Comic Con 2022 returns to San Diego this month celebrating all of our favorite superhero characters from comic books and films. Some superheroes are adventurers who explore the realms of science fiction, standing against evil or fighting crime in major metropolises. Other characters add joy to our lives by being a simple superhero and entertaining us on our favorite newspaper comic strip.
Think of your favorite superhero. Now think of your favorite superhero on weed! What strain of cannabis does Chris Hemsworth utilize to match the thunderous power of Thor? Which sativa strains do Tom Holland and Toby Maguire remind you of when they are playing the role of your friendly neighborhood Spider Man?
Join us as we take a look at six strains that match with your favorite superheroes.
Hailing from the Marvel Universe, Black Widow (aka Natasha Romanoff) is a master in the arts of espionage, martial arts, combat and weaponry. Raised as a master assassin in the Soviet Union, Black Widow eventually defected to the United States. Her expertise was coveted. Nick Fury had to make her a part of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division), a longtime ally of The Avengers.
Her mastery of infiltration and subterfuge are backed by her superhuman agility and athletic ability. Her whole life has chiseled her into a force to be respected and reckoned with. Watching Scarlett Johansson's portrayal of Black Widow or diving into the comic book lore is always an adventure in espionage and gunfire.
If God had a son, we’re pretty sure he’d look like Chris Hemsworth. Thor, God of Thunder, is the son of Odin. As a god, he has superhuman agility, durability, and immunity to diseases, as well as speed, strength, and divine intervention. With these powers, he watches over and protects his home realm of Asgard and his newly adopted planet Earth.
He wields an enchanted hammer forged with Uru metal by Mjolnir that can control storms and project energy blasts of anti-force. He is the protector of planets. In The Avengers: End Game, he fattened up and became a superhero version of Lebowski from the Cohen Brothers' film Big Lebowski. Underneath it all, Thor is just like us.
To feel the true power of an interplanetary god, we suggest the lung expansive Titan OG Private Reserve from Northern Emeralds. This cultivar is one of the best OG's we carry, high in myrcene, linalool and limonene. Titan OG Private Reserve has the lung expansive, sweet and piney exhale we all expect from a kush.
If you want to yield your own hammer, check out our selection of GRAV Hammer Bubblers. Their glass Hammer bubblers are designed so that it rests easy when not in use and a fission downstem diffuses smoke through water for cooling.
Water filtration is a smoother way to experience the flower you are smoking. Once you grab your Grav Hammer Bubbler of choice, load up some top shelf flower like what Cannabiotix brings to the table.
Peter Parker was a mild mannered student photographer for the Daily Bugle who was bitten by a radioactive spider. Depending on which comic book, film or cartoon you refer to, the origins of the spider varies.
In one timeline, the spider was a Steatoba nobilis. In another, it was a false widow or a Spider named George. These various timelines tend to overlap between the stories.
The results of this bite remained the same unilaterally across timelines. It gave Spider Man superhuman durability, speed, strength, and reflexes. Spider Man has a precognitive internal alert called Spider Sense and wall crawling abilities.
Varying timelines also changes how he shoots his webs. One Spidey shoots his webs directly from holes in his wrists, while the others primarily use a self constructed web blaster.
For a classic Spider Man adventure, Super Silver Haze from Cannabiotix will have you dancing like Toby Maguire. If you are looking for more of a modern Tom Holland feel to your cannabis, try the Double Trouble by Grizzly Peak Farms.
Superman was an orphan, raised as Clark Kent by his parents Jonathan and Martha. As he grew up in the quaint little town of Smallville, he eventually discovered his parents weren't his biological parents.
Superman was an alien. He was the son of Jor-L and Lara from the planet Krypton. His alien DNA within the atmosphere of Earth gives him superpowers. He has ice cold breath, enhanced hearing, heat vision, the power of flight, eye lasers, superhuman strength, super speed, x-ray vision, and nigh-invulnerability.
Seemingly all-powerful, the Man of Steel does have weaknesses. Aside from his love struggles with Lois Lane and Lana Lang, his greatest weakness is Kryptonite. Ironically, the element comes from his home planet.
Kryptonite slows him down, relaxes him and in larger quantities, it incapacitates him. You can bring Superman to his knees with the heavy cultivar Kryptochronic by Alien Labs. This hybrid is a cross of Fruity Pebbles OG and Alien Cookies crossed with Jet Fuel Gelato. Its flavor gives off a creamy, fruity, and gassy funk.
If you want to feel all the terpenes that hail from another planet, try the Alien OG from Island. Alien OG is a cross between Alien Kush x Tahoe OG, its aromas boast a pungent and citrus aroma followed by a pine and woody undertone.
Doctor Strange uses his powers of astral projection to alter time around objects, locations or other beings. These powers allow Strange to move forward and backward through an ever changing existence. He can use his powers to navigate the space time continuum. He has the ability to trap enemies in time loops and even take a glimpse into potential future timelines and realities.
Doctor Strange receives his power typically from one of three divine sources: The Vishanti (a trinity formed of Hoggoth, Oshtur, and Agamotto. Navigate your way through never ending realities and timelines with Now and Later by Fresh Baked. Now and Later is an evenly balanced hybrid of Zkittlez X Abula from the hard working cultivators up in Long Beach.
As you join Doctor Strange and his cosmic powers, utilize the calming powers in our variety of Cosmic View topical balms to keep your body relaxed and comfortable through the twists and turns of navigating the multiverse.
Harley Quinn’s origin story is steeped with love and betrayal. Harleen Quinzel was betrayed by The Joker and tossed into a vat of chemicals in the same chemical plant where he was reborn. Harleen emerged from the chemical vat with bleached skin and a damaged psyche.
Harley Quinn has expert gymnastic skills, proficiency in weapons and hand-to-hand combat, complete unpredictability, immunity to toxins, as well as enhanced strength, agility, and durability.
Her psychosis affects her decision making, leaving her more instinctively shooting from the hip, keeping her adversaries surprised and on their toes. To peer into the chaos and mind of Harley Quinn, grab some Unruly OG by Blem or as an ode to her on and off again lover The Joker, try Green Crack Infused Pre-Rolls from Featured Farms.
