Buying Weed in Colorado

Buying Weed in Colorado

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 14 December 2020 in Canna Blog

Marijuana is widely available in Colorado. There are certain cities and counties which do not allow the sale of cannabis products, but you will not have to go far to find places where you can fulfill your cannabis cravings. If you’ve never done it before, buying weed in Colorado can be intimidating. What do you get? How do you know what to ask? Will I look like a noob? Don’t worry, here are a few things to know about buying weed in Colorado.

Buy weed in Colorado

Buying Legal Marijuana in Colorado

There are two types of dispensaries for buying weed in Colorado: Recreational and Medical. Many companies have dual storefronts as Colorado laws demand a separation of medical marijuana products from recreational store products. 

Buying Recreational Marijuana 

For recreational marijuana buying access is restricted to people over 21 years of age. If you possess a medical marijuana card you can start buying at 18 years old. For recreational marijuana, you just need your photo identification and your money and in the time it takes to get a coffee you can get an ounce from a dispensary. 

Buying Medical Marijuana 

By contrast, a medical marijuana card is not something you will just find on the street or come across by chance. It is a tool, available to those with medical conditions that must be obtained in steps. To obtain a medical marijuana card you must be a Colorado resident, visit a doctor, fill out the paperwork with the Colorado Department of Public Health, and wait for your approval. You will then receive approval in your email which you can print. 

Then you only need your card and your cash and you are on your way to finding the best-priced weed this side of the Mississippi River. 

Cannasaver has a page dedicated to this privileged segment of customers.

The Difference Between Buying Medical and Recreational Marijuana

The difference between recreational and medical marijuana is not the buds or concentrates. It is largely a difference based on price and quantities. 

Colorado taxes medical marijuana at a lower rate of just the standard state tax of 2.9% while recreational marijuana is taxed at 15% in addition to the standard state tax. 

The other big difference between medical and recreational marijuana legalities is the amount you can possess. A medical card carrier can possess up to 2 ounces of buds and someone who shops recreationally is only allowed up to 1 ounce. 

Cannasaver has a page dedicated to helping you find the best ounce deals. You can expect to pay a low of $39 for shake and up to $200 for top-shelf nuggets. Concentrates are also available to both medical and recreational customers. The same rules apply as with buds, medical cardholders can buy and possess more concentrates legally.

The Amount of Weed You Can Buy in Colorado

Dispensaries are heavily regulated and will let you know what your max carrying and purchase limits are for the day. Once you reach your limit for the day you cannot buy from the same place until the next day. Additionally, many places will only allow one visit per day even if you don’t max out your legal allotment. Plan wisely to avoid disappointment. 

Edibles, concentrates, and flower buds are all factored into the maximum purchase per day at any certain dispensary. You could max out on one of these products or select a combination of products. Your budtender during your visit will give you the best advice.

Carrying Weed in Colorado 

Another legality regards the way in which you carry your goods. The law requires “sealed” packages while traveling in public with your weed. Some dispensaries will charge you a few bucks for special bags designed with fancy “childproof” locks. Other dispensaries will simply staple your bag shut and the requirement is met. It may be tempting to rip open your bag before driving home but be aware that this could invalidate the “seal”. In the event you are examined by law enforcement there could be the question about if the seal is broken. 

Beware of traveling with open packages and be aware of heavy, “skunky” odors that could attract unwanted attention. In the state of Colorado, drug dogs are no longer used to detect marijuana and the smell of marijuana is not an automatic cause for the search of an automobile. Be sure that you are discrete when transporting from dispensaries to your private property to preserve your freedoms.

Weed in Public in Colorado

Consuming and driving is against the law. There are charges such as DUI for marijuana use when operating an automobile. If it is edibles or vapes or good old fashioned buds it is a requirement of the law that you do it on private property. 

Although it might seem fun to get high while skiing or hiking be careful as this could be a violation of state and federal laws as many of our favorite outdoor places are considered public lands.

Carrying Weed Outside of Colorado

Unfortunately, federal law does not allow one to cross state lines with marijuana products. This also applies to flying through Denver International Airport. It is illegal, although due to the decriminalization in Colorado and the city limits of Denver extending to the airport, it is rare for arrests to occur based on possession of Marijuana. Depending on where you are going, if caught with cannabis, the local authority will determine what charges, if any, should be brought. 

Reselling Weed

Another issue to be aware of is resale of marijuana is also against the law. Any sale of marijuana must be authorized by the state at a sanctioned dispensary. Not to worry about gifting your favorite stoner some buds though, as adults can still “gift” each other up to an ounce legally.

Be Responsible With Weed in Colorado

The moral of the story is that responsibility is required when dealing with the laws surrounding marijuana. Be careful, know your limits, and be responsible. There are numerous resources to explore to ensure you are aware of boundaries and laws such as CDOT’s website around drugged driving

Another great resource to consider is the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environments resources on getting a medical card.

Some activist events that cannabis lovers should consider attending to further the cause of access and decriminalization is the annual 4/20 rally in Denver civic center park. Also, consider writing your senator and house representatives to remove marijuana from the DEA schedule one drug list. 

End the war on cannabis and happy highs!

Colorado Moon Rocks

Posted by CANNASaver on Wednesday, 14 April 2021 in Canna Blog

Looking to blast off into outer space and bounce on the moon with the ultimate weed high? Well, if you're not Elon Musk, you're probably wondering how you can space travel. The ticket to ride: Moon rocks.

Moon rocks are some of the most expensive marijuana products that you’ll find on your dispensary menu. It is like the caviar of weed. They are considered one of the most potent ways to smoke marijuana out there.

But what are they exactly?

Colorado moon rocks

What are Moon Rocks?

Moon rocks originate from rapper Kurupt bringing them to fruition in 2014. The name comes from the way this particular brand of cannabis actually looks; like moon rocks.

