Published on March 2, 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.

The days are getting longer and the sun is coming out, which means it’s high time for a sativa-dominant New Strains Alert! This week, we added some delicious up-and-coming crosses, including two GSC Thin Mint mash-ups, two new OG crosses, Princess (parent of the wonderful Cinderella 99), and many more!

Meanwhile Tangie Cookies inherits the stout structure and trichome production of GSC Thin Mint combined with the astoundingly fruity flavor of Tangie. Gorilla Girl is a combination of two modern cannabis celebrities, GSC Thin Mint x GG. Both of its parent strains have dense, resin-packed buds, and those attributes are amplified through this marriage of cannabis cultivars.

Be sure to also take a moment to pop by your favorite dispensary menu and check out the recently released menu overhaul! And as always, if you’ve had the pleasure of  trying any of these unique genetics, leave a review and help inform the community.

Tangie Cookies weed strain tile
Tangie Cookies

Tangie Cookies by Elev8 Seeds was a no-brainer cross of excellent genetics. Created by crossing GSC Thin Mint and Tangie, this dense, resin-clad bud expresses a loud orange peel aroma. The plant is rather vigorous, offering a generous yield over its 10-week flowering cycle. Tangie Cookies is an extremely potent strain that has been known to produce a terpene profile that can reach 3-5%. Enjoy the stimulating and uplifting effects of Tangie Cookies outdoors or among friends to get the most out of this fine, flavorful flower.

Leafly staff picks: The best-tasting cannabis strains

Gorilla Girl weed strain tile
Gorilla Girl

Gorilla Girl is a potent hybrid cross of two extremely popular cuts. Created by Sweet Seeds, this strain combines an unnamed phenotype of GG and GSC Thin Mint. Sweet Seeds describes the aroma as an intense mixture of cypress wood, earth, and citrus, and the effects as positive and cerebral with happy, creative euphoria. Both of Gorilla Girl’s parents are known for their potency, so mind your dosage! This strain is a thumper and can dispatch stress, nausea, and pain with just a few hits.

California Love OG weed strain tile
California Love OG

California Love OG is a hybrid cross bred by Spectrum Genetics and grown by The 420 Machine. This cut was created by crossing Coastal Haze and Pie Face OG. Combining two of the most sought after flavors in cannabis, California Love OG melds the spiced, tropical aroma of Haze with the pungent earth and citrus of OG to create something entirely new. California Love OG immediately hits the head, but settles down into a relaxing, happy, and focused high perfect for an end of the day session with the squad or some quality solo RnR.

Princess weed strain tile

Princess is a mysterious cannabis strain that supposedly came from seeds in a Jack Herer bag from an Amsterdam coffee shop. The grower described the flower’s aroma as tropical and floral, a fragrance traditional Jack Herer does not possess. These seeds sprouted two other phenotypes and a few males, but Princess was kept for its potent aroma and effects. Princess’s powerful high has been described as “psychedelic” and can cause paranoia at high doses. This strong, heady strain is the ancestor of Cinderella 99.

Grape Jelly weed strain tile
Grape Jelly

Grape Jelly is a hybrid cross that grows colorful, multifaceted buds with exciting flavors. Created by Mary Jones and Uncle Spaceman, this strain is a cross of OG Glue and Sweet Purple D (Island Sweet Skunk x NYC Diesel x Purple Mist). It develops teardrop-shaped buds with green and purple foliage that is slowly overtaken with resin as the buds mature. Grape Jelly can obliterate anxiety while keeping the consumer’s mind clear. The lingering buzz rests in the body, but keeps the mind focused and centered. This strain is a great option for reducing stress and anxiety while maintaining productive energy.

Durban Princess weed strain tile
Durban Princess

Durban Princess by Kleen Karma Gardens is a mixture of powerful and stimulating genetics. This strain is an invigorating mashup of the South African landrace, Durban Poison, and the influential Jack Herer cross, Princess. Durban Princess is said to have uplifting and creative effects, boosting energy and mood. This plant grows fat, chunky buds that produce copious amount of resin, making it ideal for extraction. Utilize Durban Princess to overcome lethargy while stimulating creativity, but remember to mind your dosage, as this highly potent bud can be overstimulating for some

Sweet Amnesia Haze weed strain tile
Sweet Amnesia Haze

Sweet Amnesia Haze by Sweet Seeds is a sativa cross of a prized Amnesia Haze cut. This strain emits all the same flavors and effects of Amnesia Haze, but with just a touch more citrus zest, cedar, and incense on the nose as well as a strong, uplifting cerebral buzz. This strain’s happy, heady effects make it ideal for consumers looking to shed stress while staying productive and alert.
