Top 25 Marijuana Strains Across North America in January


For January, online search results for Jack Herer, Tangie, Blueberry, Banana OG, Strawberry Cough, Grape Ape, and Do-Si-Dos eclipsed hundreds of other hybrids, making them some of North America’s most searched strains during the first month of 2018.

About Author

Born in Long Beach, raised on the central coast: I surf, dab, burn, and blog – though not necessarily in that order. I'm a husband, a father and a lifelong consumer of connoisseur grade weed. I don't drink alcohol or consume any other "drugs." I consider myself to be living proof that weed is not a gateway drug. If it were, I'd be in some serious trouble. Instead, as a 50-year-old ex-realtor that has been smoking weed for nearly 80% of my life (just did the math) ... I can only say, marijuana is safer than prescription pills or alcohol could ever hope to be for calming what stirs the savage beast.


  1. What about the old school sour cherry? I see the cross bred strains but not the real deal! It is the best high for n the planet hands down! I don’t know of anyone that has it except for one person and it’s been going for twenty plus years now! THC level is very high and the cbd,s are up there also! I have tried the crossed stuff but no where near the real thing!!! Please let me know if you have even heard of this strain, please! Thank you much as I just want to know! Thanks.
