What does good pot look like?

I think being able to choose a strain of cannabis just by looks and smell is a superpower. Since I don’t have any superpowers, I’ve tried to find other ways to judge pot. One sign of an awesome strain is the amount of resin that ends up on your fingertips while cleaning it.

Resin: a sticky flammable organic substance, insoluble in water, exuded by some trees and other plants (notably fir and pine).

I call this “sticky” bud. To remove the resin, I have to wash my hands twice. (Twice!) It’s hard to find sticky bud like this, and it appears to be rare, at least in my neck of the woods.

It’s time to thank Mother Nature again for creating such a perfect plant.πŸ™‚

The Alien

01dsc03495-0

Aliens tell the story of one of their ancestors who visited Earth in ancient times. While the aliens found humans to be primitive, that didn’t stop the power of attraction that blossomed between the two species.

The story tells of an alien named Q who fell in love with a human called Ruth. Because of the Alien Code of Conduct, Q’s love remained hidden and unrequited. But because he loved Ruth so very much and wanted to honor her, he managed to smuggle a special alien flower to Earth, which he planted in Ruth’s backyard while she slept.

Q watched the alien flower blossom and grow, bringing Ruth great joy. Ruth’s neighbors began to stop by, bringing homemade desserts as an excuse to visit the alien flower. Strangers drove for hours to visit the flower that only existed in Ruth’s backyard. Plant experts from all over the world also visited Ruth’s flower, which she named “The Alien.”

When alien officials learned of Q’s crime, he was banned from returning to Earth. He was also banished to Pluto, where he lived out his remaining days dreaming about Ruth, never to fall in love again.

Ruth lived out her days alone, too, tending to her special flower with all the love and attention she was unable to shower on the giver — a stranger who just happened to be an alien from another planet.

To some in the alien world, Q is a criminal. But to others — especially the young folk — Q is a hero. As far back as ancient times, the story of Q and Ruth has been whispered with reverence from student to student, planet to planet, across the galaxy.

Because no matter where you live or what species you are, love is a universal language that everyone understands. But don’t wait around until you find it or it finds you. As Stephen Sills said, “Love the one you’re with.”

It’s hard to decide which photos to post. It’s not like I can post them all. And I don’t want to bore everyone. Often I’m like, well, that’s a pretty shot, but I’ve already chosen so many…

But then I think, fuck it, if I like it, that’s enough for me. After all, this is my therapy. It’s not like ya’ll are paying me for this free “entertainment.”πŸ™‚

From Wikipedia: Β The Lobo is the official mascot of the University of New Mexico (UNM)… “Lobo” is the Spanish word for “wolf” and was suggested as the school mascot in 1920 by George S. Bryan, editor of the school newspaper and student manager of the football team. “The Lobo is respected for his cunning, feared for his prowess, and is the leader of the pack,” wrote Bryan in the October 1, 1920 issue of the newspaper…
