Review: I had not dropped back by Project Releaf since it became a 24-hour dispensary — it’s where I tasted my first Boys from Oklahoma strain — but had seen the dispensary’s Weedmaps score and number of reviews increasing consistently. I picked up a number of strains it carries from Sweet Weed. My favorite was its run of Sour Diesel, a classic sativa-dominant hybrid. (For what it’s worth, its Pineapple was a strong second-place finisher.) Sour Diesel is a classic thought to have derived from a cross between Chemdog 91 and Super Skunk. Owner David Liebensohn said the grower uses a different curing process that results in buds that were dense, but fluffy and dry all the way through but not dried out. The taste was excellent, with no harsh throat hit from the beginning through the end of the bowl and a strong buzz that remained mellow through the duration of the high with no sativa jitters. This is the perfect strain for tasks that are tedious but do not require intense attention like running errands or housework.
Cannabis effects vary wildly from patient to patient based on a multitude of factors, including THC tolerance, brain chemistry and personal taste. This review is based on the subjective experience of one patient.
