Guest review by Calvin Kushman.
From the clipped stem, I smell citrus, plums, grapes, sweetness, sage, parsley, and a faint note of mint. Taking a cold draw from the joint tastes like cold paper with a hint of mentholated grass.
At $15.75, I expect this to be a comfortable high. I have heard good things about this strain even from people who don’t usually smoke hybrids.
TIME TO LIGHT UP:
At first light, the citrus fights the sage for the shining spotlight on the inhale. All the other fruits follow parsley to party backstage. I can only notice them after the exhale.
Smoke production is normal. The char line starts out even but is quickly running on one side. I touch up with my lighter. Now it’s burning even, with a long piece of red hot ash sticking out.
Flavors sweeten up a bit at the halfway mark. Citrus and plum seem to have gotten drunk and are trying to double penetrate the parsley from behind.
Things are getting hotter, and the ash still hasn’t dropped yet. I’m about to grab the roach clip when the ash suddenly falls.
The paper is sticking together and is very difficult to hit now. I drop the remainder of the roach into the bowl of my bong and finish it off.
The last flavors are reminiscent of sweet tree fruits in the summertime. And burnt paper.
There’s a slight buzzing sensation felt from within my inner ear. It seems to have a calming effect over my brain. I move my head from side to side so I can feel the rice krispies effect (Snap, crackle, pop) in my neck. Ah…relaxation begins.
I really like this Sunset Sherbert. The sweet flavor is light and the citrus/sage notes create a refreshing sensation in the mouth. I want to say that it’s like drinking cold iced tea after walking for miles in the heat of summertime. Although, thinking about that has suddenly dried my mouth and tongue. I want to cough but I’m afraid of tearing my now parched throat.
Most of the hybrids that I have smoked before gave me a headache followed by extreme hunger pangs and ended with the undead zombie persona that many stoners go through at least once a week.
“Phil, I can’t think of much else to say. I want to tell you about cool things I did while I was high but really all I did was look at internet porn and browse the list of local escorts for a couple hours. I’m stuck at another writing bloc. What should I do? How should I end it?”
You ended it just fine, Calvin.
Left to right….Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid:
From Green Doctor Network:
“Sativa strain types are known to produce an uplifting and cerebral high that is typically very energizing and stimulating. Sativa are known to make you laugh uncontrollably or engage in in-depth conversations about the meaning of life. These strains typically cause you to analyze the human experience and think creatively, which makes Cannabis Sativa very popular among philosophers, artists and musicians. Some Sativa have even been found to enhance lights and sounds, making music, movies, and the rest of your surroundings more vibrant than ever before.”
“The effects produced by Indica strain types are very relaxing and narcotic-like, typically providing a full-body, or “couch-locked” effect. Indica are perfect for those days spent curled up on the couch watching TV, or surfing the web. However, most people use Cannabis Indica after a long day at work to relieve stress, provide full-body pain relief, and help them fall asleep at night.
“Indica strains are ideal for chronic pain, muscle spasms, anxiety, nausea, appetite stimulation, and sleep deprivation. Individuals who suffer from diseases like multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, lupus, sleep apnea and insomnia tend to benefit from the effects of Cannabis Indica.”
“There are a wide range of cannabis strains in between Indica and Sativa. These strains are known as “Hybrids” and show traits directly related to the genetics in its lineage. Hybrids can be broken down into three basic categories:
1). “Sativa-dominant Hybrids: Cerebral high with a relaxing body effect. Provides physical and mental relief.
2). “Even Hybrids (50/50): Ideal strains for people seeking a perfect balance of head and body.
3). “Indica-dominant Hybrids: These strains provide a full-body pain relief, with a relaxing head high. Recommended for nighttime use to go to sleep, or daytime relief from minor pain. These strains are perfect for patients who suffer from all types of autoimmune diseases as well as insomnia or depression.”
According to Popular Science:
“If you’re an adult who has smoked marijuana in the past year, you’re one of about 30 million Americans who has done so, according to a new survey by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA). That’s 9.5% of our population.”
And did you know that there are hundreds more weed review sites than cigar review sites?
THIS IS NOT A RECOMMENDATION TO CONSUME ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES. I am simply trying to educate and shine the light on the medical uses for marijuana. We currently have 25 states that allow legal weed dispensaries in the United States. There is a lot of enlightenment in not only those states…but the other 25 who make it a misdemeanor to a felony for possession. If you choose to use medical marijuana, please do all the research you can before deciding on what is best for you.
Remember…Never smoke cannabis and drive. It is illegal the same as driving drunk in the law’s eyes. Not to mention how dangerous it is. Even if you are only driving 5mph because the cannabis has made you paranoid.
