Legal marijuana has been around for a few years in many states now, with the industry as a whole totalling sales of more than $1 billion last year alone. More and more states are seeing green and either putting referendums up for vote, or legislation in place. With everyone jumping into the fray, there is one question that needs to be addressed: What’s the most popular strain?
The good people at BDS Analytics, a firm started about a year ago have done the hard work, and compiled the data with consent dispensaries all over and the answer is Blue Dream.
According to Civilized, a cannabis news related site, Blue Dream is an offspring of Blueberry indica and Haze, selling over $3 million in Washington and a staggering $6 million in Colorado.
Johnny Green at The Weed Blog, writes about what he thinks is the reason behind Blue Dream’s dominance of the market, “So if Blue Dream isn’t the best marijuana strain out there, or even close, why does it sell at such a higher volume compared to all other marijuana strains in Colorado and Washington? I don’t think it has to do with popularity. My theory is that it has much more to do with the fact that Blue Dream is EVERYWHERE.”
He goes on to say that while the strain itself isn’t bad, it’s not great either. Blue Dream’s presence is do to the fact that the product is strong, gives a reliable yield, and is fairly cheap. Therefore it’s stocked at more places and in higher quantities than others.
While giving more thoughts and comparing it to the weed of the northwest in the early part of the new millennium he goes on to say, “I wouldn’t kick it to the curb, but when given the chance, I would choose a different strain to consume more often than not.”

Many mainstream coaches, therapists and matchmakers don't understand just how beneficial responsible cannabis consumption can be in life or in a relationship, and we provide a safe space without judgment. If smoking a joint or hitting a vape during a coaching session makes you feel more comfortable opening up, go for it! Our Head Coach Molly is a longtime cannabis enthusiast, and it's one of the reasons she and her husband are so compatible. We respect fellow cannabis consumers, and we understand where they're coming from.
In addition to all of its medicinal uses, we’ve experienced how cannabis gives perspective, increases focus, reduces stress and anxiety, and enhances connections with others. We want to help consumers become confident in their relationship with cannabis, because cannabis is a perfect analogy for being genuine and accepting yourself as you are. That’s the true definition of confidence.
It is 4 am, but I have not slept yet. My stomach is rumbling, but I can not eat without throwing up. Sudden electric sensations in my head, known as brain zaps, are irritating. I also have to deal with mild, but persistent headache: it won’t respond to over-the-counter painkillers. Restlessness. Nausea. Shivers. It has been five days I got off Lexapro, the most popular SSRI antidepressant in the United States.
What does it have to do with legal cannabis, one might ask. Well, Lexapro is widely used to treat anxiety disorders, be it generalized anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, or obsessive-compulsive disorder. In legal states doctors are allowed to recommend patients with anxiety to try CBD (cannabidiol, one of the dozens of cannabinoids, marijuana’s ) tinctures and high-CBD low-THC strains of marijuana.
Reading marijuana-devoted websites can be both educational and frustrating. The frustrating part begins when people who are in charge of attracting more visitors make up silly meaningless listicles, like this one that claims to provide 17 reasons to date a girl who smokes weed. Of course every girl who smokes weed will click on this. And some of them will also forward the link to their boyfriends, so it works.
I need to say that I highly respect the High Times magazine. It is probably the most important media outlet for drug culture of the 20th century. They still do quality journalism, although they have some competition now. But can’t they do better than trying to imitate Buzzfeed?
