Lansterdam in Review: Gage Cannabis
3425 S, Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Lansing
Stiizy is a California-based cannabis brand that launched in 2017 and has since expanded to Washington and Nevada. It crept its way into Michigan’s marijuana market back in August. They’re probably best known for their sleek vaporizers and wide variety of concentrate pods.
It’s also one of the trendier brands on the local medical markets, frequently appearing in flashy Facebook ads and in the hands of “influencers” on TikTok. The battery is $20 at Gage, which is also relatively new to the medical marijuana scene in Lansing. Pods are available for $45 each.
I’ve been on the hunt for a new vape pen for a few weeks and might’ve just found my new favorite with the Stiizy. I tried two varieties of cartridges and both of them were some of the smoothest draws I’ve had from a handheld vaporizer. It’s slim, discrete for on-the-go tokes and can easily last throughout the day on a full battery. Perhaps the best part? The cartridge variety.
Stiizy — Premium Jack (Sativa)
Price — $45/gram
THC content — 89.52%
Premium Jack is Stiizy’s spin on the famed Jack Herrer strain, known for its uplifting and clear-headed sort of high. And this lively sativa lives up to the name. It’s musky and earthy, yet still carries that biting sort of citrus note that always clears my sinuses. I haven’t exactly figured out which terpene is responsible for that subdued ammonia feel, but this pod was filled with it.
That’s not criticism either. In a weird way, I’ve learned to appreciate that bitter sort of herbiness.
With a THC content of nearly 90%, it’s also no surprise that only a few tokes will do it with this stuff. Between
