Does the worm on a bud mean yum? Oh so many questions.



LOS ANGELES, Aug. 4, 2022
Ball Family Farms (BFF) today announces the release of the bespoke strain "The Phonzie," created in collaboration with P_Valley star J. Alphonse Nicholson. After being introduced to BFF products, Nicholson found they aided in calming his anxiety, allowing him to remain focused on his acting. The new strain, named for the actor and musician, was exclusively pheno_hunted to incorporate terpenes limonene and caryophyllene, which are associated with calm and relaxation, aimed at easing anxiety and stress. The Phonzie will hit California retail stores later this month.

"I'm a huge fan of sativa_dominate hybrids that still have a slight indica feel. Chris and his team cultivated exactly what I wanted," says J. Alphonse Nicholson. "From the nose to the structure The Phonzie is truly a beautiful strain. Its smooth taste gives you an excellent high that allows you to move throughout your day calm and relaxed, feeling energized and not heavy."

In recent years anxiety has been on the rise, as has prescription abuse, driving some to seek non_traditional forms of stress relief. Nicholson, who has dealt with anxiety his entire life, found respite from the day_to_day grind in Ball Family Farms' terpene_rich cannabis. The Phonzie, a cross between Bruce Leroy and Laura Charles, tastes like Skittles and cream and smells like a fruit basket. This strain gives off relaxed, calm vibes with a bit of energy, allowing you to move throughout your day feeling good. It's very soothing, light, and smooth like the Fonz.
