All that plus Grandma's undefeated weed-detecting radar, how the search for kind bud created a cultural movement in Holland, why catchy strain names do historians no favors, punk rock culture vs. deadhead culture, the difference between each historic Headband cut, smoking Big Sur Holy, the origin story of Durban Poison + C99 + Blue Dream and why bagseed runs the game,  a rousing round of the rename game featuring Puck/Skelly and Dog Shit/Electric Bugaloo, Notsodog Headband's relationship to Mean Gene's world famous Root Beer + why CSI: Humboldt is breeding with it, the excitement of Breeders Syndicate getting started with platforms like Twitch + YouTube, why Speakeasy is the real MVP, and so much more!
