Summary: “One hit will make you change your mind.”
On New Year’s Day 2015, Carrie ZM and I were on one of our typical morning phone calls where we bullshit about nothing in particular while throwing a little Pine-Sol in the sink so the house smells clean and our husbands think we’ve been busting our humps and earning our keep. That morning, however, we got on the topic of New Year’s resolutions. We quickly decided that we’re not about that life, so instead of doing the whole new-year-new-me song and dance, we agreed we’d just spend the year doing dope shit.
Carrie went on to co-host two fantastic fandom contests and beta’d a few fabulous stories. And me? Well I did a little writing here and there in my free time. But mostly, I sat around and watched a bunch of documentaries … about dope.
Though admittedly, I’m no cannabis connoisseur or canna-sseur, if you will, I became fascinated with the medical marijuana industry nonetheless. With each hour I spent learning the ins and outs of the green scene, a plot bunny formed, and I wondered if I could take Edward Cullen from being our own personal brand of heroin and instead make him our very favorite strain of Kush.
This fic is pure fun. No drama. No angst. Just a quick summer read with a little Edward and Bella lovin’ and hopefully a few laughs. So roll up, fandom … and get high off this weed-infused romance.
“What hybrid strains do you grow here?”
“White Widow over here and that’s Girl Scout Cookie over there.” He points to another area. “Back there we have Trainwreck and some Cannatonic.” We round the corner and stop in front of a large section of purple flowering plants. “And this … is E.C. Kush.”
“Tell me about it.” My words come out in a whisper as I step closer to the plants. “What does it do?”
Clearing his throat, he moves to stand beside me. “Medicinally speaking, it delivers swift pain relief without the sedative effects. No couch-lock. Just a nice overall relaxation. Helps with anxiety too.”
“It’s a nice balance of uplifting buzz and relaxing high.”
“Gets you loose as a goose, huh?”
He tilts his head back and forth. “Yeah, you could say that.”
“Isn’t that what a good strain is supposed to do?”
“It all depends on what you’re looking for. A good strain can leave you feeling euphoric. Lower your inhibitions. Heighten your senses.” My fingertips trace the bright purple hairs of the leaf when I feel his lips at my ear. “But I can get you higher.”