Moon rocks are not a type of marijuana strain, but more of a cannabis experiment gone oh, so well. Moon rocks in Colorado (as well as anywhere else, for that matter) are made up of different cannabis products rolled into one very potent product admired and very desired for smoking.

They are premium marijuana buds, around a quarter width in size, that get dipped in hash oil, rosin, or live resin.

Moon rocks are then finished by rolling concentrate dipped, premium bud in beautiful golden kief.

Simply put, moon rocks are one big nugget covered in concentrate upon concentrate. Because of this, moon rocks can contain more than 50% THC. 

What Exactly is in Moon Rocks?

If you’re breaking apart a moon rock for the first time, it’s a lot like being a kid eating the perfect ice cream cone. Beginning with the most important, a premium base.

Premium Cannabis

The first and arguably most important ingredient used in moon rock production is premium, top-shelf cannabis. Moon Rocks are produced using any of the hundreds of premium strains out there.

A high concentration of trichomes often shows a particular marijuana strain with advanced cannabinoid production over other strains. High potency and terpene production tend to follow these strains. The color of these buds is incredibly vibrant and every cannabis strain is unique in its own terpene profile. 

But what ice cream cone is any good without some syrupy drizzle??

Concentrate

Cannabis concentrates are oils that are derived from the cannabis plant. Cannabis concentrates often hit between 60-80% in THC potency. Concentrates maintain terpenes from the marijuana plant thus adding to the overall cannabinoids being absorbed, natural taste involved, and controlling your overall high. 

Then, to top everything off, a nice cherry on top.

Kief

Kief is that precious goodness collecting in the bottom of your weed grinder. Dried buds are rubbed over a screen to separate the trichomes. Back and forth, this turns surrounding trichomes into a pile of THC crystals or kief.

Kief has much higher levels of THC than you find in regular buds. It can have around 50% THC making it about twice as strong as a regular flower. 

This beautiful concoction of kief, concentrate, and premium cannabis leads to high THC potencies between 50-90%.

Fly Me to the Moon, Already!

OG marijuana buds can be hit from a bong, or added to a pipe, vaporized, or even smoked out of an apple. But when it comes to consuming these delicious moon rocks, things get trickier and quite a bit stickier.

Attempting to roll up a joint of moon rocks just doesn’t really work all too well.

Moon rocks are made up of an assembly of different marijuana ingredients, the rocks have to be consumed differently than your ordinary buds. The wet/stickiness of the moon rocks caused by added kief and oils make the buds hard to light and to, therefore, smoke those delightful rocks.

Short Guide To Smoking Moon Rocks

  • Hand-break moon rocks, don’t grind: It can be difficult to grind up moon rocks due to their juicy coating of concentrate. It will completely gunk up your grinder and likely remove most of the moon rock's kief. Instead, break them up slowly with your fingers or cut off small pieces with scissors.

  • Glass Pieces: Pipes and bongs are the best way to smoke moon rocks without creating a huge mess. Lightly pack bowls of moon rocks into your favorite glass piece to ensure you lose as little of the moon rock ingredients as possible.

  • Use a hemp wick: The consistency of moon rocks makes holding a flame to your bowl needed for longer than one would typically hold for a regular bowl of MJ. Hemp wick will save you from potentially tasting way too much butane from a lighter and burning your fingers.

  • And finally: you should avoid rolling moon rock joints or blunts. Moon rocks are far too sticky to be rollable or anywhere near smokeable. Also, don’t pack bowls of moon rocks too tight. Too tight and the bowl will be incredibly difficult to light.

What Are the Effects of Moon Rocks?

Moon rocks are POTENT cannabis products. These are for people who have indulged in high-quality THC products. Since moon rocks contain much higher levels of THC, effects are stronger than regular cannabis products.

Effects intensify depending on some factors including the strain used in the rocks and your personal tolerance. Someone who’s not used to high THC cannabis tends to have more intense effects. Some of the common effects of moon rocks are:

  • Increased heart rate
  • Anxiety
  • Sleepiness
  • Impaired memory
  • Cough
  • More, non-life-threatening effects, like red/dry eyes, dry mouth, etc.

Kief vs Hash

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 25 March 2021 in Canna Blog

Frazier vs Ali. Coke vs Pepsi. Red Sox vs Yankees. Kief vs Hash.

Fortunately, there is no rivalry between kief vs hash – just some key differences.

Both are great ways to get high, though there are changes in composition, production, and ingestion that make each unique.

By the end of this article, you’ll know everything there is to know about both hash and kief.

Definitions of Kief and Hash

·         Kief – an accumulation of trichomes sifted from cannabis flowers with a mesh screen.

If you’ve ever used a grinder, odds are you’ve already run into some kief on your own. Kief is the small, powder-like substance you’ll find in a kief catcher. Most grinders are equipped with one on the bottom third portion. When using the grinder to break down flower, the smaller cannabis particles fall down to the kief catcher. These are among the strongest parts of the cannabis plant – kief can get you really high. Kief contains the highest concentration of cannabinoids (THCA, CBD, etc.) in the entire plant.

·         Hash (hashish) – a concentrate created by pressing the resin glands of the cannabis plant together.

Hash is essentially pressed and heated kief. When pressed, the composition of the kief changes. Kief itself is like a powder – hash is more akin to soft brick. This hash can be ingested on its own or used to make other concentrates. All concentrates – wax, shatter, oils – are essentially made from hash. Hash can be many different colors but is typically brown, green, or tan.  

History of Kief and Hash

Kief: Comes from an Arabic word meaning “pleasure.” This makes only makes sense, as kief holds some of the highest amounts of cannabinoids of the entire marijuana plant. It’s hard to track down the first time kief was ever used – wherever someone was breaking down marijuana, kief was being made. Old civilizations had been known to sift marijuana plants in order to obtain kief. As cultivation of weed has been traced back to as early as 500 BCE, one can assume kief was being used as well.

