Effects: Even though this strain is an even split, and this sample’s THC is pushed to the max, I found the ride to be mostly cerebral and mood-enhancing with mild body relaxation. What’s nice about the effects is that they are strong but not unsettling. It doesn’t hit you too hard up front, but rather eases you into a stroll down that old country road.

Highwayman: It Wasn’t Me!

Case : Highwayman (flower)

File Date : 09/28/2016

Case No : 0050

NARRATIVE:
Here’s another piece of fan mail I received yesterday.

Hi Dick,
It’s Todd. Hey, do you remember Ms. Baker, our 4th grade teacher? I’ll never forget the day you went up to her and asked, “Ms. Baker, do you know what’s worse than a tornado?” And she said naively, “Why no, Dickie. What’s worse than a tornado?” And then you replied with this big, stupid smile, “A titty twister!” Man, you should have seen the look on Ms. Baker’s face when you, uh. Well, anyway. Ah, memories. LOL.

Hi Todd,
I’m glad you still get your kicks out of that story, but I’ll say it one more time: it wasn’t me! It was Bobby De Angelo. You know, the kid with the Jerry Lewis buck teeth. It definitely wasn’t me. Can we move on now?

​ ANALYSIS:
Type: 50/50 Hybrid

Genotype: Highwayman = William’s Wonder X Tang Tang

This strain’s name, Highwayman, pays homage to the
famous music collaboration between Kristofferson,
Cash, Jennings and Nelson that defined “outlaw
country music”. The band’s name was The Highwaymen
​and they had a #1 song in 1985 titled “Highwayman”.

Tierra Rojo (New House Seeds is now TR Seeds) is the original breeder of Highwayman.

William’s Wonder (aka Willem’s Wonder) = Indoor Indica Hybrid; unknown lineage. Known for high resin content.
Super Sativa Seed Club (SSSC) is the original breeder.

Tang Tang (Sativa-dominant) = Blue Sonja phenotype
Grindhouse Medical Seeds Co. is the original breeder of Tang Tang (and Blue Sonja).

Cultivator: Bedford Grow

Date Purchased: 09/23/2016

Delivery Method(s) Used: Clean glass pipe

Cannabinoids Profile: THCa 25.94%; THC .81%; CBDa .09%; CBD .08% ( LK Pure Labs )

TIP : To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library page.

Phenotype Profile: As you can see from the pics, this 1gram sample bud was blanketed in trichomes, partially masking its sage greens and sparse orange pistils. The large calyx structure makes this flower look deceptively light and airy, though there is some density to the bud.
Bud Density: 4 [1-5]

Terpene Profile: In its intact state, this bud was very subdued, barely emitting light odors of earth. When broken down to smoke, I did not experience the chocolate and coffee aromas and flavors that are typically described with this strain. Instead, the dominating smell of the ground up bud was a distinct OG pungency on an earthy foundation. When smoked, this sample had a subtle yet complex taste of light pine, floral and earth, exhibiting some complexity from the Tang Tang side.

Effects: Even though this strain is an even split, and this sample’s THC is pushed to the max, I found the ride to be mostly cerebral and mood-enhancing with mild body relaxation. What’s nice about the effects is that they are strong but not unsettling. It doesn’t hit you too hard up front, but rather eases you into a stroll down that old country road.

Duration of Effects: 2 hours

May Help With: Helped with mood and mild body aches. May also help with migraines, anxiety, depression, mild body pain, mild nerve pain, appetite (and more)

Rating: 3.5 /5

This Highwayman sample was interesting because it was at once subtle and complex; a moving target that’s hard to nail down, like a true outlaw.

RPT SUMMARY:

I didn’t even know what a titty twister was in 4th grade.​

And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again. ’cause I’ll be there.

Country singers, on the other hand, regularly record entire albums together. Look at the country album charts over the years and you’ll find virtually every possible pairing of heavy hitters: Johnny and Waylon, Waylon and Willie, Willie and Merle, Merle and George, George and Tammy, ad infinitum.

Four Country Greats on the Road Again as Highwaymen : Collaboration: Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson team up tonight at the Pacific Amphitheatre.

Country singers are a musically incestuous lot. Every now and then, a couple of pop singers might call time out from their solo careers and team up for a single or two–Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder for “Ebony and Ivory,” Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty for “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” Kenny Loggins and Steve Perry for “Don’t Fight It”–but it doesn’t happen very often.

Country singers, on the other hand, regularly record entire albums together. Look at the country album charts over the years and you’ll find virtually every possible pairing of heavy hitters: Johnny and Waylon, Waylon and Willie, Willie and Merle, Merle and George, George and Tammy, ad infinitum.

The 1985 “Highwayman” album is one of the most ambitious and successful country collaborations ever, featuring three of the genre’s biggest stars–Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson–and one also-ran, Kris Kristofferson.

The project’s seeds were sown a year earlier, when the four were filming a TV special in Switzerland.

Between shoots, there were several informal jam sessions–and when they returned to the states, they decided to make an album together.

“Highwayman” promptly rocketed to the top of the national country charts–as did the single of the same name–and eventually sold more than 1 million copies.

A few months ago, the quartet resurfaced with a second album, “Highwayman 2.” And they’re currently in the midst of what a press release maintains is their “final tour as a foursome”–a 23-city, cross-country sweep that includes an appearance tonight at the Pacific Amphitheatre in Costa Mesa.

Even though each member of the band has done quite well on his own, the Highwaymen, as the four-way partnership has come to be called, is a perfect example of the whole being even greater than the sum of its parts.

Nelson’s starry-eyed romanticism and nasal whine are countered by Jennings’ robust machismo and gruff bark; Cash’s penchant for dramatic overkill is countered by Kristofferson’s weary subtlety. And vice versa.

They keep each other in check–and the result is something of a musical checkmate.

The first album is by far the superior one. Standouts include the title track, a classic I’m-gone-but-not-forgotten tune written by Jimmy Webb; a gripping rendition of Woody Guthrie’s heart-rending “Deportee (Plane Wreck at Los Gatos)”; and an intense remake of Cash’s own “Big River.”

The second album is good but not great. “American Remains” is essentially a rehash of “Highwayman,” and Nelson’s “Texas” is a pretentious tribute to his home state. But “Silver Stallion,” written by Lee Clayton, a longtime member of Nashville’s “underground,” is a wonderful Western ballad of the kind Gene Autry and his fellow “singing cowboys” used to sing on the silver screen, and “Born and Raised in Black and White” finds the foursome doing some splendid choral singing.

Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Johnny Cash play tonight at 7:30 at the Pacific Amphitheatre, 100 Fair Drive, Costa Mesa. Tickets: $22 to $31.50. Information: (714) 634-1300.
