Wedding Cake: Sweet, fluffy, soft. Smokers nationwide love this strain. That’s why it’s no surprise it started and ended the year as the most popular strain in Connecticut.
GG4: For four months out of 2022, GG4 held the top spot in Leafly’s 2022 strain ratings.

Ice Cream Cake: Another essential dessert strain that America is eating up from coast to coast. In Connecticut particularly, smokers are searching for this flavor with urgency, thanks to its intense pain relief.

Gelato: this exotic staple is a favorite of both growers and shoppers who swear by the sweet taste, intense effects, and resilient genetics.
Blue Dream: This throwback classic still gets love in Connecticut. Some terps never go out of style.
Apple Fritter: A sweet bowl of this pungent hybrid will put hair on your chest (just kidding, but it will lay you out).
Oreoz : Connecticut can’t get enough of this sweet and dark strain that is associated with deep relaxation and creative sparks.
Jealousy works in greenhouses as well.

Mac 1: This sleeper pick started and ended the year at number 10. Expect an old school funk and intense high that will be sure to keep it on our radar throughout 2023.
