Sugar Cookie (Grasshopper Wellness)Review

Appearance

A blend of medium greens with dark brick red pistils, this strain had a tight structure without being monolithic.  We appreciated that it was nicely dried but was still rather sticky, leaving a film of kief on the hands after being handled.  The harvest seemed a little bit early, as the majority of trichomes were clear or cloudy, with few visible ambers — there were no other grow-related flaws to speak of that we noticed.

Flavor

The initial flavor was much like the smell — a more flowery and smooth version of the lime-pine-sweetness combination.  As the taste progressed though, it took on more of a holiday spice + anise quality, with an interesting sharp muskiness.  The flavor degraded quite a bit th0ugh as it progressed, making us cough quite a bit and leaving a slightly funky aftertaste.  Flush-wise, it could definitely use some work, as the final ash was a somewhat murky dark gray for most of the review staff.

Euphoria

(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  General relaxation (both physical and mental), light pain relief, mood elevation, anti-anxiety, ocular attention, moderate appetite stimulation, and relief of minor stomach issues.

Overall

While a longer flush and a later harvest would probably make this strain an easy ‘A’ contender, it was still certainly in that realm due to its bevy of medicinal qualities.  The smell is something very unique that most of us hadn’t encountered previously, a very refreshing and complex aroma that reminded us of other strains but always threw a wrench into the mix with an unexpected whiff of something.  The effects were certainly Indica-dominant in the “stoned” vein where sitting on the couch relaxing and staring blankly at a movie seems like a great idea, making this a highly recommendable evening medication.  It’s great for unwinding at the end of the day without being incapacitated and serves to prepare the body and mind for a night of restful sleep.
