Cannagars: Not your Average Thai-Stick
What exactly are cannagars and how are they different from "Thai Stick"?
As springtime approaches, some events might require you to add a touch of luxury and class to your smoking experience. For these special occasions when a regular joint or bong rip simply won’t do, Phuket High recommends the cannagar. These hand-rolled beauties are made from high-quality cannabis strains and offer a unique smoking experience that's not to be missed.
But what exactly are cannagars and how are they different from "Thai Stick"? Let's dive into the history and making of cannagars, as well as their effects, tastes, and aromas.
History and Making of Cannagars
Cannagars are essentially cannabis cigars that are made by wrapping high-quality cannabis buds in cannabis leaves and then curing them together. They originated in the West Coast cannabis scene and have gained popularity in recent years.
The process of making cannagars is a time-consuming one, requiring patience and attention to detail. The cannabis buds must first be carefully selected for their quality and flavor profile. They are then ground up and mixed with a cannabis concentrate to create a paste-like consistency.
Next, the cannabis leaves are wrapped around the paste and the entire thing is tightly compressed and cured for several weeks to allow the flavors to meld together. Once the cannagar is fully cured, it can be sliced and smoked like a traditional cigar.
How Are Cannagars Different Than Thai Stick?
Thai Stick is a type of cannabis that originated in Thailand in the 1960s and was popularized in the United States during the 1970s. Unlike cannagars, Thai Stick is typically a long stick of cannabis buds that are tied together with hemp string and coated in a mixture of opium, hashish, and other herbs.
While both Thai Stick and cannagars are smoked, cannagars are made with higher-quality cannabis and offer a more refined smoking experience. Cannagars are also typically smaller than Thai Sticks and do not contain any additional herbs or substances.
Popular Cannabis Strains and Products Used
Cannagars can be made with a variety of cannabis strains and products, but some of the most popular include high-THC strains like OG Kush, Girl Scout Cookies, and Gelato. CBD-rich strains like Harlequin and ACDC can also be used for those looking for a more mellow experience.
In addition to cannabis buds and concentrates, cannagars can also be infused with terpenes and flavors to enhance the taste and aroma. Some popular terpenes include limonene, myrcene, and pinene, each offering its own unique effects and flavors.
Suggested Use and Storage
Cannagars are typically smoked like a traditional cigar, but they can also be cut into smaller pieces and smoked like a joint. They are a great option for those who enjoy the ritual of smoking and want to savor their cannabis experience.
When it comes to storage, cannagars should be kept in a cool, dry place to prevent them from becoming too dry or brittle. A humidor can also be used to help maintain the perfect humidity levels.
Price and Availability
Cannagars are a luxury item and are priced accordingly. They can range anywhere from $50 to several hundred dollars depending on the quality of the cannabis used and the size of the cannagar. They are not typically available at your local dispensary and may need to be purchased from a specialty retailer.
Effects, Tastes, and Aromas
When it comes to the effects of cannagars, they can vary depending on the strain and potency of the cannabis used. However, they are generally known for providing a smooth and flavorful smoking experience that is more mellow than smoking a joint or hitting a bong.
When it comes to the effects, tastes, and aromas of cannagars, they provide a unique and potent high that is not for the faint of heart. Expect to feel relaxed, happy, and euphoric. As for the taste and aroma, it all depends on the strains used, but you can expect a smooth and flavorful smoke with hints of earthy, fruity, or floral notes. The added terpenes give your cannagar a unique and aromatic flavor that'll make your taste buds dance.
Lastly, let's talk about terpenes and THC%. Terpenes are the aromatic oils that give cannabis its unique flavors and aromas. When it comes to THC%, cannagars can range anywhere from 15% to a whopping 40% THC. It's important to know the THC% of your cannagar so you can properly dose yourself and avoid any unwanted side effects.
