Querkle Medical Marijuana Strain Review

From: Alternative Wellness Center

Grade: A-

Type: Indica-dominant hybrid

Lineage: Purple Urkle x Space Queen (Romulan x Cinderella 99)

Price: $40/8th

Appearance: (8.5/10)  This sample looked very Indica, with an array of dark green colors mixed with muted purple, all covered in an even layer of sparkly clear, milky, and amber trichomes (at about a 60/10/30 split, respectively).  The trim was right up our alley, showcasing the structure of the bud without completely shearing off all non-calyx material.  We didn’t have any real issues with this one, it was a great example of the strain and arrived intact, with a moderate stickiness and quality post-harvest care.

Aroma: (8.5/10)  A lightly skunky sweet grape candy aroma was present pre-grind, but it sweetened up further and picked up some floral notes post-grind.  It wasn’t the most pungent sample, and the aroma dissipated somewhat quickly after we ground it up.  Still, it showcased the Purple Urkle side of the hybrid perfectly.

Taste: (7.5/10)  This sample had both sweet grape and earthy grape qualities to it, with a light floral aftertaste on the first few hits.  The flavor degraded somewhat quickly, but never really got below average.  A smooth smoke that didn’t hit the throat hard, it did expand readily and still caused a moderate amount of coughing, especially once the greens were gone.

Effects: Depending on the time of day we chose to medicate with this one, its effects seemed to vary from slightly Sativa-dominant to highly Indica-dominant experience.  The start went straight to the eyes, making them red and low immediately, but not cloudy in terms of perception.  It built over the first 10-20 minutes, including strong full-body waves, a warming sensation throughout the head, and a strong tendency to stay seated.  Though we were sedentary almost the entire time, the majority of our staff was productive in moderately-complex work tasks, though very intense concentration would be a little out of reach while on this med.  Some time warp effects had time flying by, and by the end of the experience, it was somewhat tiring and most of our staff were ready for sleep, regardless of time of day.

Duration: 1.5 – 2 hours medicinal-level potency, 3 – 3.5 hours overall duration

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Mood elevation, appetite stimulation, body relaxation, moderate pain relief, sleep aid late, and ocular pressure fluctuations.

Overall: This was one of the better-looking Querkles we’ve ever come into contact with, with superb structure, a hearty stickiness to the cure that is often lacking in Colorado flowers, and great trichome coverage.  We really loved the smell and the effects, but the taste was just a notch below what we expected based on the lovely aroma.  This was a nicely potent example of an Indica-dominant hybrid, with early Sativa traits and a smoothly productive mental state blending with very strong sedative properties.  This one could work for a day of middling productivity at home, but we mostly suggest it as a mid-evening relaxer, as the latter half eases you into sleep.
