Summer/Fall 2023

Price: $48/eighth

Part baller, part magic. An Exotic Genetix indica-dominant hybrid strain made by crossing Gary Payton and Red Runtz, Gary Poppins has some of the most beautiful buds of any strain in Las Vegas; they’re caked in trichomes and sprinkled with unique terpenes including caryophyllene, limonene and humulene. Gary Poppins hits with a sweet and spicy flavor that includes both diesel and herbal hints.

Its strong fruity smell is borderline addicting, and it smokes fairly smoothly thanks to the caryophyllene and a 23% THC profile—“medizin” indeed. Full-plant dried at a climate-controlled 60ºF at 60% relative humidity; cured for three weeks. Average batch size is 20 pounds.

Medizin’s Gary Poppins. (Chris Kudialis)
