Cherry Pie Cannabis Strain to Relieve Stress & Anxiety

[Durban Poison x Grand Daddy Purple][60% Indica] Sometimes my first experience with a strain is in back genetics, that is how I first met Cherry Pie. I noticed that the strain was a back genetic in Girl Scout Cookies which I absolutely love. So when I finally had the opportunity to medicate with Cherry Pie herself I was so […]

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 […]

Gorilla Glue for Deep Introspection

[80% Sativa][Sour Dubb x Chem Sister] Once in awhile a strain comes around that absolutely blows my mind, and trust me after 5 years working in the medical cannabis industry this is truly rare. Joesy Whales accidentally created this strain when a Sour Dubb plant got a little to handsy with Chem Sister in his grow […]

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 […]

It is such a great choice for pain relief and relaxation. Any stress case can appreciate this amazing hybrid strain for it’s properties of release. It […]

Pineapple Queen: Cannabis Strain Review

[Shimla x Pineapple][65% Indica] We play a fun game at the dispensary that I work for where we like to ask ‘What is your spirit fruit?’. It all stems from the lovely lemon faery that I mentioned in my review of Moby Dick. Basically it’s like a spirit animal, but a fruit! Well I tell […]

Moby Dick: A Cannabis Strain Review

[Haze x White Widow][65% Sativa][18.2% THC & 3.5% CBD] I’ve been meaning to write this review for awhile now, mostly because this strain is so absolutely wonderful for almost EVERYONE. Not only have boyfriend and I play wrestled for almost an hour like joyous little kids after medicating with this strain, but it can uplift […]
