Strain: Foxy Lady - Indica
Producer: J.H. Crash Landing
Contributor: Asia Mayfield
Foxy Lady by J.H. Crash Landing hits 26.6% THC. That’s a pretty high amount, even nowadays. I don’t trust the growers who claim their flower tests above 30%. But that’s a story for another post. For now, you should know that Foxy Lady costs $18 for a gram, which puts it on the more expensive end of the price scale.
Foxy Lady buds are very dense. A single gram looks a little pathetic. It makes you wish you bought in bulk. I wouldn’t call the flower “sticky-icky,” but it’s not dry either. Bits of plant material clog my grinder when I try to break it down. I like bright, multicolored buds. By that standard, Foxy Lady is pretty boring. You have to look closely to see anything beyond a simple green color. There are a few spindly purple and orange hairs when you look closely.
I like the smell, but I’m not sure that non-cannabis lovers will. The buds are ripe and potent, with a smell that announces itself across the room. The first aroma that I can detect is peppery and pungent. While that smell is still tickling my nose, a heavy, musky scent creeps up. The buds smell better than the smoke. Everything that I like about the aroma is concentrated while it’s still in its cannabis flower form.
There isn’t much to talk about here. Foxy Lady tastes like weed. Nothing more, nothing less. It tastes exactly how you would imagine ground up grass mixed with dirt would taste. Now, I can’t give less than three stars because cannabis is a plant. Obviously, it’s going to taste a little weedy. There is usually something else worth noting in the flavor, a sweet or spicy or tang that adds complexity. Foxy Lady smoke is too simple.
Here is where Foxy Lady makes a name for itself. The 26% THC makes itself known, although not as much as I expected. A sleepy, drowsy feeling crept over my body the more I smoked. Nap time! Don’t smoke Foxy Lady if you need to be alert for a few hours. Indica strains are known for causing a “body high.” This isn’t always the case, but it’s definitely what’s happening here. I felt this deep in my bones.
Foxy Lady has a ton of THC, which means that it’s usually going to appeal to power smokers and people craving a heavy hit. A high-THC, indica strain can act like a sleeping pill. Smoke a few puffs if you want to be oblivious to the world. I could barely keep my eyes open.
You can skip Foxy Lady by J.H. Crash Landing. You are not missing much. I can’t think of anything that stands out about the buds. You can get a better, cheaper high 24-hours a day in Las Vegas. NuWu has a lot of special perks so it can justify a bloated price point.

NuWu’s name is getting tossed around the media a lot right now. It has the only drive-thru in the city, and the only cannabis tasting room in the state. You would think that NuWu would be one of my favorite dispensaries. But it’s not. The execution is lacking.
First, let’s talk about their most annoying mistake. They don’t have a bathroom! This is even crazier when you realize that their tasting room serves drinks. You can’t open a restaurant without a bathroom, but apparently, you can open a weed lounge. Anyway. The customer service is hit or miss. I spoke to two people. A very friendly budtender and a glum cashier.
If you decide to skip the drive-thru and go inside, you’ll be confronted with NuWu’s massive showroom. It looks like it’s twice the size of the average dispensary. All of their inventory is displayed in glass cases spanning the wall. You browse around until you determine what you want or you have a question, at which point you need to find a budtender. They’ll ring you up and grab your cash. If you need change, you won’t get it until you order is ready.
After your budtender sorts you out, you are given a number. Now it’s time to wait. This is one of the reasons why I’m not a NuWu fan. The wait seemed interminable. I grew three new grey hairs before they called my number.
When your order is up, the cashier gives you your change and lets you eyeball everything to make sure it’s correct.
