John’s Pick: Snoop’s Dream
A Throwback that’s Sure to Throw You Back
Flavor/Scent: Sweet blueberry flavors with a pine aftertaste.
Lineage: Blue Dream x Master Kush
My Take: When life starts moving too fast, Snoop’s Dream puts it all back on track with an aroma and taste that’s sure to take you back to the first time you got your hands on some high quality cannabis. This plant is the Big Dogg on the grow boasting a tall Sativa figure that produces dark green bud structures with bright orange hairs. Snoop’s Dream is my go-to when setting the tone for a relaxing evening free of pain and stress. For me, as a patient, this strain helps me maintain a positive mood that translates to an all around better sense of well-being. And for the smoker in me, Snoop’s Dream takes me back to when I got my first sack of chronic.

An interview with extractor Alejandro Garcia
By Joshua Lee
Everest Apothecary invited us to tour their grow operation recently. As we waited for the head grower to prepare the way, we took the opportunity to sit down with the dispensary’s extractor Alejandro Garcia and pick his brain about concentrates.
Weekly Alibi: Something I’ve always wondered—does it really matter if a concentrate comes from a sativa- or indica-dominant plant? THC is THC right?
Alejandro Garcia: Whenever you extract from a plant, common belief may lead you to think that you lose some of the aesthetics of what make a plant an indica or a sativa. In some ways, that’s an accurate statement, but it also isn’t. When it comes to distillation, you can actually isolate what you want to extract. So you can isolate the terpenes and the cannabinoids that the specific plant has when it’s fresh. You are then able to reintroduce those terpenes and cannabinoids at the end, after you’ve isolated the THC or CBD. And then you can mix it at the ratio which will allow you to sell it at the state’s 70 percent THC limit.
