Ten dankest marijuana strains of 2012

7) Headband OG - Colorado Wellness Inc.
"Like Campbell's Soup for the stoner soul, this Headband OG was mmm-mmm good looking in the shop and the overpowering leather/rubber/tennis ball funk of the stock jar that my budtender stuck under my nose lingered for a minute after he took the buds away. Listed as an indica hybrid, this bud behaved more like a sativa, with a quick elevator ride up the spine and a burst of creativity and euphoria in the noggin. A knockout in flavor as well, the shop's simple ingredients of molasses, kelp, guano and castings let the genetics flourish, and someone did an excellent job trimming and then curing this herb. From what I've seen, very few people within the span of blocks that is Broadsterdam (and that's a lot of shops) are doing herb this good, and even at the $12 per-gram increase, this single top-shelf cut comes out to just over $40 with tax included."

6. Pootie Tang - The Golden Goat
($40/eighth)
"I have no clue as to what relation this strain has to the near-cult classic Louis C.K. and Chris Rock flick for which it is named. But sada tay, my damies, this was one fantastic strain I couldn't say da nayno to. With a fat, round bud structure like an OG, I expected more kushiness from the smell and flavor. Instead, it had an intensely dark berry musk to it when ground down that came out very strong in the first two or three hits. Much more of a sativa lean to this as well, and I was instantly charged up after a bowl, like I had just sucked down a Red Bull. The buzz lasted for a good hour and a half before fading out with little to no crash afterward. Great for appetite as well, almost forcing me to feed the growing cavern in my stomach on a constant basis when smoked in the morning. Wada ta."

5) 707 Headband x Maui (greenhouse grown) - Grassroots Grown
($25/eighth)
"[The shop] had a killer 707 Headband/Maui cross just pulled out of the locker the day I stopped by. The fluffy, round nuggets had a fruity, buttery smell, with hints of the Headband rubberiness broken up. Though the buds looked somewhat dull, they were anything but. Smoking and vaping out of clean pieces brought up some amazing earthy sweetness and a powerful Headband aftertaste. The flavor lasted most all of the bowl, then tapered off into a pleasant and almost sweet aftertaste before burning off as a fine, white ash. The buzz was outstanding and really helped lift not only my appetite but also my mood this week after an unfortunate hospitalization last weekend."

How does "dankness" make the "medicine" more effective?

Would you vote for a constitutional amendment that gives TOTAL CONTROL of weed to the cops? Would you vote for UNLIMITED TAXES on weed? Same stupid stoners that voted for Am. 64 WILL buy products from other stupid stoners that can't spell. Never underestimate the stupidity of Colorado stoners. California saw through the charade that is Colorado-style cannabis control when they voted against Prop. 19 by almost 10-points. What happened to the greedy, lazy Colorado stoners? Can't they read?

I get tired of the OG, Diesel, Chem tastes real easy these days, almost burned out on them. I think more and more people are just making up fairytales using notorious strain names with a history of selling well, no matter where it really came from or what the genetics really are. I do love the dank, but I need more than just small variations of the same thing. The biggest problem I have with commercial weed is the increase in poor genetics entering the gene pool, you used to know what Sour Diesel was, now there's something called Sour D on everyones menu, but it's just a name that you buy and say, (it kind of tastes like Sour Diesel.... I think).

@timothy_carrier Don't call all my strains "none", that's rude. I know they are better but they have names too.

@Jude2004 18 comments is an obsession? One column in one paper is an obsession? Maybe lots of happy people happily driving past the liquor store because they have an option they can't get arrested for in the state of Colorado. When all you had in choice was whatever your dealer had on hand and hoping it would give you the results you were looking for, coming full circle to an actual newspaper column comparing different strains and growers letting you make an informed choice. Obsession or joy?
