Leading cannabis discovery marketplace and resource, Leafy, today named a hybrid strain originating from the influential Southern California market as its pick for the best strain of the year: Jealousy.

Now in its 5th year, the Leafly Strain of the Year honors a cannabis strain that demonstrated unparalleled breakthrough market impact among the more than 6,000 strains in the Leafly strain database.

Jealousy, a hybrid strain by industry-leading cannabis breeder Seed Junky Genetics, is a cross of the wildly popular Sherbert with 2018 Leafly Strain of the Year, Gelato. Jealousy was brought to market in 2019 by The Minntz, a Cookies and Seed Junky Genetics collaboration brand.

Jealous was soon flying off the shelves in the influential SoCal market and the strain has seen an upward trajectory since, quickly earning a spot as a Top 100 strain on Leafly’s database of more than 6,000 cataloged cannabis strains.

“Jealousy’s waves continue to reverberate. More than a dozen new, notable strains crossed with Jealousy capitalize on its lineage and prestige,” according to David Downs, Leafly’s California Bureau Chief. Down’s says purple-colored weed is on trend right now and Jealousy’s flower is dark purple all the way to black, with dapples of bright green.

“If your local dispensary has Jealousy in stock, it’s safe to say that they’re savvy to the connoisseur cannabis conversation in the US right now,” said Downs.


Dominant in the terpene caryophyllene, commonly found in black pepper, cloves, cinnamon and of course, cannabis, Jealousy has a spicy aroma. Reviewers on Leafly report that Jealousy has an earthy and funky taste and that the strain helps them feel mentally relaxed but physically energetic. Jealousy can test into the high 20s interms of THC percentage, ideal for experienced cannabis consumers.
