2013 THC Classic: Sativas

2013 THC Classic: Sativas

VicesMay 25, 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: Kali Mist
Our post-2000 cutting is a 90 percent sativa plant from Serious Seeds. A connoisseur's delight, Kali is one of the purest sativaas available.  This strain promises  strong and energetic buzz that is clear and functional.  Kali boasts a sweet and floral aroma that complements the subtle citrus spice flavor.

Second Place: Blue Dream
Blue Dream tastes like blueberries and cream with a hint of cotton candy.  Despite producing an intensely powerful high, Blue Dream doesn't cause the jitters that have scared some smokers away from other sativas.  Instead, Blue Dream provides relief from anxiety and stress, eases headaches and muscular discomfort, and provides an active, yet grounded, high.
