My Favorite Flavors of 2010
Here are my favorite flavors of 2010. All were grown outdoors organically in the Emerald Triangle. There is fine marijuana grown everywhere, here I am just sharing a bit of the Emerald Triangle with you. All of the strains below are dank but the rankings are not for potency which may vary but only for taste, which of course is subjective and personal.
1. Blue Dream
I think I have found a new favorite flavor. This mostly clone-only strain originated in Santa Cruz and is a cross of blueberry and haze. There is a nice hint of fruity berryness and the exquisite flavor of the haze is evident. Nice get up and go energetic buzz, but not as good for pain as straight blueberry.
2. Skunk #1 Well this is the first time I have ever smoked any skunk strain and I really liked the flavor. The buzz was good but not as enjoyable for me as a more sativa plant might give. One of my favorite flavors last year was Pot of Gold, and since it is a skunk cross that might explain its great taste.
3. Purple Urkel This Emerald Triangle legendary strain sure tastes good. It is my understanding that it is in fact a nice fanciful name for Purple Skunk, (Skunk #1 x Purple #1) which explains to me its great flavor.
4. Blueberry Well I tried some blueberry for the first time this year. I know, it is probably the most popular strain at the dispensaries in Arcata, I have been in line at those places and overheard the enthusiastic endorsements of the strain. But I am still new to marijuana after skipping 25 years or so and I figured what the hell all pot tastes the same more or less. Anyway I was in the late lamented Hummingbird Health in Myrtletown and they had some nice blueberry so I tried it. Then I tried a bit from HPRC in Arcata. Finally this month I was gifted a half an ounce from a grower here in the Triangle. (She must like my singing because I”m not getting any better looking. Ha!) Blueberry tastes wonderful, I guess some cuts are more fragrant than others, and some are more blue than others, but whichever cut this is is a fine tasting strain. Blueberry also seems to be very good at pain control.
5. Red Dragon. This is a strain, apparently from Barney’s Farm in Amsterdam. The taste is complex, interesting, maybe even challenging. It doesn’t quite taste like anything else, maybe the novelty is the attraction.
My favorite is still good old Arcata Trainwreck, but I don’t toke it for the flavor.
have a peaceful day,
