CannLabs Test Results: 24.37% THC

The decision between Tagalong’s and Samoa’s might be difficult, but at least you only have to decide once a year. Not so much with the readily-available and hot-trending strain, Girl Scout Cookies. As one of the most sought-after on the market, and so many shops starting to sell it, how do you know which one is superior? One method is a taste test--and we had the pleasure of sampling a homegrown version from Denver’s Fox Street Wellness.
   GSC is hyped as a dessert strain, perhaps something to pair with a Port wine, and our frosty specimen delivered just that. Her floral notes were spicy and musky, with the tart of an alpine fir in Spring. The smoke however, was sweet and creamy as a Thin Mint, even with a hint of Lemonades. Something about it made us think of Headband.

CannLabs Test Results: 71.01% THC

Altitude Organic first made a splash years ago when they came out with the first branded ‘Caviar’ (hash-oil infused nuggets rolled in kief) distributed around town. Now the dispensary has another gem circulating through Denver stores on the wholesale market: Colorado Clear. One of the first well-marketed dab-able solventless concentrates, this one sets a high potency precedent by testing at solvent levels (a very admirable 71.01% THC).
   Our helping of the potent potable was light-complexioned and crumbled in thin crisps. Critics noted a bouquet of aromatic variety: it was was tart and peppery specimen with a lingering pine tree perfume. A berry--even definitively “concord grape”--taste sprung forth with the dab, which smoked clean and clear. Another critic brought out a bowl of opium-blueberry and it worked well as a topper.
   Immediate effects were pulverizing. The space-out was immediate, as…

CannLabs Test Results: 26.52% THC

To conjure the power of the “DeathStar” takes both brilliance, functionality, and a little bit of a dark-side. While we aren’t here to debate the Tarkin Doctrine or Galactic Standard Calendar, the comparison to a weapon of immense power is overdue as this strain delivers both sensational strong indica effects and very high THC. That’s thanks to a Sensi Star heritage, crossed with the dominating cerebral versatility of Sour Diesel.
   Our specimen from Buddies Wellness was sugar-dusted as always with near-perfect cure/dry and pleasant stickiness. A pinch and grind revealed strong Pinesol aroma, like that of an early 1980’s wood paneling. Taste followed suite, with layers of tart lemon, earthy and even metallic overtones, and, not surprisingly, diesel. The longer it burned, a California plum emerged on the palate, sweet like a flower’s nectar.
   Interestingly enough, the…

What do you get when cross Skunk #1 with White Widow? If you said Peacemaker, Shark Shock, or White Shark, you’d be correct. They’re all alternative monikers for Great White Shark--which, to be perfectly anal about it, actually comes from “Black” Widow, the dark doppelganger of the original ‘White.’ GWS peaked more than a decade ago in popularity, but still holds a solid place on the medicine shelf with its simple genetics and the strong signature effects of its infamous parents.
   Our original specimen came from AMCH carrying the aromatic spice of nutmeg and sage. The acrid stenches from its Black Widow roots only amplified as we broke the thick bracts apart, although mixture with Skunk’s sweet and creamy tendencies produced a unique and colorful potpourri. It wasn’t until the smoke struck the tongue that we tasted cinnamon.
   The first hit broke our quiet normalcy abruptly;…

No doubt most veteran connoisseurs will probably pack a bowl when they learn the world is about to end. A good candidate for such an occasion is Armageddon, an indica renowned for its floating relaxation. Quite appropriately, our sample was immersed in dense, fiery orange hairs. The amber crystal cover was accompanied by an earthy, Jolly Rancher apple aroma, heavy and dark. When ground, its chem tones turned slightly to clove and rum spice.

  The smoking result was a brilliant and vibrant spectacle. Critics enjoyed a thunderous cerebral plunge, as if going under and then back up to the surface to breathe. There was a great body right away - especially in the left wrist and upper legs, combined with a cloudy but remote head high. No paranoia ensued, but rather, eye-squeezing, pleasant vibrations.

