Strain Lineage: Afghan > Kush
Pigment: Light – Medium Green with bright orange pistils.
Ash Color: Dark brown plant matter. Dark grey ash
Aroma: I had to sniff the bag a couple times to make out what the aroma was. Off the top my nose picked up something sweet and creamy like caramel milk chocolate. I picked up the scent of blueberries, and subtle spice.
Trichomes: Under the microscope on the exterior of the bud we see a lot of the trichomes are missing their bulbous tops, and more than some are creamy, and amber in color. In the interior of the bud, we see a lot of the heads are also amber. The population could’ve been better.
Trim: very well, tight to the bud.
Duration: 2 – 2.5 hours
Climax Duration: 20 mins – 1 hour
Initial: When I lit the spliff I recognized how the delicious spicy and sweet flavors reminded me of a gentle and delightful melody. In my opinion the combination of flavors reminded me of my favorite Tim Hortons coffee – a white-hot chocolate with a chai tea bag and a shot of caramel. The spice from the beta-caryophyllene was subtle, and it was accompanied by linalool, and myrcene which brought a sense of relaxation. The alpha-pinene, myrcene, and linalool brought out the sweetness of the herb.
Mid: I suddenly had the urge to do research. I was more focused on researching than enjoying the rest of the spliff. I wasn’t very social or intrigued by my surroundings. I was heavily tuned into finding out answers to multiple different types of questions like: ‘what are the terpenes found in grabba’, ‘how does the brain look when you’re smoking’, etc… I found myself to be hyper curious and asking a lot of questions.
End: The end of my high I felt a faint goodbye. The high itself didn’t last very long but perhaps that’s because I didn’t smoke the entire spliff. Once I noticed how the flower was burning, I wasn’t very intrigued to continue the rest. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the moment of complete engagement with my research I just wish it would’ve lasted longer.
Flavor: The flavors was a nice blend of sweet and spicy flavors which resembled a chai tea bag in a white-hot chocolate with a caramel shot. the flavors weren’t overly exciting which was indicative of the Afghan dominant lineage.
Packaging: It is a small pocket-sized green package with a trick seal lock. I think it does a decent job of maintaining the buds integrity
Activity Pairing: One-on-one time, doing homework or meditating
Who We’d Suggest For: an introverted person, someone who is creative and looking to engage with their craft. I would also suggest this to people who want something like a shot, high which isn’t long lasting.
