Cortney’s Corner: Say Cheese

Cheese is a uniquely relaxing strain that originated around 1988. The story most often told is that one unique female phenotype out of a packet of Sensi Seeds Skunk No. 1 grown somewhere in the U.K. started everything. This one plant produced impressively large buds and had a very distinctive cheesy odor. It was later crossed with Afghani resulting in a powerful mix of two pure indica and sativa options. The resulting hybrid is now well-known for its relaxed, happy effects that gently ease you into a blissful state of mind. Because it is so well balanced with the C cannabinoids and balancing terpenes, Cheese is an ideal option for those with lower tolerances.

My personal experience echoes the description above. I didn’t know much about Cheese on my first sampling but was elated to find my new favorite hybrid. I have found it to be a perfect strain for my yoga practice, walking my pup and easing muscle pain.  Aches and pains are cut in half yet focus on the task at hand is elevated. The crisp euphoria provided is undeniable. It helps me to feel more “in my body” in a wonderful way.

Cortney’s Corner: Strawberry Tahoe OG

I’ve mentioned my love for indica’s before, haven’t I? My medicinal reasons for using cannabis include pain relief for a subluxation in my neck and as a calming/anxiety aid. Although I have an affinity for heavy hitting strains like the one being highlighted in this post, indica’s can do wonders for helping anxiety and pain to melt away in a manageable way for many situations.

For a few months now I’ve been experiencing a peak in anxiety like I haven’t experienced in a long time. When that happens sleep can be very difficult to attain. Therefore, my indica search has been more of  a struggle than usual and my tolerance builds quickly to strains that are anything less than “very” sedating. Being that I have the tolerance and anxiety I do, sometimes it can be difficult to continuously find strains that will give me real relaxation and sleep.

On trying the Strawberry Tahoe OG I was pleasantly and heavily surprised. The head change provided is euphoric, content and focused. Tight muscles release and the body sinks heavily. I recommend this strain for members with any tolerance looking for deep relaxation or a good night’s rest. You may find yourself using less than you would with other indica strains. A little really does go a long way. You will most likely not want to leave the house when using this strain, so cuddle up on the couch with a good book before a restful night’s sleep.

Selecting the right strains is essential to having a positive experience for any patient’s individual situation. If you aren’t sure how to select strains for your goals, please ask a member consultant when placing your next order by phone or visiting our showroom. We have recently extended our showroom hours and love having you visit us and assisting you in obtaining the relief you need. Through consultation and a varied menu, I see members finding their best options much more efficiently with a consult, than without guided assistance.

Cortney’s Corner: Dream Potion #9 & Daywrecker OG

October is here. The days have gotten shorter, the air is getting more cool and crisp and our flower menu has an abundance of new strains. I’m excited to share my reviews of two of those strains with you. Be sure to view the full flower menu when making your selections as we have many high quality offerings.

My top pick on the menu is without a doubt, Dream Potion #9. A cross of Durban Poison and Blue Dream, the unique euphoria of Durban Poison is at the forefront of effects provided. A big smile coupled with the mental and physical relaxation of Blue Dream genetics make this my top recommendation for energy, euphoria and a wonderful sativa option for anxiety and depression. As some one that can be sensitive to sativa strains, I feel that the balance provided between mind and body make it a great selection for times when a subtle, happy lift is desired. If you enjoy a balanced sativa, I encourage you to give Dream Potion #9 a try.

Daywrecker OG is currently my favorite indica available. Strains like this one are uniquely useful and versatile. Daywrecker OG can be used as an end of day remedy to release all stresses and focus on being in the moment. The cerebral effects of a low dose are alert, euphoric and relaxed making it easy to socialize and focus. Aches and pains of the day quickly fade away, replaced by a tingly relaxation making it an ideal option if you want to skip that evening glass of wine. With a heavier dose one can expect a powerful relaxation and deep level of rest. Daywrecker OG is a multi-faceted strain for relieving anxiety, insomnia and chronic pain.

 

Berry White and Tangie OG

We have some fantastic strains on the menu and I’m thrilled to highlight some of them for you over the coming weeks.

In my time working at RX-C I’ve developed an appreciation for the unique effects Indicas provide vs. Sativas. Up until then my choices would tend to fall short of my expectations because I hadn’t learned what to look for. Over the last 2 years I’ve lent special attention toward strain varieties, terpene profiles and cannabinoid ratios, their effects and how each individual’s experiences may vary.

At this time, we have an abundance of strains whose quality deserves to be recognized on the menu. I’m excited to talk to you this week about our Berry White and Tangie OG.

Cannabis connoisseurs will recognize the Berry White strain immediately. Known for it’s pain relieving effects, Berry is a positive, happily sedating indica. For those looking for a night of true relaxation and deep sleep, Berry White is your guy.

Tangie OG has been a favorite strain of mine for years for its aroma and lift. Needless to say, when it came on the menu I was ready to sample it. Upon my first exhale I felt my sinuses relax and was able to breath more clearly immediately. The other relief I received came in the form of crisp focus and mental uplift at the end of a long day. Tangie OG is a great strain for daytime relief without feeling slow or foggy.

It is a joy for us to have a such a variety of options available to members. Take a look at our menu to compare what is available for your particular needs and we can discuss the best fits for you on your next order. We can’t wait to hear what you think of Berry White and Tangie OG on your next phone call.

Cortney’s Corner: Soul Assassin

This is my new favorite Indica on the shelf. There are a few particular things that make me fall in love with a strain. I like a certain flavor, aroma, density and onset of effects. The Soul Assassin was given to me to take home and sample. I was warned that it is a heavy bodied strain providing profound body relaxation so I chose to wait until the end of the evening to give it a try. Upon my first inhalation I felt more comfortable in my own skin, the effects started in my chest and moved down into my body. I felt relaxed, happy and content enough to dive into my current book (The Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman) for a relaxing escape from reality. When I was ready for bed I ingested some more and immediately found my eyelids were heavy and ready for a long night’s sleep. If you’re looking for pain relief, deep relaxation or “couch lock” I highly recommend trying the Soul Assassin on your next order.
