Cannarado Genetics has been producing potent and popular genetics out of Colorado since 1998. They’ve been able to maintain a healthy reputation among some of the most infamous cultivators currently on the market. The most notable fan of their genetics is LA’s Jungle Boys. They’ve gone on to support each other in bringing strong genetics to California’s market.
What makes Cannarado such an OG in the game is their overall low-key mode of operation. They don’t brag, and they don’t go out of their way to supply any of the big names with genetics. Cannarado has simply been doing their thing since the onset of the first forms of legal cannabis. They do a commendable job at creating genetics that produce big yields and flavorful and stinky buds. Below are some of their most popular strains that have gone on to captivate the West Coast and global cannabis culture.
The Sundae Driver strain is possibly the most popular strain currently available by Cannarado Genetics. A beautiful combination of the Fruity Pebbles OG and Grape Pie, this rich, earthy, candy-like hitter may bring pure delight. The buds are a true green with purple sparsely interweaving.
Cannarado really did a number with their Grape Pie strain. It’s gone on to be the parent to several of their other most popular cultivars. By crossing Cherry Pie with Grape Stomper, you end up with a luscious offering that reeks of sour berries and red grapes. Luxurious highs may immediately follow a few puffs of this strain.
Where to begin with Top-Shelf Cultivation’s Whoa-Si-Whoa strain…it’s potent, to say the least. Top-Shelf came across this cultivar from visiting a few High Times Cannabis Cups and picking up the seeds randomly. The result has become their hallmark strain, known for its high levels of limonene and pinene. If you’re looking for a rollercoaster of terps and potentially uplifting, yet melting effects, look no further than the Whoa-Si-Whoa.
Cannarado bred the Orange Daiquiri strain and then Jungle Boys yet again took it to fame. It comes from crossing Orange Cookies with Grape Pie to produce a wildly sweet citrus aroma with hints of pine and diesel. The buds showcase a pretty green color with purple highlights, and long orange pistils that wriggle out. Glimmering in a coating of resin, this strain might be your one-way ticket to deep, deep body relaxation.
Another potent offering from the lineage of Grape Pie, the Wedding Pie strain is one of the more succulent offshoots of Wedding Cake from Seed Junky Genetics. By crossing these two standout strains, you end up with the delectable Wedding Pie. Dessert-like fragrances co-mingle with doughy diesel to produce a high that might be stress-relieving and comforting.
In the spirit of dessert strains, Cannarado did it again with their Lava Cake strain that brings together Cookies genetics. Thin Mint GSC and Grape Pie made this decadent and rich, chocolatey sour cultivar that has hints of piney mintiness. A few puffs of the Lava Cake might have you feeling like royalty as you melt into the nearest chair or couch.
Jungle Boys have taken the Strawberry Shortcake strain to a whole new level in California. A dangerous combination of the White Wookies and The White, this strain is one you could classify as exotic. Breaking it apart reveals a blast of syrupy-sweet terps that are overrun with musky gas. This might be your new favorite strain for winding down after a stressful day.
If you’re familiar with California cannabis at all, you’ve heard of the Garanimals strain. Another popular offshoot of Animal Cookies, Cannarado crossed it with their Grape Pie to great avail. Garanimals has a classically euphoric high that might bring you into ample relaxation. The rich terpene profile sort of reminds me of cinnamon jelly donuts. The buds on this strain look insane, showing off a wet-like coating of trichomes that make my mouth water.
Grape Pie has shown to be an incredibly reliable genetic parent for some of Cannarado Genetics’ biggest successes. The Pie Hoe strain is no different, crossing Grape Pie with Tahoe OG. Jungle Boys took it to the OG-lovers of Southern California to bring it near-celebrity status. Dank OG flavors dance around with spicy grape aromas that can entice any cannasseur into a toke or two. The high is definitely not for beginners, as it might take you into a twilight zone of enlivening bliss before casually departing.
The Dosi White strain comes from some of Cannarado’s earlier efforts. By combining Do-Si-Dos with The White, you get a trichome-rich offering that reeks of citrus diesel mixed with sweet earth. Those looking for strains that might boost creativity while still chilling you out will find this strain to be a powerful tool.
