Strain: Blue Cookies - Indica
Producer: Kush Town
Contributor: Michael Avalos
Blue Cookies (Indica) - $15/g, $45/4g
This one called to us from the Private Reserve shelf. We love the earthy green leaves accented with orange and blue-purple spots. There’s a healthy amount of crystal coverage on the surface that doesn’t call much attention to itself, until you get a closer look. This bud might not sparkle, but it certainly does shine.
This Indica carries a very strong aroma that quickly fills up the room. It’s a true potpourri of flavors -- earthy, sweet, floral, and big.
The flavor profile adequately matched the scent of this bud. There was a tremendous amount of sweetness to be enjoyed, with a slight lingering earthy aftertaste. All in all, it was a pretty tasty strain, in our opinion.
These cookies brought on a nice, calming high. We definitely felt like we were sitting in an Indica-induced haze for a while, but there was no tunnel vision or time travel. We were fully-functional and ready to have fun.
Overall, we’d say this is an Indica that falls on the lighter side of the spectrum. You’ll feel the buzz, but you won’t get lost in it. If anything, this high-functioning strain might be great for smokers that are seeking cures for anxiety and other ailments. It delivers a great feeling of calm that made us feel centered, without stealing our attention span.
Long story short -- Blue Cookies is not your typical Indica strain. You won’t find yourself “in-da-couch” with this guy. It’s got a nice, mild effect that brings out the best of the bud, without a wandering attention span. If you’re looking to chill out, these cookies will be your best friend.
Kush Town is an odd duck. Upon first glance, this shop looks like a hole-in-the-wall with lots of extra security. But you can’t judge a book by its cover, because this is also the home to some really great weed. Plus, there’s a lot of other awesome products. Our budtender was amazing, gracious, and provided us with a first-class shopping experience. If you can forgive the rough edges, you’ll realize that this is one of the coolest little shops in the city.

If you ever find yourself near the corner of Normandie and 8th St, you’ll be in the heart of Los Angeles’ Koreatown neighborhood. It’s a vibrant, funky part of town that’s on its way to becoming a gentrified gem, and it boasts some great Korean BBQ, one of the best steakhouses in the city, and a couple of awesome dispensaries. But the number one name on the block has got to be, Kush Town.
Make sure you know the address before you go, because this shop lacks any signage on it’s painted black storefront. A simple white button on the doorframe is how you get buzzed in. You’ll enter the waiting room, also painted black, and slide your ID to a man behind glass, through a slot in the wall.
We must admit, this wasn’t giving us the best first impression. As we headed into the showroom, through a short two-door hallway with security cameras, we were nervous about what was waiting for us on the other side. Luckily, we were about to be pleasantly surprised.
Inside, the showroom is painted green, with two glass display cases on either side as you enter. When we arrived, there was one budtender on the clock, and they were handing another customer their change.
That gave us a moment to browse over their selection. We liked what we saw, but were a little disappointed by the presentation. There’s some really great products here, to be honest. We saw a lot of homemade wax, vape concentrates, edibles, and pre-rolls for the offering. The problem is that the display cases felt too big for the products. It was like there wasn’t enough stuff to fill out the case. Even at this point, we wondered what kind of hole in the wall shop we had wandered into. But the bud we walked out of there with made our trip more than worthwhile.
