Taking The Hit: Jaeger OG grown by Hillside Herbs

Jaeger OG Flower...

Jaeger OG grown by Hillside Herbs

This little 80% Indica was not what I was expecting to be honest.. It had a very fresh earthy lemon sent and an extremely aromatic flavor when smoked. On the inhale I noticed the taste before everything else, what I noticed next was how smooth the hit was, and the exhale tasted almost as floral going out as it did in. 
 
 In an instant the very gentle feeling of deep relaxation covered me like a blanket and I could feel my body sinking into the couch for what would likely be the remainder of the night. As I sat and watched TV I felt extremely calm and at ease with just a touch of spaciness. After a while the effects seemed to creep up into a stronger couch lock and if left immobile for too long a comforting sedation began to set in. And as my night came to an end I found it almost impossible to keep my eyes open, laying down for bed I finally let this strains effects fizzle out by providing a restful and much needed full night’s sleep.

Taking The Hit: Jelly Breath grown by Higher Minds Horticulture

Jelly Breath Flower...

Jelly Breath grown by Higher Minds Horticulture

First I HAVE to say that Higher Minds Horticulture is by far MY FAVORITE grower in Oregon [since the days of Medical in 2014... they've been my favorite] And now, they've created some exciting and delicious new strains!

Jelly Breath is a beautiful 50/50 Hybrid created by crossing the amazing Mendo Breath with the ever tasty Do-Si-Do. The two together makes for one deliciously true Hybrid strain, that can move you in either direction. The aroma is sweet and fruity almost like the smell of berries with a slightly more earthy undertone. The taste, OH THE TASTE! Much to my surprise Jelly Breath had an unmistakably fruity taste that mingled ever so nicely with its smooth yet slight spicy earthiness, and as every hit tasted just as good as the last it only made me wanting more! Now to get to the good stuff... The effects. First I noticed this strain has two sides, much like a coin. On the first side you get an upbeat, very enjoyable, and slightly motivational cerebral boost [but that doesn't last long and is prolonged by lots of movement] but soon you reach the second side and start to fade into this spacey, very relaxed, and sedative couch-lock.

Jelly Breath grown by Higher Minds Horticulture

I had the pleasure of sampling this little beauty after my closing shift which let me off at about 11pm. I came home, sat down, and loaded a huge bowl of Jelly Breath. After smoking about half of my bowl, I decided at 1am that the time to finish building a Snake rack for my Ball Pythons was now! So I did - for the next hour or so I was so motivated and alert of what was going on and exactly what I needed to do to complete this large task. Once I had finished, it looked so great, I felt I was deserving of the remainder of my bowl. As I sat on the couch watching TV in the dark finishing my bowl, I noticed a great wave of deep seeded relaxation washing thru my entire body, bringing me to a much needed deep sleep that left me feeling extremely rested and a tad cramped as I never made it off the couch. Overall this was one of the BEST strains I've had from in my four years of being an Oregon Medical Marijuana Patient.

Taking The Hit: Amnesia Haze Pull-N-Snap Produced by White Label Extracts

Amnesia Haze produced by White Label Extracts from flower grown by Love Life Farms

This extract was a stroke of luck for me because I LOVE White Label Extracts and I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE Amnesia Haze flower from Love Life Farms!!!

This was an amazing dab! I decided that the BEST way to enjoy the effects and flavor of this lovely Pull-N-Snap was with my new-ish Nector Collector. The first thing I noticed was that this product was a pretty stable, but very sticky, slab of Pull-N-Snap with a beautiful light-amber coloration to it; to the point of being able to see through it when held up to the light. And the sweet yet slightly citrus-y aroma definitely complimented the smooth spicy-earthy taste that presented itself when vaporized.

Amnesia Haze Pull-N-Snap extract produced by White Label Extracts from flower grown by Love Life Farms

A wonderfully uplifting burst of energy spread over my entire body as a slightly hazy mind change set in. One of the best things about I noticed about this strain is you can be as active as you want and even the high will help keep you motivated! Personally I've found it most enjoyable when utilized right before a nice leisurely bike ride... with the wind in my hair and the sun on my face that uplifting motivational high just can't be beat.

