The new year is a time of looking forward to the future and a time of reflecting on the past, so it seems like the perfect opportunity to look back on some of the best strains of marijuana we Colorado stoners got to enjoy last year, and which we hope we’ll continue to see plenty of in the new year. Here are ten of the top strains of 2017 for Colorado, which we predict will continue to be among the most popular strains for 2018, as well.
