What is the Riddler OG Kush Strain?
Riddler OG is a top shelf hybrid medical cannabis strain. Most patients find this medication hits like a 50/50 mix of Indica and Sativa, although it may lean more on the Indica side. The Riddler works well for mild daytime pain relief. True connoisseurs will appreciate the signature OG taste and smell.
How Much is the Top Shelf Donation Price at your Dispensary in Los Angeles?
Our top shelf strains, including the Riddler OG, costs $20 per gram or $45 per 1/8th for our full members. Temporary patients on the free 6 month trial membership pay $50 per 1/8th as a top shelf donation.
What is a Pre-ICO Dispensary? Is Humboldt Relief Pre-ICO?
A pre-ICO dispensary is a collective in Los Angeles that opened before the 2007 moratorium imposed by the city. As a result of Proposition D, no shops that opened after the moratorium are permitted to stay open. Pre-ICO dispensaries in the San Fernando Valley are few and far between, but we are proud to be one of the last caregivers serving the Reseda area and beyond. We are legal to operate as long as we stay in compliance with the local regulations. So far we have not had any problems meeting their guidelines.
Can I Still Use a Humboldt Relief Coupon from the July Issue of Green Acres Magazine?
Sorry, we cannot honor discount coupons that already expired. If you look carefully at those coupons, you will see that they are only valid until July 31st, which was almost 2 weeks ago. We are working on new promotions to save you money on your favorite meds, so stay tuned! We will let you know as soon as more discounts are available. One Love!
After 3 years of honing my skills as a nug pornographer, I thought it was time to share some tricks of the trade. When I started out in July of 2010, I didn’t even own a camera. HR needed help, so I got a Canon Powershot SD980 IS and started snapping. The pictures sucked ass for several months, and I would take anywhere from 75- 100 nug shots of each strain to get 4 satisfactory photos. In January of 2011 I invested in a Promaster portable tabletop Studio, a recommendation from the salesman at Hooper Camera in Chatsworth; this fairly inexpensive piece of equipment improved my results substantially. I still use this lightbox, although I plan to move on as soon as I have the extra cash.
The macro setting on a point & shoot camera isn’t really meant for heavy duty use, and it crapped out on me about a year after the purchase date. At that point I felt ready to upgrade my setup, and the boss, Big A, agreed to split the cost of a Canon Rebel t3i with me. For those who aren’t familiar, this Canon series is the perfect intro to DSLR. The capabilities are definitely not pro level, but I highly recommend this machine for amateurs looking to get their feet wet. It took a few weeks to get used to the system, and I didn’t dare touch Manual mode until I sat down with fashion photographer Tal Karasso who kindly showed me the ropes.Now I get good shots most every time, and I’ll show you how to take nug shots like a pro.
Cannabis Photography Tips
- Promaster tabletop studio
- tabletop tripod
- Canon Rebel t3i w/ 18-55mm lens
- 2 perimeter lights w/ 150 watt daylight bulbs (lights are positioned facing the bud at a 45 degree angle.
- 1 ghetto desk lamp w/ 100 watt daylight bulb (positioned on the left hand side of the shooting tent, facing a white t-shirt that serves as a reflective surface)
- 1 glass curing jar w/ mirror on top
- Postproduction editing Photoshop CS5
The Secret to Shiny Nug Shots
A lot of people assume that there’s a trick to getting the trichomes to pop in a picture or that the shine comes from artificial touch ups. In fact I do very little editing after the fact. The bud looks beautiful because I’m lucky enough to be exposed to the finest quality bud in Los Angeles. Sure makes my job easy! But you won’t get the kind of image clarity I do without shooting in manual mode. I shot in Aperture priority for a long time, which gave the buds a soft, glowing appearance.This method works and it’s faster in the sense that you don’t need to make many adjustments between shots.That said, you need to manipulate the shutter speed to get that sparkle. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s a nice photography cheat sheet for ya:
I’ve heard about plenty of other weed porn shooting methods ranging from microscopes to scanners, but this is how I handle the HR menu pictures. If you have any tips to share or questions about cannabis photography, by all means, leave a comment below! I’m especially interested in macro lens recommendations in the hopes that someday I’ll be able to afford real pro tools. Donations are welcome!

The Queen Jane strain arrived last Friday, and we fear she got lost in the excitement over the new B-23 strain. HR would like to apologize to her majesty; we didn’t mean to neglect our favorite organic medical marijuana menu item. Indeed, we think all of our members searching for potent a Indica dominant hybrid will enjoy this beautiful batch:
If you ignored Queen Jane on your last visit, there’s still time to make amends. She’s waiting for you on the top shelf at our Reseda dispensary; she may give you the silent treatment at first, but she’ll come around. Just treat her with the respect she deserves, and she’ll return the favor. Please remember that you must have your cannabis rec and ID with you in order to access our facility. One Love!
Greetings Humboldt Relief Collective members! Are you ready for the Brutalizer strain?
Remember, this super stoney strain isn’t sitting on the top shelf–-you must request Brutalizer by name! He’s chilling with Uncle Z in the basement dungeon, so you need to yell “BRUTALIZE ME!!!!” to get his attention. And don’t forget to bring your marijuana card as well as your ID to get in on this action. One Love!
Greetings Humboldt Relief Collective members! It’s cold outside, but our medical marijuana menu will keep you warm! Cuddle up with our top shelf lady of mystery, Jane Doe OG Kush:
You won’t find Jane sitting on the shelf; you’ve got to ask for her by name! Remember, HR members get a FREE JOINT for every 1/8th donation up to a 1/2oz today! Come to Reseda to collect your bonus medication, but don’t forget your mmj rec and ID! One Love!
Greetings Humboldt Relief Collective members! Here’s a sneak peak at the best selling Sativa marijuana strain in Reseda:
Now all the new patients know why the Grapefruit is our most popular top shelf Sativa strain. Remember, long time members can grab the Grapefruit for $45 per 1/8th! Non-paid members have to pay the regular $50 donation price. Also, please make sure to bring your marijuana card and ID with you to our Reseda cannabis club. One Love!
Greetings Humboldt Relief patients! We know that you can’t always afford to donate for top shelf medication. Fortunately, we offer high quality, lower priced medical marijuana strains for patients on a budget. Our basement dwelling buddy Uncle Z recommends the mid-level 818 OG:
This medication is available for $45 per 1/8th. It’s a hybrid similar to the top shelf HR #23 and the SFV OG. The 818 represents our area code, and the 818 OG is definitely worthy of this honor. Stop by your friendly neighborhood medical marijuana dispensary in Reseda, CA to start the weekend off right. Happy Friday! One Love!