Taking The Hit: APC Flower Grown by Renegade Roots

APC flower grown by Renegade Roots

APC Flower...

THIS IS BY FAR MY FAVORITE CBD STRAIN EVER!!!

Not only does this little beauty smell sweet and exotic, but it has the most amazing effects! APC is a wonderfully enjoyable 1:1 CBD strain with a slight Indica lean and a true Middle Eastern Landrace background.

The last time I had the pleasure of smoking some APC was more than a year ago [from the same farm luckily] and I have to say what I experienced this Harvest was EXACTLY the same effects as when I had it the first time around. And the ONLY Farm I have ever seen this strain come out of is Renegade Roots and I have to say I LOVE it so much I even got a little Clone to grow out and harvest myself this year!

APC flower grown by Renegade Roots

On the inhale you get a nice and smooth, but earthy flavor with a slightly sweeter exhale that seems to immediately relieve any tension the day has thrown at me. Of course after a few puffs from my double perk bong its Indica side has me on my butt feeling slight sedated, all the while my mind is at ease and I have very little to no discomforts or pains. For me personally, this is a great sleep aid as it has a decent amount of THC as well to help push you into that sleepy more relaxed night time mentality, although this strain has also provided me with great pain relief during daytime use in smaller doses.

Taking The Hit: VC/DC 0.75g disposable cartridge from Quill

"The Quill is Mightier than the Pen."

VC/DC 0.75g disposable cartridge produced by Quill

This beautiful and FULLY recyclable vape pen definitely brings a new level to discreetly medicating while on the go. Thanks to its small size and sleek silver appearance, this pen can be easily concealed within a purse or pocket [although we never recommend leaving vape pens in one's pocket].

Filled with 0.75g of premium CO2 extract and paired with a bright white light at the bottom to display a draw effect, this pen is perfect for short or long pulls and is crazy easy to adjust your dosage. Fist off, I noticed the strain itself was exceptionally beneficial! Not only did it massively relieve every discomfort I was experiencing [i.e. lower back pain, headaches, & menstrual cramping to be specific], but it also provided a wonderful dose of a full on body/mind relaxation. Due to the high amounts of CBD within this strain VC/DC makes for a great option for anyone looking to Medicate without speculation.

VC/DC 0.75g disposable cartridge produced by Quill

VC/DC was created through crossing Viper City OG x AC/DC to produce a wonderful 2:1 CBD strain that presents with a nicely rounded high. And finally, when your pen has ran out of extract to vape it will alert you by brightly flashing its bottom white light, so that way you know it is time for it to be recycled. Recycling is easy, as all you need to do is bring the used cartridge back to the shop.

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?

Lemon Kush 1g distillate cartridge produced by Orchid Essentials

Lemon Kush 1g distillate cartridge produced by Orchid Essentials

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: 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: 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: Sativa Citrus Cannabis Shot from Enjoy

I decided to try this product for two different reasons...

  1. They look very much like those energy shots you see at convenient stores.
  2. I had a customer say they didn't taste very good.

What I noticed first is that there was only two ways to drink this little shot. Either you could immediately down the whole thing [which for me was 3 swift gulps] or you could sip on it and make it last much, much longer. Sipping this tasty little beverage is definitely a reasonable option, and provides a much more palatable taste, and lessens the strength of the effects. Downing the entire 2oz shot does have some benefits as well, not only do you get to experience the full effects of this tiny drink and can take larger doses at once.

Sativa Citrus Cannabis Shot produced by Enjoy

 

Taste:

  • The taste, honestly, wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. There was this nice orange lemonade like flavoring to start, finished off with a decently noticeable cannabis aftertaste.

 

The Sip Method:

  • With the Sip Method you can get up to 10 servings per 2oz Shot. The taste is much more bearable with its light orange fruity flavoring and a very mild hint of cannabis extract on the aftertaste. The effects were felt nearly immediate on an empty stomach, though they were very mellow and felt almost more in the background with an uplifting and slightly alert mindset.

