Always one of my favourite parts of any blind cannabis contest, guessing the cultivar or flower.
I find it difficult to do, especially if I have no previous experience with the grower or flower. I find myself guessing what I know, and not necessarily taking any wild guesses.
We’re using the TCLEWSI data here. We asked all the judges to guess what cultivar they were evaluating.
We got about 170 responses in total, and people took a guess at what they were smoking about half the time, making for about 80 responses.
You’ll see, familiarity seems to go a long way. The cultivars that yielded the most guesses, correct or otherwise, were also gifted to some members of the group by Squid Pants.
First let’s look at what people guessed, or what they thought they were smoking. I left everything in here; sarcastic answers, and some that were just punctuation.
Next we’ll look at the amount of guesses yielded for each of the entries, or which entries people felt comfortable guessing on.
I’ve grouped the variants above by common text, and shown those grouped values as one colour below. I’ve also filtered out null values, or people that didn’t make a guess. Check out Landrace Thai and Remo Chemo, both with 4 and 3 judges (respective) guessing the same on both.
Next we’re looking at the percent of judges that made a guess by the guess that was made. And I’ve grouped similar values as per above, but nulls are back in.
First is Blue Dream, a very popular cultivar and one I find myself guessing. Two people guessed correct. One had Bubble Gum and another came up with Grape Ape, I’d give them credit for being in the same ballpark.
