Nug of the Week: Hawaiian Rain
While Toto was blessing the rains down in Africa, he should have been blessing the rain in Hawaii, because this strain is *deep nostril inhale* one of my favorite strains from Cookies that I've smoked to date. The lineage is London Pound Mintz crossed with Jealousy, and the cross is reflected in both the flavor AND the high. Cracking open the bag gave me hints of lavender, petrol, with a sweet cake flavor on the back end, and the flavor was only amplified after grinding it up. There was definitely a heavy body high associated with the nug, but there was also a pretty floaty, euphoric head high as well, so I didn't find this strain to be too couch lock-y, making it the perfect strain to pair with these events going on around Washington. Make sure you stop by our Capitol Hill or Georgetown locations (Bremerton coming soon, but you can still pick up London Pound Minntz or Jealousy in the meantime) and pick up an 8th of Hawaiian Rain. Just don't forget to bless the rains first.
