Wifi Alien from Chronic Therapy

May 11, 2016

Meet Wifi Alien, also known as Wildfire Alien or as our critics like to call it: “Oliver Twist.” This fierce indica hybrid from Colorado’s own Chronic Therapy will blast you off into space and leave you begging “Please sir, I’d like some more.”

Our sample selection donned a fine crystalline coat of giant trichomes sparkling like diamonds, amidst a sea of cinnamon-red pistils, all with a refreshing scent of sugar-coated lemon zest. We could just as easily have packed without a grind, but it is highly recommended for the kief fallout alone. Packing a bowl felt like digging through sand…

Bubba Tang from The Spot

May 11, 2016

The Spot sent over a true beauty, Bubba Tango, part of a never-ending arsenal of heavy-hitters. The potent aroma of this Bubba Kush and Tango hybrid overpowered the sinuses immediately, and the sandy mess of trichomes did little to hide splotches of purple and orange pistils. Her delicious aroma was that of Juicy Fruit, topped with brisk pine. With the first spark, mango surfaced, infused with subtle organic undertones.

Our selection of crept, and crept, and did not stop creeping, until total cerebral impairment was upon us -- completely changing our plans for the afternoon. With slight surprise, we were…

Granddaddy Purp from Elevations

May 11, 2016

A cross between Purple Urkle and Big Bud, Grandaddy Purple is a well-known indica your grandfather would approve of. Elevations' selection was even dressed in a viscous earthy essence reminiscent of Sunday brunch with the grandparents. Its dense, frosted foliage intricately covered the flower with clusters of purple, amidst traces of neon green and orange hairs. A sharp, grapefruit aroma further allured the senses and beckoned a grind.  

Slow waves flowed over the body. A gentle invisible hat manifested after about five minutes, providing a steady tingling behind the eyes. The calm and relaxation offered just enough motivation to…

Tangerine Chem from Colorado BestBudz

May 11, 2016

Colorado Best Budz's Tangerine Chem delivers a moderately strong high with mild mental stimulation. As to be expected with any strain crossed with Chemdog, she produces heavy euphoric effects felt throughout the entire body, and its first name promotes its tangy scent. Zoning-out after a day of activity has never felt so good.

  Cracking the bud was like peeling a Clementine, matched with aromas of pungent sugar and botanical blossoms. The buds were shamrock green with bright orange clusters and trichome-speckled hairs. The smoke was luscious and smooth, with a hint of cloves, and a spicy gumdrop aftertaste.

  The first…

Quality Choice Sour Diesel Rosin

May 11, 2016

For a solvent-less extract that tops any shatter or wax, you’ll need to turn to the expert cannasseurs at Quality Choice. Simply put, they've created a super potent (and byproduct-free) rosin that deserves every bit of praise we can muster. If we were told to choose one extract, concentrate or flower to smoke for the rest of our lives - this would be a main contender.

  As we unwrapped our ravishing sample, derived from Sour Diesel, the overwhelming scent of sweet pine and tangerines immediately launched an olfactory assault. The pungent smell alone prompted drooling. Her waxy appearance reminded us…

Tangerine Kush from Quality Choice

May 11, 2016

While most indicas relax the body more than the mind, Tangerine Kush provides a stimulating cerebral blast in addition to its full-bodied effects. The strain also earns its fruity moniker from a strong citrus essence and neon orange pistils. Our sample from Quality Choice fit the profile precisely, with a tangy fragrance that filled the room, and a tantalizing aroma that was impossible to deny.

   Our nugget shimmered in crystals coating every square millimeter of neon green right down to its stems. Clusters of bright sunfire hairs protruded from the fluffy buds; they were soft enough to break apart…

Ecto-Cooler from Three Rivers Organic

May 11, 2016

With a name that vividly conjures images of Slimer and the Ghostbusters, one hit of Ecto Cooler will send you straight into the spirit world. Widely revered for producing some of the tastiest and most unique strains, Three River Organics have simply outdone themselves with this incredibly powerful indica.

She was a dense nug, like an impenetrable pine thicket, emerald in color and splashed with the glitter of trichomes. A coarse layer of burnt sienna pistils weaved throughout. Subtle aromas of pine, earth and even citrus casually made introductions even before she was put to the grind. Once broken apart…

Cookies Kush from Canna Meds

May 11, 2016

If you’re looking for a potent indica hybrid worthy of a Cannabis Cup, feast your sweet tooth on Cookies Kush from Canna Meds. This powerful offspring of Girl Scout Cookies and OG Kush produces a relaxing and pain-alleviating high that is second to none. And, like all other award-winning strains from Canna Meds, you can actually taste the full bloom, quality flush and cure.

Dense and resistant to a good squeeze, the buds were tight and fluffy little green rocks. Fantastic amber pistil stubble curled around the compact nugs as a protective coat of arms to the cream-colored crystal-cover. A…

Sour Diesel from Canna Meds Wellness

February 6, 2016

Sour Diesel has worked hard to become one of the most popular and potent staples on the shelf. A Mexican Sativa and Chemo cross, true Sour D should be distinguishable by smell from the next room. Our noses were flooded with that same enticing essence from the moment we popped open our sample from CMW.

Covered with dense pockets of glimmering crystals, the fluffy flower broke apart smoothly and even packed firmly without a grind. Notes of citrus, if not, oakwood, accompanied the thick smoke, with sweet and spicy aftertaste.

Upon first spark came disempowerment that left us a bit…

Girl Scout Cookies from Chronic Therapy

February 6, 2016

Everyone knows you can’t just eat one Girl Scout Cookie without the urge to finish off a whole box. Take a thick nugget with an illustrious range of violet hues, diamond crystal cover and phenomenal star anise aroma that fills the entire house--and you’ll find yourself in a similar predicament, loading bowl after bowl. Such it was with Chronic Therapy’s version of the strain, which was masterfully cured, and carried the fragrance of blood orange.

  Wow. We only needed one hit. That was clear from the first spark. It totally ripped right off the bat, tickling the throat. An electrical…
