Surprising Facts About THC

Surprising Facts About THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) – What Is It and Where Is It Used For?

THC is the acronym for tetrahydrocannabinol, the main cannabinoid in cannabis that gives users the sensation of being “high.”

The history of THC dates back to 2727 BC, when records indicate that it was used by the Chinese Emperor Shen Nung.

THC throughout history was used for various purposes by the ancient Romans and Greeks, and in the Middle East and throughout the Arabic lands down to North Africa.

Silver Buckeye

I had to take a friend to Anchorage to get his handlers card and after we visited Alaska Fireweed on 4th Ave.
As I and my friend are both friends with Ron Bass he selected one of his Calm N Collective strains to try.

Silver Buckeye has a very good appearance and delightful aroma when you open the bag, which at $75 for 3.5 grams was the most either of us have EVER paid for Buds, but that is what it is.

We were told by the delightfully attractive bud tender that this was a “Dummy” strain, that after a few hits you would start feeling dumb. OK, what the hell, we had all the important stuff finished so we could afford to get a little stoopid.

We went down by Ship Creek and found a quiet place to park (BECAUSE THERE ARE NO ONSITE CONSUMPTION AREAS!!) and loaded a bowl. Nice purply and sparkly goodness and the first toke was “Mmmm…OK.” and then on the second toke we both caught a good cough and decided that three hits was going to be just about right for the first go.

15 minutes later we were both well satisfied with the purchase (me more than him because he shelled out the dough!) and went about some Anchoraugua shopping for an hour or so. Before leaving for the Valley we pulled into a secluded spot that will go un reported (did I mention there is NO PLACE to legally smoke in Alaska other than YOUR HOME?) and finished off the bowl with a small kicker of fresh Silver Buckeye added in. Two good tokes and I was in the zone, a couple more and I would have been out looking for mushrooms in the woods for a while.

A hat tip to Ron Bass and the crew at Calm N Collective for a very nice strain, JDK Brands for good packaging and to Alaska Fireweed for having one of the best shops in Anchorage. We’ll be back! (My second time there now)

Greatland Ganja’s “Space Rip” from Bad Gramm3r

Strain: Space Rip

“Space Rip is a special phenotype of JTR. [Jack the Ripper] It is a space queen dominant throwback, so different from traditional JTR (which we grow and is great) that we gave it a nickname to differentiate it from JTR”
Greatland Ganja

Type: Sativa Dominant

Origin: Greatland Ganja from the Kenai through Bad Gramm3r just OUTSIDE of Wasilla. (No tax for you, BAD Wasilla! >:P)

Growing Medium: Hydro

Lighting: Those ladies basked in the light of T-5s for veg and 1000 watt air cooled HPS for bloom.G⅁

Nutrients: We used General Hydro for the nutrientsG⅁

Cultivator: Arthur Abel and our Cultivator Kenny were the primary cultivators. It was grown with love.” G⅁

Appearance: Small buds, as to be expected from a hydro Sativa Dom I suppose. Some nice sparkle.

Smell: A citrussy floral, inviting, nothing to worry you over carrying a bag in your pocket. The terpines are not trying to claw their way out of the bag. But they are there, where they belong until you come for them.

Burn: Nicely, seems to be clean, I’ll try and update after I try it in a joint. Bowl burned down to fine, white ash. >

Taste: Very good, sort a flowery affair that plays pleasantly over the taste buds.

Exhale: Earthy…quite different than the inhale, like all that flower power got sidetracked. Some peppery nummy goodness lingers long after the exhale.

High: Oh, that’s where that flower power went! Right there…right now…two hits in and “Uhm I forgot what I was going to say…”, “Oh yea, that…uh…what were we talking about?”. High, pleased to be here, it’s a good place…once I get accustomed to this one it might prove to be an excellent working mans high.

Manicure: Well done, Greatland has been doing very well in the trimming from the few samples I’ve seen.

Overall: I was hoping to find a good, uplifiting Sativa with the brightness and clarity that I love about good Sativas and it has it. The taste is very nice, those terpines that hang around mouth for a while reminding me that two hits got me to a good place and I should resist the temptation to go back in…aww, hell, I have to give the exhale another look…as long as I’m doing the Overall I really have to try just one more for the “overall” toke.

22.91% THC-A…Eeaaaaa yea…it works. 20.62 total THC so this should be an excellent vape strain. I’ll get back to you on how that worked after I squish and vape a bud.

