New and Noteworthy Ganja: August 4th 2021

Ganja is the preferred term for cannabis in Jamaica. I figured that since this weekend is probably going to be on the rainier side, I’d try to find a way to add some sunshine to your week.

Palm Gardens is also helping my endeavour: in collaboration with celebrated Calgary chocolatier Bernard Callebaut, a new series of fair trade chocolates have arrived in Alberta: Strawberry White Chocolate, Hazelnut Praline and 46% Milk Chocolate.

We lucked out on our picks this week – the cannabinoids hit beautiful ranges, and the high terpene percentages on these products is obvious: as soon as we opened the Amnesia x Super Haze, Wedding Pie and Krypto Chronic #2, our sense of smell was enchanted!

A Few Fave Ganja Products

Amnesia x Super Haze by Thumbs up – Ganja that’s Back in stock!

Chock full of crystalline trichomes. Crisp citrus and pepper profile yielding a bright lemon-pepper flavour. Amnesia x Super Haze is a great daytime cultivar that’s sure to put a smile on your face. 

Energizing and elevating, this is the product to pick up for gaming, socializing and exercising. On the right day, it could also be a great product to use while meditating or practicing yoga, but most of the time, you’ll wanna run around. (Plus, the humulene will help you stay away from the kitchen.)

Pair the cultivar with a fresh rosemary or thyme Focaccia – bonus points if you use ABV to make dosed cannabutter – and a charcuterie board for a picnic after a hike. (If you’re looking for vegan cheeze, make sure to check out For the Love of Cheese – Vegan Cheezery at the Bountiful Market.)

Thumbs Up Brand Amnesia x Super Haze is a high-intensity, high THC Sativa flower. Indoor-grown and hand trimmed, the flower is a cross between popular Haze strain, Super Haze, and Amnesia resulting in a potent strain that is almost pure sativa. 

Amnesia x Super Haze’s terpene profile includes Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Humulene which gives it a fresh earthy scent with a lemon tang.

Mimi Mentions: There are a few extra reasons to LOVE Thumbs Up. Firstly, 10% of their profits are donated back into the community. Secondly, their pouches are landfill biodegradable, which is a definite step up from typical non-recyclable, non-biodegradable mylar bags.

Wedding Pie by Back Forty – New Format! 

We quickly mentioned Wedding Pie last week: it’s a cross between Wedding Cake and Grape Pie. We were excited to have the Ounce in (honestly, it’s GREAT bang for your buck). If you want to test it out before committing to an ounce, then we can’t recommend the eighth enough. (Actually, according to Alberta Gaming Liquor and Cannabis commission, we can’t recommend anything unless you come in store.)

Fans of Cake ganja cultivars will find that sweet, vanilla taste on the inhale, with a nice, fruity/spicy flavour on the exhale. Suitably sticky for rolling. Also good to note: this bud is grown with organic practices, while being a value bud. 

Wedding Pie: Wedding Cake x Grape Pie

Nugs are a beautiful light green – chartreuse? – with good density and nice springiness. 

Perfect for those sunny afternoons in the Back Forty, Wedding Pie is the marriage of Wedding Cake x Grape Pie. This strain can reach potencies of up to 26% and is organically grown in an advanced hybrid greenhouse. These vibrant green buds have a flair of purple, 2.89% total terpene content, and a spicy, cracked pepper profile.

Honest Stoner Stories:

I was melting into my couch with interesting thought associations. In fact, when I was gauging my state and found myself ranking it on a scale of gelatin-like desserts, from Jell-o to Panna Cotta. I deemed I was on a “Pudding” level.

While I was looking forward to sleep, it didn’t knock me out and I was good for one more TV show. A short episode, though.

Krypto Chronic #2 by Sugarbud

The online consensus is that Krypto Chronic #2 by Sugarbud is similar to their Mule Fuel, but with more floral and fruity touches, yielding a smoother toke.

You can expect mid-to-large nugs, with a decent overcount on the weight. Most 3.5g containers, will weigh in a little above 3.5 (ours clocked in at 3.59g) so you’ll never feel shorted with these ladies.

When you open your glass jar, you get that bright pine-yet-gassy aroma mixed in with green, herbal notes. Better suited for evening time, it’ll put a smile on your face and maybe encourage you to stay up just a little longer than you wanted to if you’re partaking socially. Smoking solo? It can guide you gently to bed if you’re looking for some shuteye.

Fun fact: I was supposed to save some of this for William… but I never did and toked it all to myself. Krypto Chronic yields a very smooth and tasty session.

On an unrelated note, Sugarbud always makes me think of “Sugar You” by Oh Honey.

Krypto Chronic #2 is phenotyped from our genetic library and aims to please with its Indica lineage of (Alien Cookies x Fruity Pebbles OG) x Jet Fuel Gelato.

Medium flower size, dense sugary buds with dark hues of purple, green and orange, coated in greasy, high density trichomes.

Terpinolene forward with notes of citrus fruit and creamy fuel with floral undertones.

Our collection of unique strains is methodically curated to the highest standards throughout the entire growing cycle. Hand cultivated and carefully dried, each bud is then cured through our signature cold cure process.
