After a recent interesting experience going in to buy marijuana with my mom (WTAF?), I realized that a lot of people in America must be newly being introduced to these good times everyday, and how annoying is that?
Have you ever sat down in your hazy apartment at 1 PM and decided to take a couple hits of weed before your personal training session at 3 PM? Did that couple of hits turn into an entire bowl, and did you get a text message from your trainer at 1:30? Did it read, “See you at 2!”
Living in a place where recreational marijuana is legal is pretty nice. Granted, I've never had much trouble finding my need for tree regardless of legality.
There are two main classifications that make up most of all cannabis strains; Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa. Cannabis Indica is believed to have originated in countries such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Morocco. Indica strains are generally a darker green in color with short, fat leaves.
With the legal marijuana market becoming more prevalent in more parts of the world (like in Canada), we are seeing a great increase in the number of businesses opening up in cannabis. With this new market comes the ability to pick and choose a variety of strains that are useful for many different medicinal and recreational purposes.
2018 has been one of the best years for cannabis enthusiasts yet—and not just because more states are looking into cannabis legalization, either. With medical marijuana's benefits being touted at every corner, cannabis farms are now becoming more popular than ever before.
That's obviously an exaggerated phenomena: time travel and splitting dimensions? You must be high. Fortunately, though, these strains can definitely make you feel somewhat like that; crispier than a buttered muffin sunbathing in a Black and Decker toaster. While some people might have you believe that weed strains are mostly bullshit (more even say their meaning is nothing) I think otherwise, for many reasons. First of all, marijuana strains are important, because if they weren't, than growing cannabis wouldn't be such a high commodity industry. Second, with our modern landscape surrounding the political and cultural understandings behind marijuana, there’s much to learn from its long history. What better way to examine the long and eventful background of marijuana than through old strains of cannabis that are still popular today?
Hope all is high and hopeful out there in Cannatopia, and welcome to my Apothecary Jar. In this chapter, I am going to showcase one of the strains that my honey grows and give you a little background story on how he ended up with this beautiful lady in the first place.
Whether it's just due to the ability to brag about your drug connects or just a random part of stoner culture, a lot of people tend to claim to have smoked seriously strong, seriously rare strains of weed. Sometimes, newbies will even lie about a certain strain just to look more experienced than they really are.
While honey alone is very nurturing, given that it's a natural form of cough syrup, energy source, and aid for diabetes, cannabis honey has quite a few benefits you might not know about. First and foremost, cannabis honey is a blend of marijuana, or cannabis plants, infused with honey, which can then be administered either recreationally or medicinally. Coined "cannahoney," this simultaneously edible and drinkable blend of two healthy, natural ingredients has additional qualities that set it apart from practically all other rival cannabis blends.
By bringing together G13 with Jack Herer, XJ-13 combines legend with legendary. G-13 is an indica of unknown origin. Steeped in mystery, she had been rumored to have been part of a US government research program at the University of Mississippi and bred specifically for her potency. G-13, though an indica, should not be confused with G13 Haze, which was bred by Neville by crossing G-13 with Haze. Jack Herer is a hybrid of an old school cut of Northern Lights #5 with Skunk #1. Bred to honor Jack “The Hemperor” Herer, author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes. She alone has won numerous cannabis cups and awards over the years.
Named for Jenny “Kush” Monson, pot activist and close friend to the breeders over at Rare Dankness, they wanted to create a strain that could “exude the same positivity and happiness” that their friend had in life. Those that knew Jenny conveyed that she only cared about others and wanted the best for everyone. Personally I didn’t know her, I have only heard about her by way of coming across this strain bred in her honor. Research shows she was killed by a drunk driver tragically after leaving a music concert in Colorado. So unless you were blessed to have had her in your life shining such positive light, like me, you’ll have to get to know her by way of this strain grown in memoriam.
