Strain: Dodger OG
Producer: Beverly Club
Contributor: Michael Avalos
While some might be thinking of Oliver Twist, we Angelenos are only going to think about our beloved baseball team. We had to pick up this tip-of-the-ballcap strain named after our local LA Dodgers, and while we were a little skeptical at first, we eventually discovered this ganja packs a home-run high.
Our first impression was that this was some middle-of-the-road flower.
It looks good, but nothing jumped out about its appearance. It’s got a smell that’s a little bit earthy and a little bit skunky. Nothing really wrong with that, but nothing demanded our attention, either.
When we smoked it, we tasted a strong flavor that was almost spicy. The feeling hits quickly, and had us going from zero-to-stoned within a few puffs. But after that, that’s kind of it. You just feel high, but in a bland, “generically high” way.
We’ll call it a “high school high,” partially because we’re Jon Lovitz fans, but mostly because it gave us nostalgia for the dirt weed days of our youth, when we had little time to complain about a strain’s taste. We just wanted to get stoned, and that’s what we did. And while there’s nothing wrong with nostalgia or getting lifted, we’d like to think we’ve grown up a little since then
Long story short -- you can’t argue with the results, but you may be a little underwhelmed by the experience. If you’re looking to get high, this is your bud. But if you want to do more than just “get stoned,” we recommend you try something else.

This dispensary reminds us of that old saying: blink and you’ll miss it!
The entrance is just a plain white door in the middle of some black wrought-iron window bars. While the anonymity might turn some off, we think it totally adds to the charm of this fully-stocked, one-stop shop that has some stereotypical West Coast flair.
Once you enter, the waiting room is as white as the front door. Don’t fret! Once it’s your turn to enter into the showroom (or the “No Phone Zone” as they call it), you’ll be surprised at how much product is waiting for you. When we visited the club, our budtender informed us that they had been open less than a month. That made sense why the wait was so short, but also underscores just how much this place is a diamond in the rough waiting to be discovered.
We browsed the selection while some Tupac played over the speakers. There’s a nice collection of plants here, all laid out in glass jars on the counter for easy viewing and sample sniffing. Our budtender was very helpful, and totally willing to show us anything we were interested in. We must admit, there were a lot of plants that caught our eye.
But what impressed us the most about this shop is the selection of everything else they carry. They’ve got it all. The walls are covered with tasty-looking gummy edibles in vacuum sealed pouches, not to mention some chewables, chocolate bars, and even lollipops in the display case.
For the vaping crowd, there was an extensive collection of concentrate oils to choose from with an impressive variety of flavors. Speaking of flavors, this shop also has an entire cooler fully-stocked with different cannabis-infused beverages for when you want to quench your thirst and calm your soul.
Finally, beyond all the goodies, there was a great collection of CBD oils and topical lotions. This really drove home the idea that this shop caters to any and all marijuana needs.
