Great Selection of ALL types of highs + pens
So I did some research on vap pens for the last week or so. Eureka is what i went for reason being is that the cartridges are pre-filled and EASY to screw on, and it's SIMPLE to use. AWESOME PRICE. The staff was very helpful and kind. Being that I was a first time patient the paperwork took less than a minute. There was a full staff there to help everyone as they came and went. Such ease. The staff member who helped me went through all the buds, different types of highs, and DEALS they had to offer. All and all, I got my vap pen, sativa co2 and sativa bud top shelf which was a 5GRAM 8th ftp gets nice goodie bags. Oh, try their edibles too.
Eureka Pen is PRACTICALLY AMAZING!
Super Lemon Haze is bomb!
This is my third visit at this place and the last time I tried their Super Lemon Haze. I get anxiety attack and sometime nervous easily so I was looking for a good sativa that will make be happy and easily social. Super Lemon Haze is the one for me. I noticed this time they put up graphic tell me that Lemon Haze won 1st for two years in a roll! I didn't know that. So it's nice to know that I have a champion strain in my collection.
I love the smell of Lemon Haze. It's refreshing, IMO. After smoke I feel energetic. So no more red bull for me. Red Bulls give me this jiggering feeling. Lemon Haze has a smooth come up and and relaxing body feel with energy. For me the feeling lasted for four hours.
Love Super Lemon Haze! Makes my day great! Please don't ever run out. Keep in in stock always! Thank you!
Dat Weed Doe
Good quality, good staff.
This shop is always on point. 2 top shelf grams for 20. Bleeeeee
What happened to the $20 grams of wax. I would be here all the time if they were back.
This is the shit right here...
A little back-story about this hybrid of Sour Diesel and Soma's NYC Diesel (not to be confused with East Coast Sour Diesel): Soma totally ripped the name NYC Diesel. His hybrid doesn't contain any actual verified Diesel genetics, but is instead a cross of some bag seed that came from NY which may or may not have contained Diesel genetics with an Afghani/Hawaiian male. I think it's pretty fucking weak to use the name NYC Diesel, which is why I've never actually tried Soma's Diesel whenever I've come across it. I think it shows a big-time lack of integrity on his part, particularly since his hybrid doesn't even have any sort of "Diesel" characteristics, specifically that lemony-gas funk that pretty much every Diesel line displays. He fully named it NYC Diesel just because of the popularity of actual real Diesel lines. Having said that, the Double Diesel that CCA has on deck right now is the booooommmmb.... I really, really love it.
Looks: Fucking awesome. Bright lime green with a little bit of darker green here and there and a decent amount of rusty/orange-ish hairs. The bigger buds are exploding off of the stem, fox-tailing, which is an attribute I really dig. To be honest, the nugs look a lot like Sour Diesel, which is a good thing in my opinion. I went out in the backyard earlier today to roll a j and the nuts were just SPARKLING in the sunlight. Really, really pretty weed. A spot-on cure, too, kind of spongy and crumbly, but in a good way. These definitely aren't overly dried or anything. Not as sticky as I'd have liked, but there was for sure a decent amount of resin on my fingertips after breaking these nugs up.
Smells: Per usual, I googled this strain before I went to CCA and I found the reviews that I came across (especially kindreviews.com's) to be fairly accurate. It definitely has a "musty grapefruit" thing going on. I really think the predominant smell is dusty grapefruit for sure haha. After breaking it up, it has more of an essence of grapefruit, cleaner and clearer, without the mustiness. So I guess smell-wise, this hybrid leans more toward Soma's NYC Diesel rather than Sour Diesel. Either way, it smells pretty good. Not mouth-watering like Sour D, but still good. The "musty" aspect of the smell is a little weird I think, but not a turn-off or anything. Just something a little different than I'm used to. Different's good.
