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."

Rocket Fuel - Culta Cannabis

More Maryland Fire  Starring - ROCKET FUEL from Culta Cannabis Co - HIGHLY Recommend

  • Jet Fuel OG x Face Off Bx1 

Testing in at 30% total cannabinoids say hello to another MD 30 Percent Club member

Rocket Fuel is one of those rare indica dominant hybrid strain (70% indica/30% sativa) that was born through crossing the classic strains Jet Fuel OG x Face Off Bx1 , hard to find sometimes, but Culta has got your back by consistently bringing this Connoisseur strain into the market.

Rocket Fuel is a total treat for the true Indica lover... with cannabinoid levels over 25-32% try to do just one hit and hang back 5 minutes, the creep is real but when it hits... true One Hit Wonder this lovely flower just does it (Thanks Nike)

Like the name implies the HIGH is like a rocket ship to the euphoric edges, the initial rush comes on very strong after some hesitation, so be prepared to just sit and enjoy the cerebral euphoria, it's kind of explosive

Then... The relaxation comes on in waves after about the 30 min mark, voila this is what you've been waiting for all day, please use sparingly at first until you know your tolerance level. The bud itself is one lovely lady as you can see.

Treats conditions such as insomnia and brings on immediate head ache relief, better than Advil... just saying.

More On The Strain:

Blissful Wizard is a hybrid strain created through a cross of the powerful Captain’s Cookies X Girl Scout Cookies strains.

This tasty bud is a favorite to use to make hash because of its powerful effects and enticing flavor. The Blissful Wizard high is just as happy as you’d imagine, with a blissful euphoric onset that launches your mind into a hazy state of complete happiness. As your mood builds and builds you’ll find yourself becoming more and more talkative with no real filter on what you say. 

A Whole Lotta LOL...

You may succumb to uncontrollable fits of laughter at the slightest hint of humor that can leave you gasping for breath. These cerebral effects are anchored by a relaxed body buzz that rids you of any pain or spasms. Because of these effects and its insanely high average THC level of about 36%, Blissful Wizard is a favorite bud for treating conditions such as chronic pain, inflammation, chronic fatigue, muscle spasms or tremors, and nausea. 

  • This bud has a delicious flavor of sweet apple with a hint of floral earth that is surprisingly pungent upon exhale. The smell is of sweet granny smith apples with an earthy tinge."


Blueberry Muffins - Evermore Cannabis

Fresh + Intoxicating Blueberry Aroma In The Morning... Nice Wake & Bake Strain

Blueberry x PPD

My wife is a non-smoker without much cannabis knowledge so to speak... That makes her a perfect "Smell" tester as she does not carry the "baggage" of pre-conceived notion, that being said, her aroma profile is very well developed as she comes from the "Wine" crowd... Middle aged professional ladies who love their Wine.

  • So when I popped this container open and she immediately wondered out loud "where are the berries?" I knew that Evermore had done its job well.

Evermore is certainly making a name for itself in the so called "Fruity" strains as evidenced by their pretty incredible aromatic current line-up:

  • Pink Lemonade
  • Strawberry Cookies
  • Tropical Sunset
  • Purple Obeah
  • Blueberry Cereal

This particular batch test in at 25% plus total cannabinoids and over 2% terpenes which is the minimum threshold for great terps, the top terps being: B Myrcene 1.36% and B Caryophyllene @ 0.34%. You can tell right off that bat that this batch is going to be great for overall chronic pain reduction and will help with stress and insomnia... and it does.

With a knockout aroma profile and enough THC to punch through even the most "Connoisseur" tolerances this batch is very KIND the effects are Indica in nature to this Connoisseur it might work a bit differently for you, but being an overall sedative strain this helps with relaxation as well, nothing overpowering but nice nonetheless.

  • Goes well with morning coffee and equally with that after dinner spliff... Gotta love those hybrids and Kudos Evermore Cannabis Co


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

The Science - 27% total cannabinoids and 1.80% 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


Hazmat OG - Culta Cannabis

"The nose on this batch is very earthy-skunky with some gassy overtones..."

Chem 91 x Face Off OG Bx1

The experience begins with a head-rush of strong cerebral euphoric bliss with just enough solid grounding to enjoy on a night out with buds... The mind soars while your body will eventually nod off into a pleasant heavy body high... Oh and the music sounds really cool too!

Hazmat OG is a rare "Connoisseur" strain if you can find it in dispensaries, it is slightly sativa dominant - 60% sativa/40% indica created through a cross of the noted classic strains. Hazmat OG is good for times when one requires a bit of creative mental energy but needs to relax as well.

The nose on this batch is very earthy-skunky with some gassy overtones. This batch has orange green flowers with long orange hairs, rich purple undertones, and is frosty AF... as you can plainly see.

This batch of Hazmat OG seems to treat conditions such as depression, chronic pain and chronic anxiety on the medical side of things.

  • Kudos Culta and Archive!


Sherb Breath - SunMed Growers

"Truly these are some of SunMed Growers prettiest flowers that we've seen so far, & we've seen many"

These flowers are superb as you can plainly see, Sherb Breath is an Indica hybrid strain that will inspire connoisseurs to appreciate the subtle goodness of this fine specimen... Please read further. 

