By asking our guests to smoke their strain of choice, we ensure that family feeling (also, props to you if you smoke with your family. Seriously, if you smoke with your parents, thank them for being so chill). Introduction On this episode of ‘One Strain At A Time’ our amazing host and guest will be talking about Cereal Milk, a relaxing hybrid strain with a super-strong THC potency. (Fun fact: it’s one of this writer’s favorite strains). Kara and Amber will discuss their experiences with budtenders, the strain itself, and other fun stories about one of their favorite pastimes--smoking weed. So sit back, relax, and feel free to light up! Our Awesome Host Kara Michelle is not only an amazing host, but she’s also a testament to how transformative and powerful cannabis can be. She openly used it to help cope with symptoms of anxiety and depression, and her mission is to learn not only what budtenders can do for you, but how the cannabis industry is blossoming. She primarily focuses on San Francisco’s Bay Area, a region filled with amazing, food, drink, and weed. Our Amazing Guest Amber Serna is someone you could easily refer to as a certified cannabis connoisseur. She worked throughout the pandemic as the budtender and keyholder of Body and Mind in Long Beach, California. She takes extra care with her customers, finding them the perfect product nearly every time by getting to know them and what they need. For example, she recommends CBN to those suffering from insomnia, even though it’s a lesser-known product. Talk about a budtender who knows her weed! She even won a Budtender Award, a testament to her outstanding work. We’re so excited to have her here on OSAAT to share her knowledge!

Seriously, if you smoke with your parents, thank them for being so chill). Lemon Bean Cannabis On this episode of ‘One Strain at a Time’ our host and guest will be discussing Lemon Bean cannabis, which is a sativa strain that can boost your energy, mood, and appetite. Complete with funny anecdotes, educational micro-facts, and a live smoke session, this episode brings all the knowledge of the classroom and all the fun of smoking with your friends. Let’s meet our fantastic host and guest for this episode! Lemon Bean is a wonderfully aromatic, citrus-y strain of cannabis that Kelly loves, especially from her trusty producer Cresco. Cresco even has a S.E.E.D. program, which stands for ‘social equity & education development’ to diversify the cannabis industry and invest in minority growers. Kelly says that in her home state of Arizona, unfortunately the packaging on the majority of recreational products is pretty unsightly since Arizona just voted to legalize recreational weed in November of 2020, but there are some catches. You still can’t smoke in public (or drive under the influence) but medical users can now consume cannabis in edible form in public. This is a huge win for those who rely on marijuana for everyday life (and a big win for recreational smokers, too). Despite its newness in Arizona, Cresco’s Lemon Bean comes in a beautiful glass package that comes with information about the terpenes on the inside of the label. She says that Arizona dispensaries are slowly making the transition to more aesthetic packaging and informational labels, including info about terpenes. Lemon Bean, like I said, has a very citrus-y scent to it, almost like “a lemonhead candy.” Kelly’s partner compared it to lemon frosting--yum! If you’d like to know more about the specific terpenes, check out this comprehensive strain analysis. Lemon Bean also can help with appetite stimulation and general mood elevation. You’ll be enjoying a nice happy high--I suggest ordering a pizza when you smoke it. It’s not too pricey, either. Taxes on Arizonian weed are really high, so Lemon Bean in Kelly’s area is fairly priced to accommodate for that. Kelly also makes sure to grind her flower before smoking it to release more of those citrus terpenes, and her favorite way to smoke is with a bong. And her #1 piece of advice to cannabis consumers is “THC percentage is not everything.” Terpenes matter a lot and can help you achieve the exact high you want. She compares it to wine--you don’t buy wine simply for its’ strength, but also flavor, feel, and smell. And Elizabeth agrees!
