STRAIN HUNTERS LIVE THREAD - TY EXPO - TORONTO 2012

124 posts in this topic

Here we go guys.... finally, and out of the blue, a new LIVE THREAD begins.

Arjan, Olaf and myself arrived in Canada with a KLM flight 12 hours ago.

We met on the early hours of wednesday at Schiphol Airport, got some breakfast and boarded the plane. The almost 8 hours daytime flight went smooth, with no delays. But by the time we landed I was craving a smoke. Real bad.

Lucky for us clearing customs was fast and easy, and in no time we were in a taxi direction downtown Toronto.

The sky deep blue, full sun, and a mild temperature around 24 degrees made our adjusting to the jetlag a lot easier. After checking in and leaving our stuff in our rooms we went for a triple-A Alberta beef burger, really tasty, and then we grabbed a cab to go to the recently opened but already famous Vape On The Lake, the first official Vapor-Lounge in Canada.

Our friend Marco Renda, organizer of the Treating Yourself Expo, welcomed us in the Vapor-Lounge with plenty of drinks and of course plenty of local high-grade strains brought by licensed medical growers. Canada is known for the quality of its bud, but here we are talking prime-time weed. Top of the game.

In no-time we are stoned, and the airplane ride seems really far away already.

Things get hazy from there on.

It's now past 11pm local time, and past 5am tomorrow morning for my biological-stoned clock, so I figure I'll upload some pics and pass out.

I am loving Canada. Every minute of it, and every toke.

Tomorrow it's time to build the stand for the expo.

PS: sorry for the poor quality of the pics. I am NOT MrX. It's clear, I should stick to the plants. LOL

PPSS: all pics made with iPhone

I just woke up, it's 7:15 am and my room is like a box. Totally sealed. No window can open.

I hate this. I hate windows that do not open. Especially in a Hotel. But then again, in Toronto most Hotels are like this, certainly all of the downtown ones.

I will head downstairs quickly for a coffee and a j

Here I am, back in my room after my wake&bake session. The weather is amazing today, sunny, dry, mild.

I had a bad expresso coffee at the bar, then headed outside (there is no way to smoke in the hotel, very strict policy and smoke detectors everywhere.....) to get high.

My first joint was Humbolt County Kush x Chocolope, from a BC grower friend of Urban Grower legend Remo.

Great weed, tastes like vanilla, really strong and kushy. And really, really stoned.

I love Canada!!!!!

Now breakfast time, then we're heading downtown for some shopping.

At 12:00 we will start building our stand at the expo.

See you online Hunters!!!!!

Ha ha ha . you don''t like canada you liked that KUSH ..lol

You both looked bored yesterday, but maybe the flight and time warp .. thosse glasses look ....well what's the rigfht word = stupido ? - I mean artistic but who wants such a robotnic hookah in his house and smoke from it ?

Me definitely not - the weed looks good though and I wish you all the best.

Fun and nice contacts and of course financial success - keep on spreading the GHS spirit .

Good one

It's fucking crazy! In those so called "civilized" countries, they take care of people like they are inbeciles, you cannot open the window cause you could fall out... You cannot drive on the bicycle without a helmet because you coud fall and hurt yourself... What's next, they're going to put signs like in the United States, that "you could not breathe under the water"?

So, here we go with an update!

It's now 17:30 and we are done building the stand. This year we came with a small stand, and putting it together was a smooth operation.

I even had time to take a couple of breaks to roll joints and smoke them outside in the sun.

While we were building the stand we met lots of familiar faces, and it's a great feeling to be part of this sort of cannabis circus that are the expos and tradeshows around the world.

It's a cool crew....

Now some pics:

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
