Flo (MariTrust)Review

Appearance

Like most examples of this strain, it’s simply beautiful to look at when it’s in your hand.  The collection of colors that Flo tends to display come mostly from the Purple Thai side of the family and include blue, purple scarlet, and even some pink hues — this one had all but the pink in one spot or another.  The structure was definitely Sativa, yet nicely solid, while the trim was adequate and didn’t detract from the experience at all.  We did find a few tiny seeds that developed and some of the outer trichomes were damaged, but on the naked eye type of level, it was nearly flawless.

Flavor

Like the smell, this Flo was one of the better examples of the strain in that it exhibited all of the notable characteristics in a very pungent and enjoyable manner.  The same anise-kissed berry sweetness hits the tongue on the attack, but the aftertaste is very spicy and musky (perhaps earthy… tastes of soil as well), hanging on the palate for several minutes after consumption.  The smoke itself was very smooth and actually seemed to soothe the throat thanks to the mentholated quality it had.  We did take slight issue with the flush, as the final ash was a medium-dark gray, indicating that it could’ve used a longer flush period.

Euphoria

(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Major mood elevation, sensory enhancement, muscle relaxation, mental relaxation, anti-anxiety, and some pain relief (one reviewer who is suffering from a broken tooth reported solid relief from that pain).

Overall

The bag appeal on this Flo is nearly perfect aside from the tiny seeds and the roughly-handled exterior trichomes… otherwise, it’s simply beautiful and smells/tastes amazing.  If you like Flo at all, this is a very good example of the strain in all areas, providing the stereotypical taste, smell, and effects that the strain’s become famous for.  This is a perfect daytime uplifter that serves to also ease body tensions and pain, making it a true hybrid feeling throughout the experience.  We may be a little biased towards liking Flo just because it’s such an aromatic and exotic-tasting strain, but it proves itself time and time again with its medicinal value and overall quality… this one from MariTrust continues that trend.
