Munch Bunch
Hungry? Here are our top ten stoner spots. By Ben Landreth
30 Colorado Centers
Our updated guide to the metro area’s dispensaries! But new recreational sales outlets are opening every week in Colorado, so be sure to check out westword.com for updates, as well as marijuana news and reviews.
ew strains of marijuana are popping up like, well, like weed in Colorado. Still, over the years, we’ve found our favorites. Here’s our guide to two dozen of the most popular new- and old-school strains you’ll find around the state. Light up — and lighten up.
1. Sour Diesel
Generally considered a sativa-dominant hybrid, this strain originates from the Chemdawgfamily of cannabis strains — with lineage likely from the Chemdawg ’91 crossed back with several Northern Lights hybrids. The lemony, skunky sour strain will kick you in the nose with a ripe, spicy fuel scent that comes through with a delicious, mouthwateringrubberytartness from agreenbowl. Grown right, it will put your head into a hammock for a couple of hours with a heavy, brain-slowingpunchthat mellows into a euphoric haze. The popular strain is also a good barometer for judging the quality of a shop: If it isn’t putting out good Sour D, it’s probably not getting anything else right
This bud’s for you, Colorado!
By William Breathes and Hazel Hash
2. Fort Collins Cough
Called Colorado Cough outside of the state, this clone-only masterpiece was a regular (and welcome) export from Fort Collins in the pre-dispensary days and has since grown into a dispensary staple. The Northern Lights #5 x Haze #17 cross has an amazingly pungent, almost rotten smell when broken up, like decomposing fall leaves mixed with a peppery spice. Unlike other hazes that can be spindly and wiry, the Cough usually flowers into large, plump, dark-green buds. It produces a heavy, heavy buzz that will put you down on the couch quickly if you aren’t careful. In smaller amounts, the buds are good for increas-ingyour appetite without makingyou jittery — like a strong, sativa-leaninghaze.
3. Strawberry Cough
There are two versions of this: the one from Dutch Passion seeds and the clone-only version passed around from grower to grower. Both continued on page 10
