Although I don’t live in Florida any longer, I like to visit in the late spring season from time to time to enjoy the beaches.
Since the state doesn’t have reciprocity for out-of-state medical cannabis users, I can’t shop at their weed stores unless I get a Florida medical marijuana card.
Back home we now have legal recreational cannabis so it’s frustrating when I want to enjoy Florida’s beaches but know that I can’t legally buy cannabis while I’m there. Florida has quite the history when it comes to cannabis. For one, it was known as the mecca for indoor cannabis from coast to coast for decades. The techniques used to make hydroponic cannabis indoors were perfected in Florida. On top of that, some of the most mythical cannabis strains potentially have their origins in the sunshine state. The man behind OG Kush and Bubba Kush was a Florida cannabis grower before he took his genetics and moved out to California in the 1980s or 1990s. Since a lot of this information is akin to legends, it’s hard to say for sure 100% where genetics originated and how long ago. There are other strains like Blueberry that date back further into the 1970s. OG Kush is still really popular on top of its use as a parent strain in a number of various popular hybrid strain creations. For instance, the widely popular Girl Scout Cookies strain was developed through a cross between OG Kush and the African sativa Durban Poison. Headband is made from OG Kush and the popular sativa Sour Diesel. OG Kush has quite the history in the cannabis industry; without it, the world of cannabis wouldn’t be the same.
