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.
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.
Okay okay folks, trying to bring a little variety to my stoner life. Just planted two brand new strains. The first one is the “Blue God” from Jordan of the Islands (Vancouver based breeder). The second one is a feminized version of the “Cherry Bomb”, from Bomb Seeds. Both are Indica dominant hybrids. I have to stick with the indicas because I am very limited on space, and I have to keep my plants short and bushy. Both strains boast a high THC content, and should be heavy yielders. I am particularly excited about this Cherry Bomb.
Another weak put away. The weekend is here, it’s time to relax, and chill the fuck out. If you got some joints lined up, now is the time to spark them up. if you don’t have any weed, now is the time to go get some. Seriously people. Some of you are so tense that you really really need to smoke some weed and calm down. Happy Friday! Enjoy yourself. And #StayLifted.
So about this Grease Monkey. I am not 100% sure what the origins of the genetics are on this particular one, I was not able to find it in any of the major seed banks. (Although I have to be honest with you I wasn’t looking very hard). I was first introduced to this particular strain by my Michigan connection, and immediately recognized a future or maybe even a past Cannabis Cup winner. (It would be awesome if it was like a 1990s Cannabis Cup winner).
The first thing you notice when you pick up a bag of this crazy chronic is the unique coloration. The color is very pale pinkish purple with some frosty tan hues. There are some very purple looking buds every now and again. And you can often find purple and pink and white mixed like a swirl. It’s crazy looking. Exotic even.
The second thing you notice is the very unique taste. Thin, fruity, almost sour like, and definitely one of a kind. Does not leave a nasty after taste like some of the other hybrids. (I’m assuming that it’s a hybrid because you get a very uplifting head high in addition to the body couch-lock buzz)
The last thing you notice is the incredibly strong buzz. The high is strong and almost narcotic. The effects are relaxing and very couch locking. Although creativity has been known to spike while smoking this incredible dank.
It also helps that this particular strain has an incredibly high THC and CBD levels. So yeah it gets you fucked up. For real! This is an excellent candidate for medicinal marijuana patients, and because of the high CBD content it is great for extracting oils and concentrates.
This particular strain is in my Top 5 for the best tasting list, and my Top 5 most potent list. And for good reasons. I am hoping to eventually get a clone from my Michigan people.
Ohh, you know how I really like tasty weed. Well this is definitely one for the tasty column. Introducing: Cookies Kush ! This delicious marijuana strain comes from crossing an award winning “Girl Scout Cookies” with an award winning “Rolex OG Kush“. The result is a hard hitting Indica with a great, sweet taste, and big dense buds.
I have to be honest, this is definitely in the top 5 on my Tastiest List. Don’t get me wrong, this is NO Blue Dream. But it’s pretty damn close. This amazing strain is a true Indica. It took 1st Prize Cannabis Cup HTCC 2014 in Amsterdam, so you know it is the cream of the crop. It sports a fairly high 24% THC level, and a 1.2% CBD level, which makes it an ideal candidate for medicinal uses.
The flowers themselves have top shelf bag appeal. Buds are dense and coated with a generous layer of trichomes. The coloring is light green with traces of white and orange. The taste is sweet, chocolaty with a small whiff of mint.
