Purity is often sought out for a more discernible effect, a more pronounced energetic boost from a sativa or a heavier more sedative drag from an indica. But what happens when you need both energy and pain relief? For my review today I get a chance to see just that: a beautiful combination of Granddaddy Purple and Trainwreck.
For this week's review my boss thought it may be a good idea to reintroduce folks to our high grade Romulan cold water hash - hands down one of the best indica products we have. Deceptive in its packaging, often at a glance it looks more like a small polished brown marble than anything else. Brought close, the oily residue left on the container from where the hash has touched is clearly evident, leaving little doubt as to how 'melty' it's going to be. Only one way to tell though, and that's by digging in.
Despite all the recent federal crackdowns and the fear mongering they engender, medical cannabis is still at an all time high. We continue to see more strains of better quality and better variety. Which is why I feel fortunate to have such an incredible selection. This weeks review is just one more weapon for your arsenal against illness, a powerful sativa dominant hybrid: Sour Grapes.
Cannabis is no different in falling prey to fads and what is 'trendy'. In the past, we have seen crazes over a variety of strains: from OG Kush, to Haze, to just about anything with the color purple. Most of the time it's simply the appearance of something new to the cannabis scene: an effect that is more pronounced, a smell or taste that has never before been explored, or a look that seems to not belong on cannabis at all. It seems obvious then, when someone decided to breed not only OG Kush and Granddaddy Purple but Durban Poison as well, the result would be a bud almost universally loved: Girl Scout Cookies or G.S.C.
Despite the recent rise in popularity of CBD rich strains, many patients still remain unaware of their benefits. At Berkeley Patients Care Collective, we consider it of the utmost importance to educate ourselves and our patients to the best of our abilities in order to better understand what cannabis can do for us. For this reason, this weeks review will take a good hard look at two CBD rich strains: 'Harlequin' and 'Terpene Queen'.
...cannabis doesn't just have variations in effect, but also in a wide range of smells and tastes. The sample I have been provided for this review is one of the most unique smells I have found in the cannabis world, even though it is the very embodiment of its namesake: Maple.
Medical Marijuana has long had to sift through the stuff of legend, only to find a small kernel of truth. From a mysterious lineage to an exotic taste, much of what is known is passed down, and not always correctly. Fortunately, that information is not always necessary in order to objectively review something. My current review is no different, purportedly representing the near-legendary pure Sativa strain that Bob Marley favored most: Lambsbread.
The depth and complexity of something should not be simplified to its outside appearance. In the world of cannabis, however, the looks of a strain will give you invaluable insight into what its potential effects may be. This week’s review is particularly eye catching with its deep purple countenance: Granddaddy Purple.
For this weeks review, I get a chance to look at one of my very favorite skunk strains: Island Sweet Skunk. A sativa heavy hybrid, Island Sweet Skunk is most often considered a phenotype of Skunk #1 or a close relative. They certainly share similarities in appearance, displaying the same shade of light green.
