Weed Review: Afgooey

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

We bought this from a dude sitting on a bean bag chair watching a plasma. Afgooey is a well known strain that has been circulated in Los Angeles for years and can be found with regularity at many dudes living rooms and medical clinics.

Pre-Smoke Examination:
The nugs are small, no larger than a Nickel in circumference, are extremely dense. It smells pungent like a Christmas tree in a freshly painted room, and when squeezed you can tell that the nugs are fresh. There isn't a lot of leaf, showing that the buds were carefully manicured.

Post-Smoke Examination:
It's hard to break it up by hand, and hard to prepare it with a grinding tool. It's so sticky and dense that it just gums up the works. Once you're smoking it, the weed burns on the slow side, and you may need to or three hits to clear the bowl. The taste is of the "deep forest" variety, and has a a high that can knock you on your ass for hours.

The high feels like your skull is being palmed by Shaquille Oneil, and it lasts a good 4 hours. The weed lives up to the "gooey" part of its name as its so dense and sticky that it gooey-ified my grinder, and gummed up my scissors. At $60 an 8th its well worth the cost, and sure to keep your head in the clouds.

Look for Afgooey in your local pot guy's living room.
