I was at a yard sale at my buddy’s house that later turned into a raging party when I popped open the shiny plastic bag of Forbidden Fruit I’d bought from Medithrive on Mission Street the day before. It stunk like a juicy stick of gum, and when I took it out in the sunshine to show it off to a friend, we were both taken aback by its purple hue, mottled with green and orange fibers.
Basically, Forbidden Fruit is the kind of weed you can bust out at your friend’s house, say, “Hey let’s smoke this crazy-good weed,” and have it live up to the hype. It’s an indica-dominant hybrid that’s a 70-30 cross of Cherry Pie and Tangie, and the buzz is mostly what you’d expect from such a mix — a good, euphoric body high that doesn’t leave you glued to the couch. We smoked the hell out of it, and nobody went slinking off to watch Rick and Morty, so that’s always a good sign.
And while the effects are fantastic, the real belle of the ball might be the smell. I feel like I get high just from a whiff of its fruity aroma. I feel like I want to eat the nugs instead of smoking them. I could honestly put a gram in a painter’s respirator and just breathe in the goodness all day.
Next time you get a chance, do yourself a favor and pick up some Forbidden Fruit. If this stuff had been in the Garden of Eden, Eve would have just kept it for herself.
