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…

Feeling Face on Fire

The title alone had me very curious to see how this flower would have me feeling. These cultivar titles are really great marketing lol. I couldn’t smell her from a jar, but when I was able to smell a strong whiff from the bag, I was exited to find out how she would taste and…

Cool Casper OG

Nowadays everybody slaps OG on the end of the name and I’ve grown to sort of roll my eyes at anything named as such that didn’t actually come from the northwestern part of California.  That being said, it was a while before I worked my way to trying out Casper OG.  Smelling her out of…

Wild for LA Wookies

Of the 3 new ladies shown to me by my best buds at Herbal Alternatives, this one was the loudest of them all. Her pungent funk lets you know that its about to get all loud all wild ASAPtually. The trademark big dense buds are here in this DC grown offering from the farmers at…

Blazing Blueberry Haze

I was curious to try the other Blueberry varieties in the DC market so I picked up some Blueberry Haze from the folks at National Holistic. Quite an interesting flower. Totally different from the fruity Classic Blueberry – there isn’t anything sweet about this funky flower. Very dense yet fluffy nugs give you extra volume…

Surprised by Sweet Thang

I chose this flower randomly while smelling all the fruity flowers Herbal Alternatives had to offer last Friday. What interested me was the fact that a gram was definitely going to get 2 jays and of course I was loving the fruity, lemon, funky smell she had to offer. Rolled her up and she did…

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…

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…

Climbing Mountain Temple

This bud came recommended by the owner of Herbal Alternatives, Jen herself. If you know her, you know she is very careful with her words. Usually when I ask for the weekly picks, she tells me what customers like. This was her first personal recommendation. When I finish writing this blog, I owe her a…
