Mimosa - ForwardGro

"All I can say is funland hits the brain when walking into a room filled with Medical Cannabis."

Hey hey from Big J smoke of the day!  The fantasticly fun people @Forwardgro opened the door to Big J and all my craziness! 

The rain is dropping on the windshield, and the wipers are making the music beat longer, as my feet keep tapping louder. There's an out of place gate on this long winding country road in the middle of nowhere's land.  Big J came high step'n into a beautiful plot of land, that's home to sophisticated Greenhouses and hard working employees. The building's are beyond description, as my eyes float over an amusement park of cannabis.

  • Grower: Forwardgro
  • Strain: Mimosa
  • THCa: 27.8
  • Tools: Car, 10x loope, brain, on site visit, and of course Pax3

Smacking me with pleasure, these almost mature nuggets melt from intense yellowish deep green into such a rich purple color, that looking away is impossible! All their mushroom capped trichomes are display very proudly, and excitement comes on strong while gazing at the fresh mature buds under the 10x loope.

All I can say is funland hits the brain when walking into a room filled with Medical Cannabis. In the presence of these flowers, they where releasing sweet stanky goodness that I've come to truly love. As i found myself floating through a massive field of Mimosa, the citrus candy purple smelling terpenes distort my brain! The Forwardgro team tells me that Clemtine x Purple Punch are the parents of this uplifting herbal danky sativa lean strain. 

This batch of Mimosa's vapor slings me floating pasted unforgettable sense of pain relief, and quickly throws me into the crazy warm worm hole of truly bright sparkling creativity! The ridiculous speedy on set from the first intake of this tight nug lifts me up into a fun happy here comes spring feeling! 

The @Forwardgro team to me, is currently producing fine Medical Cannabis, and from the looks of it there's a lot more exotic flowers coming from those wacky rooms!

  • Smoke up and peace y'all! - Big J!

Guice - Sunmed Growers

Did anyone open up a 'Country Time Lemonade' jar?

March 2018 is the first time I experienced the fresh looking wackiness of Guice. Sunmed's and Curio both grow this glorious flower in Maryland. This time, I'm vaporizing Sunmed's current batch with overwhelming total terps!

All I can say about these over sized yummy and impressively sugar filled buds, is holy wow this is going to be fun! The colors on this beautiful nug bleed from green into a welcoming light rich amber dark brown throughout the foliage. tells me Guice is a hybrid flower that's parents are GG4 x Orange Valley OG, Glue?!

  • Strain: Guice
  • Grower: Sunmeds
  • THCa: 27.1 
  • Terps: 3.45 total
  • Tools: 10x loope, fingers, and of course pax3 and my volcano

Did anyone open up a 'Country Time Lemonade' jar?! Sunmed's really brought out the citrusy sweet flavors of Guice this time! The pungent almost shunky aroma is so strong my eyes water with happiness. These 3.45% terps come popping from the jar, into nose, and without any hesitation the body is ready for the green light on the pax3.  With wack'adoodle terps like this, I chose low temp vaping and extra time to savior all the fine meds. 

Always a heavy terpy rich flower, Guice slings my darkest into the winter rain, passing me so slowly into a joyful quietness of creativity, all while my brain receives a mental cannabis massage. The always enjoyable terpinolene, rails me into a numbing body bath of a I don't care mind giggling forgetfulness, that is truly enjoyable!

Jumping on the Guice train comes easy with this sticky sparkling flower. For me, Guice is truly a medicinal strain that kills mind/body pain and leads me deep into a half baked eyes of the world, that cleanse my darkness away with ease. 

  • Peace and smoke up y'all - Big J


Texas Shoreline Flower Review - Grassroots Cannabis

"A sweet funky hard hitting pungent familiar skunky aroma spikes my nose..."

Hey hey from Big J smoke of the day!  

While discussing cannabis with friends, it always seems goes down the crazy strain talk. Looks like Grassroots has produced an impossible crazy strain to find. Having it confirmed by the grower, this is a "True seed to Sow of #TexasShoreline". I've been informed that these seeds were acquired and are very rear to find... that's all I needed to hear to bring on a smile smile smile!  

  • Grower: Grassroots 
  • Strain: Texas Shoreline
  • THCa: 26.8%
  • Tools: All of them!

Floating in front of my eye's under the 10x loope, the nug displays an almost impossible orangey amber color that fades into a heavily deep lime green foliage. This bud throws me past excitement, with its unbelievable sugary trichomes, wacky fluffiness to the touch, and it's the size of the Texas Shoreline... bring on the grinder! 

A sweet funky hard hitting pungent familiar skunky aroma spikes my nose, this must be the myrcene and limonene in this batch, here comes sunshine! Once this beautiful bud is ground, a powerful stankyness distorts my brain's senses. This is one outrageously fun creative sativa leaning bud that's flavor's are river smooth and feather light. 

