An Everyday Strain For An Everyday Kind Of High
It won't blow your mind, but it's not everyday we want our minds blown.
As someone who has been an active cannabis user for the past few years, I’ve smoked my fair share of flower. Since moving out to Los Angeles a year ago, I’ve tried just about everything there is to try across the quality spectrum. Even though there are a ton of options out there for consuming cannabis, my personal favorite is also the most classic: smoking flower straight out of a bowl.
“To be clear, I use cannabis as a medicine.”
That said, my tolerance has grown since my cannabis journey began, which means it’s somewhat challenging to find a flower that perfectly suits me. To be clear, I use cannabis as a medicine. It has replaced my antidepressants and I couldn’t be happier about it. I mention this because everyone has different needs when it comes to finding the right cannabis product for them, and for me, I absolutely need something soothing, relaxing, and anxiety-busting.
I did not know what to expect when I first tried Supplied by 1964’s Blue Dream flower. To begin with, all I initially knew was that it was the strain Blue Dream, but having experience with cannabis taught me that no two samples of Blue Dream are ever exactly alike. The particular flower I sampled looked fresh and ready to be consumed. It didn’t have much of a scent, however. In fact, it lacked any distinguishable aroma. I decided to smoke the flower using my favorite Jane West steamroller, which is essentially a small pipe. With high hopes and low expectations, I lit up and took my first hit. And I felt nothing. I did cough up a storm though, which tells me this flower isn’t quite as smooth as it should be. On the bright side, I was left with little to no aftertaste. I kept smoking and about four hits later, I was surprised to find it did relieve the anxiety I was feeling moments before.
