5 Trending Weed Strains At The Beginning Of 2021

Do you need something new in your stash box? Try some of the strains that have taken 2021 by storm. In the list below, you’ll find not just fun, relaxing highs, but a wide swathe of tastes and aromas. Here are five weeds that could make a bad year a little better!

Wedding Cake 

This summer, Wedding Cake will remain one of the most popular strains in the world. This phenotype is a cross between the hybrid Animal Mints and the Indica-dominant Triangle Kush provides a sweet, vanilla-like flavour that’s pretty close to a genuine wedding cake. A few hits of this and, before you know it, you’ve got the giggles. The feelings of euphoria in a pretty tough year make Wedding Cake the perfect strain to take the world by storm, so be sure to check your local dispensary to see if you can get your hands on it!


Kush Mints

Kush Mints isn’t new for 2021, but there’s been a surge in interest for this refreshing strain. It combines Bubba Kush with Animal Mints, and as the name suggests, it has a very minty, citrusy flavour. It gives way to an incredibly relaxing high, but fair warning – it’s high in THC! However much you consume, the aroma and flavour profile is unique in a market that pushes taste and smell to strange new places.


Apple Fritter

Apple-flavoured weed? If you hadn’t heard of Apple Fritter yet, your interest is probably piqued now! Apple Fritter has led to a surge in interest among growers and consumers alike into more specific fruity flavours. A cross between Sour Apple and Animal Cookies, this strain has a sweet earthy flavour; when paired with the relaxing effects, Apple Fritter is perfect for when you want to chill and feel happy.



One of the most celebrated strains in 2020, Runtz is still in high demand in 2021! Runtz has a smooth, creamy smoke that is welcoming to new and season users alike. The uplifting effects also skew towards energizing, and you’ll find only a few hits will give you a long-lasting high!

Runtz is the result of breeding Zkittlez with Gelato, and it’s beloved for the fruity flavour profile and candy-like smell (hence the name!). Speaking of Gelato…


The Many Other Strains Crossed With Gelato

Gelato #41, also known in some parts as Larry Bird, is a hybrid of Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. On top of Runtz, Gelato is the basis for many of the strains trending in 2021, including:

  • Gelonade – a cross between Gelato and Lemon Tree – is fruity, sweet and very, very potent. 
  • Sherblato – a cross between Gelato and Sherbert – has the taste and aroma of berries while providing a relaxed, happy hight
  • Gushers – a cross between Gelato and Triangle Kush – is a THC-packed stain with an incredible smell of terpenes: citrusy limonene, floral linalool, and earthy beta-caryophyllene.

All things considered, 2021 is going to be a good year for the cannabis industry. Look for the strains listed here at a dispensary in your community today and stock up for the summer!
