Feel Good Fridays at Trenchtown are all about Giving Back.
Feeling good is strong belief held by the Trenchtown family. On Fridays, we “feel good” by partnering with a non-profit. We help spread awareness about a particular need in our society, balancing our growth and the world one Friday at a time.
For every purchase you make on Fridays, we will donate a portion of proceeds to charity. Check out some of the causes we support here!
This month we are highlighting PEACE AND HOPE FRONTIER, a non-profit group working in the Miskito region of Nicaragua. They provide sustainable resource development by drilling water wells and promoting health and hygiene education while remaining responsive to other community needs. Historically,they have implemented a wide array of development projects, such as the construction of rice mills, radio outposts and community infrastructure and provided humanitarian aid, including emergency disaster relief and mosquito net distribution. .

Specifically, Representative Polis wanted to know Mr. Holder’s position on the enforcement of federal MJ laws against MMJ caregivers. He asked if the feds would give deference to the Colorado definition of caregivers.
Mr. Holder noted that he was unfamiliar with Colorado law on the subject. He then stated that both the Ogden memo and the Cole memo are still in effect. He said that if people we
re not using the memos as an excuse to use marijuana in a way inconsistent with State law, then “we will not use our limited resources in that way.”
Representative Polis asked whether Colorado MMJ law provides more pro-tection against federal law for those involved with MMJ, then say the laws in Cali-fornia.
Attorney General Holder replied, “Where a State has taken a position, passed a law, and people are acting in conformity with the law, not abusing the law, … and again given our limited resources, that would not be an enforcement priority for the Justice Department.”
Finally, Representative Polis asked about enforcement against banks and bankers. Mr. Holder reiterated that if the banks were operating in conformity to State law, that would not be an enforcement priority.
Once again, it appears that the Colorado decision to regulate MMJ, though flawed, has saved the industry in Colorado. Perhaps everybody involved with MMJ can sleep a bit easier knowing the feds continue to not care about us.
Strain: Triple Sour Diesel | Dispensary: Trenchtown
Trenchtown dispensary recently launched, doing its best to transport us highlanders to the low-lying wellspring of Jamaican culture. And with the Wailers kicking off their latest tour just days ago in our neck of the woods, it seemed only appropriate to see if the local med selection lived up to the moniker. Our critics agreed: although we can’t issue a Jamaican Order of Merit, we certainly concede these growers deserve it.
They proved it with their exquisitely aromatic Triple Sour Diesel. Its combination of Sour and NYC Diesels produced the expected Diesel-heavy notes with a slight citrus-chem of OG Kush thrown in. The bud was bright green with thick calyxes and velvety, rosewood-colored pistils. Passionately grown, the selection had been admirably pushed to the end of its cycle, well-flushed, and cured. It was even sticky.
The first hit was strong and massively cerebral, powerful and focused. Although energizing, there was no disguising its effects. The body became vibrant. It was a little tougher to socialize, recall names or phone numbers. But we were light on the feet. It was just enough for day-to-day functionality.
Although 1 puff wasn’t the fun, impairing madness we were expecting, it was a true medical dose. Our limbs were numb; all but the worst of neck pains disappeared momentarily. Especially from the waist-down. We were satisfied with the overall problem-solving clarity and enjoyed a creative connection. The strain crept, but rapidly.
With a second dose came dumb mistakes, lost control, confusion and tremors. It was not for the faint-hearted. Emotional and psychedelic, we became terribly forgetful and made awful blunders. Great for crazy movies, you might even prefer grooved rifts from the stoniest of bands. We found ourselves listening to the Velvet Underground, Daft Punk and Röyksopp.
Over time, the narcotic body grew into a broad and lulling buzz. The whole TSD experience lasted a generous 3-4 hours, and was very unproductive by the end. A gamer or writer’s choice, it tended towards obsessive compulsive with prevalent munchies even by the first hour. Collectively, we were in the mood to listen and learn, just not to move.
Trenchtown’s Triple Sour Diesel is a magnificent inaugural release. If their future generations continue at this quality, we can’t wait to see them participate in upcoming cannabis cups.

Doctor’s Corner: One of the most effective, yet under-publicized, uses of medical marijuana is for patients with spinal cord injuries. These patients often suffer severe chronic pain and muscle spasms, along with paralysis of the legs or both legs and arms. Many find marijuana effectively relieves both spasticity and pain. They are commonly only prescribed large doses of opiates, tranquilizers, and other debilitating and dangerous drugs.
