Medical patients and recreational smokers reached the highest heights in 2014, as new genetics and potent strains continued to hit the market. But at the top of the strain food chain, the classics still held down the fort.

With its high demand, high yield, and availability in every medical marijuana state, Blue Dream once again reigned supreme in 2014. The following list, via Weedmaps’ strain data, recognizes the times a strain was added to a dispensary’s menu, not sold.

But marijuana is a supply and demand based business, so given each strain’s frequency, odds are that nationwide strain sale trends mirror these numbers, and that these 25 strains were legally smoked more than any other in 2014:

1. Blue Dream – 2159

2. Sour Diesel – 1758

3. Girl Scout Cookies – 1632

4. Green Crack – 1180

5. Jack Herer – 1135

6. SFV OG – 1007

7. Headband – 968

8. Fire OG – 945

9. White Widow – 886

10. Super Lemon Haze – 841

11. Bubba Kush – 818

12. OG Kush – 813

13. Durban Poison – 740

14. Tahoe OG – 703

15. Master Kush – 695

16. Skywalker OG – 646

17. Cherry Pie – 604

18. Blackberry Kush – 544

19. Trainwreck – 528

20. Purple Trainwreck – 510

21. Pineapple Express – 505

22. Super Silver Haze – 487

23. Grape Ape – 483

24. Purple Kush – 482

25. Purple Haze – 479

All told, most strains that make the list are ones the average stoner knows. The only mild surprise is that OG Kush does not make the top five, and that SFV OG is more frequent than a standard OG. Of course, when you add up all five of the OG phenotypes on this list, OG would outscore Blue Dream.

Power strain Sour Diesel checks in at #2 as a mild surprise, because the true, original Sour Diesel is nearly impossible to find and the phenotypes attached to the strain name typically fall short of the Diesel bar.

Overall, the full list, courtesy of Weedmaps strain data, confirms that traditional industry mainstays have not lost their virility and that Girl Scout Cookies has quickly become a rising force in the strain game.
