This was a superb Indica-dominant cross, bottom line. The overall grow quality and bag appeal was impressive, while the perfect harvest timing seemed like the veritable cherry on top. The two parent strains really aren't known for their taste and smell (both are generally chosen for their potency), but this cross was still very pleasant to smoke, possessing a nice lemony bite. We recommend this most highly as an after work or late-night med, as it puts the user in a very sedative and relaxed state where even basic communication can at times be too much to deal with. Sinking into the couch and enjoying the mood elevation and warm body presence is probably the most likely effect of this med; a real Indica experience despite the slightly rushy start. Great job by the Biocare crew — it was a very well cared-for sample overall that lasted longer than most and retained medicinal potency well into hour #2.
This was one of the frostiest samples we've gotten in some time, with a thick coating of trichomes covering nearly every surface. The structure of this sample was also very good, with a moderate density and a hearty stickiness.
Though it's not an aroma that really marks itself as distinct or uniquely enjoyable, this G-13 Widow produced a lovely sharp lemon-pine scent with a bit of muskiness and also sweetness in the mix. Lemon is at the forefront though for sure, and it was nicely pungent once broken apart.
It was mostly a fresh and clean-tasting vegetation with a pine element to it — not really something we'd seek out, but certainly not a bad flavor. The smoke was smooth despite being rather thick, and the final ash was a very light gray, indicating that it had a proper flush.
To start, this strain had us feeling slightly racy, with an elevated heart beat, a boost of energy, and the urge to be social and active. A lot of head and eye pressure fluctuations, a buzzing warm body, and a slightly slow/hazy mental state were the other initial pieces of this surprisingly Sativa-oriented start. It was at this point where we had a bit of disagreement on the overall tone of the experience — one reviewer continued on the energetic and clear-headed path while the other two were knocked for a relaxing Indica loop. It seems the time of day and situation might play a larger role in the effects of this med than some others — the energetic one was a mid-day review when the reviewer had things to do, and he functioned well. The others were in the morning and later at night when both reviewers were not busy, so the heavy effects seemed to come through harder. In any case, there was strong body relaxation, mental relaxation, and a persistent ocular/forehead effect that continued well into the 2nd hour. The end of the experience was rather sedative and could easily lead into sleep.
