I checked out a lot of exciting genetics at the Emerald Cup last month. Here, breeders and growers gathered to show off their very best strains—it was clear which seed packs were selling out and which new cultivars breeders were most proud of.
Last year, I found hits like White Tahoe Cookies and Mimosa. But ultimately, there’s no perfect science to forecast exactly which strains will perform well in the garden. Even if they do grow exceptional flowers, consumers will still have to buy them to ensure the cultural impact necessary to solidify their popularity.
So, as you scan dispensary menus, keep an eye out for these intriguing genetics. All show a lot of promise, but only time will tell if they become mainstays in 2019 and beyond.

Already popping up on dispensary menus, Wedding Crasher is another exciting cultivar from Symbiotic Genetics. By combining the the smooth vanilla flavors of Wedding Cake with the sweet grape notes of Purple Punch, Symbiotic developed a mellow, earthy strain with sharp gassy highlights and a sweet berry finish.
Wedding Crasher flowers are caked with trichomes and their sweet and creamy flavors drive toward a calming, blissful headspace.
Symbiotic Genetics has a reputation for eye-catching flower in a range of complex and captivating flavor profiles. Their Mimosa (Clementine x Purple Punch) has been one of my favorite strains as of late, and their most recent release, Modified Grapes, a GMO Cookies
