Case No: 0040
We all do our little dances in life, don’t we? Well, every week going on six years now, on Thursdays at around 4 o’clock to be exact, me and this old lady do our little dance, and it goes something like this...
[Mrs. Nowicki is standing in front of her house, getting the mail. I'm walking the beat as I approach her on the sidewalk.]
Me: Hello there, Mrs. Nowicki. Get anything good in the mail today?
Mrs. Nowicki: Jesus Christ, how the hell am I supposed to know? I don’t even have it out of the damn box yet!
Me: Now, Mrs. Nowi-
Mrs. Nowicki: Oh, for Christ's Sake! You’re that dumb cop, aren't you! Come by to bother me again. Just leave me be, will ya!
Me: I didn’t come by to-
Mrs. Nowicki: Did I ever tell you my dead husband was a Goddamn cop? And he was as sharp as a marble, too, just like you! [wheezy fit of laughter]
Me: Now that’s not a very nice thi-
Mrs. Nowicki: That dumb son-of-a-bitch! [coughs] Nothing but a worthless drunk. And now he’s dead. Oh well.
Me: Okay, Mrs. Nowicki. Have a good day, now.
Mrs. Nowicki: [mumbles] Yeah...okay.
Type: Indica-dominant Hybrid (65% / 35%)
Genotype: Phantom Cookies = Cherry Pie X Granddaddy Purple
Cherry Pie = Granddaddy Purple X Durban Poison
Original breeder: Granddaddy Purple & Ken Estes
Date Purchased: 08/17/2016
Delivery Method(s) Used: Clean glass pipe
TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library page.
Phenotype Profile: This sample consisted of three fairly dense, well-trimmed buds that displayed a range of greens and some remaining purple sugar leaves all wrapped up in lots of twisting orange pistils and a robust coating of trichomes.
Bud Density: 4 [1-5]
Terpene Profile: In its intact form, the buds gave off subdued aromas of earth mixed with a mild sweetness and very light pine hints. Once ground, pungency and fuel take over with sweet and sour notes. When smoked, a distinct purple-grape flavor rides an earthy foundation along with inklings of floral and pungency. This strain’s terpenes are deceptive in that they aren’t loud, but they are complex once you let them breath.
TIP: To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library page.
Effects: Starts in the head to melt away any uneasiness in life as it gently calms the body from head to toe. It’s quite balanced but favors the Indica just a little. No couchlock here, folks. This is a perfect strain for those who may need a solution for the day time. It’s not racy but it won’t knock you out either.
Duration of Effects: 2 hours
May Help With: Helped with PTSD and had a calming effect on IBS symptoms. May also help with overall mood, anxiety, stress, mild-to-moderate body pain, some forms of nerve pain, nausea, appetite (and more)
Cultivated with love and care. A subtle yet complex terpene profile with wonderfully balanced effects.
