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.

Best Weed Strains for Productivity

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 24 May 2021 in Canna Blog

When people think of stoners, the stereotype is usually that we sleep, eat and laugh…. A lot! While cannabis can be very sedating and relaxing, the reality is that not all strains have these ‘stoney’ attributes. 

There are countless reasons why people love and use Cannabis. While some people use it to help themselves relax, others use it to boost focus, creativity, and mental clarity -- like a cup of coffee.

A misconception about weed is that it makes people lazy. Sure, some strains are more sedating than others, but there is also a plethora of strains known to increase focus, energy, and creativity.

It all depends on how you pair your strains with particular activities.

If you’re unsure about which strains will help with your day-to-day productivity, seek the help of your budtender and they might just point you to the perfect strain for your needs.

Chemdawg

Chemdawg is a potent strain known for its strong cerebral effects. It’s also known to increase focus and can make you feel more social. The hybrid strain is rich in THC (15-20%) and low in CBD, it’s also known to be fast-acting, so be ready to get hit with that energizing high.

Sativa vs. Indica

If you feel like it’s hard for you to focus or remain productive after a smoke sesh, try switching strains, or saving that specific strain for the nighttime. Some people like to smoke Sativa dominant strains during the day and Indica strains at night. This is because Sativa-dominant strains usually contain higher percentages of THC compared to CBD, whereas Indica-dominant strains are the opposite. 

Typically, Sativa strains are more stimulating and are known for producing a “head high,” that increases creativity and focus, while Indica strains are more sedative, producing more of a body high with increased feelings of relaxation.
