Lost Coast OG is a good functional strain which has a piney taste and energetic high. It's not as intense as Sour Diesel or OG Kush, which is a good thing in my book. At any rate, it's been working well for me during the day. Thank you Alternative Solutions!

Blueberry Headband (Blueberry X Headband) is a great combination, crossing the legendary Blueberry strain with a newer strain known as Headband (OG Kush X Sour Diesel). Fans of Blue Dream (Blueberry X Haze), particularly the more indica-dominant varieties, should like this genetic also. Great strain for staying productive throughout the day and also can be relaxing at night. Thanks Alternative Solutions!

This is the classic "thin mint" version of the famous Girl Scout Cookies (Durban Poison X OG Kush) strain. Excellent smell and taste of course! The high is very nice; great for cerebral activities. Great job by Apelles on this lovely strain.

Great taste; a very nice way to experience the Blue Cheese strain! After I refrigerated it, I was able to easily break it apart; I applied a bit of pressure with my dab-stick and it actually shattered into many nice, crystal-like pieces, wow! Very impressive work by Alternative Solutions!

This is just some really all-around good kief, and I enjoy pairing it with numerous strains. The original strain, Night Terror OG (Blue Dream X Rare Darkness) is a 70/30 indica-dominant hybrid that I haven't gotten to try yet, but this kief certainly makes me want to get my hands on some. I will be back for more, thank you District Growers!

Strong Indica Kief
Fans of indica strains seeking relaxation after work will find this kief quite useful. Just top your favorite flower off with some to boost the heaviness/body high. Noshaq Kush is also high in both THC-A and THC-V, which are useful for treating a variety of medical conditions. Great job by District Growers on this excellent kief!
Blue Cheese (Original Cheese X Blueberry) is a strangely satisfying hybrid of two great strains in their own right. It's physically relaxing, which comes from its indica "blue" father, but also gives you its mother's sharp, "cheesy" mental focus. I enjoy it most in the evening. Great job Alternative Solutions!

This particular Blue Dream (Blueberry X Haze) phenotype is indeed sativa-dominant, so expect an immediate head rush coupled with a moderate body buzz. It smells and tastes great and the effects are definitely akin to what I know to be Blue Dream. Great job Abatin Wellness!

Bubba O.G. Kush
Bubba Kush is another classic indica with mysterious genetics and a great story behind its origin. The Bubba body high is cool and sedating; a great compliment to the classic mind-buzz of O.G. Kush. Great job by Abatin Wellness!

Bring it Back
I bought some High Lyrical Content way back in October and it was definitely one of my all-time favorites from District Growers! The taste was so smooth and the high so long-lasting and perfect. Please District Growers, bring this strain back!
Silver Kush (Silver Bubble x O.G. #18) is a balanced hybrid that is slightly sativa-dominant and wonderful anytime except waking up or going to bed. The Silver is a great middle of the day strain because it produces tremendous feelings of euphoria, and you will want to be awake enough to enjoy them fully! I joyfully utilize Silver Kush for many tasks and would highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good "kush" strain; superb job by Capital City Cultivation!

Start your Day with the Sugar
Sugar in my Bowl is an excellent sativa that will help you focus, boost your creativity, and take you to a happy place. I find that it is great for morning-time or early afternoon. It has a sweet, slightly spicy taste that compels me to top-off even bowls of other strains with the Sugar. Wonderful job by District Growers!

When I smoke this classic indica, I am reminded of all of the Blueberry crosses I've tried in the past, such as Blue Dream, Blue Cheese, Blue Diesel, Blueberry Headband, Berry White, etc... and I honestly think that this strain is what makes all of them so awesome, and having it in raw form is even better :) Pure Blueberry is simply amazing; and Abatin has done a great job growing it! Definitely one of my favorite indicas I've tried from the program so far, I have been alternating this with the Medijuana and am really enjoying the rotation! Great job Abatin Wellness!

Very O.G. Dawg
This sweet-tasting kief is more sativa-dominant than you might think; the O.G. Kush/Chemdawg faction of its genetics really shines through here. Expect Skywalker O.G. kief to boost your focus, energy, and prolong your overall high. Thank you District Growers!

Awesome purple strain with blackberry flavor and uplifting high! I would recommend this strain most for early morning or afternoon, but many patients will also enjoy it later on into the night. Also, it's amazing for listening to music! Thank you District Growers for giving us yet another wonderful strain and continuing to expand their selection!

Blastoff with the Buffalo
This is some really great kief from a tremendous strain! It makes me feel so happy, so I put it on top of bowls when I really want to blastoff into space =) Can really enhance the right strain, so be creative (the Buffalo definitely helps with that)... Thank you District Growers!