 

 

The Down-It Method:

  • With the Down-It Method you would generally only get 1 serving per 2oz Shot. The taste can be a bit harsh with its cannabis extract aftertaste, but if you like the traditional Energy Shots I'm sure you'll be just fine. The effects started a bit more gradually with this method, a slow climb to the peak of its effects beginning with a sense of awake alertness that grew until there was only energy left. I felt great and very awake for the first hour and a half after full consumption, but crashed hard afterwards. My crash was well deserved and much needed, and nicely only lasted an hour or two tops. 


Over all my experience was enjoyed, although, I do feel that next time I'll try half a shot instead of a full shot, to see if I still crash after the high has started to fade.

Taking The Hit: Jack Herer Distillate Cartridge produced by Orchid Essentials

Jack Herer distillate cartridge produced by Orchid Essentials

Jack Herer distillate cartridge produced by Orchid Essentials

Because I had previously tried Orchid Essentials in a different strain/flavoring of cartridge I knew partially what I was getting myself into. This strain however, was very subtle in both its scent as well as it’s flavor... being a Jack Herer imitation I have to say I LOVED this cartridge just as much as I do the strain itself! With a very mild Lime flavoring and an extremely energetic cerebral high I used this strain most during the early day to wake and bake. Due to having some intense gastric distress issues, I find myself mostly enjoying strains that allow me to medicate early in the day while providing a massive dose of pain relief so that I can continue my day feeling wonderful and this did exactly that. 

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

Taking The Hit: Gastrointestinal Distress and Terpenes

Nana's Fix grown by Kleen Karma Gardens

Just under five years ago I decided to acquire my OMMP Card for Chronic Nausea and for the six years prior to my decision I faced constant pain, massive discomfort, nausea, and vomiting with almost every meal I had. My doctor at the time was not quite sure how to help me or and wasn't even sure what the issue could be, so I saw a Gastroenterologist a few times and was given a countless variety of both over-the-counter and prescription medications to help ease some of the issue's, but to no avail did any of them actually work.

After I got my OMMP card and I started using cannabis to combat my issues I found massive relief... but only from certain strains. My new doctor had me do a blood draw and graciously sent me back to see a Gastroenterologists to have an endoscopy done; there I learned not only did I have Hypothyroidism, but Fructose Malabsorption as well.

Lavender Trinity 1/2g cartridge from EVO

 

  1. Hypothyroidism - A condition in which the thyroid of a person is under-active, causing hormone imbalances, weight changes, and fatigue..

  2. Fructose Malabsorption - A condition in which the small intestines lacks the necessary Fructose carrier cells to properly transfer natural fructose sugars through the body, causing nausea/vomiting, severe abdominal pain, bloating, and in some cases diarrhea..

 

 

 

 

Some of the strains I've found particularly beneficial have been Jack Herer, J1, Juicy Fruit,Tangie, as well as Super Lemon Haze, Skunk, and Amnesia Haze to name a few. Something especially interesting I found, was within these strains are small commonalities, such as certain terpenes or cannabinoids present that are slightly geared more towards symptoms associated with gastric distress and many of these strains have a tendency to lean more towards the Sativa side of things.

Ra Hemp Capsules produced by Sun God Medicinals

As I looked deeper and deeper into the strains that have provided me with so much relief over the past few years I found the same terpene and cannabinoid names coming up over and over, and so the deeper my search went.. finally coming across these specific terpenes A-Pinene, B-Caryophyllene, Limonene, Linalool, Myrcene, and sometimes even Humulene.

 

 

 

 

1. *A-Pinene - Found in pine needles, accounts for the pine-like aroma. Known for its anti-Inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, is a bronchodilator,  and aids in memory retention.

2. ***B-Caryophyllene - Found in black peppercorns, cloves, basil, etc... accounts for the spicy floral notes. Known for its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, as well as its ability to protect the cells lining the digestive tract.

Vietnamese Black grown by Dicot Farms

3. ***Limonene - Found in many Citrus fruit and accounts for the sweet, tangy, citrusy aroma. Know for its anti-anxiety and antidepressant properties, as well as the ability to temporarily stave of the effects of gastric reflux by disrupting the serotonergic receptors associated with excitatory inflammation and stress transmission.

4. **Linalool - Found in lavender and Coriander, accounts for the sweet floral yet earthy notes. Known for its anticonvulsant and anti-anxiety properties, as well as its analgesic and anesthetic effects.

