Gotta Have Gotu Kola

This is one of my favorite herbs to have in the morning, and is a great plant to learn about. Naturally found in Sri Lanka, Australia, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Melanesia, New Guinea, and other parts of Asia – this herb enhances the mind.  Creativity, focus, increased memory, restorative cognitive ability, just name a few of…

London Pound Cake

I was blessed with a beautiful sample by the brethren Tesfa and was thoroughly impressed by this London Pound Cake from beginning to end. This delicious daughter is one of the latest breeds from the iconic Cookies brand and she does not disappoint. Her berry sweet floral funk and dense purple frosty nugs are high…

Punished by Poison Cake

Poison Cake is an exclusive cut gifted to me by the good folks at @harambeecakesco. Little did I know, Poison wasn’t just a shoutout to its Durban Poison Grandmother…it’s because this bud will sit you down and knock you out. I had a nice dense frosty purple nug that broke down into just enough to…

I Like LA Chocolat

I tried a gram of LA Chocolat on sale from the fine folks at Metropolitan Wellness. I’m kind of late returning to the chocolate strains. For some reason, that smell or rather – those terpenes don’t speak to my heart (or my nose). However, due to my profession I must try everything in the name…

Lovely Lemon Cookies

I mean first of all…just look at it. When you go to a DC dispensary, ask to see a sample. Its a beautifully grown specimen of cannabis sativa. Abatin shows off with the gorgeous huge, dense, frosty, sticky buds. The light lemon smell that surrounds the cookie earthy funk was a pleasant indicator of the…

Mugwort

Mugwort is one of the ingredients in lucid dream tea and I also use it in dream pillows. I was very surprised in doing research for this herb to see the high presence of linalool, myrcene, pinene, and borneol. I’m excited to create herbal enhanced tinctures for specific medicinal benefits and take cannabis treatments to a…

New Favorite: New Dream

Currently, this is the best smelling flower out on the market. Its a unique profile I’ve never encountered before, and every person that smells and tastes it says the same thing. She is full of so many terps this Blue Dream variant is aptly named. Prominent presence of ocimene, pinene, limonene, and myrcene rush your…

All about THC

When I give my 2min crash course on cannabis consumption, I use alcohol as a metaphor so people can understand the myriad of nuances that occur on an individual basis. If cannabis were compared to alcohol, THC would be likened to the alcohol percentage. If you were to go in a liquor store, and the…

Sensei Master Kush

This cultivar is currently available at area dispensaries, but this review is a throwback of when I first fell in love with Master Kush. I was working as a sound engineer at Cramton Auditorium, doing a load-in for The Roots Band. The road manager pulled me aside and quietly asked, “Do you know where I…

Ocimene

This terpene is my favorite Sunflower line (produced by Abatin) and is another important note in the flowers I choose to deal with my anxiety and depression. As soon as you smell this floral sweet aroma you are immediately relaxed and happy. Ocimene is rarely the most dominant terpene in commonly found cultivars, but its presence…
