Idaho and Colorado topped the list as loving sativa the most. Maybe that’s due to their outdoor lifestyle? On the other hand though, Hawaii came in tied for second last, when there’s obviously a tonne of stuff to do outside there.

Special Mentions

Oklahoma stood out to us in a BIG WAY while putting this list together. When comparing the two search terms of sativa vs indica, it also shows you who searches for the individual search terms the most. Oklahoma is the state that searches for both sativa and indica the most. Their score for each word is 100, meaning all other states are bench-marked off it. And they don’t even have recreational weed.

Following Oklahoma was Colorado and Nevada. This makes a lot more sense as they both have recreational weed. Is there something going on in Oklahoma that I don’t know about?
