We really wish this one had a tighter manicure, because it was beautiful underneath the guard leaves… the long, slender calyxes were just loaded with rows of tall trichomes. The color was a mix of fairly verdant greens, some yellow-tinted calyxes, a variety of purpling on both leaves and calyxes, and brick red pistils providing the final contrast. It was a little on the sticky/wet side, but the stem still snapped, so it appeared to be cured and dried adequately. The harvest appeared just a bit on the early side, with only a few ambers brewing.
This sample produced a rather pungent, almost acrid Diesel scent that was among the most pungent we’ve encountered pre-grind, hanging on the fingers if handled. One reviewer picked up notes of citrus peel, while another got some putrid sweetness that is often seen in Sensi Star. The skunky fuel smell seemed to calm down after a grind and those other aromas came out more.
Skunky and spicy on the inhale, with a background of fuel, it turned a little woody and smoky (like hickory) as it went on. It sizzled a bit when burnt, leading us to believe that a longer flush was in order… the slightly murky ash left behind added to that hypothesis. The smoke was fairly smooth yet expansive, making us cough a bit.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) General relaxation, energy and creativity at first, muscle tension relief, appetite stimulation, and strong ocular attention.
This Hong Kong is an in-house creation for Natural Remedies, and this early batch showed a ton of potential. Once it really gets dialed in and perhaps gets a longer flush/cure, this one may be a competitor for our favorite examples of the strain. Super stinky Diesel-dominant smell, good taste, and a striking (yet unkempt) appearance made this appealing in multiple areas. We anticipate seeing this one again some time in the future to see how it’s improved after a few harvests…
