BC CBD, a CBD strain review

This is the first time I’ve tried a CBD strain. I’ve been experiencing a lot of anxiety symptoms lately and I’ve been managing them by smoking sativas during the day. They tend to be lower in THC and with marginally higher CBD levels. I’ve heard lots of people say CBD is good for anxiety so I thought I’d give it a shot. When I started breaking the bud apart, I noticed the smell reminded me of peanut butter so this might be a treat! I’m sure it’s supposed to be diesel and orange or something but I smelled peanut butter and it wasn’t from something I ate. 🤷🏻‍♀️ The buds are very pretty with green buds and orange hairs As I pretended to know what the lab results meant, I was able to deduct that this strain is 8-10% CBD and around 6% THC so I decided to go for broke and see what happens if I smoke the whole thing. It’s not like I’ll get very high since CBD counteracts the negative effects of THC. I found that I didn’t feel baked. My head felt clear and I felt very relaxed. I could easily go for a nap, so I could see it being useful medicinally for sleep & pain. My body actually feels similar to when I use one of my cannabis bath bombs or the body wash I’ve been developing but in a lesser degree. I didn’t really have any aches & pains to give you results for pain management as I had soaked in a cannabis bath the night before. My mild feels calm and serene. The rage is gone, the inner critic seems to be napping and my anxiety seemed to be settled and there is a mild buzz. I’m currently using cannabis to keep symptoms from my new meds under control. So far sativas are doing the best for me during the day but I’m finding this CBD strain useful in giving me a burst of clarity and sometimes energy to counter the effects of a couple of hybrids I’ve been trying. It allows my head to be clearer while still getting the relief of the body high & nausea relief. A few puffs of B.C. CBD after smoking a hybrid and I’m back in action.

Strawberry Banana, a strain Review

Strawberry Banana is a fairly balanced hybrid that’s absolutely as tasty as it sounds and I will be sad when I run out!

I eagerly await this strain’s return to my life 🤗

There’s mixed information on this strain. After a quick google search, I discover the first 2 sites say indica dominant, and the other 2 say sativa dominant. I find this strain stops the nausea, tremors, and the headaches I’ve been dealing with lately so I don’t really care.

It allows me to be focused and able to tackle projects. I’m able to stay on task and not be distracted by every whim. I don’t find it helps with depression and anxiety aside from calming you down if you were having an episode. I was still ruminating but it was manageable.

I didn’t find it helpful for sleep so I mostly smoked it during the day. I didn’t find it made me sleepy even though it’s 70% indica but I did feel kinda lazy. I managed to find all sorts of work to do from the couch so it wasn’t an issue for me. I was missing the get up and go true Sativas deliver but out of the options I had, this strain was the most helpful.

I am now out of Strawberry Banana and I do indeed miss it. It’s a flavorful delight that stopped my major symptoms and gave me focus. I’d recommend this strain for anyone who loves a sweet flavorful smoke, with a moderate high.

Pink Kush, a strain review

I had to search all my notes, drafts and published posts to discover I haven’t written about Pink Kush yet! This is a classic bedtime treat for me. I loved the taste and smell of this strain but it’s not always strong enough to counteract my occasional insomnia.

This strain tastes exactly what I imagine the color pink to taste like! A little floral, a little sweet, with just a little bit of berry is exactly what the color pink should taste like, don’t you agree?

A lot of websites say this strain is a heavy hitter but I’ve always found it on the lower side of indicas. Personally I’ve considered it to be mid range for strength. It’s not as strong as my favorites that knock me out but it’s not as weak as the indicas that I consider “just a tasty treat”. This strain for me is mid range even though it boasts an average 22% THC.

I didn’t feel overly high or have any negative effects. It did give me the munchies and unfortunately we are all out of cookies so I can’t say how bad the munchies are. For sleep, I’d say it made my eyes a little heavy but not “I’m going to pass out” heavy. I really like the indicas where I have a hard time keeping my eyes open. I did however sleep really well. In fact I stayed asleep and woke up refreshed with no disturbances in the night. So the perfect sleep balance and definitely a favorite these days.

Just for the heck of it, I smoked almost an entire king size to myself to see what the fuss is. I keep forgetting I have legs. That’s how strong the body high is. My tolerance is really high but I can now see how this strain might hit others quite hard. Pink is always a favorite of mine, it’s just not always strong enough. This time around it was top quality and did exactly what I needed it to. I’d recommend Pink Kush if you find the heavy hitters too strong or if you just love the taste. Like me. 🤗

Bruce Banner, a strain review

This Sativa dominant strain is often reviewed as a heavy hitter but it’s still described as a clear high. I’m excited to see how it tackles my symptoms of nausea, tremors & fatigue.

I feel like I can finally concentrate after smoking half a joint. Calmed my tremors and provided tolerable nausea relief. I really like how clearheaded I feel, I feel almost focused and that creative and problem solving endeavors are the ideal activities after this session.

I’m finding it’s not a big motivator when dealing with low energy as it doesn’t seem to be as energizing as I would like it to be immediately after smoking. It’s more like it energizes your mind than your body.

However it once you get up, you’re ready for action. Be careful where you go after your session as you might end up starting a bigger project than you can accomplish!

Leafly says it’s lower on the energizing scale but another site says high so I guess it definitely depends on the severity of symptoms and whether you get up. If you need help walking to the store, working out or to run errands (I don’t recommend driving after smoking) then this strain can help you do just that!

As for the heavy hitting capabilities of this strain, I can’t comment. I didn’t feel heavy effects so I’m guessing my tolerance is super high or the other reviewers were only reviewing for recreational purposes. Either way I enjoyed my experience and felt pretty good using this strain.
