Medical Marijuana review: Super Lemon Haze

Super Lemon Haze is a nice, even high, but I’d have been just as happy partaking of it at home, listening to records or watching some “Rick & Morty”

Cannabinthusiast | Medical Marijuana Review: Super Lemon Haze

There’s something about the name Super Lemon Haze that’s incredibly inviting, so my hope was that this strain would not disappoint. It did not, but the world around me did…

On a cool, overcast afternoon, I DynaVaped a capful before heading out on a walk to the grocery store. Tunes at the ready, I dove into the album “Worldwide” by Everything But The Girl, who last week released new music for the first time since 1999. The single is called “Nothing Left to Lose” and it and its music video are killer. The full album, “Fuse,” will be out in April. “Worldwide” is not one of EBTG’s better known records. I’m a huge fan of it (but then I’m a huge fan of their entire discography), and it was an ideal album for the weather I was walking through, while blissfully yet not overly high. Its sweet fusion of jazz and pop was the perfect background for ambling stoned on an overcast day. “Talk to Me Like the Sea” in particular grabbed me and lifted my spirits alongside the Super Lemon Haze.

Super Lemon Haze is a nice, even high, but I could tell as soon as I got out and about that even though I was feeling great on my walk, and I’d have been just as happy to partake of this strain at home, listening to records or watching some “Rick & Morty.” What I could not have foreseen is my elevated mood going disastrously off the rails. As I approached the grocery store, which exists in a sort of strip mall type of complex, a crew of workmen was busy cutting down some perfectly great pecan trees in a median-type area of the parking lot. Did I say cutting down? I meant murdering them.

I’ve written before here of the intense connections I can feel with nature when I am high, often in ways that I would never feel were I sober, and this was suddenly one of them. I was livid, so I found a grocery manager in the parking lot that I raged at. He gave me a standard, “Hey, it’s not my decision – it’s whoever owns the strip mall.” Then I went up to one of the men cutting down the trees and asked why they were tasked with this job (oddly, I was not as belligerent with this man who was simply doing his job). As expected, to make more parking spaces. Sigh. Maybe 30 or 40 more if they’re lucky?

Look, I am under no illusion about the world around me and I’m well aware that most of the spaces I exist in have probably had trees and foliage and animals living on them at some previous time. But that immediacy that cannabis has the power to give to the environment around you is a strong one, and I felt it hard in these moments. What had seemed to be a wonderful afternoon had been sullied by industry and commerce. The world is a shitty place and parking spaces will always take precedence over some trees that have been doing nobody any harm for the past century.

Super Lemon Haze is a Hybrid strain heavily leaning toward Sativa. Its dominant terpene is Terpinolene.
