From a CBD-heavy hybrid to the best kind of weed for a party joint, our picks for this year’s best cannabis. As legal pot becomes more pervasive, consumers can focus more on what, exactly, they like.
Namely, companies learned the industry is hella lucrative – it’s a multi- billion dollar industry – and politicians gleaned supporting legalization can earn them some political sway. This year also ushered in a massive wave of luxe cannabis products and accessories. It’s safe to say what might have been considered the plant’s edge is now officially sanded and shellacked smooth. But just because something goes mainstream doesn’t mean it’s no longer cool. Now cannabis has completed a similar metamorphosis. And five strains in particular reigned 2017 supreme. Cannabis, like alcohol, has many nuances to consider. Just as you’d never sidle up to a bar for a pint of “alcohol,” you should know more about cannabis than to request simply “weed.” This year saw a rise in appreciation for CBD, a major cannabinoid present in marijuana. THC, the heady component that makes users feel high, is the other major cannabinoid in cannabis. CBD doesn’t affect the mind; instead, it’s jam-packed with medicinal applications, spanning from treating menstrual cramps to epilepsy. As stigma surrounding cannabis wanes, patients interested in non-pharmaceutical treatments have more and more CBD-heavy options. Keep in mind, even though these strands dominated 2017, cannabis is a highly individualistic experience. The strain that gets your flying phobic cousin calm and airborne might make another user fall victim to a surprise couch nap. As Portland, Oregon,-based Farma collective’s Sam Heywood puts it: “The best strain is the one that suits you today.” So tune in, light up and tune out. Here’s five great options for celebrating the end of one really weird year. Dark, mossy-colored buds accentuated by pops of deep purple and glazed with tiny dank crystals, GSC’s glamorous appearance is striking. Adrienne Airhart of Los Angeles dispensary The Higher Path calls the indica-dominant hybrid “the ubiquitous party strain.” GSC is a cross of euphoric California staple OG Kush and energizing Durban Poison, which is a pure sativa that summons creativity while relieving symptoms like pain and loss of appetite. GSC also reduces anxiety, making it an obvious go-to for the agoraphobic forced to socialize. Despite a high THC percentage (between 22 and 30 percent), the strain gets its party reputation because it’s easy to smoke a lot of without going becoming catatonic. GSC has subtle mint chocolate flavor notes – not unlike Thin Mints themselves – which led to the initial name. But that was forced to change after Girl Scouts USA sent a cease and desist letter to Oakland, California’s Magnolia Oakland collective. Either way, cannabis database powerhouse Cannacopia called GSC one of the year’s most-searched strains by its users.
