Spring/Summer, 2023

Price: $55/eighth

Curio is one of the biggest cannabis producers in Maryland, but I was surprised to see that the buds looked vibrant, trichome-wet, and pungent. Blissful Wizard is a solid addition to the Cookies strain family: Captain’s Cookies x GSC genetics with the same chunky structure and colorful veins. An excellent summertime companion when maxing and relaxing. I wouldn’t advise anything too complicated or that requires strong coordination with Blissful Wizard—it’s a stony one, though some funny conversations are sure to be had. The cultivar had a strong caryophyllene-led nose of creamy gas on the dry pull and inhale, and a slight vanilla, citric sweetness. Hand-trimmed and buds still sticky, mixed sizes.
