University of Mississippi, Federally Funded Marijuana Farm

May 11th, 2010 Dr. Skunky

Did you know that since 1968 the United States has has a federally funded medical marijuana farm and production facility?  The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) contracts with the university the production of the cannabis for the use in approved research studies.  NIDA also manages the distribution of cannabis to the seven surviving medical patients grandfathered into the Compassionate Investigational New Drug program (established in 1978 and canceled in 1991).

Numerous types and strains of marijuana are grown in [the University’s] large indoor facility. The pot is grown, harvested, dried and broken up, at which point it is used to fill cigarettes or joints, which are distributed to the patients…The federal government, as it has ruthlessly at times gone after dispensaries that are legally operated under state law, has had, all of this time, millions and millions of dollars’ worth of marijuana growing and stored at the University of Old [sic] Miss’.

“Releases a smell like a case of ripe fruit”

Faint yet distinguishable sweet smell of tangerine. No skunky marijuana like smell from this strain!

Taste: 8.0
After inhaling my first hit I noticed my mouth watering, wanting more Tangeringe Haze! The taste dosnt stick to your mouth but leaves a clear refreshing feeling like a breath mint.

High: 8.5
Strong medicinal effects felt throughout the body and mind. Very quick onset. Versatile high, could be used throughout the day or night.
Value: 8.0
Very exotic strain with quality medicinal effects. Fun smell and taste make this a real crowd pleaser and a hard to turn down buy.

Additional Information
The G-13 Haze x new York City Diesel is one of several G-13 crosses that Soma has developed from his signature strains. This pleasure pot has an exotic combination that evokes the aroma of old-school Thai-stick and the red grapefruit taste of the NYC Diesel.

This strain is an indoor plant in most locales, and is only suitable outdoors in tropical settings. The G-13 Haze x NYC Diesel is happy in soil or a hydroponics setup, as long as it is allowed to branch out. It does especially well when super-cropped, producing plump, fairly dense flowers at close internodes. The main stalk is very strong and sturdy. Until the last three weeks, this plant stays green, but in the last phases of flowering, it may acquire a lavender hue on the bud and foliage.

The high from G-13 haze x NYC Diesel is truly joyous. Its mood elevating qualities often creep up, shifting perspective to clear, light and happy thoughs. It encourages a sense of connectedness and may send the smoker on a hugging binge, or at least a sweet and gentle attitude toward friends and the world at large. Best indulged when one’s environmentsupports a loving demeanor, this strain is also potentially helpful for depression. The smell and taste have retained grapefruit tones from the Diesel, but the uniquely Haze aroma comes through in the smoke. Opening a container of cured buds releases a smell like a case of ripe fruit.
