Strain Review: 9 Pound Hammer

Strains
Recently, I tried a strain I hadn't actually heard much about before. I told my caregiver that I needed something that was more of an indica because I was having more back pains than usual.

But, like anything new, it does not come without some backwards steps. Colorado recreational cannabis sales have already exceeded 2014 totals, setting the financial table for another record-shattering year of state revenue. But the record numbers have a downside. Even at $13.6M raised by May of 2015, the revenue still may not reach the $40M prediction used to convince voters to approve Amendment 64 way back in 2012.
