2013 THC Classic: Indicas

2013 THC Classic: Indicas

VicesJune 01, 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: Kosher Kush
This strain is one of the most sought-after strains in the world due to its unmatched potency and vast number of awards including first place indica in the High Times Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam for the past three years from DNA Genetics/Reserva Privada.  It was also warded the 2011 High Times Strain of the Year.  The Clinic has taken home first place Patients' Choice at the 2012 Denver High Times Medical Cannabis Cup as well as second place Overall Indica and Connoisseurs' Choice Indica at The Hemp Connoisseurs' 2012 Champions Cup.  The tight nuggets are blanketed with a dense layer of trichomes that glisten atop the dark swollen calyxes.  The lemon pine fuel aroma is delightfully accented by hints of mint and eucalyptus.
