Herbs The Word

“The people who enjoy pot and make the cannabis culture so diverse come from all walks of life and bring many things to the table.” 

There are all kinds of people on pot these days. Thanks to legalization efforts, the herb is revealing inspirational people to the world. People from all over are united together by the power of pot.

When it comes to top-of-the-line flowers that have the power, some of the best that I have found were locally grown right here in Colorado.

Grown with love by individuals who have lived in the state their entire life, these folks know how to get it just right. I have tried a lot of different dispensaries here in Colorado and have found that most of the herb to be good with only a few that burn black. This article is not about the big names. It’s about the up and coming ones.

Dispensaries offer great flowers and concentrates, but, the flowers and concentrates that are homemade and homegrown by the local duo known as Pueblo Joe and Josh stand out among the rest. Their Colorado homegrown is dabsolutely fire! When their herb is broken up, it has a very nice ‘crawl’ to it. The term describes the way herb behaves after it’s broken up. Whether you break it up by hand or dump it out of your grinder, it’s how it moves.

Does it blob out on the tray and turn into a cloud of dust or just lie there looking blah? Does it land in a pile and start to look like it’s breathing as it settles? These are characteristics you look for when determining if your herb has a good cannabis crawl. When your ganja has a good crawl to it, it’s almost as if it is dancing before your eyes.

Then there are those who remain anonymous and still live in prohibition states. Antman, Paper Chase, The Wizard, Momma, and others who work quietly behind the scenes to bring an end to cannabis prohibition.

It only takes a single seed to tip the scale. Be the seed… support a cleaner, greener, healthier planet for the future.
