Chill Cherry Chem

New on the market this week, Cherry Chem made it to my backwood as it passed the look and smell test. Of the three loud packs I got (Layer Cake, Lotus Head and this) its the last one I tasted. But she is certainly not the least. The fruity, diesel, floral bouquet is a combination…

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…

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…

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…

Terpinolene

Terpinolene is responsible for that bright piney smell that accompanies well known strains such as Trainwreck and Jack Herer. Research notes its antibiotic, anti-oxidant, and anti-cancer properties as well as its ability to be a sedative. This terpene is the one that made me truly study the individual reactions a person has to specific strains….

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…

Myrcene

Myrcene is one of the first terpenes I teach about when I do my cannabis lecture series. Its found in over 75% of known and tested breeds of cannabis. By now, many have heard that eating mangoes can boost your cannabis high. There is in fact truth to this, if you eat a mango or…

Caryophellene

Low key, this is everyone’s favorite terpene. Everyone that loves the loud. Its the most identifying smell when someone is looking for something that will get them high. And by “high” I mean lifted til their head is in the clouds. Floating. Its funky and earthy and spicy. Its the first note in the complex…

Limonene

My third favorite terpene is Limonene for its mood lifting capabilities. Its another psychosomatic relationship that humans have always known about citrus. Just the smell of a fresh peeled orange, a juicy spoonful of sugary grapefruit, a splash of lemon or lime juice immediately brings images of fresh awakening to the mind. This oil is…

Pinene

This is my favorite terpene. Its ability to give me a calm focus helps me to operate at maximum efficiency in everything I do. This terp has been present during the writing of my greatest hits and some of my best performances. Its the reason why I am so passionate about patients understanding cannabis and…
