Our Process


Only Clean Glass!

To be critical, it is of the upmost importance to start in the right place. In reviewing cannabis, this is our clean white sheet of paper.. 

So if not literally using paper (rolling a joint), the best option for critically profiling cannabis is a clean glass piece. Cooling the smoke helps to focus on the aroma and taste & as such, a clean glass bong is a great analyzer of a given strain's flavor profile.


Only Real Buds!

Get it. Got it, but is it actually Good? 

If it's overly dry, we will tell you. 

If it's not ready, we won't lie..

If it's perfect, we will give it a HIGH FIVE!!!


Only Fresh Thoughts!

The second that experimental smoke hits and gets in to the stream, the feeling is transcribed like a medium channeling ghosts of cannabis past!! 

Only these are direct & cut to the issue at hand: Is the cannabis item good, should it be bought?

We know your time and money are valuable and nobody wants to bother wasting them, so we are here to help focus like a laser to where they are best served. Let us waste money on a so-so sample so you don't have to.

Cannabis is medicine



The active component of the marijuana plant, cannabinoids, have been shown to inhibit tumor growth and kill cancer cells in lab testings. We work with a number of patients who use cannabis to treat their cancer and suppress it's side effects. 




Medical marijuana contains antispasmodic qualities which relax muscles and has shown to be an effective treatment for seizures. Marijuana oils that are rich in cannabidol (CBD), are the preferred method for treatment.


Chronic Pain & Opiate Reduction


Patients who suffer from chronic pain caused by diabetes, cancer, MS, HIV, and other diseases have been turning to medical cannabis as a way to treat pain & other symptoms without the use of addictive pharmaceuticals, specifically opiate based medications. 

Beyond these three examples, there are many other conditions for which medicinal cannabis can provide healing. Talk to your doctor before starting any new treatment plan.
