Every Day Is Nature Appreciation Day With This Strain
One puff and I'm falling in love with desert landscapes all over again.
A good weed strain is versatile. A controversial statement, I know, but ideally weed can help you relax when you need to or feel stimulated when you need to get things done. A good strain soothes both the mind and the body. It works as well in crowded situations as it does when you’re alone. It fits your mood and helps you appreciate whatever circumstances you’re in. As you can probably imagine, a good strain is hard to find.
“Just two shallow puffs of this baby sent me into a spiral of heavenly bliss.”
I recently moved from a sprawling Arizona cityscape to a small desert town near Joshua Tree, California. Sometimes I wonder why I made this choice but, as weird as it sounds, Lowell Farms’ Purple Peyote Diesel (PPD) helped remind me. From my experience, PPD is as incredibly diverse as it is incredibly powerful. Lowell Farms’ flower in particular gave off a grapefruit lemonade scent that was tingly to the nose. This indicated to me that it promised something with a sativa kick, while the ‘peyote’ part of the name hinted at some strong, psychedelic vibes. The name and smell didn’t disappoint—just two shallow puffs of this baby sent me into a spiral of heavenly bliss.
This strain was good for everything from zoning out in front of the TV to easing back pain while moving heavy furniture. It even came in handy when I decided to explore a bit of nature and reflect on my place in the world—after I pushed through the couch-lock, that is. After two small hits from a mini-bong, I was glued to the couch while I ate breakfast and watched some Saturday morning cartoons. I was almost too stoned but didn’t fully stumble over that threshold. Considering this strain from Lowell Farms’ lineup packs nearly 30% THC, I can’t say I’m all that surprised the high was initially heavy. While I had some trouble making decisions at first (so much anime to watch), I felt rewired and energized in no time at all. This was great because I hadn’t slept well the night before and really needed that energy boost.
