When I first met Maggie she was a top shelf "Budtender" @ Health For Life White Marsh and then I started seeing her all over the place when she started doing events and "Pop-Ups" for Melting Point Extracts (MPX) at the multitude of dispensaries opening in Maryland.
In that capacity Margaret - Maggie has become part of "The Scene".
I began at Health for Life as a product specialist at their White Marsh location, we opened a year ago and it was a fantastic experience watching the growth in such a short time. More and more products filled the shelves as well as more patients filled the waiting room. I came from a background in senior living sales and food/ beverage customer service. I wanted to join the cannabis industry because I am also a patient and know first hand the benefits of this medicine.
I wanted to take my knowledge and help others find comfort like I did. I loved being a product specialist, it provided me with a great sense of responsibility. I felt like my patients deserved a level of respect, compassion, and my best effort. I met so many friends not only in the industry but you get very close to the patients as well!
I moved into representing the MPX or Melting Point Extracts brand this summer, MPX is the processing brand of Health for Life. I enjoy this work greatly because it lets me serve the entire patient population of Maryland. MPX is represented and available in almost every dispensary in the state. I find pride in standing behind such a high quality and safe product.
I provide Pop-Up brand events where I can answer patient questions and give away free gifts! I also provide educational centered events like dabbing 101 classes where we deep dive into the aspects of vaporizing concentrates.
My personal favorite strain is the Sticky Lemons, a sativa dominant hybrid cultivated by Sunmed Growers and processed by MPX and for my chronic migraine condition I enjoy the MPX Blueberry 1:1 CBD: Delta 8 THC tincture oil. That provides me with the best prevention method for my migraines.
MC - Bong, Vape, Pipe or Joint... Flower or Concentrates?
My favorite new toy is the Puffco Peak, it is just so convenient and has me enjoying all the quality concentrates but I cannot seem to get away from flower for too long, joints can be a therapeutic experience!
There are so many retail dispensaries opening up all over Maryland these days that it's easy to overlook some of the hidden gems out there, we were able to check out one of the nicest spots we have visited thus far @ Storehouse MD... they are "Designed For Well Being" that DNA is built into the physical retail space itself, visit them on Falls Rd in Baltimore and you'll see what we're talking about.
Christopher Burke is the retail manager @ Storehouse and he was able to chat with us for a bit... Get to know Chris and glean some insight into the new retail cannabis dispensary culture that is developing and evolving in Maryland, we were glad to spend some time in the store on the front lines.
Tell us a little about your background, where are you from, how did you come to Maryland?
I was born and raised on the south side of Chicago, attended The Ohio State University and graduated from the engineering program in early 2008, then moved to Denver in early 2012 after returning home to Chicago for a few years. I jumped into the cannabis industry in late 2013 and helped to launch one of the first recreational stores in the country in early 2014, then continued helping the company scale up through 2017.
I began working with a recruiter later in the year to find a new opportunity when I was introduced to the founders of Storehouse and we hit it off immediately, both from a personality standpoint as well as ethics and vision. Although I had opportunities elsewhere, including to stay put in Denver, I was attracted to the opportunity to pioneer a new market where there was still a lot of work to be done de-stigmatizing cannabis and making sure that this industry and this plant are represented correctly.
So far Maryland has been a fun journey that has come with some unique challenges. Overall the state of Maryland rolled out a very high level program that was able to avoid some of the developmental headaches that are typical in a new market, having learned from other mature markets and implemented much of the good ideas while avoiding some of the pitfalls.
At Storehouse, our vision was to produce a patient experience that exceeds expectations while helping advance the discussion on cannabis and de-stigmatizing it. First we focused on creating a beautiful physical space, working with some of the best architects and designers in the city, to create a feel that was authentic to the old industrial history of the area but warm and welcoming at the same time. Next, we staffed with a group of professional, passionate people who felt obligated to get involved with this industry and had a genuine connection to cannabis.
To become a patient in the state of Maryland is simple, and a person seeking medical cannabis as a treatment option can register with the state and get started in a few quick minutes. Once you have determined to seek cannabis as a treatment option, all a person needs to do is jump online and register with the state. Within a few weeks the state will reply, and assuming you have been approved they will assign a 16-digit patient number, which you can then make an appointment at one of the registered doctors.
It is recommended that patients bring any supporting documentation they have for their qualifying condition. Once the doctor approves cannabis as a treatment, the patient will be officially registered with the state and can head to the dispensary. Once at the dispensary, all the patients need is a valid government-issued photo ID and their patient number and the dispensary can look them up and verify all the necessary information.
