Welcome to Leafly Buzz for February. We got your monthly bouquet of West Coast fire flower. But we’re changing up the format here in year 3 of the Buzz. You gotta keep it fresh. You gotta keep it moving.

Let’s go.

Data Grinder

Strains are like celebrities. One minute you’re in, the next you are out. Here are four flowers on the move in February:

  • Grand Daddy Purple—⬆️ 5.1%. The grape-tasting classic taps nostalgia fans.
  • Super Runtz—⬆️ 14.5%. A Runtz variety stays winning into 2024.
  • Zoap—⬆️ 6.4%. Readers chose to add Zoap to our Top 12 hot strains to smoke in 2024.
  • GastroPop—⬆️ 29.8%. Compound Genetics’ royalty strain finds new fans.

New in the Leafly Strain database

The top 50 growers could release 20 strains this year and we would have 1,000 new varietals to try, easy. I guess that means no days off. Fresh in the database: a Jack Herer for 2024; and new-new from Umami Seed Company and Seed Junky Genetics.
