Forbidden Fruit

Description:

Forbidden Fruit has got to be one of the best strains fragrance wise. The terpenes within Forbidden Fruit smell of sweet cherry and strong citrus overtones. This is because Forbidden Fruit is a cross between Cherry Pie and Tangie. As one can expect from an Indica, Forbidden Fruit is a beautiful deep purple with few orange hairs across the flower. People say they experience a deep body high, which makes it good for relaxation. The THC ranges from 23%-27% and CBD less than 1%.

Review:

Fragrance:

The fragrance is unmistakeable, strong citrus but without the zinginess or tangy tones, if you will. The smell only can be best described as a grapefruit. There is a perfect mix of citrus, sweet, and floral scents. It should be noted that the city’s overpowers both scents. However, when you break open the bud the floral and sweet tones become stronger. There is no gas and no earthy tones.

Rank: 4.7 (out of 5)

Taste:

The inhale tastes like nothing, unless you take a large hit. Yet, on the exhale, magic happens. On the exhale the citrus and floral terpenes come out in full force. The best way to describe it is if you just got done smelling perfume. Most of the flavor is locked in the aftertaste. The aftertaste lasts around 30 seconds, maybe even longer. The flavor lasts the entire bowl, but gradually fades each time as one can expect.

Rank: 4.3 (out of 5)

High:

First noticeable change was I became thoughtful and alert. Second, I did not feel particularly motivated to do anything and experienced a light increase in mood. I just felt high, nothing to write home about. They high is light.

Mendo Breath

Description:

Mendo Breath is a cross between Mendo Montage and OGKush Breath. This strain is an Indica, you can tell by its aesthetically pleasing purple. The THC ranges from 19-20% and CBD less than 1%. People have said they can taste hints of vanilla and carmel. The effects have made people feel relaxed, happy, and euphoric. Interestingly enough, this strain is said to have been made specifically for euphoria.

Review:

Fragrance:

The obvious hints you get from this strain is earthy and sweet. It should be known that the fragrance is very lite. Upon first smelling the bud the earthy overtones are dominant with the sweet overtones being liter. I personally, could smell a slight hint of gas.

Rank: 3.5 (out of 5)

Taste:

The first hit is overpowered by the earthy terpenes, almost as if there was no other taste. It is not until you exhale that the sweet terpenes are experienced, although the earthy taste is still powerful. The gas is completely lost. Through the rest of the bowl the earthy terpenes are present, but the sweetness evaporates. The taste is lost extremely early and clearing the bowl is not advised.

Rank: 2.7 (out of 5)

High:

First noticeable feeling was the sensation of feeling free. I became lite hearted and giggly. I started having positive thoughts and the feeling of being down to earth. When thinking of situations in life I felt like I could rationalized them better.

Lemon Tree

Description:

Lemon Tree is a cross between Lemon Skunk and Sour Diesel. Its level of THC usually hits between 17- 25%, while CBD hardly clocks in at 1%.  A hybrid between Indica and Sativa, Lemon Tree’s structure is bushy with tall thin branches of even height. Users have experienced both energetic euphoria and relaxation.

Review:

Fragrance: Lemon Tree has a very pungent, gassy smell. Upon first smell this strain is heavy in lemon that almost seems to outrank the diesel. It is not until you break open the bud that the pungent gas smell of the diesel comes out in full force .

Rank: 5 (out of 5)

Taste: Smoking Lemon Sour Diesel is exactly what you’d expect. It tastes of hints of lemon with a full pallet of gas. The after taste is the same as the inhale and lasts a couple seconds. While the taste of lemon fades throughout the use of the bowl, the gas stays almost the entire bowl.

Rank: 5 (out of 5)

High: The high took effect almost immediately upon smoking. The high was very stereotypical of a Sour Diesel. I became very energetic and task focused. I did not get the relaxation body high that I seem to read about.

Rank: 4 (out of 5)

Score: 4.7 (out of 5)

Cannabis Sativa

One of the very first basic understandings an individual comes across in the cannabis industry is the difference between the three main types of cannabis; Indica, Sativa, and Ruderalis. If we could, for this post in particular, focus on Sativa.

Sativa Structure:

The structure of a Sativa cannabis plant is vastly different than the Indica variety. Sativa primarily grows tall branches that are generally thin. Each branch stemming from the main can be seen growing at similar heights. The leaves of Sativa cannabis are long and thin and are commonly said to resemble fingers. The Sativa variety have a longer flowering cycle as compared to the Indica variety. Contrary, to what one might expect from this flowering cycle, Sativa actually produces less per pound than Indica.

This structural difference can be directly linked to the location in which Sativa typically grew. As stated earlier, Sativa grows taller and has a much longer flowering cycle, making the Sativa varieties perfect for hotter and longer summers closer to the equator.

It would be almost impossible to talk about the effects of Sativa without mentioning cannabinoids and terpenes.

Cannabinoids:

The endocannabinoid system within the human body is responsible for interacting with cannabinoids. Although there are many cannabinoids, the two most commonly known are Tetrhydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). THC gives the user the psychoactive high most commonly associated with cannabis. CBD gives the user a body high associated with anti-anxiety and pain relief.

Terpenes:

As most would agree, cannabis has a very distinct odor, this odor is called terpenes. The terpenes can range in smell from fruity, citrus, earthy, and other variety of smells. Although the smell is generally how cannabis strains are distinctive from one another, the effects of terpenes are not yet fully understood.

Sativa Effects:

Sativa is most known for its buzzing mind high. Generally speaking, the Sativa varieties are lower in CBD and higher in THC. This gives Sativa a more mind high contributing to a feeling of being energized and focused. Some say Sativa cannabis sparks a bit of creativity upon use. Depending on the user, using Sativa before bed might give the user a slight case of insomnia. Therefore, the Sativa varieties are suggested for daytime use.

P.Hizzle’s Experience:

I have had an interesting relationship with Sativa cannabis. Earlier in my days of using cannabis, I was purely Indica. Ironically, the strain I became most proficient at cultivating was Sour Diesel. My original thought behind using cannabis was that if it didn’t knock me off my feet, it was not worth my time. Over the years, I became busier and ambitious, all of which Indica is a poor use for, so I secretly became a Sativa user. Sativa does not kill ambition and in some cases enhances the ambitious drive. I can smoke it during the day for the anti-anxiety effect while staying on my feet. To this day, I am a basic B**** for being known to primarily smoke Sour Diesel.
