It's lead to problems.

Taking The Hit: Lemon Kush Distillate Cartridge Produced by Orchid Essentials

This is now the third strain I have tried from Orchid Essentials and one of the first things that drew me to their Vape Pens was the Orchid flower used to symbolize their brand. Orchids are beautiful elegant plants that require the highest of attention to properly propagate, so naturally when it comes to flowers they are thought of as classy and high end; now what could be a better symbol for a high end company?

The taste of the Lemon Kush Pen is 100% to be expected, as the subtle taste of lemons moved over my tongue and into my lungs I noticed a nice at ease feeling wash over me. And although this strain is said to be used more for Nighttime use, I found it extremely beneficial to use during the Daytime as well. Sometime, because of my GI issue's, finding my appetite can be a little trying at times so something like Orchid's Lemon Kush was greatly enjoyed. Usually I would wait at least until noon to try to self medicate with this tasty little lemon gem, as it did bring a wonderful sense of calm into the room [and if you weren't careful could bring on a full on nap]. Best to ease the symptoms of Stress and Anxiety while providing a nice dose of Relaxation and Appetite to those who need it.

Taking The Hit: Tropical Trainwreck Distillate Shatter from Winberry Farms

Tropical Trainwreck distillate shatter produced by Winberry Farms

Winberry Farms has a knack for creating great tasting distillate oils. For a while now, they've been my go-to company for buying distillate vape cartridges. Their blackberry cream tastes just like one of those Creme Savers candies I used to eat as a kid. The Mango Super Silver Haze is incredibly reminiscent of a pomello, being both fruity and floral. So Tropical Trainwreck is just what you would expect from the name, and gives off a strong fruit punch flavor. 

 

Tropical Trainwreck distillate shatter produced by Winberry Farms

I have tried Winberry's Tropical Trainwreck strain before in a cartridge, so I thought I knew what to expect from this oil in a dab-able form. To my pleasant surprise the flavor and effects of the dab was much more intense than the cartridge. To start, the distillate Tropical Trainwreck shatter is an astounding 86.5% THC! Which meant that I only had to use a small portion of the oil to reach a very comfortable high.

The flavor of the dab was also creamier than I remember the cartridge being, while still having that signature fruit punch flavor. The color is a soft, almost powdered yellow, that sparkles when it catches the light. The texture is surprisingly soft for a shatter. The oil had a soft give more like a hard dough than a brittle shatter, and I appreciated not having to worry about any errant shatter trying to jump away. Tropical Trainwreck is a sativa-hybrid, and the high for me was very cerebral. It's a strain that won't put you to sleep, but can still space you out.

While a bit pricey for me to buy as an everyday strain at R $75.60 / M $63, I would definitely consider picking up Tropical Trainwreck, or a sister strain, for a special treat in the future.

Taking The Hit: Indica Fruity Nut Bar produced by Laurie + MaryJane

I got one of these a while back and forgot to make a review. This bar was absolutely delicious. It was sweet and crunchy and well balanced. It came with card-stock dosing guide which says how to portion the bar into 5 mg chunks. I would definitely use a knife to portion the bar, because it doesn’t break evenly. Honestly this one was so good I ate a little too much. I split it with Aaron before bed and I actually couldn’t sleep for a bit because I was too high, despite the indica strain. I mention this with customers now and then, that since it’s so delicious and not divided into servings you may want to eat more than you need, so be careful.

Taking The Hit: Lemon Thai grown by Dicot Farms

Lemon Thai grown by Dicot Farms

The Lemon Thai flower grown by Dicot Farms is an uplifting Sativa. This strain is a cross between Hawaiian x Thailand Sativa, so it'll take your senses and mind on a tropical ride that's filled with joy.

Dicot Farms is an organic cannabis grower, so you can be assured that this strain is organic and clean. The strain has a strong citrus and lemon scent, so the limonene terpenes really stand out. This scent can also be tasted in the flower when smoked, so it has a light lemon taste.

The high did sneak up on me, so I would recommend waiting a bit after smoking! This flower is only going for $7.20 a gram which is a great deal, especially for bulk buyers. So, c'mon' down to the Agrestic and treat yourself to the tropical trip of Lemon Thai.

