Marijuana Strains Originating in Colorado

With all the marijuana strains available at Colorado dispensaries, curiosity regarding weed genetics and origins is bound to kick in sooner or later. You can find marijuana strains from all over the world here, as well as a few really good strains from Colorado that have become world-famous. Some of the better known marijuana strains originating in Colorado include Colorado Cough (also known as Fort Collins Cough), G-6 also known as Jet Fuel, Aspen OG, and High Country Diesel. These strains have provided the genetics for many of the popular newer strains you see in dispensaries today.

Read on to learn more about these acclaimed marijuana strains that originated in Colorado.

Colorado Cough Genetics and Origins

Colorado Cough is a strain originating in Colorado in the 1990s. This strain was first grown in Colorado by two students from Colorado State University in Fort Collins who had the brilliant idea of crossing a Northern Lights #5 with a Haze #17. The result is a powerful sativa head high with an equally relaxing effect on the body. It has a very earthy scent and a bit of an odd flavor, almost like it has a hint of old orange peels. It’s definitely not the tastiest of buds, but the long-lasting high more than makes up for what it lacks in flavor.

G-6 Jet Fuel Strain Genetics and Origins

G-6, also known as Jet Fuel, is a strain that first originated in Colorado. This Colorado sativa dominant hybrid strain was developed by Denver-based 303 Seeds from Aspen OG and High Country Diesel, two other strains originating in Colorado. The genetic lineage of G-6 includes original Diesel, East coast Sour Diesel, G-13 Haze, and SFV OG Kush (San Fernando Valley OG Kush). It has a piney flavor with hints of diesel. The high you’ll get from G-6 is very uplifting and lighthearted, so it’s great after a long day or whenever you need a pick-me-up.

Colorado Strain Aspen OG Genetics and Origins

Aspen OG is another strain developed in Colorado by 303 Seeds. It’s a cross between SFV OG Kush and Sour Cream. Coated in crystals, this bud looks almost frosty. It has an earthy yet sweet flavor that’s reminiscent of forests and berries. A hybrid, Aspen OG provides a happy high that may also leave you with a serious case of the munchies.

High Country Diesel Strain Genetics and Origins

High Country Diesel is another of the widely acclaimed hybrid strains originating from Colorado. A cross between Loompa’s Underdog a.k.a. Headband and East Coast Sour Diesel, High Country Diesel has impressive genetics. Loompa’s Underdog is a cross between Amherst Super Skunk and Chemdog, while East Coast Sour Diesel is a powerful sativa with energizing and euphoric effects. This makes High Country Diesel a great hybrid strain for those seeking an undeniable high that’s long lasting without rendering you completely immobile.
