Family Farms and grown by FloraCal. The Lemon Banana Sherbet cannabis strain contains a high level of limonene and has a dominant aroma of sharp, tangy lemon. When the buds are ground up, you are able to pick up notes of ripe banana and gas. This strain gives a creamy and smooth smoke, just like sherbet!
This strain was brought to us by the Greendawg Collective, and it was the flower with the best smell sold at Barbary Coast. The plant itself has vivid lime green buds that are covered in orange hairs. It has an aroma similar to Tangie and comes with a THC level of 16.7%. Orange Cookies weed is not that potent, so it is perfect for a daytime smoke.
This strain is rich in sweet, blueberry flavours that will whet your appetite. In terms of the aroma, its distinct smell fills any room. Red Beard Farms is the only place where you can find the flowers from this brand. It has a THC potency of around 15% and is perfect for connoisseurs who want a great flavour that brings on a pleasant high that will not overwhelm the senses. Blueberry Muffins weed is a variant of this strain and can be found in many decent dispensaries.
This strain is crafted by Gold Seal SF, and Mochi is one of their best creations. It is created by crossing Thin Mint Cookies and Sunset Sherbet strains. This indica-dominant hybrid has purple buds covered in trichomes. It has a THC level of 16.9% and is perfect for smoking at the end of a long day or week.
Key Lime Pie
Key Lime Pie cannabis is growing in popularity. The strain is created by Monterey Kush Co. and has a strong potency of about 21% THC. It has a tasty citrus lime flavour and tones of tart green apples. The high from this smoke will wake up all your senses in a way that can overwhelm new smokers and people with a low THC tolerance.
