Pineapple Express Cannabis Review

Hybrid Cultivar, Product Review, Sativa Cultivar

[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. My immediate answer was that I am a pineapple, which is only partially nailed down by my love for all strains pineapple. Pineapple Express obviously became a household name after the feature film came out, but I feel like that took away from the epic value of the strain medicinally. The strong effects combine those found in both Indica and Sativa strains to weave an intricate cornucopia of healing.

How Does It Hit the Senses? Obviously there is a deliciously rich pineapple aroma that emanates from each bud. This smell becomes more complex with the layered bouquet of sweet, tropical lemon geranium with the lightest hint of vanilla almond. The dense bud structure is a bit like a fat pine tree, with a tip at the end of each bud and a thick solid base. Each bud will appear in an almost lime green that is delicately sprinkled with dark green leaves. Pistils are a goldenrod orange and grow in a uniform fashion throughout the entire nug. As far as taste goes the vapor or smoke will be all pineapple, all the time. The musky lemon flavor of train wreck only heightens the pineapple flavor from the Hawaiian genetics.

What are the Effects? Effects take their full hold in about 5-10 minutes and they do so with almost a cyclone of combined relaxation and stimulation in the mind. Feel the temples loosen and stress melt away while also titillating and invigorating the mind to a place of motivation. Tense muscles will relax familiar with the feeling of an Indica but don’t expect couch lock, munchies or de-motivating side effects. This is a Sativa that just so happens to melt away tension and stress like nobody’s business. Pineapple Express is perfect for the cannabis patient looking for daytime pain relief and anyone that is vulnerable to de-motivation when medicating.

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.

Tyson OG.jpg

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.

Top 10 Indica Strains for Insomnia

Indica Cultivar

One of the most common problems that can make anyone’s day just crap is a poor night’s sleep. Cannabis is not only helpful for inducing sleep, it also helps to keep you asleep all night. Smoking and vaporizing can be a great option for getting a nice high to get a good night of rest. But I’d recommend edibles for getting a long lasting effect suitable for sleeping. These strains are my most favorite for night time; they’ll relax, relieve pain and help work as a sleep aid.

  1. Blueberry [Purple Thai x Afghani]

Do you have pure Blueberry? Call me. Seriously, it’s so hard to find regular old Blueberry cannabis that isn’t crossed with anything. Blueberry nuggets create more of a bulbous bud structure with a blueberry patchouli aroma. It is one of the strains that commonly has high CBD quantities. Generally there won’t be immensely high amounts of THC so the effects will be mellow and relaxing. Feel gently lulled to sleep by Blueberry and also feel immense relief from aches and pains.

2. Grand Daddy Purple [Purple Urkle x Big Bud]

One the purple heavy hitters, GDP is a classic that I grab whenever I find it at a dispensary. It is one of those Indica strains that just slaps you right in the face. GDP smells sweet and earthy, like most wonderful indica strains, and has a dark purple dark green hue with a bulbous, pine tree bud structure. Take a hit and then immediately feel relief from pain, stress and a need to go to sleep. This is a great one for the anxious mind that keeps you up at night because it hits you with a freight train of tired moments after inhalation. Find an edible with this strain and get ready for the most intense sleep of your life.

3. Northern Lights #5 [Afghani Indica x Thai Sativa]

This is another of those comfortable, relaxing Indica strains that slowly lulls you to sleep after relieving any stress, pain or discomfort. I love this strain because it calmly pushes you into a river of tired before bed. It runs through the body with a light, airy sense of pain relief that eventually reaches the brain. The nugs will usually be bright green, dripping in trichomes and ball-like fat, dense structure.

4. Romulan [North American Sativa x White Rhino]

I’ll preface this saying that this is a favorite to have on shelves as a budtender. Not just because it is a classic Indica for pain relief and sleepiness but also because it helps you spot all the Trekkies in the crowd. Pronunciation is key. Pine entwines with sweet earth to create a scent that is distinct and pungent, buds will be light green fat spears with long, dark brown pistils. This is another lull comfortably to sleep options. It gives you a little kick in the rear but is still a mellower option in comparison to GDP and Black Diamond.

