Rapper, lyricist, fashionista, and 420 entrepreneur Wiz Khalifa is almost as synonymous in the public mind with weed as long-gone comedian W.C. Fields was with whiskey. Slick and hooky singles like “Bake Sale” and “Still Blazin” evoke the ganja with blunt-force subtlety while selling millions.

Legend insists specifics of the real Wiz strain are unknowable but many knockoffs and near-cousins have wandered into commercial circulation under this name and “Khalifa Kush.” However puny the measure, these were nevertheless handsomely frosted and dense popcorn nugs.

A definite “lift” strain that focuses the mind most intently and helps a lazy summer afternoon fly by with much-needed productivity. A sturdy killer of fatigue and boredom, this bootleg Wiz may differ from the genuine article in some recondite way but from published reports, this shit is close enough. THC yields on this strain go as high as 27%, which is way better than merely respectable among most tokers, even the most serious.
