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.

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.

Cannabis Daily – Honey Bee

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.

 

 

Cannabis Daily – Grape Jelly Donut

Screen Shot 2018-03-04 at 8.26.29 PM.png
GRAPE JELLY DONUT
Genetics: Birthday Cake x Grape Sherbet
Type: Indica
THC: ???
From: Urban Pharm – Discontinued

Sometimes there’s comfort in knowing that certain dispensaries have consumption licenses. Fortunately, in San Francisco, Urban Pharm has one as well as the Barbary Coast, Apothecarium, and Sparc. It’s hard toking up and being social in a city that barely allows having pets, couples, and smoking while living in a sublet or an apartment.

The truth is Grape Jelly Donut is best enjoyed for indoor use. It is a heavy indica bred from two scrumptious strains — Birthday Cake x Grape Sherbert respectively — that herald a ganja-y notes when smoked.

LOOK

The nugs were thick, compact, and sticky. There were barely any stems after breaking the thick, spongy flower. This allowed me to just shove it in my metal grinder — a generic Santa Cruz shredder.

SMELL

Since Urban Pharm, like Connected Cannabis Co. and Purple Star, have pop top plastic containers — the flowers’ smell quickly fades over time. Beyond that it smells sweet and pungent… almost intoxicating like the filling of a jelly doughnut with hints of yeasty sweet fried dough.

TASTE

As is – It has a sharp hint of mint that dissolves into a rather bitter sweet, almost chocolatey taste. Like a Cadbury Fruit and Nut bar — I wouldn’t say this is herbal, it’s more reminiscent of green fruit, dull and absolutely inedible.

Combusted – Bitter and earthy. It’s a ganja type of weed where a thick coat of resin fills the mouth and makes the smoker salivate.

EFFECTS

Grape Jelly Donut is for people that love being couch bound. It takes away the anxiety by making the user knock out. Unlike Birthday Cake it doesn’t make you crave for anything. It actually dulls the taste buds but provides a little appetite.

Will I smoke this again? Maybe. But I need to get used to it.
