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 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.

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.)