I am an active person who likes to keep busy in all aspects of mind, body, and spirit. I have been a cannabis user for my entire adult life and psychedelic medicines have played a profoundly important role in my journey so far, which has largely contributed to my deep personal connection to this industry and the cannabis plant.
I am an endurance athlete, having raced Ironman triathlon and many marathons over the years including the Boston and Chicago marathons, as well as a certified personal trainer and Pavel-trained Russian Kettlebell Trainer. Having come from Colorado for the last 6 years, I also enjoy all the usual Coloradan activities like skiing, hiking, camping, etc.
Some of my favorite music would have to be Atmosphere, Blind Melon and 90's hip hop, and if I only got to listen to one album the rest of my life it would have to be Atmosphere's "Seven's Travels".

Cultas Concentrates are wildly popular at the moment @ dispensaries all over Maryland and even @ MC we are big fans, just see the columnists reviews for proof of this. Their gPen and sauces using the whole plant extraction method being particularly fine to this particular connoisseur.
Did you know the head of the extraction lab is a transplant from Colorado and she's also pioneering in her own right here in Maryland being the first woman to head up a major extract lab in the Mid-Atlantic... kudos to Michelle and Culta.
Michelle took a few moments from her busy day to chat over the web with MC, take a few moments of your own and get to know Michelle, she has a big hand in making the concentrates you all love.
I studied Microbiology and Chemistry in college, graduated in 2007. While I was in school and after I graduated I was in the service industry working as a waitress and bartender. I have been in the legal cannabis industry since 2013.
I moved to Colorado in 2012 and became a medical patient, I found that I was able to treat a variety of conditions I had with cannabis and it allowed me to ween off my prescription medications. I was able to track what was helping me because of the potency labels on the products I was buying from the dispensary, eventually the dispensary I shopped at hired me as a budtender. A little while after working in the dispensary the company started construction on their processing lab, I thought this was a prefect chance to transition and apply my background in biological sciences to this industry. My first position in the laboratory was as a lab technician, I learned from some of the best hashmakers in Colorado during this time assisting them in daily activities. Eventually, an extraction position opened up and I too became an extractor running the machines and making the oils.
It's an incredible experience to be working at Culta, I moved to Cambridge from Colorado in April and it's been full steam ahead ever since! It is nice to be in Cambridge, a change from the city, quite and quaint . We're a tight nit group that feels more like a family, working with such talented, passionate individuals is such a pleasure. Leading this lab is a chance of a lifetime and something that I am passionate about. Our laboratory is state of the art and we are pioneering and advocating for cannabis on a daily basis, these are exciting times!
Some of my favorite strains are Chem Dawg, Skunk #1, Jack Herer, I-95, Harley Quinn, Rosaberry, Dosido and Gorilla Glue. My favorite concentrates are difficult to pin down because I like so many but I am drawn to the heavy hitting ones, I like the THCa diamonds for their high potency. Live Resin is another favorite, with high levels of terpenes I get the best of both worlds thanks to the synergistic effects of cannabiniods and terpenes. Indica or indica leaning hybrids along with CBD saps are my daily medicines. I am looking forward to expanding into solvent-less resin in the future!
I love the outdoors and nature, get me outside around trees and I am one happy lady! I practice yoga daily and like to relax with music and a book. I get most of my inspiration from researching or listening to various cannabis podcasts, I inspire to break stereotypes associated with cannabis and to produce quality medicine for the Maryland community. I love this industry because there is always something new to learn, whether it is a new tech, working with a new strain or getting a new piece of equipment.
MC - Thanks so much Michelle, our readers will have a better sense of the unique and talented people behind the great products they are so passionate about, that's our job here.
One big part of the Maryland Cannabis Community are the Doctors and green health organizations that are making it easier for people to get legal and come in from the shadows.
One group in particular is making a name for themselves by providing superior care and easy accessibility and they also helped me to get legal, so without further adieu here is Carolyne Monroe from Green Health Docs;
MC - So how did it all begin for you personally?
My husband left the Marine Corp. in 2016. He had suffered a sciatic injury during his service (Nerve damage) Once diagnosed, like most veterans, he began looking for alternative medicine My Husband had lost friends and family to opiates so he pursued medical cannabis. Someone had posted a picture on facebook and I immediately sent him the link and he went to Green Health Docs that day. At this time Green Health Docs had just been open for a few weeks. My husband went in with his medical documentation and exam fee, and got legal. He was also hired on as the Veteran Outreach Specialist for Green Health Docs that day. I was brought on a year afterwards coming from a holistic health and wellness background and it was right up my alley. The rest is history.