Hash: Hashish is really the original concentrate. Yes, kief is technically a concentrate – but that’s just collected, vs pressing/heating. Hash requires a process to be made. It’s been used both recreationally and medically for thousands of years. A reference to hash can be found in the book 1001 Arabian Nights, which was first published in 1775 – but the contents are likely from much earlier, somewhere between the 8th and 14th Centuries. There are also stories that link the use of hash to Haydar, the founder of the Sufi order. Hashish was widely used among ancient civilizations in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe. The concentrate even began to be studied for medical purposes in the early 1900s.

How Kief and Hash are Made

Kief: Kief isn’t as much of a making process as it is a collecting process. It’s really quite simple – use your grinder. The frequently you grind up flower, the more kief you will collect. Kief can also be collected using a sifter.

Hash: The process of making hash is slightly more labor-intensive. Kief is needed to get started on production. The higher the concentration of cannabinoids, terpenes, and trichomes, the stronger the hashish will end up.

The most common way of making hash at home uses a flat-iron or hair straightener, some parchment paper, and kief. Kief goes in the parchment paper, then it is pressed and heated with the iron or straightener. After a short amount of time, the kief will turn into an solid/liquid that can be dabbed or smoked.

Another common way to make hash is by just using the hands. Called charas, and popular in India, flowers are rolled in the hands until a paste-like solid is formed.

The production of hashish has a rich history and is different among many cultures. Still, the end result is the same – a strong concentrate rich with cannabinoids and terpenes.

How To Use Them

Kief: Kief can be used in a variety of ways. Since it’s so commonly collected among stoners, many people have found great ways to utilize all of the cannabinoids located within.

·         Top Off a Bowl or Joint: Kief is pretty strong by itself. It is possible to smoke it on its own, but its powdery texture often leads to incredibly strong hits and coughing fits. Kief really is strong enough that most people don’t need to smoke it by itself. Topping off a bowl or a joint is a great way to make your weed much more potent.

·         Make Cannabutter: Cannabutter is exactly what it sounds like. This product can be used to make stronger edibles than those made with just flower.

·         Spike Your Coffee: That’s right – a popular way to consume kief is by putting it in the morning cup of coffee. The heat of the coffee will activate the cannabinoids in the kief, leaving you with an ultra-relaxing cup of joe.

·         Make Concentrates: Kief can be used to make a variety of concentrates – hash, live resin, shatter, and others. A good way to use your kief is to make moon rocks. These are a combination of flower, hash oil, and kief and are an accepted form of homemade concentrates.

Hash: Hash can be used like most other concentrates – but also like flower as well.

·         Put It In a Joint: You can roll up hash in a joint like you would with kief. The hash will up the potency of your joint.

·         Smoke a Bowl: Hashish itself can be put into a bowl and smoked just like flower. Hash is typically very strong, so not as much will be needed as flower.

·         Dab: If made correctly hash can be dabbed like other concentrates. With enough heat, the hash will be melted into a liquid that can then be dabbed.

Kief vs. Hash

In the end, whichever you like better is really personal preference.

Though both kief and hash have distinct differences, the end result is the same – you’ll be high.

Wax Strains

Wax Strains

Posted by CANNASaver on Saturday, 06 February 2021 in Canna Blog

For those about to dab, we salute you.

Concentrates are definitely fun for veteran smokers. Concentrates such as wax were made for a modern stoner wanting smoking potency and efficiency. Cannabis concentrates often hit between 60-80% in THC potency, sometimes hitting higher numbers.
With an onset time of 1-3 minutes, the effects can last a few hours. Concentrates maintain the terpenes from the marijuana plant thus adding to the overall cannabinoids being absorbed, natural taste involved, and controlling your overall high. 

But which wax strains are best when considering concentrates to dab or produce from? We’re so very glad you asked.

wax strains

How To Choose Wax Strains

Marijuana strains with a wide spectrum of compounds and good flavor/aroma are typically chosen for high-quality cannabis concentrate. Dispensary extraction specialists prefer to use strains producing a mass amount of trichomes (kief). But best strains are often subjective. So here’s a list of a mixture of Sativa, Indica, and hybrid concentrates that are guaranteed to be making you feel good.

Grape Ape

One of the rare purple strains, Grape Ape is an often sought-out Indica strain. Grape Ape is a much beloved and popular strain with some to do with its legendary Grand Daddy Purp and Afghani lineage. 

The strain in its wax form hits high potencies much like its flower form. The wax can reach between 70-80+% THC. Grape Ape is also a fast grower, only taking between 7-8 weeks to flower. This can lead to more wax being produced.
The grape Ape concentrate has a grape-like smell and flavor. The strain provides pain-relief and is a great sleepy time high.

Pineapple Express

Pineapple Express in its wax form will, simply put, make your day better. As Saul from the movie, Pineapple Express (2008) once said, “It’s hands down the dopest dope I’ve ever smoked.” 

The one and only satisfying Sativa is a cross between Trainwreck and Hawaiian. The strain, in its concentrated form, astonished with thrilling smells; comparable to an apple or mango. How yummy does that sound? The taste is as close to pineapple, pine, and cedar as you can get.

Pineapple Express wax gifts you with a long-lasting, energetic high while heightening the senses to their absolute fullest. The concentrate provides productivity and creativity to flow and flow. “It’s almost a shame to smoke it. It’s like killing a unicorn, with like, a bomb”.

Wedding Cake

Don’t worry, we don’t have to sit at a wedding for this one. Wedding Cake is one of the newest crowd favorites on this wax list. The strain is a hybrid. It’s a cross between Cherry Pie and Girl Scout Cookies. 

Wedding Cake concentrate is very potent, anywhere between 80-90%. With vanilla smells and berry taste, the strain provides long-lasting euphoria and happiness. It provides pain relief, reduces insomnia, and helps with appetite. 

