Cannabis Daily — Purple Goo


PURPLE GOO (Indica)
from Solimar Farms distributed by Headwaters
Genetics: Afghani Goo x Purple Kush

Every time I see the name purple, I think about the purple weed craze. Indica, heavy, and will fuck you up are some of the terms users want to see. But purple weed isn’t always good — in terms of nutrition and growth.

I want my nugs to be green (visually) with some orange hairs that smoke really well. PG seems to fit all of that.

APPEARANCE

Headwaters’ Purple Goo is purely green with orange hairs and medium sized stems.  The nugs aren’t as chocked full of trichomes — typical mid grow — but when broken it’s crispy and sticky all at the same time.

SMELL

Purple Goo smells minty and floral all at the same time. There were hints of sour berry smell after the herbal notes kicked in.

TASTE

As is, PG tastes sweet and flowery like a white tea. It has some powdery, chalky tinge to it like a Flintstone vitamin.

Combusted, PG’s piney notes flourish but quickly dissipate to the normal, bitter notes smoking gives the user.

EFFECTS

Positive — it calms the nerves. I wasn’t really as affected by it but my husband seemed to enjoy it. His sleep was good all throughout the night.

Negative — I didn’t get affected as much. But it was a calm experience with no hints of dry eye or cotton mouth.

The Stoner Currently Vol. 4

smoking Purple Goo from Headwaters bought from Eaze.
rolling on some Backwoods. The stout ones are easier to roll because they’re pretty sticky and don’t need licking.
craving for an adventure. Maybe another run at Moon Gate or something that will make me skinny.
reading an article called From “The Hatred of Poetry” by Ben Lerner
writing some notes on Paradise Lost but I guess I’m reading the Iliad now after getting really mad at the Netflix series Troy: Fall of a City. More notes shall appear and possibly drafting something for my UX / UI project.
listening to the fan and Arvo Paart play alongside each other. I know, I am kind of an uppity cretin.
thinking of things to put on my unfinished UX/ UI project. I planned on doing some UX Sketch exercises because I really like doodling and using diagrams.
smelling my hand. They smell like Rice Krispies.
wearing a white shirt and leggings. I’m watching The Office while wearing it.
loving how I calmed down and learned to accept my failures. I saw a cheesy quote on IG that said success isn’t about hustling — it’s taking your time and giving yourself rest, etc.
feeling hungry, as usual.

The Stoner Currently Vol. 3

smoking some Zkittlez and J-1. I really like the high from this and recently someone on IG asked me to try some Mochi. I love it when people suggest things for me to smoke.
rolling on Jucy J’s because sometimes sweet tasting paper is what you need. Blunts are also good. I love blunts.
craving for new strains to smoke. Something fruity and sweet. Maybe I want some Birthday Cake or Turtle Pie too.
reading an article about Kierkegaard and some user experience articles.
writing a post on my main blog and wondering if people really follow recipes. I don’t follow recipes, tbh. I barely have any of the ingredients anyway and most of the time recipes don’t come out right the second or third time.
listening to my husband talk to his friends while playing video games.
thinking that maybe I should try dabbing. Maybe I’ll get over the fact that I am addicted to tasting flower and not the high.
smelling my hair. I have nothing to smell so I smelled my hair.
wearing a black v-neck shirt and boyshorts with rose prints on them.
loving the idea that I can work on projects now.
feeling hungry and anxious. I think I need to eat something since I haven’t eaten a lot. Also, it might be the caffeine from drinking too much Dutch Bros.

One Big Slew of Bad Trips

I thought I wasn’t going to smoke weed again.

Last year, we went to this dispensary because of an IG post about a farmers market. I wasn’t really interested in buying their weed since the charm was in the stalls. But after Prop 64 passed and the unavailability of certain permits and permissions hindered their activities, my husband and I decided to try them out and purchased 5 different strains – a gram ( est. $27 per gram) – and one CBD weed.

Now, I want to say that I’d been smoking since I was 15 yrs. old and the only time I had one bad experience was from an edible I took back in college. I’m not a reckless person when it comes to being medicated because I take this as medicine and I’m not just a stoner with a medical recommendation.

