Charlie Sheen OG from RedEye Releaf

April 9, 2015

Charlie Sheen may not be the cool superstar that he used to be, but the memory of his younger, vibrant self still lives on in Charlie Sheen OG, a social strain with a long-lasting high. It’s the the kind of bud you’d expect to find living it up on the shores of Malibu, and we got ours from the always-impressive RedEye Releaf.

 The nug reeked like a spicy kush, tending to the chemmy side but certainly in a pleasant way. It wore a subtle purple hue and was covered in both dense crystal and blood orange hairs. Cracked open, the…

Juicy BubbleGum OG Shatter

April 9, 2015

The combination of Bubble Gum and Juicy Fruit (Fruity Juice) is the recipe for any sweet-toothed cadet, if not for the exotic, soaring effects, then at least for a taste that strikes you like ripping open a pouch of Big League Chew™. BubbleGum has been refined over the years to capture that exact palate, matched with head-in-clouds-high, and Juicy Fruit is the mouth-watering union of pure Afghani and Thai genetics in a quintessential hybrid. So you can imagine how pumped we were to sample a shatter version of the strain from Karmaceuticals, albeit with some OG thrown in for good…

StarBarz from Dr. J's

April 9, 2015

Edible: Cherry Cheesecake StarBarz from Dr. J's (also comes in Dark Chocolate, Milk Crispies, and White Chocolate Raspberry)

Hands down, the Star Barz were tempting from the start. Dr. J’s uses some beautiful futuristic packaging - still very childproof -- but inside is the mouth-watering chocolate. Pulling out the creamy white bars, speckled with red cherries--we felt like kids at the candy store, enjoying a gourmet feast. And at 80mg, or eight 10mg servings, the candy bar was conveniently enough to split between two of our heavyweight critics for the ultimate test of potency.

 It broke apart cleanly, magnifying the…

Purple Cotton from Chronic Therapy

April 9, 2015

Maybe it’s Purple Cotton’s diverse heritage that lends to its broad range of tastes and effects: you have all the signatures genetics and effects from Kush and Afghani landraces behind Purple Kush, juxtaposed upon the remarkably delicious global medley forming Cotton Candy’s lineage. Chronic Therapy supplied a delectable sample that delivered the entire spectrum we hoped for, from the full-body bliss to its lip-smacking sweetness.

The taste alone was enough to recommend from the start: the combination of genetics amounted to the spicy dark roast of spun sugar, pungent and intense. It was followed by second and third notes: berry…

Blue OG from Medibis

April 9, 2015

Every now and then, a strain emerges that has you scratching your head - why hasn’t anyone else thought of that? So it is with the nonchalant cross of the popular strains Blueberry and OG Kush; Blue OG is ultimately the match-making cadet’s way of saying, “We finally got those two together.”

 Our specimen came in from Medibis, a quiet and dark bud, ruminating with spice from tiny pine cone clusters. The grind extracted some berry hues, with the musky sweet aroma of bellflowers. The taste was true to blueberry, but dried blueberry at that. We loaded a tall bowl…

Chunky D from Buddies Wellness

January 17, 2015

Chunky D is not just a diesel; it is a hybrid of polar extremes, the pure indica Deep Chunk and the invigorating sativa Sour Diesel. Both have distinctive hallmarks each to their own, exciting to witness right off the bat from our sample from Buddies Wellness. Dark, she wore splotches of indigo amidst mysterious green clusters of leaves, and full reddish beard. The bud was sweet and sugary, with the botanical tart of the Deep Chunk pine, musky spice and all. Her palate was woody, even like caramel chocolate.

  From the first go, our heads skyrocketed into a spacy fog…

The Wookies #1 from A Cut Above

January 17, 2015

In almost every issue we critique a strain bearing a moniker from Star Wars lore. Many celebrate the recognized icons like Skywalker and Death Star, while nerdier ganja gurus go for alien strains like Ewok, Chewbacca, and the aptly-named Ponda Baba. So we were excited to introduce ourselves to Wookie--signature bud from A Cut Above--and a furry, plump specimen with dark hues like eggplant, all shimmering in frost. “She was like a crystallized ginger tree with caramel tentacles,” wrote one critic. “Her aromas reminded me of sweet coffee and crisp air on a snowy morning.”

  Wookie’s high was romantic and…

Lemon Skunk Wax from Colorado Extract Company

January 17, 2015

Circulating around the state’s extract market these days is the new medical-company Colorado Extract Company (CEC), fresh on the menu but certainly not strangers to process. The company takes a proud artisan approach: they are best known for their fresh frozen, hand-trim water hash. Our sample, from the Lemon Skunk strain, carried the fresh, salubrious look of sun-bleached brown sugar in tiny crumbles. Within the jar lingered notes of grape soda, while the sample itself revealed a creamy-tart bouquet of cowberry and orange.

  On the editor’s sampling table were both rig and vapor pen - she puffed smoothly either way…

Sweet Tooth from Red Eye Releaf

January 17, 2015

An exotic melange of worldy tastes, Sweet Tooth combines the Afghan desert, Nepali highlands and Hawaiian tropics to produce an unforgettable, award winning-hybrid and suitable staple in any strain repertoire. She last won the High Times Cup just after the turn of the millenium, but still stays a dependable favorite on the market--with notable quality coming from Red Eye Relief.

  Our sample was bearded in red, crystal-covered and meaty but not leafy. Her aroma was a mixture boysenberry and citrus, with bud’s signature attribute of sugary perfume. Smoked, the taste was more floral, pine, slightly earthy “but not dirty--more alive…

Chai High Tea from Keen Greens

January 17, 2015

Never in our history of reviewing edibles have we felt compelled to invoke the White Rabbit in any reviews - but that changed when Chai High Iced Tea came to town. Even those who avoid iced tea will want to try this one, if not for the delusional and utterly fantastic experience. No other “extreme” version of any Colorado beverage has the both mega-cannabinoids (~317 total mg in this case) and such actual punch. It might not conjure dreams of talking caterpillars or flamingo croquet, but that all depends on how much you drink.

  The combination, palate-wise, was a sort…