Taking The Hit: Sour Diesel Olive Oil from Little House Foods

Sour Diesel Olive Oil produced by Little House Foods

My default assumption from pop-culture was that edibles were sweet treats like chocolates and brownies. So when a new product, like the Little House infused olive oil, comes into our store it catches my attention. Olive oil is an interesting thing to dose with THC. It's not an get-and-eat edible that you pop in your mouth and enjoy like a truffle. (I mean, unless you want to.) It takes a bit more thought into how you're going to prepare it to eat. Especially since I most commonly use oil to roast potatoes in the oven, and I felt like that would be wasting the oil in the pan.

Inspiration first struck me when I was wandering around the grocery store. I was picking up some bread and passed by a display of hummus! If you didn't know, one of hummus' main ingredients is olive oil. I scooped out about a 1/4 of a 10oz  package of hummus and mixed in the entire 5mL of the dosed olive oil. To my delight the hummus completely absorbed the oil that I added in, and I couldn't taste any of the common cannabis-plant flavor that is sometimes found in savory edibles. 

The next time I buy this olive oil I plan on creating a dipping plate with it, a nice raspberry balsamic vinegar, and a loaf of freshly baked french bread. Since I couldn't taste the cannabis flavor of the olive oil when I used it in the hummus I think this olive oil can be used as if you had a traditional olive. It could be easily used to top some pasta or create a salad dressing. 

 Sour Diesel Olive Oil from Little House Foods

Sour Diesel Olive Oil from Little House Foods

I have used coconut oil tinctures before for baking, and olive oil would be another good substitute if you're a fan of sweet treats. This recipe is very close to the pie crust recipe that I use at home, and makes a great based for a dosed pie crust as you don't need to alter the recipe at all. Since the crust of the pie is dosed, the fillings of the pie could be left untouched, creating a balance to any herbal flavor the crust would have. Dosing is a snap for pies when the crust is what you're infusing. If you split your pie into even pieces all you need to do is diving the amount of THC you've put into the crust by the number of slices to find out the dose per slice. For example, if you put the 50mg olive oil into a six slice pie, you would have about 8.3mg of THC per slice. (50mg of THC / 6 slices = 8.3mg of THC per slice of pie)

The olive oil is a steal at R $12 / M $10 for a full 50mg of THC. It's also a strain specific edible, currently the ones we have in the shop are made with Sour Diesel which is a Sativa strain. This is definitely an edible that I'll be picking up again!

Taking The Hit Double Feature: SOG Blackberry grown by Sons of Agronomy

SOG Blackberry grown by Sons of Agronomy

Blackberry from Sons of Agronomy

by Papa J

It tastes like Blackberries. It smells like blackberries. Need I say more? Since I do, I will say this. The look of the bud had a nice bright color to it and the smoking experience was smooth. The high was mellow, not overpowering, but very peresent. I was happily surprised by another new farm and quality bud. Thanks Sons!

Taking The Hit: Indica Hypnos Tincture Produced by TJ's Gardens

Hypnos Tincture produced by TJ's Gardens

I recently tried the Indica Hypnos Tincutre produced by TJ's Gardens. I got this product initially to help manage my sleep regimen as I tend to suffer from bouts of insomnia. Upon getting the product home I followed the Instructions on the bottle for use and attempted to see how the recommended dose worked, .66mL about 3/4s of a dropper. I found the taste of the product to be pleasant, It did have a mild cannabis (green) flavor that persisted for a short time after swallowing the tincture. I found that the single dose for my tolerance and body size was a little underwhelming and so for subsequent doses I used 2 full mL (~About 3 doses) and that had me feeling wonderful and floaty, ready to slip into slumber at the gentle coaxing of a pillow.  I would recommend this product to anyone hoping to soften the edges of any anxiety they may suffer, or looking to find some deep relaxation without smoking.

Taking The Hit: Kings Pure Kush grown by Kings Cannabis

Kings Pure Kush grown by Kings Cannabis

I've tried King's Pure Kush flower in both the 1/2g pre-rolls and bulk flower options. The pre-rolls come in a cute cone canister which is sealed closed. I like the way that King's designates what strain is in a pre-roll container by the color of the cap, Pure Kush for example has a white lid, while GG #4 has a black cap, and Chernobyl has silver. I do wish this packaging was child-resistant re-sealable though, as I don't often remember to bring an exit bag in with me when I'm picking up a pre-roll. 

