On Aeriz’ website, they describe their aeroponic growing method as follows: “In aeroponics, a plant is suspended in the air without the use of dirt or other grow mediums. Below the plant’s root zone lies a state-of-the-art nutrient delivery system. Oxygen-rich, nutrient-infused water is misted directly into each plant’s root zone on a precisely timed schedule.”

Phenotype Profile: Perfection in every way. Maximum density, large calyx structure, purps and dark greens abound with lots of trichs. I didn’t overexpose the photo (often done by weed photographers to highlight the trichomes) so you can see this flower in its full glory. When ground, the result is a pile of purple.
Bud Density: 5 [1-5]
Terpene Profile: Per this batch's lab report, here are the specific terpenes. The top three terpenes with the highest quantities present are highlighted in red text.
Alpha-Bisibolol 0.06%; Beta-Caryophyllene 0.57%; Elemene 0.64%; Fenchyl Alcohol & Fenchone 0.03%; Alpha-Humulene 0.16%; Limonene 0.37%; Linalool 0.16%; Beta-Myrcene 0.30%; Alpha-Pinene 0.03%; Beta-Pinene 0.05%; Alpha-Terpineol 0.04% (LK Pure Labs)
When I opened the container of this sample, I was bombarded with some of the most intense terpenes I’ve ever experienced: exceptional levels of bright, dank tangerine and orange citrus. Once ground, more of the same aromas and intensity. I tasted some of the raw, ground bud and it was incredible, fresh tangerine zest with sweet notes. When smoked, I tasted sweet and tart tangerine on a smooth cookies foundation. There was also some of that earthy purps in the mix. The flavors lingered on the palate. Over-the-top terpenes.

Effects: If you like Sativas, you’re going to love these effects. Lots of pleasant energy and focus that sits on a GSC stone. Think classic GSC forum cut stonage that trades off some of that high with a wonderful energetic component. Textbook expression of effects for this strain. Numbers mean nothing with terps like these.
Duration of Effects: 1.5 - 2 hours
May Help With: Helped with mood and energy. May also help with mild-to-moderate pain, social anxiety (in small doses), depression, stress, nausea, appetite (and more)
This flower is flawless and reaches the pinnacle of cannabis cultivation. There's no doubt that Aeriz has made some critical modifications to their cultivation. Outstanding work. A borderline "5-plus" flower.
