So...I definitely did have a joint ready and waiting for the premiere of Game Of Thrones last night! I actually opted for a "Laughing Buddha" and it was great! Definitely elevated the show watching experience. Anybody else tune in to last nights episode, and if so...what was your strain of choice?

    I would try an Indica to start with, something higher in CBD than THC.
    Harlequin is a great beginner strain.
    Make sure to be in a safe place and with people you trust for the first few times so your body can get used to how it reacts.
    Good luck!

    • From BahaqueenM

      Thank you so much! Super helpful! I tried the Harlequin as you suggested and had a great experience. Thanks again!

      • From Avengergrl

        Amazing, so glad it worked out well. I find splendid like 1 hour a day researching something different about cannabis. Terpenes are a great thing to look into, will open your experience up.
        Feel free to message me.

  • From MCC

    Yes you must start off with a balanced blend, I suggest nothing more than 7% THC to start with equal or more CBD to balance.

    • From BahaqueenM

      Thank you, this was helpful!

The Best Strains To Watch The Final Season of "Game Of Thrones"

We at JADEO are huge fans of HBO’s “Game of Thrones”. So naturally, we are definitely excited that “winter is coming”. In honour of this weekend’s final season premier we decided to round up some of the best cannabis strains to partake in while enjoying this seasons episodes.

Zombie Haze

In honour of the white walkers, because they are technically zombies right? It's a sativa-dominant strain that has the power to wake up the dead. It stimulates the brain and relaxes all at the same time. Making it perfect for watching a GOT episode as it will keep you attentive but also relaxed through stressful scenes.

Laughing Buddha

You’re going to need something to lift your mood with the impending doom of the Night King. This award winning sativa will have you feeling happy, upbeat, and even like the name suggests laughing. Happiness and a good laugh is necessary when dealing with the treachery of the Lannisters.

White Widow

You do know Daenerys is a white-haired widow? Or do you know nothing Jon Snow? A world famous hybrid known for a quick onset of euphoria and energy. Which is perfect, since this seasons episodes are reportedly 2 hours in length. This strain will ensure you don’t miss a second of the action!

Church OG

Old Gods, New Gods or even the Church can’t save us from the White Walkers. So this strain is perfect as it induces that exact opposite of church behaviour...just kidding! This notorious indica strain gives a burst of energy and giddiness, followed by the desire to sleep. And let’s be real, sleep is all you’re going to want after the drama in each of the intense final 6 episodes.

Chemdawg

An award winning, phenomenon of a show like Game of Thrones has earned the right for a cannabis hall of famer like this. This strain is known for an upbeat and energetic high that exudes happiness, and we need all the happiness we can get to make it through the final season of our fave show. Newbies beware this strain isn’t for the faint of heart.

Whether you are a fan of House Stark, House Lannister, House Targaryen, or the Night King, we hope these strains get you through this season. Leave a note in the comments to let us know your go-to strain this season. Valar Morghulis.

Disclaimer: How a strain affects an individual is dependent on many personal factors. As such, each individual may experience the same strain in varying ways. This list is a general recommendation and we cannot guarantee the results of your experience. Proceed at your own risk.

The Best Books on Growing Cannabis

Have you ever considered the benefits of growing your own cannabis? As any winemaker, homebrewer, or backyard gardener can tell you, there’s a particular joy in doing it yourself. Saving money is also a big motivator to Canadians who are looking to take advantage of the new 4 plant per person permit post-legalization (in provinces where allowed). If you’ve never grown your own, it’s not as simple as sprinkling seeds and watering every few days. Cannabis is a fascinating plant that can require finneky soil profiles and specific light cycles in order to flower perfect buds. With more and more JADEO members inquiring about “how to,” we decided to roundup the best guides for growing your own that can provide trusted and reliable advice while learning about some of the nuances of the plant.

Grow Your Own Understanding, Cultivating, and Enjoying Cannabis

By Nichole Graf, Micah Sherman, David Stein, Liz Crain

Grow Your Own Understanding, Cultivating, and Enjoying Cannabis

If you are looking for a book that really breaks down all the basics of growing cannabis, this is it. Reference it as an important resource when growing your own plants, or with its beautifully designed pages it can make for a cool coffee table book to leaf through. The book provides all the background and instruction you need to set up a grow space, raise your plants, and harvest your buds. It will teach you how to choose a strain based on its profile and effects, how to manage insects and molds without the use of pesticides, and how to mix just the right soil.

