How To Buy Cannabis When Budtenders Are Bad

Every day we dedicate hours and hours to connecting with new stores across the state. We’ve been visiting all kinds of shops and meeting budtenders, learning about each city and neighborhood day after day. Throughout all of our travels, we notice that many budtenders aren’t “that” educated on cannabis.

The next time you visit a shop,  you might ask for something and get something entirely different. You’ve got to be educated about cannabis or you might end up consuming something you don’t like. It goes beyond tasting gross weed when you’ve got different types of highs and effects to consider too.How To Buy Weed When Budtenders Are Bad

If you have to step out of your comfort zone and buy something you don’t normally go after, THC percentages are just a small part of what really matters. All budtenders are not equal. Just because you love getting high and have done so for years, doesn’t mean you’re educated about cannabis. To find a budtender that is educated about the products you’re asking about is actually hard to find still.

 

You should look and listen for someone who can communicate knowledge and experiences about products in an appropriate way. This means finding ways to describe things to different types of people. Old, young, experienced or not, a GREAT budtender can communicate about terpenes, cannabis genetics, grow methods, how concentrates are made, the differences between concentrates, their store’s brands, plus they’ve got to know the in’s and out’s of recreational compliance.

It never hurts to do research online. These days, there are plenty of strain reviews on Leafly and Wikileaf, plus there are Washington-specific product reviews on Respect My Region. Many brands also have websites and social media accounts that share product information. We want you to create relationships and ask questions with budtenders, but you’ve got to be able to make informed decisions based on what YOU know, versus what they know.

If you’re a frequent user or buyer, you can attend vendor days, network with cannabis industry people and maybe even tour grow facilities. If the store doesn’t have something that catches your eye, don’t feel pressured into buying something. You can walk out and go somewhere else just as easily as you first chose that store. Some good strains for first-time users include blue dream, pineapple dream, and locktite. If you’re a seasoned smoker looking for the best, professor chaos, blue rush og, golden panda, and pineapple dream are great choices.

While THC packs the psychoactive effects, we prioritize terpenes because we know that’s what drives the high. How THC and cannabinoids interact with terpenes is what facilitates strain-specific effects. Terpenes produce the smells we associate with cannabis. Hazes are usually energizing and typically have high amounts of terpinolene while Citrus aromas come from terpenes like myrcene and limonene. Citrus aromas can help people focus or induce anxiety depending on the individual. Pine smells come from pinene while Linalool is associated with lavender and de-stressing. Terpenes have been known to carry more THC across the blood-brain barrier. This is why a strain can be extra effective, despite having high THC or having low THC numbers.

If the buds look pretty and the budtender confidently says it should help provide the kind of high you’re looking for, don’t overthink the purchase. We suggest you try it out. The best way to know if cannabis is worth trying or not is to ask questions and then just try it. If the buds are thick, full, fluffy, covered in trichomes, or if they don’t look dried out, why not try them?

A Real Review Of Blue Rush OG From GreenRush

Blue Rush OG is a GreenRush staple. A short and squatty version of Blue Dream, Blue Rush OG brings together Blue Dream with Pineapple OG. This terp sauce isn’t sauce at all, it’s more like crumbly wax that shines brightly in the light. Maybe it’s supposed to say terp sugar? These waxy crystals aren’t that sticky, which can make them more tricky to work on your dab tool. A scoop will be the best-shaped tool to get the job done easily.

The Blue Rush OG doesn’t have much of a smell. Light floral with an occasional berry note. However, the flavor will slap you in the mouth. Berries and pineapples overwhelmed my pallet as I exhaled a cloud of smoke. Taking a second dab to confirm and that flavor was front and center once again. It’s interesting that this wax has such little aroma, but a powerful flavor.

This strain is a definite mood enhancer. Even after a long day, a couple dabs of the Blue Rush OG calmed me down and put my mindset in a better place so I could squeeze out a few more hours of work. I recommend using this strain before going out for the night. It’s bound to enhance any concert, comedy show, or anything else you’re attending, especially if you’re going out for Memorial Day weekend, whether that be out drinking, boating, whatever.

Why Hand-Trimmed Cannabis Is Better Than Machine-Trimmed

Ever since our team launched our new extraction lab, we’ve been dabbing like crazy. Utilizing April 20th, as an excuse to show extra love to cannabis flower, it was nice to once again experience the different type of high that concentrates typically blow right through. We smoked all kinds of flower from different parts of Washington state and it was crazy to see a bunch of different weed that came from different trimming styles.

It would seem that the cheaper side and lower quality of cannabis received the roughest treatment for trimming. Machine-trimmed cannabis has always received a bad rap for damaging trichomes and flower buds in such a way that they end up looking all the same.

With Cinco de Mayo less than two weeks away, now is the time to learn about the difference between hand-trimmed cannabis and machine-trimmed. Start thinking about how you’re celebrating Cinco. Food, dabs, drinks, joints with friends, and plenty of GreenRush strains.

https://www.facebook.com/GreenRush502/videos/1050382628458410/

We don’t advise consuming middle-level, mid-grade, or “cheap” cannabis. Doing that would be like consuming the cheapest type of alcohol. Yes, you’ll be drunk, or in this case high, but the route you took to get there didn’t taste great and it certainly wasn’t memorable in the right way. Machine-trimmed cannabis also falls in line with this general statement because it does in fact put strain on the buds and damages trichomes.

At the end of the day, you’re going to buy whatever cannabis makes the most sense to you. For Cinco, we recommend this list of strains that focuses on providing some kind of energy boost, cerebral, or attention-getting high. Oregon Diesel, Blue Dream, Golden Panda, Locktite, and Pineapple Dream definitely are first to mind.

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.

