Las Vegas Cannabis Strains You Need to Try This Month <br/> (May 2018)

All cannabinoid percentages/terpene servings are estimates that may vary from batch to batch.

1. Desert Grown Cookies (Desert Grown Farms)

Parent Strains: Cookies and Cream + Do-Si-Dos

THC: 22%

CBD: 0.5%

Limone: 3.6 mg/g

Caryophyllene: 3.2 mg/g

Linalool: 1.8 mg/g

In the movie The Matrix, the main hero Neo meets a psychic who gives him bad news about his future.

To make him feel better, the psychic offers him a freshly baked cookie.

“I promise you,” she says. “By the time you’re done eating it, you’ll feel right as rain.”

That’s about as good a description of Desert Grown Cookies as we can come up with!

Take your first whiff of it, and you’ll get an earthy, pungent scent. Once you start burning/vaping the flower, that’s when the sweet, baked cookie smell comes through.

You get a floaty head high almost immediately, followed by a warm, relaxing feeling in your extremities.

You might think some serious couch-lock is about to set in, but then the high moves from your extremities into the center of your being, lifting you up.

Suddenly, the world doesn’t seem like such a tough place anymore. Maybe you’ll go for a jog or just hang out with some friends and relax.

Either way, right now, things do feel right as rain.

Good for treating: Anxiety, severe pain, nausea, appetite loss

2. Blueberry Muffins (The Facility)

Parent strains: Aghani + Blueberry

Phenotype: Blue Frost

THC: 21.6%

Limonene: 8.4 mg/g

Caryophyllene: 2.7 mg/g

Pinene: 1.6 mg/g

Smells like blueberries. Tastes like blueberry muffins straight out of the oven. And the Blueberry Muffins journey is almost the opposite of Desert Grown Cookies.

The high makes its way down into your body, hitting your feet. Your head, though, may feel clear…at first.

“So what?” you may think. “No head high?”

Patience, grasshopper.

Because once that body high hits your feet, it’s going to rise back up and into your head like warm water filling a vase.

Will it completely knock you out? No, unless you smoke a ton of it – then maybe. But just a modest amount will relax you but still allow you to function.

Good for treating: anxiety, stress, chronic pain, nausea

3. Neon Night (The Facility)

Phenotype: Black Afghan

THC: 15%

CBD: 0.1%

CBG-A: 0.3%

Myrcene: 3.4 mg/g

Pinene: 1.4 mg/g

Caryophyllene: 1.0 mg/g

As the name suggests, Neon Night is an indica strain best smoked after the Vegas sun has gone down and the neon lights have already started flashing.

It smells sweet, but when you smoke it, you’ll get an earthy (almost dusty), piney taste.

The head high hits you straight on, but it’s a relaxing one. No anxious thoughts allowed.

Once that happens, Neon Night will start working its way down into the rest of your body. After a few minutes, you’ll want to go from vertical to horizontal. To relax for just a minute, of course…

You do that, and…CLICK-CLICK! The couch-lock will set in, and that’ll be all she wrote.

Good night, sweet princes and princesses. Sleep well!

Good for treating: insomnia, headaches, pain
