2013 THC Classic: Concentrates

2013 THC Classic: Concentrates

VicesJune 15, 2013

The Classic is Colorado's only blind-judging competition featuring more than 80 of the best strains, concentrates and edibles in the state.  Twenty-five judges had three weeks to test entries in five categories: sativas, indicas, hybrids, concentrates and edibles.  Five judges scored each category, with the highest and lowest scores dropped for each entry.  With so much choice bud, there was truly little separating all of the submissions.  We encourage all of our readers to try as many of these strains, concentraes and edibles as possible and judge for themselves.

First Place: Space Goat Shatter (Space Helmet X's Golden Goat)

Boulder Wellness crossed two Colorado-based strains to get the fragrant Space Goat.  This aromatice hybrid boasts a beautiful, potent shatter that tastes amazing.

Third Place: Yumbolt
Made from the Yumboldt flower, which is an old Himalayan Afghani, this wax was cultivated in California from 1970 through the early '90s. After careful selection, Yumboldt was released in 2001.  A mostly indica strain, Yumboldt tastes like orange cleaner with subtle grapefruit notes.  Expect a sedating, yet functional, high.  The terpines are strong, which translates well in concentrates, bringing a smile to any true connoisseur's face.
