Strain: Sour Diesel
Potency: Estimated 19% to 22% THC
Origin: Crop King Seeds
Lighting: 1000w HPS
Nutes: Sensei bloom
Grower: Art Tic Jester – MatSu
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!
Strain: Dark Angel
Type: 50% Indica / Sativa – (Cheese X Jack Herer)
Potency: Estimated 15% to 20% THC
Origin: Crop King Seeds
Lighting: 1000w HPS
Nutes: Sensei bloom
Grower: Arctic Jester – MatSu
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.)
“It begins with a spacey happy head rush that leaves you introspective and dreamy, with your mind soaring in vibrant thought. As your mind disappears within itself, your body will fall victim to a relaxing full body stone that leaves you helplessly couch-locked for hours on end. These effects make Dark Angel a patient favorite for treating chronic pain, muscle spasms, spasticity,” – allbud.com
Manicure: Very tight hand trim.
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.“

GROWER: Kachemak Walker
APPEARANCE: Wonderful tight bud with quality trim job. Lots of trichomes, borderline frosty.
SMELL: Typical Kush
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.

go into the woods and breathe
TYPE: Indica Dominant
ORIGIN: Red Run Cannabis Cultivators LLC
GROWER: Red Run Cannabis Cultivtors LLC
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.
OVERALL: 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.

Never Smoke Weed with Willie Again
Type: Sativa Hybrid
Origin: Cali Connection
Grower: Northern Lights Cannabis Company
Appearance: Tight, sparkly, very dense buds
Smell: Earthy, almost a chocolaty smell, very inviting, can’t really find the “skunk” heritage on the sniff test.
Burn: Clean, thick and flavorful inhale.
Taste: Rich, I can feel it coating my tongue, very nice promising flavor that does not disappoint when it gets to the high.
Exhale: Please remember to do that.
High: YES, there is a serious high that starts before you remember to exhale. Very cerebral, a good “Let’s get’er done” high. My mind does tend to wander a little (4 days I’ve been trying to get this review out) because I keep thinking of better things to be doing at the moment, or see a funny cat meme and end up watching 30 minutes of Darwin Award videos.
Manicure: Tight, no fluff, no scruff, just the good stuff.
Overall: Solid 9, a performer that does not have me waking up with keyboard imprinted in the side of my face. I’m told that after a few years regular users report some jitters and anxiety from this strain that does not happen with NY Diesel so it should be put in a rotation with other strains if your going to become a constant consumer.
I pressed out some rosin to run through my new DipStick, not a real gusher but a decent press out, a second press would bring a little more, and a 3 ton press would really do the trick. Excellent L Limonene dominant terps coming off the pressed and decarbolated rosin/bud.
I was presented with a DipStick today by my friend Zeke Hilsinger (he has the entire NW Exclusive on the DipStick!) and this is my review and a few links to video reviews by others and where you can get a free ticket to the Anchorage DipStick rollout party!
I love Dabs, Rosin, Crumble…concentrates are awesome for a lot of reasons, purity, ease, compact, easy to dial in a high, great for precise dosing at optimal temps etc, etc.
So on to the DipStick. Very nice maglatch box that can be reused as a stash box. (who doesn’t like cool boxes?). Inside you will find the main pen, two ceramic tips, two batteries with charger, two dab jars, spare tube seals a lanyard and instructions.
The DipStick is a quality tool made in the USA. I usually try not to say good things about anything coming out of Texas except Willie Nelson but this is one of those rare exceptions. A “Sleek Design : A solid aluminum body” with a nice ergonomic feel, a magnetic cap, rebuildable coil and easy to clean parts.
One of the most excellent features is an overflow reclaim chamber on the tip. In there you will find dab that might have run down the coil before vaporizing so it’s not the toxic sludge you might find in other vape pen catch basins.
With a suggested retail of $199 you would expect this to be a high quality instrument and that is exactly what it seems to be. I suspect you might be able to talk Zeke into a roll out discount if you can make it to the Party. There will be “FREE DABS and Medicated Sweets” and hopefully I’ll be there providing product demonstrations.
You can hook up with FREE TICKETS by rushing over to TicketLeap. This will be held at a private home so space will be limited!
I’m gonna go check my oil now…l8rs.
Oh yea…Being the ever curious sort and wondering about the true versatility of this pen I loaded a chunk of crumble into the coil and replaced the cap then turned it on and hit the heat. A great toke without removing the cap, how freaking easy is that? Oh yea, it turns itself off if you leave it laying around and forget about it while your looking for the dab container lid you dropped under the desk or drop it back in your pocket after a quick hit at the concert or DMV. (Uh, yea…Alaska Hemp does not recommend or advise vaping at the DMV or any other public space, keep it legal Eagles.
