way back when, you smoked whatever weed your dealer had. the advent of legal weed in washington (first medical, then recreational) has made it possible to approach weed the way wine connoisseurs approach wine, reveling in all the differences. with (supposedly) 2500+ strains out there, there's no way anyone's going to try them all, but I've been attempting to get a sense of what's out there in the brave new world of cannabis. my methodology: 1. always consume the same amount 2. avoid too-frequent use to keep my tolerance down 3. keep a record of my experiences, and try every strain at least 3x to make sure my impressions have at least some merit. ----------------------- after trying 70+ strains, bubbleberry's stayed at the top of my list. this reflects my preference for 'project-y' strains that get me out of the chair, not get couchlock. some strains are so energizing they're jittery (e.g. allen wrench), but bubbleberry isn't one of them; it's definitely 'up', very much 'project-y' - and, at least the sample I had, potent. it doesn't seem to be too ubiquitous in seattle these days, but if you like creative strains and see it: highly recommended!