The pre-roll was rolled well, not stuffed too tightly to where I couldn't pull through the joint, or too loosely which could cause the joint to stop and start. Even in a pre-roll the flower had a beautiful creamy vanilla sweetness to it. The flower smells strongly of sugar and earth. There was a creamy sweetness to the smoke that reminded me strongly of cookies and cream. It's got some good looks too, a light green flower and a very frosty coating. The high was heavy and sedative, and after a sharing a few bowls with my bestie we were both falling asleep on the couch.

Taking The Hit: Strawberry Cough Distillate Cartridge Produced by Orchid Essentials

Strawberry Cough 1g distillate cartridge produced by Orchid Essentials

This cartridge honestly took me by surprise. At first, you get an intoxicating breath full of a strong pungent strawberry aroma with a very comparable taste. As a lovely fragrant taste of strawberries hit my taste buds I was thrilled with how flavorful this cartridge really was. I felt an immense relaxation wash over my body while my mind stayed comfortably alert throughout the day, but if I was left immobile and sitting for too long I began to fade from being too relaxed. This strain was great at providing relief from day-to-day stress as a slightly euphoric yet relaxing buzz becomes apparent.

One of my favorite things about Orchid Essentials is that they use 100% organic materials in their distillate, including the cannabis derived terpene that they use to thin their final solution. I would 100% recommend ANY of Orchid’s Cartridge types!!!

Taking The Hit: Sativa Citrus Cannabis Shot from Enjoy

Sativa Citrus Cannabis Shot produced by Enjoy

These shots have been selling like crazy since they are R$12 for 50mg of THC. I got to try one the other day and I thought it was really good. I had the sativa shot, and it was surprisingly energizing, which I wasn’t expecting because edibles usually aren’t strain specific. It tasted great too, I was expecting a chalky medicine taste but it was a really good lemonade/citrus flavor. The only problem I had was that it was hard to dose myself. I took what I thought was a medium sized sip and then over half the bottle was gone. I usually only take about 10mg of edibles at a time so I thought I would be crazy high, but it turned out alright. Overall I would buy this again.

Taking The Hit: Blue Hawaiian Crumble Produced by Apollo Grown

I decided to try this particular extract strain at two separate times of the day...

  1. The first time I sampled Blue Hawaiian was for a morning Wake-N-Bake tester. I found that I actually really enjoyed this strain first thing in the morning. It brought a very nice uplifted alertness to my mind and provided just enough energy to sweep any left over drowsiness away so I could happily tackle anything the day brought me.

  2. The second sample was more or a Mid-Day tester. This also provided me with a nice dose of energy that left me feeling more uplifted and awake rather than motivational or active. This did however prove to be a great mid-day strain if your power levels start to fall halfway through the day, or you just need an extra little boost to get you through the rest of your evening.

 

Blue Hawaiian Crumble produced by Apollo Grown. 

This extract is a beautiful 1g slab of tightly compact crumble, the packaging is elegant and so flashy with gold accents, and the price is one that won't hurt the bank or your wallet.

Taste:

  • The taste was smooth and very easy on the inhale with a light hint of sweet for the aftertaste. The flavor profile being as subtle as it was I actually had to take a couple dabs to really gauge the slight sweetness to it.

Effect:

  • The effects were felt almost instantaneous! With a burst of feeling awake and a nice rush of energy Blue Hawaiian can easily be used during any time of the day.

Blue Hawaiian Crumble produced by Apollo Grown.

With an organic and environmentally sustainable method of growing, Apollo Grown is definitely reaching a new level of standards within the Recreational Cannabis Industry. With one goal in mind: "To provide our community with healthy marijuana products by utilizing environmentally sustainable practices. And like Apollo riding Pegasus to the top of Mount Olympus, we hope to serve as a leader in this emerging industry and to shed light on new innovations. Please join us on our quest!"

This extract is 100% worth the buy and isn't too expensive either!

Taking The Hit: 1:1 Fruity Nut Bar Produced by Laurie + Mary Jane

✨Confessions Of A CannaMom✨

1:1 Fruity Nut Bar produced by Laurie + Mary Jane

I recently had my neck go out and it was very painful to move my head from left to right and back. Between the pain and having to toss and turn all night trying to get comfortable this issue was causing me to have trouble sleeping. After a few sleepless nights I decided to try Laurie + Mary Jane's 1:1 Bar hoping to get the full cannabinoid effect to relieve my extreme pain.