5. Black Diamond [Blackberry x Diamond Kush]

The teeny tiny percentage of Sativa in this strain shoots you up into the air upon first inhalation. It almost tricks you into thinking that you’re awake, which is why I wouldn’t recommend this strain for the severely anxious before bed. The aroma that the nugs emit is pure blackberry, sweet and bright. They grow in a dark purple and kelly green hue with light orange pistils littering the little pine trees. Effects will shoot you to the moon making you feel on top of the world, this is partially due to the amazing pain relief that the strain provides. You could get immensely hungry and then all of a sudden BOOM you’re tired, and asleep. Depending on the batch of bud, you could just pass out like a narcoleptic person when smoking Black Diamond.

6. Blackberry Kush [Blueberry x Afghani]

Enjoy the most melty, delicious pain relief with just one inhalation of Blackberry Kush. A lot like Black Diamond, a child of this beautiful mother, the smell of these nuggets is sweet, delightful blackberry. They grow in fat, purple balls that are so dense you’ll want a grinder. You’ll feel any pent up anxiety or deep seeded stress release and the tension in joints and muscles will relax; everything is hunky dory after some BBK. All of these things (pain, anxiety, stress) can lead to insomnia, Blackberry Kush can help solve that problem.

7. Afgoo

When I first got my medical cannabis card in 2009 in San Francisco I walked straight to the original Green Room and picked up some Afgoo. It will always sit so comfortably in my heart for this reason. Combining an earthy Afghani with sweet strawberry cedar wood of Goo; Afgoo is unmatchable for pain relief combining with relaxation. What better to lead to a good night’s sleep. The buds will be light brown/green and spear like with a smell that is both pungent earth and sweet as sugar.

8. Holy Grail Kush

This former Cannabis Cup winner can do it for me every time. I love the pain relief provided by Holy Grail, and the intensity of the effects given combined with the Kosher Kush parentage can have the same sleep inducing properties as GDP. That’s right, it’ll punch you right in the face! Sorry I just love that analogy. The buds smell like a lemony pile of delightful dirt and grow in fat balls with little points in a light greenish brown dense chunky nug. True effects are felt immediately, making this a wonderful option for the intensely anxious cannabis medicator.

9. Purple Kush [Hindu Kush x Purple Afghani]

If you can get your hands on true Purple Kush then you’re in for a delightful, relaxed evening. I’ve seen this strain run anywhere from a light purple hue with a vibrant green undertone to a dark purple hue that was so covered with trichomes that the spear shaped nuggets almost shone white. The pleasant aroma emits a rich cocoa and deep blackberry. Effects are relaxing and comfortable. There are no spikes in energy or intense ups and downs before the inevitable faceplant. This Indica strain is like snuggling in a warm blanket that gently lulls you to sleep. It is a great option for the anxious insomniac with a spiraling mind that keeps them awake.

10. Bubba Kush [OG Kush x Maybe Northern Lights #5]

Ooooh yum Bubba Kush, it is one of the most melty and comfortable Indica strains. It can relax the most tense of muscles which can really help when attempting to get some shut eye. Generally I’ve seen this bud with a structure like little bowling balls, not too dense but definitely not loose. The aroma is of deep, rich soil with sweet plum undertones. Taste resembles the smell pretty closely. Bubba Kush is bound to create a lethargic effect but beware calorie counters, you will probably get the munchies.

Get The Most of Your Medical Marijuana Edibles

Edibles, Product Review

One of the most common things that I heard at the dispensary is that edibles are ‘too intense’ for a patient. It was always so upsetting because I knew that somewhere down the line someone irresponsibly gave this person an edible and their experience was anywhere from subpar to traumatizing. There are some easy ways to manipulate your edible to make it perfectly catered to your own medical needs. Below I’ve listed 3 ways to make sure that you are in control of your cannabis edibles. Eventually you’ll know the exact measurements that your body requires to become medicated but not comatose or tripping face.

