RE:STASH has come up with an ingenious solution: a sustainable, Consumer Product Safety Commission-compliant exit strategy. Read the…

DESSERT LOVER’S DREAM: Expertly Cultivated Mochi

This Mochi pheno, bred and selected and certified by Sherbinski himself, combines its parents’ best traits: cooling exhale from the Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies, and out of this world bag appeal from the Sunset Sherbet. The aroma is top tier, dessert strain sweetness. Pungent, the resinous flower leaves a doughy, vanilla cupcake scent on everything it touches. A frosting, sweet berry aroma hangs in the background while a subtle basil note reinforces the floral accents. The effect gave me a calm but active mind, perfect for daydreaming or relaxed…
