Acapulco Gold Cultivar Review: Total Score: 94 For our 2021 New Year Review of 2020 (gone, but not lamented!), I just had to publish this because this cultivar is so good. And it’s a landrace cultivar too!!! If you can find it, get some. But leave a bit for me! I’m just back in Taos […]

The Best Strains to Celebrate Springtime

For the average person, images of sunshine, rainbows, blossoming flowers and lots of green grass usually come to mind whenever it’s springtime. But for people who like to smoke, it’s another excuse to combine to the best of both worlds and indulge in some season-inspired sessions. When it comes to spring smoking, it’s nice to reach for strains that are energizing and uplifting to match the boost in the weather if the sun is out where you live and go for calming strains that help you unwind in the evening to mellow out the hyperactivity of the day.

If you like going on the hunt for strains, keep an eye out for these at your local dispensary the next time you make a trip.


What Is “Black Mamba” Weed and Is the Strain Really as Potent as a Snake Bite?

How To Review and Judge Cannabis Strains

What makes a cannabis connoisseur? Is it someone who can discern “top shelf” cannabis from “mids?” And if that’s the answer, what sets top-shelf cannabis apart and makes it worthy of that elevated placement?

I’ve been reviewing cannabis for years, but I only recently started judging cannabis competitions and the experience got me thinking about how both approaches can help regular cannabis consumers pick the ideal product for their needs. Yes, taste is subjective, but it is definitely possible to fairly assess the quality of a cannabis product. It just takes a little extra effort, an attention to detail and the right mindset.
