Making Grown Men Cry Since 1992
It was a brisk and cold winter day here in Albuquerque—the type of day that is dreadfully overcast and howls with searing cold wind. I wanted to just bundle up and relax in the comfort and coziness of my apartment, but I needed something special to truly achieve that feeling. I decided I would brave the elements to seek a calming and soothing strain for this doldrum of a day. I headed Downtown to check out Harvest Foundation (220 Copper Ave NW, Ste. 110A).The Toxic Spill strain I tried there last time was a potent and enjoyable one, so I was excited to see what else was on offer. I asked one of the budtenders what her favorite strain was and she suggested the indica-dominant Biscotti (THC: 25.06%, CBD: 0.47%—$11/gram). She said it was tasty and very relaxing. I decided to take a look and see if I couldn’t get a whiff.The buds exhibited a fine array of color ranging from a shockingly electric green and yellow to a deeper emerald. The nuggets were large, chunky and coated in fine crystals and sugars as well as light patches of orange and reddish hairs. The smell had a very woodsy scent that reminded me of tree roots or mushrooms from a lush forest floor. The aroma and fine appearance had me intrigued, so I was willing to listen to the budtender’s suggestion. I darted back home through the wailing winds and eagerly began setting up a movie, some snacks, blankets and of course a fine, fat bowl. I ground up the earthy smelling buds into a powder and quickly sparked the herb. I was immediately struck with a lightly sweet and buttery flavor that reminded me of toasted marshmallows or slightly burnt sugar cookies. The budtender wasn’t lying when she said that it was tasty.I gingerly paced back to my couch and began locking myself under the blankets in preparation for some great relaxation. I didn’t feel anything for a few minutes—as this was a slow-building high—but once I began feeling the effects, I was in a euphorically comfortable state. My mood mellowed and my muscles began to loosen. I vaguely recall one of the budtenders stating something about its benefits for inflammation, but I’m not completely certain. Either way, my body felt relaxed and chilled.I could see this particular strain being good for depression, nausea, pain, stress, insomnia and possibly even inflammation. I felt very content and comfortable, which was exactly what I was seeking for the day. I continued my day under the blankets and eventually smoked myself into a lulling dream state. It was truly a wondrously calming experience. I found Biscotti to be a very soothing strain that not only tasted and smelled wonderful, but also felt great physically and mentally. I would highly suggest trying out Biscotti for those seeking a scrumptious and appealingly different strain.
