Varieties like variety of the year 2023

Have you heard the good news? Leafly's 2023 Strain of the Year is Permanent Marker – a passion project from Seed Junky that combines the best characteristics of its parent strains (Biscotti x Sherb Bx) x Jealousy in one plant experience. Permanent Market comes from a family tree of Cup winners and Leafly favorites, so it's no wonder growers keep it on the shelves in their gardens and dispensaries from coast to coast.

We never worry about the gate. If you can't find permanent marker at your local location in the coming weeks (we apologize in advance!), we've put together a convenient list of accessible and delicious alternatives.

As the Future song says, Purple Octane and Permanent Marker are real sisters. Seed Junky made a slight change by crossing (Biscotti x Sherb BX1) with another Jealousy phenom, Jealousy F2, giving her a pretty purple color with a stronger grape and gas profile. Purple Octane is like finding out your favorite celebrity has a non-famous twin—you can enjoy the same euphoric effects and tantalizing terps without having to worry about long lines at the dispensary or fake cuts.
