July 2024’s Hottest New Cannabis Strains in California (1)

As California continues to lead the forefront of cannabis innovation, enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike wait in eager anticipation for the new waves of strains that promise to tantalize their senses and elevate their experiences. July 2024 is no exception to this thriving trend showcasing an eclectic range that caters to a variety of palates and preferences. Innovative breeders and cultivators continue to push the boundaries of what this versatile plant can offer. From mouth-watering new strains to reinvigorated classics, there’s plenty to talk about and choose at your local cannabis dispensary. Whether you’re a connoisseur or just curious about what’s trending, here’s a look at what’s making waves in cannabis strains this year.

Zkittlez and Its Crosses: Taking Over the Scene

One of the most dominant players in the cannabis market this year is Zkittlez and its various crosses. Known for its sweet, candy-like flavor profile and balanced effects, Zkittlez has become a favorite among both growers and consumers. The popularity of Zkittlez isn’t surprising given its unique combination of a fruity taste and a potent, relaxing high.

The trend of Zkittlez crosses has exploded, leading to an array of new strains that blend its best traits with those of other popular varieties. Growers are experimenting with crosses that enhance the flavor, potency, and effects, creating strains that appeal to a wide audience. If you haven’t tried a Zkittlez cross yet, this is the year to dive in and experience what all the hype is about.

The Candy Strain Craze: Sherb and Biscotti Genetics

Another trend that’s been catching fire in 2024 is the proliferation of strains derived from Sherb and Biscotti genetics. These strains are often marketed with candy-themed names, drawing in consumers with promises of sugary-sweet flavors and potent effects. The Sherb (short for Sherbert) and Biscotti strains are celebrated for their rich, dessert-like flavors and heavy-hitting effects, making them a hit among those seeking both taste and potency.

The candy strain craze showcases the creative flair of breeders who are continually developing new and exciting hybrids. These strains often feature vibrant colors, tantalizing aromas, and a wide range of effects, catering to both recreational and medicinal users.

Runtz: Still Riding High

Runtz remains one of the most hyped strains in 2024, and for good reason. This strain, a cross between Zkittlez and Gelato, has carved out a permanent spot in the hearts of cannabis enthusiasts. Runtz is renowned for its deliciously fruity flavor, high THC content, and balanced effects that can range from euphoric and uplifting to calming and relaxing.

Despite the influx of new strains, Runtz has maintained its popularity, continuing to be a go-to choice for many. Its reputation as a well-rounded and enjoyable strain keeps it in high demand, and it’s likely to stay that way for the foreseeable future.

Jealousy Crosses: The New Frontier

In the past year, there’s been a notable increase in the number of Jealousy crosses hitting the market. Jealousy, known for its impressive genetics and unique terpene profile, has become a sought-after parent strain for many new hybrids. These crosses are celebrated for their complex flavors, potent effects, and beautiful, frosty buds.

Jealousy crosses are particularly appealing to those looking for something new and different, with many of these strains offering unique combinations of flavors and effects that stand out in the crowded cannabis landscape. Whether you’re looking for a strain that leans towards relaxation or one that provides a burst of creative energy, there’s likely a Jealousy cross that fits the bill.


The cannabis strain landscape in 2024 is vibrant and diverse, with new strains and crosses continually emerging to captivate consumers. From the sweet and fruity allure of Zkittlez and its crosses to the enduring popularity of Runtz, there’s something for everyone. The rise of candy-themed strains from Sherb and Biscotti genetics and the innovative Jealousy crosses add to the excitement, offering fresh and intriguing options for cannabis enthusiasts.

As breeders keep experimenting and pushing the envelope, the future of cannabis strains looks incredibly promising. Whether you’re a seasoned user or new to the scene, 2024 is a great year to explore and discover your next favorite strain. Happy hunting!
