Professor Chaos

This mellow indica hybrid will ease you into the Halloween weekend. This strain is great for a scary movie marathon. The relaxation from this strain will have you settled in for the night, but mentally aware for the ghosts, goblins, and monsters on the screen.

Dr. Who #6

This black and purple flower is a dark grape tasting smoke with hints of tobacco or grape swisher. This is a potent hybrid that will draw you in and have you hyper-aware of your surroundings. This strain is a good one to keep you on your toes as you creep through a haunted house or haunted corn maze.

Dirty Girl

For all the ladies who plan on dressing as a sexy *insert character here.* Dirty Girl is a sativa hybrid that is crossed with Cinderella 99 and a rare Trainwreck phenotype. This strain will hit you in the brain with strong waves of hyper-awareness that verge on paranoia. This strain will keep you wide awake if you’re going out, but might make those jump scare a lot jumpier.

9# Hammer

The 9# Hammer strain will creep on you like a serial killer and hit you over the head.  The pungent grape and fuel notes might give it away, but this strain is going to get you whether you see it coming or not.

You Might Be Able To Lose Weight With Skinny Weed

Green Rush Flower

For as long as I can remember, people have been complaining about some of the side effects of cannabis. Anxiety, cotton mouth aka dry mouth, and of course, the dreaded munchies! Although many weed users think they have the upper hand versus beer drinkers and shot takers, the caloric scale definitely tips in the favor of people who drink once stoners start to eat an entire bag of frozen burritos.

The munchies are not just something enthusiasts have to deal with. Chemical compounds within the cannabis plant actually contribute to our desire to eat everything in sight.

This is basically how cannabis munchies work.

If you’re a regular user of cannabis, you might already know the differences between THC and CBD (and if you don’t, click on those links and read up.). THC is well-known for psychoactive effects while CBD is known for basically having little to know cerebral effects. THC activates the CB1 receptors in one’s brain, providing that person with the sensation of being high. THCV, also known as THC’s little brother (A few carbon atoms smaller than THC) effects the CB1 receptor in the opposite way. In simple terms, THCV probably won’t get you high.

Losing weight thanks to THCV:

Early studies suggest that “the behavior of the molecule seems to change depending on the dose”, which basically means if you increase the amount of cannabis intake, it would begin to provide psychoactive effects similar to those found in THC. In studies with mice, THCV has been shown to aid in the decreasing of food consumption and body weight of study participants. Additionally, when the CB1 receptor is blocked, food is craved less, which means that the trick to skinny weed is high amounts of THCV found in CBD strains (Sativa).

According to Respect My Region’s Jake Miller, Ghrelin is a hormone in your body that “drives you to eat and is partially activated through endocannabinoids (a natural part of your brain which loves fatty foods).” He continued by stating that “compounds found in cannabis activate these cell receptors and drive you to eat when stoned. THCV doesn’t play by those rules and is proving to be successful in blocking cravings for snacks.”

Research and intoxicating effects:

THCV is still being studied by independent researchers in southern England. While this type of smoke seems to curb appetite, it also shows a lot of appeal for other medical uses.

  • Shorter buzz: In higher doses, THCV will mimic the effects of THC, but for about half the time. Making it perfect for a quick pick me up that won’t linger.
  • Energetic: Finish your work and get outside.  Have some fun in the sun!
  • Appetite suppressant: Perfect for after the gym, or shopping at the grocery store when you want to avoid raiding the entire snack aisle.
  • No panic attacks: Relax and pass it to the left with no fear of impending social doom.
  • Continued research: New studies indicate it may help with Alzheimer’s related symptoms such as: Tremors, motor control loss, and brain lesions. Similarly, THCV promotes the growth of new bone cells and is being studied to help with osteoporosis. Furthermore, studies indicate that THCV helps regulate blood sugar and reduces insulin resistance for the diabetic.

Where to find THCV:

THCV is found more often in African strains. Ask your next budtender for a true landrace sative strain and try to avoid as many of the hybrid strains as available. Switching to a THCV heavy strain may actually help save money on snacks and could even reduce wasted calories. Let us know if there’s a strain you’re considering trying or looking for and we can definitely help find you what you’re looking for.

GreenRush Strains For Cinco De Mayo

GreenRush Strains For Cinco De Mayo

After smoking pretty heavy on April 20th, we’re already thinking about the next time we can truly have a massive sesh. Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner and we have some FIRE strains that we’re excited to test out.

The Mt. Panda THC-A ‘diamonds’ with terpene sauce that we’ve been releasing has been our go-to for every day dabbing. Just one smaller dab is enough to keep someone satisfied for hours. Our extraction lab and some of our processing is in Everett with ‘DabLifeMike’, our head of extraction.

It’s time to get motivated and start thinking about how you’re celebrating Cinco. Food, drinks, friends, plenty of Mt. Panda dabs, and some Golden Panda and Orange Diesel flower strains should really elevate your day.

GreenRush Strains For Cinco De Mayo

We don’t advise consuming alcohol with cannabis. At the end of the day, thousands and probably millions of people around the world choose to do so. For Cinco, we prepared a list of strains that focuses on providing some kind of energy boost, cerebral, or attention-getting high.

If you’re a dabber, we have all kinds of concentrates including Lemon Skunk, Pink Lemonade, Royal Locktite, Professor Chaos, Orange McFly, Orange Diesel, Purple Cat Piss, and Golden Panda.

If you’re a registered medical cannabis patient, the limits are:

Three ounces of usable cannabis flower, forty-eight ounces of cannabis-infused edibles in solid form, two hundred sixteen ounces of cannabis drinkables, and twenty-one grams of cannabis concentrates, per the Washington State Department of Health.
