Charlie Sheen–The Newest Name to Slap On Your Pounds.
When Kush became the bud of choice for the buyers of Humboldt County, a well respected grower said he takes whatever he has and tells the buyers its Kush. And, if they want Headband, well then, it’s Headband.
I wonder how often that happens. New “strains” (and I use that term in the non-scientific sense) appear for sale all the time with names designed to catch attention like God’s Pussy and Dog Shit. Some are legitimate new strains developed by growers who know their stuff. And some aren’t. Some are just pasted with whatever name will tickle the fancy of the buyers. And their names change with the drifting smoke of the day.
Today’s flavor of the week is …you guessed it…Charlie Sheen. Said to have a THC content of 23%, it appears to have garnered its appellation after its name sake started spinning wildly out of control in front of millions of gape-mouthed celebrity watchers. The flesh and tiger blood version said, “I am on a drug! It’s called CHARLIE SHEEN.” Now, smokers everywhere apparently want to experience the same dubious delirium and, unsurprisingly, somebody’s willing to sell it to them.
Can’t sell your pounds? Maybe you need a catchy name. Jen Ani-stone, S-mel Gibson, or just wait until the next celebrity makes an idiot of themselves publicly (you won’t have to wait too long) and slap his name on your buds. Until then, maybe just try slapping Charlie’s name on your stuff, and maybe no one will know the difference.
