Ten dankest marijuana strains of 2012

TRILL GHOST OG.JPG
1) Ghost OG - Trill Alternatives
($40/eighth)
"Yes, the buds are popcorny -- but almost the entire batch had been trimmed down to small rocket ships of terpines and THC. No stems needed. Easily the most potent, stinking strain they had on the shelves in my visit, this Ghost was a mix of new sneakers, jalapeno peppers and Pledge dish soap (I know I've said this before, but isn't it strange what things smell appealing when talking about cannabis?). The rust-colored buds glistened in the sunlight like a million tiny glowing eyes looking back at you from the calyxes. Unlike the Sour Kush, these buds burned perfectly down to a white ash with no snap-crackle-or-pop soundtrack. For an OG hybrid, it was good this week for relieving lingering back pain -- and since the Ghost is always a surprisingly energetic and uplifting strain, it leaves me functional, albeit maybe a bit talkative and rambling. If this is indicative of Trill's top shelf, it's certainly worth seconds."

Um, Pledge is furniture polish, not dish soap.  I'm just saying.  Must be some good weed.

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?

Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither.

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?
