Weed review: Alaskan Thunder *#@$

What is it?ATF is an old-school sativa that was bred in the Matanuska Valley of Alaska. It was originally created in Northern California by crossing a local sativa with a Russian Ruderalis, but in the 1970s it was brought to Alaska and mated with an Afghani male to improve its stability...

Strain review: Critical Mass

What is it?This strain was developed by Mr. Nice Seeds in an effort to improve and stabilize a previous strain called Big Bud. Its predecessor grew very heavy buds, but the overall effect of the strain was definitely sub par. Crossing an Afghani landrace with a Skunk #1 gave this strain...

Strain review: Berry White

What is it?Whether you call it Berry White, White Berry or Blue Widow, they’re all the same strain, which is a cross between indica Blueberry and hybrid White Widow. It’s a very hearty and relatively easy plant to grow with good yields and a respectable THC level coming in at around 22...

Weed review: Lemon Diesel

What is it?This strain came highly suggested from a knowledgeable grower friend, and I’m glad I took her advice. It’s a bit of an unknown, and so are the genetics. Its parents are actually a combination of California Sour and Lost Coast OG. Coming in at a very respectable 24.3 percent THC,...

Marijuana strain review: Agent Orange

What is it?Agent Orange is a very nice hybrid created by Subcool and TGA Genetics that crosses their Jack the Ripper and Orange Velvet. The well-known breeder Subcool is famous for creating high terpene-profile strains, and this one is no exception. Even though it’s genetically close to...

Strain review: Strawberry Nightmare

What is it?The only reason to wake up terrified in the middle of the night is because you’ve run out of Strawberry Nightmare. At 28.2 percent THC, it’s enough to put any somnambulist worth their weight in weed into a pleasant coma. She’s a newcomer to the Colorado scene, and growers are...

Strain review: Blue Dream

What is it?Blue Dream is a 50/50 hybrid whose parents are a cross between Blueberry, which is a heavy indica, and Super Silver Haze, which is mostly sativa. The example I have has an extremely high THC content (coming in at just over 25 percent) and packs enough CBDs and terpenes to give...

Strain review: Louis XIII

What is it?Like most of the California Ocean Grown strains, Louis XIII has heavily-rumored origins. The truth is she’s an OG Kush phenotype, and most likely back-crossed and stabilized with her close cousins. Unlike the sativa-feeling OG Kush we’re all familiar with, the Louis leans far to...

Tincture Belle Chronic Dreamz

What is it?It’s 100mg of THC infused in smooth white chocolate with crunchy cookie pieces mixed in. The candy bar-style edible is sectioned off in ten 10mg doses, and contained in a childproof plastic bottle. Each bar is made with high quality Ghirardelli chocolate and has the feeling of...

Weed review: Ectocooler

What is it?It’s definitely not the Ghostbusters-inspired fluorescent green Hi-C drink from the ’80s. Our Ectocooler is a wonderfully relaxing 27.6 percent THC indica-dominant variety that’s the result of crossing a male Gorilla Biscuit strain with a female Ae77 California Orange strain. It...

Strain review: Red Headed Stranger

What is it?Obviously, this insanely strong sativa is named after our old pot smoking buddy Willie Nelson’s 1975 album, but there’s nothing old school about it. It’s a cross between famous breeder Tom Hill’s Haze and Williams Wonder. The Wonder is full of Afghani indica, but our pheno of...

Weed review: Sour Tangie

What is it?As you can probably guess, Sour Tangie is the 80 percent sativa offspring of East Coast Sour Diesel and Crockets multi-award-winning Tangie. There are two dominant phenotypes in the U.S. that individually express the best qualities of each parent. The one whose traits lean...
