The Greatest Strains on the Bay Space Hashish Cup



The San Francisco version of the Excessive Occasions Hashish Cup came about this previous weekend, and after judging full solar flowers and pre-rolls the week earlier than, Hashish Now Senior Employees Author Jimi Devine checked out each jar price smelling. Here’s a full rundown of one of the best genetics grown to their full potential in SF this previous weekend.

The birthplace of medical marijuana doesn’t slouch with regards to having one of the best pot doable on any given day. As a result of it’s the closest city middle to the ancestral homeland of one of the best marijuana in America (the Emerald Triangle), a few of the greatest cultivators on the earth ply their commerce on the shores of the San Francisco Bay Space. When the time comes for the locals to point out their prime phenotypes of the second grown to one of the best of their skill, it’s fairly thrilling stuff.

As all the time, I hit each sales space and checked out their spreads on the Excessive Occasions Hashish Cup in San Francisco’s legendary Cow Palace. The entire cultivators and cubicles on this assortment had zero trash on their desk. If I approached a sales space and bought the slightest trace of poor effort in post-production, I moved on to the following. Maybe I missed one thing good, however the individuals who develop one of the best pot on the earth couldn’t even fathom placing that grassy-smelling John Deere Garden Mower Clippings Kush on their desk. Nonetheless, total, I used to be impressed with the exhibiting. Right here is our rundown on probably the most flame strains on the 2019 Hashish Cup in San Francisco.

Diamond Again Genetics — Granpa’s This Is The Sh*t

Once I went by means of my first go of judging the sungrown entries simply occurring seems, I used to be struck at how completely beautiful this pressure appeared. (After all, on the time I didn’t know what pressure it was, it was merely labelled Full Sungrown Entry 8.) Amongst some choices that appeared somewhat dated from final season, this pressure had a improbable visible. The nostril took somewhat coercing to get out, so it wasn’t a pure jar jumper. However as soon as I cracked right into a nug, my nostrils had been attacked with a sensory overload giving me flashbacks to one of the best OG Kush experiences of my life. I known as it the winner even because it was the primary jar I opened, and I used to be right.

Str8organics — Mendo Breath

The crew at Str8organics have a big selection of flamage, and whereas lots of their strains could also be a bit extra unique or unique than the Mendo Breath, I frequently discover myself going again to it. As I advised the pressure’s breeders at Gage Inexperienced Group after I interviewed them final yr, my absolute favourite rendition of their now uber-popular pressure is definitely the sunshine deprivation-grown model coming from Str8organics. It’s principally nearly as good as 92% of the indoor Mendo Breath you’re going to see, with out all of the emotional baggage of a carbon footprint.

C.R.A.F.T. — Cherry Punch

As you understand, I like Cherry Punch. After we named it on our Harvest Hype pressure checklist final harvest season, it went on to a podium spot at The Emerald Cup a few months later. Whereas C.R.A.F.T. made it to the rostrum 4 occasions this weekend on the Bay Space Hashish Cup, together with taking house the Indica Cup, shockingly, not one of the accolades had been for his or her Cherry Punch. Make no mistake about it, till confirmed in any other case, C.R.A.F.T. has one of the best lower of Cherry Punch on the planet. They beforehand put out a small batch final fall, and it’s now in full manufacturing. Folks spent a reasonably penny on Cherry Punch seeds once they purchased the from Symbiotic Genetics at California’s first authorized adult-use Hashish Cup, which led to some less-than-perfect phenos getting out there, as a result of individuals merely couldn’t afford to lose the entire pack. The C.R.A.F.T. phenotype is like Brad Pitt’s character in “World Struggle Z” in comparison with all these different cuts: It can by no means be contaminated with the illness of merely being described as “above common.”

Sovereign — Blueberry Muffin and XXX

The parents at Sovereign additionally discovered themselves on the rostrum 4 occasions this weekend, together with scoring each first and second place within the infused merchandise class. However what took our breath away was Sovereign’s flowers, notably their XXX and Blueberry Muffin strains. Whereas neither discovered their method to the rostrum, they each had been one thing particular.

Seven Leaves — BonBon, Biscotti, and Vovo

Seven Leaves didn’t journey gentle to the Bay Space. The Sacramento-based cultivators introduced a beautiful unfold that included BonBon, Biscotti and Vovo. The BonBon was a pleasant Gushers phenotype, whereas the Biscotti pairs Gelato #25 and South Florida OG and the Vovo is a wild GG4 cross named in a fashion to stop future litigation with adhesive corporations. All had been flame! Nonetheless, if somebody gave me a ticket for a free eighth and I needed to decide certainly one of these three strains, I’d decide the Vovo.

Wonderbrett — OZK

Clearly, an OG crossed with Zkittlez goes to be banging, and — exterior the non-public assortment of Brandon from third Era Household, who bred the OZK from Zkittlez and OG Eddy — it’s powerful to think about anybody having a greater model than Wonderbrett. We’re anticipating a variety of OZK within the not-too-distant future, so don’t be shocked if it makes the Harvest Hype checklist this yr, as enthusiasm across the pressure continues to percolate.

3C Farms — Sasquatch Sap, Lime Sherbert and Membership 33 OG

With a lineage tracing again to the famed Josh D lower of OG Kush, 3C Farms has been recognized for producing absolutely the warmth for years. You might do not forget that in 2017, their Sasquatch Sap positioned second in the mini cannabis competitors we held on the Nationwide Hashish Trade Affiliation’s annual convention in Oakland. We love the Sasquatch Sap, however it’s onerous to rank it above the Lime Sherbert and Membership 33 OG. The Lime Sherbert is sort of a citrus smoothie with gas notes, whereas the Membership 33 OG is quintessential SoCal OG Kush grown to peak efficiency.
