Skywalker OG Strain Review

[Skywalker x OG Kush][Indica] Usually with strain reviews I prefer to sit with the laptop in front of me, take a bong rip and write the post backwards from there. That process wasn’t really possible with Skywalker OG. I sat staring at my computer only able to take rudimentary notes on the way that the strain …

Moving Past the Dangers of Wax & Concentrates

Acapulco Gold Cannabis Strain Review

[Mexican Landrace Sativa] Smelling a strain is important. Whenever I had a patient at the dispensary that was unsure about a strain I would just tell them, “Your nose knows.” and I’d raise the jar to their face and have them choose only with the smell and not their rational thinking.

What Do I Do With My Stems?

I’ve always saved my stems. I don’t know why, it’s just something that I’ve always done. It is quite rare that I actually do anything with them. Once in college we filled a bottle of vodka slowly with our stems until 420 and then brought it to Hippy Hill to share. Aside from that one time, I …

Pineapple Express Cannabis Review

[Trainwreck x Hawaiian][Sativa Dominant Hybrid – About 70%] One of my most favorite faeries that I’ve met in my travels through various cannabis dispensaries liked to ask everyone what their spirit fruit was.

Phantom Cookies: Medical Cannabis Strain Review

[Granddaddy Purple x Cherry Pie] I really love this strain and covet it as a Sativa dominant counterpart to Girl Scout Cookies. There is a definitely buzzing about the brain but with some familiar Indica effects layered onto this unique and complex medication. Some strains have a specific way that they hit the mind in a physical …
