Boston OG Cannabis Strain Review

Boston OG Cannabis Strain Review

Boston OG, oh how I love thee. Let me count the ways.

These beautiful buds were acquired from the Good Meds Network dispensary located at 8420 W Colfax Ave, Lakewood, Colorado. These particular samples were on the smaller side, but each one was quite dense. The scent profile for Boston OG is simply delightful. These flowers smelled bright, clean, and herbal with a slightly sweet scent of berries.

One small-ish nug provided enough for 4 bong poppers (filling the water pipe with only enough for one green hit at a time). Each puff of the super harsh smoke was worse on my throat than the last, but each left a subtle aftertaste of citrus and black pepper that was quite pleasant, despite all the coughing.

I quickly realized that this strain must be high in alpha-pinene because it is definitely a bronchodilator and expectorant. I did not notice a strong pine smell with these flowers, so this caught me off-guard. The expectorant quality in strains is not very common, in my experience, but I have definitely encountered this in a few other strains that I have sampled. If it was not for the extreme level of harshness of this strain’s smoke, I would definitely suggest it be used to treat the common cold or other non-asthmatic ailments that involve face and chest congestion. Mucinex cannot compete with Boston OG (in my non-medical-professional opinion)My body continued to flush all congestion from my lungs and face, and although that period of time was almost torturous, in the aftermath, I could not remember the last time I had been able to breath so clearly.

Did I mention that I sampled this strain before hitting the jogging trail behind my house for my usual “how does this strain affect my workout” experiment? This process of cleansing was not the most ideal way to begin my workout, and although it made the first fifteen minutes more challenging, it was not bad enough to make me stop. I like to think that it also made my jogging more entertaining for the people I passed on the trail. I can only imagine that it seemed as though I was practicing my dinosaur call.

Once the flushing subsided, I was able to notice the beautiful energizing burst of euphoria that had settled into my brain. I was not able to tell for sure if this strain caused the increased heart rate that I normally associate with such euphoria because I was running. Sometimes, I also experience feelings of anxiety with strains that produce such a strong cerebral effect, but Boston OG did not cause any such feelings for me. It did, however, enhance my sense of humor. I do not believe I’ve ever giggled so much during a workout.

The whole time on the trail, I felt extreme, stress-free mental energy. My mind was going a million miles an hour, covering a thousand different thoughts at once in a very unfocused, space-cadet fashion. I was ready to take on the world! Then, suddenly, at nearly the sixty minute mark, my muscles and eyes became super relaxed. My thoughts became consumed with how much I would love to lie down or at least close my eyes, but there is no way my energized mind would have allowed me to actually sleep. Essentially, my mind was fiercely competing in the Boston Marathon, while my body was on the couch watching Friends. Luckily, I was almost home by this point. The euphoric energy is the only thing that pushed me through to the end of my run.

Once home and breathing regularly, I noticed how uplifted my mood was, and I felt another wave of intense mental energy that inspired a strong desire to clean, which is not a feeling I experience often. That quickly subsided when another tidal wave of muscle and eyelid exhaustion hit. If only there had been a way for me to clean the house and seize the day, as my mind was commanding, without having to move my body. As the Boston OG was leaving me, the mental energy wore off, but the humor and spaciness prevailed throughout the remainder of the day.

In summary, Boston OG provides serene mental energy that combats feelings of anxiety and stress, and induces intense waves of body relaxation that do not necessarily result in actual drowsiness. Therefore, this strain would not be best suited for anyone looking to sleep, but I would deem it acceptable for daytime use. Novice users beware, this strain may be a little intense, so start off with just one hit.

Django Cannabis Strain Review

Django Cannabis Strain Review

Django is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain crossed from Centennial Blueberry and Jack Flash. These particular flowers were acquired from Sacred Seed, 5885 East Evans Avenue, Denver, CO.

As you can see from the strain photo above, these bright green flowers are dense, and covered in trichomes. These buds boast a unique scent profile, too, with the most prominent being spicy like fresh cracked black pepper. I also detected the earthiness of smoked cedar, and with a big inhale this strain provides a slightly sour reaction in the nostril.

To really put Django to the test, I smoked it using a water pipe method that I call bong-poppers before working out. I use the term popper to describe when I load only enough for one hit into the bowl at a time. For all three poppers, the smoke was silky smooth, and left an earthy aftertaste reminiscent of herbal tea.

This was one of those strains that does not hit like a ton of bricks right away. The Django strain demonstrates such a mellow onset that I headed upstairs to begin my workout feeling as though maybe I needed another popper or two to really feel it. Five minutes later, I realized three was enough. Django just is not an intense strain. It did not energize me, but it did not make me feel so relaxed that I did not want to work out either. It did bless me with a mental clarity that encouraged thought and creativity. I was solving the world’s problems in my head through my entire workout.

After fifty minutes of working out, my endorphins were pumping, and I was floating on a such a beautiful cloud of Django confidence and positivity for the future that I was inspired to call my father to officially come out of the cannabis-closet.

Django Unchained
This is a huge deal for me because my father is a conservative police officer in Indiana where marijuana is still very illegal, and I have been avoiding a conversation like this for fifteen years. He knows that I work in the cannabis industry, but was not aware that part of my job involves smoking a plant that is still tagged with a negative stigma where he resides, serves, and protects. If it was not for Django, I would still be hiding in the closet. Thanks, Django!

Django provided a lot of classic sativa benefits without the cerebral fogginess that can sometimes result in difficulty focusing. I did not experience any pain relief with this strain. I had some tension in my neck, and Django did not help with that one bit. It did however, provide the mood-boosting punch that is not so easy to come by. This strain is jam packed with mellow cerebral relaxation that melts away stress and anxiety. Not only did it make my stress disappear like a magic trick, it enhanced my mood and confidence.

In summary, Django provides a mood-boosting punch that inspires confidence, creativity, focus and mental clarity without even the slightest haze of cerebral spaciness. This would be a great introductory strain for beginners. There is no come down with this strain, either, and it definitely did not make me feel drowsy or hungry. Django may not provide much in the way of pain relief, but does eliminate stress and anxiety like a champ, and would therefore provide beautiful relief from all symptoms of PMS, excluding cramps. Django may also provide relief from PTSD and depression. Django is ideal for anytime of day, and if I was grading this strain on a scale of stars, I would rank him at 4.5.