It has an enveloping earthy sweetness to the nose with a similar flavor profile... all good things. Sherb Breath is kind for treating chronic stress, insomnia, chronic pain, and anxiety. Best for evening or late afternoon usage, with particular care being paid to multiple doses that can easily lead to couch-lock.

  • Genetics: Sunset Sherbert x Mendo Breath

The flower itself has a very sweet yet musty dank candy flavor and an earthy aroma profile. Sherb Breath buds are covered in thick trichomes with hints of minty green and orange with purple dominating the overall color palate... truly these are some of SunMed Growers prettiest flowers that we've seen so far, and we've seen many over here @ MC.

The fairly intense high provides imaginative + creative energy mixed with subtle relaxation that will ease aches and pain without leaving you sleepy or overly sedated. Creeper Kind - The onset comes on slow and smooth, gradually lifting your mood while imbuing you with a sense of surreal bliss, for at least a few hours.

  • Overall - Very Good / Great


Green Crack #2 - SunMed Growers

GC2 is massively potent + uniquely cerebral, with total cannabinoid levels reaching 26%

An update to a fan favorite - Green Crack is most often sativa dominant, but there's also an indica-heavy version of the strain that is a bit more rare to find... well worth it though for indica lovers. 

Snoop Dogg nailed the name back in the 90s, although it's also known as Green Cush or just simply Cush among heads who prefer not to reference crack-cocaine. 

Green Crack #2 is massively potent + uniquely cerebral, with total cannabinoid levels reaching 26%. It has a sativa/indica ratio of 60/40. The high is decidedly heady and kindly euphoric, with a big good-mood boost and a jolt of creative energy... good for writing and really nice for music listening if that's your thing, slightly psychedelic. 

This strain helps to spur creativity and helps patients get things done with a smile. It's effective in treating anxiety and depression, ADHD, PTSD, with migraines being whisked away. Green Crack #2 has a super sweet flavor the nose on this batch was reminiscent of a good Durban Poison, but less chemmy and more earthy, the aroma eventually expresses itself with tropical and citrus notes... cotton candy kind.

This phenotype leans toward Skunk #1 with a pointed bud structure and tons of orange hairs, the buds are dense and tight as you can plainly see with bright orange pistols against the light-lime green makes for a very nice presentation.

  • Overall very good to great


OG Kush - SunMed Growers

"After partaking of OG Kush, expect some strong euphoria mixed with intense cerebral effects..."

OG Kush is known as a structural backbone of many premium cannabis strains, OG Kush has been one of the most popular types of bud available on the legal market in recent years, although it shares a name that’s nearly as popular as say Northern Lights or White Widow, the origins of this powerful cannabis strain still largely remain a mystery.

Hindu Kush x Northern California OG

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of sniffing top-shelf OG Kush, you’ll know that the buds have one of the aromatic scents that nature can produce – intensely nostalgic... Old School, best of the 90s lost strains and long forgotten batches.

The strain’s aroma is woodsy, piney and earthy + some caramel  all at once, it immediately hits your taste buds with a spike in pleasure via sight, smell and taste... Its flavor can surprise even the most jaded of self-proclaimed connoisseurs, with none-too-subtle undertones of lemon lime fresh citrus.

Appearance-wise... OG Kush has a fairly “traditional cannabis” look, as it features the classic yellow-green sugar leaf color with orange pistils and green leaves, as you can see from this well-trimmed image from SunMed's latest batch.

After partaking of OG Kush, expect some strong euphoria mixed with intense cerebral effects to settle in, not overwhelming but nice, often followed by mild to strong couch-lock. OG Kush is considered one of the most uplifting strains, as it provides Maryland patients with a wonderful combination of body-melting euphoria and a calm, tranquil state of mind.

Stress, chronic pain and insomnia are reportedly helped with this strain, we can personally attest to the insomnia slaying powers of OG Kush in high doses, use cautiously especially if your tolerance is low to middle average.

Hot Rod - SunMed Growers

Flower Power - HOT ROD a Powerful Indica Hybrid from SunMed Growers

Hot Rod is a rare connoisseur indica dominant hybrid strain created by crossing Motorbreath x Grandpa's Breath. 

Those of you who don't like an intense flavor or smell, keep moving. Hot Rod combines the best of some of the more aromatic buds, creating a smell that will more than likely leave you begging for more. It brings together rotting skunk with a spicy diesel and fuel for a truly acrid smell that is not for the faint. The flavor isn't near as intense, following a light earthy profile with a hint of spicy savory diesel as you exhale.... Ah relief!

Motorbreath x Grandpa's Breath 🌿 Tests in at 26% Total Cannabinoids - Hard Hitting and Lingers Awhile

The Hot Rod high follows the same kind of burning intensity as the aroma suggests, it smashes through your mind and body before leaving you sleepy and blissful in its wake. The high starts with a rush of electric euphoric effects that crash into your mind... nicely. Hot Rod knocks out any negative or racing thoughts and replacing them with pure evening and late night bliss. This effect quickly turns very stoney, leaving you giggling @ random.

This all soon turns sleepy, causing you to drop off into a peaceful place almost immediately as you start to come down. In combination with its high 26% THC level and snappy terps, these effects make Hot Rod HIGHLY recommended for treating those with chronic pain, depression, insomnia, appetite loss, and chronic stress. Hot Rod has BIG minty green super fat spade-shaped nugs with orange hairs and a thick blanket of chunky bright white crystal trichomes and meaty calyx's.... Superb.
