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. Acapulco Gold is one of those …

The Origins of Carajuana

I’ve been writing on this blog for awhile and it was all under the assumption that I was giving people instruction on how to utilize cannabis as a medicine. But recently it was called to my attention that not everyone automatically assumes that’s the case. In honor of 420 I thought that I would share with …

Partners in Healing: Massage + Cannabis

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.

Cannabis & Yoga: A Match Made in Heaven

There is a longstanding tradition of assuming that stoners are lazy, fat, and have a bag of Cheetos permanently attached to their hand. But this isn’t the case… all the time. There was actually a study done at the University of Nebraska that showed pot smokers to have a smaller waist circumference than those who have never …

4 Ways to Use Wax as a Beginner

The industry has been moving quickly since wax hit the scene. We used to call it Super Melt hash at the dispensary until it became all the rage a year or so later. Personally, I’m a bubble hash girl. I LOVE IT. As everyone stopped making bubble hash in CA and started making wax I was …

Lavender Cannabis Strain Review

[Super Skunk x Big Skunk Korean x Afghani Hawaiian] Like most of my most favorite strains, it is so dang hard to find Lavender in a well grown, not genetically bred bud.
