You never forget your first or your best. Right?
A few months ago, I was discussing the cannabis industry with Brendan Hill, drummer of Grammy-winning U.S. band Blues Traveler. The musician had opened a dispensary, Paper & Leaf, in Bainbridge Island, Washington, in 2015, so we were talking about going into the marijuana business and changing the stigma around it.
At one point, I decided to ask about both his first and his best joint. And damn, I’m glad I did!
As many blues bands, Blues Traveler is sort of an improvisational group, Hill commenced.
Strawberry Kush (Indica)
Strawberry Kush (Strawberry Cough x OG Kush) is a California sensation and a growers dream as the OG Kush helps to hulk out the notoriously finicky and low yielding Strawberry Cough. The smell is very fruity (like Strawberries) with earthy and chemy overtones from the OG. The taste of more typical of Chemdawg, with a fruity aftertaste. The effect is a very uplifting sativa high.
No sales, but marijuana ‘gifts’ exploit a legal limbo
Jack Sargent sees a bright future in marijuana.
The retired grandfather of nine wants to grow his Biddeford-based business, The Cannabis Shack, to cater parties – think weddings and barbecues with marijuana-infused food – and open a storefront cannabis bakery. He’s already perfected his recipes, including an “award winning” Hell Sauce 420 hot sauce, brownies and infused salad dressings.
But at least until next year, when the state plans to issue retail licenses, Sargent isn’t allowed to sell any of it. While marijuana use is now legal for adults 21 and over, selling it remains a crime and obtaining it without breaking the law is difficult.
Juicy Fruit (Hybrid)
Juicy Fruit is a sweet smelling strain of Thai origin that is usually bright green in color with lots of purple and orange hairs embedded into the bud. Juicy Fruit smells most strongly of fruit punch and lemons, and when the bud is ground up it releases a very strong skunky smell. The taste of Juicy Fruit is surprisingly less fruity than one might expect, leaning more towards creamy flavors like pina colada and vanilla. The high produced by this strain has a lot to do with its popularity. The most immediate effect of Juicy Fruit is a floating feeling that is a little psychedelic. This is a good strain to share with friends because it makes one feel very uplifted, giggly, and chatty. Juicy Fruit has a clean come down with no lingering after effects and would be a good choice for patients suffering from depression, anxiety, mild pain relief and those in need of a creative boost.