More than just a growing guide, Grow Your Own is a sort of appreciation guide. The book brings to the foreground the many ways to enjoy cannabis, rich with icons, posh photography and diagrams (like how to carve an apple pipe) that can be appreciated by someone at any level of familiarity; from canna-curious to connoisseur.

What's Wrong with My Marijuana Plant?: A Cannabis Grower's Visual Guide to Easy Diagnosis and Organic Remedies

By David Deardorff and Katherine Wadsworth

What's Wrong with My Marijuana Plant?: A Cannabis Grower's Visual Guide to Easy Diagnosis and Organic Remedies

So you’ve ventured out and have begun growing your own cannabis. What if you get beginners paranoia and start to imagine issues with your lady friend? Or worse, what if you actually run into powdery mildew or other common issues associated with cannabis plants that you can’t even begin to identify on your own.

This book offers up a visual diagnostic system by authors Deardorff and Wadsworth for identifying pests, disease, and environmental problems by symptom: What are those rusty spots on your leaves? What bug is eating your buds? Why are your sativa sprouts covered in fuzz?

This book helps you troubleshoot but can be used as a complete guide as it offers up a thorough overview of best growing practices to avoid issues at the onset. Photography and illustration helps act as a visual reference to decode any strange things on your plant that you may not recognize or understand.

Craft Weed: Family Farming and the Future of the Marijuana Industry

By Ryan Stoa

Craft Weed: Family Farming and the Future of the Marijuana Industry

In this socio-political look at the history and current conditions of the craft weed industry, author Ryan Stoa argues that the future of the cannabis industry should be powered by small farms. To make his case for craft cannabis, Stoa “interviews veteran and novice marijuana growers, politicians, activists, and cannabis investors. He provides a history of cannabis farming and its post-hippie resurgence in the United States. He reports on the amazing adaptability of the cannabis plant and its genetic gifts, the legalization movement, regulatory efforts, the tradeoffs of indoor versus outdoor farms, and the environmental impacts of marijuana agriculture.”

Stoa organizes his work in such a way that all roads lead back to craft cannabis, creating a compelling argument for his belief that it the industry’s model should be more craft beer than Anheuser-Busch. To protect and promote small farmers and their communities, he proposes a “Marijuana Appellation system,” which is modeled after the wine industry. This system Stoa invents would provide a certified designation of origin to local crops, promoting a sustainable, local, and artisanal farming model.

The potential of small craft farmers frames a utopian ideal of using legalization as a way to revitalize rural communities and the American family farm. The author asks us to consider the kind of agriculture we want as prohibition comes to an end and we “plan for a future that is almost here.” An important book for any grower starting to consider the larger socio-political concerns involved with small-scale growing.

We hope these books assist you in your cannabis growing journey. Don’t see your fave? Comment and let us know your book of choice.

LA Confidential: A Strain Review

Last night I sampled Indiva's "LA Confidential" strain. This strain is Indica dominant with approximately 19% THC. It also has the terpenes Caryophyllene and Myrcene. This strain was identified as one that was great for rest, so I tried it shortly before bed.

The flavour was quite earthy when smoking, and the onset was fairly quick. It definitely was a body high and caused my skin and body to feel a bit tingly and sensitive to touch. For a complete novice, this may be a little scary/weird. But I found it oddly relaxing. I was able to fall asleep with 20mins of smoking and had quite a deep, restful sleep.

Has anybody else tried this strain yet?

So as promised I sampled the DNA Genetics "Chocolate Fondue" strain last night. It is a Sativa dominant strain with approximately 19.2% THC, and both limonene and pinene Terpenes. I fell in love with this strain. It had a subtle sweet flavour. It was very smooth to smoke and had a sweet but slightly funky aroma. The high was a nice and mellow, and great for socializing. I really enjoyed my experience with it and would definitely buy it again.

    I am adding this to my list of "Must Try's" .. sounds amazing, I love the name too. Sometimes I wonder if the people who name strains, also play a part in naming nail polish colours. They are so creative!!
