You may not realize it, but you are already familiar with Terpenes. Terpenes are fragrant oils that are responsible for the scent of cannabis, as well as a variety of other organisms and plants. Each cannabis strain has a unique terpene profile that not only gives it a signature sent, but also aids in the overall effects of the strain. (Read more by clicking the photo above.)

9lb Hammer by Trulieve

9lb Hammer by Trulieve

When the budtender described this strain, he told me it was the one to grab if nothing else is working. So, of course I purchased 1/8th. This strain is named 9 Pound Hammer for a reason. Almost immediately, you are hit with the effects of heavy-duty sedation. I was energized and ready to write, but after a few inhalations of 9 lb Hammer, I was on the couch and ready to close my eyes.

Sour Diesel by Trulieve

I visited Trulieve late on a Friday afternoon. I was lucky to find this strain available, as it is one of their most popular and the first to sell out. Sour Diesel seems to have a cult following, and I can definitely see why. It is a sativa-dominant strain that is named for its pungent, diesel-like aroma. (Read more by clicking the photo above.)

Indica vs Sativa

Indica vs Sativa

Cannabis is broken into 2 species: Cannabis indica & Cannabis sativa. Back in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, both evolved in isolated locations, developing distinct characteristics in how they look and how they make you feel when consumed. When you walk into a dispensary, one of the first questions asked is if you prefer indicas or sativas. However, today, scientists and cannabis experts agree that this way of categorizing the euphoric effect of marijuana, based on genetics, is simply untrue. (Read more by clicking the photo above.)

Liberty Health has partnered with The Werc Shop to produce some of their Pax Era Pod concentrates. When you see a Werc Shop logo on a product, you know it is quality. The concentrate I tried was Bubba Kush. This particular batch was 83.8% THC and .9% CBD. Bubba Kush is a full Indica, my favorite! This means it has a heavy sedating effect.

The Pax Era pod has been described as the Apple of vaporizers, and its easy to see why. It looks different than other vape pens with with a flat body (makes it easy to hold) that is only 3.3" long. Currently, the sole color option is black, but you can engrave it with a custom graphic. The pen is so streamlined, sleek and discrete, that I have a difficult time finding it in my purse. However, I do appreciate its size, and prefer it to the standard vape pens. (Read more by clicking the photo above.)

Super A5 by Liberty Health

Super A5 by Liberty Health

The particular batch I tried was 20.9% THC and 0.1% CBD. Due to its higher THC level, it doesn't take much to feel the euphoric effects. As a result, Super A5 is mainly recommended for patients with chronic stress, anxiety, and chronic depression. Other patients have also found relief from restless nights that result from insomnia. If euphoria isn't your thing, the strain is also beneficial in low doses. It can improve creativity and productivity without clouding up your head space for too long.
