(6,75/10) There are definitely some textural differences in California medicine vs. Colorado medicine, and this was certainly a case of that. This sample was dense as a rock and had a very closed, blocky structure that made it difficult to appreciate the visual qualities of the medicine up close. Once magnified though, the large collection of cloudy trichomes shows that this was a well-timed harvest. The trichomes though seemed a little beat up, with very few (mostly on the untouched interior of the bud) making it to our hands totally undamaged and intact.
This sample had a light and spicy Kush scent, carrying a pronounced perfumey, floral hint along with the more standard Kush aromas. When ground, it got slightly more aggressive and took on a light fuel/chem sharpness that added to the complexity. This isn’t the most pungent sample in the world, but you can smell it sitting in the jar from a good distance… it seems to settle a bit and dissipate quickly once ground though.
Very much like the smell, this was a spicy and soil-heavy OG, with a pleasant and non-aggressive Kush flavor. The smoke was extremely smooth and not expansive, which made it a highly pleasurable smoking experience, especially for those with respiratory issues or patients who are used to vaporizing. The final ash was a medium gray with some white fleck, which shows it received an average flush before being harvested.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Mood elevation, strong ocular/head pressure fluctuations early on, rather strong body relaxation, appetite stimulation, and mental relaxation leading to sleep aid later in the duration.
The super-dense, dry, cured-for-6-months type of structure didn’t allow for much of a visual without the microscope, and it appeared that many of the trichome heads arrived to the shop in a mutated or damaged state — but that didn’t seem to hurt the experience much at all. The pleasant and light OG Kush flavor and smell reminded us of the less aggressive branch of that family (Ghost and SFV), while the super-smooth smoking experience was enjoyed by all of the staff, even those who primarily vaporize. Very potent and medicinal at first, it evolved into a more base relaxation experience after 1.5 hours or so, which led nicely into sleep when consumed at a late hour. This is a very solid Kush experience… it both mentally clear and relaxing, while also possessing a stereotypical Kush flavor profile — suitable for either daytime or night time use, it provided solid relaxation without causing sluggishness.
