Some of the most popular pot strains you’ll find at The Flower Shop this summer are currently coming into season, while other good weed strains won’t be on shelves again until the cooler months roll back around. With Arizona heat in play, many people will gravitate naturally towards the amazing weed strains coming into rotation. The flavor and terpene profiles of the new strains tend towards florals, fruity, and sweet, so they’re a perfect match for the summer months. New strains of weed are being cultivated every day, and we’re dedicated to finding and growing the most amazing weed strains possible for our medical and recreational customers.
While indoor grow houses have increased the availability of many strains all year round, to understand why some of the most popular pot strains are no longer available, consider the properties of cannabis plants in the wild. For instance, the flowering cycle for indica varietals is shorter than sativas, so the plants are a better fit for climates with shorter growing seasons. Sativa plants have longer flowering cycles, so they are a better fit for warmer and more consistent climates. Hybrids balance these tendencies, so they are good weed strains for all year round.
While we can find fresh produce and delicious fruits in our grocery stores all year, there is nothing quite so delicious as locally grown fruits and vegetables that are in season. This same principle applies to seasonal varieties of cannabis, especially those that are sun-grown. Here’s a quick rundown of the amazing weed strains we’re bringing to our dispensary shelves this summer:
The Gozer OG – A cross between Star Dawg and Black Banana, expect lush floral undertones and beautiful lavender frosted hues – all the characteristics of an amazing weed strain.
Steal Yo Face – An indica strain with genetics including Cosmic Charlie and Casey Jones. The flower may taste fruity, spicy, earthy, sour, or a bit like pine.
Dole Whip – A crossbreed of Tropic Truffles (a citrus strain with distinct notes of pineapple) with Cookies and Cream, Dole Whip has a rich and creamy taste with notes of citrus and pineapple and a tart limonene and myrcene terpene profile that will leave you feeling very satisfied.
Cookies & Cream – Cookies and Cream is a hybrid cross between Starfighter and an undisclosed Girl Scout Cookies phenotype. Cookies and Cream took first place in the hybrid category of the 2014 Denver Cannabis Cup, so it’s always one of our most popular pot strains.
Ice Cream Sundae – A descendant of Ice Cream Cake and Sundae Driver, this THC-rich strain also contains the cannabinoid CBGa. Prominent terpenes are Caryophyllene, Limonene, and Myrcene. Ice Cream Sundae has a very sweet taste and delivers a very stoney, relaxing high.

These favorite strains will be hibernating for the summer months, but they’ll return to TFS shelves once cooler temperatures arrive this fall and winter.