How to Pick Your Edibles

Before you walk out of the dispensary with a jam packed brownie or ice cold canna-tea in your hands you should assess your personal needs. If you are a sensitive patient that needs very little cannabis to feel medicated then get an edible that only has 1 gram or below of medical marijuana. This way you won’t even have the option to overdose. Always take your metabolism into account, if you have a fast moving metabolism or perhaps your a vata ayurvedically, then you might not get all of the effects that you’re looking for depending on what an edible is made from. If you don’t feel effects easily then try something that is liquid, these tend to seep in better and more quickly.

Also be sure to understand the difference between indica and sativa. A sativa edible used properly can work as an anti-depressant and use incorrectly it can feel like you just dropped acid.  An indica will work to relax and release pain if dosed correctly but when overdosing it will work as a sleeping pill. Identify what effect you are looking for before even venturing down the road of what taste you’d like.

Micro Dose

My most favorite thing in the world to do with edibles is micro dose. I love an edible effect because it is more intertwined with the body than smoking, which is why I think that edibles relieve my pain more effectively. The problem is that I still have to function during the day so I can’t eat my usual 0.25 gram dose during the day when my pain is really intense. This is where micro dosing comes in. I eat teeny tiny bits of a Ganja Goo or gummy candies and my pain melts away but leaves my mind completely active. This is the best advice that I have for anyone.

If you eventually want to eat more and lose your mind a big, then I’d recommend still micro dosing just for the first shot at a specific edible. I would advise that you eat a tiny bite and then focus on your body. If you fully understand that at a micro level what this edible will do to your body and mind it will make an accidental over medicating experience a lot less terrifying. If you eat too much but are hyper conscious of the effects then you’ll understand that what is happening is just a quantified level of what you’re hyper familiar with.

Wait Patiently

The last and most important tip is to always wait 45 minutes to 1.5 hours before re-dosing. Some edibles can be felt like a spike while some are a small hill, by this I mean that some will take only 20 minutes to take hold and some edibles take a full 1.5 hours to reveal their effects. It just depends on the edible ingredients, strain used and the person eating them. Before you’ve decided that you need more medicine make sure it has been a full hour and a half since you still may be coming into the full effects. If you’re worried about the edibles working then eat some papaya or another fruit that’s heavy in the terpene myrcene which actually helps terpenes and cannabinoids do their jobs in the body.

 

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.

Motavation: The Indica Strain that Does Anything But Motivate

Indica Cultivar, Product Review

[Sensi Star x Warlock][90% Indica]

Although pain relief is generally my go-to effect when choosing a cannabis strain, sometimes I like to delve into the other delightful Indica effects. When it comes to Motivation I do get some warm, comfortable pain relief but the main vein of the feelings from this one are fun, silly and tiring.

This is definitely not a beginner strain for daytime medicating, if you’re new to Indicas or cannabis it will surely make you drowsy and inhibit your ability to get work done. This is a house strain at High Mountain Health in Flagstaff, Arizona and is a classic strain in the entire cannabis community.

How Does It Hit The Senses?

First off, when you lay your eyes upon Motavation you’ll agree that this is one of the densest buds across the board. It forms in long, bulbous rocks that are equally as round as they are long. The color is a dark forest green, sometimes I swear that I see a black sheen to the bud sometimes from small spots of a deep purple. Use a grinder when breaking these up, you’ll get way more out of your stash than breaking it up with your fingers. The smell is rich in saffron with a deep black pepper undertone. Some different batches have a back drop of citrus making them a more bergamot scent with that same black pepper finish.

What is the Effect?

