Colorado Prefers Sativa: Where to find the most popular weed strains
Despite the plethora of marijuana strains Colorado cannabis consumers have to choose from, more often than not, they reach for the Sativa varieties. According to a recent report in Business Insider, the most popular marijuana strains in Colorado are sativas or sativa dominant hybrids. The report was based on an analysis of point-of-sale data provided by a large sampling of Colorado marijuana dispensaries. The three strains named in the report as the most popular marijuana strains in Colorado are all sativa-dominant: Blue Dream, Durban Poison, and Bruce Banner #3. If you're wondering where to find blue dream in Denver, or where to find Durban Poison in Denver or the famed Bruce Banner #3, read on. We’ve also included information on the effects, genetics, and origins of these top 3 marijuana strains to shed some light on what makes these particular buds the most popular weed strains in Colorado.
Blue Dream is the #1 Most Popular Strain in Colorado. It's easy to find blue dream in Denver as many marijuana dispensaries keep it in stock. A cross between Haze, a powerful sativa, and Blueberry, a fragrant and potent indica, blue dream originated in California, where it remains a popular strain. Blue Dream produces a relaxed and joyful high without causing drowsiness, and it tastes and smells like blueberries. It tests at anywhere from 17% to 24% THC, so it's a pretty reliable strain that seldom disappoints. Denver isn’t the only place where Blue Dream is “highly” popular, either. According to Leafly Blue Dream is also the most popular marijuana strain in Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle, Portland, Tacoma, Phoenix, and several other cities where medical and/or recreational weed is legal. You can find blue dream in Denver at many medical and recreational dispensaries including Livwell and The Green Solution Northglenn. These stores often offer marijuana coupons for blue dream deals and other dispensary deals and weed discounts on CannaSaver.
The second most popular marijuana strain in Colorado is Durban Poison. Originating in Africa, Durban Poison is a pure sativa that tests at 16% to 25% THC. It has a sweet, earthy taste and smell. Unlike indica that can slow you down and give you that heavy, sleepy feeling, Durban Poison is almost energizing in its effects. With thick, chunky buds that are coated in sparkling trichomes, Durban Poison is a popular marijuana strain throughout Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, and pretty much everywhere else that it's available. You can find durban poison in Denver at Life Flower Dispensary or pick up some Durban Poison clones at Karmaceuticals.
Bruce Banner #3
Coming in at #3 is, coincidentally, bruce banner #3. One of three variations of the popular Bruce Banner strain, Bruce Banner #3 is a cross between OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel. It was created by Delta 9 labs. A popular marijuana strain in Colorado, Michigan, Oregon, and Washington, Bruce Banner #3 is famed for its quick acting euphoric and calming effects. It has a spicy, earthy, and citrusy flavor and smell. Bruce Banner #3 is considered to be the strongest and best of the Bruce Banner phenotypes. You can find Bruce Banner #3 in Colorado at Native Roots dispensary , Buddy Boy Brands dispensary and other marijuana dispensaries in Denver, Boulder, and elsewhere in Colorado.
Why Colorado Chooses Sativa
With all the opportunities for outdoor adventure, nightlife, and other fun things to do, Colorado is one of the most active states in the country. We might smoke a lot of weed here, but Colorado marijuana lovers shatter the stereotype of the lazy, couch-bound stoner. We like to get high, and we also like to get out and do stuff. In Colorado, smoking weed and having adventures go hand in hand. There are mountains to climb, trails to hike, hills to sled, and marijuana activities and 420 tours abound. Exhilarating and energetic in their effects, sativas and sativa dominant marijuana strains are the perfect compliment to the active Colorado lifestyle.
