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.

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?

GreenRush Halloween Strains That Will Scare The Senses

9# Hammer

Many people still don’t know much about cannabis and that is holding major parts of the industry back. The fewer consumers know, the less they’ll buy. People do need to do their own research but it is our job to give them a place to learn, connect, and safely use cannabis.

Best Practices For Buying Weed In Washington

Many people are currently visiting pot shops and asking for the weed with the highest THC. While THC is a huge part of the cannabis purchasing equation, there is much more to be looking for than just high percentages. When you’re in Washington, THC only matters so much due to the inconsistencies of the testing at the state-certified labs.

This makes someone’s experience and budtender feedback much more important. One of the first things you should be looking for at weed stores is who the actual experts are. You’ve got to find budtenders you can trust!

Find Budtenders You Trust

We’ve all been to a grocery store or maybe to the mall and experienced a terrible employee. The cannabis industry is not immune to budtenders being terrible employees. They’re not all equal and some are a combination of rude, uneducated, and inexperienced.  Just because you love being high, doesn’t mean you’re educated and up on all things cannabis, it just means you love getting high.

Look and listen for a budtender that is educated about the products you’re asking about. Millions of people use cannabis. If a budtender can only describe weed as “fire” or “dank”, you might want to take what they say with a grain of salt. Find someone who can communicate with you and other people. Being able articulate strain knowledge in a digestible manner is huge and many stores overlook this valuable asset.

Locate a budtender that can teach you about flavor profiles and terpenes, different genetics that you’ve mentioned you like, how concentrates are extracted and created, and the differences between concentrates. You can’t look at the product outside of packaging in Washington, so budtenders are extra important to relay product information. To find someone who knows all of this stuff is tricky. It takes time, patience, and you’ve got to be willing to be taught something new.

Cannabis Company Knowledge

There are over a thousand cannabis brands in Washington and many of them offer more than one strain or product. The majority of them can be found online via their website or social media. These companies utilize these platforms to educate consumers on new products, current offerings, deals, retail and other partners, plus much more. If you look for transparent brands that do a solid job of communicating product information, there’s a good chance you’re consuming safer products.

Terpenes > THC Numbers

People are still learning about terpenes and why they matter. Although THC packs the psychoactive effects, terpenes and THC combined dictates the specific effects strain by strain. Terpenes produce the aromas we smell and taste with cannabis. Citrus aromas come from terpenes myrcene and limonene. Hazes have terpinolene. Pine aromas come from pinene. Some of these terpenes help more THC cross the blood-brain barrier, which is why a strain can be more effective, despite having low THC numbers. If you find out what terpenes were present in the weed you like, you can shop specifically for that with other brands and strains.

Be A Shallow Shopper

Not all cannabis is equal. In our state, the way you produce and process your cannabis can be the difference between sitting on a shelf for a year or selling out in a single day. If the weed looks good and you can smell it through the bag or through the glass, buy it. Simple as that.

If the cannabis buds are covered in trichomes or if the flowers feel or sound dense when you shake the container,  buy it. Even if the cannabis ends up being a poor smoke you’ll at least know more about what you’re going for. Good looking weed with lower THC numbers is generally always a better situation than higher THC cannabis that is cheaper, more dry, and outdoor.

Level Up Your Experience!

The overwhelming majority of people still don’t know a damn thing about cannabis. THC matters. Terpenes matter. Moisture, hand-trimming, and trichomes all matter! Until you know more about your cannabis and begin experiencing the different types of flavors and highs, you can really only learn so much. Go find a pot shop, locate a budtender you vibe with, and take a leap of faith.

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.

Week 7 NFL Highlight Round Up With Professor Chaos

Professor Chaos is a sativa hybrid that packs a lot more bark than bite. With such a menacing name, you’d think a conscious slashing experience would follow. What you get is a mellow brain buzz with some body relaxation too. I like using Professor Chaos before I cook or grocery shop. It helps me get creative with the recipes and in the kitchen, but I digress, let’s watch some football.

Week 7 NFL Highlight Round Up With Professor Chaos

Week 7 was a good one. Many had several lead changes and down to the wire finishes. Smoke some Professor Chaos, enjoy these highlights while I lament my fourth straight fantasy football loss in a row because I left 90 points on my bench.

Falcons Vs Patriots 

The Falcons are still hung over from their Super Bowl loss.

Steelers vs Bengals

The Steelers beat the Bengals again,  witness the greatest TD celebration to date.

Bears vs Panthers

The Bears summon a defensive juggernaut as they win with two defensive TD’s.

Saints vs Packers

Aaron Rodgers is on IR, so you can guess how the Packers looked.

Jets vs Dolphins 

Dolphins rally late to win in this NFC East showdown.