5. **Myrcene - Found in mangos, sweet basil, and hops, accounts for the musky earthy or funky tangy aromas. Known for its muscular relaxant and sedative properties, it has even been found to go as far as alleviating muscle spasms.

6.*Humulene - Found primarily in hops and accounts for that woodsy floral bite and spicy aroma. Known for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, as well as its ability to mimic the cannabinoid THC-V which suppresses appetite.

Pennywise grown by Dicot Farms

Gastrointestinal Disorders affect millions of people daily and can cause severely debilitating symptoms if left untreated or unattended to. Now research has become slightly more available and highly suggests that Cannabis is an effective treatment for many GI related issues because of how it interacts with a persons endogenous cannabinoid receptors found within the digestive tract. Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease - Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease, Gastric Reflux, and Digestive Disorders are all ailments Cannabis has been found to alleviate.

 

So if you are someone fighting a battle with stomach issues, I highly recommend taking a look at this article as well; it has a more in-depth look into how Cannabis interacts with a person's endocannabinoid receptors.

Taking The Hit: A Poem ~ In The Moonlight 🌕🌖🌗🌘🌑🌒🌓🌔

In the light of the moon,
You were my friend.
Swirling, whirling fog all around,
With a crisp nip you did ascend,
Floating, floating up from down.

Breaking silence to inhale,
Joy and wonder fill me still.
Gentle, gentle did I exhale,
Tension fading, leaving me real.

Peace fills and anger fades,
As you loose yourself in wonder.
Gaze upon the moons rays,
With the stars above, you lay under.

Taking The Hit: Hemp Wick

Hemp wick is hands-down AMAZING and is the superior way to combust anything let alone cannabis! 

Personally, I prefer to use RAW® Hemp Wick most because they are not only a highly reputable company when it comes to smoking accessories, but they pride themselves in only using eco friendly, sustainable, and locally sourced renewable resources in the products they sell. Due to this, they ONLY use 2 ingredients in creating their RAW hemp wick:

  1. Top quality European sourced Hemp (naturally locally grown without any use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers)
  2. Beeswax (our only supplier is the president of the Polish Association of Beekeepers. He previously worked for the Queen of England as the main beekeeper and is a true believer in holistic natural beekeeping.)

With hemp wick you can truly taste every hit until your last, no more burnt chemical taste or harshness, no more roasting the bowl on the first or second hit. It's time to start enjoying what you're smoking without worrying about inhaling any lingering fumes from your typical lighter. 

Most lighters now a days are filled with a type of butane or naphtha depending on the style of lighter --- Butane is a highly flammable, colorless, easily liquefied gas used in gas-type lighters and butane torches; because of this style of lighter most butane is burnt off during the initial burst of flame as you begin combustion, but there have been known to be small amounts of lingering gas inhaled with smaller flamed butane lighters --- Naphtha is a volatile flammable liquid hydrocarbon mixture used in wick-type lighters and burners; because these types of lighters fluid sits as a liquid at room temperature more vapor is released when using them and therefore a slightly higher amount of lingering gas is inhaled during combustion.
 

[Although no true study has been done to prove without a doubt that the small traces of gas lingering in the air when used to combust cannabis will cause health issues later on in life, it is still highly recommended by most alternative physicians that an alternative method of combustion be used to avoid any potential health risks.]


Other than the slight health concerns associated with gas/fluid based lighters, taste is the other BIG factor to consider. With most generic over the counter lighters the first few hits taste good, but sometimes cornering those hits for a more enjoyable longer lasting bowl is harder to do and depending on the Brand the flame itself can be short and tiny or HUGE and torch-like; where with hemp wick, your flame is maintainable and precise. You can corner any hit with ease as EVERY inhale is just as tasty as the last. All you need for easy access is to wrap it snuggly around your daily lighter [some even come made in lighter sleeves] and whenever you need it just light, inhale, and remember to put out your flame after each use to avoid fire hazards.

Taking The Hit Double Feature: Marshmallow Bon-Bons from Junk by Leif Goods

We doing a double feature of reviews today for the Marshmallow Bon-Bons one written by Megz, and a second by Anaeka. 

