Welcome to Paradise

It may be all in my head, but I swear the Champagne at Paradise Wellness is bubbly. A sativa-leaning hybrid, the intoxicating Champ is rich green in color and decorated with fiery hairs. The smell is skunky with an acidic twang, and the taste is light and dry like its namesake beverage. Its effect hits almost immediately, inciting buoyant and giddy humor. Some laziness sets in, too, but nothing like the couch coma an indica would cause. Champagne is what Paradise Wellness recommends to combat symptoms of depression. $15 a gram; 6240 Fair Oaks Boulevard in Carmichael, (916) 484-7185.