Just like a lot of beloved Indica strains, this one begins with a mellowing pain relief that first travels gently down the spine. I like to describe this one as a three part stone. First you feel your body relax and relieve any stress which induces phase one; open mouthed laughing. You’ll feel uplifted and relaxed simultaneously which is just downright pleasant. This cocktail of emotions may give some minds anxiety, ride it out because that will pass. Next you’ll feel an immense appetite Augustus Glutestimulation that can be described as insatiable. Seriously, I just dig through the refrigerator sometimes and then realize that I’m not hungry after some rifling. After either your food coma or the couch lock kicks in, you’ll experience immense lethargy. Eyelids will begin to get quite heavy and a relaxation will take over all of the other effects that have been happening. This is warm blanket phase, or phase three. At this point you’ll feel ready to go to sleep despite insomnia, active mind or anxiety. If this still doesn’t cure your insomnia I’d recommend adding some Indica bubble hash or switching to wax pens or dabbing in the evening.

Durban Poison: Cannabis Strain Review

Product Review, Sativa Cultivar

[South African Land Race Strain][100% Sativa]

The first cannabis dispensaries that I worked for in San Francisco, Medithrive and then Bloom Room SF, had Durban Poison available as a regular house strain. At the time I didn’t realize what a commodity I had at my fingertips. You see, Durban Poison is a very sought after strain and many growers will receive what they think are Durban clones or seeds that only turn out to be ‘Urban Poison’ which is actually Durban genetically crossed with Northern Lights.

After leaving SF and moving on to Southern California and then Northern Arizona I have seen many strains passed off as Durban that just plain aren’t. One reason that the Poison is so exciting is that it is a landrace strain. That means that it is not a genetic cross of anything, it is a pure strain from Africa. There are only about 7 landrace strains found in the world today including Acapulco Gold, Hawaiian, Afghani, Lambs Bread and more. It is also one of the few that is shown to almost always have a high concentration the coveted THCv, the cannabinoid that helps you to shed pounds.

How Does It Hit The Senses?

One way to know for sure that you’re hanging out with real deal Durban Poison is by the intense mint smell that resonates in the nostril after the immediate citrus pine aroma wears away. The buds will be pine tree shaped and light green with light orange pistils sprinkled evenly around. Real Durban is sticky icky, your fingers will have a residue when you break the little trees apart. There truly is not much better than the sweet, fresh aroma of Durban Poison.

 

What is the Effect?

Durban Poison will take effect immediately in the nasal region spreading quickly to the ocular system and then the entire head and mind. The slight pressure I often describe that occurs from medicating with Sativa strains is alive and well with Durban. The fabulous difference between this strain and other full Sativa strains is that it usually grows with an unusually high CBD content. After the strain takes hold in the mind it begins to show itself around the body. Those aches and pains that have become a familiar  daily occurrence will begin to dissipate. When the uplifting properties of the high combine with the mellowing body effects, the real magic of Durban Poison begins to happen. A heaviness washes over you but the mind is still very active which creates a calm, creative and almost psychedelic effect. Use this strain for creative stimulation every single time, it will help you reach new heights and help you to get into a focused zone. As for the anxiety that I personally experience with full Sativa strains, that only happens 5% of the time that I medicate with Durban.

Trinity Blueberry: The Happy Hybrid Strain Review

Hybrid Cultivar, Product Review

[Trinity County Kush x Blueberry][55% Sativa]

I’m not one for Sativas, but I know that my endocannabinoid system is one of a kind and so is yours. So with that in mind I’ve been searching for some Sativas that I find super intriguing to review here for you. One of the most delightful ones that is available from time to time here in Northern AZ is Trinity Blueberry. Ok, you got me it’s totally a hybrid, but it’s Sativa dominant so I’m getting closer. Perhaps one of the reasons I’m such a big fan is because this strain usually tests with very high CBD, probably because of it’s Blueberry parent genetics. Roll with the Trinity Blue if you’re feeling like having some perfect daytime pain relief or for the Sativa users maybe a bit of an anti-depressant in the late afternoon or evening.

Trinity

How Does It Hit The Senses?

