Leafly Buzz: 12 Fireplace Hashish Strains as of February 2021


Judging by the Americans’ choice for cannabis – we are all a little stressed, lack of sleep, and need something to make you forget. Maybe it’s pandemic fatigue or the twilight of the American experiment or just winter.

Either way, the receipts for the weed shop speak for themselves: this month, connoisseurs are smoking smoky, mind-blowing, exotic new flavors like Animal Face, Krypto Chronic, and Medellin. and we have the details for you.

Independently reported by fear and favor, Leafly Buzz highlights the top of the crop west of the Rocky Mountains. Pulling up!

Animal face

When people asked us, “What is a good effort to watch a riot?” We turned to Animal Face. It’s a calming indica hybrid that fills the moment with wild levels of THC and pungent aromas.

The exotic regular designers Seed Junky Genetics created Animal Face from Face-Off OG and Animal Mints. Good call! Face-Off-OG-Powers Do-Si-Dos. Animal Mints helped make wedding cake.

With Animal Face you are in the middle of the circus – so don’t bite! Plus 42% in the Leafly master database.

Declining this month: tiger milk. Sorry, Tiger King fans. This burden fell by 26%.

Here is the full data grinder:

● Animal face ⬆️ + 42%

New in the Leafly master database

Seekers can’t buy a place in the Leafly database – only earn it through quality, notoriety, search and sales interest, and pedigree. These four participants deliver the flavors and effects that connoisseurs crave.

Lemon cane

As chic as actor Michael Caine, Lemon Cane delivers thick waves of lemon syrup and gas as well as an electric, strong stone.

His name ruffles on Slurricane, which Do-Si-Dos crossed to Purple Punch.

For Lemon Cane, Archive Seeds of Portland crossed Do-Si-Dos with Lemon Peel. Boom – Lemon Cane, a stunning high-end sativa hybrid sold through Connected Cannabis Co. in California.

Menthol MAC

Minty, hash cookies await shoppers finding Menthol MAC, a new hybrid of MAC1 – one of the premier strains of the day. MAC marries Alien Cookies in a sativa wonder.

Flora Terra, based in Sonoma County, California, is adding some of the menthols – a smart move since mints are so cool right now.

Just like the soft drink, Squirt delivers a lively citrus explosion and medium-strength effervescent effects that are great for the day and a date night. The crossing of Tangie and Blueberry Muffin by Humboldt Seed Co. began in 2019. Today, huge amounts of Squirt are in stores outdoors. Make sure to grow some of your own this year too.

Flo knows

Two classic strains – DJ Short’s Flo and The White – combine to form this rising strain. It is large, dense, and easy to grow, with an appealing and mild aroma and effects.

Stress highlights in February

leafy hum of new varieties

New on pharmacy shelves – Numps Garlic Pasta from Lyfted, CA.

Biting, hearty and lightly strong – Numps garlic noodles have this slap-yo nostril that was enjoyed by lovers.

This is not a weed for Gwyneth Paltrow. It’s like an ocelot in your pocket got up and marked its territory.

Numps garlic noodles are from the sturdy indoor flower brand Lyfted in Modesto, California. And Lyfted knows how to get the most out of contaminated GMO cookies.

Garlic noodles proudly say “100% GMO” right on the bag; like garlic, mushrooms and onions, umami goodness. GMO dominates thanks to its parents – the biting, elemental Chemdog and the delicious powerhouse cookies.

Miss Cat Piss? Do you need something strong to nail you to the couch? Light a bowl of Numps garlic noodles.

The charts are skyrocketing –Cereal milk of Cannabiotix, CA.

The upscale cannabis flower brand Cannabiotix has a huge selection of strong strains – but their grain milk is filling more and more bowls. It was bred by Limited Trees Genetics and is made from a mix of strawberry lemonade and thicc mint biscuits. The result is a sativa hybrid that tastes like milk on the bottom of a cereal bowl filled with Captain Crunch Berries. (This indica hybrid differs from the cookies branded cereal milk of the same name.)

Cut a fine figure this month with Krypto Chronic – a dazzling, intense blend of fruity pebbles OG x Alien Cookies crossed with Jet Fuel Gelato. This enigmatic strain from exotic California-based Alien Labs takes the citrus explosion from Fruity Pebbles OG and sprays the density and moisture of biscuits, all with a little noisy gas from Jet Fuel Gelato.

Prepare for fancy weeds that are hiding from your roommate and still kind of disappearing before you know it.

Ballin ‘on a budget –Medellin Sunglasses from Lemonnade, CA.

Lemonnade Medellin (David Downs / Leafly) 3Lemonnades Medellin outdoors looks better than some indoors. (David Downs / Leafly)

Lemonnade’s Medellin, with its focused effects, is a popular outdoor flower purchase for the late, sun-grown sales season from 20 to 21 years old. Herbs grown outdoors can run cheaper than indoor weeds, and these savings can be passed on to the buyer.

We’ve collected affordable bags of this spicy citrus-sativa hybrid that looked just as good – and tasted better than – a lot inside. Be on the lookout for great outdoor bargains this February – those supplies are moving fast.

High Note: The 2020 Best of the Harvest Collection Box from Natural Cannabis Co.

Pandemic boredom got you down? Light the candle of curiosity with this cannabis collection box.

Northern California pharmacy chain The Natural Cannabis Co. (Oakland Organics, Organicann, etc.) is putting together a huge box of hand-picked strains from its top 2020 outdoor growers. The result?

One of the coolest legalization products: 28 labeled 1 gram jars with various sun-grown flowers collected in a velvet-lined case. The heavy, lockable wooden box is decorated with award-winning art from the international high art competition.

Highlights include: King’s Stash from Redwood Remedies; LA Kush cake made from hands in the ground; and Booneville Bio from Boonville Farm.

(David Downs / Leafly)

The most diverse selection of Legal Weed cannabis ever packaged in a single box? Probably.

The Natural Cannabis Co. made only 300 of these numbered collectibles. Released in mid-December, there are around 50 units left. ($ 420 out the door, including tax.)
