A seriously pretty sample, this one has the structure/appearance that many of our staff prefers over all others, which is the well-defined, slightly loose one where you can see each calyx clearly and all the trichomes covering them. Though there were a few untrimmed leaves that could’ve gone, it was very much a calyx-heavy sample. The blend of light, frosty green with the jack-o-lantern orange pistils gave it a classic look, but “on steroids” thanks to the thick covering of perfectly-times trichomes.
This one instantly vaulted itself into the upper-echelon of our staff’s “Must Smell” list — the uber-sweet “blue candy”-like smell also carried hints of oranges, strawberries and a grazzy/fresh quality one reviewer described as “spring breeze”… there was a tinge of cleaner in there too, like Formula 409. Pre-grind it was very pungent as well, with the ability to stink up a room when the jar/bag is opened — it was a stronger, sharper smell pre-grind as well, which was unique (it had notes of sweet curry, fall spices, and honey). Top notch smell here, simply put.
After the smell being one of the high points of the last month or so (seriously, it smells that good), it was hard for the taste to live up to the billing, and that played out here. The dominant taste was a piney lime that has musky/sharp elements that brought to mind the OG part of the lineage… there was a sweetness present, but it wasn’t nearly as sweet as the smell. The final ash looked fairly murky and dark — we’d definitely suggest a longer flush, which may help bring out the amazing aroma into the taste to a greater degree… it was a smooth smoke though.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Ocular attention, stress relief/mood elevation, some creativity boost, mental focus once the main potency passed, body relaxation, may lead into sleep at high dosages and/or later in the evenings.
This sample was just a hair away from reaching A status… literally half a percentage point. Very high marks in all “bag appeal” areas, this sample simply screams “connoisseur-grade cannabis”. The only flaw we really noticed was the murky-looking ash — otherwise, there were no real complaints about the appearance or smoking experience. The effects were definitely a mixed bag typical of most hybrids, with a Sativa start and a more Indica-feeling finish. It was a bit overwhelming initially and left us feeling a bit self-conscious about our extremely medicated appearance, even in environments that were MMJ-friendly. Otherwise it was a good mid-day type of med for days when the stresses of life an/or daily aches and pains are getting to you — watch the dosage if you’re a newer patient though, as it can definitely get on top of you.
