strawberry mochi strain
strawberry mochi strain Like I said, one dab and I got to a 9. All I can say is that I hope you try this strain out for yourself, you really won’t regret it. Not as good as a high as I was hoping

Combine that high quality with the hassle of importing it all the way from the US, and the cost starts to make a little more sense: low supply and high demand equals pricey product. Still, says a member of the London Cannabis Club, “however good it is, that’s just too expensive – £30 a gram was unheard of before. There are great flowers from Spain for much cheaper, or, even better, growers here in the UK who are growing proper strains in the proper way. If it’s good weed, sometimes they just say it’s from US to sell it at a higher price. US weed has become a brand.”
In their marketing campaigns, these brands offer reliability and consistency. And they’re not lying: when buying name brand weed, you’re more or less guaranteed to get the same thing the next time you buy it. The same can’t be said for the scattershot you get off British street dealers. Top top things off, the fact you get this weed in a fancy branded baggie or jar – as opposed to an old bit of cling-film – surely can’t hurt either.
Essentially, Collado’s weed compared to your average street dealer stuff is like the difference between a 50p pack of peppers at Tesco and single, organic £1.50 pepper from Waitrose. But, just like the price discrepancy between those peppers, is the going rate for this imported weed really justified? I called some cannabis dispensaries in California and Colorado to find out why people are paying way above market rate for this supposedly superior weed.
Dump this on top of the illegal cannabis markets of places like the UK – where relatively poor-quality weed is on offer from street dealers – and you create a global demand for products that are illegal in many of the places they’re most sought after.
In the UK, the average ounce of weed will set you back about £200. Unless you have a mate’s rates thing going on with the grower, that is, or – conversely – you buy your weed off someone who very regularly fucks you over. But even if your dealer is the most unscrupulous of pisstakers, it’s unlikely they’ll be charging you upwards of £250 an ounce.
This wouldn’t go down too well with someone like MC Berner, an entrepreneur and rapper who has established a successful accessory, clothes and cannabis brand called “Cookies Co”. Berner has worked with expert growers in the hills of California to produce strains – such as “Girl Scout Cookies” – which could be some of the most sought-after in the world. “Where can I get some cookies?” – or something along those lines – is a sentence that plagues the cannabis community’s online forums and comment sections.
The legalisation and, more importantly, commercialisation of cannabis markets in the US has spawned cannabis-producing brands whose products can only be bought in states where weed is legal. However, with the marketing of these brands living partly online, cannabis users all over the world have become aware of them, spawning international followings for these must-have “artisanal” products.

Collado got some of his weed out. It was certainly more pungent and fresh-smelling than the average 20-bag of haze.
Investigating the imported American weed that’s going for up to £700 an ounce – or over three times what you’d usually spend in the UK.
