Spain is known around the world for its appreciation and tolerance of cannabis. Cannabis lovers within the country have developed an interesting model called a Social Cannabis Club, a private institution owned by the members where users can go to smoke the herb in peace. Over the last 2 years, we have received 7 million page views from Spain. Upon reviewing these statistics, it’s quite clear to see what the most popular strains are within the country. Below are the top 10 most popular strains in Spain according to our data.
Most Spanish cannabis users seem to favor strains on the more intense end of the spectrum, with Gorilla Glue being a prime example of this. This variety was forged on the West Coast of the US with a single goal in mind: maximum potency. Parent strains Chocolate Diesel, Sour Dubb, and Chem Sis were combined to create an indica-dominant powerhouse that produces a staggering THC quantity of 30%. Just a few tokes is all it takes to induce a ferocious body-buzz and narcotic high that lasts for hours. Expect hints of sweetness, fuel, citrus, and pine when burning these flowers.
Gorilla Glue will grow to a tall height, yet produce a medium yield. Her mighty buds will be ready to harvest after 8–9 weeks of flowering.
AK-47 is a worldwide phenomenon that has gained massive recognition in part due to her numerous 1st place wins at high-profile cannabis competitions such as the HighLife Cup in Amsterdam. Spain in particular has taken a liking to AK-47, a sativa-dominant strain that offers a fun, enjoyable, and social high that is suitable for sunny days out and parties. She’s also a popular choice for making edibles, boasting flavors of spice, pine, Skunk, and citrus. The high is reported to ease anxiety and reduce stress.
AK-47 is easy to grow and produces a very potent aroma during flowering; so be sure to install filters if growing indoors. She grows to a medium height and produces indoor yields of between 350–500g/m².
Critical is adored by the Spanish for her well-balanced high and aesthetic appeal. The crossbreeding of parent strains Afghani and Skunk 1 produced a nearly split blend of indica and sativa genetics, with indica being slightly more dominant in the mix. This profile conjures a high that targets the body and mind together. She’s capable of banishing stress on the mental and physical levels whilst emitting pleasant scents and tastes of sweetness and earth. A THC level of 18% occupies a psychoactive sweet spot between subtlety and overwhelm.
Critical boasts tall flowers with purple and oranges hues. She produces a large yield regardless of growing environment and has a short flowering time of 7–8 weeks.
Girl Scout Cookies belongs to a superstar lineup of cannabis strains that were carefully crafted by master breeders on the West Coast of the United States. After making a considerable impact in her native region, her genetics were spread overseas and found great hospitality in Spain. The strength of the high is rarely achieved by other strains. A THC level of 28% can make her a challenge even for seasoned smokers. The effects start out as energetic and stimulating and eventually taper into a sleepy haze. Her tastes of sweetness and mint are best experienced via vaporizer.
This powerhouse can be grown at home with ease. Grown indoors, she will provide a yield of around 450g/m², whereas plants cultivated in the garden offer a medium harvest.
OG Kush is a fine representation of Californian genetics. Her popularity has led her to be used as genetic stock to create other now-famous varieties. Her legendary genetics are the result of two hard-hitting parent strains. Chemdawg gifted OG Kush with an electric head high, whereas Hindu Kush passed down more sedating indica qualities. The euphoric high is superb for elevating mood and getting into a creative mindset before pursuing personal projects. OG Kush is rich in a diverse array of terpenes that generate tastes of diesel, spice, pine, and citrus.
OG Kush grows to a medium-to-large height and features wide lateral growth. Her flowers are tall, thin, and dense.
Tutankhamon is a descendant of AK-47 and houses Afghani, Thai, Mexican, and Colombian genetics. During the flowering stage, she develops a stunning canopy of large colas that boast shades of purple and dark green. Her flowers provide an energetic high that clears the mind. Hitting a joint or bong loaded with these buds is ideal before meditation or long introverted walks. Her therapeutic effects are paired with tastes of berries and citrus.
Tutankhamon plants are known to be easy to maintain. Low stress training can be used to tame her sometimes erratic and bushy growth pattern. She grows to a short height and offers a medium yield indoors and outdoors.
It’s quite obvious why this unique variety received her name. She’s loaded with flavors of candy and sweetness. Her powerful aromas stain the air and tease growers all the way up to harvest time. This autoflowering variety is popular because of how easy she is to grow. She requires little attention and is forgiving of minor errors. Her flowers produce high quantities of THC and CBD, making the high well-balanced and therapeutic. She is essentially the autoflowering version of the legendary Kush, having descended from Kush and Auto Pounder.
This small and compact strain is capable of producing a large harvest relative to her size and will be fully bloomed a mere 9–10 weeks after germination.
Although her name suggests a narcotic effect, Green Crack is entirely benevolent. Her title merely reflects her incredibly stimulating and energising effect that is favored among creative individuals for motivation and inspiration. Sparking a joint of Green Crack before creating music, writing, or painting will keep the cogs of the mind rotating smoothly for hours. Her dense, nugget-like flowers are jewel-like in appearance with high levels of trichomes that glitter under grow lights.
Green Crack has a moderate growing difficulty. She provides an average yield indoors and outdoors after a flowering time of 9 weeks.
Jack Herer is a deeply revered strain within the cannabis world, as was the decriminalization activist and author after whom the strain was named. Jack Herer firmly believed that hemp would provide the answer to many of the issues humans face, and science is certainly proving him correct. This strain has found world fame, especially within the cannabis epicenter of Holland and the cannabis clubs of Spain. She’s a hybrid variety that stems from Haze, Skunk, and Northern Lights. The high is energetic and euphoric, and is perfect for a productive wake-and-bake.
Jack Herer is capable of producing a large yield within a small space, and will be ready to harvest after a flowering time of up to 10 weeks.
Moby Dick is the combination of cannabis titans Haze and White Widow. This strain is popular among Spanish consumers after swiping 1st place in competitions in the Canary Islands and Valencia. She provides uplifting and almost psychedelic highs that are ideal for outdoor physical activities such as hiking, running, and surfing. The high allows users to tap into flow states and become immersed in the present moment.
Moby Dick reaches her full potential when grown outdoors, where she provides a massive yield of 1500g/plant and peaks at a height of 3.5m.