Green Health Doc’s is owned and created by doctors who wanted to combat the opiate epidemic. It’s created a safe haven for patients who have been shunned away for their interest in cannabis. The Clinics are run like any other clinic. You come in you’re greeted by a receptionist, fill out an intake form, wait in the waiting area, and then are taken to the doctors room.
The physician performs an evaluation and looks over your medical documentation to verify that you have a qualifying condition. Once the doctor makes the decision to legalize you we either take you to another office to register you as a patient with the state or if you’ve completed that process the doctor takes the 16 digit MMCC ID number, and from there you’re fully legal to head to the dispensary and begin purchasing product.
I began here as a call center representative and slowly moved up to a supervisor in public relations, customer care, and patient education. I have a background as a certified personal trainer and a medical assistant. I truly didn’t know where my career would lead me with health and wellness, but when I was given this opportunity here. I leaped at the chance. This is beyond a job it’s the beginning of a movement. It is what my generation was put here for.
Our goal as a company is a safe alternative medicine nationwide. To heal with a holistic approach over a chemical approach. To show society that cannabis is no longer a taboo, but a second chance at a beautiful life.
Cannabis is medicine, for decades people have been studying and treating their ailments and diagnoses with this medicine. It is proof that cannabis can not only prevent but maintain overall good health. Cannabis is currently being used as prevention and treatment for diseases such as: cachexia, anorexia, wasting syndrome, severe pain, severe nausea, seizures, severe or persistent muscle spasms, glaucoma, post-traumatic stress disorder, any mental health ailment such as ADHD, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, and any type of neuropathic or chronic pain.
MC - Thanks for that, any particularly moving patient story that you would like to share or highlight?
One of my first calls when I started working here was a 30 year old woman who had been in a car accident 10 years ago. After the accident she was wheelchair bound, placed in a pain management and overly medicated with strong narcotics. She told her her story of going from an average 20 year old to a life of pain pills, therapies, and surgeries. It truly showed me that if 10 years ago she had access to cannabis she would’ve never gone through a life of being over prescribed, in pain, and dealing with non functioning organs at 30. It showed me in that moment that this is what our society needs to truly heal from the inside out.
Chase Lessman (pictured in the middle) is the General Manager @ Culta in Federal Hill it's one of the hottest dispensary's in Maryland, I wanted to bend his ear a bit and we finally got the time to knock this interview out, please thank Chase for taking the time to inform and educate all of us.
I started working in the Cannabis industry back in 2009, right around when the initial dispensary boom in Colorado took place. At the time, I had been working full-time for the Denver Broncos for two years in various capacities, but mainly managing in high-volume, fast-paced environments at both Dove Valley headquarters and at (what was then) Invesco Field/Sports Authority Field.
Coincidentally, I was introduced to the owner of Doctors Orders through a very good friend of mine while we were both visiting a medical shop together, and noticed they were slammed with lines out of the door. I casually asked if they needed any part-time help, and was hired on the spot. Started off working there one day a week, and covered shifts that didn't interfere with my other job, working 6-7 days a week, for almost 2 years.
An opportunity arose where I was eventually offered the opportunity to manage the shop, and at that point, I made a full fledged shift into the cannabis industry in 2011. By 2014, we had expanded to a dual license in order to be able to offer recreational products, which found me operating two very different stores at once in various capacities.
Each store has a completely different type of visitor. A medical patient truly differs from a recreational customer from a purchasing perspective, which in turn results in different strategies needing to be developed to fit to each of them.
I believe that it is truly important to have a solid passion in order to drive your success. When you pursue passion, you can never truly relate to the negative associations with the word "work." In turn, you'll need to have a great team who believe in the same purpose, and naturally a culture is developed that is truly the most important element in succeeding anywhere, but especially in the cannabis sector. Our CEO has done an exceptional job at hand-picking our upper management throughout the entire organization and it reflects in the attitude that our staff carries in their daily operations.
Our main duty at our dispensary is to be able to efficiently and comfortably disseminate any information that may help to understand the different recommendations that we give to our patients.
We feel there is a crucial responsibility attached to operating within the industry, and we are happy to help play our role in altering any stigma attached to it.
I was born in Littleton, Colorado. My mother is an MD from California, and my father is a successful multi-faceted business consultant from Nebraska. I lived in Colorado until I was 11, then moved to Munich, Germany for middle school and high school. I moved to Minnesota when I was 17 for college, and then moved back to Colorado in 2007.
