2015 THC Classic: Colorado's Best Buds and Concentrates

2015 THC Classic: Colorado's Best Buds and Concentrates

VicesApril 30, 2015

Welcome to the 3rd annual THC Classic: Colorado's only blind-judging cannabis competition in which dispensaries and recreational stores submit their best strains for a chance to be crowned Colorado's best. We had our largest amount of entries this year with 100 strains submitted into our four judging categories: sativa, indica, hybrids and concentrates. For each category, we had five judges sample each strain over a one-month period without any knowledge of what the strain was or where it was from. All of our judges were picked based on legality, knowledge, expertise, community involvement and ability to judge consistently and impartially. This year’s grand champion strain with the highest overall score across all categories was Star Killer, a hybrid strain from Green Man. Congratulations to them and the other dispensaries that placed in the top ten. We look forward to next year and recommend that readers have fun sampling all the submissions — after all, they are the best of the best. We proved it.

Green Man
Star Killer
Denver


Star Killer is a great new hybrid with a heavy Indica dominant presence. The feeling comes on heavy and fast behind the eyes, then moves into the body for a high level of pain relief.

Southwest Alternative Care
White Lightning
Denver

A native Colorado strain, White Lightning is the wonderfully potent offspring of Sour Krush and The White. A combination of strength and beauty it’s exactly what you want in an Indica. The flower smells hash-like until you taste it and discover the fruity and earthy undertones which are almost as great as the strongly sedative and relaxing high.

Headquarters
Black Cherry Soda
Boulder/Lyons

This one-of-a-kind strain from Subcool has a distinct sweet-tart cherry aroma and smooth cream soda flavor, “Black Cherry Soda” packs an incredibly potent and sedative buzz.

Mile High Green Cross
Hell’s OG
Denver

Hell’s OG produces a heavy physical high to aid in relaxation. Smaller doses can help clear the mind. Larger doses creates an intense, overwhelming effect. This strain tests at 29.42% THC.

Ghost Train Haze is a great morning smoke. It lifts you up without the heart pounding, racy feeling that most haze-dominant strains have. The taste is lemon Pine-Sol with an incredible OG hint.

Mile High Green Cross
Chernobyl

This Sativa strain tastes like a lime slurpee or a delightful sherbert. It smokes just as it smells. The elevation is strong and pleasant. This strain tested at 23.4% THC.
