My friend Sean Brady and myself came up with a stoned satire idea of doing our very own take on Green House Seeds Strain Hunter series. We call ourselves Strain Pickers and go off in search of wild cannabis in urban setting of Toronto. There’s some great spots to smoke cannabis in Toronto other than Vapor Central and we pick the best pot to smoke in these far flung out of the way locations. At least for Toronto people. Our pilot was shot using Brady’s cellphone. However, I look forward to going back to the spot with my HD cam and re-shooting the satire.
Our debut is coined after the hiking term PUD – Pointless Up & Down. From Brady’s posting on YouTube. Matt Mernagh – Cannabis Champion of the World – and Sean ‘Potato Pipe’ Brady hit the trails of Toronto, hunting for marijuana. In a twist on the ‘Strain Hunters’ format which follows a team to exotic locations around the world in search of unique seeds to breed, Matt and Sean stay local but venture well off the main paths of Canada’s largest city with nugs to toke, and prime locations to do so.
Episode One of Strain Hunters – PUD Puffers – finds the guys battling pointless up and down on nature trails when they encounter urban art, and pause to toke and dab. Episode Two promises to be of much higher video quality, hopefully suffer from less technical difficulties, and potentially be more organized … well, we can promise, but at the least it’ll look better resolution wise! Unfortunately any promises that the hosts will be sharper are total lies. We’re hoping the pilot is picked up by Pot TV, but if it isn’t here’s the link to Brady’s YouTube.
