91LIFE PREVIEW: Durban Poison - Herbal Mission, San Francisco

Durban's energetic and uplifting nature make it an ideal choice for medicating early in the day. The fast-acting onset is perfect for quickly relieving nausea and energizing the mind. This variety can be particularly beneficial for patients going through long and intensive treatment sessions. The pure sativa effect is great for counteracting fatigue, increasing appetite, and lifting the spirits. 99% off all modern cannabis available at dispensaries has been hybridized with indica varieties so it's a real treat to be able to enjoy the pure medical qualities of sativa cannabis.

91LIFE PREVIEW: OG Haze Melt - Harborside Health Center, Oakland

One thing I hear from fellow patients often is that they're interested in concentrates, but they have a hard time finding something that both therapeutically viable and non-incapacitating. This melt strikes that perfect balance, providing powerful long-lasting therapeutic strength while remaining suitable for daytime use. The tranquil and meditative effect is a perfect way to take your mind away from the stresses and discomforts of medical treatments.

91LIFE PREVIEW: Bwanana - SPARC, San Francisco

A true connoisseurs sativa, Bwanana (Sweet Skunk x Maui Haze) is developing a cult following among Bay Area chronnoisseurs in part to its vintage skunky essence and soaring cerebral high. Reportedly bred out of the Bay Area in early 2000's, Bwanana started showing up at dispensaries regularly in late 2009 where it's become a mainstay at SPARC. Everything about Bwanana is a throw-back to the early skunk/haze hybrids that dominated the mid-90's, from the exotic bouquet, to the 'bright buzzing' high. Bwanana seems to strike a perfect balance of phenotypical characteristics that speak to both its haze and skunk ancestry. Many of the most revered european breeding projects of the 90's were based around melding together skunk and haze breeding lines, but few strains express their ancestry in such a raw and unadulterated form as Bwanana.

91LIFE PREVIEW: Platinum Cookies - Green Door, San Francisco

This batch of Girl Scout Cookies is notably denser than most other batches I've sampled recently. The flowers have gorgeous calyxes covered with beautiful hues of lavender and jade. The scent of the bouquet is exotic and complex, with notes of varnish, fuel, and sweet pastries. I really appreciated the outstanding cure of the flowers, which broke down to a fine dust. Extremely viscid to the touch, this is some of the stickiest flower I've handled in months. Break it up free-hand and your fingers will be caked over with a super sticky and extremely pungent resin. I couldn't help but sucking the funky Durban essence off my fingers (I know, I'm terrible).

91LIFE PREVIEW: Gemstone - Medithrive, San Francisco

This Medithrive exclusive brings together Northern Lights, Skunk #1, Lavender, & Sour Diesel to form something truly greater than the sum of its parts. The flowers pack a brilliant exotic essence reminiscent of many of the avant-garde European hybrids built from skunk & NL breeding lines during the 90′s. One can appreciate the delicate & harmonious balance of Gemstone’s rich heritage, with characteristics of each parent genotype making a strong presence in its remarkable flavor & effect. Lavender & Skunk #1 seem to dominant Gemstone’s exterior while its internals ooze a tantalizing ‘sour fuel candy’ effervescence. Among the most magnificent & unique hybrids I’ve scene or smoked in a long time; an absolute must try for any NorCal chronnoisseur!
