DESIGNER MEDICINE: Prepare to be Royally Kushed

22% THC | Magnolia Wellness

From an artisan cannabis seed bank comes this tri-union of Garberville x Purple Kush x Sour Diesel. Aficionado Seeds’ Long Valley Royal Kush is packaged in a stylish black box with gold lettering, and a velvet bag bearing the moniker LVRK. The flower carries a heavy and sweet, citrus-kush aroma with lavender notes. The buds are soft yet firm, and of medium density; perfectly trimmed, emerald green flowers sport amber and beige pistils. A distinct taste, much like a sour diesel flambé.

My head became clear and my body loosened all over, easing my nausea, pain and anxiety. The LVRK experience can be compared to a fine wine, with concern to taste, quality and spirit. Aficionado Seeds’ goal is to “achieve the maximum expression of High-end cannabis [as] possible, and honor old-school Emerald Triangle traditions.”

BASA NOVA: A Melodic Pick Me Up

THC: 16.85% | CBD: 0.07% | SC Labs

Upon first taste, BASA Nova filled my palette with smoky spice and was chased by a smooth molasses glaze, like a tumbler of mezcal. Nova is nostalgically herbaceous and smokes like an entirely herbal spliff. Songlike, Nova’s lyrical fusion of aromatic earthy terpenes and sweet sugary notes radiate worldly charm and natural flare. After a few bong hits of Nova, I was cleaning out cabinets and getting ahead on my spring cleaning. Nova effects are awakening, confidence boosting and will enhance your ability to enjoy strenuous or mundane activities.

BASA Nova seeds were developed in Mendocino in the 1980s. The tropical Afghani was specially bred for high resin. BASA’s farmer received the seeds 25 years ago and exact genetics have been lost—making Nova a highly exclusive Mendocino heritage strain. This sun-grown bouquet is cultivated by San Francisco dispensary BASA Collective’s farm, with standards exceeding organic expectations. Nova is BASA’s most popular strain!
