Today is a very special review day cuz we’re adding a new category- psiloycybin! Now that Initiative 81 has passed (by an even wider margin than the bill that legalized cannabis, wow), some intrepid Initiative 71 brands are breakin’ out the magic mushrooms and your Gentleman is here for it. Let’s get to it, my stalwart goombas! DC’s best weed gifts await you…
Disclaimer! I can’t ensure any products are safe. What I do is judge quality. I think that means the same thing but can’t guarantee that it does. Ya dig? Then shovel up, baby! Here’s my latest recommendations:
One Up Chocolate Shroom Bars
The Gentleman has personally tested and approved these One Up Chocolate Bars for potency, courtesy of our friends at Exotic Blooms, The back of the package has a rough guide to dosing: 1-3 is Micro, 3-7 is Therapeutic, and 8-12 is Shamanic (twelve pieces per bar). The chocolate bar is quite tasty, by the by- no hint of fungus in its flavor or consistency.
I wasn’t really looking to get all Yellow Submarined, just wanted to give it a fair shake, so I went with 4 pieces. They kicked in quickly, about 35 minutes. As I came up, I realized I was closer to ballz-level tripping than intended, but it was manageable after I laid down in the dark for an hour, listened to some trance, and watch a series of non-sensical short films play out behind my eyelids. A pleasant, giggly mood remained behind for about four hours. Have fun storming the astral planes, my brave psychonauts!
All flowers were tested in OCB Unbleached Cones this week.
A delightful entry from Exotic Organics, this potent hybrid exhibits a sour nose with strong berry notes and an exceptionally smooth, flavorful smoke. You know how that YouTube chef has the Clean Plate Club? This Acai Gelato in the Gentleman’s Empty Bag Club. Still available but supplies are limited so act fast!
Another fantastic specimen from Exotic Blooms! This heavily psychoactive hybrid is suitable for diurnal activities, as Play Doh Cake imparts focus along with a strong mood enhancement. Expect a strong, classic skunk aroma with hints of sweetness and a rich, velvet-smooth smoke.
Sundae Sunset Sherbet
Notch another win on DC TeaPad‘s belt! Aesthetically masterful with its orange hairs, purple sugar leaves, and light green buds, DC TeaPad’s Sundae Sunset Sherbet has the bonafides to back it up. This indica makes for a smooth, tasty smoke, best enjoyed in the evening or before bed.
LAX by Lumpy Farms
A new entrant, Launchpad DC takes home an early W with their LAX from Lumpy Farms. This hybrid presents a distinct aroma of cool spices that reminds me of men’s cologne…is that…Coolwater? Ah, it takes one back, does it not? A smooth smoke with a calm, functional high, this one’s perfect for daytime use.
Gary Payton by Cookies
I’ve seen the Cookies brand Gary Payton around town for a while, but this batch from Royale Dankness is the freshest I’ve found. A light floral nose with a pleasant, easy smoke, this flower offers gentle relaxation, an even mood, and a quiet mind without fatigue. A perfect complement to your yoga or meditation or Zen archery practice or whatever. I’m not here to tell you not to shoot your bows blindfolded, I’m not your mother.

This week we’re approving one new edible for potency:
Baked DC THC Drops
Very impressed with the THC Drops from Baked DC. This 1000mg tincture is clear & flavorless, which makes them perfect to add to any drink for a long-lasting, slow-building edible buzz. They also have no burn whatsoever, so you can easily take it sublingually for faster, more potent effect, which is how I tested it.
The dropper comes with helpful measurements for dosing and the bottle explains 1 dropper= 50mg. I took two droppers under the tongue for ~100mg. The effects came on strong fifteen minutes later and lasted for two hours. It was a bit of a rollercoaster- a pleasant mood boost and a nascent sensation of excitement as the thoughts bounced around my brain like tiny balls of Flubber. Didn’t make me sleepy. Highly recommended!
