Rarely have I come across an Oklahoma cannabis strain so outstanding I wanted to buy a second ounce. But recently I ventured out of my comfort zone and tried Fruity Pebbles OG — a 1:1 CBD to THC ratio strain — which I read might be good for my epilepsy symptoms. It has earned a coveted spot on my favorite strains list…but not for the reasons I expected!
Meet FPOG (f/k/a Fruity Pebbles OG)
My budtender’s eyes lit up when he pulled the metal cauldron up from behind the counter. I had asked if he had any flower with a 1:1 CBD: THC ratio. His eyes lit up further, when I said I’d take an ounce of the Fruity Pebbles. People find a new budtender if they don’t enjoy weighing out an ounce of marijuana. Despite being a steal of a deal, the flower is covered in trichomes. Within minutes of my first inhale, the effects begin to hit hard. My lids begin to droop, and the feel-good feelings begin to creep in. I see what the 1:1 hype is all about, I thought to myself.
One of my favorite qualities of Fruity Pebbles is that it makes me laugh like a child, which is really fucking great because being an adult is hard. It cheers me up and makes me a happier person to be around. It surely helped my holiday blues. Does everybody remember this scene from That 70’s Show?
Well, something similar happened to me, when I smoked FPOG for the first time:
It’s Christmas Day, and we are having dinner with my husband’s family. I am sitting across from his mom, aunt and grandma. Suddenly, these lovely women just seem insanely cartoonish, and I get the wildest case of the giggles for no reason at all (this strain just makes everything funny). The cartoon funny fades after 20-30 minutes, and a peaceful happiness settles over me. I enjoy this aspect of FPOG immensely!
FPOG is Best For:
Laughter. Who doesn’t need more of this? Count on a solid half hour of it.
Mood. I take a few tokes, and my wild mood swings disappear, leaving me feeling happy, content and peaceful. Good thing only one woman lives in my home.
Fatigue. I’m always looking for a strain to fight my fatigue…maybe even keep my ass awake past 9 p.m. FPOG delivers steady energy throughout the day instead of bursts. I’ve managed to see double digit bedtimes several times in the past month and even attended several evening social outings — something especially difficult for people who have chronic fatigue.
Pain. Old Man Winter (anything below 50-degrees is cold to me) and Old Man Arthritis are friends with pain. Fruity Pebbles doesn’t totally knock out my pain (there are only so many ailments one strain can be expected to handle!), but it does make me care less that I am in pain. The CBD component actually seems to be helping my joints some. My knees especially. They seemed less likely to pop off my body when I squatted down today which is a major plus.
