The Jason Grass Experience

My name is Jason Grass (a.k.a. Big J!) After suffering for years from pain, due to back/neck injuries/surgery, I found medical cannabis more effective than doctor's pills! So, I quit my career of 26 years and started as a budtender @ Curio Wellness early 2018. 

I thoroughly enjoy helping/teaching others on the how too's of treating themselves with medical cannabis. I teach a lot different ways to use cannabis; however, I encourage others, like myself, to use their cannabis with dry herb vapes (Pax2, Pax3, Volcano). 

Also, teaching others the art of infusing whole plant cannabis into coconut oil is a true passion of mine. I teach classes on how to... Connect with Big J to see the times!

Cannabis is teaching me to enjoy my family and life again! 


Darkstar x CT - Curio Wellness

"The pain relief rockets my eye's down stream to a fun fuzzy night..."

Hey hey from Big J Smoke Of The Day! 

The never ending supply of new Medial Cannabis strains to Maryland has lead me down a beautiful hole called DarkStar x (Chem Dawg x Tangie) (DSxCT) grown by @curio_wellness. For me this hybrid indica leaning strain smokes just as deep as it's historical names. 

  • Grower: Curio Wellness
  • Strain: DSxCT
  • THCa: 35.4%
  • Tools: 10x Loope, pax3, and the brain

DSxCT comes out of the jar crashing my grinder with glue like stickyness. The ground bud smell's of a very deep earthy pungent, sweet-spicey, citrus stank, that waters both my eyes with joy! The flower fades from a rich emerald green colored base, into a tight, heavy dark purplish chocolate tipped bud. The brain and Pax3 are ready to send me down the DSxCT ride. 

As DSxCT goes pouring into the pax3, out lifts a searchlight of vapor that crashes into and over my body with a wave of holy hello europhia! The hashy feel comes on strong from the ice covered petals that are dancing with sticky clouds of trycone matter.  Check out the close up pic! 

The pain relief rockets my eye's down stream to a fun fuzzy night of good-byeness. The brain slows, and the remarkable relaxing giggles with stressless creativity and forgetfulness hits. Bam! The Darkstar is very bright with this bud

This DSxCT batch grown by @curio-wellness brings me to the true meaning of mind/body relaxation without care! Watch out for the 35.4%THCa... time will slow, the time fades, but DSxCT waits out time.

Hey hey from Big J smoke of the day!  Excitement comes on heavy and hard today! 

This MD medical cannabis kid has uncovered an offspring flower of 'The White'! For me, 'The White' is a top 5 must smoke Maryland Medical Cannabis strain. and tells me that, The White has been crossed with Lucifer OG (oh boy!) to bring me a danky tight tipped large structured bud called #GhostRider grown by @Grassroots_MD! 

  • Strain #GhostRider

The sticky head-light nugs, blindly dazzle my eyes' with it's deep amber hairs bleeding into a vivid yellowish lime green hue that draws me deep inside the flower. As this #GhostRider dances out of the jar and into the grinder, a strong ziesty, sour skunky, limonene smell waters my palate, and crosses the eyes. The fire, papers, brain, and pax3 are ready to go!

Heavy vapor comes out of the pax3 with a lemon earthy kush flavor that fills the entire body with delightful europhia. 'The White' leads this #GhostRider into a full on head-to-toe body buzz! As the medicine goes to work, it allows my mind to wonder into a thoughtfully creative playground that lacks my stress, muscle pain, and uplifts my all-the-time sluggish brain!  

With this stanky batch of #GhostRider displaying 25.2%THCa and 2.9%THCv cabonoids.  I'm not at all supprised that it takes me into a total introspective philosophical conversation with myself and those around at the same time. ;-)

Durban Poison - Grassroots Cannabis

"The spicy, yet sweet tasting vapor, seeps into body with major stress/pain relief..."

Hey hey from Big J smoke of the day! 

Holy Red Bud! Is there a fire on that !?

In flower, of course, I picked up from Curio Wellness one of the parents of my beloved #GSC, #durbanpoinson! 

This illusive and highly sought after sweet piney sativa strain, earns its named while easing my brain. Look at the pics of these fluffy x-mas tree style buds by @grassroots_md trimmers! The strong orange'ish red colors are dispersed throughout the nug from bottom to top. All of those amber hairs in the bud, are just are asking to be vaped... the pax2, pax3, and me can't wait!

  • Strain: Durban Poison
  • Grower: Grassroots Cannabis
  • THCa: 16.4%
  • Tools: pax2-3, Big J's trusty 10x loope, and my eyes!

Under the 10x loope, these mushroom capped tricome's are eye popping with vivid colors. The terpinolene, myrcene, and pinene distroy the nose with pungent flavors on the palate. Oh yes, very sticky to the touch... I'm excited to vape a landrace strain with a wacky history from Southern Africa. 

As the pax3 heats this particular batch of Durban Poison, it begins to smooth out my funky, but always fuzy, and confused mind. The spicy, yet sweet tasting vapor, seeps into body with major stress/pain relief that is filled with a fun body buzzzzing quietness. and both agree that this strain is 100% sativa. I couldn't agree more! 

Happily, this light 16.4%, sativa brought my mind's silly fast moving thoughts, to an almost halt... yet filled me with great focus and a get'er done attitude!

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! 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!

Hey hey from Big J smoke of the day! 

Fall brings weird weather, less day light, and it's cannabis harvest time! Wow! Nothing like fresh new strains to pick from, for what ails me... I'm always up for a banana-split any time of the day! This energetic, uplifting, sweet 'creaper' strain has the THCv and terpenes I enjoy.

My pax3/volcano both pull all the flavor out of this "creaper's" vapor, then lifts my eyes into a very creative uplifting high! I'm digging on the spacey alertness with giggles! ...there's nothing like a fall banana-split creaper!