Taste: As opposed to the reviews I read online, I think this batch of Double Diesel tastes really, really good. The Sour Diesel "fuel-y funk" really comes through in the taste. There's also a lot of grapefruit going on, with a hint of the mustiness that's present in the smell, but not too much. I think it tastes really good, and it also lingers a bit, just like my beloved Sour Diesel haha. I also have to say that this weed burns unbelievably clean. It's obviously flushed extremely well, if it wasn't grown organically. The ash on my joints is almost white. Almost. It also has maybe the smoothest smoke I've ever experienced. Seriously, no expansion, you can take pretty much as big of a hit as you want and it won't make you cough. I mean, I don't know what a bong-load would do to you, because I pretty much only smoke joints and haven't tried a bong-rip of this one, but the smoke from a joint is smooth as smooth can be. Really nice.
High: Pretty amazing. If you like Sativas, like I do, then this is the one for you. It definitely starts out a little racy, but not edgy like some hard-core Sativas. The overall high is extremely positive and happy, with a lot of energy and a strong desire to DO something. Even the initial raciness isn't the kind that makes you have a panic attack or anything, which has actually happened to me when I've smoked other really good Sativas (and this one definitely qualifies as a really good Sativa). After about thirty minutes, you just get in a really good, smile-y mood, no edginess or paranoia at all and, like I said, you wanna do something. I woke up yesterday morning and started playing Madden, got super-pissed off because the computer was cheating (you know how Madden do...), decided to try out the Double Diesel and after smoking it, said,"Fuck video games," turned that shit off and went out back and played fetch with my boxers for an hour or two. Smoked a little more, went and had lunch and a couple drinks with a friend, got back home around eight, smoked some more and listened to music all night, had a really good time all day. I typically have about eight or ten different strains working at home at any given time and tend to mix up what I smoke throughout the course of a day, mostly so my tolerance will stay fairly low, but also because I like variety. I really have to say, though, that I've been smoking this Double Diesel for two days straight, with the exception of my bed-time Perfect OG joint (yeah, I still have some of that around to help me fall asleep haha). I mean, I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise, considering how much I love Sour Diesel, but this strain is definitely different than straight-up Sour D. Props to Soma, even if he did do something dickhead-ish like name his hybrid NYC Diesel despite the fact that it my or may not contain Diesel genetics. His strain is definitely bringing something to this cross, big-time. It's not reeeeeaallllyyyyy stony like Sour Diesel. The best word I can think of to describe Double Diesel's high is "clean." You're good and baked for a while, then you're just.... not. No burnout, no needing a nap after two or three hours, no nothing. The only feeling you're left with is "I want more Double Diesel" hahahahahaha!!!!! The other thing I noticed about this strain is that I had no munchies at all. It's almost an appetite suppressant, which ordinarily I wouldn't like (I dig Sativas that make me hungry, as opposed to Indicas which make me hungry AND tired), but every other aspect of this strain is so good that it doesn't even matter. I really, really love this strain.
Overall: 10. Period. The end. This strain is so good it makes me want to start growing, just so I can have a massive supply of it around at all times. For real. I got five grams of it two days ago and I wish that I'd have gotten at least twice that, despite the fact that I have way too many jars working right now haha! It's the bomb, no doubt about it.
I also just wanna say that if you've never been to CCA, y'all need to get up there right now. I've been going for like six years or so and it's really the only dispensary I go to. And there's a reason for that. I'm continually impressed by the meds they have, even after all this time haha and especially lately. The Purple Alien OG, the Charlie Sheen Part Poo, the Thai-Tanic, the White Fire OG (OMG I love that one haha) and now this motherfcuking Double Diesel? It just keeps getting better and better.
White Fire OG
This is a cross of Fire OG (one of my favorite OG's) and The White, which is a strain that I've never actually tried but read plenty about. This particular batch of White Fire OG is really fucking good with one drawback...
Looks: Like some seriously epic weed. So covered in crystals that it looks almost grey. Lots of dark green with dark orange hairs here and there. Some of the hairs are bordering on purplish/grey, in a really good way. The buds themselves are more spear-shaped or "spike-y" if that makes any sense. Kinda serrated. Definitely not the typical OG golfball-type nugs. These buds are pretty dense, too, but break up really easily.
