"The Silence of The Lambs: A Romantic Comedy". Ohhh, doctor. Excuse me while I go take a cold shower. 



Type: Indica-Dominant Hybrid (95%/5%)     

Genotype:  Northern Lights #5  =  Afghani landrace  X  Thai landrace  

There is debate on the lineage. A classic that is one of the most influential breeding strains of all time. I remember how coveted well-grown cuts of this strain were in the mid-to-late 1980s. There was a lot that sucked about the 80s’, but the heirlooms & landraces available back then were wonderful.

Terpene Profile:
I did not request the lab report for this sample, so I will not be providing the specific terpene levels for this product.

In its intact state, the aromas were a powerful mix of pine and sweet floral. When dabbed, this sample tasted of sweet, flowery pine and hash.    

Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve the most flavorful and potent experience. To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
