I have tried a large number of cannabis strains over the years.
But until I became a medical marijuana patient, I couldn’t be sure that I was getting the products that my dealer attested to.
Who knows if it was really OG Kush or just some random strain popped from a seed found at the bottom of an old marijuana bag. Unless you knew the grower yourself, you couldn’t be sure about the genetics of the batch of cannabis you were buying. Luckily, these risks disappeared when my state joined others in the country by legalizing medical marijuana in 2016. By the end of 2017, I finally had my own medical marijuana card and started shopping at cannabis dispensaries around the state. When I walked into a medical cannabis dispensary with my card to buy a particular cannabis product, I could be confident I was getting a real strain if it was a full spectrum item. Obviously there are oil pen vaporizer cartridges where the strain is an approximation at best, but at least I can get Gorilla Glue and Northern Lights flower products with the confidence that these are the real strains and not a forgery. My most recent favorite cannabis strain is the indica Space Age Cake. It’s a cross between Snow Lotus and Forum Cut Cookies. Forum Cut Cookies is one among many phenotypes of Girl Scout Cookies. If you go further up the marijuana family tree of genetics, Girl Scout Cookies was created by crossing Durban Poison and OG Kush. I haven’t found many cannabis strains that I hate, but many are better than others.
