where does the best weed come from

Overall, one thing that is really incredible about The Golden State is that the general attitude towards weed is positive; many people enjoy it and have for decades, so it is no surprise this area recently became legalized.

Washington State is home to numerous pioneers in the world of cannabis, including Northwest Cannabis Solutions, BMF Washington, Harmony Farms, Grow Op Farms, Spinning Heads, and so many others. The overall quality of weed in Washington is said to be quite phenomenal, but it is almost all indoor grown, making certain strain types more prevalent than others if they are locally raised.

Just like Colorado, Washington does not possess the right outdoor temperatures to support the cultivation of a multitude of different strains outdoors, unless you go over to Eastern Washington, where mentalities and attitudes towards cannabis are not very positive… Seattle primarily, where plenty of dank weed is cultivated, can be rather cold and humid, so indoor growing is prefered over outdoor. Additionally, legal weed is not such an old decision in Washington, so some people are still getting used to this change and do not possess a positive attitude yet towards the medicinal green.

In reality, this is not that easy of a question to answer, primarily because the marijuana front runners in the US have changed drastically in the past 10 years, especially as more and more states have begun cultivating their own herb, and people are really perfecting their skill sets. This shift in extraordinary growing practices is a result of the widespread legalization of recreational cannabis, particularly throughout the states that would be considered candidates for a list of “the best”.

The Emerald Triangle is made up of 3 counties in Northern California, including Humboldt County, Mendocino County and Trinity County. This is a region that is notorious for its top quality cannabis , and many individuals in this region are marijuana cultivators. Our research has exemplified that this area possibly possesses the best quality ganja, because not only is the practice of growing cannabis totally normal and widely accepted, it is essentially what fuels the economy of this region. Additionally, herb being supplied to dispensaries all over the US is derived from regions throughout the Emerald Triangle, which only adds to the concreteness of its top-shelf quality.

One aspect of Oregon cannabis that seems to set it above the rest is the affordability. Oregon, by far, has the greatest affordability of almost any other state, and for this reason you might even be able to purchase an out-of-this-world ounce for $200 or less. The price point alone might have you convinced that OR ganja is the best out there, but there is also some solid quality product being produced out of this forest-covered state.

In Southern Oregon especially, which is considered to be a pretty good place to grow, weed is being grown both indoors and outdoors, because the outside environment during growing season is superb in this region. It is a bit too cold during the growing season in Northern Oregon to have the same results, but Portland and the surrounding areas have perfected their indoor cultivation techniques, and they are stocking up dispensaries all over the US with some top-notch herb.

In recent years, the Netherlands has continued to hold its spot towards the top of the cannabis chain by producing unique takes on popular strains like Amnesia Haze and Hulkberry. They also host the annual Cannabis Cup that draws thousands of competitors and onlookers each year from all over the world. Combined with a welcoming environment, you’re guaranteed to find some good green in the Netherlands.

While they are new to the legal weed scene, Colombia is no stranger to cannabis cultivation. They were once one of the major suppliers of green in the heyday of Black Market cannabis, but have since changed their tune with the recent legalization of medical cannabis. They now welcome cannabis tourism to their postcard-perfect beaches, sky-high mountaintops, and bustling cities.

Perhaps best known as the birthplace of Bob Marley and the Rastafari lifestyle, Jamaica grows weed that is more than just plain old cannabis — it’s a spiritual experience. Revered as the “holy herb” by many, the cannabis here is meant to lead you to a deeper faith instead of just a recreational drug (but it’s fun to smoke too).

As cannabis legalization continues to stretch out into every corner of the globe, each nation is competing to produce the best flower out there — but who really has the highest quality buds?

Needless to say, weed aficionados from across the globe make the trek to the US to sample some of the best ganja the world has to offer.

As the most bio-diverse place on earth per square inch, it is no surprise that Colombia grows some of the best weed on the market today. Its rich soil and tropical climate, make this country the perfect place to grow some serious buds.

In addition to its religious roots, Jamaica has perfect year-round weather to support three full growing cycles of some of the finest weed around. Sign us up for a trip to their sandy beaches rife with the sticky icky.

There is change in the air these days. Well, maybe it’s not just change, but change that is taking the form of some pleasant smelling and distinct smoke. That’s right, throughout the United States, where carrying a small amount of pot could once get someone tossed in prison for decades, states are slowly allowing their citizens the herbal medicine (or pleasure) they want.

Whether you are a daily consumer who likes to get high early and have it last all day, or you are the type who smokes before bed time, or even the “every now and again” type, it’s a good time to be alive. Of course, this doesn’t apply to those who smoke because running from the cops is exciting (they exist). Even still though, times will be even better when the debate over pot is a thing of the past and governments have moved on to more pressing problems, like their own spending and their bureaucrats watching adult movies all day, every day. But that’s a story for another day. Back to marijuana, one of the most popular debates between stoners is where they can find the best green. I’ve always been a believer that when talking about pot, beer or women, the best one is the one currently nearby and cheap, but this is not the method of thinking for everyone. There are some strains of bud that produce a better high than others and the issue of smell, and how long the buzz lasts, are also criteria for what makes the best pot. Here is our list of countries who just get it right when it comes to marijuana.

10 Colombia

They have been known for years to produce some out of this world bud down under, but the 40% rumor from back in 2013 is still somewhat up in the air, as some in the United States have disputed the authenticity of such claims.

From the east coast to the west, there is a great deal of variation in Canadian weed, but for the best high, anything with B.C. in its name is a great bet. B.C. stands for British Columbia, which is a Canadian province, but for our purposes it is also Brilliant Chronic.

While many fans of Colombian Gold swear by its flavor and effects, growers trying to buy seeds in the United States should be wary, as quality is inconsistent.
