Editor's note: William Breathes became the planet's first professional medical marijuana critic when he joined Westword in 2009, and since then, he's emerged as the local expert on all things cannabis.

Today, he lists the ten dankest marijuana strains of 2013.

Check out his choices below, and click on the accompanying links to read his original reviews of the shops that made the cut.

Number 10: Acid -- Medicinal Oasis

The budtender at Medicinal Oasis suggested some Acid the marijuana strain, not the mind-altering psychedelic wonder chemical. The funky, rotting-grapefruit-peel smell was intriguing, and the budtender gave it high marks, so I took a discount-level eighth home for $20. While the dozens of miniature popcorn buds I ended up with didn't have high bag appeal, they were nevertheless tiny rockets of THC that packed a buzz on par with chugging a couple of grande lattes and running laps around the block until you're lightheaded. Appropriately, the Acid had an acrid, hazy flavor to match the funky citrus smell in a vape and a bubbler. It was a jolting way to start the day, because it gave me a huge appetite, and just two or three hits kept me going until well after lunchtime.

Number 9: Bubblegum -- Boulder Wellness

I've had a personal aversion to Bubblegum for years after seeing way too much of it back in college, and I usually pass it over. But I'm glad I didn't skip this batch at Boulder Wellness. It was easily some of the best Bubblegum I've seen, and I instantly forgot about my bias. Instead of the leafy buds of my youth, this was perfectly plump, and dried and cured to perfection. The near dead-on Bubblegum smell and flavor oozed from the buds like the glassy crystals coating the calyxes. A much heavier nap-time indica than I remember, this Bubblegum would be solid for relieving pain, soothing anxiety and putting your ass to sleep.

Continue to keep counting down the ten dankest marijuana strains of 2013.

I fondly remember when Westword talked about more than pot... Maybe you guys should think about a name change.

Complete BULLSHIT!


... and since then, he's emerged as the local expert on all things cannabis.


More utterly absurd BULLSHIT!


Sucking on a bong and writing about the decor, furniture and wall coverings

of the few dozen dispensaries he bothered to visit -- out of the 100s he didn't -- doesn't make him an "expert" on ANYTHING cannabis, much less "all things" cannabis.

@DonkeyHotay Tickets....Tickets, I'd rather tickets go up than arrests wouldn't you?  I know we're bitter because we've been proven wrong with data again and we try to find the one thing to keep our sorry hopes propped up but maybe it's time to go back on our medicine and do something meaningful....something that wouldn't get our ass kicked if we were found in a public place....wouldn't that be better?
