Slurricane from Doctor's Orders

February 22, 2020

Growing in popularity these days is the very stony Slurricane, the spurious offspring of Do-Si-Dos and Purple Punch that can fiercely put you in your place. Sometimes you just need to get four straight hours of medicated bliss from your joint, and this is the flower to do it. Our selection, provided by Doctor’s Orders, fit the mold well, not only in its relaxing pain relief but in flavor, potency, and sheer size. 

   The nugs were gigantic, bright with splotches of purple, and groomed like well-trimmed shrubs. “Glistening like fresh snowfall" with fiery hairs “out of control,” critics were taken…

Gorilla Glue #4 x Do-Si-Dos from AOM

February 22, 2020

Frankly, the combination of the resinous, sticky Gorilla Glue with anything --especially the mega-sedating Do-Si-Do--is a recipe for a couch-bound trip through time. Like a frosted cookie, you’ll come to know this cross by its strong indica effects and spicy flavor putting you at ease--if not, into a total trance--all with a delirious smile pasted on your face. If you’ve been lately been asking, “how ‘bout we take the day off?” then this hybrid is the Cameron Frye to your Ferris Bueller. 

   Our sample from AOM was expertly-grown. She was a spongy “salad of mixed greens” with thick orange hairs…

Punch Breath from Epic Remedy

February 22, 2020

There are simple breeds and crosses in this world--and then there’s strains like Punch Breath, whose place on the cannabis family tree is way up at the top where so many other branches converge. Given how widely the plant can vary, we were excited to find an unwieldy Punch Breath harvest nearby at The Epic Remedy. Sure, it might conjure long periods of amused staring -- but can literally decimate any type of pain, and keep it at bay for hours.

   Green like a “1970s shag carpet” our sample nuggets were tight and tidy, covered in feather-like wisps of cinnamon-colored…

Garlicane from Oasis/AZ Nectar

November 22, 2019

A name can mean everything or nothing about a strain, which got us deeply pondering when this huge sample nug came our way from Oasis in Phoenix. As a moniker, “Garlicane” is so specific that we just had to see how well it lived up to its name. And live, it did. An amalgamation of GMO Cookies and Slurricane, this mutant is essentially an immense variety of hybrids and landraces squeezed into a complex lineage, all coming together in a well-rounded but heavy indica that satisfies both ends of the spectrum. 

   The selection resembled Wonderland-grown cloves. The nugs were pleasantly…

Punch Breath from La Bodega

November 22, 2019

Punch Breath takes the concept of the purple flower to the next level, thanks to a complex lineage that delivers bits and pieces from all over the globe. The essence not just typical berry, but carries a sugary-tartness, with spicy vanilla musk. It’s not just purple, but wears glimmering shades from pink to blue. It’s not just a narcotic indica stone, but one that carries with it all the far-out weirdness you’d want from a balanced hybrid. It’s just...better. 

   Our shimmering nugs from La Bodega were solid and spongy, with a whole technicolor assortment of frosty hues like a handful…

Sizzurp from Doctor's Orders

November 22, 2019

Sometimes you need an indica that won’t immediately subdue you into oblivion - why not get the functionality you need while your pain relief is in full swing! One flower that makes that work is Sizzurp, a connoisseur’s strain that combines the joyful euphoria of GSC child Cookies and Cream with the Bubba Kush-derived Spirit in the Sky, all tied together in a fruity, spastic yet relaxed melange. We received our sample from Doctor's Orders and excitedly sat down late afternoon, with to-do list in hand.

   The jar bubbled with a fruity essence that filled the room like a freshly…

Ecto Cooler from Three Rivers

November 22, 2019

You know that feeling where you “think” you’re flying through life during a stone, and don’t realize you’re still cruising over in the slow lane? That’s a good way to describe the funky indica Ecto Cooler, a strain as cool as it sounds, with a heavy-hitting high that zaps the pain away all day long. It comes from parents East Coast Panama Chunk -- a strain that gets you through that long day without burnout -- and TK Stardawg, another mood-boosting, uplifting soar of a high. 

   Our bouquet from Three Rivers was dazzling. The buds were bushy and tight, holidazzling…

Dirty Taxi from Epic Remedy

November 22, 2019

Little is known about Dirty Taxi, a very obscure and unknown indica-leaning hybrid from Epic Remedy that allegedly comes from a cross of GMO (Cookies) and Chem I95. The combination of starry-eyed euphoria and social psychedelia--served with a doubled-down essence of sour, diesel fuel flavor-- will leave you stumbling, if not planted firm in one place, dissolved in a hypnosis, with focus and mind running adrift. In other words, on a taxi ride to the abyss. 

   Our sample buds were vibrant, bright and furry little morsels, heavy in our hands like dead-weights and coated with crystals “like ice gathering on…

Wizard Breath Raw Rosin from CEC using AOM Flower

November 22, 2019

Wizard Breath flower looks like it sounds. Combining the stinky Grandpa Breath and violet buds of Blissful Wizard, it’s a purple, iridescent gem that teems with skunky citrus and cream, and looks like the frozen breath of a winter warlock. Few carry its concentrate form, so we felt honored to sample the raw rosin processed by Colorado Extract Company (CEC), using Altitude Organic Medicine’s organic, top-shelf crop. 

   The specimen was amazingly crystal clear and smooth, like a delicate shaving of light golden butter. Nearly transparent (CEC recommends refrigeration until serving to keep that clarity), she was sticky at room temperature…

OGeez Gummies from Copia

September 17, 2019

The first thing you’ll immediately realize about Copia’s OGeez gummies, is that these aren’t just the best infused candies around--they are literally the best in the history of gummies (if anything you’ll have to fight the temptation to keep eating them)! These made-from-scratch, produced-to-order sweets are batched only when each dispensary makes an order, meaning they’re always fresh and juicy. Talk about giving Willy Wonka a run for his money.

We were excited to review the Orange Creamsicle flavor. Like other OGeez varieties (Watermelon, Tropical Mix and Raspberry Orange), the complex dichotomy on the palate was almost overshadowed by its…
