Head’s up sons and grand-sons! It’s almost too late for the most important, my bad, the next to most important holiday in the year, Mother’s Day being the most important holiday… Need I explain this with your mom in the room?
If you are like me, Father’s Day is a year-in-year-out blur of coffee mugs and mouse pads that read all sorts of corny statements, or that ubiquitous necktie which falls to the bottom of the closet, never to be seen again. But there should be a larger meaning behind the term, Father’s Day. It is the one day a year that we pay homage to our own fathers. With that said, may I make some suggestions? Don’t fall prey to the typical nor the mundane. I may not have a father, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t make some Father’s Day suggestions on ultra-epicurean cannabis flowers? My own father would have been absolutely horrified that I would make any such recommendations for his day, but that shouldn’t stop you from reading on and making your purchases accordingly. After all, fathers like nice things, yet they may not have the time, nor the inclination to shop for epicurean cannabis flowers that are out of their swim-lane. That is where I can be very helpful. My job is simple, find flowers that resonate with me. This is more difficult than it seems with dozens of hand-tended farms out there, each doing their best for the craft, interested in participating. I can only cover so many in the space at my disposal! My apologies!
May I please recommend a Stonedware Pipe for your dad’s endeavors? You’ll need a handmade and artist designed pipe, why not this one?
Cherry Pie by Belushi’s Farm
What began as 13 acres on the Rogue River, evolved to 93 acres with 1,800 feet of Rogue River riverfront in Southern Oregon’s Banana Belt where the sun, water and air make the perfect combination to sustain naturally powerful and beautiful cannabis grown by the Belushi’s Farm team. “Hands down, our Cherry Pie is my favorite,” says Belushi’s Farm founder, performer and activist Jim Belushi. “We call it “The Marriage Counselor” — after I’ve taken a hit, my wife always says, “Well, aren’t YOU being charming tonight!” and I say, “Am I?” A cross between Grand Daddy Purple and Durban Poison, Cherry Pie’s strong terpene profile is akin to “biting into a sweet cherry pie on a cool summer’s day.” Cherry Pie hits right in the middle of its two parents, creating a balanced hybrid. Belushi’s Private Vault, which includes Cherry Pie alongside Black Diamond OG, Blue Dragon, Snowman Cookies, Chocolate Hashberry, Jeffrey Iverson’s award winning Nilla Wafers (the smoke that brought Jim into the business) among others, is a line of cannabis flower from Belushi’s Farm sold at select dispensaries in Oregon.
If the flow of the universe intrigues your dad to dream more and work less, then maybe this lower THC line of Biodynamically influenced cannabis flowers will pique his smile and his intellect. There is magic in each richly textured draw, using whatever method he enjoys best. Maybe he would enjoy a Vitae Water Pipe to inhale the healing goodness of these philosophically empirical cultivars? My friends, you’ll get plenty of relief from their well-curated strains, but as far as chasing THC? You are heading down the wrong path in my opinion. Maybe this is a new rationale of thinking? Chasing THC is flawed thinking, just like Mezcal never has a worm and rum is not dark by natural means. Ha!
Cookie Confundo by AlpinStash
“This is our first cultivar whose parents are both AlpinStash Originals (Platinum Tiger Cookies x Grape Grimoire), and she is one of our favorites to date,” shares AlpinStash founder, cultivator and prolific breeder Danny Murr-Sloat. “She gets her nose mostly from her mom with a predominant cake/cookie smell that has a hint of vanilla on the back end; and while this transfers through to the taste, Cookie Confundo gets her distinctive floral chem dominant exhale from her father and our signature glass cure ensures a smooth and flavorful smoke. Since Cookie Confundo is a hybrid, it’s the perfect anytime smoke— great at encouraging a relaxing mindset, yet enhancing any type of physical activity. Plus, this flower lends herself very well to a flow state.” One of the most revered micro-cultivation brands in Colorado, AlpinStash’s secret is keeping operations small-scale and paying attention to the finest details. In addition to Cookie Confundo, Murr-Sloat’s Lemmiwinks, Sparrow King, Falkor, Grape Grimoire, and Platinum Tiger Cookies cultivars are flying off the shelves, which is especially notable in a state where the retail system pays little homage to growers, if at all.
They let me into their world, if only for a few short hours. That’s all it took for me to forever be a fan of their “cultivated like wine” ultra-epicurean” cannabis products. It was that simple. If in Oregon, find it for dad.
Canndescent exudes the type of quality that you would be proud to let your dad know about. And the owner of this company is an entrepreneurial success story. That in itself is reason to research this flower, you can taste the art in every puff.
Their name says it all with quality as the predetermination for care. I’m a massive fan of NUG and should you find some in California, let your dad know that nug means a nugget of goodness. That’s really what Nug represents to me. Dad will dig it too.
Aster Farms “Day To Night” Pack.
The Aster Farms “Day To Night” pack was born out of the need for variety. This handy pre-roll pack takes consumers from “day” to “night” with five different strains using their sun-scape as a guide: Sour Lemonade (the nose is both sweet and sour like the name suggests), Maui OG (notes of citrus and pineapple), Deep Sour Kush, Paris OG (an earthy OG nose with a hint of citrus), and Magic Wand. Each sungrown and pesticide free pre-roll from Northern California offers a different experience — sunrise, radiant, sunset, moonlight and outer space — recommended for the time of day or desired effects. The product is perfect as a party pack, personal pack or for those looking to better understand strains they enjoy. $40-49 at your local California retailer.
The place that changed my life is in the mountains. The sky unfolds like origami every morning without fail nurturing the earth with the rays from the sun. Sometimes vast fogs sweep in from the ocean draping everything in mist. The sun works its way through, leaving your dad wondering how delicious Father’s Day really is when he is remembered.
Island Cannabis– They make me smile and dad will too. They produce quality. Island’s flower is as natural as it gets. Artisanal quality, 100% natural flower. Each freshly harvested batch is packages into compact glass containers to maximize freshness, flavor, and integrity.