Matanuska Medicine Woman’s Citrus Farmer

Strain: Citrus Farmer (Skunk Tangerine x Grandpas Breath F2)

Type: Afghani/South Africa roots with Granddaddy Purple (GDP) x OGKB (OG Kush Breath) on one side and Skunk Tangerine indica on the other.

Origin: Dungeon Vault Genetics

Medium: Coco

Lighting: HPS phantom lights

Nutes: grown with canna coco

Grower: Matanuska Medicine Woman

Appearance: Tight and sparkly.

Smell: The smell claws it’s way out of the bag, pungent citrus diesel smells make themselves quite known. This stuff gives you fair warning of what to expect before you even break open a bud.

Burn: Even, nice light ash. Well flushed.

Taste: The smell was a warning, it tastes a lot like it smells. I’m trying to find good things to say about the almost overpowering dank oily shop rag sqeezins mixed with lemonade made from old socks. But it gets better.

Exhale: Something certainly transpires while this stuff lingers in your lungs. Bright citrus with a mild muddy earth…gone is the Diesel, I wonder where to?

High: It seems to approach like a long train, you can just feel it down deep before you can hear it rumbling down the tracks, then you can hear the Diesel engines roaring and pretty soon it’s on you, and before you know it your sitting in a box car, along for the ride. Get comfy.

Manicure: Excellently performed.

Overall: I really like this strain for the quality of the high it provides but I need to find a way to suppress some of the Diesel taste on the draw and bring up the Citrus, I’ll try squishing a nug and see if that does the trick. There is another strain to be reviewed soon with a worst taste…or perhaps I’m just getting spoiled…this joint has misplaced itself twice before it is 1/2 gone now…bad weed! Well, good weed actually, pretty damn good weed, and even the taste seems to…no…wait, yea, it’s still there, dark and low like Texas Radio…crawling up out of the citrus bottoms like a toad croaking out love songs.

Sour Diesel CO2 Concentrate

Strain: Sour Diesel Concentrate

Type: Mainly a Sativa – (believed to have descended from Chemdawg 91 and Super Skunk.)

Potency: Estimated 80% to 90% THC

Origin: Art Tic Jester

Creator: Northern Botanical

Method: CO2 Critical Extraction
Apeks Supercritical 1L machine, extracted at 1300 lbs, decompressed at 420
Yield is anywhere up to 25% of the dry weight.
The system will process up to 1/2 lb at a time.

Grower: Art Tic Jester – MatSu

Appearance: Think Caramel Carrot Soup

Smell: Bright and citrusy with more then a hint of carrots.

Taste: Excellent, milder than any BHO I’ve tried.

High: Just a Dab’ll do ya. This hits with an immediate impact, right to the brain.

Overall: A really exceptional product and perhaps the best use of trim that I have seen so far. I’m going to get a fresh coil for my dab pen and see how this does. It is a lot more viscus at room temperature then BHO so there will be no laying the dab pen down when it’s loaded. I’ll be striping a paper and rolling up a nice joint of this and it’s parent Sour Diesel for the weekend.

 

Sour Diesel

Strain: Sour Diesel

Type: Mainly a Sativa – (believed to have descended from Chemdawg 91 and Super Skunk.)

Potency: Estimated 19% to 22% THC

Origin: Crop King Seeds

Medium: Soil

Lighting: 1000w HPS

Nutes: Sensei bloom

Grower: Art Tic Jester – MatSu

Appearance: Tight bud, very dense trichome representation.

Smell: VERY nice heavy earthy, absolute diesel aroma.

Burn: Clean and even

Taste: Sweet, earthy, you can feel the THC rolling over your tongue.

Exhale: I didn’t make it that far on my first good hit. It knocked me the hell out! Sweet and citrus, very flavorful.

High: OK, I’m up! Let’s go do something! I want to clean the yard at 3 AM! This strain delivers just about the ideal combination of brain enervation and body stone, great stress reliever which I enjoy just as much as the general pain relief aspects, both of which it has in spades.

Manicure: Very tight hand trim

Overall: This could easily become one of my favorites. Art Tic Jester has really stepped up his grow game with this one and I’m hoping he keeps it in the lineup (and shares some cuts, hint, hint). Certainly not a bed time bud, this is a wake and bake wonder if I ever saw one. I tried a clean pipe hit and decided this needed a joint. I started breaking up the bud and there wasn’t any crumbling involved, this was more like reducing a wad of sticky playdough to tiny bits. I’m going to have to try squishing one of these beautiful buds as soon as I can remember where I put my Norelco Rosin Press.