Green Crack

Though sometimes an off-putting name, Green Crack is a Sativa fan’s best friend. Not letting the name fool you, this Sativa is 100% energizing marijuana and delectable flavor, especially in wax form. The strain has a fast 7-8 week flowering time which is always nice with production. Outdoor grows can reach up to 20 ounces per plant.

Green Crack wax is the definition of pure energy. Green Crack wax has a super surge of cerebral ripples and sharpened focus. The concentrate has mouth-watering fruity/mango flavors and smells potent enough to blast you into space. 

Green Crack wax is a great daytime concentrate which aids in the fight against fatigue and stress. We think we could all use a little of that these days.

cannabis concentrate strains

Harlequin

For those with a need for a CBD-rich strain, Harlequin is the gal for you. This strain is a high yield producer. With a 2:1 THC: CBD ratio, Harlequin provides a flavorful and balanced wax.

Harlequin is low on THC potency but very high in CBD. With some THC present, you can still get a little THC high but it's more there to interact with the CBD (entourage effect). 

Harlequin concentrate has aromas of cherry, pepper, with a slight earthiness. Medicinal users often use it for pain, inflammation, and muscle spasms.

Chemdawg

Ah, Chemdawg. This beautiful strain is a classic. It’s continually crossed to create some of the best strains around today. With a good yield, Chemdawg was basically made for concentrate production.

Enhanced Diesel scents spread throughout the room when the strain became an extract. It has an orange and earthy taste to it. Chemdawg also drips in the terpene caryophyllene which gives the concentrate some spice. 

The terpene also provides the benefits of being an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anxiety/depression reducer.

Chemdawg is a well-known, euphoric strain; only enhanced through concentrate.

Sour Diesel

Incredibly popular, Sour Diesel is a 90% Sativa dominant strain with effects that are only enhanced through the concentrate process. Sour Diesel is a cross of Chemdawg and Super Skunk, making for one heck of a great smell. Sour Diesel flower can be produced as quickly as 11 weeks. 

Sour Diesel concentrates are typically full of citrus flavor and gassy smells. Really gassy! 

This fast-acting Sativa is great for an all-day bake of creativity and energy. Sour diesel is a long-lasting concentrate that will leave you happy, stress-free, and relieving any pain you may have.

OG Kush

Now if we may, I’d like to introduce a strain that needs no introduction really, the legendary OG Kush. OG Kush is a 75% Indica, 25% Sativa hybrid strain. With medium to large dense buds, OG Kush is perfect for making concentrates.

The concentrate packs high potency without ever feeling overly intense. OG Kush has very earthy smells with rich citrus, pine, and faint fruit flavors. 

OG Kush is great for the end of the day. Perfect for relaxing your body, surrounding you in calm, and leaves a smile on your face.

concentrate strains

Strawberry Banana

For me, taste and flavor are the number one factors I’ll choose a certain kind of wax/concentrate. That said, for those who value flavor in dabbing we bring to you, Strawberry Banana. This Indica heavy concentrate is rich in trichome/resin production. Also being a cross between Bubblegum and Banana Kush, this strain is the perfect candidate for a premiere cannabis concentrate.

Strawberry Banana has vibrant aromas of strawberry, banana, and other tropical fruits. The flavor follows suit, often being compared to the taste of a fruit smoothie. Yum!

Strawberry Banana provides a dreamlike head high, inducing creativity and sensory awareness. Sometimes even providing a slightly psychedelic experience. A lovely concentrate indeed.

Sweet Sweet

Speaking of such sweetness, we now bring to you a great strain of that “good good,” Sweet Sweet. This strain mirrors Strawberry Banana but for the Sativa lovers out there. The strain is high-yielding while producing beautiful trichomes. Perfect concentrate fit!

Sweet Sweet has a bubble gum aroma with tropical fruit flavors. It provides an energized and euphoric high that lasts for a long time.

Concentrates of Sweet Sweet can help combat headaches/migraines and drastically reduce stress.
So now we hope we’ve helped you select the best concentrate strains for you. 

Check out Cannasaver for the best concentrate deals out there. Select wisely and based on what kind of high will suit you best.

Sativa or Indica for Nausea

Sativa or Indica for Nausea

Posted by CANNASaver on Sunday, 22 November 2020 in Canna Blog

Have you ever been sick to your stomach or hungover and the only cure is a bowl, puff, or nibble? Nausea can be unbearable; lights and sounds are abrasive, and food is repulsive. We are sure you have looked up remedies and still find that the best help for nausea is the ancient plant, cannabis

However, when it comes to the medicinal plant, are there certain strains or products that may help with relief over others? Sativa or indica for nausea? Not all strains are created equal. Although each strain has its certain characteristics and properties, there’s one particular genetic strain that is highly favored.

Relieving Nausea with Cannabis

Relieving Nausea with Cannabis

Nausea is a symptom of the body working to clear out what it recognizes as toxicity. It is part of the body's nervous system which creates an “emetic” or vomit response to expel toxins. While this is incredibly helpful for dangerous and acute poisonings, it can interfere with much-needed treatments or the ability to eat and get nourishment. Marijuana is effective in helping many different nauseating ailments from hangovers to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, to eating disorders, and even helping with wasting syndrome.

 

Ancient Remedy

The anti-nausea properties of cannabis are scientifically and medically recognized by various health organizations around the world. Perhaps it is no shock to find evidence of marijuana use in ancient cultures. 

The plant is one of the earliest forms of pharmaceutical treatments. Cannabis has been found in the inscriptions of ancient Greece, verified as an ingredient in incenses in Mesopotamia, and proven to be infused in drinks known as “Bhang” in India for thousands of years up to this day.

 

Relief Through Inhalation

The quickest way to utilize the benefits of marijuana for nausea is by inhalation. This could be through the combustion of flower buds or dabbing and vaping of concentrates. Ingestion of tinctures, which are liquid distillations of cannabis, is also quite effective although the activation time is longer, requiring twenty to forty-five minutes. 

