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 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.

Cannabis is broken into 2 species: Cannabis indica & Cannabis sativa.

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.

Polaris, or better known as Grand Daddy Purple, was bred specifically for its potent psychoactive effects that blanket both mind and body.