Dab This Eat That: Benjarong Thai Restaurant In Monroe, WA

The Pacific Northwest is home to many different cultures and cuisines. Most recently and thanks to social media, Seattle and Washington has become known for “teryaki.” This sweet and tangy chicken, rice, and salad dish has become a staple in just about every city.

This type of food, albeit entirely different from many others served at notable restaurants, has overshadowed other cuisines that bring an elevated experience to the region. One example is Benjarong Thai in Monroe, a city located a little more than an hour away from downtown Seattle.

When you ask people what the best food is around Marysville, Monroe, Mount Vernon, and even Everett, Benjarong Thai is frequently mentioned. Known for having a wonderful menu, this Thai restaurant offers lunch combinations, noodle dishes, entrees, curries, rice dishes, and a full dinner menu with appetizers.

NFL Week 8 Highlight Round Up With Blue Dream Pre-Rolls

Pre-rolls tend to suck because they are rolled with shake. It tends to be the stuff that wouldn’t be sold as bud that ends up as pre-rolled joints. Make sure to ask your budtender to give you pre-rolls only proven to have been rolled with flower. GreenRush might be and should be one of their suggestions. Only big-beautiful buds are broken down and rolled up.

Blue Dream is a great strain to experience in a joint because it’s a mellow sativa hybrid that can be enjoyed during any situation. Smoke the whole thing and you won’t have to worry about getting too paranoid or bogged down. This strain is an enhancer in the truest sense of the word.

Light one, and smoke it to the crutch while you watch the dopest highlights from week 8 of the NFL.

Learn About The Snoop’s Dream Strain

Many celebrities have cannabis strains named after them. Willy Nelson has Willy’s Wonder Kush. Margaret Cho has Margaret Cho-G. Marshawn Lynch as BeastMode OG and oven Barack Obama has a strain called Obama Kush. Some make more sense than others, one that makes the more sense than most is Snoop’s Dream. The cannabis strain named after none other than Snoop D-O- Double-G himself.

Some people think the original Snoop’s Dream is just a random phenotype of Blue Dream that Snoop Dogg liked enough to buy pounds and pounds of. While there may be some truth to that, Snoop’s Dream still became its own strain. It’s the product of breeding Master Kush with Blue Dream, reportedly two of the Rappers favorite strains, per the Cannabist.

Learn About The Snoop's Dream Strain

Master Kush is bred from two different Hindu landrace strains. The Dutch White Label Seed Company breeds this straight indica. Master Kush has all the relaxation and body buzzing effects, but with a touch more mental awareness than you’d expect with an indica, Leafly reports.

It seems everyone loves Blue Dream. Snoop Dogg is a legendary rapper, and cannabis influencer. He has the connections to smoke anything he wants, and he still loves Blue Dream. This is telling of Blue Dream’s stable genetic profile that carries bag appeal, terpenes, and effect.

Snoop’s Dream look takes after the Blue Dream. With eye-catching bag appeal and indigo-blue sprinkles throughout dark green flower and widespread, bright orange hairs. The berry terpenes are noticeable in the aroma profile, with Master Kush’s earthy and piney taste spotlighted in the taste, Leafly reports.

If you love Blue Dream, but you’re looking for something a little more potent for you next Halloween movie marathon, Blue Rush OG is the flower to pick up. Blue Rush OG is crossed between Pineapple OG and Blue Dream. This plant looks like a short, plump version of Blue Dream, the flower is a bit denser but just as frosty with a terpene profile that has equal hints of berries and sweet pineapple.

The high from this strain is similar, with more sedation courtesy  Pineapple OG’s genetics. Grab a couple pre-rolls and don’t miss a single scare because you were loading the bong. Now that the cannabis is picked out, what scary movie to pair with it? How about a horror show?

American Horror Story is the FX anthology series that deep dives into humanity’s proclivity for violence and depravity. This is the seventh season and the argument can be made that this is the best season yet. The show lost some steam for a few season but has regained momentum. The opening scenes of the series are real life 2017 election footage; Trump fans cheering and boisterous, while Clinton fans crying and devastated at the election results. This season is an exaggerated commentary about the worst parts of two-party politics, social justice, gender politics and other social issues.

The 8th episode just premiered, so it’s not too late to binge watch the season and catch up before the season finale in three weeks.

Blue Dream Strain Spotlight

Blue Dream is one of the most recognized strains of cannabis there is. A cross between Blueberry and Super Silver Haze, in 2015, it was the highest selling strain in both Washington and Colorado’s recreational markets. It’s the strain the plug always had back before a recreational market existed, or at least, that’s what they told you it was “Blue Dream.” The strain has been granted “legendary status” by Leafly.

Green Rush’s Blue Dream has shades of indigo and blue sprinkled under a trichrome crust. The flowers and grow structures are fluffy and tall. The height and yield are awesome. Pair that with a low flowering time at around eight weeks makes this not only joy for smokers but farmers too.

Look no further than Blue Dream’s genetics to find out why she’s wildly popular. Super Silver Haze is a product of Green House Seeds and was a three-time Cannabis Cup winner throughout the 1990’s, according to Leafly. This skunky, hazy sativa provides Blue Dream with cerebral enhancing qualities.

Blueberry by DJ Short took home Best Indica at the 2000 Cannabis Cup. The sweet berry terpene profile and sedative effects balance out the Super Silver Haze and create a hybrid in the truest since of the word.

This strain is perfect for the blue-collar or beginner smoker. This one is made for a day time smoke, slight body effects with a good amount of mental stimulation, but none of the drowsiness from a heavy indica or the raciness from a strong sativa.

This strain is a “sativa lovers dream,” Blake Brush, Lead Grower of Green Rush exuded.
