Juicy Fruit Medical Marijuana Strain Review

From: Medicine Man, LLC

Grade: A

Type: Mostly Sativa Hybrid of Thai origin

Price: $50/8th

Appearance: (10/10)  Simply put, this is the most beautiful-looking and unique sample we’ve ever seen.  The outside appearance is among the tops with its attractive array of green and purple coloring, copious trichome coverage, and great post-harvest care…  But the real surprise lies inside — lavender and mesmerizing orange-amber-purple “wizard globe” combination colors float throughout the trichome heads and even in their stems, appearing to suck the purple from the plant itself in areas.  This is the first time we’ve ever seen purple trichomes on this level — they appear both on purple and green plant surfaces and the purple seems to come in as they “amber”, with only a few actual amber heads seen on the sample… absolutely stunning.  The nugs themselves all have very sound structure with good density and what seemed to be perfect post-harvest care.  There may be a more visually-appealing sample of cannabis out there in the world somewhere, but we haven’t seen it.

**Check out the bonus camera shots and the embedded slideshow below the post for a collection of microscope photos of this amazing and unique sample.  All photos were taken with either our camera or our Veho Discovery 200X scope (on standard color/saturation settings), and none were modified aside from cropping and watermarking, as is always the case here at KR.**

Aroma: (8.5/10)  A tangy and sweet smell that reminded us of a combination of grenadine, fruit punch, and lemons — there is a slightly putrid quality to it while in the jar, but that fades when it’s ground up.  It was relatively pungent, definitely becoming more so after being ground while also unleashing a slight body odor funk.

Taste: (7/10)  Not as pleasing as the other “bag appeal” areas, the taste had an earthy/smoky element to it that killed a lot of the fruitiness.  That fruit flavor was an odd blend of creamy flavors (think pina colada) and darker fruits such as berries/plums.  The smoke was relatively smooth and not too expansive, making it an easy experience overall — the final ash was murky-looking though and suggested it could’ve used a better flush.

Effects: A wonderful Sativa effects package was started with pressure in the forehead area, a slight dizzyness/floaty feeling, an immediate rise in mood, and a buzzing energy throughout the body.  Our thoughts flowed freely (perhaps a bit too freely, it was almost frenzied at times) and we were able to focus when needed, feeling creatively stimulated and enjoying the visual/auditory accentuation this strain provided.  Borderline euphoric at times, this strain was superb when surrounded by friendly company and made us chatty and laughy.  This strain had us in a bit of a timewarp also, where we’d get into a task and look up and it’s an hour later… definitely a bit psychedelic.  A clean fade-out left us feeling normal as opposed to drained as many Sativas often can do.

Duration: Long, 2.5 – 3+ hours

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Energy, mood elevation, ocular attention, inspiration/motivation, anti-anxiety, and mild body pain relief.

Overall: While the iffy flush tempted us to lower the grade to an A-, we simply could not ignore the rarity and overall beauty of this sample, as well as its thoroughly-enjoyable effects package, which our staff all absolutely loved.  It’s not a super-potent A+ that knocks you off your feet, but it’s one of those meds that we could definitely smoke every day and feel capable, engaged, and positive in almost any situation.  We’re not normally the types who fawn over purple coloring as a rule, but these trichomes are something else entirely — it makes this sample infinitely appealing to us, and I imagine it will be sitting in the archives 5 years from now just so we can show it off… it’s THAT pretty.  We’ll always remember the day we scoped this one and saw the golden-purple “wizard globe” trichomes staring back at us…

Perhaps most importantly, here are some more pictures, including the scope slideshow!

    Beautiful stuff! Do the purple trichromes show up on a regular basis I wonder? Or was this just a fluke?

    I’ve talked to a few people who said they’ve seen it in certain strains and that it’s most likely a genetic trait. I’ve heard about it on Flo, Purple Passion, Purple Rhino IBL, and Purple Power. Thai genetics in particular seem to have lots of fun coloring (Flo), so this strain certainly makes sense given its Thai background. It may have been a fluke — we’re hoping to get something from the next harvest to see if it shows up again though, which will help kill the mystery.

    This one’s taste lasted mid-way through the bowl normally… it was above-average in the taste retention area and kept a slightly sweet tone down to the ash. Definitely the best Juicy Fruit I’ve had… and I can look at those purple trichome heads against green leaf surfaces FOREVER… so pretty.

    Ahh damn. I had such a raging weed boner until I read “..unleashing a slight body odor funk.”