  Two hits and we were set. But we weren’t drooling or locked…

It’s sort of ironic that the following for Durban Poison is a little like those who enjoy black licorice. Given the rarity, fans of the strain will latch on--sometimes calling several dispensaries--looking for the South African delicacy. Anyone can buy a sativa, after all, but not every sativa is 100% pure, with the exotic essence of star anise, recognizable from 20 feet away.

  Our latest Poison came from the mountains, as a hairless but burly bud. The aroma was undoubtedly DP, a little subdued, with hints of lemon and pine. Although the 1st puff was mild, the second powerfully knocked us asunder. Head down, the spine seemed to contract as we fought to maintain control.

  The first ten minutes were very active. Visibility was not impaired, but certainly dizzying, as the growing pain relief extended rapidly throughout the limbs. The eyes became heavy and a swallowing…

Like the beautifully mystic bastard child of Lady and the Tramp, Sour Kush mixes Sour Diesel’s renegade melange of worldy genetics with the well-manicured MK-Ultra, a breeder’s strain. Our first such encounter with the strain came from AMCH, vibrantly colored as a blue spruce with kief cover like a fresh snow. Its squirrely buds were thick and compact, with kush-like bracts and hints of purple. It was sweet and spicy when ground, like nutmeg with a subtle cherry. The sample was limited and critics only experienced two full hits, at most. But cazart, was it more than enough.

  Blonde as it was, we weren’t prepared for the breathtaking first hit - even a conservative corner of the bud rocked for 15 straight seconds, with a generous release on exhale. Then, the massive fogginess dissipated, leaving major back-end creeper to round up. The taste revealed a sort…

This signature bud gets our “Cream of the Crop” stamp, and not just because it recently won “Patient’s Choice” at the September industry hash bash. The strain comes with a sort of po-dunk history of displaced coastal and tropical phenotypes mistakenly bumping into each other in Nowhere, Kansas. While Golden Goat doesn’t exactly smell like the dumpsters from which its moniker is taken, its pungently sweet tropical essences are only the prelude to its legendary cerebral effects.

We were treated to a meaty bud with splotches of orchid purple, covered in cherry-blond crystals and a mane of pumpkin-orange hairs. The scent was strong and sweet; two critics claimed it as a Sauvignon Blanc, notably the exotic Nobilo from New Guinea, known for its palate of gooseberries and passion fruit (the bud’s grind and taste was reminiscent of a fresh-squeezed Brazilian Maracuja). Need we say more? This…

Would that the fields of sage throughout this state could be cannabis. S.A.G.E., or the Sativa Afghani Genetic Equilibrium, fits right in the middle as hybrids go, combining the pure and standard indica with a sativa thought to be rooted in California’s Big Sur. The latter is evident in its lemongrass essence, with traces of recognizable hops from natural sage. The bud was tight and dense, but not heavy. There was hardly a leaf on the crystalled morsel; as it ground, the room filled with the aroma of Nag Champa and citral.

 The first puff hit hard, but the real effects crept in a few minutes later, and did not stop. Electrified, we tried to . Blunders were a problem. The cerebral high continued to grow for at least an hour, often leading to embarrassing speech impediment and clumsy fingers. Unmistakably, the strain tended towards the paranoid for…

Product: Chai High Iced Tea MIPS: Keen Greens (Solace Meds)

THC: 316.69 mg per 12 oz bottle

Best Price: @ Buddies Wellness, $12

Never in our history of reviewing edibles have we felt compelled to invoke the White Rabbit - but that changed when the new Chai High Iced Tea came to town. Even those who typically avoid iced tea will want to try this one, if not for the delusional and utterly fantastic experience. No other “extreme” version of any Colorado beverage has the both mega-cannabinoids (~317 total mg in this case) and such actual punch. It might not conjure dreams of talking caterpillars or flamingo croquet, but that all depends on how much you drink. The combination, palate-wise, was a sort of hard-to-down, but an easy shooter for low-tolerance critics.

Most of us decided to drink the whole…
