A Steamboat Springs medical marijuana dispensary laid claim over the weekend to having the best strain of medical marijuana in the state. "Kandy Kush," a specialty hybrid strain of marijuana grown by Rocky Mountain Remedies in Steamboat beat out 140 contestants at the inaugural Western Slope Cannabis Crown in Aspen.
Kevin Fisher, owner of Rocky Mountain Remedies, explained to the Steamboat Pilot that Kandy Kush is a hybrid between 4 strains of marijuana, and--unlike many hybrid strains--has a classic marijuana flavor.
The Western Slope Cannabis Crown, organized by NugSource and Alternative Medical Solutions magazines, was conceived as a Colorado version of the world-famous Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. The two-day event brought thousands of growers, providers, patients, scientists, doctors and lawyers to Aspen to promote the industry and discuss marijuana.