I became a patient in 2008 due to ongoing pain associated with spondylolisthesis (say that 3 times fast!) in my L4-L5 verterbrae from playing sports in high school and college. To be brutally honest, my first experiences with cannabis were not all that great, I actually tried it for the first time when I was 14, and again when I was 16.
Having been in Germany during my middle school and high school years, it was interesting to note that hash was much more abundant (and therefore cheaper) than actual flower, so these first experiences were with spliffs (mixture of tobacco and hash). The combined effects of the nicotine from the tobacco and the intense concentration of THC from the hash was too much for my body to handle, and I became quite paranoid. I swore up and down to myself that when I came out of it, that I wasn't ever going to try it ever again.
Boy was I wrong. By the third time, I had grown out of the panic attacks from blasting my young body with all that THC, but I truthfully didn't even smoke flower for the first time until I was closer to 17. I moved back to the U.S. for college, and that's where a majority of my use began (stop me if you have heard this before lol).
By the time I moved back to Colorado after college, I became interested in researching and understanding the plant further, due luckily to the abundance of knowledgeable resources in Colorado.
MC - Thanks for taking the time out of your day to talk to us!
You can see Chase daily @ the store in Federal Hill
Greetings fellow Connoisseurs, today we are having a conversation with Nick Fafa... the founder and CEO of Happy Stoner Brands here in Maryland. Nick and his brother Mark have been making a name for themselves over the last year with their custom apparel line that is selling in dispensary's now, in particular we have seen their 420 Jersey @ NCW and around town.
Let's find out what motivated Nick and his brother to start the company, how it has evolved... Nick's cannabis connection and some favorite strains and music.
MC - Tell our readers a bit of background on Happy Stoner - how and why did you start the company, what would you say is the Happy Stoner philosophy?
HSBrand LLC started in December 2016 as a way for me to create something that could bring people together. I had an Image of my father being the face of this company because he is my biggest supporter and the sole idea behind the company. he is the Original "Happy Stoner", but it wasn't easy I was working two jobs and coming home and printing t-shirts, i was working two jobs and coming home and doing advertising and marketing myself because I didn't have and loans or credit. I worked my butt off to launch Happystoner.com and make it something that people would love.
It has been a long hard road these past few years we struggled, we lost our home in Maryland because we couldn't keep up with the mortgage anymore so we moved to Florida and are living with my brother. We struggle everyday to pay bills and also print the orders and make sure each customer is ecstatic after they receive their package.
We want to continue to bring a better tomorrow for everyone but Just like you I had trials and tribulations and I'm still here working to make HSBrand LLC a place to bring people together because in the end that's all it is about LOVE and Happiness!
MC - What's your cannabis connection Nick, are you a veteran or newbie with cannabis and now medical cannabis in Maryland?
I started using Cannabis after I broke my back I needed something that would help me with the pain so I started smoking cannabis and ill never loom back. Not only did it help with pain but it also helped with my clinical depression and anxiety. I was diagnosed with clinical depression back in 2012 and was in such a dark time that once i turned to Cannabis it pretty much saved my life helped me see a brighter life, a happier life and yes a Healthier life. Do to my smoking cannabis i was able to get motivation to lose 80 lbs as well as help with my shaking nerves.
CANNABIS SAVED ME!
MC - Give our readers some insight into how the business is going, what you have been up to lately?
We were working with the Infamous Tommy Lyons in North East Maryland and if you don't know Tommy ask around he is THE #1 Advocate for Cannabis in all of MARYLAND! he has been a great ambassador to my company bringing me many people and helping our company grow!
I now work with a company called Liberty Health Sciences and you can see our Jersey's for sale in several locations across Florida! We won a Cannabis Award for Best new Brand and I am in talks with several dispensaries to have them carry Happy Stoner brand products!
Since the move to Florida it has been exciting i have seen many many people wearing my t-shirt, or using my backpack and it puts a great feeling on my face!
We have our new Happy Stoner 420 Jersey you can't find anywhere else come by and check it out 250 already sold!
MC - Lastly Nick, what strains and/or concentrates and MD cannabis brands do it for you... and favorite music track currently?
Ok well fave music currently is Led Zeppelin Whole Lotta Love!
GROW WEST - Tahoe OG x Triangle Kush Tangie
GRASSROOTS - East Coast Sour Diesel Cartridge
They put me where I need to be and then some.
So to inaugurate this new website Humans section your Connoisseur will do the first interview.
In the future I will have short on the spot interviews with the patients who's lives are being made better and how it's being made better by Maryland medical cannabis, I have had some heart wrenching messages from sick people inquiring about themselves, loved ones and even the family pet in end of life situations... the love and caring that comes through in the words give me motivation to be a better Connoisseur and human being in general.
