I was just in Colorado and I was disappointed with the weed. I went to several dispensaries and all the weed was dry, nothing was really that dank. As such, even though there were some interesting strains they didn't get me that high. I was also disappointed that I couldn't find many of the traditional strains, ie blueberry, purp, white widow, jack herer, blue dream, presidential kush, cheese, etc that I'm used to. Everything was some trendy shit that I'm just not that into. I also saw this on one of the containers my weed came in: WTF is that? I swear the buds didn't smell like what I'm used to getting either....I swear I could smell some of those chemicals on them. For one strain I could definitely smell rosemary oil, WTF? Isn't one of the points of weed being better than cigarettes is that it isn't adulterated? The weed I get here in GA is top notch. Always fresh and dank, and I swear that fresh vs. dry on the same strain FRESH always gets me higher. There have been times my friends walk in the apartment with purp and I can smell it the moment they walk through the front door and my room is at the back of the apt. If the weed in CO were that fresh the dispensaries would reek like it but I couldn't smell that much even inside the places. I can also remember being in London (England) and taking cheese back on the tube and it reeking up the entire train car so dank weed is pretty prevalent on the black market... The edibles were a bit disappointing too. Everyone recommended only taking like 1 piece with 10 mg, or maybe 20-30 at most and you see news reports of people taking entire chocolate bars (100mg) and killing themselves or something? I couldn't feel anything unless I ate an entire bar. I wasted a lot of money on the edibles until I started eating 100mg+. The edibles I make in GA I typically use an entire ounce of vape waste per batch of brownies and you fucking TRIP off just a small piece. I don't eat edibles to be mellow, I eat them because they can be stronger than dabs or anything else. I went expecting weed utopia and I guess it was ok? If my connects ever dry up I could see moving there just to have guaranteed weed forever but I wouldn't call it ideal? I like having friends bring by fresh dank nugs. I could also see CO being cool for edibles because $25 for 1 dose (a whole choco bar) beats waiting weeks to make brownies, any Friday night I could just buy 1 and its straight. It reminded me of when I went to Amsterdam, but I liked the selection of strains better in Amsterdam, all the stuff I was used to so I could just go to town on all the strains I remembered. But yea, the weed there was slightly dry too. Because of this I'm not sure if legalization is a good thing. It corporatizes it and that never improves anything.
