Banana Kush (Indica)
With genetics like Banana and the enormously legendary OG Kush, this strain is sure to be potent. With a THC content between 18% and 20%, Banana Kush not only packs a serious punch, but is arguably the best tasting California cannabis available. It is a favorite among dispensaries mostly in Southern California, but has recently expanded to be found in dispensaries throughout the state. This bud is one of those strains that tastes exactly how it smells, particularly when vaporized.

Colorado rejects medical marijuana use for PTSD
Citing scant research, Colorado health officials voted Wednesday against adding post-traumatic stress disorder to the list of ailments eligible for treatment with medical marijuana.
The 6-2 vote came despite a recommendation from the Colorado Chief Medical Officer and a panel of physicians to make PTSD the first condition added to Colorado's medical pot eligibility list in 15 years. Board members said they weren't swayed by the recommendation because studies on using pot for PTSD are lacking.
"We can't have physicians counseling people in favor of it because we don't have data to show it's correct," said Jill Hunsaker-Ryan, one of the board members who voted no.
The vote was the third time the board has rejected petitions to add PTSD to the list. About five dozen PTSD sufferers attended the hearing, some loudly jeering. A few were asked to leave.
"They just told every patient here, 'We don't care about you,'" said patient advocate Teri Robnett after the vote.
Colorado allows adults over 21 to buy recreational pot, with no doctor's recommendation needed. But medical pot is taxed at 2.9 percent, compared to at least 19 percent for recreational pot.
