This month The Drop, Dante Jordan's column rounding up all the can't-miss strains from the best brands and growers, looks at anticipated releases from Caliva, LOWD Farms, Connected Cannabis, and more.
Good afternoon, my friends, and welcome to The Drop, a monthly column where we cover which new strains are hitting the dispensary streets in any given month, and why I think you should know about them.
To keep an eye on when your favorite brands drop new products, simply “favorite” strains and brands on Weedmaps and you'll get notifications when they're dropping in your area. All you need to do is make a profile here to get started.
Let's get right to it.
LOWD: Wedding Mints
Listen, if you're out in Portland, you definitely need to be smoking LOWD. Pun intended, alladat. I spent the winter months out in Portland (beautiful city, will go back at some point) and LOWD's Cake Mints definitely made the grey rainy days a lot easier to handle. Its Wedding Mints is probably more of the same, so buy the limited drop while you can.
Wedding Mints is a cross between Wedding Cake and SinMint Cookies with purple buds and hard-hitting effects. Jesce Horton, the brand's CEO, told me it's part of the brand's Catch-and-Release series where they run excellent strains that people will love, but they just don't make the cut for long-term production.
On the flavor and how it hits, Jesce told me, “It's a similar profile to a doughy, cakey, but more on the cookie, and gassy side than their Cake Mints.” That right there is weed connoisseur for “Fam … Fire.”
Magic Hour Cannabis: Sherbadough
Magic Hour Cannabis: producers of what's still some of the best Gelato I've ever tasted in my life. Its T-1000 is fire too, and more evidence for consumers that THC isn't the decider of quality. Really, everything they put out is fire, so I'm comfortable telling you to run out and grab the limited release of its newest strain: Sherbadough.