 

Relief Through Ingestion

Edibles may also be consumed to combat nausea although their activation time is generally thirty minutes to an hour. It can be hard to swallow food when feeling sick to your stomach, so proceed with caution if eating edibles. People may think stronger is better but that is not always the case. 

 

Less is More

To relieve nausea you don’t always need the highest THC content. A moderate range of 12%-20% will do just fine for most people to rid your body of the pukes. Stronger strains will most certainly work also and are great for people seeking an elevated experience on top of the alleviation of symptoms. 

The best way to determine what is right for you is to ask questions of your budtender, smell the buds, and make sure they mesh with your physiology. Some people respond well to citrus strains, others bodies are happier with cheese or gasoline scents. 

So, what is the quickest way to relieve nausea? Sativa or indica for nausea? 

Indica for nausea

Indica for Nausea

The answer to that question is almost always Indica. There are some great sativa and hybrid candidates to also help with nausea, but indica reigns supreme. Indica is the best remedy for body aches and nausea. Known for a higher concentration of CBD to THC, this helps to minimize the flighty feelings and ground your body. The endocannabinoid system in the body is responsible for regulating nausea and vomiting. A nice mix of CBD and THC will help you to achieve an optimal state of relief. Indica strains are helpful in relaxing the body. Strains such as OG Kush, Critical Condition, Lavender, and Granddaddy Grape Ape are amazing at giving almost-instant relief. 

Sativa for nausea

Sativa for Nausea

While there are many reasons to choose a sativa strain, nausea is not usually one of them. Sativa strains are known to help with energy, mood, and motivation. The cerebral high a sativa strain induces is not conducive to calming the body. It can do the exact opposite of calming and make you feel restless and agitated. Sativa is great for day time adventures and socializing but not quite the remedy for nausea. Due to its stimulating effects, sativa will suppress your appetite while giving you the boost you need to conquer the world. There are some sativa strains that are amazing at helping with nausea if you can handle the flight. Durban poison, Sour Diesel and Tangerine Kush are all known for mitigating nausea symptoms while supplying the motivation and energy boost to get moving.

Hybrid strains for nausea

Hybrid Strains for Nausea

Hybrids are also a good remedy for nausea. Many dispensaries and grow houses are crossing genetics and creating new proprietary strains. It is always a good idea to ask your budtender their opinions of the latest batches emerging from their labs. 

Some dispensaries design strains specifically for nausea mitigation or controlled highs by limiting the THC and pumping up the contents of CBD. Some hybrid strains such as Cherry Lime Haze present amazing flavors and a perfectly balanced blend of CBD and THC.

Strongest Indica Strain

Strongest Indica Strain

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 16 November 2020 in Canna Blog

When smoking concentrates or flower, everyone has their own specific preference. Some people are looking for a creative, productive, functioning high while others are looking to melt into the couch. We understand all spectrums of flight, so we know just what to recommend, depending on what you’re wanting. 

Looking for the strongest indica strain there is? Whether you’re looking for flower, wax, or other concentrates, we have some recommendations for you based on just how “high” you’re looking to get. But first, it’s best to know what to expect with different products and the amount of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) each type of product usually contains. 

 

Different Products and THC Levels

From CBD-only products with 0% THC to heavy-punching cannabis with 36% THC to interstellar highs with 80% concentrates of THC in wax or shatter, you can choose the altitude of your “flight.” 

CBD compared to strongest indica strain

CBD Only

Products which are lower in THC and high in CBD will result in a more relaxed, body feel with little-to-no psychoactive high. This is a great product for beginners, which comes in various forms, from creams to flower and concentrates to start. We recommend these products for treating body pain or anxiety and are looking to keep it chill, yet functionable. 

flower bud strongest indica strain

Flower (Bud)

The next stronger product is flower, which normally has between 8% to 36% (rising every day) of THC. This is the traditionalist’s go-to, as most dispensaries cure the bud to be in perfect form for bongs and pipes. You can use flower buds to combust away the blues of the day or celebrate with friends and even make peace with frenemies.

concentrate form of marijuana

Concentrates

The strongest forms of cannabis are known as concentrates. This is the distilled form of cannabis that comes in the form of distillate wax, live resins, shatter, butter, and new offerings every day! The most common use of these concentrates is in vapes, dabs, or topping off flower bowls. You may also find CBD-only concentrates, although you will also find the strongest THC strains and one-hit wonders, including some of the strongest indicas out there, guaranteed to knock your socks off. 

marijuana Edibles

Edibles

Another widely available product is edibles. These are not the same brownies that your fun aunt made. Edibles now come in chocolate bars, honey sticks, cookies, gummies, waffles, ice cream, soda pops, teas, coffees, and more. The dosage of these is controllable most of the time and first-time users should tread lightly. 

 

Sativa vs Indica Strains

In the world of weed, that was a lot of information. Yet we still have not addressed the difference between indica and sativa! On top of the THC and CBD content, there is another criterion to consider. That is daylight smoking versus nighttime, bright versus mellow, and active versus chill. 

 

Sativa

Most will associate sativa with the bright, citrus, active spectrum. This high is usually characterized by fun psychoactive head highs, energy, spurts of creative intensity, and those deep, existential debates with your smartest friends. Some will run record times on their exercises, invent new paradigms, or chase their dreams with the stimulating nature of a sativa strain. 

 

Indica

The opposite end of strains is the dank, earthy, chilled indica. The indica heavy strains are great for winding down and watching a movie, slowing the racing thoughts, preparing for a big meal, and making sure you sleep like a baby (when you think of indica, think, “in-da-couch”).

 

Hybrids

We cannot forget in the modern world of genetics, the hybrids. These strains are engineered to give you the best of both worlds. Hybrids can help you get high but still feel a body relaxation/chill. They are a great option for those who like the middle ground and do not feel like running ten miles or passing out. This is a good option if you must see people who you want to impress. Hybrid strains are also perfect for the functioning cannabis user.

