Summer and fall are the seasons for yard sales, as the last warm days shorten and the piles of unused nicknacks in the garage scream to be rehomed. And for those pickers who never miss turning for a sign know, yard sales have the potential to bring hidden gems to new owners for pennies on the dollar – surely eliciting a high-five when a big score happens.

That’s why we chose to pair Yard Sale, the heady sativa from Lazy Bee Gardens, with the High Five Hefe from Iron Horse Brewery. Starting with the gorgeous full-bud, on-stem flower in the glass container from Snow White, this sativa was given the longer growing period needed to produce the effects we love – all the while being nurtured by Clean Green Certified growing practices. The buds are light green and covered in orange hairs and trichomes, releasing a warming citrus-honey-haze that teases the senses as the sticky flower is broken up for smoking.

This flower smells like summer, with first tokes delivering a sweet floral haze that burns slowly – sending waves of tingly, cerebral euphoria with each hit. Whimsical and magical, like the last warm days, this strain brings the open creative buzz it takes to rummage through strangers’ belongings. That’s where the High Five Hefe can provide some liquid courage and refreshment, with a golden light-bodied beer brewed with ginger and honey for a refreshing and bright sip that amplifies a buzz between tokes. 

Let this be the easy pairing decision … so the hard choices between a “Friends” DVD set, outdated fashion and camping gear can be made in a proper state of mind.

Testing: 23% THC | 2.98% CBG | 2.7% Terpenes | 6% ABV
