The people have spoken! Presenting The Cannabist People’s Choice Awards 2017.
We asked you to vote for your favorite cannabis consumables, people and places for 2017. As we’ve had a little excitement in the weed world in January (
looking at you, Jeff Sessions), it’s taken us a little longer than we expected to tally the votes, so we thank you for your patience.
But without further delay, here are the best strains, edibles and vapes, according to The Cannabist’s esteemed readers.

Sure, this sounds like another strain ripe for a lawsuit, but a cease and desist order won’t stop our readers from smoking it.
Good sativa high; easy to smoke
Great productive high. It never let me down!
This strain is surprisingly popular despite its branding.
Perfect day high, energizing but not jittery
It’s the most clear-headed and functional sativa I’ve found that can give me energy without making my mind race.

Energizing and clear-headed sativa

Three atomizers/coils to choose from, plus USB charging, make this a go-to personal vape for many readers.
Amazing taste and flavor. Functions perfectly.
Smooth smoking experience. Sleek design
Easy to use and super easy to clean
The atomizers and the three different heat settings make it super simple and efficient to use.

Wana’s fruit sour gummies (Vince Chandler, The Denver Post)
1. Wana Gummies
Colorado-based Wana brands came out on top. Did you catch our interview with Nancy Whiteman, co-founder of Wana on the Cannabist Show?
The effect is amazing
The only edible I like to eat before a particularly difficult workout.
Because they are awesome?
They taste just like each flavor they do and they’re the perfect for dosing
They are soft and don’t stick to my teeth
Consistently dosed, the flavors are amazing, can’t taste any hash. Heck yeah.
The 10/10 THC/CBD effect is like no other edible I have eaten. Very comfortable.
Gluten free and vegan ingredients, yummy, sweet and sour deliciousness
They make the music sound awesome
Yummy flavor. Good elevation. Consistent.
Flavor is 100 so is the high
