In Oregon, when spring has officially arrived and the cherry blossoms begin to bloom, the season’s newest cannabis products also begin arriving on dispensary shelves just in time to be enjoyed while gazing at a double rainbow.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a mellow flower puffer, more of a sativa party type, or a cannathusiast who indulges in all kinds of products, there are several fresh cultivars that should be of interest to everyone this year.
