You guys know the drill by now. We provide our intensely trained and heavily experienced in-house strain reviewer, The Chronisseur, with samples from around the county. He carefully examines and tests each one and passes on his expert opinion to NUG readers. Because of recent politically motivated and...

We had The Chronisseur put in some overtime this month with six strains to sample and review. What better way to kick off the New Year than with half a dozen of the most pristine nugs Hopper has seen all year, which was grown and provided by San Diego’s finest green thumbs. Romberry: (G-Dub) “Wow!...

As a dark cloud of injustice shrouded our fine city, and our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness were being spat upon by our government, I sat down with The Chronisseur to exercise the one right that we can always count on: Free Speech. But little did I know that the very next day,...

By: Pamela Jayne | Photos By: Phil Calvin for SCR Photo Hopper’s workload was a little heavier this month as we had five strains for him to sample. I thought he was happy the first time we gave him four strains to review, but it’s true, the quickest way to The Chronisseur’s heart...

Although we usually feature strains from various collectives around the city and county, this month we decided to go straight to the source – the growers of San Diego who put their green thumbs to work to keep collectives stocked and patients supplied with the medicine they need. While anyone...

Three OG’s, a Sour D, and the news that the San Diego City Council was forced to repeal their unfair de facto ban on medical cannabis collectives made for one very happy Chronisseur this month. This was one of our most enjoyable sessions yet… H3C Marilyn OG: (HCCC) “Nice nug. Very...

Because we had four different OG strains for The Chronisseur to review this month, we started by asking him about the origins of the most famous name in the world of cannabis. “First of all, OG stands for Ocean Grown, not ‘original’ or ‘original gangster’ like a lot of...

For the first time in 14 months, a bittersweet air clouded the ordinarily light-hearted atmosphere of the Chronisseur session. It was not because of the strains or the company; both are among the best San Diego has to offer. It was the bitter disappointment over the recent city council ruling that cast...

This month marks the 13th installment of The Chronisseur, but there is absolutely nothing unlucky about it. Just as Hopper was opening this month’s bag of goodies and noticed that there were only two strains to be reviewed, a buddy from the Slightly Stoopid crew stopped by and threw in a third...

Of course, he had no problem clearing his schedule to make time to fulfill his duties as our resident Chronisseur. Let the sampling...

Five strains, five days, and five full sessions made for one very happy Chronisseur this month. As expected, Hopper dove into his workload lungs first…and as usual, he had plenty to say about it. G-13: (Coastal Green Collective) “This is one beautiful nug. From the green coloring to its...

Purple Bubba Kush: (Fresh Selection) “This bud looks simply stellar, like it was rolled in sugar. The trichomes are glistening and it has beautiful purpling. Someone knew what they were doing when they grew this one. Judging by the appearance and aroma, it seems to be a Pre-98 Bubba Kush, but...

For this issue, we decided to spread some holiday cheer and give our Chronisseur an early Christmas treat by adding an extra sample to his bag of goodies. Among this month’s submissions were: Godzukie, New York Sour Diesel, Fire Purps, and Pineapple. Of course, we weren’t at all surprised...

Halloween came early for Hopper this year when NUG Magazine dropped off this month’s strains to be reviewed. Inside the goody bag was Platinum Bubba, L.A. Woman, and OG D-Cup. It was the perfect cornucopia of cannabis for our very own Chronisseur! Platinum Bubba: (Fire Station) “When it...

We’ve had a lot of fun doing “The Chronisseur” these past six months, but this one is the most important yet. Just think, the three strains Hopper reviewed could be legalized and available to all adults in California in less than two months. The end of prohibition is within reach,...

You know you’ve got a good gig when being given less to do is disappointing. It has been such a busy month around here, that’s why we’re only reviewing two strains in this issue. I broke the news to Hopper that he had one less sample to judge, and he took it pretty well. Although...

While most San Diegans were boiling in the heat, Hopper and I hunkered down in the A/C and blazed on some Electric Purple, Mendo Bubba, and Sweet Williams, which led to a long discussion about the importance of voting this November. Just another day in the life of The Chronisseur… ELECTRIC PURPLE...