Prior to smoking, my mood was very positive. Afterwards the feelings ranged from anxiety with an awful headache to feeling weak and drained with really dry eyes.

I smoke flower because I have crippling anxiety.

People say that good weed makes you cough. The truth is good weed shouldn’t make you cough. All 4 of the non-cbd strains I took made my throat hurt.

I did make a Yelp! review. The response was a slight apology and questioning if I had been taking higher doses. They were courteous enough to let me talk to their general manager and suggested, perhaps, that I try vaping.

The truth? Most vapes, unless they’re from SC Labs, give me headaches because of a lack in THC. Of course I couldn’t reply because Yelp!’s platform was shi… well, it’s Yelp! —

Either way, I believe in the dispensary’s responsibility but I won’t be coming back to buy the weed.

 

Stoner Currently vol. 2

smoking a blend of weed I had left over from the past week. Sometimes it’s inevitable to just have a bunch of left over weed when you run a cannabis daily project.
rolling on some Raw Papers and Trip papers. I prefer the cellophane ones because you can taste the cannabis better.
craving for some Koko Nuggz. Those things are seriously addicting and they taste so good. I can’t even.
reading random articles on the internet – like poetry – because it’s been a long time and I just need to retrain myself into liking it so I can write it. Seriously.
writing some new articles for the blog I’m contributing to. I don’t have any new material so I guess I’ll just review some weed looking non-edibles.
listening to the fan. It’s really hot here and I’m seriously feeling that I need to sleep. I was listening to some glam rock an hour ago.
thinking that I should just finish my portfolio and stop watching Cheers because Diane is really annoying. I hate the episodes where Sam and her try to hookup.
smelling the outside world. It smells like fire place and it’s nice and cozy. I wish we used ours but we don’t because Filipinos are kind of cheapasses. Lol! I’m talkin’ ‘bout you, mom!
wearing a shirt and pajama bottoms.
loving the fact that I’m not loving anything right now. But hey, I am loving the progress I’m trying to make with my portfolio.
feeling annoyed and hopeless. Please. Just please. Let something good happen this week. I just really need this to get out of this place.

When to Smoke Your Weed

It’s hard to admit that I have a lot of weed. Not because I’m a hoarder… Yes, because I’m a hoarder. And my mistakes were based on the necessity that I had to find a way to store my weed and consume each strain chronologically. Do I put dates on the weed I buy? Yes. Do I store them accordingly? Yes.

How did I make my medicine last?

I went to the internet and googled “weed storage solutions” and from there I bought what I had to buy.  The steps are simple — 1) find an airtight container 2) keep it away from sunlight. Easy, right?

Not really because some meds have better packaging than others. So the saying, ‘smoke as you buy’ is a truth I had come to realize. And from my experience, I’m listing the best to worst containers cannabis come in —

GLASS JARS – A glass jar with a tint, wrapped, and with a seal is the perfect container for holding weed. It stays fresh for a very long time. The jars also come in handy just in case you want to put other things in them (like joints, lighters, spices, erasers, etc).

AIRTIGHT PLASTIC PACKETS – Since they’re resealable and are actually airtight, your weed can last for months staying in there. The THC doesn’t evaporate quickly as most people would expect from such common containers.

Odd enough, Ziplocks are as good.

POP TOP / PILL BOTTLES – If you like the smell of plastic mixed with your weed, go ahead. But these, I find, are the worst containers ever. These are definitely for people that smoke as they purchase because I’ve tried 3 different dispensaries that sell their nice smelling, frosty buds in those containers and after a few months the smell fades and the quality deteriorates really fast.

The solution for this is to find an old glass jar or buy a hermetically sealed ma jar from Target or Amazon and stuff your weed in there.

Happy smoking!

Cannabis Daily — Platinum Scooby Snacks

Screen Shot 2018-03-07 at 12.33.59 AM
PLATINUM SCOOBY SNACKS
from Humboldt Farms
Genetics: Platinum Girl Scout Cookies x Face Off OG
Hybrid / THC 22 %
Available for purchase on Eaze – Discontinued

When I was new to this country, nobody told me that there was a world beyond Eaze. And I ran into the website by accident because I was looking for employment. Back then, when they still had their own bud, Humboldt Farms was one of their fancy weeds along with Butter Brand — since they were in jars. And Humboldt Farms, being cheaper, was one of my go-tos.

