This week we decided to give you folks something a little different. A while ago, when scheduling our recordings was getting hard to juggle and the talk of summer travel came up, Miranda had the idea that if we ever wanted to take a little break from recording, we could create playlists to offer you folks instead. Not necessarily having anything to do with cannabis, just music we wanted to present to you for whatever reason.

So, with me having just returned from a few weeks abroad, and Miranda getting over an extended sinus infection, that's what we have for you. More specifically, that's what I'm presenting to you this week. This baby is all mine!

I'm calling this playlist the Island Sativa mix. When the weather starts to heat up, I find myself gravitating even more than I normally do to the classic sounds of Jamaica. Whether it's ska, rocksteady, dub or reggae this is music that makes me want to move my feet and go on adventures.

Featuring absolute Jamaican icons like Sister Nancy, Bob Marley, Lee "Scratch" Perry, King Tubby and Gregory Isaacs. Coming across the sea to visit some of my current favorites in the United States like The Slackers, The Loving Paupers, Hepcat and, Baltimore's own Jah Works and The Scotch Bonnets- this is a pretty good representation of what you'll hear coming from my car when I'm driving through Hampden or Mount Vernon this summer.

If you're a fan of these genres already, I hope you'll dig the selections I made. If these styles aren't in your usual circulation, I hope maybe you'll find something you like that helps you explore these artists and their catalogs.

Jamaica has had an absolutely incredible impact on the musical world for such a tiny island with such a small population. It's definitely worth exploring, if you haven't taken the time to do so beyond The Wailers and Peter Tosh. So, with all that said, please enjoy this playlist i made for us. Preferably after a nice well balanced sativa or uplifting hybrid. I hope you'll let me know what you think.

That's it from me until next week, when Miranda and I will be back at it reviewing District Cannabis strains and talking about the elusive Linalool- Be well to yourselves, and each other. One love! ✌🏼
