Welcomes to Here 4 the Flavor - chronicles of one stoner's quest for the terpiest of terps. Spark up a bowl and inhale reviews of the best marijuana strains, concentrates and dispensaries he finds along the way. Happy toking!
Bubble hash, full melt, ice wax – whatever you call it – water-extracted concentrates are by far my favorite type of cannabis concentrate. They can be so flavorful, so potent, but also so hit-or-miss.
Making the highest-quality hash requires true artistry and care – care for the product and for the end consumer – which makes finding truly extraordinary hashes more of a rarity than a common occurrence.
While smoking anything is the ultimate test for quality, there are a few ways I go about finding unicorn tears in a sea of mediocrity. Check them out below and leave a comment if you have any more tips to add to the list.
Girl Scout Cookies is easily one of my favorite strains. The beautiful tight nug structure, the deep purple and green hues, the sweet n’ skunky smell and flavor; the heavy-hitting couch-lock stone… it’s really the complete package when grown to its full potential.
Enter Cookies and Cream, a cross between my beloved GSC and Starfighter (Alien Tahoe OG x Lemon Alien Dawg). This wonderful strain takes all the things I love about Girl Scout Cookies to the next level.

A few weeks ago my girlfriend and I took a day-trip to Santa Cruz for a run along the coast (marathon training woooo!) and a little dispensary tour. Our first stop was CannaCruz Collective, a shop that completely blew me away with their super friendly staff, wide selection of top-shelf flowers, and amaaaazzzing in-house concentrates.
I specifically picked CannaCruz for the DJ Short Blueberry that I’d seen on their menu – I’ll post a video strain review soon – but ended up being distracted from other flowers by their selection of super terpy concentrates. Nearly all of their in-house extracts had the flower counterparts on the shelf, which made it really fun to go from smelling concentrates to the flower that produced it.
After some tough deliberation I left with three live resin flavors: Chiquita Banana, Slymer and Blueberry. Check out reviews of each live resin below.
I can’t remember exactly when I first tasted Obama Kush. What I do know is that once I exhaled that first hit, it became one of my favorite flavors of all-time. When I lived in Portland I always had a jar of Obama Kush stocked and within reach.
And while Obama Kush is plentiful in Portland, it’s actually quite hard to find in San Francisco (I’ve come across only one decent batch). So on a trip to Portland last weekend I made it a point to find a proper piece of this delicious strain. Lucky for me, Resin Ranchers had just dropped a batch of top-shelf Obama Kush at Farma, and I didn’t waste any time stopping by.
