Headstash Highlights (July 2018): Wedding Cake, Zkittles, and more!

August 7, 2018

Welcome to a new monthly blog post series called “Headstash Highlights” where I’ll spotlight the tastiest, most mouthwatering flavors of flower, hash, and beyond that have passed through my lungs throughout a given month.

My goal with this series is to shine a light on the best cannabis products that I’ve come across – so that you too can enjoy the great flavors – and also create a place where you can share the best flavors you’ve found with me and other flavor chasers. Please drop them in the comments section below!  

So without further adieu let’s get started….

Best Cannabis Flowers

WEDDING CAKE

Grower: Alien Labs
Dispensary: C.R.A.F.T. Collective in Berkeley, CA

Late June was a great time to be a cannabis consumer in California. A bunch of dispensaries across the state were in a mad rush to liquidate their old supply as Prop 64 regulations went into effect on July 1. That meant CRAZY deals on great products. Yeah, I’m talking $200/ounces of Alien Labs crazy (for the uninitiated, this would usually run you $450+).

I took advantage of the deals and scooped an ounce of their Wedding Cake, which is consistently one of my favorite strains from the Alien Labs crew. This batch was beautifully grown and was dripping in sweet, funky terps.


ZKITTLES

Grower: IC Collective
Dispensary: C.R.A.F.T. Collective in Berkeley, CA

It took me a long, LONG time and smoking a bunch of mediocre bud to find a batch of Zkittles that lived up to the hype. When I finally did find a proper batch it was 100% worth the hunt.

This batch of Zkittles from IC Collective is up there with my favorites. The buds are more beautiful than your average batch of Zkittles, smell delicious, and coat your mouth with that unique combination of fruity, sweet and gasoline/funk flavors. I’m currently staring at my empty jar of Zkittles while I lick my lips.


EMERALD OG

Grower: Northern Emeralds
Dispensary: Elevated San Francisco

Northern Emeralds grows some fire Sapphire Kush and Titan OG, so when I saw this Emerald OG – a strain that I hadn’t tried from them yet – I didn’t hesitate giving it a go. And just like the two aforementioned strains, this one is up there on the top shelf. I loved the chunky OG bud structure and flavor profile that, to me, was very OG-forward with gas, pine and funk.


Best Cannabis Concentrates

GARLIC COOKIES A.K.A. GMO

Producer: Dr. Ladybug

Garlic Cookies is a special type of funk. It’s putrid. It’s offensive. I’ve heard it described as what “the inside of a bum’s pocket” smells like. It’s also mouthwateringly amazing. Dr. Ladybug and his crew did a killer job distilling the acrid GMO funk into a gorgeous batch of rosin that smells and tastes next level.


LEMON MERINGUE

Producer: 710 Labs
Dispensary: 
Elevated San Francisco

If you can’t tell from my IG feed, I’ve been on somewhat of a 710 Labs kick lately. After all, they do make some of the most fire hash available in San Francisco these days. This Lemon Meringue was no exception. The smell and flavor are heavy on sweet gassy funk from the strain’s Cookies & Cream heritage and I enjoyed the sand-like consistency that remained pretty stable even after coming in and out of the fridge a few times.


WHITE TAHOE COOKIES

Producer: 710 Labs
Dispensary: 
Elevated San Francisco

Over the course of July I tried 5 or 6 different flavors of 710 Labs bubble hash and the standouts were definitely the Lemon Meringue (above) and this White Tahoe Cookies. This one was starting to grease up just a little in the jar and oozed with sweet funky terps. Finished it off as I typed this blog post, so good!
