For many years now, the cappuccino has been bastardized. These days, any espresso beverage with a layer of thick foam on top can masquerade as one. But traditionally, cappuccinos possess a much more strict and formulaic recipe – only between five and six ounces in size and generally equal parts espresso, milk, and foam. While coffee has been abased for mass consumption, Cannabis has had the opposite trajectory
Much like a cappuccino is topped with thick and luxurious foam, The White’s heavy trichome production dusts WiFi OG with a thick crystal layer.
Other recommended activities that would pair well with this combination of coffee and Cannabis include…
- A long brunch with your conservative, out-of-town relatives
- Going to a farmers’ market with your partner and asking to sample all the fruit, changing into a disguise, and then resampling all the fruit
- Binge-watching your favorite holiday movies

White Fire OG by Freya
Legalization has brought the breeders’ revolution and with it more hybrids than ever before. Long gone are the days when you had one or two options from your dealers. Shelves are stocked with more options than most know what to do with. But while some bemoan the loss of classic strains in the process, hybridization has brought us the Cookies phenomenon, countless blue cuts, and a myriad of other choices offered by your neighborhood dispensary.
White Fire OG – often referred to as WiFi – is a textbook example of a great hybrid. It’s East meets West. California’s San Fernando Valley OG crosses with OG Kush to create one parent, Fire OG, while the Florida-based Triangle Kush becomes The White.
Much like a cappuccino is topped with thick and luxurious foam, The White’s heavy trichome production dusts WiFi OG with a thick crystal layer. Fire OG lends an earthy and gassy note, ultimately leading to White Fire’s sour citrus and herbaceous, peppery flavors.
Similarly, as espresso mixes with the steamed milk and foam of a cappuccino, syrupy and nutty tastes erupt, with cream softening the bright, slightly bitter espresso. The diesel of the Cannabis is mellowed by the thick layer of soft foam on top of the beverage. The tart flavors of both coffee and Cannabis collide and complement, while the deeper notes of pepper pair beautifully with the rich, smooth experience of the espresso.
Cappuccinos are traditionally a morning drink – thought too heavy to be consumed past 11:00 – and the same could be said for WiFi OG. The high sets in with a thick cerebral fog, more euphoric than your average haze, and velvety like the head of the cappuccino. You’ll feel relaxed but uplifted, making this strain great for grabbing coffee with friends or being creative while tucked away in a cafe.
