A SAGE Trainwreck

Some strains of cannabis are combinations of Sativa and Indica, Wreckage is just such a one. She came by it naturally, since she descended from the pairing of S.A.G.E. and Trainwreck. These two parent strains both bring that superior high that soars, but with crystal clarity. Since the parents grow up into plants that look so different, with the S.A.G.E. branching quickly from the bottom and the Trainwreck popping up tall and skinny, with flowers sprinkled up the way, buds of Sativa blooms in a row, it’s no wonder their offspring is named Wreckage. The split is about 90% Sativa and 10% Indica. It grows as a complete overlay of the two, with crazy branching layered with thick Afgani plumage all over the place. Many marijuana patients go for the resulting lovely scented sticky treatments Wreckage provides.

Great Medication

Some have called Wreckage treats “mouth numbing” with their splashes of menthol and lemon that has been smoothed to soft sandalwood, spiced to loose a rush of clean frosty thought-provoking highs, banishing pain and making you want to explain… everything. Or, maybe explain like a stand-up comic does, because everything gets so funny and fun. It is a very active, energetic high, and reported to be highly effective at combating chronic pain and some types of fatigue.

Finding The Wreckage

The Wreckage is new enough that it may be a little bit hard to locate, as some medical marijuana dispensaries are yet to discover it. When the chance comes, try a little bit and see how this new medication works for you. Many patients are responding well to it. Some patients have reported taking just a tiny nugget and experiencing complete freedom from pain, while developing a warm glow slowly pulsing throughout. In the Pacific Northwest, this strain is also known as “The Don”. Many patients report it as the strongest, most effective treatment they have tried, and yet it is an easy feeling, non-debilitating happy they report, not zonked out on the couch all day, or anything like that. If your local dispensary doesn’t carry Wreckage, ask them to find a source, so they can begin offering this special cannabis strain.

This powerful strain is of the indica variety, and on the heavier side of the scale.

Native Roots is the creator of the custom strain that is called Griz Kush. In correlation with Root Cellar Genetics, they have created a hybrid that is getting rave reviews. Not only is it able to relax the user, but it also has amazing potential to increase appetite and stimulate creativity.

Griz Kush is A Blend of Two Amazing Strains

The hybrid has genetic components of Tangerine Haze and also Pakistani Chitral Kush. Named after the famous musician, GRiZ, he selected these two based on their intense flavors and the effects that it gave him. Users will notice that this blend has both an earthy and yet a citrus blend at the same time. This allows it to have energy giving aspects, but also allows relaxation too. The flavor is great for those who would rather mix their pot rather than smoke it. Since it has a citrus blend, this would be a great addition to many recipes.

Unique Smell and Taste

The plant itself is quite unique. It has purple coloring and has a tangerine smell to it. The flavors are a mixed combination of pine and oranges all rolled into one. There are some Kush undertones that cannot be ignored. Those who currently use this strain have said that they are prone to periods of euphoria that include laughter.

A hybrid developed from crossing two of the most pleasing strains of medical marijuana, Haze and Blueberry, Blueberry X Haze provides a pleasant high and a sweet tasting smoke. Blueberry X Haze has built its own reputation by producing a comforting feeling, easing pain without producing an overly groggy effect. That is unless you overdo it, so be sure to pace yourself, or you will be headed off to dreamland.

While many hybrid growers have probably made at least an attempt to cross Blueberry and Haze, DJ Short is credited with being the original creator of Blueberry X Haze strain. Blueberry X Haze offers most of the positive effects of both its parents without most of the negative psychedelic effects of the straight Haze strain.

Appearance 
Blueberry X Haze has dark green buds with light-green highlights. Dark orange fibers extend outward from the buds with a light sprinkling of whitish crystalized HTC.

Tastes 
The taste of Blueberry Haze X is very soft on the pallet with a slight lemon-rind flavor with subtle earthy undertones. The lemony flavor remains on the pallet for some time, producing a very long finish.