Strongest Indica Strains

There are many indica strains to choose from and wherever you are you will find new and novel genetics. We will attempt to rank the top ten and name a winner, but keep in mind – wherever you choose to go will have great strains to pick from, regardless of their name. Before we list our recommendations of the strongest indica strain, knowing what you should look for in an indica is helpful.

 

What to Look for in a Strong Indica Strain

  • Color - Some things to look for are the colors of the buds. Indicas are known for having darker colored purple or dark green buds. Some may have transparent or orange hairs with crystals. 
  • Smell - It is wise to smell the buds and the danker, dark fruit smells such as plum, grape, or black currant flavors are a good signal. Other notable scents are skunk, wet socks, cheese, and gasoline.

strongest indica strains

Ogre Indica Strain

Ranking #10: Anything with the name OGRE. Yes, like Shrek this term is a good indicator that you will be transported to the swamp of your couch and locked into your cozy home.

 

Northern Lights Indica Strain

Ranking #9: Northern Lights. This strain will surely have you stargazing at the back of your eyelids before the end of your favorite movie.

 

Afghani Kush Indica Strain

Ranking #8: Afghani Kush. Likely to be found crossed with other strains Afghani Kush is always a heavy-hitting, tasty strain. Thank your veterans for this strain!

 

Critical Kush Indica Strain

Ranking #7: Critical Kush. When you have “critical” in the name, you know it is serious. These strains may be crossed but are always known to give great body relief. If you have heavy body pains this is the one you should be looking for.

 

“Cheesy” Indica Strains

Ranking #6: Cheese anything. These cheese strains are wide-ranging but well known for their appetite-inducing effects and obvious smell. The giveaway is the cheesy or “dank” smelling aromas emanating from their dense buds.

 

OG Kush Indica Strain

Ranking #5: OG Kush. The “original gangsta” kush is one of the oldest strains. It is a great indica which usually has a gasoline-like aroma. This strain burns well but is especially known for rolling epic blunts.

 

Acapulco Gold Indica Strain

Ranking #4: Acapulco Gold. Named after exotic beaches in foreign places you can imagine this strain will have you feeling like you are on vacation. Kick those feet up and fall asleep, listening to the sound of the waves in your head.

 

Blue Dream Indica Strain

Ranking #3: Blue Dream. The dreamiest. Like floating on cloud nine this is a euphoria-inducing strain that will make all better in the universe.

 

Bubba Kush Indica Strain

Ranking #2: Bubba Kush: Your best friend Bubba always delivers a hard-hitting high that will have you laughing all the way to your bed. 

 

Grandaddy Grape Ape Indica Strain

Ranking #1: Granddaddy Grape Ape is the king of the indica jungle. In our opinion, it’s the strongest indica strain you’ll find. If you do find it, buy as much as you can. Known for its eye-catching purple buds and grape smelling aromas, this is a strain that can knock you out even before you finish your bowl.

Indica Strains for Pain

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 19 July 2021 in Canna Blog

If you are one of many Coloradoans who suffer from chronic aches/pain. These types of ailments challenge those who suffer from them daily. 

Modern pain solutions tend to be things such as heavy-duty painkillers. And I promise you, they absolutely can do more negative than positive

Though it should be known, pain relief from marijuana will feel different from person to person. One strain may work better for some than others. Sometimes pain relief isn’t felt enough with consuming cannabis.

marijuana vs opioids

Marijuana vs Opioids

Opioids are medications typically prescribed for pain relief from nerve-related problems. These are often called painkillers. The problem that continues to rise every day in our country is that opioids are extremely addictive. 

But the light does shine...

Our Fair Lady Mary Jane offers a powerful and natural alternative to opioids (for most people, not all). Our bodies naturally make endocannabinoids and are received through our endocannabinoid system. When it comes to pain management, everyone is going to be different in terms of situation and biology. This system acts to maintain balance in our bodies. 

Masterclass Pain-Relieving Indica Strains

Alright, so we've established that marijuana can really help alleviate some of that pain you're feeling – more specifically, indica strains. So these are the best indica strains for pain (in our opinion):

Afghan Kush

Afghan Kush is a great way to begin finding pain-relieving strains. Afghan Kush is known to be amazing at removing deep nerve pains. The strain is ideal for users who prefer using cannabis medicinally while unwinding in the evening. Afghan Kush is an ultimate strain for anyone looking to relax and shake off pains.

Blackberry Kush

Blackberry Kush is a tasty, Indica dominant cannabis strain. Blackberry shines with clusters of trichomes. This strain is the epitome of indicas with a powerful couch-lock feeling. This feeling also provides a happy, relaxed mindset, blissful euphoria, which leads to sleepiness. The delicious strain helps best for those who suffer from chronic pain or insomnia.

Bubba Kush

Bubba Kush is a legend among smokers. This wonderful indica strain has a classic rich flavor when smoked and is well-known for its relaxing full-body effects. For this reason, Bubba Kush is also known as a sleeping pill. Bubba Kush also aids with lowering stress.

Death Star

Fear not, this Death Star will only fire lasers of bliss and relief. Not so sure what those pesky Rebels were yelling about.

Death Star is typically high in THC. Consumers can expect a blast of euphoria which promotes a state of blissful relaxation for hours. This force-yielding strain can also help with depression. 

indica for pain

9LB Hammer

Like a powerful blow from Thor’s mighty hammer itself, 9lb Hammer is a heavy-hitting sedative, helping those who suffer from insomnia for years now. The strain clocks in between 20-23% THC.

9lb Hammer is a fruity indica that can help alleviate high doses of stress/pain in no time at all. As its name states, 9lb Hammer has heavy effects that last for a while. The strain promotes feelings of euphoria and crushes insomnia like it was nothing!

