Tyson OG Cannabis Strain Review

Indica Cultivar, Product Review

[Mike Tyson x OG Kush] 90% Indica

Coming out of CA to AZ I am always surprised if I see something with an OG attached to it that I haven’t heard of yet. I guess I was sleeping because Tyson OG is right up my alley. I like to get it from the dispensary because it’s almost a full Indica which falls right into my wheel house and also because something about it makes it the perfect strain for cowboyfriend while he works all day with his arthritis.

For some patients this is a great sleep aide but I turn to other strains for that. The Mike Tyson back genetics is what provides the knock out Indica properties but in my opinion the OG Kush influence gives the strain a bit of an upswing which makes it a fantastic daytime pain relief strain and simultaneously the perfect strain for unwinding in the evening.

How Does It Hit The Senses?

The nuggets grow in a frosted light green hue with light brown hairs distributed throughout. Their structure should be conical and the buds will be tightly bound and dense. It definitely features that dense bud structure of OG Kush. Inhale the light smell of parmesan cheese, seriously, parmesan. I think it’s the combination of a deeply wooded skunk aroma lightly tangled with the scent of sweet sandal wood that make it smell cheesy. On inhalation, the woodsy flavors are highlighted along with a lingering sweetness.

What Are The Effects?

Immediately after inhalation Tyson OG hits the eyes first before slowly overtaking the mind, melting away any anxiety from the realm of conscious thought. Next you’ll feel the effects flow down through the neck and shoulders relieving any tense muscles that may exist in the body. Aches and pains will just dissolve with out a second thought. Let the mind wander away. In the long run the mind is floating both in a physical sense and in a meaning that it’s hard to stay on task at first. As soon as the mind decides to snap back into reality the ride is mellow with Tyson, you’ll be comfortable and relaxed. This is a great strain for the manual laborer that deals with arthritis (like cowboyfriend) or anyone who works a tense job and needs serious help to unwind after work.

WARNING: As always I’d recommend trying a strain at home in a comfortable setting when there isn’t anything left to do that day before ever trying it during the day or while trying to work. This will ensure that you understand how YOUR system responds to Tyson OG.

Blue OG Indica Cannabis Strain Review

Indica Cultivar, Product Review

[Blueberry x Blue Moonshine x OG Kush][70% Indica]

Now that I don’t work at the dispensary it’s been fun finding my flower from different sources. This Blue OG is a friends home grown that I was super impressed with. It is a strain that is once again picking up steam because it translates quite well into extractions. I love OG and am thankful for the comeback of Blue OG, because it smells and tastes amazing. It also delivers a pure, delicious Indica high that can mellow the most tightly strung of nerves.

How Does It Hit the Senses?

It is so wonderful to put your nose in a jar of Blue OG. The aroma hits you immediately and the flowers grow beautiful and blanketed with trichomes. Short, fat and squatty bud structure with light green calyxes that shine with an ethereal blue hue. Small light brown orange pistils are coated across each nug evenly. The aroma hits you first with a sweet blueberry then a sharp, pungent geranium. When you break the buds up a pure sticky sweet berry aroma fills the room.

What is the Effect?

Floral terpenes take immediate hold when you first inhale the smoke from Blue OG. Effects are first felt in the ocular system where the relaxation congregates. Slowly the seeping release of tension moves from the cranium and down the back to the rest of the body. Feel immediate pain relief as anxieties drift away from the slowing mind. Nestle into this effect as it wraps around you. You will get lethargic if you’re not a regular Indica smoker, so save this strain for evening times after your work is finished for the day. This is a great strain for appetite stimulation, you’ll get hungry due in part to the Blueberry genetic parentage. A great option for PMS and any mood swings or pain.

Use to Aide With: Anxiety, Insomnia, Mood Swings, Pain, Migraines and Headaches

Moby Dick: A Cannabis Strain Review

Hybrid Cultivar, Product 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 any ornery mood while also giving some pain relief with very little to no lethargic side effects. After running into my favorite lemon faery at the farmer’s market this morning I decided today’s the day to finally review her favorite strain.

Moby Dick first got attention when it won the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1995 on behalf of creator Dinafem Seeds. It was originally bred specifically for medicinal use and is a fabulous option for anyone undergoing chemotherapy since it has epic appetite stimulation.

How Does It Hit Your Senses?

This cannabis strain can range from a more loose bound bud to an extremely dense one depending on grow cycles. I guarantee that your grow will harvest at least one behemoth show bud. The nuggets are vibrantly light yellow green with deep hints of dark forest green sprinkled delicately throughout. Trichomes glitter all over and nugs are straight up dank. It will always hit your nostrils abruptly with a lemony pine scent that is unmistakable. The aroma finishes with a deep sandalwood for a very rounded smell scape. Your first hit will entirely retain all of the brightness that assaulted your senses when you smelled the strain, inhalation and exhalation are equal in bright lemon piney goodness. The flavor sends a richness throughout your sinus passages that is warm and inviting.

It is an intermediate strain to cultivate that takes about 10 weeks to flower. It grows well both in and outdoors but I’d recommended indoors as it requires specific lighting wattage. Test your pH twice daily if possible to avoid anything too high as it greatly effects these genetics. If you pay attention and treat her right, Moby is an extremely high yielder.

What Is The Effect?