Buds are a dark rich purple with so many visible trichomes to the naked eye that they lighten the appearance, almost like there was light snowfall on each bud. Each tree has beautiful spear like bud structure and grows extremely dense. Experience a smell of deep, sweet musky blueberry finished with light and airy bergamot. When you inhale the smoke or vapor from this beauty, the terpene profile is represented with a fresh blueberry taste that finishes in a lemon pine.

What is the Effect?

While this strain has high CBD it also has extremely high THC, topping out sometimes in the 20th percentile. After taking a rip all of the receptors in your brain will ignite, making you feel a slight pressure that is in no way painful in your cranium that moves to your ocular system. The face will feel alive and the mind will feel alert and active almost immediately after inhalation. After about 5 minutes you will begin to feel the joints and muscles in your body release in all of those tense places. The relaxation will seep into your body while your mind remains quite stimulated with a very engaged and present sense of energy. With the pain of your body subsiding and the light in your mind’s eye shining you should experience an anti-depressant euphoric effect.

Some inexperienced THC medicaters should  be prepared for the liftoff of the mind or they could experience some anxiety with the onset of this strain. If this is the case mix the strain with a CBD high THC low strain (Harlequin, Cannatonic, ACDC, Harley Tsu etc.). This will counter those THC effects and heighten the pain relief and seizure relief.

Use this to aide with: Anxiety, Depression, Pain Relief, Relaxation, Stress Relief and Light Seizures (Check test results for CBD levels of each batch for medicating seizures.) 

Black Diamond Cannabis Indica Strain Review

Indica Cultivar, Product Review

[Blackberry x Diamond Kush][100% Indica]

There are two ailments that I would commonly hear at the dispensary that always warranted at least a sample of Black Diamond: Nausea and Pain. The strain is High Mountain Health grown in Flagstaff, Arizona and has been a house strain at that dispensary for years.  Black Diamond is aptly named for being an expert only Indica, it will make a beginning patient feel sleepy. I like to tell the story of when I got cashew poisoning or the flu (I stopped trying to decide which thing happened). I dealt with stomach cramps what I can only image being compared to growing an alien baby inside of you. Long story short, a bong rip of Black Diamond cured all of my nausea to the point that I was able to sit down at a restaurant and eat for the first time in 3 days. It is a magical cure for stomach ailments and the full body pain relaxation doesn’t hurt either.

How Does It Hit The Senses?

The first thing you will notice every time you’re in the vicinity of Black Diamond is that the whole room fills with a sweet, blackberry aroma. That smell of Blackberry cannabis brings back so many memories of being a young patient in San Francisco that perhaps there is some nostalgia associated with Black Diamond sessions. Seriously though, nothing but the smell of sweet, sweet fruit fills the nostril. Buds are structured like perfect little Pine trees in a mixture of dark purple and kelly green hues. Long, light orange hairs are blanketed over the buds along with icy trichomes. On inhalation the sweet blackberry taste remains, but is paired with a rich cocoa.

What is the Effect?

Effects from Black Diamond take hold first in the spine, slowly creeping up and down the body to relax muscle tension. You’ll feel aches and pains that have become normal slowly dissipate in the first moments of inhalation. Once the creeping effects reach the head you’ll begin to feel a brief relaxation of the mind quickly taken over by a curiosity of thought. The mind always begins to wander for the first moments of a Black Diamond high. Eventually while thought is illuminated the strain begins to hit the ocular nerves and muscles around the eye. Once this effect takes hold it is a quick free fall into Indica territory. I like to describe this strain as one of those rides at the County Fair where you’re strapped into a chair on a giant tall mechanism that slowly brings you up to a peak where you can see just for a moment pure clarity and then BANG!! you’re down. It will take you up to an almost Sativa feeling and then just drop you to a deep Indica effect, this is why I wouldn’t recommend this for all Insomniacs. If you’re mind cannot be stimulated before sleep then choose a more pure relaxation oriented strain like Granddaddy Purple or Purple Kush. Otherwise enjoy sleep almost uncontrollably depending on the potency of the batch with Black Diamond.

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
