Phenotype Profile: This sample consisted of dense, neon-green buds with random brown-orange pistils and coated in a heavy, fuzzy blanket of trichomes.
Bud Density: 4.5 [1 -5]
Terpene Profile: Unground, these buds smelled mildly of banana and pungent citrus notes. When ground, the banana smell is still there, though it takes a little bit of a back seat to the tangie, sweet-n-sour citrus aromas. When smoked, I found that the flavors were more simplified than the aromas and also very subtle. I detected mild banana, light citrus with light pine notes. It seemed the terpenes were more complex and prominent in aroma than in flavor.
TIP: To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library page.
Effects: At this elevated THC level, the effects were immediate and potent. For me, it started in the eyes and spread outward. The cerebral is soon joined by mild-to-moderate body relaxation. The balance the effects accurately reflects the 60/40 Sativa dominance. These effects work well as a daytime med that won’t get you too wound up or relaxed; however, at high doses you may lose focus.
Duration of Effects: 2 hours
May Help With: Helped with mood and fatigue. May also help with mild body and muscle pain, depression, appetite, stress (and more)
Compared to other “flavor” strains (that’s what I call them), this is a very good example. Overall I thought it was well grown, dried, cured and trimmed.
