If you’re fairly familiar, you may be aware of how much the world of weed has changed in the last few years. The shift in public interest has led to exciting new products and methods of consumption! From BHO to brownies, there’s a lot to consider when purchasing your pot.
Luckily for you, I’m here to help! My name is Gabrielle, and on my YouTube channel Toke About It, my pursuit is to meet you (the consumer) with your marijuana match!
In my first video, peruse Seattle’s CannaCon 2016 with me! CannaCon is the nation’s largest canna-biz trade show, chock-full of booths representing every aspect of the industry. From the event’s conception in 2014, the number of attendees and exhibitors has skyrocketed!
If you have something specific for me to toke about, leave it in the comments!
Recently I picked up a couple grams of Blue Dream caviar by Liberty Reach. I picked up this 2g package for $75 at Hashtag Cannabis in Seattle. First thing that comes to anyone’s mind- “holy shit, $75 for 2g’s!”. Which, let’s be honest, is an acceptable reaction. If you’re not familiar with what cannabis caviar is, let me do a quick explanation. Caviar, though it may go by other names, is essentially a flowered marijuana bud that has been dipped in THC oil, then rolled in trichomes (kief). The name should make a bit more sense now.
Admittedly this is my first time purchasing or even smoking caviar. I’m a big fan of hash and other concentrates, but was having a hard time stomaching the cost. After months of waiting I finally sprung for some. And let me be completely honest when I say I absolutely love it! My first attempt I pinched a piece off and threw it straight into my pipe. As is, the burn characteristics are what you’d expect from hash. It melts fast and is difficult to put out as it continues to burn. This first go had me in la-la land on my front porch. I couldn’t even talk when the neighbor walked by to grab his mail from the box on the street.
Because it was dipped in oil, then rolled in kief, it doesn’t have the same touch as hash would. It took on the characteristics like a warm chocolate chip before it really melts. It pulled off nicely and is very pliable. With that being said, I started to treat it like hash. I would pull a piece off, form it into my desired shape, and place on top of another bowl. This I found to be an amazing combination for everything but productivity. Extreme body high and absolutely zero fucks will be given after you’ve ingested some of this. I would highly recommend this for experienced smokers that are looking to go to the moon. Novice smokers proceed with caution.
Snoops Blue Dream by Cinc O Dos is another one I’ve tried in the past. Multiple times actually. I’ve tried this strain from other growers in the past as well with similar results. After asking the budtender at Hashtag Cannabis if they had any in stock, this was the first fat nugget he pulled out. A quick visual inspection and I could tell she was awfully dense and covered in trichomes. I was also picking up some caviar as well, and adding this to my purchase was a no brainer.
Snoops Blue Dream is a Sativa dominant hybrid that tips the scales on the heavy side of the THC scale. Especially compared to a lot of what’s available in the i502 segment. This batch contains 24.64% total cannabinoids, very little being CBD. This gram set me back $16 including taxes, in the middle of Seattle- legally. You can’t complain much about that.
Now a days with so many options in states like Washington and Colorado, we are capable of finding buds that suit each individual and their needs nicely. If you read my blog on Blueberry Cheesecake, you know I’ve got a few favorites that are typically in my cabinet. Snoops Blue Dream is another. Honestly I had never tried it until I moved to Seattle a few months ago. You can tell by the picture below that it is a beautifully dense flower, this one with some peanut butter colored hairs mixed into some frosty green. This bag didn’t have a particularly strong sent- until I cracked open the bud. Smells strongly of blueberry and sweet sweet sticky weed. The nugget pulled apart nicely creating a perfectly sized bowl for one. An amazing cure, I lost count of how many times it hit, but kept on hitting hard. The stone is strong but not over powering to the point I’m unable to write this. A great day time bud for sure, and I’m looking forward to a wake and bake tomorrow before the NW Cannabis Classic.
Stopped by The Novel Tree in Bellevue to pickup a gram of Indica for before bed. I’m a big fan of the Gods Gift strain. And I have purchased Gods Gift by Raven Grass in the past. Beautiful little fruity pebble looking nugs.
Dense with a subtle smell of something like a dried plum or raisin. Pulling apart the buds release a bit of a stronger smell, yet still very subtle and not overwhelming. Delicious smoke as you’d expect from anything in the OG Kush family.
This is one of my favorites to smoke at the end of the day when I literally intend to do a whole lot of jack shit. The high is somewhat strong in a relaxing sort of way. Definitely not something for the day time. Even though I’m able to write this after smoking a couple bowls, my time running from the sandman is running out. I definitely recommend picking up some of this if it’s at your local shop.
Crouching Tiger Hidden Alien by Secret Gardens of Washington
Yesterday I stopped by The Novel Tree in Bellevue to pick up a few goodies. One thing I picked up was a gram of Crouching Tiger Hidden Alien by Secret Gardens of Washington. Catching the name of this and it’s hard not to be curious. Seeing it was the highest THC % Indica on the list, obviously I was gonna grab some.
Initially it looks like something in my grandma’s medicine cabinet. I really enjoy the packaging and it’s a sweet little nug jug that I’ll hang on to. I only wish There were some more numbers on the label. CBD and THC-A breakdown never hurts.
Contrary to the higher rating, I wouldn’t consider it to be “dick in the dirt” weed. Though it is a memorably great smelling flower. Very attractive, well trimmed, dense nuggets that I enjoy pulling apart into the perfect bowl size. Damage was under $20 for the gram after taxes, but I’m very pleased with this and will likely try again. I plan to throw some hash on a bowl after I’m done writing. I should be asleep before 10 this Friday night.
