Strain Review: Cindy 99

Strains
Cindy 99 is a sativa-dominant hybrid that is known for a high THC count, dense nug structure, and sweet potent smell. Originally coming from seeds by breeders Brothers Grimm, Cindy 99 is said to be a cross of Sensi Star (typically a heavy, sleepy indica) and Jack Herer (a heady sativa dominant strain named for the famed grower and cannabis advocate), and can now be found in both recreational and medical marijuana dispensaries around the country crossed into other popular strains like Glass Slipper and Cindy White. Cindy 99 is great for an uplifting effect that tends to start as a head high and settle into an overall euphoric feeling that is great for pain relief without too much of a heavy, sleepy feeling. Sativa dominant strains can often run…

Harlequin and the Benefits of CBD

Strains
CBD (short for Cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid that has been proven to help with managing chronic pain, reducing inflammation, and work many other wonders (those who haven’t seen it should watch this video, one of many about the miracle power of CBD for those using it to combat the effects of epilepsy and other neurological disorders:) While just about anyone who is familiar with how marijuana works has heard of THC as the most active of the cannabinoids, CBD has only in the last few years gotten more attention thanks to several high profile reports. THC is the compound most responsible for the “head” high that most people seek; it is CBD that tends to do the most amount of work towards helping with pain relief and relaxation. The entire…

Strain Review: Blue Dream

Strains
Blue Dream is a hybrid sativa dominant strain of cannabis that every marijuana connoisseur needs to try at least once. A popular favorite both in Colorado marijuana dispensaries and around the world, Blue Dream is best known for its sweet smell and flavor, dense bud structure, and a strong, well balanced effect. Originally created by crossing the indica Blueberry strain with the always popular sativa Haze, a well grown Blue Dream will be the best of both worlds. The high THC content is great for an upbeat, stoney effect in the head, but the indica base provides a relaxing body high. While many popular marijuana strains tend to be very heavy one way or another, Blue Dream has a distinction as being a strain that will be uplifting without leaving…

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. That was when he suggested that I pick up this concentrate of something called 9 Pound Hammer. The concentrate itself was really dark, or brunette, if you will. It had a denser consistency, like brunettes tend to have. It reeked of diesel but also smelled a little sweet. It was one of the harshest smelling concentrates that I had ever smelled, but that is common for really good indicas, so I just took that as a good sign. After I smoked it, I immediately understood why it was called 9 Pound Hammer. It hit me…

Strain Review: Sour Grapes

Strains
Sour Grapes is a hybrid strain that is commonly confused with the strain Sour Grape. However, they are two entirely different strains. Sour Grapes is also sometimes called “Grape Stomper.” I have been seeing it all over the dispensaries lately, so I figured it was time to give it a try. I picked up some crumble, some shatter, and some bud, just to see how each one differed. The crumble and the bud smelled really strongly the second I opened the containers. It had the sharp scent of something incredibly sour—similarly to those sour sucking candies that, according to rumor, had to be reformulated because they were banned in the late 1990s. The buds' crystals were not as shimmery as those of a lot of plants, but it was sticky…
