Though we’ve been lucky with the weather in Madrid this year, October has arrived, and that means this warmth won’t last much longer. With the arrival of Autumn come customary house-bound Saturdays sheltered from the worsening climate. What better way to help you settle into that gaming session or Netflix binge than a nice hit of pure indica Chocolate Chunk? A name with a lot to live up to (chocolate chunk anything is likely to be high on any smoker’s munchie list), this flower is as rich and satisfying as it’s calorific namesake. Not a strain to casually puff on mid-morning, make sure you have a clear schedule before you light this one up. From the first hit, you can tell it’s an Indica, and over-indulgence on this potent bud will definitely lead to a couch-lock. The resulting body high is perfect for any aches and pains you’re feeling, and for those of you who suffer from insomnia, this can make the perfect sleeping aid. A sweet, earthy smelling bud burns off a thickly pungent fume, sour and heavy. Chocolate isn’t just a name, there is a definite cocoa edge to the smell, though be warned that the smoke can be slightly harsh to inhale.
The Original Grandaddy Purple, was introduced by breeder Ken Estes in 2003 in the San Francisco Bay Area, has become a classic in american dispensaries as one of the best purple Indicas available on the market.
It has a potent psychoactive effect, offering to the smoker a mixture of cerebral euphora and physical relaxation.Grandaddy Purple (GDP) is a cross between the renowned californian Purple Urkle cut – that transmits its beautiful colours and fruity flavours – and the legendary Big Bud strain , which improves yields and bud density.
Plants usually develop purple tones from the 6th week into flowering except when temperatures are too high. Once harvested, buds are similar to precious stones coated with resin glands . The smell and taste of Original Grandaddy Purple remind of ripe grapes and wild berries.
If one day you should happen upon an old friend offering you something called “green poison”, it may give you pause for thought. Though if it comes wrapped in a skin or stuffed into a pipe, smelling sweet and flowery, you’re likely in for a treat!
Green Poison is a potent Indica, great for those cold evenings parked on the couch in front of your favourite streaming service. This bud takes a few hits to kick in and is a bit of a creeper, but once it does you’ll start to feel those familiar Indica effects. A heavy, numbing feeling spreads through the body, relaxing the muscles and making sure you won’t be standing up any time soon. A great choice to help deal with sleeping problems or stress, this won’t be poisoning anything other than bad vibes.
Not a good idea to smoke during the day for exactly this reason, make sure you’re comfortable and fully stocked up with supplies. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
The plant itself smells flowery, with that unmistakable skunky undertone so many smokers are familiar with. Once lit up and inhaled, Green Poison hits you with the strong earthy flavours of pine, and that skunky smell carries over to the taste.
Blueberry Haze. If there was ever a more perfect combination of words in the English language, I certainly haven’t heard them. If you’re looking for a strain with a fruity flavour that matches its clean, analytical effects then look no further!
This is a Sativa-dominant hybrid that is a perfect compliment to any menial tasks that lie before you, with an energetic, flowing high that is felt within the first few tokes. A nice flower to smoke in the day if you don’t over-do it, though getting greedy with this one definitely activates its Indica side. Like the pie that is its namesake, too much Blueberry Haze might leave you parked on the couch, immobile and wondering why you never learned any self-restraint growing up. Just remember its reputation for potency and plan accordingly. If you smoke a lot, you’ll definitely want to have finished all those essential jobs for the day!
Though respect the plant and you’ll be rewarded with a happy, euphoric feeling that is perfect for sharing with friends. Though you might not actually want to share, as this bud tastes so fruity fresh that you may find you keep most of it to yourself!
Before reviewing the strain. A short introduction about Mr Jack Herer. Jack Herer ( June 18, 1939 to April 15, 2010), sometimes called the “Emperor of Hemp”, was an American cannabis right activist and the author of ‘The emperor wears new clothes’, a book which in 2016 was in its twelfth edition after having been continuously in print for 31 years—frequently cited in efforts to decriminalize and legalize and to expand the use of hemp for industrial use. Herer also founded and served as the director of the organization Help End Marijuana Prohibition (HEMP). The Jack Herer Cup is held in Las Vegas each year to honour Jack Herer.
This strain is often found both as a hash extraction as well as the weed. The strain is sativa dominant. The strain was developed by sensi seeds combining a haze hybrid with a cross of Northern Lights and #5 y Shiva Skunk.
75/25 indica-dominant strain that will satisfy your need for potency as well as flavour. The flavour is quite distinctive with a woody flavour and a touch of lemon. The Kosher Kush from DNA Genetics teamed up with the Nicole indica from Marimberos to create this dynamic variety. Deep relaxation overtakes the body, leaving the mind calm and introspective. Its buds bloom with chunky calyxes that may take on a stunning blue hue as they mature, depending on the phenotype. A delight for novice cultivators, Nicole Kush is a hardy, low-maintenance plant that gives way to large yields so long as it’s raised indoors, in a greenhouse, or in a warm Mediterranean climate.
Bubba kush is a predominantly indica strain. It is renowned for its heavy tranquilising effects. It is one of the the clearest headed indicas. It gives a very slight head high which is just enough to get you feeling elevated. It’s not a very euphoric experience, but it gets you in a different mental space and improves your mood greatly. The flavour is sweet with a taste of chocolate and coffee which is most noticeable when you exhale. The appearance of the bubba kush plant is of a bulky bud structure with colours ranging from forest green to deep purple.
The genetic origins of bubba kush are not certain but its form would suggest it is of afghani descent. The breeders story is that it was developed in 1996 when an OG kush hybrid pollinated an unknown indica strain from New Orleans. The mother plant was Northern Lights but the genetically ambiguous indica was just called ‘bubba’. Bubba Kush has flourished from its California roots ever since.
Its main effects are relaxation, contentment, it can make you feel sleepy and hungry (good ole munchies). Negatively it produces a dry mouth, dry eyes, can make you feel dizzy, it can also have a slight paranoid effect, and can produce headaches.
Mandarin (Kush) is a slightly Indica dominant strain (60% Indica 40% sativa).
The first thing that is very noticeable about this strain is the smell, it has one of the most distinctive citrus smells, and you can really smell the orangey mandarin smell. This continues when you smoke it, the taste is very definitely citrus (much more so than some of the lemon varieties). It is one of the smoothest strains and the citrusy, orangey, mandarin taste makes it a very pleasant smoke.
The effects are as to be expected from a predominantly Indica hybrid, however, the 40% sativa means that it is quite a good strain to have during the day as it doesn’t leave one too ‘relaxed’. The high is experienced after the first couple of drags and continues for some time. All in all it is a very pleasant smoke.
Sharing a name with a border-sitting global city, you’d be right in thinking this strain is a heavy-hitter. Even the most seasoned smokers out there will find this almost pure sativa to be a potent delight.
A strong Sativa, the experience with Tijuana is head-heavy. A creative, mind-expanding high follows soon after the first toke, and you’ll find its effects lasting for a long while after you’ve finished smoking. Though it won’t put you to sleep, this isn’t a strain to smoke if you have anything important that needs doing. A strong haze-like feeling can mean that you won’t be performing any attention-demanding tasks after partaking.
Not as flavour rich as some other strains, Tijuana is still a pleasant smoke. Pack it in a pipe and put on something psychedelic.