Marshmallow Bon-Bons by Junk

JUNK it up! by Megz

Closely affiliated to Leif Goods and Physic Balm comes a new JUNK line, so let's talk about their JUNK.

Currently at both of The Agrestic's we have these tiny little amazing-tasting Vegan chocolate covered marshmallow bon-bon's. Every box comes with 6 deliciously infused salted chocolate covered marshmallows. According to the Suggested Servings listed on the back of the box, a consumer should start at a low dose of just ½ a marshmallow [and while some find this to be the perfect dose, I had to eat a bit more]. 

After consuming two full bon-bon's, what I had noticed the most was the salt and chocolate fusion. I absolutely LOVED the salty bits mixed directly into the cannabis infused chocolate, as well as the fluffy lightness of the marshmallow itself. I then sat watching TV and doing random things about my house, after a solid hour I began to notice some effects taking on. I was relaxed to the core and to be honest a bit sleepy [as deep relaxation usually send me to sleep] but I was able to keep my composure and finished my tasks before settling on the couch for the rest of the night.

Marshmallow Bon-Bons from Junk

Marshmallow Bon-Bon-Appetit by Anaeka


I had a sore throat recently, and the last thing I want to do with a sore throat is smoke flower or extracts and exacerbate the problem area. I bought these Marshmallow Bon-Bons not just because I wanted an edible to have a fun time with, but because I knew that they could also soothe my sore throat at the same time. The Marshmallow Bon-Bons come in a pack of six, with a total of 40.7mg THC and 56.3mg CBD. Junk is a subdivision of Leif Medicinals, and edibles from Leif  are interesting because they are made with full extract cannabis oil (FECO, also known as RSO). The cannabis in these edibles is only found in the outer chocolate layer, and to me, had no chlorophyll or plant-like flavor to it. The outer-shell of the Bon-Bons tasted like a high quality dark chocolate.  There was a surprising saltiness to the Bon-Bons as they are sprinkled with chocolate salt and the savory quality of the salt mixed with the slight bitterness of the dark chocolate provided a good balance to the sweet marshmallow filling. The marshmallow was a delicious creamy flavor, and seemed denser than a traditional marshmallow that you would buy from the store for making Smores.

The recommended dose is half a marshmallow, but knowing that I have a higher tolerance of about 25 to 30mg THC I ate half of a pack of the Bon-Bons. After about an hour the effects of the Bon-Bons started to kick in for me and it took another hour for the high to fully creep in. I  reached a very comfortable high that lasted for another two or three hours. The first thing I noticed as the high set in was that my throat no longer hurt when I swallowed. In fact I felt terrific, like I wasn't sick at all. A warmth spread over my face and chest, and I had a good body buzz tingling on my forearms and across my face. I felt very goofy and happy, and had a great time watching a movie with my partner. I loved these so much that I bought a second pack the next day, not only is it a tasty treat, but a great high to boot.

Taking The Hit: Chai Awakening Tea and Honey Sticks from Bud Brothers Apothecary

Chai Awakening Tea and Honey Stick from Bud Brother's Apothecary

Chai Awakening Tea and Honey Stick from Bud Brother's Apothecary

The first morning of my late August camping trip began with a Big HOT cup of Bud Brothers CBD tea. I was genuinely surprised by what I found. I added one of Bud Brother's CBD Honey sticks and the Chai tea bag to some boiled water, and let it steep for a solid 5 minutes. After a splash of Hazelnut creamer, my drink was ready! (I mostly bought this specific tea to help me deal with being with my ENTIRE family for the next 5 days.)

The tea tasted just like a regular Chai would, no trace amounts of cannabis lingered in the flavor, but you can easily pick up on the notes of cinnamon and vanilla that complemented the warm taste of sweet honey. After about 45 minutes, I felt completely at ease, like I was floating above any tension, and was probably the least stressed I had been the whole trip. Once we finished our breakfast, we spent the rest of the day hiking up viewing trails and walking the beaches near Sunset Bay Park. It was very relaxing and I honestly kept that peacefulness with me for the better part of the day, and even experienced a very restful sleep that night.
