While there are those places that specialize in pot that will take you to another planet, Jamaica is the place to go if you want a simple, easy going, delightful high, with amazing tasting weed. While the technology and methods that can lead to these powerful strains are available, Jamaican herb is generally produced without these; leading to a natural taste (in a good way) with a pleasant high that will make you forget your troubles, mon.
For those who thought that Borat was the only thing Kazakhstan is known for, they also produce great weed and a great deal of it. the two actually go nicely hand in hand. It is one of the few places thought to be the first in which cannabis was first harvested for use by people.
Mexico is one of those places that produces great weed but we really don’t encourage anyone to go there; it’s in the middle of one of the ugliest drug wars the world has ever seen. There was a time when Mexican weed was considered some of the best in the world, but legalization in the United States has hit the Mexican weed business hard, as has the drug war, which has nearly destroyed the quality aspect of that industry.
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.
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.
There are a few reasons for this new phenomenon, ranging from a decreased belief in the drug war (losing cause that wastes a laughable amount of money) to the belief that smoking marijuana actually produces no victims and therefore should not be a crime, building off the argument that it is no responsibility of any government to dictate what free citizens put into their bodies.
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.
Anyways, let’s get into it and see where people grow the most high-quality buds.
The cannabis plant is well-loved and appreciated all around the world, but some countries seem to excel at cannabis cultivation more than others. This can be due to many reasons, but it mostly revolves around the climate and culture, as marijuana has been a part of some cultures for centuries. Others have caught up over time and created new marijuana strains on their own, and with that, they’ve taken the game to the next level.
The well-known Emerald Triangle is probably the largest marijuana-producing region in the US. Cultivators have been growing cannabis there since the Summer of Love in the 1960s. The average weed quality in California isn’t just average. You’ll rarely find a reggie as most of the stash sold at local dispensaries is top-shelf weed. OG Kush and Granddaddy Purple are some of the strains that California has made popular.
However, due to the climate, most of the marijuana strains you can find there are grown indoors, which also means that some strains are more prevalent than others. For example, in the Seattle area, Indica strains and some hybrids with short flowering time are more commonly grown due to the frequent rainfall and lack of abundant sunshine.
