Nug of the Week: Old School Lemons
Our nug of the week goes out to all the old head smokers out there - the ones who are looking for those strains that they remember smoking before legal weed was even a consideration. That's the feeling I get when I smoke Old School Lemons - nostalgia. One of my coworkers who tried out the strain even saw "This reminds me of that illegal Cali weed I used to buy." This sativa-hybrid hits all the right marks for me:
The cure is perfect, so the citrusy nose on the nugs fills the air as soon as you crack the smell seal.
The high is I get is a happy, energetic, and alert high that sativa are known for, but without the overactive, buzzy, paranoia that usually pushes me towards indica strains in my day to day smoking routine.
The price to quality ratio is astounding - for $35, I can get an eighth of top shelf quality flower without the top shelf markup.
And that's the thing that sticks out to me the most about this strain - I don't get my usual sativa headaches a couple hours after smoking. I can be social and energetic all the way through the high and not have to pop two Tylenol at the end of the day. In honor of this unicorn of a sativa strain, here is a list of activities happening around Washington that would pair perfectly with some Old School Lemons. Make sure you stop by one of our three locations (Cap Hill, Georgetown, Bremerton) to pick this strain up, and then head over to one of these events to have a good time!
