Strain review: Red Headed Stranger

What is it?

Obviously, this insanely strong sativa is named after our old pot smoking buddy Willie Nelson’s 1975 album, but there’s nothing old school about it. It’s a cross between famous breeder Tom Hill’s Haze and Williams Wonder. The Wonder is full of Afghani indica, but our pheno of Red Headed Stranger smoked very...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘My Neighbor Totoro’

Japanese master animator Hayao Miyazaki has shaped dozens of gorgeous films under his production company Studio Ghibli, and all of them can be ecstatically savored under the influence of marijuana. The projects are each rife with fantasy, spooks, mythical forest creatures and strong young heroines. If you enjoy a complex epic...

Netflix and Chill: 420 Edition - ‘Shrek 2’

“Shrek” (2001) was irreverent, clever and chock-full of pop culture references. But “Shrek 2” (2004) is the rare sequel that might be even better than its predecessor. This follow-up challenges the bonds established between characters in the first film, and more potently mocks the sanctity of fairy tales. If you want to get...

Weed review: Sour Tangie

What is it?

As you can probably guess, Sour Tangie is the 80 percent sativa offspring of East Coast Sour Diesel and Crockets multi-award-winning Tangie. There are two dominant phenotypes in the U.S. that individually express the best qualities of each parent. The one whose traits lean toward the Tangie parent is not...

Netflix and chill – 420 edition: ‘Synecdoche, New York’

If you’re looking for an in-da-couch kind of movie to turn your brain off, you’ll want to skip this one entirely. But if you’re in the mood to fire up a heavy head-high sativa, this is all you.

Every Charlie Kaufman movie will send you on a cerebral joy ride, but “Synecdoche, New York,” might be his crowning...

1<3: What you might not know about Rastafari

If we as tokers have a religion that we can feel a spiritual affinity with, it would have to be the Afro-Caribbean form of worship known as Rastafari. But what do we Northerners actually know about the faith of Bob Marley?

Dreadlocks, reggae, the Lion of Zion, Babylon and smoke that ganja ... Right?

Yeah ......

Sueño

What is it?

Sueño is an obscure strain that’s gaining popularity in Colorado both for its amazing effects and its good production value. Because there’s nothing online, researching its genetics and origins was a serious challenge that brought me all the way back to one of its original breeders. After many phone calls, I...

Oh, hello, DGO – we’re gonna do something new here in our little weed garden this week as we greet the de facto arrival of springtime. Please enjoy the first of an occasional installment series looking at some of the great minds and voices of the cannabis movement. We’re gonna call it Canna-Bosses and our first is an...

Strain of the week: Citrix

What is it?

Citrix is a very powerful cross between sativa-leaning Grapefruit, and heavy-indica LA Confidential. Even though she’s 50 percent indica, she smokes all sativa. At around 20 percent THC, its indica lineage keeps it balanced, and its high terpene profile makes it an amazingly comfortable smoke.

The...

Netflix and Chill - 420 Edition: ‘Adventureland’

“Adventureland” is a whimsical period film about a not-too-distant American time period, though one we can nonetheless express nostalgia for – the ’80s. Directed by Greg Mottola (“Superbad”), this one stars Jesse Eisenberg as a nerdy, post-college intellectual named James. He is accepted into Columbia for grad school, but his...

Netflix and Chill: 420 Edition – ‘Fletch’

The great thing about “Fletch” paired with weed is that you could be in a room full of high people, each doing different strains, and everyone would have something to dig into.

First, for the cerebral crowd, “Fletch” has a somewhat intricate plot full of twists, surprises and reversals. It’s not Ulysses by any means,...
