Jilly Bean Cannabis strain review with pics

Category: Nugs | Posted on Tue, February, 26th 2013 by THCFinder

 

Jilly Bean - Hybrid

Like the name implies, this is a sweet, fruit flavored bud that tastes like a mix of jellybeans and pineapple. The Jilly bean strain is a mostly indica variety of orange velvet crossed with space queen. Jilly bean has a dark forest green color with some red hairs and lots of sticky resin. The high from this strain is mellow, giddy, and friendly. It%u2019s good for daytime use and can be used to treat depression and chronic pain.

Strain Name: Jilly Bean
 
Date Acquired: January 6, 2012
 
Grade: A+
 
Type: Hybrid
 
Looks: Marijuana nuggets so "dusted" giving a lime green appearance with very noticeable orange/rust color "hair."
 
Smell: Like a bowl of assorted sugary sweet Jelly Belly's. Very candy-like and fruity, very sweet with a lingering funk.
 
Taste: Hints of citrus but, what always comes to mind for me is a "flat" fruit flavored carbonated beverage (i.e. Orange, Grape Crush soda). 
 
Buzz Type: Very uplifting and slightly energetic with relaxation qualities.
 
Buzz Length: Above Average to Very Long (1.5 to 2+ hours)
 
Summary:
 
* Around last summer, I first heard of the Jilly Bean strain via Internet chatter. So, when I saw this strain on my collective's menu, I immediately send over a message to hold me some. I just had to see what this strain is all about and I am glad I did.
 
The first feature of this strain to catch my attention is its smell. Jilly Bean smells delicious. Smelling this strain, I can imagine myself walking inside the actual Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield, California (near where I used to reside). Sweet sugary tangerine and orange rind scents I pick up immediately. Very fruity and candy-like, but if leave the container open and this sweet scent does linger into a dankness of funk. Personally, I love the smell of this strain. 
 
The Jilly Bean nuggets I received were just coated in trichomes. The ever twisting "orange/rust" colored hair gives the appearance these marijuana nuggets are tired up in rope. A little spicy and peppery on the inhale, I did cough a few times with this strain with larger than "normal" bonghits. After being hit with all these great senses, I will say I was a little disappointed in the taste. Was hoping the taste would match its scent and appearance, but the it was not as flavorful as expected when first hit with a scent that may make you want to eat vs. smoke this strain. More of a "flat" taste, it is still palatable and excellent, but the smell does give a first timer the expectation of something much more "tasty."
 
Jilly Bean provided me with a nice uplifting buzz, but that was also very "chill." The Sativa qualities of this strain did not have me bouncing off the walls or my mind racing. I was actually very relaxed with this strain with some good solid focus. Thus, Jilly Bean became my "go to" daytime strain when on hand. I enjoyed medicating with this strain most right after my morning gym workouts. It got me relaxed, focused, and eased some pain where I was very functional and very efficient on the job. A nice balance of medicine for a Hybrid strain that was also nice for relaxing during the evening when I did not have the desire to get "hit" heavy with harder Indica OG strains.
 
Jilly Bean also had some good "legs!" I using this strain right after I cycled off with concentrates, a typical bowl would run 1.5 hours. If a day (or two) passed with no concentrate use, Jilly Bean consistently hit around the 2 hour mark with many times surpassing that. 
 
Overall for me, Jilly Bean is top choice for a daytime strain to medicate with! This is one marijuana strain I would refill with again. A solid A+ strain despite feeling tricked on taste.
 
Cheers (& Cough),

Caltech physicist slams government on marijuana research

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
Late last week, in a speech at a medical marijuana conference flagged by Think Progress, Caltech theoretical physicist John H. Schwartz blasted the federal government’s treatment of marijuana research. Schwartz described the Catch-22 situation set up by the “tag team” of the Drug Enforcement Administration and the National Institute on Drug Abuse: At the same time the government says there is insufficient research to change marijuana’s designation from “a dangerous substance with no medical value,” government bodies systematically block such research from taking place.
 
Think Progress cited passages from Schwartz’s pointed remarks:
 
The most blatant example of this behavior [from the government] came last year, when NIDA blocked an FDA-approved clinical trial testing marijuana as a remedy for post traumatic stress disorder, PTSD. It’s especially sad to note that the study participants were veterans, with PTSD deemed untreatable by other means. After 12 years of war, this is how we treat them.
 
The physicist, of course well-versed in the idea of confirmation bias, then compared the way marijuana research is currently run to allowing creationists to oversee paleontological research:
 
Consider what American science might look like if all research were run like marijuana research is being run now. Suppose the Institute for Creation Science were put in charge of approving paleontology digs and the science of human evolution. Imagine what would happen to the environment if we gave coal and oil companies the power to block any climate research they didn’t like.

Manatee deputies raid disabled woman's home

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
Deputies confiscated 23 marijuana plants from the home of a Parrish woman battling disease after receiving a complaint Monday afternoon, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.
 
About 2 p.m., deputies arrived at the home of Cathy and Robert Jordan in the 4300 block of 98th Avenue East in the Beck Estates development
 
Authorities were alerted of suspicious circumstances by a real estate agent who was conducting routine inspections in the area.
 
Robert Jordan, 64, told the Bradenton Herald on Monday that he had just awoke from a nap in his easy chair when he saw two deputies approach his house with drawn guns.
 
“I ran out and said, ‘What are you doing here?’ ” Jordan said. “They said, ‘We have probable cause. You are growing marijuana.’ I said, ‘It’s medicine for my wife. I know people use that as an excuse, but this is true.’”
 
Cathy Jordan, who has had Lou Gehrig’s Disease since 1986 and is wheelchair-bound, uses the herb for medicinal reasons. She has advocated for the legalization of medical cannabis in Florida for 16 years.