From a measly three strains, after the great fires of NorCal, Eaze expanded their selection and I was hellbent on trying most of them.

Platinum Scooby Snacks comes from PGSC and Face Off OG – both having mild notes and mild undertones rendering the user’s mouth free of resin. Personally, I like non-ganja-y weed because I’m not fond of spitting resin or coughing.

APPEARANCE

Dark green buds with purple tones coated with orange hairs. To the touch it’s spongy and crispy while sporting dense colas.

Unfortunately, these buds are stemmy. I’m not offended by it, at all, because of the price range — $29, tax not included.

SMELL

The smell is pungent and reeks of cold brewed coffee scent doused with soy milk. There’s a little hint of mint in there, a little herbal when inhaled the second time.

TASTE

As is PSS tastes like soy milk mixed with coffee. It’s has a bit of minty biscuit taste mixed with graham cracker sour.

Combusted, it’s cotton candy all throughout before it transforms to having the requisite herbal bitter notes. Spicy? It is kind of spicy which is one of my favorite notes.

EFFECTS

PSS grants you tunnel vision. It’s good to work with when a lot of concentration is needed. It doesn’t make me euphoric but it does make happy and calm. I smoked this while I was hungry and I got a little bit of a headache before my body’s convinced that I wasn’t hungry at all.

Over all, taste-wise, I’m not impressed with Platinum Scooby Snacks but the effects are positive for me. This, I would suggest, is good for everyday use because it balances the body.

Tropical Depression — Missing Lugaw

Nostalgia is a dish best served in a bowl —

When you’re the type of island wench that misses late night wanderings and failed random encounters, the first thing you crave for is lugaw.

My point is if cannabis was made legal in the Philippines and I happened to still live there I would most likely scramble to the designated lugawan, chug my usual San Miguel Pale Pilsen, and waste the dawn away ruminating and marinating in my incredible thoughts. And then roll another Backwoods blunt to toast the new day ahead of me.

But who said I never did that while I was in the Philippines?

The smell of garlic, soiled streets, and cheap eats at 2 am — sweaty and writhing in my own anxiety — only to have a bowl of goto or arroz caldo or lugaw to ease me out of my own neurotic mess.

Food was what I missed in my country. The availability and affordability of it all. The inglorious use of salt and worship of umami. Asia is the embodiment of flavor —

Someday, when I’m ready to leave California, I’ll go on that vacaycay. It’s been a long time…

Cannabis Daily – Honey Bee

Screen Shot 2018-03-05 at 2.57.14 PM
HONEY BEE
Type: Indica
THC: 16.9 %
Genetics: Flo x Biker Bob
From: SPARC SF – Discontinued

When a dispensary provides an extensive digital menu telling you which buds are sun grown and which are hydroponic, the prices make a lot of sense.

Birthed from the collaboration of the legendary DJ Short and Cannabis Cowboy this strain was meant to be a pure Sativa. Although, like most weed out there, different versions happen and you get a hybrid Blue Dream or a pure Sativa to an Indica one. The Honey Bee that I smoked was a pure Indica that retailed for around  $35+ pre-tax. Good, price for good bud, in San Francisco.

APPEARANCE

Green bud all around with the orange hairs. For me this is a good sign because most Indicas I smoke have a darker, purple hue to them which leads me to believe that I will cough after smoking this.

SMELL

It’s sweet and creamy — a little bit fruity with hints of earthy present in honey. When something smells kind of like wet rag or striaght up poop, I’ll know I’ll love it. Honey Bee has that and it also has the sweet, pungent smell of fruit emanating from the flower.

TASTE

As is it tastes like raspberries and something faintly sweet with a fruity undertone. It actually made me salivate as I took in another dry hit and was met by a thick, sweet and earthy note.

Ignited, it tastes herbal and it isn’t as bitter as I expected it. There was a light coating of resin in my throat but not enough to make me want to spit it out.

EFFECTS

It doesn’t make you couch bound. It actually convinces the body to rest and when movement occurs there’s no traces of the body wanting to be lazy. This is good for slow activities — perhaps, to be safe, good for indoor use.
