Green Crack

What is it?Despite its popularity as a new strain in Colorado, this 21.9 percent THC bud was first bred in the ’70s in Athens, Georgia, as “Cush.” As it made its way to California it became popular in the music industry for its energizing yet focused high, and is rumored to be renamed by...

Cypress Hill: Godfathers of weed-worshipping hip-hop

I’d like you to use your imagination (or memory for us oldsters) and try to picture a scenario: It’s fall, 1991. There’s no such thing as a “legal state.” There’s no medical marijuana, certainly no recreational marijuana, no ballot initiatives on the horizon for another half-decade, no decriminalization, no laws in D.C. that...

An ode to green: Now is the time to love on everything verde

I’m going to have to respectfully disagree with Kermit the Frog.

“It’s not easy being green”?

Ridiculous. I can think of nothing easier, more relaxing or more beautiful than being green.

It’s springtime, DGO, time to shake off the sadness of the sun’s yearly decision to abandon us for more southerly climes...

Agent Orange

What is it?Agent Orange is a very nice hybrid created by Subcool and TGA Genetics that crosses their Jack the Ripper and Orange Velvet. The well-known breeder Subcool is famous for creating high terpene-profile strains, and this one is no exception. Even though it’s genetically close to...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’

The “Wild West” has always existed as a romantic piece of mythology, but the advent of civilization makes it impossible for outlaws and bandits to get away with what they used to. Smoking weed would’ve been fine in the West’s glory days, but in modern times you’ll get busted pretty quickly (unless you live in a legalized...

Finding ‘home’ when your consciousness is altered

Altered states of consciousness, at their best, are a return to a place best described as “home”: that home of the mind, of the soul, that place where we know that we’re here on this planet at this time as the result of billions of years of ... something.

This “something” may be specifically ordered by some universal...

Strain review: Strawberry Nightmare

What is it?

The only reason to wake up terrified in the middle of the night is because you’ve run out of Strawberry Nightmare. At 28.2 percent THC, it’s enough to put any somnambulist worth their weight in weed into a pleasant coma. She’s a newcomer to the Colorado scene, and growers are keeping her genetics closely...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition – ‘Edward Scissorhands’

It’s hard to believe Tim Burton made “Edward Scissorhands” over 25 years ago. This is his best and most iconic film; a feast for the eyes and a lyric tonic for the stoner’s soul. Like many of Burton’s projects, “Scissorhands” tells the story of an outsider. Edward (Johnny Depp) lives alone in a towering mansion at the top of...

Ram Dass and how we explore and spread consciousness

“I think the message is that you don’t need to go to anywhere else to find what you are seeking.”

— Ram Dass, “Be Here Now”

For those of you DGO readers who have been following “Seeing Through the Smoke” closely, you might recognize that this column is, in some respects, little more than a decorated reading...

Strain review: Blue Dream

What is it?

Blue Dream is a 50/50 hybrid whose parents are a cross between Blueberry, which is a heavy indica, and Super Silver Haze, which is mostly sativa. The example I have has an extremely high THC content (coming in at just over 25 percent) and packs enough CBDs and terpenes to give it a great overall effect. ...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘Room 237’

If you appreciate bizarre documentaries, you need to check out “Room 237.” Directed by Rodney Ascher, the film is an intense examination of the potential “secret meanings” behind Stanley Kubrick’s horror-thriller “The Shining.” (Con: you have to love “The Shining” in order to find this interesting. Pro: you should already...
