We’re in the tail end of summer. Vacation time is coming to a close, fall is approaching, and we’re all getting ready to head back to the grind…if we haven’t already. Ah, well! Nothing lasts forever, which is actually good news if you’ve had just about enough of this triple-digit weather.
But while you’re getting back into the groove of things and preparing to enter a new season, keep this in mind: summer doesn’t officially end until September 23, so you’ve plenty of time to enjoy the spirit of summer and get in some last-minute pool parties and BBQs.
And of course, you’ll want some choice cannabis products to get you through to the end of summer and the beginning of fall. So here are the 7 best Las Vegas cannabis products for September 2019!
1. Sunkissed #6
Terpenes: Myrcene, Ocimene, Terpinolene
“Kiss the Sun” makes for a good song title. It’s poetic….the whole idea of having an impossible longing for something that can never be fulfilled.
But if it was possible to take that type of super-celestial experience and put it into a cannabis strain, the makers of Sunkissed #6 have done it for sure!
First thing worth noting is the earthy, lemony, piney taste. You feel instant effects in the upper body, causing deep relaxation and elevation in the head – kind of like a super-calm rocket ship ride to the moon – or the sun, to be more specific.
But while you’re left feeling calm at the start, there’s a shift in energy and then KA-POW! You feel activated, invigorated and locked in, ready to focus. This strain is idea for treating stress, anxiety, stomach aches, or the pressing need to relax in front of the TV.
2. Island OG #5
Terpenes: Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Limonene
If you were shipwrecked on a deserted island, what strain would you want to smoke?
Are there more important things to have on a deserted island? Ummmmm….maybe. Or maybe you’d rather play that game of which 3 famous people – living or dead – would you want to be stuck on the island with…
But having the right strain could help you alleviate your boredom and stay sane when you’ve sucked the juice out of your 1000th coconut, you feel like the palm trees are watching you, and you’re sick of hearing the sound of Abe Lincoln’s voice.
At that point, friends, it’s time to lay your head down in the sand and light up some Island OG. You’ll need those initial relaxing head effects just so that you can rid yourself of all that stress, worry, and irritability. Next, you’ll enjoy a feeling of expansiveness that spreads its way through your chest and arms, and then works its way down into your stomach, invigorating you but also calming you.
Island OG is the way that we all want to feel all day, every day. A few hits of this, and you’ll be able to bear most of the things that life throws your way and turn your deserted island into an island paradise.
3. Purple Punch
Terpenes: Limonene, Myrcene, Caryophyllene
Purple Punch is one of those rare strains that you really want to take your time with and just smell. Its deliciously sweet grape and berry aroma is worth savoring, if only to enhance your overall experience of the flower. And after that first inhale, you’ll understand why it’s called “Purple Punch” because that’s exactly what it tastes like: grape-flavored punch!
But Purple Punch doesn’t just taste like punch; it also packs one too!. First comes the cerebral effects which wipe all the stress from your mind, and then it floods your body with complete and total sedation. As the taste of grape still lingers on your tastebuds, you’ll quickly feel yourself dissolving into your couch and into yourself. This is the essence of true relaxation. Forget the 10-count. All your anxiety and pain just got knocked out, and you’ve never felt better.
4. Endless Summer #11
Terpenes: Limonene, Caryophyllene, Linalool
Summer is ending on September 23? Says who? Not with this strain, it isn’t.
Endless Summer #11 delivers a sweet, citrusy lavender flavor with the faintest hint of pepper. Once you light up, you might get a bit more of that pepper smell and flavor because of the presence of the terpene caryophyllene. There’s a slight elevation and euphoria in the beginning, primarily felt in the head, leaving you feeling calm and chill. Most of the effects are concentrated in the head, but it’s gentle and not overpowering in the slightest.
Full-body effects start to come around after a while, give you a general, moderate sense of relaxation. Overall, this is a very gentle, calming strain that gives you the taste and feeling of summer all year round!
Terpenes: Myrcene, Terpinolene, Ocimene
Monday blues? Mid-day slump? Wednesday hump? You need something to help you power through your work hours now that you’re back from vacation. You need 3Pac.
3Pac’s relaxing head effects are near-instantaneous; you’ll feel a nice infusion of euphoria right into your dome that chills you out ultra-quick. Soon, those relaxing sensations descend into the body, where the effect settles in and truly dominate.
But make no mistake; this is not a sedative strain- – the likelihood of you settling down for a quick catnap are rare. That calmness is matched with an excellent mix of upliftment and alertness, so you’ll still have enough juice to finish out the day!
6. Canna Hemp Disposable Vape Pen – Focus
Canna Hemp is a noteworthy maker of hemp-based CBD products. We’ve written about one of their CBD tinctures before, and this month we’ll be taking a look at their disposable vape pen.
This sleek and silver pen contains hemp CBD oil combined with their proprietary blend of terpenes call TerpFX. For their Focus blend, they’ve incorporated the terpenes citral, alpha-pinene, and valencene.
The oil in the pen looks orange, and not surprisingly, after that first inhale you’ll pick up a strong grapefruit flavor. A relaxing calm spreads all over you soon after, but this pen is not for the world-weary but the work-ready. It’s called Focus, after all, and you’ll feel a sharpening of your mind as you set yourself to the task before you – minus the anxiety and pain!
7. EGO Brands Dark Chocolate Bar – 500 mg
If you hadn’t noticed, there’s actually a THC-milligram limit on recreational edible products. Chocolate bars, cookies, gummies, drinks, and other such items can only contain up to 100 mg of THC…unless you’re a medical cannabis patient.
There’s good reason for this. Medical patients may be dealing with chronic pain or some other debilitating health issue that requires higher-than-normal doses of cannabis, especially if the person has already developed a high tolerance to THC.
In those cases, EGO Brands Dark Chocolate Bar is a perfect fit. The entire bar contains 500 mg of THC, and bar is sectioned off into smaller square doses that contain around 50 mg each — 5x stronger than a recreational bar!
The result is an extremely potent dark chocolate bar that’s both delicious and useful for treating a number of health conditions. That being said, the same basic guidelines to using edibles applies: start with small doses and work your way up. If you’re already an experienced user, you may already know what level of dose you can tolerate. But if you’re new to this type of edible, try to consume it during a time of day when you don’t have a lot of responsibilities on your plate.
Finally, if you’re not a medical patient or you feel that a 500 mg THC bar is more than you need, no need to worry. The EGO Brands Dark Chocolate Bar also comes in both a 100 mg version and a 1:1 THC-CBD version!