For me my journey started with a simple tick bite somewhere in either western Maryland or West Virginia. Some time later my arm started hurting, at first it felt like I slept on it wrong but it would just not go away, it spreads randomly to other parts of my body, then for weeks i'll feel pretty good then it comes back even stronger. After a series of inconclusive tests my doctor described my condition as "lymey arthritis" and ever since then almost two years ago I have been dealing with daily chronic pain in a way I never imagined even just a few years ago.
So the new world opening up on CBD and terpene research is not only fascinating to me but really helps with my quality of life, thank you Maryland citizens for voting in large numbers to pass this law, then it took years for the politicians to implement and hope started to fade... but by December of last year 2017 I was able to visit my first dispensary (which was Remedy Columbia - thanks guys) and start to get the relief I needed for my abrupt condition.

Hey Hey from Big J!
Willie's Tour Bus came by.... and 'I got on'! Cowboy Willie was behind the wheel this time! (Bob W) This crazy giggly 20% THCa Sativa leaning flower does the trick for Big J! Thanks to @grassroots_md this Highway Man x Northern Haze cross allows for a long lasting funky bus ride...
Once I opened the lid, i got on the bus, and a lite earthy sweet, yet sour smell hit my nose. Check out those crazy hairy buds (Willie's on the bus!), they are totally covered in crystallized trichomes! The strong lime green colors bring happiness to my eyes... wow! As this sticky bud comes out of my grinder, and Oh my gosh earthy, sweet honey, sour smell hits my nose and taste buds hard!
Out of my #Pax3 comes tasty terps and a surge of focused happiness, with wonderful muscle relaxation. The lack of stress stands out, as long lasting euphoria sets in for the long strange trip on Willie's Tour Bus!
The Science - 34% total cannabinoids and a very well developed terpene profile with B Terpinolene 0.67% and B Myrcene 0.78% being the top two
The aroma profile is zesty fresh oranges with a helping of sour coffee gas, which is to simply say pretty complex if that makes sense
Upfront Intense Vibe Followed By Blissful Relaxation - Gets the creative "guices" flowing and provides the mental clarity for long work sessions and talkative chatter, the Guice is kind of special in that it def gets you stoned but the palette is clear and uplifting along with the creative energy provides a nice launch pad for some great conversations with the right crowd, 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...
"Upfront Intense Vibe Perfect To Guice Creative Energy Followed By Blissful Relaxation"
Another FLOWER POWER Strain and Batch from: Curio Wellness
More Maryland Fire Starring - ROCKET FUEL from Culta Cannabis Co - HIGHLY Recommend
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.

There's Nothing like Girl Scout Cookies!
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.
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.

When I touch these sticky buds, I know its trichomes are locked, loaded, and ready to be vaporized! As always, my trusty Pax3 is ready for this fluffy lime green grind. The sweet-citrus floral flavors from the limonene and ocimene dance through the head, while bringing my body into a wonderful hazy relaxation, of pain forgetfulness.
CannaSOS.com calls AAA OG#2 an Amnesia Haze X Black Domina cross, an uplifted hybrid flower that is a great day into early evening smoke.

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...
Tools: pax3,10x loope, and lyrics by the Grateful Dead...
Oh boy! Did you hear what I just heard? Big J smoke of the day ...#deadheadog by Curio Wellness has high-stepped it into town @ 25.5% THCa. This #deadhead is dancin' while looking at the fuzzy crystals on the tips of those buds!
When I grabbed this cool breeze #DeadheadOG flower on Tuesday, I realize the music was just starting. Opening the jar, out came a very fruity, sweet-diesel, sour smell, that said hello! The tight nugs grind into a fluff'tastic, sticky, sweet-dank earthy flavor, with a very clean, piney, refreshing mint finish.
The dark purplish chocolate colors are rich under the 10x loope... I can almost see the flavors while looking close up! Allbud.com calls this SFV OG x ChemDawg hybrid sativa lean flower... I'm excited to see!
The #deadheadlifestyle comes on hard from the first draw off the pax3's vapor. The euphoric heady giggles accompanied with a quite brain, brings me to a WOW... relaxation!
The strong head to toe body high in this Deadhead OG's zippy feeling slows after a few minutes, and a sense of the Sun sinking into Honey comes on lightly, consistently, and timely. The time forgetfulness and creativeness without care sets in for a nice long ride! Just like all deadheads enjoy...
Just a personal note! #deadheadog is one of my top 5 strains to enjoy. Let's hope that the music never stops for us #deadheads and lets hope #deadheadOG keeps growing!
