Strain review: Nitro Cookies and Bubbleberry 99 live resin
I completely overslept for work this morning. How, you ask? Well, the blame goes to a little thing called Bubbleberry 99 live resin, which we procured from our friends at Chronic Therapy in Cortez.
Chronic Therapy sent over Bubbleberry 99 and Nitro Cookies live resin for us to review, and since we wrote on their PHO wax a couple of weeks ago, we decided to dig into these two sugary bad boys to review this week. Let’s break it down by strain, shall we?
Nitro CookiesNitro Cookies is an indica strain, and the live resin we are reviewing contains 69.96 percent THC. It’s a cross between Gasmask and Animal Cookies, and it’s one of those strains that reeks normally, but especially reeks in concentrate form. The live Nitro Cookies resin, which was contained in not only a child-proof jar, but also a child-proof plastic container, could be smelled through the plastic. That’s two layers of protection (heh), yet the shiny yellow crystal stank still managed to penetrate my nostrils. That’s some serious resin stamina. I’m not really sure what to tell you it smells like, though. It’s a little sweet, a little skunky (maybe?), and very, very weed-y. Sorry. Words escape me on this one.
I CAN find the words for its effects, though. This resin heated right up when dropped onto the glass of the dab rig, and it didn’t take much for me to feel every drop of its power seep into my veins. That’s very dramatic (sorry), but also true. My arms went limp, my brain went quiet (hell yes), and I feel like I passed right the hell out. I think I was probably awake for a minute afterward, but all I really remember is being so sleepy that I had to shut my eyes. Fighting it was an exercise in futility, and I was so chill that I didn’t care to, anyway.
If you’re an insomniac or you have chronic pain (or even just a headache from dumb work), this strain will fix you right up. Trust. Just don’t expect to be discreet cause the smell will tell on you right away. Worth it, though.
Bubbleberry 99This Bubbleberry 99 live resin is an indica too, and it contains 70.99 percent THC. It’s the reason I was late for work, although I didn’t throw this concentrate under the bus. (Mostly because I didn’t think my boss would buy the excuse that Bubbleberry 99 made me do it, so I just took my lashings and moved on.) As with Nitro Cookies, it’s stanky af, but its scent is not as sweet. It smells more like a sour fruit, but it’s also somehow kind of musky and spicy. I don’t know. I’m not sure my nose even works anymore, to be honest.
So, I dropped a couple of scoops of this sticky crystal mess into the dab rig one night, and it, in turn, hit me like a ton of bricks. I was sober, sober, sober, sober, HELLA STONED, and things get super fuzzy from there. I always try to take some notes, but the only note I have in my stash says, “I just saw the reddit button bounce out at me like a gif.” I don’t know what that means, I won’t pretend to know what that means, and I won’t even try to decipher that stoned nonsense.
That’s legit all I wrote down before passing out like a milk-drunk baby. I woke up the next morning, confused and in the clothes I wore to work (I know; I’m gross) and hauled ass to get out of the house, which forced me to shovel cake in my mouth on the way to the car for breakfast. And yes, I made time to brush my teeth.
So, if you’re looking for some concentrates to either kick your ass into oblivion or knock you out stone cold, these two options are very high on my list to do that. Just make sure you put out a Kind bar or something for your inevitable rush out of the house the next morning. The cake was good, but ain’t nobody need frosting on their jeans before they even get to the office. That isn’t adulting at all.
