Lush this Week: Heating Up

Come take advantage of our specials the rest of June, only 7 days left. Stay posted for our July specials at the beginning of the month. We still have a great selection of shatter from Nomad extracts and are expecting a big drop from our friends at Craft on Wednesday. There will be a strain specific Chocolope PHO wax and Larry OG White Cheese mix that should be delicious.

We have a fresh drop of ice wax/water hash today from a new company CSC. They included a beautiful rosin budder that looks as good as a PHO wax, which is impressive. The full melt and budder are all the same flavor, Grandma’s Fabuloso, a mix of Grandma Cindy and Fabuloso. We have grown the strain Fabuloso before but decided to bring it back in the garden specifically for concentrates and especially for full melt. It is a heavy indica with a very detectable fruity flavor that really stands out in concentrate form. As mentioned before the staff at CSC were formerly Trichome Heavy Extracts.

It came to my attention recently that perhaps people are relying solely on smoking flower as a means to deal with things like insomnia. While this approach may be affective for some, if you are building up a tolerance smoking flower alone may not always be enough to aid with more persistent issues or ailments. Edibles and hash are both options to find more relief.

Edibles affect you on more of a full-body level instead of a lighter head high. So they are more sedative and more able to ease pain throughout the body and keep you sleeping throughout the night. Hash on the other hand may still feel like a “head high” but the strength is at least triple that of the strongest flower. So again the affect could be more sedation and better pain relief. If dabbing hash seems intimidating to first time users a great alternative is a hash pen. We primarily sell Cloud V’s which are user friendly, convenient, and reasonably priced. Don’t ever be afraid to try something new in the cannabis world!

The temperatures outside are really starting to heat up and after a rare full moon you may be feeling tensions in the air. The only things to do are drink water, take a deep breath, find AC, smoke some flowers, and appreciate the seasons and the ebbs and flows of this beautiful universe. Every season, every moment serves a unique purpose and our job is to learn to appreciate it all. Stay cool friends and have a great weekend.

Lush this Week: Summer Sun

Summer is finally in full swing after a dreary spring in Colorado. The summer months have always been my favorite when it comes to cannabis consumption! This month we are running great specials in both Rooster and Culture magazine. For the month of June we are selling $80 1/2 oz’s, $20/g of wax, and $25/g of shatter. We are also offering $700/oz’s of shatter to everyone and $650/oz. for members.

We are introducing a new strain to the mix this month, Star Dawg OG. It has already impressed the growers and should be on the shelves by next week. There is also a fairly large amount of White Cheese in stock, one of my new personal favorites. Despite not having any OG genetics, the White Cheese reminds me of our most popular strains OG Kush and LA Kush, in terms of its aroma and flavor. Because of this it has quickly placed itself on my list of top 5 favorite strains here at Lush.

Over the past couple months we have cycled through a number of concentrate companies and have been pleased with all of them. We currently have White Mousse, Craft, CBD, Nomad, and live resin from 710 Labs. In the next two weeks we are expecting a water hash drop from a new company CSC (Concentrate Supply Company). However, they are old friends from Trichome Heavy Extracts so we are excited to be working with them again.

We have over 10 flavors of concentrates in total and all look and taste fantastic. The majority are currently from Nomad. The blasters at Nomad prefer to use mixed gas when processing our material so our shatter currently is 70% butane and 30% propane. The end result is a stable, clear and tasty product. The new waves of innovation in the concentrate world are fascinating. It’s exciting to witness the evolution, every year the quality and variety of products improves. We must always remind ourselves how lucky we are to be in Colorado on the cutting edge of creation.

Stay cool friends and enjoy the beautiful weather. We hope to see you all soon.
