How to Review Cannabis Strains Like a Canniseur

Part of Canniseur’s mission is to change the way cannabis is reviewed. Educated consumers should enjoy cannabis as much as they might enjoy fine wine, artisan spirits, or craft beer. Here’s how to review cannabis strains. The 4-20s Review System Canniseur uses a model that’s been in use in the wine world for more than […]


Strain Review – Mowie Wowie

I’ve had Maui Waui before. Many times, but not in the last 15 to 20 years. The original spelling is what I wrote here. Some Maui Waui was purported to be actually grown on the island of Maui. Some was grown in California. But the word is Maui, not Mowie. It’s a large island in […]


White Rhino Cannabis Strain Review

White Rhino Cannabis Review

White Rhino is a new strain to me, but apparently well known in states where I haven’t shopped before. According to Wikileaf, White Rhino has won a lot of second place awards. Second place? Pot Guide says White Rhino is a cross between White Widow (a cross between a Brazilian sativa and a South India […]


Notorious THC – Home Grown Strain Review

Notorious THC is a strain that is sold for home grown cannabis. It was really impressive…for about an hour or so. Reviewed using our 4-20s review method, Notorious THC ultimately suffers from pitfalls that await home grown cannabis.


Strain Review: Diamonds Two Ways – Grapes and Dust

Diamond Grapes (91) has unique fruity qualities and a smooth smoke, while Diamond Dust (81) is earthy and traditionally appealing. Diamond Grapes produced a good 45-minute burst of brainy energy, then settled into a pleasant body buzz, while Diamond Dust produced a relaxing indica-style body experience.


Blue Dream 4-Ways (4 Different Growers, 4 Different States)

This is not a normal strain review. If you’re like me, you’ve got your favorite cultivars of cannabis. One of mine is Blue Dream. It’s uplifting and cerebral at the same time. Like a great wine varietal, Blue Dream strain is similar, but not the same, from one place to another.


9 Best Marijuana Strains of the 2020 Harvest

[Canniseur: I can’t say any more about the year or the strains than the author. So I’m going to leave it at that. Here are 9 terrific strains, whether for 2020 or 2016, it doesn’t matter. What does matter that this has been a turducken year, but not as good as a turducken (are they […]


Cookies n’ Cream – From The Spot, Pueblo, CO

Cookies & Cream Strain Review: Total Score 93 Cookies & Cream sounds like a yummy snack…or meal. Once upon a time, I loved my Oreos and milk. Smooth, unctuous delicious. I used to be able to eat a whole bag of Oreos and drink a quart of milk, but no more. I don’t know if […]


Strain Review – Lazercat Cannabis Live Rosin

This is not an ordinary strain review. If you’ve read my reviews, you’ll know I’m a fan of whole flower consumption. I like flower because it’s holistic. The whole plant might be better than the parts like trichomes, THC, CBD or any other partial use of the plant. I don’t consume vape cartridgess. I have […]


5 Undeniably Grape-Flavored Strains

[Canniseur: For a wine crazy like me, this is terrific. I love wine and all its different flavors, all the places it comes from, all the different things it can be. Why should cannabis be any different? I can’t come up with a reason.] Grape is one of the best cannabis flavors out there. It’s […]

Pura Vida Cultivar Review (Sativa or Indica?)

Pura Vida Cultivar Review

Pura Vida Cultivar Review: Total Score 93 This week’s Pura Vida Cultivar Review is for a purchase I made in Colorado. I got a chance to revisit Cannaco, on the south side of Trinidad, CO. This dispensary always has great products and I try to get there two or three times a year. This time […]


Quarantine Showed Me the Beauty of Indica Strains

[Canniseur: Indica sometimes get short shrift and used only for getting a good night’s sleep. Turns out we need to give Indica a bit more love. This story will tell you why and which strains to give a toke in mid-day.] The hardest thing about being a cannabis journalist is balancing productivity with all the […]
