QUOTES:
 
Sour Diesel - $360
Cottonwood, CALIFORNIA
“Locally grown. Very strong odor and a nice mellow high.”
 
Thai Lights - $400
Indianapolis, INDIANA
“This smoke is Amazing! Chocolate Thai x Skunk #1 x Northern Lights. Sticky and covered with crystals. A fruity, musky smell and a distinct red wine flavor! Fat, fluffy buds that are worth every dollar!”
 
Mango Train Wreck - $400
Severna Park, MARYLAND
“My favorite. It gives an instant high with a strong scent of mango. The inhale is a bit strong but the exhale is smooth.“
 
Hydro - $280
Middleboro, MASSACHUSETTS
“Decent Hydro grown by first timer. Nothing too special but it definitely gets the job done. Pretty pleasing price – under $20 a blunt.”
 
MK-Ultra - $480
Eagle River, WISCONSIN

This is the best bud I’ve ever seen around here. Very hard nugs that are super sticky, very dank. Help us overgrow the Northwoods!”
