GRANDADDY PURPLE

Test Results: THC% 24.39 | CBD% 1.14 | White Mountain Health Center

Appropriately nicknamed The Cream, this White Mountain Health-grown Granddaddy Purple is a California classic most consumers are familiar with. This famous indica varietal still has some tricks up its sleeve, however. Crossed between Purple Urkle and White Mountain-grown Big Bud, GDP has a large, dense structure with sweet notes of juicy berries, complete with long lasting effects for both body and mind.

The large popcorn buds burst with clusters of white crystals and fiery orange hairs, blanketed petals of alternately bright and deep hues of green poke out from the buds. With the flick of a flint, smoke spilled into my mouth with rich flavors of fresh grape, followed by a sugary, skunky pine that lingered on my tongue.

THREE QUEENS: Feel Like Royalty

16% THC | 0.2% CBD | Analytical 360

This end-of-day indica is a potent mix of White Fire 43 and Bubba Kush. At first hit, there was a rush to the top of my head that slowly wiggled its way through my extremities, leaving me relaxed. It felt like a full body massage, but the typical indica heaviness didn’t completely knock me out.

SUGARY SHOWOFF

17.52% THC | 1.25% CBD | Green Leaf Lab

This Sativa leaning-hybrid is a cross of pungent Lemon Skunk and frosty Cookies and Cream. Tearing into the buds releases sugarcane levels of sweetness while complex bouquets of lemon candy fill the room. Subtle scents of vanilla and cake round out the citrus. There’s a whiff of freshly baked waffle cone and a pleasing hint of herbal lemon verbena on my lips. Unlike other sativas that can get your heart racing, this strain has less body buzz and more cerebral excitement. Lovely as an afternoon mood enhancer, and even better, fewer calories than a slice of lemon space cake.

THE BUD ABIDES: Jämer Chocolate Kahlua

Test results: THC 22.7% | CBD 0.4% | Tested By: Green Grower Labs

As I inspected the flower, my eyes lingered on this fine specimen’s slight purple undertone and plentiful orange hairs. Once I popped the Chocolate Kahlua flower lid, I was engulfed with a sweet, lemon-chocolatey candy smell that filled every part of my nasal passage, and even landed on my palette with a cocoa ting. I enjoyed this finely manicured product after a long day of snowboarding and felt immediate relief from a hard day of aches and pains. As I went in for another bowl and ground up the Chocolate Kahlua bud, the candy smell continued to emanate and fill my nostrils. A large terpene range makes this one mighty fine flower.
