Skunk 1 x NL #5 Medical Marijuana Strain Review

From: Mile High Medical

Grade: B-

Type: Hybrid [Skunk leans to sativa side and Northern Lights is indica]

Price: $40/8th

Appearance: (5/10) This sample was a bit too whispy and extremely dry.  It didn’t look bad, just average for medicinal grade marijuana with a low trichome count.

Aroma: (6/10)  Earthy and fruity, some of the classic NL smells, but not the skunk we love.

Taste: (5/10)  It was very smooth and had average expansion, but the taste was very muted.  Woody, earthy, spicey.

Effects: Body high and medicinal effects are the dominant experience.  For 15 – 20 minutes it feels like this strain is working its way to the top, but you never end up reaching it.  The skunk sativa doesn’t present itself very well in tis combo and the come down is quite tiresome.

Duration: Short.  1 – 1.5 hours

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Insomnia, muscle relaxation.

Overall: The reviewers unanimously felt that this strain should have lived up to its cross a little better.  Nobody really picked out the skunk in this cross, but everyone felt the heavy Indica effects and come down.  This wasn’t bad medication, it just wasn’t as good as it could have been.
