Advice Goddess

Home is where the fart is & Love has come to sty

by Amy Alkon

Helping Hands

4100 S. Cedar St., Lansing. M-Sat 11 a.m.-8 p.m. (517) 993-5336

by City Pulse
Strains vary in price from $15-$25 per gram. At $25 a gram, Apollo, a sativa strain, was definitely the best bud offered at the time. The buds were thick and sticky with oozing trichomes that carried a sweet, citrus aroma. Similar to the popular Super Lemon Haze strain, the smoke tasted sweet, fruity and went down smooth.