As the stress relaxing smoke hits my body, inhibition drops uncontrollably down the shoreline and a strong controllable trippy dreamy like euphoria comes on fast furious. Texas Shoreline brings me quickly to the visual other side, while a forgetful stress free time clips slowly into the rabbit hole of joy! Since the music never stops with this bud, a very talkative pleasant experience is truly enjoyed for hours.

Texas Shoreline for us #deadheads is an almost never find, but @grassroots_md has grown the impossible find for Big J smoke of the day! 

  • Peace and smoke up y'all! - Big J


Blue and Cream - Liberty Cannabis

"As heard through the audio-prism of Digable Planet's classic 90s album Blowout Comb..."

This is the third batch of Blue and Cream in the last two weeks, which is to say I really like this strain of Maryland goodness from Liberty Cannabis and Holistic Industries.

The effects come on pretty quickly and in abundance, hard hitting  and lingers for awhile... Sedative Euphoria is what I would call this Blue and Cream, although the Indica features are pronounced there is enough heady euphoric energy to feel well rounded - Body & Mind with this one like the yin and yang perfectly coiled up against each other.

  • These effects are produced from the 28% total cannabinoids and nearly 2% terpenes of which B Myrcene 0.68% D Limonene 0.69% and B Caryophellene 0.37% being TOP TERPS, combine for one pretty wonderful entourage effect -Sedative Euphoria, see below.

This is some of the finest evening medicine this Connoisseur has had in some time, the best comparison I can make is with Evermore Cannabis Co MD famous - Blue Cookies, those of you in the know will know what I mean.

The sedative body waves roll in after about 20 - 30 mins and the rest of the evening is mellow mania, as heard through the audio-prism of Digable Planet's classic 90s album Blowout Comb which is an appropriate vibe and headspace to enjoy this super fine product.

These little nuggets of purple, green and lime joy are available all throughout MD @ Dispensaries right now for a bargain $60 a quarter @ Health For Life White Marsh and $75 a quarter for a slightly higher THC batch (31%) @ Your Farmacy in Lutherville either batch will do you well and I didn't really notice a difference in appearance between the two.

Lemon Meringue Sunmed Growers

Lemon Meringue - SunMed Growers

"Not quite whistle while you work, but smile for awhile... "

Medicine From The Sun - Lemon Meringue has a very sunny disposition and treats anxiety and mild melancholy with a Sativa Smile 

  • LEMON MERINGUE - Zesty Lemony Treat from SunMed Growers UPDATED BATCH INFO

The Science - 22% total cannabinoids and 2.37% terps with B Caryophelene 0.64% and B Myrcene 0.49% being there top two

  • Lemon Skunk x Cookies & Cream Effects - Lemon Meringue goes straight to the head giving one a very nice jolt of creative euphoric energy, this is a great batch for working and getting things done, not quite whistle while you work, but smile for awhile... the effects come on quickly and linger.

The aroma profile is zesty fresh lemons with a dollop of vanilla creme, which is to say very nice and dreamy... the sweet kind.

Pleasant Vibe - The heady euphoric effects are indeed sunshine for the mind and eventually body as the high dips into a nice fuzzy blissful state after the two hour mark, I would suggest morning and early evening use, but you know... to each their own, the effects might express differently for you, in a phrase... Active Creative High, Body Kind with Flavor.

  • Kudos SunMed on another Connoisseur batch

Chernobyl Cannabis SunMed Growers

Chernobyl - SunMed Growers

Chernobyl is an explosive sativa dominant Connoisseur strain with a 20-80 indica/sativa ratio.... which is to say this is very heady with a huge side of euphoric bliss.

Trainwreck and Trinity provided the genetic material, which is then pollinated with Jack the Ripper (another lovely strain all by itself... Sigh) Colors abound with light green and hazy purple being the top two, the frosty nugs will impress even the most hardcore Connoisseur.

  • This batch testing in @ 29% Total Cannabinoids and 2.3% Terpenes for One Wonderful Entourage Effect


Chernobyl has a potent gas smell to it with lime and citrus undertones making it a funky aromatic strain, but how about that flavor? it is exquisite. It has a smooth deep taste that resembles its smell. Upon exhale you'll feel the expanding smoke exit the lungs with some spicy overtones... Color me impressed.


The high is hard hitting and it def lingers awhile... I have found this potent medicine will keep on chugging for hours and hours, good for your hard earned dollars.

The experience - euphoria with a nice jolt of energetic headiness. The high will wash away any anxiety or stress is highly recommended for day time use. 


Smoking the strain has also shown to increase appetite which is perfect for individuals suffering anorexia or wasting syndrome. Chernobyl is also known to benefit patients with migraines or headaches... I can personally attest to this.

Diesel Dough - Culta Cannabis

"This strain reminds me of Jack or Cindy 99..."

Greetings and good morning fellow connoisseurs... As promised here's the goods on Culta's premium batches. First off the packaging was different... Glass which is a very classy presentation.

Then the next thing you notice is the aroma... Very intense and pungent, this is a very piney earthy terp profile, then the next thing you notice is the superb bag appeal of this strain as you can plainly see Culta's got it going on in this dept.

