This sample had an interesting red/purple cast to it overall, looking different than most samples from arm's length in the bag/jar and even more unique up close. The Purple Afghani influence can definitely be seen in the coloration, while the structure seemed much like many OG Kush varieties. Trichome coverage was above-average for sure, with quite a few golden and amber-capped trichome heads that were well-preserved.
While not overtly pungent, the smell of this sample certainly did remind us a bit of cherries — actual cherries, not the uber-sweet candy conception of cherry. It had twinges of OG Kush acridness (some citrus, musk, and spice), but was overall pretty smooth-smelling and pleasant.
There was a faint fruity sweetness mixed in with some mentholated qualities and a bit of spice — overall though, it just had a hashy, smoky quality that wasn't particularly distinct or appealing. The flavor went downhill relatively quickly as well, only really showing itself on the first 2 hits.
This was a fairly typical hybrid experience overall, with a Sativa beginning and an even-handed Indica relaxation throughout. To start, it had our eyes feeling flush and full of pressure, some "headband"-like feelings, and a buzzing presence all over the body. Mentally, there were moments of stupor early on where thoughts were difficult to pull out of their hiding spots, but that seemed to clear up within the first hour, when the effects began their decline. This was a bit of a cerebral "thinker" strain, more prone to solitary thought or one-on-one social interaction rather than something like a party. It's not one for focus-heavy work due to its tendency for distraction, but it was relatively functional and clear-headed overall like most OG Kush hybrids. The comedown was a little bit on the tired side, as it seemed to turn into more of a base relaxation experience about 1.5 hours in.
