This stunning strain produces dark purple flowers coated in trichomes and dotted with dark orange pistils. She inherited her stunning good looks from legendary parent strains Wedding Cake, Gelato, and Gelato 33. Speedy and indica-dominant, Wedding Gelato produces 450–550g/m² after a brief flowering time of 8–9 weeks. Her powerful lineup of parents also passed down enormous THC levels of 25% and one of the sweetest terpene profiles on the planet. Brace yourself for a body-slamming high that diffuses tension and elevates the mind into euphoria for several hours at a time.
Many cannabis users select strains based on potency alone. But the allure of Sweet ZZ goes beyond psychoactive effect. Her tall, flavoursome colas leave smokers coming back again and again. She inherited her sweet and fruity punch from parent strains Grape Ape and Grapefruit. Every joint toke and bong hit sends a surge of citrus over the taste buds. Sweet ZZ is an indica-dominant cultivar that achieves THC levels of 22%. Her soothing body high is fast-acting and lingers for hours.
3. Green Crack Punch
Sweet ZZ is a highly productive strain with a relatively fast flowering time of 7–9 weeks. Grown indoors, she’ll pump out up to 600g/m² while advancing to a height of 140cm. Outdoor plants grown in containers or garden beds will reward with up to 550g/plant and peak at a height of 200cm. Expect to harvest outdoor plants during late September.
Green Crack Punch stems from a breeding project involving Green Crack and Purple Punch. These two varieties exist at opposite ends of the indica-sativa spectrum, and thus are the perfect match for one another. Their offspring features a close balance of 60% sativa genetics and 40% indica, and produces up to 500g/m² after a flowering time of 8–9 weeks. Her colas grow tall and wide, boasting shades of purple, green, orange, and tinges of yellow. A THC content of 18% makes for a mellow and balanced high that soothes the body whilst keeping the mind alert and active.
These specimens follow the cues of the seasons outdoors, flowering toward the end of summer. Indoors, cultivators have complete control over the length of the vegetative phase. Let them veg as long as you please, and flip them to flowering by reducing light to 12 hours per day.
The marijuana industry is made up of companies that either support or are engaged in the research, development, distribution, and sale of medical and recreational marijuana. Cannabis has begun to gain wider acceptance and has been legalized in a growing number of nations, states, and other jurisdictions for recreational, medicinal, and other uses. Some of the biggest companies in the marijuana industry include Canopy Growth Corp. (CGC), Cronos Group Inc. (CRON), and Tilray Inc. (TLRY). Many big marijuana companies have continued to post sizable net losses as they focus on investing in equipment to speed up revenue growth, which remained strong despite the economic disruption caused by the pandemic.
Marijuana stocks, as represented by the ETFMG Alternative Harvest ETF (MJ), have outperformed the broader market.

These market performance numbers and all statistics in the tables below are as of June 25, 2021.

On March 31, 2021, New York passed a law legalizing recreational cannabis, expanding medical use, and decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana, among other measures. Not all of these provisions will go into effect immediately and there is no timeline yet on when all these measures will be fully implemented.
These are the top marijuana stocks as ranked by a growth model that scores companies based on a 50/50 weighting of their most recent quarterly year-over-year (YOY) percentage revenue growth and their most recent quarterly YOY earnings-per-share (EPS) growth. Both sales and earnings are critical factors in the success of a company. Therefore ranking companies by only one growth metric makes a ranking susceptible to the accounting anomalies of that quarter (such as changes in tax law or restructuring costs) that may make one or the other figure unrepresentative of the business in general. Companies with quarterly EPS or revenue growth of over 2,500% were excluded as outliers.
Here are the top 5 marijuana stocks with the best value, the fastest growth, and the most momentum.
