Strain Review

Sapphire Kush from Northern Emeralds

February 13, 2017

Strain: Sapphire Kush

Genetics: Titan OG x Pink Panties

Type: Hybrid

Grower: Northern Emeralds

Dispensary: 1944 Ocean, San Francisco

Since moving to San Francisco I’ve found only a few growers who I trust to deliver the highest quality product on a consistent basis (a.k.a. every time). Northern Emeralds is one of the few. I was first introduced to them through another of their staple strains, Titan OG – a heavy-hitting couch-locker. Then I came across their Sapphire Kush, a cross of Titan OG x Pink Panties. The strain is an OG lover’s dream from start to finish, and has quickly become one of my favorite flavors in town.

Three Days, 22 Strains in Amsterdam

Visiting Amsterdam Coffee Shops

Back in 2012 I fulfilled a lifelong dream of visiting Amsterdam. While on a solo trip through Europe, I spent three days power walking from coffeeshop to coffeeshop looking at as many strains as possible and picking up grams of only the best. I ended up smoking ~22 grams of herb and 2 grams of hash in those days + a space cake.

Chiquita Banana by Utopia Farms – The World’s Strongest Cannabis Strain?

January 28, 2017

Strain: Chiquita Banana

Genetics: I’ve seen a couple different reports of the strain’s actual lineage, including OG Kush x Banana and OG Kush x Skunk Haze

Type: Hybrid

Dispensary: Sparc, San Francisco

Chiquita Banana, grown by Utopia Farms, made headlines last year when High Times and other publications named it one of the Strongest Marijuana Strains in the World. 

It’s said to consistently test around 30-33% THC – quite an impressive number. But to be honest, I never put too much stake in test results. I’ve seen the same batch of flower test all over the board from different labs. The real test for me is putting some in my lungs.

Best Dispensaries in San Francisco

January 17, 2017

One of my favorite weekend activities in San Francisco is rolling up some joints, grabbing my camera and heading to a new neighborhood to explore.

From The Mission and Haight-Ashbury, to Nob Hill and SOMA, each neighborhood comes with unique vibes and a new pool of amazing restaurants, bars, shops and, of course, dispensaries to dive into.

And now that I’ve lived here for nearly a year, I feel like I can confidently name a few of the best dispensaries in San Francisco. 

Here’s my list of go-to’s. These are in no particular order, but they’re always the first menus I check when I’m hunting for new flavors.
