K2 Medical Marijuana Strain Review

From: Alternative Wellness Center

Grade: A-

Type: Mostly Indica, supposedly a fruity-tasting branch of the Dutch-born White family of strains.

Price: $50/8th

Appearance: (9/10) An extremely appealing sample to the eye, this one had an exquisite manicure and no real visual flaws to be seen.  Its super generous trichome coverage and classic “Christmas tree” shape and accompanying density were well-liked by our reviewers.  Color-wise, it’s a blend of pale frosty greens with clusters of orange pistils spread all over the place.

Aroma: (7.5/10) This one was a sweet soil/earthy-dominant smell with a slight sharp citrus and chemical hit that we enjoyed quite a bit.  It made me crinkle up my nose when smelling it and was thought to be a fairly uncommon smell by our review panel.  While not a strain that fills up the room with its scent, it was above average in pungency.

Taste: (7/10) The dominant taste experienced was a slightly sweet earthy taste with a sort of cedar/woody quality.  This strain was unusual in that it retained its taste as it was exhaled, keeping the same sweetness and earthy/soil back note.  The smoke was moderately harsh, probably in part from the thick trich coverage and expansion, but it was thoroughly appealing.  It seemed to have a solid flush, as it burned to a mottled gray/white ash and didn’t have any chunks that resisted burning.

Effects: While one reviewer reported a simply calm and fairly clear-headed high, the dominant perspective was that this one was highly medicinal and rather heavy.  Reported effects included heavy eyes, a “low” feeling throughout the experience (like everything felt literally lower, like sinking into the surroundings), and a reduction in focus and most mental faculties.  Despite its heavy and at times overwhelming feeling, this strain did wonders for the muscle and nerve pain of the review staff.

Duration: Medium, 2-2.5 hours

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Muscle tension, muscle pain, nerve pain (fibromyalgia, etc.), sleep aid, anti-anxiety.

Overall: This strain provided a rather strong and heavy Indica high that did a great job with day-to-day aches and pains as well as more serious pain.  Its extremely relaxing high and sleep aid tendencies would make this a superb nighttime strain after an active day when sore muscles need relief.  The look, smell, and taste were all above average, but this strain was about the experience more than the sensory qualities.  While a new patient or someone who can’t handle strong indicas may overdo it easily, the worst that would happen is that they’d find the bed a few hours early, most likely while feeling nicely pain-free.