How amazing that a strain like this could even be created, as it is a genetic crossing of six different landrace strains! It’s great morning or daytime medicine; I love it for reading, cleaning, or getting ready for work. Many patients swear by this as one of their regular “go-to” strains, so wonderful job by District Growers, who have been putting it out steadily.
Big Medusa (G13 X Butterscotch Hawaiian) has also been released in other states under the name "Free Leonard," but I think B.M. is also a great nickname, given the big, beautiful buds it has! I love the butterscotch flavor and moderately sedative yet mentally stimulating high that this hybrid strain provides. Great companion for creative pursuits, especially if you are feeling anxious to get started. Awesome job by District Growers!

Powerful Daytime Strain
This sativa-dominant strain is best enjoyed during the day. It has a piney flavor and strong, long-lasting high. Excellent for both creativity and energy. If you like S.A.G.E., you will probably like this one even better. Thank you District Growers for this DC exclusive!
Excellent sativa, has the genuine lemon flavor and brilliant effect you would expect from Sour D! This is a great strain for focus and stimulation during the daytime or evening. Good to the last toke, this strain has me coming back to the dispensary for more.
Freshly Baked Pineapple Goodness
This indica-dominant hybrid has a delicious taste and a balanced high that is effective without being overwhelming. Better for the evening; very relaxing. Awesome job by Alternative Solutions on their first strain!
G.L.P. is the Way to Be!
Green Love Potion (Black Domina x Lavender) is an indica-dominant hybrid bred by Samsara Seeds. I really love the minty taste and energy I get from this stuff; it's one of my favorites from the program so far! Very crystally and strong; THC and kief fans will really like this one. Seems to be a hybrid that some patients will prefer to limit to evening use, due to its physically relaxing nature, but many may also enjoy this strain during the day, as it can help with mental clarity and focus. For me, G.L.P. is a real “one-hitter quitter;” a quality, long-lasting high that usually leads me into activity quickly. Tremendous work by Alternative Solutions!

Sweet taste, this high was mellow at first but crept up on me; I was very relaxed. I found that three long battery hits of this was sufficient to experience the desired effect, which was most ideal during the afternoon or evening. Great job by Holistic Remedies!
Killin' Fields to Go
This is one of the best Holistic Remedies oil cartridges I've tried so far; it's tasty and stimulating; a great companion for many activities. Definitely sativa dominant, I recommend this cartridge for morning or daytime use. Very strong; I find that one long battery hit is usually enough for me; or if not two should be sufficient.
Get to Know the Master
As a fan of the Master Kush strain, I really enjoy both the sweet taste and mellow high of this cartridge. I like It best for late night / nap time use and I usually take 3-5 long battery hits to reach a high I am satisfied with. One of my favorites that I have had from Holistic Remedies, would definitely get it again!

Dispensary Review:Herbal Alternatives
Great Alternative to the other DC Dispensaries
Conveniently located right in the middle of downtown DC, Herbal Alternatives offers an excellent combination of affordability, availability, and selection that really works for me as a patient. They stock several strains and concentrates from all five DC cultivators, so they always have a lot to choose from! Their flowers are never pre-packaged, so customers always have the opportunity to see them fresh from the jar before purchasing, which also means they are weighed and packaged in front of the customer at the time of purchase to ensure complete satisfaction. Their prices are always the same as or better than the other DC dispensaries and their entire menu is posted online and updated frequently. They also have a terrific selection of high-quality glass pipes, bubblers, and bongs that is actually more diverse and less expensive than most local “head shops.” The staff is super friendly, helpful, and professional; they really go the extra mile to make their patients happy at this dispensary! Thank you Herbal Alternatives!

The latest batch of Big League Bubble Gum hash is fantastic! The consistency has improved; you will love how sticky it is and how well it smokes. The taste and high are both superb, I love the mix of the Blue Dream and Bubble Gum. Great job Capital City!
I purchased one of these back in May and was very impressed with it; it's the strongest hash oil cartridge I've tried yet. The other two I've tried are Master Kush and Blue Dream, by the way. Loved the buttery taste also. Highly recommended!

Another classic Dutch strain and coffee-shop staple, traditionally marketed as a “mild indica,” (it's actually an indica-dominant hybrid, but whatever) the high is mellow, calming, and so enjoyable that it’s one of my favorites at Capital City. The sweet, sugary taste is actually reminiscent of classic bubble gum flavor; it reminds me of Bazooka Joe. As you can probably imagine, this is a terrific choice for vaporizing. Most of the criticism I have seen of this strain is unwarranted, especially considering that Capital City sells it for a lower cost than most of their other strains. I’ve also noticed that it doesn’t last long at all when they get it in, so I’m definitely not the only Bubble Gum fan. It also hasn’t been available nearly as regularly as most of their other strains, so I always pick this stuff up when I can!