Master Kush

Master Kush is one of the more known Indica strains for sleep. The experience of Master Kush is often noted as helping with chronic pains in the body. With high THC levels, this strain is extremely potent and can catch you off guard. Not necessarily for first-timers.

Northern Lights

Like a shimmering aurora borealis, Northern Lights is a strain well-known for pain relief/relaxation. The strain is known for giving users a couch-lock and full mental relaxation.  Northern Lights is the perfect strain to unwind after your day. 

Because of its popularity, Northern Lights isn’t typically too hard to find. The strain has the ability to ease insomnia, anxiety, depression, and stress. 

White Widow

White Widow is my absolute favorite strain. Seriously, if you can try it, do it! It’s famous for a reason.

White Widow is typically used by those who have chronic pains, insomnia, or anxiety/depression.  commonly used by patients with pain and also with insomnia and anxiety. White Widow delivers the consumer into a sense of euphoria. This allows you to feel comfortable/happy as you fall asleep.

When consuming the many different forms of marijuana on the market today, consumers tend to find favorite strains along the way. Whether the outcome is productivity, melting into the couch, pain relief, or creativity, we know what we like and want in marijuana’s effects.

We Coloradans know what we like when it comes to how we “choose our own highs”. Innovation in marijuana continues to gain traction at the speed of light. You will see some classics on this list but also note the newcomers. With such innovations come delicious, mouth-watering products with extremely potent results.

With that said, let’s look at the top strains in Colorado.

Do note: strains tend to appear and disappear all the time. You can’t always expect to get these strains but we guarantee if you do, you’ll be all the better for it. You can check here for deals on all bud.

top strains in colorado

Top Strains in Colorado

Without further ado, here are our top strains that you can find here in Colorado.

​​99 Problems

“If you're having girl problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems”

Gotta stop you right there, Mr. Z, is it? Or can I just call you Jay? We’ve already got it!

99 Problems is a sativa-dominant strain being the result of breeding Stardawg and White 99. The strain tends to bathe those who live wildly in the strong aroma of sweet fruit/berries. 99 Problems blasts through your senses with positivity, energy, and a grand boost of focus.  This potent strain often hits between 28-30% THC. 

Let it be known, 99 Problems is not for beginners.  

Afghan Kush

The awesome strain needs no introduction!

Afghan Kush is known for being a pure indica strain that can be traced for centuries. The strain is known for having body heavy effects which allow the consumer peace of mind and possibly a visit from the sleep fairy.

Afghan Kush manages sleeplessness in canna-newbies who might be more prone to paranoia when trying to unwind. This comes from the high yield of CBD in the strain.

With a homely earthy aroma and taste notes of old-school hash, Afghan Kush shows proud lineage through dense buds and many shiny trichomes.

Blue Walker

Blue Walker is the beautiful hybrid of the strains Blue Dream and Skywalker OG. This force-yielding strain is almost a pure sativa at 90%. THC percentages tend to stick to 26-30%.

Blue Walker will grant you a long-lasting buzz of euphoria. The strain is known to help with anxiety, pain, depression, nausea, and stress

Bruce Banner #3

AKA The Incredible Hulk is the strain many consumers seek after. The strain has effects of euphoria and happiness, that come quite quickly.  With THC levels between 23-26%, it is easy to see why Mr. Banner is gaining popularity.

Bruce Banner #3 is a sativa dominant hybrid being a cross of  Strawberry Diesel and OG Kush. BB #3 is known for being incredibly relaxing. The sativa head high achieves euphoric greatness, with allowance for creativity and boosting mood. The strain is nice and sweet, with flavors of citrus. 

Chocolate OG

Chocolate OG is an indica dominant strain and is well known for its highly relaxing chemical structure. Chocolate OG is the immaculate cross with Chocolate Rain (Also sounds awesome) and True OG. THC percentages in this strain come close to 30%. 

Chocolate OG delivers flavors with cheesiness and hazelnut but lingers with cocoa aromas. The buds in this strain are nicely capped with icey trichomes. The chocolatey goodness allows you to fall into a euphoric/giggly sensation. 

Chocolate OG effects help to reduce pains, aid in combating insomnia, and other health-filled benefits. Come try this, the Willy Wonka in you is screaming.

Green Crack

Let it be known, you will not become a Dave Chappel skit. Green Crack is only pure energizing sativa. No trace of crack here, whew…

Green Crack is the definition of pure energy, focus, and fun-having good times. Green Crack has incredible cerebral effects and maintains its awe through mouth-watering fruity/mango flavors. Green Crack is a great daytime strain helping fight fatigue and stress. Green Crack is extremely appealing to those needing to get stuff done and have fun doing it.

Grease Monkey

This is an Indica-dominant weed strain resulting from a cross between Gorilla Glue and Cookies and Cream marijuana strains. It is the highest THC percentage flower on our list, with a whopping value of 31%. This value can significantly vary depending on the growth conditions, as already stated.

Grease Monkey has a strong aroma of nutty vanilla and skunky diesel. When smoke, the high effect builds behind the eyes and then spreads to the rest of the body. It drives you to a euphoric high characterized by mental calming effects. Medicinally, this strain is a remedy for chronic pain, nausea, insomnia, loss of appetite, etc.

Hell's OG

Hell’s OG buckles down with a heavy, indica dominant breed of the strains Blackberry and OG Kush. Hell’s OG sounds scary at first, but ends up being a citrus flavored, candy-coated treat.

Hell’s OG is known for its psychoactive effects. The strain is well-known to destress consumers from mind and body, allowing for some timeless bliss. Hell's OG has been used to treat PTSD and insomnia. First-timers beware. This stuff is awesomely potent.

Ice Cream Cake

This is a tasty treat I was able to try recently. Almost as relaxing as ice cream on a hot day.

