The cannabis from the dispensary has been SICK lately!
Just when I think I have found a new strain to be my one and only, my fickle fancy flounders to the next hot bud that comes along.
This week, it’s Louis XIII. It’s brand new at the hottest dispensary in the Village…
Dong! Good morning, it’s 4:20 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 9 in Paris. I’m David Heitz, and this…is YOUR Morning Bowl!
Louis XIII was a French monarch associated with expensive bourbon. How expensive? A bottle bearing his name went for $135,000 at auction last year, CNBC reported.
As for the strain of cannabis bearing his name, again, I turn to Leafly:
“King Louis XIII might be most famous for making wigs on men de rigeur for the French aristocracy, but in Southern California the name will bring to mind a popular indica-dominant strain. This strain announces itself as many people did in the 1600s – by its smell. The difference is this monarch’s odor is one that’s meant to be enjoyed; its dense nugs have an overwhelming piney smell with an earthy musk that will have you thinking of your last forest adventure. Bred in part form OG Kush, Louis XIII has a very similar spicy kush aroma. Good for insomnia, this strain often tests at over 20 percent THC.”
Mine is labeled 27.84 percent. There is a small amount of CBN, too.
Louis XIII has not put me to sleep today, although I slept well last night and have not been fatigued. This strain has allowed me to focus on difficult tasks because my mind is not wandering to unpleasant places.
While some strains produce a “stoner” effect where I cannot write, others do not. And it doesn’t really have anything to do with THC levels, I have noticed.
However, this strain is a bit “trippy,” for lack of a better word, which is good for the creative mind so long as one can maintain focus.
I find psychedelic effects free my mind rather than cloud it. It’s a higher state of mindfulness, for me.
But this strain comes with a warning from me: When I first hit the joint when I woke up this morning (yes, people do that, it’s quite pleasant), I sort of lost my balance. This weed comes with an instant head to toe tingle…it’s really quite powerful.
Then everything melts into euphoria of mind and comfort of body.
Holy hell this stuff is incredible. I was so relaxed when I walked around the block several times today that I thought I was floating. When I sparked up that first joint this morning, I drew pictures of hot air balloons. What does that tell you?
Louis XIII comes in the form of three joints in a pack by Revolution Cannabis for $25. The joints are almost a gram each.
I had nothing to smoke today other than two Louis XIII joints. I sparked the second joint around 11 a.m. (seven hours after the first) and finished it up around 7 p.m. Central time.
At a cost of three joints for $25, you can bet I’ll buy this product again. I could get through the day with just one of these joints rather easily, I suspect.
If you can medicate with your cannabis at $8 a day, you’re doing very, very, very well in Illinois. The only Pharma medication I take now is for my blood pressure. I even have been able to greatly reduce that, thanks to my weight loss, and, I presume, greatly reduced anxiety.
I’m a believer in the power of the plant, no doubt. And I will flat out say it: This Illinois medical cannabis is the best weed I ever have smoked in my life.