Smell
The Blueberry Haze strain produces a light, pleasing and intensely inviting floral aroma that many users report as being reminiscent of Blue Dream. Of course that shouldn’t come as a surprise as Blue Dream, a cross of Blueberry and Super Silver, has genetics very similar to Blueberry Haze. When whole, Blueberry Haze X smells similar to a freshly-mowed lawn, but after it is broken down it produces a light lemony aroma with just a hint of vanilla.

Effects
The effects most commonly reported from smoking Blueberry Haze X begin with a relaxing state and nearly instantaneous improvement in mood, but with a sativa-like effect and upbeat, perky feeling. After a few puffs a very slight, but calm, overall buzz will rapidly spread throughout your entire body. This makes Blueberry Haze ideal for delivering relief from chronic stress and minor pain, especially after a long day at work. When used in moderation, Blueberry Haze can also be used before work as it typically doesn’t produce the sleepiness or heavy highs associated with some strains of medical marijuana. Blueberry Haze is also an ideal choice when dealing with depression or bipolar disorder, as it soothes without taking away your ability to function.

Specifications:
Strain Name: Blueberry X Haze
Type: Hybrid
Grade: B-
Effectiveness: Lasts 1 1/2 to 2 hours

Strain Highlights

Medical marijuana in the United States has come a long way in the last several years, with new strains popping up all over the place, but lemon skunk has been a consistent strain that has been enjoyed for many years. This strain has lemon in its name from the fact that it possesses a citrus like zesty taste that packs a very smooth flavor. Lemon skunk is a cross between two types of skunk and although this strain is typically classified as a sativa dominated hybrid, many phenotypes of this strain have come out recently that are much heavier on the sativa side.
It originally is reported that lemon skunk is about a 60/40, meaning that it is sixty percent sativa and forty percent indica, but a great deal of people feel that it is closer to 80/20 or even higher. Regardless, the high from this strain is classic to that of most sativa dominant strains, in the fact that it is a head high, rather than a body high and delivers an uplifting mood with a bit of a stimulant boost, much like a cup of coffee. Lemon skunk has been proven to be very effective when it comes to managing stress, as well as depression and is grown specifically for this reason. Due to the fact that lemon skunk is a sativa dominant strain that provides a bit of a kick with an uplifted mood, it is not advisable to use this particular strain for alleviating insomnia.
Growing Lemon Skunk
This particular strain stretches very tall when growing, so it’s important to take this into consideration if you are growing this strain indoors. Putting the plants into the flowering stage earlier than you typically would with other strains is advisable, due to the fact that lemon haze plants will always stretch towards the lights much more rapidly than other strains would. Although many sativa strains are known to produce very high yields, lemon skunk has shown to produce moderate amounts, which is significantly less than a typical sativa that stretches and grows very large. Although lemon skunk has a pungent smell of lemon when it is in a container, the hit is said to be more of a skunk taste, which is typical with highly dominant sativa strains.
Overall, lemon skunk has been positively reviewed by thousands of people and the general consensus is that it is a highly energetic, head high and very enjoyable.

However, various trial runs have evaluated the vapor of this strain as actually having a sweet smelling bouquet similar to candy. It is considered by many, who value the final reward, to be worth the first whiff of pungent essence of skunk.

When Traditional Medicine Fails

Sometimes medical procedures like chemotherapy produce lingering nausea and vomiting episodes. This is one of the times when prescription medicines may not relieve the distress. Medical cannabis may be your alternative to bring relief. This may be your miracle herb as it also helps with other debilities:

  • chronic pain
  • migranes
  • insomnia
  • anxiety
  • cancer

However, in some instances, writing a recommendation for it is no problem. Once you have the legal paper you can buy it from a proper supplier.

THC and CBD

THC is a psychoactive ingredient in pot, and CBD is non-psychoactive. CBD is a substance that can’t be used to get high. This unique quality has a heightened interest in the field of medicine. In the future, some of the ingredients in marijuana may open a window to treat children with epilepsy. Because CBD has the potential to control the mind-altering activity of THC, it may be considered for treating schizophrenia and relieving anxiety.

Grow Your Own Supply

In some states, you may even grow your own weed garden to treat your maladies. Taking up to 9 weeks to flower, it is easily recognized by the long thin foliage. Your own back-yard pharmacy may be your way to a more painless and calming future.
