Nug of the Week and Places to Smoke it: Duct Tape
Duct tape takes two of my favorite strains, GG4 and Dosidos, and crosses them to create a potent and heavy hitting strain with a sweet gassy nose to boot. This strain can be a little couch lock-y (I mean look at the strain name - it might have you stuck.) That being said, for my veterans with high tolerances chasing that "first time smoking" feeling, Duct Tape might be your solution. So head to any of our shops (Cap Hill, Georgetown, or Bremerton), pick up that Duct Tape by Viking Cannabis, and then check out some of these events going on around Washington. Just in case you're prone to being couch locked, two of them are actually movie festivals, so I'd check those out first!
