Cannabis Reviews & Commentary From The Guru

My name is Jason Grass (a.k.a. Big J!) After suffering for years from pain, due to back/neck injuries/surgery, I found medical cannabis more effective than doctor's pills! So, I quit my career of 26 years and started as a budtender @ Curio Wellness early 2018 and now I work for ForwardGro.

I thoroughly enjoy helping/teaching others on the how too's of treating themselves with medical cannabis

I teach a lot different ways to use cannabis; however, I encourage others, like myself, to use their cannabis with dry herb vapes (Pax2, Pax3, Volcano). 


Also, teaching others the art of infusing whole plant cannabis into coconut oil is a true passion of mine. I teach classes on how to... Connect with Big J to see the times!


  • Cannabis is teaching me to enjoy my family and life again! 


Hey hey from Big J smoke of the day! Summertime in the cannabis world equals fun times, outdoor #SunGrownCannabis is still in full flowering bloom, and the Medical Cannabis Connoisseur's are excited for #Corptober!

Time for the 10x loope to send my visual curiosity down the limey green foliage. The lovely dancing mushroom capped trichomes scream to be vaped! Preparing this bud allows me to almost see the stinky terpiene funk lifting off the ground bud, there's nothing more exciting! 


Danky sweet candy flavors of mellow mellon delight, rolls though my noggin gently, and melts away my morning dew with #MemoryLoss' funkyness. A country sweet spice tea stank, lingers off these freshly trimmed bud's, and brings my senses' to the never ending road of rediclous relaxation. 


Deep excitement hits, as my Pax3 produces thick vapor that covers me in Mother Nature's super strong Kushy flavors! Without love in the session, memory is lost 100%.  #MemoryLoss uplifts me with a wonderful europhic stress reliever, as I feel help is always on the way from the first draw!

"I find a fun sticky kiefy mess dropping out of the chamber..."

Hey hey from Big J smoke of the day! Finding an art, within trimming fine medical cannabis, over the past few weeks has been truly remarkable for me. Another slamming beautifully trimmed bud by Maryland based grower, @Forwardgro, has produced for the community #PhantomCookies #5. 


Coming in at 22.2% THCa and having a funky stench, this fresh bud sends me down the delightfulness trail, finding for excitement!


This is one very tight sugared up lime greeny bud, that is smacking my eye with mushroom capped trichomes under the loope. This fantastically trimmed bud is covered completely with heavy amber rosin up tips, that work me into joy!

Popping the nug into my grinder, I find a fun sticky kiefy mess dropping out of the chamber. A familiar, but very distance, tasty sweet Country Muskydine grape earthy dankiness, pours out of the grinder, covering my fingers in all this bud's wonderful stank; all the while, Phantom Cookies #5 fills the air with its cannabis funk, and my taste senses are tickled with a sweet wild-berry gassy bubblegum flavor, that scream Vape me!


Striking with pulsating crazy euphoria, for me Phantom Cookies #5 massages my stoney head between the eye's, and uplifts the brain with a fantastic buzzy sensation! Bringing my heavily inflamed muscle pain to a stand still, the head warms with peaceful thoughts of not giving a care in the world. As my inhibition are ripped off, my focus turns to laughing with creative thoughts. With a strong onset, this Sativa leaning flower helps me discover a sharp, and very creative mouth.  


Almost instantly, this bud destroys my darkness and replaces it with a wickedly comfortable feeling of calm. Late into my session, the GDP x Cherry Pie cross flower, sends pleasurable affects within the body that seem never ending! 


The amplified excitement of this bud lingers me deep into childhood smells and fun times without worries. Phantom Cookies has put this Maryland Cannabis Connoisseur well into discoverable mode of more Cookies!


Hey hey from Big J smoke of the day! The cannabis world has some strains with "Old School" lineage. Bringing joy to the always extremely bored head, @Grassroots_md has grown this holy wow batch of #durbanpoison that I hope will hold true to its name!


The space train under the 10x loope shows off these rich amber rosin balls and a super intensely saturated orangey green foliage that bleeds into purple overtoned tips. My eyes start to water as these puffy Summer time buds pop out of the jar, and it's time to crush these bud!

Out of the Pax3 this heavy billowing vapor that lifts like clouds in the Summer heat! I'm drifted into a THC bath of #Durbinpoison, while the intense brain relief lifts my darkness away, and tosses me into massive dose of sunshine daydreams! Happily 


flying into creative euphoria, I find myself spinning into a mind focussing wave of pain forgetfullness.  #Durbanpoison is a landrace strain from South Africa that is currently leaving me spinning happily filled with Mother Nature's Cannabis nector!
