Ep. 5 Revolution BlackBerry Kush, Canada Runs Out of Cannabis & Cresco Goes Public
This week in cannabis culture – Canada, again! We continue our discussion of Canada’s “Legalization Day” and add a few fun facts – like just what mishkiki is and why it’s important Native Canadian indigenous peoples and the cannabis outage that happened within 24 hours of legalization day. On the more serious front, we talk about Cresco’s potential rise to monolithic, marijuana monopolies. Cresco has recently expanded into Arizona and acquired another Dispensary in Illinois. Then we have a great strain review tucked away in the still too creaky stash box. Plus a Canadian themed stoner story gathered from our own travels. Give us a listen and join in on the potcast!
Strain Review: Blackberry Kush from Revolution Enterprises
Blackberry Kush from Revolution Enterprises made here in Illinois is a nice strong indica strain, it’s not too strong but delivers a very relaxed comfortable high, and Its derived from the popular afghani kush and blackberry strains.
Method of Consumption: Flower
Aesthetics: Purple. I love any buds that are purple…its just so much more appealing to look at especially with those orange hairs! These buds tend to be very dense but under each layer covered with THC crystals. so it really contrasts that nice purple color of the buds.
Aroma: the perfect Halloween potpourri! it has a strong sweet berry scent to it, leave it out for those trick or treaters to get a whiff of…on second thought, keep it in a safe place away from children…
Flavor profile: Favorite Halloween cannabis flavor profile, it’s not a great strain to take one puff off of because it tastes so good! its got a very sweet berry taste to it that keeps you wanting more.
Medical Benefits: Blackberry kush has a very strong medical effect on stress, pain, insomnia, and depression, and secondary medicinal effects would be lack of appetite. It’s great if you have a lot of pain and have a hard time falling asleep because of the strong indica effects.
Recreational: When you want to just chill and watch a movie or hang out with a few good friends to plop on a couch waiting for the hordes of tricker treaters this is a great strain for you. It induces a strong heavy relaxed euphoria with a nice happy mood enhancement, so be careful you remember to answer the door. It’s also great if you want to eat too much Halloween candy because it will give you an appetite.
Negative effects: as always, you can’t have too much of a good thing…if you do you will experience very dry eyes and mouth with the possibility of dizziness. if you indulge in a way too much of this strain it can induce a slight anxiousness as well.
