Doing this review of the MK Ultra marijuana strain wasn’t at all what I expected. Based on the fact that this weed is named after a nefarious government program that tested potent LSD on unsuspecting victims, I expected MK Ultra to be one badass marijuana strain. I’ve heard about this strain here and there and have seen it on sold-out menus from time to time, so when I became a member at the Smoke Green cannabis club in Barcelona and saw that they offered MK Ultra, I just had to snatch it up. Unfortunately, it seems like I held my breath for nothing, as MK Ultra is a disappointing strain. Read Full Strain Review Here

I didn’t get high the first time I smoked marijuana. In fact, once I started smoking pot at about age 12, I continued for 6 months without ever getting high. I’m not saying I didn’t get very high or I only got high occasionally: I’m saying not at all after dozens of smoking sessions. For a long time I thought this was highly unusual and that I might be “special” in some way, but as it turns out, this happens to many people and no one is really sure why. Read Full Story Here

This marijuana strain review of Super Skunk is for the variety currently available to members of the Jammin cannabis club in Barcelona. I’ve declined various strains of Skunk lately in favor of some other more exotic marijuana strains, but decided to try Super Skunk and some Super Skunk hash at the same time primarily because the buds at Jammin looked really sweet. Overall I wasn’t disappointed, but Super Skunk just didn’t have what it takes to earn a 5 Star ranking. Read Full Strain Review Here

This marijuana strain review of Afghan Kush is for the variety offered by the Alhambra Culture Club on Carrer del Doctor Dou in Barcelona. There’s lots of Kush around right now, including Cranberry Kush that I tried a few weeks ago, as well as OG Kush, Gold Kush and others. But in my opinion, Afghan Kush is one of the best Kush marijuana strains, even though it’s still not one of my favorites. A potent 4 Star weed, Afghan Kush is a good strain if you want premium marijuana without getting too stoned or spending too much money. Read Full Strain Review Here

Alhambra is a beautiful, Middle-Eastern themed cannabis social club located on Carrer Doctor Dou in Barcelona. Although it’s near La Rambla, the club is well out of the way of the hustle and bustle of the surrounding touristy areas and is a great place to hang out and smoke some dank buds in a peaceful, clean and relaxed environment.  Alhambra also offers dinner and music every Friday night, free for all members. And when the dinner and music is over, another band comes in and the live music continues until 1AM, so if you’re a member here you can basically book your Fridays in advance each month.

This marijuana strain review is for a type of weed I had never heard of before: Black Lemon. At the time I had several of the most potent marijuana strains in the world placed in front of me and I had to force myself to only choose 2: Amnesia, NYC Diesel, Cheese or Black Lemon. When I opened a large glass jar of the Black Lemon and poked my nose inside, I knew I had to sample this beautiful strain. Diesel and Cheese are great, but I’ve smoked more of those strains than any other besides White Widow, so I was ready to try something new. I’m glad I did, because Black Lemon is just plain fucking awesome. Read Full Strain Review Here

It took me a long time to do this strain review of Amnesia because I simply couldn’t find this weed at any cannabis clubs in Barcelona. It’s around, but every time I went to a club they either didn’t have it at all, or they had just sold out of it. Thankfully, my friend Z from Sweet Dreams emailed me when he got some Amnesia in at the club, so I hopped on my bike and headed over to pick some up. Of course, I did a mini “smackdown” type review of this cannabis strain a couple of months ago, but I wanted to do an all out strain review considering this is one of my all-time favorite types of weed.

The Black Jack marijuana strain is a 50/50 blend of Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica. Normally I try to avoid C. Sativa unless it’s free or just plain stupefyingly potent, but I’ve been trying different combinations of blends out of the sake of experimentation. So far, this 50/50 is the best use of Sativa that I’ve found, making Black Jack a unique and sufficiently powerful marijuana strain to warrant regular use by just about anyone. Except me, of course, because I’m a Weed Snob and prefer to only smoke 5 Star strains. Read Full Strain Review Here

This hash review is for the type called “RDM Special,” which I believe was made by the folks at the RDM cannabis club, but I can’t remember from what types of weed it was made. In any case, when I asked the girl at the counter for the most potent hash they had, she recommended this type, saying that it was “very special” indeed. Turns out she was right; although this isn’t the most potent hash in the world, it is pretty special in that it has some unique characteristics. Read Full Hash Review Here