Ice Cream Cake produces large, dense nuggets of golden green. Ice Cream Cake is the cross of Animal Mints and Triangle Kush. The strain mirrors flavors of vanilla for pure delight. The aroma is a classic skunky one. You can expect your sesh to encounter body relaxation and ease you into dreamland.

Jungle Cake

Ohh! More cake! Just remember, in terms of marijuana, anytime you see cake...get it!

Jungle Cake is the cross of the strains Wifi and Wedding Cake. The strain struts in with light smells of sugar/frosting with pungent fuel.

Jungle is also another on the list to reach up to 30% THC potency. The strength ensures a lasting, powerful high.

Sour Diesel

And last, but most certainly not least. A legendary favorite. Sour Diesel, the popular sativa that just doesn’t slow down. Sour Diesel is a perfect addition to a day of adventure. Sour diesel is a long-lasting strain that will leave you stress-free and relieve any pains you may have.

Being a 90% sativa dominant strain, the high you will feel from Sour Diesel can help you access hallways of creativity. This strain is typically pretty high in THC being between 20-25%.

Most Potent Forms of THC

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 26 August 2021 in Canna Blog

When it comes to consuming cannabis there are many routes one can choose from. There is the tried and true tradition of rolling up a joint, or maybe even cracking a “Backwoods” or “Swisher” down the middle and loading that bad boy up with some tasty, ground flower. Or maybe you’d like to try some of those “fire extracts” your buddy has been raving about. Brownies, cookies, Rice Crispy treats; sometimes it seems like more choices than someone may want to make when all you really want is to unwind after a long day and smoke some jazz cabbage. Well, fear not, friends! We here at Cannasaver are here to sift through scientific reporting and many, many smoke sessions to bring you a guide to THC potency and give you our recommendations on what we’ve been puffing on. Here’s our take on the most potent forms of THC for you big doobie dawgs out there.

most potent forms of thc

The Testing

If you’ve ever been to a dispensary, I’m sure you’ve seen those percentage numbers on every different strain at the counter.  

What those numbers mean is that the entire crop of whichever strain you are looking at had to be tested by a Colorado Marijuana approved lab before it is able to be sold at a recreational store.  

  • The first things a lab always tests for are residual pesticides, heavy metals, or other contaminants that may have been left behind during the buds growing period.  

This is fantastic for us as cannabis consumers because we know coming from a reputable source that it is clean, green weed!  

  • The second thing a lab will test for is the potency of the cannabis, extract, or edible that the grower wants to sell. 

In most cases, flowers will typically range from 15% THC to as high as 35% in some strains. 

That’s some chronic weed, man.  

Wax, shatter, distillate, and rosin can range from the mid-70s to mid-90s in the percentage of THC.  

Blast off, baby!! These are your most potent forms of THC. 

Edibles are measured a bit differently in the sense that it’s not a percentage of THC per edible, it is milligrams of THC per serving.

The Flower

Just like you and I, every cannabis plant has its own set of genetics that gives it the physical characteristics and potency that it possesses.  

Some strains come in with much higher and potent THC levels than others. 

Here are some of our favorites:

Here's a deal for one of our favorite strains, Cherry Lime Haze -  $59.99 oz of Cherry Lime Haze 20% THC

This strain is a hybrid blend of Sativa and Indica.  

While it’s not one of the most potent forms of THC, it’s a great choice for a midday smoke break because it only has 20% THC levels.  

It gives a great heady high and tastes great!  

This is a great strain for encouraging creativity and relaxing the body. 

One of our favorite stores, Herbs4you, always stocks a great mix of sativas and indicas at great prices.  

Here, you can talk to a trained "bud-ologist" about the different strains they have for sale.

wax is the most potent form of thc

The Extracts

When it comes to weed and its potency, some have taken the method of getting a “high score” to a new level.  

There are several different ways to consume weed extracts whether it be through shatter, wax, dabs, rosin, distillate, or cartridges.  

All of these products tend to have a much higher level of THC than the flower your grandad used to puff on.  

Wax or shatter is usually made through a hydrocarbon method of extraction giving it a very pure and clean taste.  The rosin is made through a pressure and heat extraction giving it a very terpene-filled earthy taste, and the distillate and cartridges people smoke are a very convenient and tasty way to puff on the go.

Our friends over at The Stone Dispensary have you covered on your wax and shatter needs. 

Right now they have a deal on grams of extract so you can sample a few different flavors and pick your favorite.  

We recommend their ever-potent Wedding Cake.  

As for distillate, one of our favorite, most potent deals is from La Bodega.

They are offering two carts right now for $30.  Cartridges are one of the most potent forms of THC. They’re a great way to smoke high percentage THC on the go.  

They smell great, are discreet, and get you super ripped.

edibles are the most potent forms of thc

Edibles

The edibles available today have come a long way since making a double boiler out of a mixing bowl and pot in your friend's kitchen to make some dank cannabutter.  There was always the one batch of cookies that came out way stronger than anyone expected and got everyone catatonically stoned for the night.  There are some great bakers out there who specialize in getting you baked. 

Edible dosage is measured in milligrams per serving instead of THC percentage.  In general, edibles will keep you high longer but creep up slower than taking a bong rip or smoking a joint.  Your body is able to uptake the THC and cannabinoids through the digestive system giving a great body high along with the head high. 

Check out our friends over at AMCH Denver for a smoking mix and match deal. 

They allow you to pick 4 different edibles for $60!  It's a great way to eat and get the munchies at the same time.  The more you eat, the hungrier you get. 

Gummies are a great way to dose out THC in manageable amounts if you need to be productive.  We love to mix CBD with THC in one tasty treat.  Check out Stone Dispensary for some dank deals on some dank gummies.  These aren't quite the same as the old Flintstones gummies we had as kids but they do pack 50 mg of vitamin THC (not actually a vitamin, don’t come at us). 

Thanks for reading our guide to the most potent forms of THC and have fun testing them out for yourselves.
