Pineapple Express | STRAIN REVIEW Hybrid Trainwreck x Hawaiian   Pineapple Express is apparently a stoner movie.

The cannabis strain Pineapple Express is a personal favorite and a guaranteed mood lifter, and as an evenly split hybrid, it’s suitable for both day and night use.

Marijuana Strain Review | White 99 | The Stoner Mom Reviews

Cannabis Strain Review: White 99 Hybrid The White x Cinderella 99 White 99 descends from sophisticated parentage. It’s mama, Cinderella 99, is one of my favorite strains because of the chatty and social boost it gives me. White 99 is more subdued. With less chattiness but just as much euphoria, White 99 is excellent for calm productivity and relief of depression. It tests quite high in THC (over 25%) making it more than worth a shot for stoners with a higher tolerance. Characteristics White 99 is light green with soft yellow and orange hairs running throughout. Buds are compact,...

Island Sweet Skunk

  Island Sweet Skunk A Canadian strain descended from Skunk #1 Island Sweet Skunk is a fragrant sativa with a serious energy-boosting effect. Unlike some energy rich strains, Island Sweet Skunk has a mellow, hypnotic high, pairing stress relief and pain relief in one perfect strain. Characteristics This strain has big beautiful buds. My haul was full of dense nuggets, some enormous! This is a fun one to take apart by hand! This batch had a light dusting of sticky frost and smelled more sweet than skunky. Bright orange hairs lace throughout. Pulling apart the buds reveals the sticky...

  Headband Sativa Dominant Hybrid OG Kush x Sour Diesel Headband, with its dense buds and floral sweet scent, has quickly become a personal favorite strain for daytime.

The Stoner Mom Reviews: Wet Dream, for an afternoon pick-me-up

  Wet Dream Sativa Genetics: Blue Dream x Ocean Beach Haze The last time I needed weed, I popped into the neighborhood dispensary and did not embark on the 30 minute trek to my favorite dispensary. The weed from our home grow was almost done curing, so I needed less weed than usual, making the drive to Boulder less worth it. I did not know what kind of pot I wanted. This was one of those trips where I let the bud-tender make all the decisions for me. I asked for a hybrid or Sativa, and gushing effusively he headed...

Weed Review- the unfortunately named Green Crack

Green Crack is a popular strain with an unpopular name. A winner for mood lift and energy, there is nothing negative about this tasty sativa. I’m smoking Green Crack as I write this, because it’s 9:3o and I’ve got my coffee and a list of housework to do. Obviously the name is off- putting, I can assure you that I feel ridiculous as a 31-year-old woman asking for it at the dispensary. “May I see the Green Crack please? I’ll have a half of Green Crack please.” But man, the effects of this weed are well worth the awkwardness...

Weed Review Wednesday: Mystery Dank or, the mutant in the backyard

The Story of Mystery Dank   Over a year ago the BFF came over and handed me a slender bag containing two cannabis seeds. For close to six months it sat on my husbands computer desk, with the name of the strain clearly labeled. We had no interest in growing at the time so there was nothing encouraging us to do anything with them. In late May husband was preparing the vegetable garden and casually tossed the pot seeds into the garden with the rest of everything. And then… I forgot about it. Over the summer, in came the cucumbers,...
