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…

High AF off OG Haze

Ok, ya’ll we have a winner winner chicken dinner. Issa 5 star bud. Well, I may not give it a full 5 stars on the nose of it, because while it is funky its not the funkiest bud. In fact, it was one of the last flowers I tasted as I made my rounds with…

Going Goji OG

I first tried this flower many years ago, and I was not impressed. But, after seeing someone ask for this flower each and every time I was at any and every dispensary in the city I finally decided to give it another try. I usually am not swayed by what people ask for, it takes…

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…

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…

Smoking Sweet and Sour Sherbet

First pause for the super high cause of me looking up Sherbet vs Sherbert. LoL man, the more you know. Anyways, back to the subject at hand. This new release from the good folks at Abatin Wellness Center is a solid bud. Just enough terpinolene to lift you up takes a piney spin on Sunset…

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….

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…

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…

Orangeade in the Morning

I’ve seen many people asking for Orangeade at all the dispensaries so I decided to give it a try. She is a bountiful flower that easily filled a backwood with a nice bud leftover. Her fruity orange filled aroma came through well as she smoked with a nice funky feel with every pull. I was…