For me Moby Dick takes immediate effect directly to my mind, I can actually feel pressure in my brain release in the first couple of moments after medicating. After the initial mental lift the release moves through the face to release eye and facial muscle tension. Slowly in the next five minutes you will feel the body pain and muscular tension slowly drip out of your system. I want to be clear about the special nature of this strain, it not only tests with the best of them in THC content but it also has an extremely high CBD level in comparison to almost every other sativa dominant strain. This combination of mentally uplifting euphoria (THC) and anxiety & pain relief (CBD) creates the perfect storm of happiness and relaxation. The coming hour after medicating with Moby Dick you will feel, as lemon faery puts it, like a cartoon in the most welcome way. You feel playful, joyful and most of all pain free.

Effects will take hold for about 2-5 hours. You will most certainly feel the hunger, just have some healthy snacks made and a big bottle of water near by. Moby awakens the tummy and can help to relieve any nausea; making it a great choice for anyone in need of help with their appetite. I also recommend this to any patient who has issues with mood imbalance, depression, anxiety or heavy stress. And I especially recommend it to all my ladies out there during their moon. It will make you stop hating everything for no reason, crying when you see things for no reason and basically all those ridiculous signs of PMS.. except the ones that compel you to eat a whole package of oreos.. it just helps that one out. It is possible you could feel drowsy about 4-6 hours after medicating, test for the first time in a safe zone in the afternoon as to not upset your sleeping cycle.

Use to Aide With: Depression, Anxiety, Nausea, Day-Time Pain, Anorexia, secondary effects of Chemotherapy, PMS

DJ Short's Flo Cannabis Strain Review

Product Review

[Purple Thai x Afghani][60% Sativa]

This strain was created by the master of Blueberry himself, DJ Short out of Colorado. Then it was shipped out to Amsterdam. The hybridization combines two absolutely classic strains for an uplifting, true hybrid. I was extremely excited to see this strain because I am a huge fan of DJ Short’s Blueberry. Flo delivers that soft and airy vibe of the Blueberry with an active and stimulated mind of the Purple Thai back genetics.

How Does It Hit The Senses?

You will see Flo buds grow in dense, light green hues with almost purple undertones. There are short fat orange hairs all throughout the flower. The smell hits you first with a sprig of citrus and ends with a bright earth pine, sort of like lemongrass sprouting from fresh soil. I found the Flo takes me a couple of hits to really ‘get there’, but it is a perfect strain for the medical cannabis beginner and will last about 1-2 hours. If you’re looking to grow this strain it will have about 60 day flowering and can be grown in or outdoor, but loves a greenhouse setting.

What is It’s Effect?

So this is a super functional high, so much so it can feel just plain normal for some. In the medical cannabis world that is a major thumbs up fact about a strain. As I hit this one it starts between my eyes and works its way back through my brain. An almost immediate body buzz emanates throughout your muscular system as you feel our cares float away. As most 60% Sativa hybrids go, it is very mentally active while still remaining a teensy bit dreamy in the mind. The body will experience slight relief form nausea and gastro intestinal issue. You may find yourself locked to the couch about 20 minutes in, but if your general demeanor is that of getting things done the Flo will be a nice avenue with which to do your errands.

Use This For Relief From: This strain can aid in the relief of stress, nausea, stomach pain and issue, and depression. As this is another hybrid it will help to balance those with adrenal issues caused by things such as PTSD.

Sour Kush AKA Headband

Product Review

[OG Kush x Sour Diesel][60% SATIVA]

If you haven’t noticed yet I’m not a huge fan of Sativa strains, they tend to trip me out in the realms of psychedelics like acid and mushrooms. Unfortunately that isn’t copacetic to my daily life, I generally like to get all mentally packed up before I take a trip if you pick up what I’m throwing down. So with that in mind my favorite Sativas live just on the border of 50/50 hybridization like this lovely classic, Sour Kush. My dispensary refers to it as Sour Kush but apparently it has the same genetics as Headband. The effects are similar and the genetics are as elusive, ranging across the board from full Sativa to full Indica in the realms of reviewers out there. I will let you guys know my exact experience from this particular version grown out of Flagstaff, AZ.

How Does It Hit Your Senses?

The buds grow in a beautiful dense, short and fat christmas trees. They vary in light green and light brown patching with a musky lemon scent that hits the nostril with an antiseptic/diesel aroma. Pack it up in the bong or pipe for a one bowl wonder, just a nice juicy hit and you will feel immediate effects. If you’re choosing a joint/blunt route take 1-3 hits for the same effect. The taste is like that of fresh lemon juice and turmeric, a sweet earth citrus. If growing this hybrid beauty expect a 9-10 week flowering time.

What are the Effects?

Effects started for me in the back of the brain, deep in the part of your head that connects to your spine. I felt rapid energy release into a silly but focused stimulation in my mind while releasing pain points in my body. This is one of those really silly strains, I found myself just huge smile laughing and focusing on the fun side of life like I did when I was a child. This hybrid zone (60% Sativa – 60% Indica) is my silly zone, I know that most times those strains will give me the familiar Sativa uplifting I need with out any psychedelia and anxiety included. Definitely consider this strain to relieve your stress, anxiety, migraines, headaches, PTSD, and some body pain. Also use this for adrenal balancing, if you’ve been in a very high stress environment or had a very traumatic experience this zone of hybrids will help to balance that adrenal imbalance you may have acquired.
