I chose Islamorada strictly because of the name. My dad was stationed in the Keys in the Navy, my brother was born there, & I grew up going to Key Largo every weekend. The Keys are dear to my heart, so why wouldn't I want to try a heavy indica honoring this beloved place?? Choosing cannabis based on the name of the strain doesn't always go well, but this was a happy exception.
To be honest, I bought this strain because of the name, and its sweetness, in both taste and effect, lives up to the expectation. Vanilla Berry Pie (VBP) is an indica dominate hybrid. I purchased on 1/8th, or 3.5g for $42. VBP is a cross between Magnum Opus 11th Gen. Royal Kush x Cherry Pie Kush x Sunset Sherbert. As with all of One Plant's flower, VBP is organically grown.

I was excited to see a Sativa dominant hybrid during my trip to One Plant. I've always reached for indicas, but lately, I find myself drawn to Sativas for a little extra boost. I purchased an 1/8th, or 3.5g, for $42. Ebony & Ivory is a strain created by Swamp Boy Seeds. It is a cross of The White and Nigerian (hence, the name). The buds of this organically grown flower are medium sized & covered in trichomes (that frosty goodness). Upon opening the jar, I was hit with an earthy, nutty aroma.

Muv has several options for cartridges. I found the Pure cartridge fit my existing pen, so this is the one I decided to go with. I was happy to see it is solvent-free, and only contains distillate with cannabis-derived and all natural terpenes, providing full spectrum benefits. Blueberry is one of my favorite strains, so I was excited to try it in a concentrate. As I suspected, the concentrate isn't quite as effective for me as the whole flower, but it is still a decent alternative if you have to be discrete, or whole flower isn't your thing.

Velvet Glove is an Indica-dominant Hybrid (70% indica, 30% sativa). It is a cross between GMO Cookies and Nookies. The first thing I noticed about this flower was the smell. The strain is particularly fragrant. The pungent aroma is similar to Sour Diesel, but with a citric, sweet twist. Velvet Glove is said to leave you feeling happy, relaxed, and focused. It is a gentle indica-dominate strain in that it doesn't make you feel overly sleepy. (Read more by clicking the photo above.)
When I heard the name of this strain, I knew I had to try it! It sounded like the perfect pairing for a Florida girl. Citradelic Sunset is a 50/50 hybrid, even though it is labeled by Muv as a Sativa. The first thing I noticed is the lime green hue of the buds. It is the most vibrant colored flower I've ever seen, and it is beautiful! (Read more by clicking the photo above.)
When you search cartridges on Trulieve's website, there a lot of options. Regardless, no matter what concentrate you choose, you can be sure there are no cutting agents like MCT oil (coconut oil). I decided to go with the Jack Herer CO2 Vape Sativa cartridge. The stain is named after a marijuana activist and author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes. It is a very well known, popular day-time, sativa-dominate strain. (Read more by clicking the photo above.)
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.
