Gnarley Marley from New Age Medical
Strain: Gnarley Marley
From: New Age Medical
Pickup Date: 6/8/2011
Inspection Status: Pass
This sample passed pest and mold inspection with no signs of trouble, and was very frosty and potent-looking with the naked eye. Though our sample seemed to contain some “larfy” lower buds, the trichomes were mostly well-preserved (~75% retaining heads), if a little early harvest-wise, though that may have been intentional to accentuate the Sativa qualities. The buds were rather shaggy with guard leaves, but those leaves were covered in short trichomes, so it wasn’t a huge problem for us. No signs of any other problems with this one, it was well-grown and well-handled.
A sweet, tangy, fruity, tropical type of scent greeted us upon cutting open the sealed gram bag it came in, bringing to mind mango candy. The aroma is nicely pungent pre-grind, but definitely increases in pungency after grinding, with some additional flowery elements coming out of the background. The flavor wasn’t quite as nice, only giving a strong flavor on the first 2 hits and then converting to a smokey and somewhat harsh smoke for the remainder of the bowl. It was a lightly sweet and mentholated flavor with hints of lime that didn’t really match the aroma. The final ash was a medium gray with some white, showing a solid, but not great flush.