Not sure what’s in this stuff, but I am guessing this contains at least one of the three main variants of the legendary Californian “OG Kush” strain: Larry OG, San Fernando Valley (SFV) OG, or my personal favorite, Tahoe OG. More information from Abatin Wellness would be nice. Anyhow, it’s nice, relaxing stuff that got me pretty high, especially when I vaporized it. The “CBD high” is more clear-headed; a nice, relaxed buzz. Useful for mild pain relief, especially in the eyes and forehead. There is a definitely THC here too, just not as much as the non-CBD strains. The THC and CBD highs go very well together; I recommend experimenting for yourself :)
I quite like this sativa, particularly for a mild high in the afternoon. The “CBD high” is more clear-headed; you feel a nice, relaxed buzz but can accomplish many tasks with the help of this stuff. Useful for mild pain relief, especially in the eyes and forehead. All that said, I enjoyed this strain and would prefer to utilize it when preparing for a task where concentration will be required. If you are looking for an intense, hazy high, try another strain such as the S.A.G.E. or Blue Dream, but a strain like this will make a great addition to just about anyone’s weed collection!

Classic Cali strain; so glad Capital City stocks it regularly! Has that fruity, berry-like taste which compliments the energetic head high, but there is a nice body high also. The magic of Blue Dream is how it will calm you down without actually making you tired. Classified as a sativa-dominant hybrid, I particularly enjoy this strain in the morning. Something about Blue Dream just makes me love life, music, or whatever I’m doing really. Highly recommended!
S.A.G.E. is all the Rage
This indica-dominant hybrid is one of the strongest strains that Capital City Care dispenses regularly. It has a bitter taste that may take some getting used to, but produces a long-lasting high that is great for unwinding after a long day’s work. If you are a heavy marijuana consumer, this strain will likely be one of your favorites at Capital City. Beginners should approach with caution.
Glass enthusiasts like myself tend to stick their noses up at acrylic bongs, but this one has sort of made me a believer. Sure, nothing is better than hitting out of clean glass, but most glass bongs are not so easy to keep clean, especially modern ones with smoke percolators, multiple water chambers, ice trays, and “ash catcher” type bowls that are also designed to hold water. And if you’re like me, you’ve probably broken way too many of the glass bongs you owned and just want something simple and durable. Well here it is! As soon as I took a rip out of this thing, I had a flashback to my very first bong in college; not just because it’s about the same shape and size, but more importantly, the way I could get a big, smooth hit every time. How I used to treasure smoking countless bowls out of that thing, and this bong brought me back to that feeling. Fun to use, easy to clean, nearly impossible to break, and super cheap. All in all, not a bad purchase.
Also, a note about cleaning: NEVER clean your acrylic bong with rubbing alcohol, the chemical reaction of the alcohol and plastic will not only ruin the bong cosmetically, but it will also make it dangerous to smoke out of! Instead, use warm water and dish soap. You can, however, safely clean out the metal bowl with a pipe cleaner dipped in rubbing alcohol. Note that the dome section of the pull-out bowl conveniently twists off so you can clean the pieces separately.
The Ultimate Glass Cleaning Solution
To be honest, I’ve found that it’s possible to clean 100% of the resin out of most smaller glass pieces using pipe cleaners (you may need a paper clip to reach certain areas; but be careful not to scratch the glass), rubbing alcohol, and occasionally a bit of salt. I also try to purchase pieces that are easy-to-clean so I can continue to enjoy them to their fullest. But if you are working with something difficult to clean, whether it be an irregular shape, hard-to-reach spots, or just really old resin that’s not coming out, this is the stuff you need. It’s pricey but totally worth it in certain situations. Keep in mind that you can re-use the same liquid several times and many users will pour it right back into the bottle after they’re done. If you’re looking for the most powerful liquid to soak your glass pieces in, accept no substitutes.
Crucial Tool for Cleaning Glass
These are the prickly kind that are perfect for cleaning glass pieces. Dip them in rubbing alcohol and they can scrub out just about any resin buildup. Bend and fold them to reach just about any spot; practice makes perfect. The assortment of colors is neat, although I generally prefer the lighter ones because it's easier to see when they’re dirty. Usually a comparable bundle of pipe cleaners costs at least $5 at a head shop, so this is definitely a great deal!

