What is this shit? I've been all over the world and cannot get over the fact that the only bad weed I've ever smoked has come from legal Az grows; this shit is the only weed I've ever seen that even has negative aspects to speak of. I was never picky. I smoked the larf n shake when slangin lbs. Reggie stems from brick taste better than dispensary calyx plucked with tweezers. There are some really specific smells in AZ dispos that have no relation to Cannabis whatsoever. I have NEVER seen buds that smell like Cheddar powder and have a orange tint. I never smelled dried buds that smelled like stagnant water, corn flakes and lawn clippings before. I thought the tea smelling beasters was shit... Now i miss cheap ass beasters. I hate this state. I hate every second I'm here. For one reason. The weed is absolutely unrecognizable. Sure, it looks like weed. But why does it taste like everything but weed? The high is garbage, the medicinal value is 0, those things don't throw me for a loop though, it's the fact that 99% of the weed here tastes like ingredients instead of end product. I've even found some quasi organic grows (doesn't smell/taste like Rubbermaid) and they are fucked too. The chem shit like Health For Life grows smells and taste like scented plastic. Never was a fan of synthetics,but in AZ it's pure plastic tasting full dose unflushed poison. So the "organic" outfits? Taste like fukkin ingredients! Peanuts. Onion powder. Lemon rind. Like the raw ingredients some novice thinks should contribute to a flavor he experienced 2 decades ago. It's impostor weed. I can tell you what brand of essential oil the last Durban Poison I smelled was scented with. I know this shit. I've gotten real weed from dispos maybe 5-6 times in 3 years. It's always fake when i go back. I've learnt to spot cheddar and strawberry scented bud by color. I've had Strawberry Cough before. These buds are FAKE. Or else... the dispos are in some alternative reality, I do not get it. I can not accept that Arizona produces, exclusively, the only bud I can collectively call bad weed, across the board. I've used sulfur products before. I have a good idea about their olfactory detection, as i hate the smell of raw sulfurs. This dispos weed is not the same stuff that grows in the ground. It can't be. It all taste like an unmixed pile of raw ingredients. Like failed attempt to build weed. Like it was 3d printed with fake ingredients. Even comparing 2 buds, the dispo bud just seems off. Hard to describe, its just not interesting to look at. Hairs don't look right, color is off, everything is small and undetailed, bud looks 10 years old and lifeless even though they look so similar to real dank weed, so lifeless. If you think I'm just being a dick, go to Phoenix Relief Center right now, and tell me why they have a strain labeled Forest Fire that smells like cheddar powder and nothing else, says cheddar on the back of the jar, taste nothing like weed and is the same exact non-cannabis smell/flavor that entire dispensary menus have had at some point. I have NEVER smelled or tasted bud that was soaked in liquid cheese whiz until I came to AZ. I know all the cheesiest strains. They dont taste like cheez powder soaked lawn clippings. Same with lots of smells here. I have NEVER had weed [with a smell] cause any negative side effects on my respiratory system. ALL of the bud with a noticeable aroma in Az has negative side effects on my respiratory system. The scents are NOT from Cannabis. I have been doing this too long to be told some nasty vanilla banana smell belongs to: Durban Poison, Jack Herer and a million other strains I've grown over and over. Or that every strain smells like chocolate dollar store minicakes because that's what real weed smells like (no its from your fish additive, and your buddies use it too late in flower). I can readily tell many dispensaries use bottled products I've encountered. PBP left its plastic flower aroma all over the valley until i told every one of them they were using it,then it started with a plastic candy aroma and equal respiratory torture. I never smelled pbp in buds before. Never believed in flushing. Never tasted a chem in my life. Never smelled sulfurs, never tasted peanuts, never smelled rotten milk. And i love the funkiest strains. Its offensive to be offered a milk sprayed moldbud and told how dank or funky it is. Fuck you. I had mold once. It motivated me to grow better. I sprayed it with milk, washed the buds in water, and made crude decarb for edibles. You cant handle the shit any other way. Especially not putting it on the fucking shelf as Sour Kush. Living in AZ is like having extra sensory perception to contaminants that I was never really aware of before. Why would anyone grow weed with no smell, when it makes the contaminants so obvious? No one, literally no one back home grows like this. I've never seen a price tag on a bag of weed that didn't smell/taste like weed at all, let alone smelled/tasted strongly like grow products. Like who the fuck thinks Sour Kush smells like Sour Milk? Arizonians I guess, got yall heads so far up the dispensaries asses you can taste their nutes too. Probably an improvement over the nasty, fake, unweed of AZ. Let me give you the retard test. Kush. What's it taste like? IF YOU SHOP AT DISPENSARIES YOU CANT TELL ME. Youve been let down. I thought dispensaries would be a place to hood me over and learn about new strains while in AZ recovering from medical malpractice. Thanks for nothing but more anguish, Arizona. I'm not retarded. I can tell the difference between naturally fruity weed flavors, and plant matter soaked in fruit juice. People in Az think these dispensaries really have berry flavored weed. No the grow store has berry scented fertilizers. I smell this fake shit everywhere I go and can only assume it's one of these fucking loser bud perfumes or the other. Terpnado, Shark Nuts, SuperCrunk Skunkwerkz. Real growers don't go to the cannanute store so who the fuck knows. But i know weed. I know it's limited profiles and unlimited combos of said profiles. Besides that point, why would every bud on the shelf smell like haybails, except for one strawberry themed strain that smells like strawberries? Well that's because it all smells like haybails, and they scent the strains with a name whos theme matches whatever bullshit additive they have laying around. I never knew why OGs Cookies and Gorgilla Glue were popular until i went to Arizona [dispensaries]. Its because the growers don't fuck with those strains as bad. They read online that "Terpinator changes da flavor of da og but u kan use it on da less known strains, it improve da flavor of my farts", so Cookies, GG, and OG don't get the bullshit treatment as often. Thats the only reason, gsc and gg4 are consistently natural smelling, since people know them. You will see haybail GSC before you see haybail Strawberry Cough because they are always willing to fake the lesser knowns. So you have reggie OGs (not even midgrade) and sub reggie non leets that taste like playdough and robot dick, oh and it's all hydroponic, so keep sniffing that bag and use your imagination for flavor. Like i said the organic buds Ive ran across don't taste like hash/weed, they taste like terroir amendment. I cant wait to be the fuck out of here. So i can get back to growing. Weed that actually counts as weed. The first buds I ran across back home assured me, weed still smells and tastes amazing, elsewhere. That first visit out of state reminded me, all weed tastes good when it's real weed grown naturally. I love weed. Weed i can grow from seed and still get a good hash flavor and uplifting high from. Weed that smells like heavenly edible versions of the world's most controversial smells; skunk, fuels, body odor, bacterial warfare. Weed that always has a sugary, spicy, fumey, candy or hashy taste no matter what seed it came from. Not this fake dispensary shit giving my beloved herb a bad name. Not this onion powder tasting, peanut smelling bud giving organic growing a bad name. Not this bud that's literally been soaked in something to make it oily. Have you ever bought a sack of weed that 100% for certain had been soaked in CHEESEBURGER GREASE, after you spent 5 months investigating what the hell it could have been? Well I have. I never in my life would have believed the shit you hear about blackmarket growers. I never saw it, and got sick to my stomach even thinking about producing something unnatural. But now I'm sitting with lab results trying to make sense of all the contaminants that have nothing to do with weed, thats in weed, coming from legal dispos and delivery services in Arizona.