I’m going to give this one 8.5 out of 10 leaves!

Dark Angel

Strain: Dark Angel

Type: 50% Indica / Sativa – (Cheese X Jack Herer)

Potency: Estimated 15% to 20% THC

Origin: Crop King Seeds

Medium: Soil

Lighting: 1000w HPS

Nutes: Sensei bloom

Grower: Arctic Jester – MatSu

Appearance: Tight bud, nice trichome representation.

Smell: Very nice heavy Limonene, not a skunk but certainly not Hay.

Burn: Clean and even

Taste: Sweet earthy draw, nutmeg aftertaste lingers on the tongue.

Exhale: Wait…what…ohhhh…yea…there it is…a little expansion, some spiciness, a head rush.

High: I can’t remember if I had any notable pain a few minutes ago, I’m pretty sure I did but it is all better now. It rolled on fast and seems to reaching a plateau about 4 tokes in. Not couch locked certainly, I might go out and dance in the yard. (An or two later and I’m still sitting here, chair locked.)

AllBud” – allbud.com

Manicure: Very tight hand trim.

Overall: An upper mid grade to lower Top Shelf, quite nice stone in body and brain, a well balanced strain, but Jack is always a good performer and cheese seems to be a popular performer for crosses.

From Crop King Seeds: “An excellent strain to chill at home or for moderate pain relief while allowing for mind exploration. The leaves will be dark green and minimal, while the nuggets will be compact with THC crystals and aromas of coffee and nutmeg.

APPEARANCE: Wonderful tight bud with quality trim job. Lots of trichomes, borderline frosty.

SMELL: Typical Kush

BURN: Clean and pure to white ash.

TASTE: A sweet earthy draw with lingering spicy undertones. I almost detect a hint of chocolate but that could just be the Mocha I’m drinking.

EXHALE: Please, try and remember to do so.

HIGH: Ever been slapped in the head with a Kenai River Salmon? This shit don’t fuck around! Try and avoid operating heavy machinery. It took me over a week to get this review done because every time I smoked some my mind wandered off into some other room. Great strain for Couch Surfing or discovering new patterns in the water stains on the ceiling.

MANICURE: Outstanding hand trim.

OVERALL: From Red Run’s website: Kenai River Kush is a mostly an Indica strain that blends together two famed cannabis staples, Critical Mass and OG Kush. Aromatic notes of earthiness and spice usher in a calming sensation that relaxes the mind and body. Kenai River Kush pairs a staggeringly high THC content with a moderate dose of CBD, making this strain a perfect nighttime selection.

Salmonberry Bomb…BOOM!

go into the woods and breathe

0226172112cSTRAIN: Salmonberry Bomb

TYPE: Indica Dominant

large_redrunORIGIN: Red Run Cannabis Cultivators LLC

MEDIUM: Hydro

NUTES: Organic

GROWER: Red Run Cannabis Cultivtors LLC
0225172037

APPEARANCE: Sparkling and redheaded

SMELL: A notable pine/diesel smell, the high pinines give it the slight turpentine aroma.

Pinenes are the primary constituents of turpentine. Pinene has also been used as anti-cancer agent in Traditional Chinese medicine, also for its anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, expectorant and bronchodilator properties.

BURN: Clean white ash

TASTE: Very bright, fruity almost, good flavinoids that linger on the tongue, the pinenes are high, limonene and linolool low so not much spice.

EXHALE: Sort of musky, or is it musty, reminds me of either Columbian or old cabins.

HIGH: right to the head, one hit…(OH, yea, I lit a joint 15 minutes ago, now where the hell did I put that? Oh, I’m still holding it.)

MANICURE: Top quality, tight, buzz(!) cut.

salmonberry1OVERALL: I have to give this a very high rating, nice oder, sweet taste, at under .1% CBD there is not at big dry mouth, (slight correction, an hour in and most of the joint down I’m thinking a cup of coffee would be pretty awesome) 16% THC/THCA total gives a very nice head buzz which seems to be where this likes to live. I have a nice light body buzz after an hour but the head is clean and right where it needs to be.