Smell: I was surprised when I first got this home, because it has a serious fruit component to the way it smells, with a lot of wood notes, as well. It smells more like a haze-dominant hybrid, specifically Blue Dream. In fact, it smelled exactly like Blue Dream until I got it in a jar. It smells really good, but again, not like a typical OG. However, after I broke some up to roll a j, there was way more pine going on, although not a lot of the lemon Pledge or fuel notes that typically comprise OG's and their hybrids. Still, no complaints. It smells great. Pretty stinky, too
Taste: This is where I'm gonna get a little critical. These nugs were obviously grown hydroponically and I don't think they were flushed well (organically grown or at least really, really well-flushed hydroponically grown buds are super-important to me). Because of this, the flavor suffers. A little pine, a lot of wood, like a smoky cedar-type thing
(wood notes are not my favorite when it comes to weed), but it burns kind of "hot." I'd love to smoke some of this that was grown organically or even a hydroponically grown version that had a serious flush because I bet it'd be delicious. And the fact that this White Fire wasn't flushed well is not at all indicative of the majority of the strains that CCA offers. Just about everything else I've gotten here in the last five years plus has burned really, really clean.
High: This is where my complaining ends. I fucking LOOOOOOOOVE this strain. One of the best highs I've experienced in a while. Unbelievably stress-relieving and pleasant, incredibly relaxing but not lazy at all. Relaxingly euphoric. Serious attitude adjuster. Absolutely no paranoia at all. All's right with the world. In fact, this is a strain that I think would be awesome for waking and baking, as it just puts you in such a good fucking mood. Tension just melts away. All smiles and good moods here, not super-spacey or anything. Just an overall amazing buzz. I also got some pretty decent munchies on this one, which, if you've ever read some of my other strain reviews, is a quality that I really enjoy. I love getting the munchies haha. Zero burnout, too. The euphoria just kind of slowly faded off, but only after two or three hours.
Overall: On a scale of one to ten, I have to give it a 7.5 or an 8, but that's strictly because of the fact that this herb isn't flushed well enough. And that's also on the "CCA Scale of One to Ten" because everything they have here is usually nearly perfect. The White Fire OG is still better than ninety percent of the herb offered at every other dispensary in LA. If this one was grown organically or flushed well, I'd happily give it a big-ass ten. And I'd be going back to CCA right now and stocking up on it. As it is, I may go back and get some more anyway, just because the high is so fucking good. Honestly, everything about it is pretty amazing and if I were a grower, I'd be trying my hardest to find a legitimate cut of this one, because it's definitely a special strain, right up there with Sour Diesel in my book (Sour Diesel's my favorite strain ever). I'm gonna seal the rest of my eighth up in a jar for a month or two (that'll usually mellow out a poorly-flushed crop) and revisit it later. Totally looking forward to cracking that jar in May haha!
Try out GOD's GIFT. It my favorite of there. Its a good tasty heavy indica.
im so lazy to go clinic again
Your Super Lemon Haze is the bomb!
My girls and I wanted something fun and relaxing after a week of hard work. We are pretty picky so I took the time to smell each of their options. I was torn between the Silver Haze and Lemon Haze. But I decided to go with the Lemon Haze because it smells more fresh and have more white fuzzy hair to it. I'm glad I did! My friends and enjoyed it. After a few hits we all were giggling and laughing at stupid stuff. I work as a bartender in Hollywood and all the crap I have to put up really stresses me out. Super Lemon Haze takes all my stress away. No couch lock experience more of euphoric, giggly, and smiling type high. Please, please don't ever run out of Super Lemon Haze! Oh and the girls there are very professional and helpful. Thank you for providing quality buds.
Will return for more Super Lemon Haze!
FTP - Great service. They hooked it up.
Made a trip to CCA after reading the words of randynash.
Picked up the Perfect OG.
Good but not Perfect.
The herb is clean, nicely flushed, and cured with no nutrient taste but not as heavy as my favorite OG's.
What I did enjoy is the clarity of high and clean smoke of the Perfect OG.
From my visit to CCA I can say they are selective of the medicines they stock and run a first class establishment.
