It is legal to use marijuana recreationally in Colorado. That is why this state has become a hotbed for many cannabis seed growers. Of course, buying cannabis seeds in Colorado has become easy thanks to the emergence of different Colorado-based seed banks and breeders that sell the seeds of different strains.
Also, if you know your marijuana basics, not all cannabis strains are created to be equal. There are certain strains that perform well when grown in high-altitude areas and regions such as Colorado, where the climate is great for strains that love the cold. As such, there are strains that do well than others when grown in a place such as Colorado.
If you want to know the best strains to crow in Colorado, here are some marijuana seeds you might find interesting:
Durban Poison is a strain that hails from the port city of Durban in Africa. Durban Poison is a pure sativa that can very well be closely related to the landraces that originate from Africa. And because it is a sativa, you can expect to have energizing effects when you consume a bud of Durban Poison. However, what makes Durban Poison so popular in Colorado is that, other than the fact that it has a clean uplifting and energizing high, it helps you stay mentally and physically productive without all the psychoactive buzz you often get from sativas.
It might be weird to say that Durban Poison, a sativa that loves growing in warmer climates, grows well in Colorado. However, you also have to consider the fact that the state of Colorado is also rich in arid deserts where Durban Poison can fit and grow perfectly because of all the warmth and rich sunlight it can get.
2. Blue Dream
Wherever you go, Blue Dream will almost always dominate the cannabis market. This hybrid strain originated in the west coast in the United States and is the combination of two popular marijuana strains: the Blueberry (an indica) and the Haze (a sativa). Because of those great and legendary parent strains, you can expect Blue Dream to have the dreamy combination of indica and sativa effects plus the delicious and sought-after sweetness that many people love from Blueberry.
What makes Blue Dream great to grow in Colorado (other than the fact that it will fly off the shelves rather quickly) is that it has hybrid properties. What that means is that it can grow well in the cold and high-altitude climates of most Colorado cities and in the warm arid desert areas of the state. Blue Dream is also a very rewarding plant because of how people all over the US will always put this strain at the top of their demand list.
3. Girl Scout Cookies
Widely known as GSC, Girl Scout Cookies is a strain that really lives up to its name as a sweet and earthy kind of treat that will really make you feel like you are diving into a batch of cookies. GSC is a hybrid that was made when Durban Poison and OG Kush met. The result of that marriage was a strain that became a very popular treat in California and eventually made its way to Colorado, where it can grow well because of its attributes as a hybrid strain.
GSC has a good mix of indica and sativa effects but mostly stand out when it comes to its sativa high. This strain will provide you with a euphoric kind of sensation that you can normally expect when you smoke a good sativa. However, you will also begin to feel a spacey kind of sensation that will bend time and space as far as your perception is concerned. Of course, it comes with the relaxing high that its indica side provides you. That is why GSC is a winner of multiple Cannabis Cups.
4. Northern Lights
Northern Lights stands as one of the most legendary names in the history of the cannabis industry. This strain is a pure indica and is cherished worldwide for its clean effects. It comes from the indigenous landrace strains that hail from Afghanistan and Thailand and promises to give you effects that are as close to nature as possible. The high you can expect from Northern Lights is one that stays in the body in the sense that it relaxes your entire physical being to the point that it relieves you of stress and pain while also making you feel well-rested after a good nap.
Growing Northern Lights in Colorado is great because of how this indica performs well in the cold and northern climates of that state. On top of that, Northern Lights is a fast-growing flower that will yield buds quicker than most other strains. Of course, it is also a very resilient strain that is resistant to a lot of diseases and pests. No wonder it is one of the greatest strains of all time and could perhaps be the GOAT in the cannabis world.
Flo is a strain that is particularly popular in Colorado and is always in the stash of some of the best cannabis stores you can find in the state. It is also quite easy to get your hands on some Flo seeds in Colorado due to its sheer popularity in that region. Flo was a Cannabis Cup winner back in 1996 and is the result of the marriage between the Purple Thai and an Afghani Indica. That means that it is a hybrid strain with the properties of landraces.
What makes Flo a highly sought-after strain in Colorado are its great hybrid effects, which are considered very clean and natural because of its landrace parents. It has an energetic high that provides mental clarity. On top of that, Flo is a strain that can be harvested multiple times. As such, that is why it is named Flo, which comes from the “flow” of buds you can harvest when you grow its seeds.
