This is the first part of our series “The best marijuana strains for cannabis shops.” In this episode, we want to showcase you five perfectly selling hybrid cannabis strains.
Choosing the right marijuana strains is an important task that every cannabis shop owner has to deal with. On the one hand, you want to present your customers a wide range of different strains, where attributes such as strength, effects and medical use cases appear in a great variation. On the other hand, you shouldn’t flood visitors of your store with dozens of different options, which inevitably involves the agony of choice and makes accurate guidance virtually impossible. A good rule of thumb is to include at least 10, but not significantly more than 20 different strains in your menu.
The list of superb cannabis flowers is practically infinite and also depends on the location of your cannabis store. The following is a list of 5 very popular hybrid cannabis breeds, that have proven as outstandingly good selling products.
5. Skywalker OG
According to Metro News, Skywalker OG is considered as one of the best selling hybrid strains of 2018 in US dispensaries. The 85% Indica hybrid strain is known for a strong couchlock and pain relieving effects. Over the course of the past few years, Skywalker OG developed into a popular strain to treat sleeping issues. The strain can also be recommended if you have if you are exposed to severe stress or pain.
As stated on the cannabis education platform Marijuana.com, “The heavy sedation and numbing effects of the Indica Skywalker mix well with the mellow, happy relaxation of OG Kush. Best when used on days when responsibility is held to a minimum, Skywalker OG may lead to drowsiness, ideal for those looking to get a solid night’s sleep.”
4. Blueberry Haze
The effects of Blueberry Haze are almost the exact opposite of a usual Skywalker OG high. Blueberry Haze comes with strong uplifting effects, that are also suitable for most non-marijuana consumers. As a user on the cannabis rating platform Leafly puts in reference to Blueberry Haze “This is the perfect medicine for before work. I have an industrial job and it’s been hard for me to find something that will ease my pain without getting sleepy.”
The hybrid strain is also a decent selling product, as it combines the widely known strains Blueberry and Haze. Furthermore, a member of the popular cannabis shop Dampkring recently told Strain Insider that cannabis strains that include a fruit in their name are more likely to be bought by both new and regular customers.
3. Pineapple Express
The Sativa dominant hybrid strain Pineapple Express is the perfect marijuana for a creative afternoon, as it comes with an enduring energetic uplift and great euphoria for its consumer. Pineapple Express can be considered as very appropriate for marijuana beginners, while experienced users are also satisfied with the overly pleasant effects. The strain achieved great popularity through the eponymous movie produced by the cannabis supporters and actors James Franco and Seth Rogen.
The successful film, as well as Pineapple Express’ delicious tropical taste, has made the strain one of the most popular in the world with more than 2000 positive reviews on Leafly. Pineapple Express’ short flowering time of seven to nine weeks and its enormous yield of 3-6 oz/ft² makes the hybrid strain a huge success for every cannabis vendor.
2. OG Kush
First grown on the west coast of the USA, OG Kush rightfully earned the second place in our hybrid cannabis strains ranking. The strain that is often loved for great relaxation and body effects is also a perfect medicine to treat stress, depression and pain. OG Kush is a cannabis strain that has been supported frequently by US stars, such as Snoop Dogg and Whiz Khalifa. Being the most rated cannabis strain on Leafly, OG Kush undoubtedly has a tremendous followership.
A main negative point of OG Kush is the fact that the strain comes with several difficulties to grow, which is why many shops only offer the buds for a premium price. Still, most customers should be willing to pay a higher price, since OG Kush is leading several cannabis strain rankings across the internet.
1. White Widow
White Widow is among the most famous strains and a classic product in many cannabis stores around the globe. The flower is probably one of the easiest and most resistant cannabis plants to grow, as it even resists against colder temperatures and low water periods. White Widow’s powerful effects include strong euphoria and energy burst, stimulating conversations and creativity.
The hybrid strain’s short growth time of only 60 days in an indoor environment also grants vendors the opportunity to offer its buds for lower prices than many other strains. These factors certainly made White Widow one of the best selling hybrid weed strains in Europe and the USA. As Cannabis expert JunkyG.com disclosed in regard to White Widow: “Anyone in the industry, when asked, will list White Widow among their top best seed strains available.” As so, White Widow can definitely be seen as one of the most significant strains for cannabis shops.
