The dense “budlet” style structure and snappy cure of this Sativa-dominant sample gave it great texture and reminded us of well-done Sour Diesels of the past. Though it was overall rather impressive, we did find that there were a few too many guard leaves left on and it hurt the overall trichome coverage, which was only average for an otherwise visually striking strain. The harvest was maybe a little early, but we did spot a couple of amber trichomes among the mostly clear patches. The trichs were well-preserved and showed a high amount of care, which was also evident in the grow itself.
Pungency was the name of the game here, and this sample was easily-noticed, whether it was sealed in a bag or not. The dank rubber-fuel-skunk front notes has a background of spice and citrus, making for an almost overwhelming scent package before it’s even ground up. The post-grind aroma brought to mind a bit more of the Sour Diesel, with a stronger kick of fresh citrus and an almost floral quality once it settled. This strain is one of those that is a matter of personal preference — most of our crew loved it, but it is a challenging scent like most Chem and Diesel strains.
The pungent aroma translated directly to the flavor, which again was Chem-dominant, with a Sour Diesel-influenced citrusy finish. Deeply spicy with notes of rubber, skunk, and chemical cleaner on the inhale, the exhale left an almost anise-like flavor on the lips, and a fuely scent in the nostrils. Again, this whole family of strains are a bit of an acquired taste, but Chem and Diesel-lovers will certainly appreciate this example’s flavor. The smoke was moderately harsh and expansive, causing coughing on large hits — the final ash was a medium light gray, showing an adequate but not perfect flush.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Energy, ocular attention, appetite stimulation, major mood elevation, anti-nausea properties, and one reviewer reported significant relief from an arthritic back.
One of our veteran staff called this one of his favorites of this year effects-wise, ranking it in the upper echelon of potency and rating both the smell and flavor a 9+. Not all of the staff were quite as enthusiastic about the flavor and smell, but the effects were universally enjoyed for their energetic uplift that only had a tiny edge of anxiety to it early on — great balance of energy and comfort. This was a thoroughly enjoyable medicine, and we felt that it fits best for the daytime, especially a day off when you can really appreciate and indulge in its mind-expanding and mood-elevating effects. One reviewer commented that this was as much a recreational “fun” med as a medical one, while another got great relief from back problems and nausea, so it seems to show a versatile nature. Minor nitpicking aside, we were very impressed with the total package here.
