Yo, what’s poppin’ fam? It’s ya boy, Dan, here to break down the latest news from Leafly. We out here smokin’ fat doinks and divin’ deep into that dank data to bring you the sickest pick for Leafly Strain of the Year. We got mad strains up in our database, over 6,000 of ’em. Plus, we got 3,000 store menus and more than 10,000 news articles. Bruh, we even got literal file cabinets full of that fire weed. We be travelin’ all over the world, comparin’ strain trends with actual samples and vice versa. We on top of this game, my dudes.

Our mission? To create a virtuous cycle of epic proportions. We find a strain that’s blowin’ up and we take it to the next level. We ain’t just lookin’ for any old strain though, nah. We want somethin’ new and zeitgeisty. We strive to be like Billboard’s Album of the Year, the Grammy Artist of the Year, and Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Year—all rolled into one, but way cooler. That’s right, we pick Leafly Strain of the Year.

So how do we do this? Well, we do some serious research, my friends. We track changes in a strain’s menu availability, search traffic, and orders year after year across the whole damn nation. And we ain’t just lookin’ for numbers, nah. We gotta have somethin’ that’s dominatin’ the conversation and tastes hella good too. Our past winners include Gelato, Runtz, Wedding Cake, and Jealousy. And let me tell you, we still ridin’ hard for Dosidos. That shit is tight! Oh yeah, and just so you know, Leafly Strain of the Year can’t be bought. We ain’t lettin’ no Seed Junky advertise that shit.

Now, let’s talk about the 2022 Leafly Strain of the Year, Jealousy. This strain straight up killed it in 2023 after we crowned it as the top dog. We put a rocket on that shit and it shot up to the top ten in traffic per month, only to settle down and climb at a more steady pace. It was like takin’ off from John Wayne airport in Santa Ana, where they blast you into the sky at a steep climb to get away from all them homes below. Then the captain eases back on the throttle and you drop for a sec, and someone always screams. Shit’s wild.

Before I wrap this up, I wanna give a shoutout to all the breeders, growers, stores, budtenders, and smokers out there. Y’all are the ones makin’ this golden age of cannabis possible.

We can’t wait to blaze up that transcendent new shit comin’ out them grow rooms.