Seahawks vs Giants

The Seahawks start slow, but still find enough to beat the WR-less Giants.

Rams vs Cardinals

Goff and Gurley continue to roll in the leagues best offense.

Cowboys vs 49er’s

Zeke ate the 9er’s for lunch, and Zak continues to ball out as a top QB in the league.

Ravens vs Vikings

The Ravens are playing like trash and the Vikings take advantage of it.

Bills vs Buccaneers 

The Bills keep figuring out way to win and Bucs can’t quite figure out  how to win. They’re the most exciting  two win team in the league.

Titans vs Browns

Sloppy football. That’s all.

Colts vs Jaguars

Jags beat down the Colts, who basically looked lost today.

Chiefs vs Raiders

An instant classic in the AFC west. This game ended with three plays with 0:00 on the clock.

Chargers vs Broncos 

Chargers are trending up and the Broncos are falling straight down.

THC Is Not The Only Thing That Matters When Purchasing Marijuana

If you ask around the cannabis industry, most reliable budtenders will say that THC is not the only thing that matters when purchasing legal cannabis.

As the people who consume legal weed become more educated, we’re finding that the customer begins to branch out and search for a variety of “flavors,” otherwise known as terpenes. Each strains aroma and taste are primary reasons why people prefer their favorite strains over others.

Terpenes, along with the compounds CBD, CBN, and CBG, are all components of the cannabis plant that help influence a person’s high.

What is a terpene you ask? Our affiliates at Respect My Region and Leafly describe terpenes as  “the essential oils that give the plant it’s aromatic smell as well as its wide flavor profile. These are found in everyday plants such as lavender, pine trees, and rosemary.”

By themselves, terpenes don’t necessarily get you ‘high’. Once you combine the smoking of terpenes with the combustion of THC and add in each person’s body chemistry, that’s when you’ll get a unique experience from session to session.

Learn About The Golden Panda Strain

Golden Panda is a strange strain. It’s all about effect over appeal. A cross between Pineapple OG and Gold Nugget, this strain might not have the pungent aroma and color of other strains in the Green Rush garden, but what Golden Panda lacks in ascetics, it more than makes up for with its high.

Pineapple OG is a cross between the more well-known Pineapple Express and some random OG Kush phenotype, Leafly reports. This is a 70 percent sativa leaning hybrid that packs a peppery pineapple taste with a stiff cerebral buzz.

Gold Nugget is the tropical consequence of mixing Stardawg and the Golden Goat strain, per Leafly. This hybrid is recommended for daytime use because of its mood and creativity-boosting properties.

Learn About The Golden Panda Stain

However, the genetics combine on this one, it comes out a 60/40 indica leaning hybrid, according to Blake Brush, Lead Grower of Green Rush. The trichomes stack brilliantly on the flowers, and the bland aroma, luckily, doesn’t translate to the taste.

The smoke’s taste is something like a lemon OG sour candy. Lemon-lime citrus with hints of pineapple was another was it was described. The terpene profile is prominent and it has a cult following for its “strong stone,” Blake explained.

Indica leaning hybrids are good for winding down after work or on the weekends. The pain relief and body feel will help you recover for your next endeavor. The Pineapple genetics pack enough mental stimulation to keep the couch lock at bay.

Professor Chaos Strain Spotlight

Professor Chaos has a menacing name and lineage to match. The Professor Chaos strain is the wicked daughter of Jack The Ripper and Mad Scientist. Bred by TGA Subcool Seeds, the objective with this strain was to combine the pain killing effects of Mad Scientist with the energizing sativa effects of Jack the Ripper, per Seed Finder.

Professor Chaos is a sativa-hybrid that tests upwards of 20 percent. The stimulating cerebral effects take effect quickly with mellow body relaxation that follows. There was strong mood-enhancing effects once the high hit its peak, however, TGA reports little mood effects with their tests.

Professor Chaos Strain Spotlight

Professor Chaos has beautiful dense nug structure with thin and subtle hairs covering it. The leaves are dark green and purple in color. The trichomes stick to your fingers and sparkle once you crack open bud. The purple stretches throughout the entire bud all the way down to the stem. Blake Brush, Lead Grower of Green Rush’s own mad scientist calls Professor Chaos “LOUD grape dank.”

Professor Chaos has a sour grape haze aroma profile with a strong earthy taste. This strain is a great hybrid, the high is right down the middle: Great pain- relieving effects with mental stimulation and no raciness. The warm and long-lasting effects contradict the scary appearance.

Professor Chaos is a great cannabis strain for post recovery after a hard work out. Pair this with a protein shake to get your head right back in the game. You can also use Professor Chaos after a long night out. Zap the pain and cloudiness away before you get back to work.
