Verano is the hottest name on the Maryland medical marijuana market right now. The dispensaries I've talked to all run out of any Verano flowers in a hurry, but I swung by Herbology in Gaithersburg on 4/20 and managed to get my hands on some Swift Lifts. This 5 pack of half-gram joints (in a very attractive and useful tin) cost $40, so eight bucks for each jay of their G6/Jet Fuel strain. I'll do a full write-up of Verano when I get full flowers in- ZenLeaf's two locations in Waldorf and Jessup are good bets, since they're vertically integrated with Verano (that is, they're owned by the same organization), but I do have some quick thoughts about the Swift Lifts I got:
- absolutely ground from flower. I could tell that from the smooth smoke and slow burn already, but I went ahead and cut one up so you could see the tiny, even...uh, particles...that you get from ground flower, unlike the uneven, jagged chunks from shake. I swear, the sacrifices I make for you, and do you even appreciate it? No, you just come home and turn on your hockey sports with barely a word to me. Or the children! Do you even love us, Howard?
- the scent is off. We definitely got a case of sweaty feet up in the G6. You'd know all about that, wouldn't you? It's like living with a...with a...Neanderthal! Howard? Are you even listening to me?
- I was pleasantly surprised that the flavor and smoke is not off. Usually, when the smell is off, you'll find a harsh or acrid smoke, but that's not the case here. Absolutely delightful. Just like that handsome young vacuum salesman who dropped by today. Hmm...
- Excellent medical benefits. Immediately took the edge off after a long day of navigating unfamiliar terrain, traffic, and queues without slowing me down, so I could still get work done. Oh, don't you dare laugh! I raise your children, I cook your meals, I wash your rotten drawers! Speaking of stains, Howard...I need a new vacuum. No, I'll take care of it. How would you even know what I need? pours wine
