The appearance of this strain is probably what most people would talk about if forced to choose, as it is truly impressive and beautiful, possessing both great structure as well as trichome coverage. Though we wanted the taste to match the lovely smell, it was adequate and didn't harm the experience in the least — the smoke was very smooth and enjoyable. The area where this strain really shined though was in its initial potency and its long-lasting duration, both of which were top-notch. In previous experience with the Northern Lights used in this cross, that was true of that strain as well — very enduring med that stays at medicinal levels longer than most. The particular brand of functional Indica relief this strain offered will help almost anyone dealing with daily pains and stresses while leaving them able to live their lives capably and handle social and professional situations. This new cross is great for intermediate users but will even impress the connoisseurs with its appearance and staying power.
This is a seriously pretty sample, with its tight but not blocks structure, healthy light green coloration, and it's frankly ridiculous coating of trichomes. The working title for this strain, "Crystal Gayle" is certainly appropriate, as it shimmers with globe-headed mostly clear trichomes, looking as if it was sprayed with glitter.
This strain had a nicely sharp and pungent (both pre and post-grind) citrus cleaner quality to it, even dabbling in the familiar Diesel range at times. It also had some hints of soil (probably the Northern Lights influence) and pine as well, making it a well-rounded spectrum of pleasing aromas.
This strain had a middling taste — it certainly wasn't bad, but it just didn't grab us in the way we were expecting after the aroma. It had many of the same elements, they just weren't as strong or noticeable — it was a slightly sweet piney Haze type of flavor with hints of the cleaner sharpness.
It mostly seemed to hit the head to start, giving us a buzzing feeling around the crown of the head, a slight increase in eye/brow pressure, some ear ringing, and a bit of a light head. Almost before we noticed, this strain seemed to lift us up off the couch and into a slew of activities requiring a moderate amount of focus — it had moments of slight raciness, but was overall very comfortable. It seemed to be a bit of a "creeper", building in effect through 30 minutes, when it had a full compliment of effects including strongly burning eyes. Almost trance-like at times, it had us feeling functional despite being very medicated and relaxed… it managed to retain mental clarity throughout the duration. It didn't seem to do a ton for muscle tension despite the high levels of mental relaxation, but showed great promise with appetite stimulation. A smooth descent where potency cycled on and off in waves finished things off, leaving us feeling aware and peppy by the end.
