OG Kush Medicinal Marijuana Strain Review
Type: Hybrid. Sativa dominant (Felt like 30-40% Indica to me).
Price: $20/gram ($50 mix-n-match)
Appearance: Very crystally- big guard leaves, but still pretty.
Aroma: I found a light citrus with a spicy (garlic type) hint.
Taste: Some found lemon, others found only a tongue tingle. I wanted to say piney, but knew it wasn’t quite the right description to match the taste in my mouth.
Buzz Type: A rounded mix. Euphoric, but under wraps. External (hot face, energetic bursts) but also cerebral.
Buzz Length: Long. 2 hours. (Hour one is up, hour two was down).
Medicinal Use: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Most patients I’ve talked to get some pain relief and some muscle relaxation. It did not give me a heightened appetite that I noticed at all. I noticed a lot of pressure and focus in the eyes and sinus area.
Overall: There are so many varying pieces of information on what OG stands for some say Ocean Grown is the true meaning (Original Gangster, Organic Grown, Orange Julius, etcetera). Any way you cut it, people rave about the OG Kush. Yet, I’m a fan but I’m not sold. My wife noticed a social behavior or glitch that she wasn’t fond of (“I don’t think I like you to smoke that one…”) and I wasn’t sure I enjoyed the dichotemy of the buzz. I remained functional however, and it lasted a solid two hours.
Coup de Grace Medicinal Marijuana Strain Review
Grade: A -
Type: Hybrid. Sativa Heavy (Blueberry x Shishkaberry x Maui x ?) A20/Dr. Blaze confirmed a 4th but I can’t remember what it is, maybe a Haze. It has an 80/20 Sativa to Indica ratio.
Price: Check their website above (They are cheap)
Appearance: Beautiful. In plain sight it appears extremely white/light yellow. These pictures show that there really is a good amount of orange hair throughout. This strain will become very noticeable as it progresses and I have a feeling some folks will believe they are dealing with a “white” strain.
Aroma: A nice, strong aroma. While it was familiar I was unable to pick out the individual characteristics of the crosses, confirming this really is its own strain and positioned to grow.
Taste: The taste got me as an earthy piney taste when I was expecting a more fruity experience. Excellent expansion.
Buzz Type: Energy based Sativa buzz. Very easy to work and stay motivated, not so easy to watch a movie or relax.
Buzz Length: Long. 2 + hours
Pain Management: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Mixed. It gave me medium relief that lasted a very long time, while I was with someone who had extreme leg pain and was unable to get their desired relief.
Overall: This is a VERY interesting strain, one that I think has not quite reached its prime. A20 has done a great job so far, simply seeing one of these buds will juice your thoughts. It’s obvious they are on the right track, have picked an awesome combination of strains to cross, and most importantly, have a true medicinal focus for the outcome of the Coup de Grace. In my very humble opinion, they just haven’t reached the finish line with this one (maybe a cross back to a blue for additional pain management?)
Synopsis: Go try this one, now. You’ll want to tell someone someday that you were part of A20/Dr. Blaze’s awesome expiriment that shaped Colorado strains for the two-thousand teens!
Golden Goat Medicinal Marijuana Strain Review
From: Delta 9
Type: Hybrid. Strong Sativa Dominance. (Hawaiian Sativa x ISS x Romulan)
Appearance: Does possess a golden hue. Dry buds, well taken care of. Plenty of trichs and tendrils to enjoy.
Aroma: Smells like Durban Poison mixed with lemon juice.
Taste: A sharp taste when smoked, tingly with a brief pine needle on exhale.
Buzz Type: Quick and strong while it lasts – mild paranoia. Sativa high, heart rate increasing.
Buzz Length: Short. 1 – 1.5 hours
Medicinal Use: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Certainly for appetite creation. Worked for neck pain, but it didn’t last long.
Overall: I like the Golden Goat, strong sativa that would make it very difficult to sit and watch a movie, or sit period. It could have lasted longer and not had such a peak and valley. A nice smelling, euphoric strain that may be utilized for short powerful bursts.
From: Delta 9 (JLP’s Juliet)
Type: Hybrid (C99 femal x NYC Diesel male)
Appearance: Nice, not the prettiest but well manicured and dry.
Aroma: Very pleasant following grind. Familiar but not easy, maybe a sweet dried berry.
Taste: : Still berry taste but more of a potpourri when smoked. Lasting after taste.
Buzz Type: Energetic and talkative, could be motivated to get up and go, but also a perfect watch a movie strain. Comfortable in public.
Buzz Length: : Medium. 1 – 1.5 hours with a half hour of lingering effect. (Seemed to last longer when Vaporized?)
Medicinal Use: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) ) Would suggest to help with anxiety and antisocial ailments. Some mild pain relief…or forgetting.
Overall: Really like this specimen, and the name is fitting. You can take her on any date you like – active, chatty, or movie. Can’t ask for much more, except a longer buzz length.
Bruce Banner #3 Medical Marijuana Strain Review
From: Delta 9
Type: Hybrid, (Strawberry Diesel x OG Kush)
Appearance: Light green buds that were covered in crystals.
Aroma: Diesel, hash and a slight fruit which is no shocker considering the strains that went into this hybrid.
Taste: Soil, with a little sweetness.
Buzz Type: Pretty intense at first with a relaxing finish.
Buzz Length: Long. 2 – 2.5 hours.
Medicinal Use: (We are NOT doctors – personal OPINION only) Worked very well for leg, extremity nerve and muscle pains.
Overall: The only bad things I can say about this bud is that I always wanted more and I wish it lasted a little longer. I had an insatiable appetite for this strain. This strain has everything I like in a bud, it comes on strong (almost lock the door turn off the lights strong), then turns energetic then a relaxing finish. This strain has a nice expansion that makes you cough but not to much. The buds are covered in trichomes and the buds are very well manicured. I was equally impressed that one of the owners of the shop created the Bruce Banner strain and has a degree in Botany. The owners of the shop are definitely cool people and I would say this is one of my favorite spots.
Reason: This particular crop of the BB#3 isn’t quite what we previously reviewed. While this strain is still AMAZING and should be picked up when available, this grow didn’t produce the same power. We found the Jack Flash was having a stronger effect across the board, multiple tests confirmed this across all of our reviewers. The smell was still perfect, one of the very best there is, but it seems maybe the nutrients weren’t fully flushed because not only did we get the trademark “firecracker popping” when the bowl was lit, but we also missed the wonderful taste. This one was a little soapy tasting. Hey, we understand it’s hard to live up to the best of the best, so we aren’t disappointed at all. The fact remains, this strain is at the top with the best in the world in our eyes, but the pent up demand and time pressures seem to have affected this harvest.
UPDATE 9/2/10: As we have already re-reviewed and lowered the overall grade of this strain, we felt that it was time to pull it from the A+ listing on our site and average it out to an A. We wanted a fresh start with A+ grades, and though the first batch of Bruce Banner #3 certainly earned its A+ at the time, our standards have since changed and due to the availability of the strain, we have not been able to re-review it with our current three-reviewer methodology. The historical A+ remains, and the Bruce will always be one of our favorites in Colorado.
