Colorado to Host 2011 Cannabis Cup - World's Most Prestigious Marijuana Celebration

Every April since 1987 thousands have headed to Amsterdam from around the world to take part in the most prestigious and well know celebration of the cannabis culture.  The High Times Cannabis Cup is a annual competition that allows judges to sample unique marijuana strains grown by some of the most experienced cannabis cultivators on earth.  Judges then vote for their favorite marijuana strain.  Once the votes are tallied, the marijuana strain scoring the highest is crowned Cannabis Cup winner.  Being named Cannabis Cup winner can turn unknown marijuana strains into household brands for marijuana users, and medical marijuana dispensaries and growers into overnight stars in cannabis culture, and now in the medical marijuana industry.

Until last year, Amsterdam had been home to the the only Cannabis Cup celebration every year since it was founded by Steven Hager in 1987.  Now, however, with cannabis culture exploding in the US with the emergence of medical marijuana and the onset of decriminalizing marijuana use, medical marijuana capitals of United States have become a clear choices to host the annual Cannabis Cup celebration.  Last years event in San Francisco California was the first year that the Cannabis Cup was held anywhere other than Amsterdam.  Colorado's booming medical marijuana market has received a lot of attention in the past year and apparently enough attention to attract the World's most prestigious cannabis celebration to host it's second U.S. cannabis festival in Colorado.

This year the Colorado will host the 2nd US Cannabis Cup.  The event will take place April 2nd and 3rd in Denver.  Prizes will be awarded for best marijuana strain, best marijuana edible, best hash, best smoking accessories from legal MMJ dispensaries in Colorado.

You do not need a medical marijuana license to attend the event.  However you do need a valid Colorado medical marijuana license to take part in any sampling of marijuana or cannabis infused products.  This year's event promises to be a unique celebration of the cannabis lifestyle with Colorado medical marijuana dispensaries and growers bringing their best to present to the public, event attendees and Cannabis Cup judges.

Where to Buy Recreational Marijuana | Colorado Retail Dispensaries

Colorado Recreational Marijuana Dispensaries As of January 1st, 2014, the sale of recreational marijuana to anyone 21 and above is legal in Colorado.  Now that recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado, a handful of medical marijuana (MMJ) dispensaries now sell recreational pot to Colorado residents that don't have a MMJ license (AKA Red Card).

 Even though it's legal under state law to buy recreational marijuana in Colorado without a MMJ card, a number of cities have voted to ban the sale of recreational marijuana. Below is a list of Colorado cities that have bans on recreational marijuana dispensaries.

Jack Herer Strain Review | Marijuana Strain Information

Jack Herer Cannabis Strain ReviewJack Herer strain, named in honor of pro-cannabis and hemp activist, and author of two books including The Emperor Wears No Clothes, which has since been used in several efforts to decriminalize the use of cannabis.

Jack Herer Strain is a sativa dominant hybrid Haze crossed with Red Skunk Strain.  The buds of Jack Herer marijuana are a distinct, light green tone.  The smell is one of a citrus haze coupled with a slight scent of the classic fresh cannabis skunk scent.  The buds themselves are fairly dense, thick nugs, that can easily be broken up with ones hands.  Not only did Jack Herer's dedication to promote pro-marijuana legislation earn him his own signature marijuana strain, but in 2003 he was inducted into the Counter Culture Hall of Fame at the 16th Annual High Times Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam.

What's The Difference Between F1, F2, and F3 Weed Strain Seeds?

Just as with common flowers or other household plants (roses, pea plants, etc...), Cannabis seed strains can be grown and crossbred. This is usually done for the purpose of developing new breeds with different characteristics such as the size of the plant, yield, taste, effect, bud to leaf ratio, or other specific traits that the grower desires. As this cross breeding continues, the plants end up forming different weed strain seeds, or generations. These are often described as being either F1, F2, or F3. In order to really make some informed seed purchase decisions it is very helpful to understand the differences between these various seed strains.




F1 Seeds: The First Breeding: An F1 seed variety is created by breeding together two pure strains. For example, a tall plant (represented with two dominant genes, AA) is bred with a small plant (represented by the two small recessive genes, aa). Since the resulting plants will each receive one gene from each parent, this will result in offs…
