Judging by all the positive press that weed is receiving from all sorts of different media sources, I am 100% sure that today’s population is much more friendly toward cannabis then their parents were 30 years ago. Multiple states have legalized marijuana already, and a bunch of others are in the process of doing so.
The situation is improving across the globe as well. There are several countries that legalized cannabis for medicinal or recreational use, and a few more considering legalization at the moment. Although the vast majority of the governments are still in opposition to full legalization, the number of regular people who support legalized weed is growing by the day. And sooner or later, the politicians will have to take that into account.
It is 4:20, light up and celebrate your life. Put on some old school rap (some old Snoop Dogg would be very appropriate, although pretty much any West Coast will do), and bounce your head to the rhythm.
It is very pleasant to see that my investment in Aurora Cannabis Inc. (ACB) was a wise decision back in the day. While looking over the financial market news I was pleasantly surprised to see my stock mentioned in the “Ones To Watch” by Investopedia (which by itself is something special). It was accompanied by Cronos Group Inc. (CRON), Canopy Growth Corp. (CGC) and a whole slew of pharmaceutical companies that are scattering to cash in on the Big Green Rush.
Some of you know that I have been on a sort of a “forced” tolerance break, so I have not consumed any cannabis in several months. Well guess what, I’m back, Baby ! And yes, I was counting the days until I could taste that sweet, sweet marijuana smoke.
That first hit was magical. I tasted that special “dank” sweetness that you usually only remember from your early smoking days. That very distinct “wacky tabacky” flavor that is so different from the cigarettes and cigarillos that people usually smoke on.
And the effect, well, let’s just say that I was blown away. Buzzing for a good 3 hours. Very intense. Was totally paranoid like a teenager. Just like smoking for the first time.
There is an old saying that the children of famous people are usually talentless. But not in this case. This is one of those cases, when the child of two celebrities has become famous all on its own. “Chanel” was brought about by crossing the award-winning “Big Bud” with a veteran of the cannabis community and award-winning cannabis strain “Skunk“. Yes, that same “Skunk” that made a big splash in the 1980s. I don’t think “Channel” has ever won a Cannabis Cup, but the strain does have several notable awards and recognitions.
The flowers have great “bag appeal”. (they look even better in the jar) Buds are big and dense, and are covered in crystals. Very frosty looking nugs. The color is a mixture of light green and pale orange, with streaks of red and purple.
Once you light up, the taste is heavy and aromatic. You will remember the old school smell of kind bud. That dense, heavy skunky smell of your childhood marijuana adventures.
Once you smell your childhood, the effects will start to roll in like the ocean waves. This famous product of celebrities porking is very potent, and will hit you hard with each wave. It’s Indica dominant genetics will relax you and help you sleep. It is a great strain for people with insomnia or that have trouble calming down.
Well, I was sitting over here, getting high, thinking about Twitter followers and shit. And all of a sudden I’m thinking “Hey!”, it’d be all right if I get a little bit of a variety into my blog. Put a little bit of an image action up in that Twitter feed. So since I’m high, I figured why not put some words on the images while I’m at it as well. Shit. So here it is right here enjoy. ( I will be able to use this image later when making posts about Twitter or @SovietStoner on Twitter)
Both of my seeds came up, and are looking lovely. So, I figured I would give you some basic info on the strain. I was looking for something sweet and great tasting for some variety, and I decided that the Cherry Bomb from Bomb Seeds is the way to go. Cherry Bomb is a Indica-dominant Hybrid, developed by Bomb Seeds by crossing they’re monster yielding Big Bomb with a unique and fruity Cherry variety. Because it is an Indica dominant, the plants grow short and bushy, and stay at a low to medium height, which is just perfect for my small space. The THC content is extremely high around 25%. I am not sure what the CBD content is exactly. The yield is also high. It can be grown indoor or outdoor. Indoors it will take 8 to 10 weeks to flower. Outdoor the harvest comes in late September early October. Because of its Indica genes, the effect is couch locking and relaxing, very sedating.
