Stoner & Co placed first in the Highest THC category in the 2020 High95 Cup, so I had a feeling I was in for a treat with their Princess Magic Girl – a strain with just the potency and terpene profile I was seeking. I stopped by their location in Biddeford, Maine knowing I’d find something with a kick, but looking for a strain with great flavor as well.
Head Cultivator Michael Whitmore and Owner Morgan Stoner have been busy breeding some amazing new strains. Princess Magic Girl is a cross between Frosted Gelato and Cherry Punch, and when they sampled the results, they knew they had a winner!
Opening the beautifully-branded zip bag, the scent of orange creamsicle with notes of cherry pie filled my nose and seemed to pull out those childish anticipations of fruity sweetness. I was giddy like a kid in a candy store.
The dense, light green buds were covered in sparkly crystals and boasted purple-tipped leaves and amber hairs – a pleasure to behold! The flowers were perfectly cured as well, and I was able to break it up for a fat joint using just my fingers.
The flavor of Princess Magic Girl was smooth and the effects immediate. After just a couple of cherry-flavored puffs, I felt my body relax as the usual aches and pains were soothed and I achieved the desired comfort mode. A couple of packed bowls after the day’s work was done put me into full couchlock, but with a feel-good cerebral high – highly recommended for getting creative with friends. But don’t sit too still … this level of THC can put you down quickly if you’re not careful.
Proprietors Morgan and Harleena Stoner (yes that’s their real last names) run a beautiful craft Cannabis dispensary with superb quality and unique flavors, and while that is undeniably impressive, it was their friendly team that amazed me the most. The Stoner’s deep care for their employees and the welfare of the local community is what Maine’s family-oriented craft Cannabis industry is all about. They’re medical now, but soon expanding into adult recreational use.
