Connecticut’s most popular strains
According to Leafly’s search data, these are the 10 strains people were looking for throughout 2022:
GG4: For four months out of 2022, GG4 held the top spot in Leafly’s 2022 strain ratings. Sticky and powerful, that’s no surprise to any toker who’s tangled with this legendary strain, also known as Gorilla Glue and Original Glue.
Ice Cream Cake:Another essential dessert strain that America is eating up from coast to coast is Ice Cream Cake. 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. Chances are if you like Zaza, you’ve smoked Gelato or one of its kids.
Apple Fritter: A sweet bowl of this pungent hybrid is just like grandma used to make (with an extra kick). Known to lay you out flat like most elite pastries, this is a favorite of medical patients treating pain and insomnia.
Oreoz : Connecticut can’t get enough of this sweet and dark strain that is associated with deep relaxation and creative sparks.
