a great site for buying great weed, do check them out.
costs, shipping, service: Speed Greens deliver great weeds quickly and safely for a reasonable price. free shipping for 149 bucks, sign-up discount, sales, affiliate program, and responsive customer service.
packaging: Speed Greens shines on packaging with plastic storage tubes and boveda packs. bonus are the labels: each plastic tube comes with a color drawing on the label along with the weed name and details. check out photos at bottom. why are the labels so cool? i like to imagine the fun pictures help to frame the high by priming user expectations. they also look great in the cupboard.
overall: SpeedGreens is one of the best MOMs we’ve tried and we keep coming back.
two playful strains:
SOUR PATCH KIDS
https://www.speedgreens.ca/product/sour ... kids-aaaa/
initial: flush to the head, mild raciness in chest, warm glow top half of body, some head pressure but it’s spread out with everything else. lot of head buzz, forehead heaviness around the eyes, chest tingles, thudding. feel blood pulse, but not aggressive. like it says on the Speed Greens site, it comes on all over, settles into relaxation, but keeps an alert side. it’s groovy. talking a lot with friends. just enough indica feel.
appearance: big yummy candy-smelling buds. smooth smoke, fruity flavour, grape soda. smells dank, fruity.
perceptual: bouncy, energetic. sense of relief. tingly in the face kind of like that sour response from the candy, all around the head. tickles, prickly, not a layer. mini pulse-waves or crackles of small sensations around the skull. very nice, bit goofy too. different than Bruce Banner, it’s not as much a focusing agent, more diffuse and playful. but the focus is there, the ability to sit and write, but it’s not a requirement. minor heaviness. mostly in the body. the initial rush settles into a nice body stone with clear vision and wakefulness. not a full-on lock, but nice to stay on the couch. all over fun feeling.
focus: focus is there as needed. enables high-productivity sessions of fun work. wouldn’t want to ask this to make a boring time interesting, it would probably suggest i go for a walk, but for fun enjoyable work which benefits from diffuse-thinking moments, with an easy return to the main focus, this weed provides a positive lift to creative thinking.
mood: a fun internal jumpiness mixed with a tingly body buzz
negatives: there may be a risk of increasing anxiety levels and/or nausea
one week in: will buy again for the focus mixed with playful body buzz
comparison: compared to Bruce Banner this weed is a bit swingy, more inclined toward fantasizing or simply doing nothing but feeling dazed in a dreamy way, yet that same quality can mean getting lost in some high-focus work in a creative way
conclusion: Sour Patch Kids is sweet candy. thank you, weed!
initial: came on strong. hit a bit harsh on the throat, even through a clean bong with fresh cold water. but it’s beautiful right away. a head buzz, like a layer all around the head. kind of like an outwardly expanding layer, like i was hulking out! this weed delivers a heavy comfortable focus. not too racy, more a steady ongoing get-outta-my-way. puts me in myself. steamroller do, do, do. but nice, not edgy. feel it in the head, face. numb all over for a few minutes, like i got novocained all over, then it settled into this steady bulgy focus feeling. i can go save the world! okay, maybe not, but i can definitely go to the gym. exhaling is nice. taste is nice, brown, berry, earthy. really earthy. smells earthy.
visual: deep green, light green tips, rust-colored hairs. lime green mixed with deep green. nice nugs, fine crystals all over
social: i prefer not to go out shopping if i’m stoned, but an hour after toking this i went out and chatted to several folks around the ‘hood. i noticed i was relaxed and easy-going. sometimes i’m overly emotional and chat too much. today i felt at ease around others, went about my day without too much projection, as i’m prone to do; didn’t worry too much about what people were thinking. sometimes i really obsess over that, so when a weed helps me to forget about it, i take notice. i would consider Bruce Banner for going into social situations, though i’d toke an hour or so beforehand. this would work well in fun social situations, but i expect it would work well in difficult situations. i’d also consider toking a bit before a business meeting in small doses. i would expect it to give me a comfortable social focus.
meditation: i was surprised at how well Bruce Banner performed during meditation. it didn’t lead to any deep and dreamy dives, but qigong light and energy meditations got nice and floaty with oxygenation. that said, it was a meditation with a definite tension, very much in the body. some weeds in deep relaxation kick the mind into outer space; Bruce Banner held my mind firmly in the body in relaxed alert way.
creativity: you could do math and science on this; or poetry, lit, philosophy, etc. on par with the best of weeds for that creative thing.
mood: elevated, upbeat, go-get-it, smiley.
comparison: compared to Acapulco Gold (https://www.speedgreens.ca/product/acapulco-gold-aaaa/), another very fine sativa which we’ve tried from Speed Greens, you could say Bruce Banner encloses you and carries you off on a secure ride, whereas the Gold asserts itself, turns you into mad max and sticks you on the front of a war boy vehicle. you got no choice! but the Bruce Banner is a bit more forgiving, gives me more control over my high; not as gripping, despite the nice hulk-out effect. alright, enough with the metaphors. time to shut up and smoke up!
one week in: very familiar with this effect now of the oncoming brain-expanding opening flush followed by the steady hulk-like focus. no feelings of smash, just a blinking intense focus. you are focused. you are here. this is working.
conclusion: i can imagine missing this when it’s gone. must buy again. thank you, weed!
there is a 3.5g of Gorilla Glue in the photo of the package, but since i only smoke it at end of day when i’m already twacked, i’ve been a bit ill-equipped to notice the effects that stand out. the only super clear effect i pick up on is the body buzz. in this case it’s strong and good. i’m glad i have some in the house.