Then there's the effects... Immediate euphoria in that awesome sativa dom way that's delivered very heady... Gets the creative juices flowing, balanced with the high Myrcene level... Great rush of thoughts and ideas sans the anxiety of some strong sativa strains, a very narrow needle Culta successfully threaded with this one. And I should add goes great with coffee and wake and bake people.

This strain reminds me of Jack or Cindy 99.. Very hazy and energetic... Strain for day time use when you need energy and out of the box thinking.. Kudos Culta.

THC and THCa 29.1%
A-pinene 0.08%
B-pinene 0.11%

Genetics + Background

Pink Lemonade is an indica dominant hybrid strain, that crosses Strawberry Fields x Sunset Sherbert.

Pink Lemonade is one very tasty bud that’s a big hit with indica lovers,it has a flavor that is as its name suggests – sweet cotton candy delights with a hint of gas

The Pink Lemonade Experience

The Pink Lemonade HIGH is as amazing as the intense nose, with some uplifting effects that has no cerebral limit... You'll have to wait a moment as the creep on this batch is noticeable, but when it hits, it hits big... just like the flavor profile

  • Pink Lemonade buds have bright light minty green spade-shaped nugs with bright orange hairs + a thick blanket of frosty golden amber crystal trichomes... We @ MC give this strain and particular batch two BIG thumbs UP! 👍👍


Purple Obeah - Evermore Cannabis

"Very very purple dank grapes smell waft up from the container..."

Aromatherapy with Purple Obeah and Evermore

The smell is simply amazing on this sample from Evermore Brands Very very purple dank grapes smell waft up from the container and let's you know this strain means some serious business... Pain Relief with a capital P.

Tests @ 15.5% THC but don't let that lull you into thinking this is a lightweight... On the contrary this strain and it's well developed terp  profile satisfies even this high tolerance Connoisseur CBG and CBGA, B Myrcene are well represented.

The medium-mellow powered effects trail off after about an hour or so... so be prepared to top up, I have found this is a GREAT strain to add a dab of concentrate, the heavy terp profile only adds to the extra raw THC pleasure.

Enjoy It fellow Connoisseurs...

Blue Cookies - Evermore Cannabis

"Blue Cookies hits fast beginning with a buzzing head high that might take some people by surprise."

Intense Evening Medicine - Blue Cookies from Evermore with The Maryland Connoisseur

There has been pretty intense interest in this strain so I'm glad to finally review it here... What I can say is this, this strain is relaxation supreme after an intense 30 mins on the upside.


  • 29.19% THC
  • 0.43% CBGA
  • 0.12% CBD

Blue Cookies traces its lineage to legendary champion cannabis hybrid strains Girl Scout Cookies and Blueberry. This is a mostly Indica strain with high THC value, making it a highly potent cannabis.


Blue Cookies hits fast beginning with a buzzing head high that might take some people by surprise. It is soon followed by an intense physical high that slightly mellows down the head high. As soon as the effects of this strain kick in, you almost immediately feel a liberating feeling as your mood takes a turn towards euphoria. As the mental high and physical high starts blending in, not only do you feel extremely happy, you also start to relax


One thing that many cannabis aficionados love about Blue Cookies is that it has a pleasant smell. Imagine how enticing it is to smell something sweet and dank with a fruity note, and instinctively, you feel like wanting to taste it.


This strain is smooth and has a sweet candy like flavor that will no doubt delight you. Upon exhalation, you might detect a hint of berry, a taste that is universally liked. In fact, Blue Cookies is one of the best-tasting cannabis strains that you could get your hands on.


Sugar Biscuits - Culta Cannabis

It's great for unwinding at the end of a long day without being completely incapacitated

MC Fan Favorite - Sugar Biscuits with Culta and The Maryland Connoisseur

I have been waiting anxiously for this one... And the wait was well worth it. MC and @cultaig new fan favorite... Sugar Biscuits. 

An intense and fairly heavy hybrid testing @ 25% total cannabinoids and a WICKED terpene profile @ 1.20% 🔥 B Myrcene and B Caryophelene the two most prominent terps.

  • Animal Cookies x Dosidos - Archive Seeds

Effects and Genetics

The effects come on quickly and the onset is pretty intense... expect some initial anxiety as this strain goes straight for the heady head at first and it's a wild ride until the body waves roll in after about 20 minutes. 

It's great for unwinding at the end of the day without being incapacitated and serves to prepare the body and mind for a night of restful sleep. 

This strain started off with a little mental boost, serving to slap you awake a little bit with its potency. Beyond the unique physical sensations with this one, it moved quickly into an Indica state of goofy, slightly lazy relaxation where mental function was intact, but just barely. 

More From Archive:

"The 09 Animal Cookies is one of the best “cookie” clones out there. Dense bulbous trichomes adorn the beautiful purple and black leafed buds. Dense is an understatement. Some of the phenotypes are almost like stones. A great yielding, flavorful, colorful mix of the best genes in the Kush and Cookie kingdoms."