It was super yummy! Like a healthy rice crispy treat! With banana and chocolate! I took half of it about 15 minuets before bed. Finally! Some relief! I slept soundly all night with out waking up once! I also noticed a much less sever pain and more mobility in my neck due to the muscle relaxing effects of the CBD. It was a very welcome first experience with this product.

It does have a slight hint of a "green" taste. But I did not find it to be unpleasant or overpowering. The delicious taste of the bar far outweighs any cannabis flavor. The maker of these delicious bars, Laurie Wolf, is a famous gourmet chef who written 6+ cookbooks, four of which are cannabis cookbooks. Her quality and love for delicious food reflects in this product.  I would definitely be trying these again. I really love having a healthier edible option that still tastes great! This would be a really great bar for someone who tends to get anxious, as the CBD has a very soothing, calming effect.  Or anyone who is just looking for some pain relief!

Taking The Hit: Alternative Facts Shatter Produced by Claywolf from Flower Grown by Old Apple Farm

Alternative Facts shatter produced by Claywolf from flower grown by Old Apple Farm

It was love at first sight. The colorful marbled design with a wolf face wax seal and a window to look at the beautiful extract inside. I’m talking about the packaging of the Extracts by Clay Wolf. Such a beautiful display for an equally amazing product. The Alternative Facts was the name of the strain and strong sativa was its game. The extract had sugared up and the terpenes had started separating from the THC which caused it to shimmer in the light when examined closely. The somewhat spicy, kind of floral flavor really hit hard and I could feel my cheeks blushing after one dab. Be cautious of paranoia/ anxiety on this one, I believe it is called alternative facts due to this effect. Had me questioning everything I thought I knew, but in the best way possible. If someone told you it’s bad they’re probably just telling you alternative facts.

Taking The Hit: Blue Dragon Desert Frost Extract Produced by Dab Society

Blue Dragon Desert Frost extract produced by Dab Society from flower by Yerba Buena

Until trying Blue Dragon Desert Frost I have never had a high CBD strain work for pain, and give me a non psycho active euphoric energy boost. This is a great choice for pain relief in the day time when you want to be functional and you don't really want the high. Dab Society knows how to extract and Yerba Buena know how to grow some amazing cannabis. Blue Dragon Desert Frost is a high CBD Sativa strain with a nice floral scent, it tests at 69% CBD and 3.2% THC .

Taking The Hit: Nana's Fix grown by Kleen Karma Gardens

Nana's Fix grown by Kleen Karma Gardens

This lovely herb is a Sativa-dominant strain grown by Kleen Karma Gardens. It’s like having a home cooked supper from your favorite relative, like maybe Grandma (: . It delivers a euphoric high with warm and heavy muscle relief within the body. The body high also feels like having a full tummy of grandmas cookies 🍪 ! The buds shine in the jar with their frosty white and light green hues. They look and taste like sweet treats, so treat yourself to some well deservered good karma, and get your fix by nana!  👵

Taking The Hit: Black Lime grown by Dicot Farms

Black Lime is an Indica hybrid strain grown by Dicot Farms. The first thing that caught my attention was how sticky and fresh the flower felt. Just pulling the bud apart to put it into my grinder left the tips of my fingers coated in resin. The Black Lime flower has a mossy yellow-green color, with a thick coating of trichomes and dark orange-brown hairs. It smells sweet, like fruit candy or a lime tart, with a touch of mint on the end. I smoked this strain out of a beaker bong with some Hemp wick as my fire source. The smoke was smooth, I think in part due to how nice and moist the flower was, and had a hint of sweet mint in the smoke. I was surprised to notice that I felt very awake, focused, and slightly buzzy with energy. This Indica hybrid is relaxing but definitely not sedative. Overall a great high.

Taking The Hit: Slymer grown by Renegade Roots

Slymer grown by Renegade Roots

Slymer is a flower grown by our farm, Renegade Roots, and it's genetics are a Chernobyl phenotype. If you've never heard of Chernobyl before, it's known for its strong uplifting and relaxing cerebral affects. It has a unique lime/pine/citrus scent and you can tell what affects it will have just by smelling it. It's great for the anxious or stress-induced stoner who doesn't want to go to sleep every time they smoke something to calm their nerves. Plus with our Renegade Hour when these strains are $2 off per gram, its becoming one of my go-to purchases.
