New Strains Alert: Marmalade, La Blanca Gold, and More

Published on February 16, 2018 · Last updated July 28, 2020

Leafly’s New Strains Alert is an ongoing series that announces cannabis strains recently added to our database. Leave a rating and review for any you’ve tried, or find out if a strain is available in your area, by clicking through to the strain page.

Welcome back to Leafly’s New Strains Alert. This week, we’ve added new cuts from Vision Seeds, High Noon Cultivation, and Solstice. Included in these selections are two CBD-rich strains we’re particularly excited about.

Marmalade from Solstice combines Blueberry Cheesecake and the CBD-dominant staple, Sour Tsunami. CBD strains are not usually known for their flavorful terpene profiles, which makes fragrant cuts like Marmalade a welcome exception.

Medical 49 combines Vision Seeds’ love of skunky genetics with the AK-47 offshoot, AK-49. Loud and potent, Medical 49 embellishes the aromas of its lineage while showing off complex cannabinoid profiles.

If you’ve had the pleasure of trying any of these cannabis cultivars, leave a review and help inform the community!
