Case: East Coast Sour Diesel - 2017 Batch (flower)  


File Date: 02/10/2017

Case No: 0094


Officer Downey here. This is very difficult for me, but, well, here goes....Last night I was arrested. That’s right, I was arrested and I wanted you to hear it from me before you see it on the news.

There’s no easy way to say this, so here goes: I was pulled over for speeding and was only wearing women’s panties from the waist down. They were a flirtatious deep red pair with tasteful but sexy lace. I was ticketed for speeding and indecent exposure. It’s a fetish I have, alright! We’ve all got our vices, okay! You tokers worship your devil's vine and I happen to enjoy wearing women's unmentionables. 

I’ve decided to spill my guts about this incident because I want to see if anyone out there is really reading this stuff. Yup, I lied. Show's over. All you burnouts can now go back to dabbing your brains into another galaxy.

In its intact state, these buds were so fresh (packed a few weeks before purchasing) – the aromas were overwhelmingly intoxicating....sweet, pungent fuel, sour citrus and floral notes. Once ground, the aromas get much sharper; the sweet fuel competes with grapefruit-lemon and pine notes. When smoked, this sample tasted of sweet fuel and sharp lemon with light floral and fruity notes on the exhale. Crisp, refreshing and nuanced.

What I’d call a ‘full-spectrum’, Sativa-leaning experience. It starts out clean, clear and empowering. Lots of energy and happiness. On the trip back, the effects get heavier in the crown and eyes. To me, it felt very Chemdawg-like coming into the home stretch. There was even a little couch lock at the end. Can be trance-like at high doses. It’s a high-peak/low-valley ride that will give you energy, euphoria and even some body relaxation but not focus.

Duration of Effects:
1.5-2 hours   

May Help With:
Helped me with mood and fatigue. May also help with depression, some forms of inflammation, mild aches and pains, creativity, appetite (and more)

A very excellent, super-fresh batch of ECSD. It seemed like it could be a different phenotype than the ESCD batch I reviewed in 2016, but I’ve no idea. First-timers should hold off on this one.

Besides, the color red really doesn't compliment my figure.  

And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again...’cause I’ll be there.