This marijuana strain review is for the Sweet Dreams Indica/Sativa blend offered so fittingly by the Sweet Dreams cannabis club in Barcelona, Spain. As the namesake weed of the club, I was pretty certain that I could count on this being a potent marijuana strain; and I was damn right. Sweet Dreams isn’t quite a 5 Star weed, but it’s pretty damn close. Read Full Strain Review Here

Criminal is an Indica-heavy blended marijuana strain that has been quite popular at cannabis clubs in Barcelona this fall. This particular strain I acquired from the Sweet Dreams cannabis club located a couple of Metro stops North of Diagonal. It’s not one of my favorites, but it’s fairly potent and the fragrance of this strain is superb. Read Full Strain Review Here

The 4:20 cannabis social club is one of the newest to join the cannabis club scene in Barcelona, but unlike many clubs of the latest wave they have done so with a very clear concept as you’ll see in this review. On the inside club 4:20 is clean but rustic and offers wide open spaces to socialize and relax. Read Full Club Review Here

The Critical Lemon cannabis strain has swiftly become one of my favorites because of its robust and comprehensive features. It’s some of the cheapest weed on the market at cannabis clubs in Barcelona, but it’s also some of the nicest smelling, longest lasting and potent marijuana strains around. That’s pretty cool because at an average of just 6 Euro per gram, Critical Lemon is comparable to other highly potent strains but is far cheaper. Read Full Review Here

Marijuana is a wildly hot topic in the U.S., so it’s not surprising that media outlets are intensely reporting on the subject. This includes coverage of a spate of recent marijuana-related robberies that have led some to claim that marijuana legalization will result in an increased rate of crime; especially near dispensaries. However, compelling evidence indicates that this is not true and that banks are still the preferred target for robberies. Read Full Story Here

Sweet Dreams is an aptly named cannabis club located on Carrer de Ballester in Barcelona. It’s aptly named because it has sweet artwork throughout, a sweet selection of weed and some pretty sweet extras. This club even offers a cannabis strain that is also called “Sweet Dreams,” which is the subject of another review. I knew right away that this was a 5 Star cannabis club, and if you go check it out yourself I’m certain you’ll agree with me that Sweet Dreams is, well, pretty damn sweet. Read Full Review Here

This marijuana strain review covers the Black Water variety acquired from the RDM private cannabis club in Barcelona. Black Water, like most cannabis strains available in Spain, is an Indica/Sativa blend. It came well-recommended but ultimately didn’t perform so well for me. In fact, after reviewing it I tossed it into a drawer and had to force myself to eventually smoke it in joints just to get rid of it. I mean, it’s certainly not dirt weed, but if you’re a Cannabis Connoisseur like me, you’ll probably want to leave this strain to the tourists. Read Full Review Here

Are mankind and marijuana biological evolutionary partners that cannot be parted without significant consequences? A complex symbiotic relationship appears to exist between man and cannabis, and we see this connection in our physiochemical makeup, our cultural consciousness and memory, our incessant at-all-costs demand for the plant, and as recorded throughout human history. Ultimately, we are who we are today in large part because of our long relationship with the cannabis plant. This article examines the evidence supporting the co-evolution theory and discusses its importance and uncanny timeliness given the current worldwide marijuana legalization movement.

Yumboldt is a potent marijuana strain that has quickly become one of my all-time favorites. I’m not the only one who holds this strain in high regard either – at the cannabis clubs I go to, any time Yumboldt is mentioned people start smiling. In fact, Yumboldt is so good I had to try three times in order to write this review: the first two times I smoked all of it and forgot to take notes or pictures. So here we are; ‘three times a charm,’ and with this marijuana strain I don’t mind at all! Read Full Review Here.

I am a weed snob. Although I prefer the term “cannabis connoisseur,” a weed snob is someone who declines, avoids or scoffs at marijuana that doesn’t meet their standards. But there is a difference between a weed snob, a cannabis connoisseur, and the general pot-smoking population of the United States, and the growing cannabis culture is going to make this much more apparent. See, it used to be that weed was just weed… Read More Here

RDM is a private cannabis club in Barcelona that will almost certainly become one of the top clubs in the city in the coming years. Already one of the most stunning and trendy of Barcelona’s cannabis clubs, RDM is currently undergoing renovations that will soon make it even better. And considering that RDM has an interesting and fairly large selection of marijuana available to its members, this could be the last Barcelona cannabis club you ever join. Read Full Review Here
