What State Has The Best Marijuana?


jack the ripper strainI recently posted a question on my Facebook page, ‘what state has the best marijuana?’ As I expected, there were a lot of comments, and they seem to keep coming in. It is a question that can be debated forever with virtually no chance of everyone reaching a consensus. People love to brag about their state’s marijuana quality, especially out West. I know we have a lot of pride in our marijuana here in Oregon.

In the 90’s I purchased a lot of marijuana from Washington State, and of course from Oregon. That was back when most of the growers I knew grew for quality, not quantity. That has changed a bit with a lot of mass produced marijuana flooding the market in the Pacific Northwest and beyond, as most growers would rather have a ton of decent marijuana versus a pound of the finest marijuana it seems like. However, there are still some supreme nuggets from the Pacific Northwest if you know where to look.

I have been to the Cannabis Cups in Denver a couple of times, and the Cups in California, and was lucky enough to receive samples of the top entries. I will say, they were very, very good. But I was happier to get home to my stash in Oregon, for what it’s worth. There’s just something about the Jack the Ripper strain via Southern Oregon that I find irresistible. Oregon is home to Subcool and TGA Genetics, and home to legendary dab maker Ganja Jon, and countless other world class marijuana geniuses. I always point out that there is a reason that Jack Herer called Oregon his home.

With that being said, I obviously haven’t smoked all the marijuana everywhere, so maybe I am just having a classic case of hometown pride! So I put the question out to TWB readers – what state has the best marijuana? And  why? It can be flower or concentrates. Include strain names if you would like.

  1. He ain’t the only one selling weed, plus the weather for marijuana growing is way better down here it’s always raining up north. Maybe in the lame ass farms grow good weed just maybe

  4. Fuck southern California shit weed its all about norcal outdoor grown fuck your shitty southern cal weed you guys get all your good outdoor shit from us lmao ??

  5. I’ve always wanted to visit north Carolina to sample their strains.. heard it’s the best

    I imagine you can get your hands on fire in most California cities north or south. I like many others prefer the Norcal scene.

    Lol NorCal… Fuck Northern California.. Southern California has California’s best pot brooooo

    Being from Sacramento California aka a NorCal native makes my decision seem obvious. However I have spent months with family in both southern and northern Oregon. I honestly dont have a single fav. My number one is both Cali&Ore. I’m sure Wash and Co have some rope as well as the rest of Merica. At the end of the day the west is the Og of herb in cost, availabiltity and overallfire with the east left in awe.

  9. I flew over Colorado and thought it VERY nice. Got my gals almost dry. The one whose pic I posted I dried really fast ’cause I was worried ’bout mold then had it tested. A little over 161/2 thc. The other 19 grew like regular king’s kush and the test on them should be ’round 19% but won’t be ready for ‘nuther two weeks. Sorry Ashle’ I don’t have any extra “units” but plenty frosty smoke if you get to Northern CA. I live up by Oregon. Though my gals all got very large (from being in the ground a YEAR) it was not worth the extra work and expense to take them clear through last winter so imma start them in April or May next year. Have been doing this harvest all by myself so busy day and night. For another month.

    I have heard the best weed is BC weed. Best I ever had I grew in Seattle.

  10. Where is the best place to relocate Colorado or California? I drive trucks I’m from south ga, tired of a lot of racism. Criminal/driving record is clean! I just would love to move away, like mom tells me move where it’s legal. Dad always telling me stop being a mama boy get the titty out your mouth. I want to move where I could buy from any1 that grows indoor and me buy whole sale 2-3units?

  11. This is what I’ve got in the ground in Northern CA. Northern. That is, 30 miles south of the Oregon border County of Siskiyou. Gonna get cold so harvest in just a few days.

  12. Fantastic! I happen to have a few planted sideways now but did not know why it was recommended. Just did it ’cause I got lonely right after finishing last years’ harvest and, as stated, started my (78) little gals outside after sprouting inside but in the back COLD room, on DEC 7th. The sideways gals did not get as big but the calyxs are all huge; like tops. Thanks. I have a theory that, as my gals are almost in suspended animation at 3/4 clear, the THC could be fuller as they go all milky, hopefully, by the next full moon.

  13. You could of had 3 harvest by that time. Yes your right weed can do what ever you want with in the vegetative part. Once you start budding it you got x amount of time till it’s ready. It funny my buddy grow blueberry and strawberry cough in Humboldt. Dude grows his plants sideways . they grow to be 30 feet long and because he grows it sideways all The buds are head buds.

  14. Weed does whatever you tell it to if you have the write equipment. I “planted them” outdoors with lights DEC. 7th last year. If anythink the opinion could be “you planted them way too” early. I did. Worked harder than I needed to ’cause I have not gained that much over waiting ’til, say, May to get started. They are hecka juicy and very big.

  15. Jesus Christ you left them sit for like waaaaaaaaaay toooooooo long. I honestly don’t believe you because after a certain point The plants turn into hermaphadites and they stop producing thc like 2 weeks after their peek
