The Best Strains of the Past Year
There’s no way around it– 2020 has been a bizarre year. The good news, though, is that the best cannabis growers in Colorado have still developed some premium strains. The explosive industry in this state is always giving us new strains, new edibles, and new types of concentrates, among other things. With growers cultivating new plants around the clock, it’s hard to keep up with all of the craft cannabis strains and even some of the best strains of all time.
Best Cannabis Strains of 2020
Depending on which Denver dispensary you visit, you might see any of hundreds of different cannabis strains. Choosing one that appeals to you is a personal experience, and your favorite strain won’t necessarily be the same as ours, or as your friends, or as anyone else’s. Still, though, we’ve compiled a list of the six best cannabis strains for this year, and many of our customers agree that this is the best top-shelf cannabis in Denver right now.
Check this list of the six best cannabis strains to see if you can find a new favorite.
1 – EastSide OG
Some people think this is a reference to our dispensary since we’ve been serving the East side of Denver for a while now. In a way, they’re right, because you won’t find this specific strain anywhere else. It’s a little bit like many of your favorite OG strains, but not exactly like any other OG strain.
This is because EastSide OG is the combination of six different OG cuts. We can’t tell you exactly which unnamed cuts went into this incredible phenotype, but this flower will have you believing in the mad scientists who created it. Many of our customers praise it for delivering a clear, level high, even though THC levels are through the roof.
This boutique cannabis strain represents the East side with some serious authority, so treat it with respect. The balanced hybrid effects will hit you fast, but this strain won’t completely knock you out if you play it cool. You may experience a whirlwind of emotions, including relaxation, euphoria, and creativity.
2 – Maximus OG
Green thumbs combined Animal Cookies and Gelato to create Maximus OG. This strain takes some of the most desirable genetics from its award-winning parents, and it’s a heavy hitter that will impress even the most experienced cannabis connoisseurs. It’s loaded with THC, so proceed with caution unless you want to be stuck on the couch.
Maximus OG offers plenty of aesthetic appeal to go with its effects. The buds are absolutely frosted with trichomes, and you may see light purple shades in the right light. Once you start to break the buds apart, you’ll be overwhelmed by their sweet and sour aroma. Not long after the earthy undertones clear your mouth, you’ll start to feel a sense of relaxed happiness.
Even though THC levels in Maximus OG are sky-high, most of our customers say they don’t feel “too high” after smoking it. This could be because it’s rich in the terpene caryophyllene, which is also found in black pepper. Some people say caryophyllene is what makes black pepper soothing to someone who just smoked too much.
3 – Pyramid OG
Pyramid OG is one of the best cannabis strains for people who just can’t get enough of their favorite hybrids. People report that this balanced strain makes them feel cheerful and exhilarated but still ready to kick back. In other words, it’s pretty much exactly what people are looking for in an “any time” hybrid strain.
Pyramid OG is a cross between Triangle Kush and Diamond OG, which is how it gets its name as well as its premium genetics. Some people say this new strain reminds them of Sour Diesel, which makes sense because it smells like an ATV filling station in a pine forest. You may also feel like you’ve been cruising through the forest all day: relaxed but still stoked.
4 – Glue Cookies
Glue and GS (Girl Scout) Cookies have become some of the most sought after strains in the last few years, so why not see what the combination of both is like? These genetics have won awards and birthed some of the most popular strains in the cannabis community, and it’s not hard to see why. Glue Cookies is a sativa-dominant hybrid that impresses in multiple ways.
As soon as you set your eyes on these buds, you’ll know you’re in for a treat. Twisting green calyxes grow surrounded by purple leaves, and bright orange hairs complete the stunning visual. Everything is dusted with a dense layer of trichome crystals, which makes sense when you consider the absurd THC levels in Glue Cookies.
There’s a lot going on here, so the flavor and aroma are both complex. One minute all you can smell is dank musk, and the next you’re getting sweet pine. It’s hard to tell if this strain smells more like fresh herbs or a skunk farm. However you feel about the scent, the uplifting head high and alert energy feelings will make you appreciate Glue Cookies.
5 – Silver Valley OG
Silver Valley uses legendary genetics from SFV OG Kush and Silver Haze. It’s another one of our best hybrids of all time, marked by its perfect balance between indica and sativa. The fluffy green nuggets from this plant look like they’ve been dipped in shiny trichome crystals before receiving a smattering of long orange hairs.
At first, your nose will fill with the smell of straight diesel. After you can get past the gas, you’ll start to pick up some other scents. More subtle floral aromas eventually lead you to an undertone like sweet berries. Fresh, fruity, and spicy, the flavor of Silver Valley OG is an absolute delight.
As is the case with other premium cannabis strains, it’s best to pace yourself with this one. High THC levels mean a little goes a long way. This strain is known for its balanced effects but overdoing it will make it hard for you to carry on with your day.
6 – Bee Cookies
This strain combines OG Kush and Durbin Poison. That combination might already be familiar to fans of the famous Girl Scout Cookies, so what’s all the buzz about Bee Cookies? Bee Cookies is GSC that was grown on a bee farm, giving it an even sweeter edge.
Girl Scout Cookies is one of the best cannabis strains of all time, but it’s already everywhere now. Bee Cookies is a winner for anyone who wants a fresh and exciting twist on a classic favorite. This sweet treat will leave you wanting other snacks, too, so get comfortable with some good eats.
