New and Noteworthy for June 23 2021

The biggest pot news at the store is the Summer Sales. As an independent Edmonton cannabis retailer, we pride ourselves in being able to offer you the best value for your buds. We pair that with expertise and a curated selection of weed. We like to say we offer the best ganja the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission has to offer! 

All dispensaries in Alberta have to purchase our product from the AGLC. 

Did you know? Before we bring a new product in we research it carefully. We scour the internet for reviews. I reach out to the producers. William double checks to make sure all the cannabinoids are hitting where we like them.

A Few Fave Cannabis Products

Edmonton Cannabis Spotlight: Zour Apples by Natural History

You probably already know this, but the daikoku team loves to highlight Alberta Growers with a Wild Rose icon on our menu. And while we know we shouldn’t have favourites… we have a soft spot for Edmonton cannabis – yup: we love green grown right in the city. Which is why the first noteworthy cannabis this week is Natural History’s Zour Apples.

It’s been a favourite of William and mine since last year. If you take a close look at the “Library” miniature in store, one of the paintings has a bunch of puckered up apples as an homage to the product. In fact, I’ve been known to call it my “miniature fuel”. It’s my anecdotal evidence point that weed can contribute to creativity.

Two heavy hitters, Plantman Jack Herer and Ethos Glue, were used to create Zour Apples. A mix of sour and sweet, this cultivar features notes of tangy apple cider alongside sweet vanilla. Ethos Glue is a stabilized form of Gorilla Glue #4 (GG4), a well-recognized genetic co-created by the late Joesy Whales (aka Don Peadbody), whose contribution to cannabis culture has left a lasting impact.

Natural History Website

Mimi Mentions: There’s a lot to love about Natural History. Firstly, they list the ethnotype (the parents and the parents of the parents of the cultivars used to create their product) of the cultivar right on their website. It’s a cool way to understand what path the breeders took in creating a product, seeking a particular set of aromas and effects. They were also the OG LP to list terpenes right on their package. Lastly, they have amazing cultivars – many of them unique to the Alberta cannabis market – including Zour Apples, Meat Breath and L.A. Kush Cake.

Value Bud Spotlight: Apple Fritter by Delta 9

Much like its namesake pastry, Delta 9’s Apple Fritter is loved all around Canada. Its appearance is mesmerising, with a beautiful olive-green base colour and tantalizing hues of purple which are coated in frosty white trichomes and bright orange pistils. Upon opening the container you’re met with an enticing earthy aroma that grows in strength and complexity after grind. Grab the donut, grab some Apple Fritter and settle in for what’s sure to be a great evening!

Edmonton Cannabis: Black Cherry Punch by Violet Tourist

If there’s a cultivar that I’ve been seeing by a number of LPs on the Alberta legal weed scene lately, it’s Black Cherry Punch. A great product for evenings, the greens grown by Candre Cannabis for Edmonton Cannabis Licensed producer Violet Tourist (the people who also came out with Made By pens and iconic BRNT ceramic accessories). is a stellar example of it’s complex flavours and beautiful hues. Fun fact: The “Superflower” in their name reflects the care taken in selecting the buds that go into the dry flower containers.

Brought to you by the BRNT Group, Violet Tourist’s Black Cherry Punch is a high-potency, terpene-rich indica-dominant flower that features visually stunning violet tones with a piercing aroma of fruit, subtle floral background notes and earthy nuances.

Will says: You know when you open your container and you get that smell just punching you in the nose? That’s  Black Cherry Punch by Violet Tourist.

What’s the new cannabis in Edmonton?

In other news: there isn’t a whole lot that’s totally “new” this week at the store. We brought in Chowie Wowie’s Sour Green Apple Soft Chews. While they do seem to be vegan friendly and nut free, the packaging doest state that the soft chews may contain Soy and Milk.

If you like big bags (and you cannot lie), then the latest arrival to our shelves is a 28g bag of Alberta’s Palmetto’s Pink Kush. Pink Kush is possibly the most quintessential Edmonton cannabis cultivar. It’s great for evenings, and it’s wonderful when sharing right before bed, whether you’re going to sleep or not…
