Ten dankest marijuana strains of 2012

4) Super Lemon Haze -New Age Medical
($30/eighth)
"Chunky Super Lemon Haze that almost burned my nose at first smell with the acrid lemon and musky haze. The buds were fully developed, and cracking one left a dusting of trichomes on my desk and my fingers sticky with resins. The lasting flavor was nearly identical to the smell when burned, and the buds baked down to a white ash in a dry pipe. The SLH was uplifting not only mentally, but for appetite as well. A top-shelf strain for New Age at $30 an eighth, it was extra delicious. Well grown and well priced, for sure."

3) Golden Goat - Tea Pot Lounge (Pink House Mile High)
($35/eighth)
"One of the most solid looking and smelling sativa doms in the shop, the Golden Goat was an easy pick for me this week, thanks to its almost eucalyptus menthol finish and sweet, floral aroma. As I've mentioned several times, the source of this amazing strain is a friend, and it's often hard to find samples that compare to what comes out of his garden. The buds I brought home from Tea Pot did, though, burning to a clean white ash. It was a well cured sample as well, with a flavor that mimics the tangy sweet smell. Burning it left a barely discernible haze that lingered for a split second in the nose after exhaling. Not a strain for those of you with high stress, but if you're looking for an energetic sativa buzz more akin to a cup of espresso than anything else, this is where you should be at. I enjoy it for the munchies it produces as well as the happy, perma-grin buzz. Non-member pricing is $35, making this a solid purchase -- one I was happy to smoke on for a week."

2) 707 Headband Shatter - Green Dream Health Services
$40/gram
"As I mentioned in the review, this shatter oil took first place in the 2012 High Times Medical Cannabis Cup concentrate category. Produced by the folks at Top Shelf Extracts from Green Dream's 707 Headband, the oil had a very strain-distinct Headband smell and was a rich, golden amber color with a slightly tacky consistency, like proper shatter should have. Extremely potent: Just a small tenth of a gram on a skillet nail was more than enough for some serious flight time of the mind. Medically, waxes and concentrates are great for quick use. Being able to take one hit of concentrate and be done with smoking is great when battling sudden nausea and you don't feel like choking through an entire bowlful in a pipe or vape. I've been laying off the wax for the last few weeks, and this was a much-appreciated welcome back: clean, full of flavor and strong. At $40 per-gram, it was the most expensive wax on the shelves. Others sell for $35, and everything also sold by the half gram as well."

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?
