Pretty much, every stoner has a preference in what weed they smoke. The preference is not only based on the strain of marijuana but more importantly where and in what climate the weed was grown.
For years smokers have argued whether Arizona weed which is grown in dry desert conditions is better than Jamaican weed which is grown in tropical weather where there is more moisture.
Although more people claim that drier climate marijuana is better than tropical weather marijuana; Jamaican weed has consistently beat Arizona weed in blind smoke tests.
Jamaican marijuana is stronger than Arizona marijuana, so right away it had a big advantage in a smoke test. Jamaican weed also carries a special Caribbean flavor much the same way that food does. A ripe banana grown in Jamaica is way more delicious than a ripe banana grown anywhere in the United States. Coffee grown in the Blue Mountains in Jamaica is stronger and more flavorful than coffee grown in America. The same is true for marijuana. If it is grown form the earth, chances are the one from Jamaica will be better.
Famous country singer, Willie Nelson, told 18 Karat Reggae at the 2018 High Times Marijuana expo that “Jamaican marijuana definitely gives you a higher but more mellow high than the marijuana that is grown in Arizona.”
Arizona weed or Jamaican weed? With the promotion of Arizona weed by Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa and other American celebrities, many stoners have taken it for granted that it is the best weed. However, almost every reggae artist along with pop diva Rihanna have all said they preferred Jamaican weed. Because of this there continues to be a tight race on which brand of weed is actually better.
Last year a poll was taken which clearly showed a definite preference for Jamaican weed over Arizona weed. During a blind smoke test, stoners were given a joint of Jamaican weed and another joint of Arizona weed, and asked which one they preferred; 6 times out of ten, the stoner would choose the Jamaican weed. So the Jamaican weed seems to be leading the race by a very small margin but as more states in the U.S. legalizes marijuana, things could change.
Although Jamaican weed may beat Arizona weed in quality, Arizona weed wins in quantity and is consumed way more people. Jamaica is a small island and does not have the land space to cultivate the volume of marijuana that Arizona does.
