Let’s be real: no one goes shopping at a Colorado dispensary hoping to find a weak cannabis strain. It feels like the ultimate betrayal when you get home and open that new jar of flower only to realize it’s brittle, dry and barely even gets you high.
When you visit The Spot 420, you can rest assured our Pueblo, Colorado dispensaries and Trinidad dispensary will be stocked with the best Colorado weed strains. Looking for the strongest indica strain to help you wind down after a long day? We’ve got you covered. Want a potent sativa strain to boost your energy levels? Look no further than The Spot 420!
But in case you’re stuck shopping elsewhere (we’ll try not to take it personally), there are some easy tips you should know to help you pick the most potent strains just by looking at them.
How to Identify Potent Colorado Weed Strains
When you’re shopping for potent Colorado weed strains, there are few things to remember that will help you know you’re looking at a quality option. Always keep these three visual cues in mind while browsing at a Colorado dispensary and you’ll never go home with dry, lame cannabis again.
Avoid Certain Colors
The color of cannabis can vary greatly. There are even cannabis strains streaked with purple, red and orange. But there are two colors you should always avoid. Generally speaking, cannabis with dark brown splotches or tan coloring is a warning sign to walk away. Both of these colors can indicate degradation, maybe because they were bad quality to start with or they’ve been sitting under harsh dispensary lights for too long.
Make sure there are plenty of glistening trichomes
Strong Colorado weed strains will have a glistening outer coating visible to the eye. What looks like frost on the outside of a cannabis nug is really made up of something called trichomes. And trichomes are absolutely vital to any cannabis strain, whether it’s a strong indica or sativa, because they house something called terpenes. Terpenes hold much of the flavor, aroma and effects of cannabis so be sure the strain you choose has a healthy dose of frost.
Check for visible seeds
While shopping for cannabis in Colorado, seeds are a sign that you should move on to a different product. Don’t get us wrong. Cannabis is a plant, so seeds are part and parcel of dealing with a natural substance. But too many seeds show signs of a low-quality product. That’s because marijuana seeds redirect the plant’s energy away from growing robust and potent buds, leaving you with a subpar product.
Strongest Sativa Strains in Colorado
Despite the slightly alarming name, Green Crack is a smooth and delightful sativa strain. A few hits of this and you’ll feel a distinct boost in energy and focus. You’ll see that this strain is absolutely coated with glistening trichomes, producing a tangy flavor and fruity aftertaste. With a THC content between 17.71% to 23.95%, Green Crack is a perfect strain for starting your day or during a night out on the town.
You can find this strain at either of The Spot 420’s recreational dispensaries in Pueblo, Colorado or our Trinidad, Colorado dispensary.
Just like the country rock musician this strain is named after, Lucinda Williams has a way of making you feel happy, calm and creative. This is one of those strains that produces nugs streaked bright red and covered in dense white trichomes. It really is a beauty to behold. As easy as it is to look at, the tart orange flavor followed by subtle pine and mint notes is even better.
This is one of the most sought after Colorado weed strains of all time and you can get it from Trinidad dispensary or Pueblo, Colorado dispensaries.
Strongest Indica Strains in Colorado
Looking for one of the strongest indicas on the market? Afghani is a tried and true option to keep you feeling deeply relaxed and euphoric. It’s known for its heavy resin production and dense nugs with speckles of purple throughout. Medical marijuana patients often use this strain to help treat insomnia, pain and stress. Take a couple puffs of Afghani and watch all your stresses from the day melt away.
This was one of the top indica strains of 2017 and Durango OG’s popularity shows no signs of waning. A cross between Alien OG and Alien Bubba with a 18.81% to 25.45% THC content, be ready for a heavy hitting body high that will keep you locked to the couch. And the unique taste, a mix of earth, pepper and rubber, is oddly satisfying. If you have trouble falling asleep, give Durango OG a try. It’s long lasting effects will keep you relaxed for hours.
