Ever smoked a High Times Cannabis Cup Colorado people’s choice award-winning strain? (Good lord, that was a mouthful.) I have — and if you haven’t, you have no excuse for it. This strain is available right down the dang road, whether you live in Pagosa Springs or Durango.
Not sure what I’m talking about? Well, I’m talking about Jabberwokie from The Green House Durango, sillies. This strain won the people’s choice award in the Sativa Flower category at the High Times Cannabis Cup Colorado in August of 2020. It was the only award given to a grower in Southwest Colorado, and it’s the first Pagosa Therapeutics has won.
I guess when Pagosa Therapeutics, the sister store of The Green House Durango, goes for it, they go all freaking in.
I’ve long been a fan of their grow’s strains because, well, they’re incredibly and insanely potent. They’ve knockd both Blaze and myself on our asses a countless number of times, and while I try not to smoke their strains during the day so I’m not a total freaking pothead stereotype, I do like to indulge in this dispensary’s flower any other time I can justify it.
Which, you know, is why I was excited for this review. I was finally going to get to smoke the award-winning Jabberwokie strain, which until this point, I had not had the pleasure of trying.
I had heard a lot about it, though. This strain has become quite famous for its frost, which indicates a high concentration of trichomes. It was the first strain that Pagosa Therapeutics had submitted for competition, and they stole the show on the first try.
Given the infamy behind the dispensary’s Jabberwokie, I was not only excited, but also nervous. If this grow’s strains kick my teeth in normally, what would the award-winning strain be like?
Well, as it turns out, it falls in line with all of the other strains this dispensary sells. And by that I mean it was super potent and it definitely kicked me in the face. I didn’t even try to defend myself. I just gave in. But I’ll get to that.
So, let’s start with how this little Jabberwokie strain was created, shall we? The Jabberwokie strain is a hybrid that’s a cross between Lucky Charms and Bio-Diesel. It’s known for its delicious pine scent and its potent effects, and it’s a popular strain with seasoned smokers across the board, whether it’s grown at Pagosa Therapeutics or otherwise.
While I am certainly a regular imbiber on the ol’ ganja, I’d actually never smoked any Jabberwokie from any dispensary prior to this review. I was going into this without a baseline assessment of what this strain should be, other than my bare bones knowledge of the recent win at the High Times Cannabis Cup. And, I can tell you, it wasn’t quite what I expected.
Not if we’re judging by the looks of this ol’ gal, anyway. I guess I expected this strain to blow my mind with its thicc nugs, but when I popped the lid open on the container after leaving The Green House, I was surprised to find little popcorn nuggets instead.
Not that I’m complaining, mind you. I do not judge a book nor a weed strain by its cover. And I certainly don’t mind little fluffy nugs of weed. I’ll smoke it all — fat, thin, fluffy, sticky, or sometimes even dry when I find some old stash in a desk drawer. I don’t care. Judge away.
I was also expecting more of a woodsy, piney scent to emit from the container. What I got instead was a face full of diesel fuel. Gas, gas, gas, gas, gas, gas...everybody?
So, before I’d even smoked the strain I’d been thrown off by its looks and smell. That didn’t stop me, of course, and I’m lucky it didn’t. This strain, when I lit it up, was a totally different experience than I’d expected.
First of all, the taste. While this strain smelled like gasoline, it tasted like grassy green heaven. My god, you guys. I have never tasted a strain so clean or fresh or earthy. I was transported from stupid winter to awesome summer. Hell. Yeah.
I wanted to smoke the entire bowl from the taste alone, so...you know...I did. And, for me, this was a creeper. I could feel myself getting a little spacey, but when I’d the bowl was cashed, I went from 0 to 60 in two seconds flat. My eyes stopped cooperating, my mouth got dry, and I swear to Christ, I totally saw the eyes bulge out of the head of a person on an ad. No, it was not animated or a video. It was just a pic.
Things stayed trippy for about four minutes before I stopped taking notes. What happened after that? I have no clue. I think maybe I did … things? Maybe ate things? I know I existed during that time because, well, I’m sitting here typing this, but what actually happened I cannot tell you. I was that high.
All I can tell you is that I must have passed out at some point, though I’m not sure when. And I slept like a baby for a solid eight hours or so, which I never do. My brain is constantly wired and on a hamster loop.
And, when I woke up, I felt refreshed and ready to go. Also not a thing with me, probably due to lack of sleep.
So, I guess it’s safe to say this strain blew me away like it did the people at the Cannabis Cup. Does it have claws that catch like the Jabberwock in the Lewis Carroll works? I can’t tell you cause I lost time and space, apparently. But I can tell you I’d take a turn with that beast with eyes of flame to get my hands on this strain, and you should too.