Blastoff to Saturn
I love this bowl, it’s the nicest and best I own. Yes it’s a bit pricey, but you’ll know it’s completely worth it as soon as you take your first rip and suddenly, you're in outer space! Honestly, smoking a bowl out of elite level glass like this not only makes the weed taste better, but it also somehow seems to get you even higher than smoking the same bowl out of cheaper glass. Not sure of the science behind that, but I've been smoking weed out of glass pipes and bongs long enough to know it's true. It's also easy to see inside and clean, which is important for longevity. In summary, this is an excellent large spoon bowl for serious glass lovers; exactly the kind of quality bowl you should be enjoying your fresh dispensary flowers out of. Great job by Chameleon Glass!
Totally tastes like Blue Dream, but so easy and fun to hit out of an electronic battery. It's pretty convenient to be able to get this classic flavor and high at the mere touch of a button and it's easy to overdo it. Remember, hash oil is powerful stuff! It's a nice bonus that these cartridges are identical in appearance to the nicotine ones they sell in 7-11 and there's really no smell when you vaporize either, so they're a pretty good option when discretion is preferred. For many patients, myself included, these are too expensive to be a regular indulgence, but I still recommend treating yourself when you can and saving these little gems for special occasions!
Convenient Perk for P.S.C. Members
P.S.C. Members have the option of ordering ahead online, which is handy if you want to reserve something early or you just want to ensure that you can skip the line when you arrive. I have tried this and it works great!
Another old-school Dutch strain, this bright green sativa has a piney, woody taste that is sure to put a smile on your face every time. A great pick-me-up strain in the morning; gives you immediate mental clarity and energy. It’s a very popular strain with patients and Capital City does a great job keeping it in-stock regularly. It’s also worth knowing that it won first overall at the 1994 High Times Cannabis Cup, a competition renowned by stoners internationally. Thank you to Capital City Cultivation for dedicating themselves to growing this tremendous stuff!

Dispensary Review:Capital City Care
A Wonderful Place
The staff is very committed and caring; I was on a first-name basis with them after only a few visits. The customer service is excellent; they will work with customers over the phone, e-mail, and in-person to ensure they are completely satisfied. Their supply is pretty unique is contrast to the other DC dispensaries; although they do sometimes get flowers from Holistic Remedies, District Growers, and Abatin Wellness, their regular flow of Capital City Cultivation strains is usually the core of their inventory. Let me tell you, all eight of those C.C.C. strains (Blue Dream, Master Kush, Jack Herer, S.A.G.E., Fire OG, Bubble Gum, Blueberry Haze, and Silver Kush) are fantastic, particularly the last two! It’s also worth noting they always have flowers, and usually offer at least four strains at a time. Their P.S.C. program has nice perks like a free monthly gram and pre-ordering online. Also, their free “Punch and Save” cards, which reward patients with $5 store credit for every $100 they spend, are a great deal! The location seems to be very popular, you can take the metro (red line, NoMa), bus (80), and for many DC residents (myself included); it’s within walking distance! There are also bike racks on both sides of North Capitol Street near the P Street intersection, which I find to be extremely handy. All in all, it’s hard to go wrong with a dispensary of this quality so I highly recommend Capital City Care!
This is the nicest, sharpest, and most durable grinder I've ever owned or even used; great buy! It allows me to break up the "flowers" without getting my fingers all sticky and over time a lot of keif will build up in the chamber at the bottom. I use mine every day and highly recommend it!
Indica-dominant hybrid with a strong, spicy taste; reminds me of eating those red fireball candies as a little kid. This stuff is really nice in the evening, after a hard day’s work. This is one of the most popular strains Capital City offers, so don’t expect it to last very long when they get it in!

Don't Forget about the Master!
This fine Indica strain of Dutch origin will take you straight to the coffee shop in Amsterdam with every toke. MK is indeed one of my all-time favorite strains, providing an immediately recognizable taste, sweet yet subtle. It mixes well with any other strain by adding potency without altering the taste; you could say Master Kush is like the Vodka of weed. As soon as you take a hit of this stuff, you will feel it working throughout your whole body! They say this is a great night time strain, which it is, especially if you need help getting to sleep; but for connoisseurs like myself, the Master is a welcome companion any time. Excellent work by Capital City Cultivation!
One of my favorite tinctures manufactured by Holistic Remedies; great mellow high that is particularly nice for relaxing at night. I also think it's one of the better tasting tinctures they've made. The high is a much more of an "edible" high than smoking: slow onset but very intense and long-lasting. I would recommend mixing several drops into your coffee, tea, juice, or even a simple glass of hot water to help with the strong taste. You could also put it inside a peanut butter sandwich or on top of an ice cream sundae; be creative! Marijuana tincture is also handy for when you're sick and want to avoid smoking. Try adding it to warm soup or tea next time you have a cold. My constructive criticism for Holistic Remedies would be their choice of grain alcohol to extract the THC; in the future I would suggest they try using vegetable glycerin instead, as it will taste much better and provide a cleaner high without the influence of alcohol.
