I know I buy a lot from these guys. As soon as it stops being a good idea I promise I’ll stop doing it. But once again – this is just superior fuckin’ weed. First of all – the smell and aroma coming off of this I could identify with my eyes closed. Like – it smells like orange zest to a crazy degree. It comes across in the smoke as well. But what is really remarkable about this bud is how smooth it is. There is no cough. Nothing. It’s insanely smooth to hit. I deliberately took bigger hits and still it all went down smooth. I am impressed.
The high is pretty jumpy for me. Like I feel good and I could do a little dancing. Maybe slow dancing but still – dancing. Like something at the tempo of Human Nature by Michael Jackson or something like that.
Weird story – that song was actually submitted as a B side by mistake on a tape that Steve Porcaro, the keyboardist of Toto, submitted to Quincy Jones with a single he wanted to get onto Thriller. They flipped the tape, heard the track, and of course now it is resampled in many modern songs. Because a great hook is a great hook and Toto fuckin’ rocked.
Another fun fact – Joseph Stanley Willams, who fronted the band from ’85 – ’88 – was the son of composer John Williams. Also their hit Rosanna is not about Rosanna Arquette, but she was dating their keyboardist at the time the song broke and they all pretended it was at first to make some news.
Enough about Toto. Let me tell you about Orange Juice. Orange Juice is part of a balanced breakfast. It is also the name of this weed strain which is just super floaty and neat.
There is decidedly something about weed with a wide, interesting, well formed terpene profile that makes it stand out against other strains. Where I differ in opinion with the marketing / messaging around this is that we have the4 ability to predict good combinations yet. I feel like we all just discovered salad after eating only lettuce for many years. So we’re all like – super excited to find all these new vegetables (terpenes) to make salad more exciting. But what also matters in that equation is both the quality and the balance of vegetables, if you think of what we all know about salad. So you and I can have the same salad – by which I mean the same ingredients – at 2 different restaurants, and have vastly different experiences and also – to continue the analogy far beyond reason – vastly different price points.
What I’m trying to say is – this weed is like eating all your vegetables and enjoying a healthy brain as a result. This is obviously science and that is the end of my proof.
