SnowWreck Medicinal Marijuana Strain Review
From: The Farmacy
Type: Heavy Sativa (Snow Cap x Train Wreck) – both are sativas known for potency and “speediness”
Price: $49 / 8th
Appearance: Compact dense buds. This is one of those that at first sight you’re kind of like uhh may not be too great.
Aroma: Snowcap is known for a minty smell but I doubt I would have picked that up without searching for it.
Taste: Similar pine to the Trainwrecks we’ve reviewed – a slight menthol.
Buzz Type: Strong energy inducement with a fair amount of body buzz. Carried some headiness too.
Buzz Length: Long. 2 – 3 hours (seemed to be longer through vaporizer)
Medicinal Use: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) No pain, lots of energy and clarity in thoughts. I noticed my heart rate was elevated about 2.5 hours into it, it may have been longer but I noticed at that point.
Overall: Really this bud took me off guard, I see buds day in and day out and this really didn’t seem too special, but it definitely was. Powerful head high felt immediately and just kept going and going. It also had some of the “flooring” effect found in the stronger diesel sativas and I will definitely pick this up again.
Grunk Medical Marijuana Strain Review
From: Medicine on the Hill
Type: Hybrid – Grape Ape (Indica) x Skunk#1 (typically heavy Sativa ranging in %)
Appearance: Beautiful, well manicured, crystal dipped buds. They were nice and dry and they had hints of the Grape lineage signature color.
Aroma: Very Grape – some small hints of the classic skunk scent.
Taste: Grape & Skunk (tasted more even split than it smelled)
Buzz Type: Instant starter that gave me a burst of energy, yet a bit too overwhelming to go out into the world with it at first. Fuzzy headed and a bit dopey, my workload for the day had to suffer a brief delay so could recollect my bearings (a good hour). When the “storm” calmed down a little I found no problem with function and motivation to get things done. Drained when done though.
Buzz Length: 2 ½ hours with linger
Medicinal Use: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Worked very well for muscular pain with some nerve assistance as well (spinal compression).
Overall: This is a top notch strain – great representation of its parents. It hits hard with huge expansion. It was strong but fun and made me want to go walking downtown. The only real negative thing I can say is I was left a little tired at the end of my session (the initial buzz is often the part people are looking for).
Diesel Dawg Medical Marijuana Review
From: Colorado Care Facility
Type: Hybrid – East Coast Sour Diesel x Chem 91 55/45 Indica to Sativa
Appearance: Different hues of green – large and well taken care of.
Aroma: Chemical pine & menthol fuel
Taste: A clean lemon (no astringent flavor common with the “cleaner” tasting strains) with good expansion
Buzz Type: A sharp, well adjusted buzz with lifted visual & auditory awareness. The wavy, happy feeling kept me on my feet with full coordination and drive as well as being mentally disciplined for writing and other seated activities. Maybe a little sativa dominance in this one, but a good mixture.
Buzz Length: Medium. 1.5 – 2+ Hours.
Medicinal Use: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Well recommended for fatigue and introversion with only mildly satisfactory nerve/bone pain relief. Muscle based (leg cramps and similar) were knocked out quite well. IBS was immediately relieved, but not much appetite stimulation.
Overall: Great bud, when I first hit it I could tell it was clean and well maintained throughout the grow. After hitting the vaporizer I had an immediate couch lock that lasted about 4 minutes. Then I was alert and happy doing just about anything, watching a movie or editing photos. Overall a great bud for varied situations, I would’ve liked to see a little more longevity for a higher grade.
Sweet Tooth Medical Marijuana Strain Review
Type: Hybrid – (ranges from sativa heavy to indica heavy depending on the seed/clone breeding) [Sweet Pink Grapefruit x DJ Shorts Blueberry] x Grapefruit
Price: Call to ask
Appearance: Not too special, kind of blah for these days. Was good and dry.
Aroma: Sweet and pungent almost like a good blueberry – berries in general.
Taste: Similar to smell, a sweet and sour tinge.
Buzz Type: Felt a little more sativa dominant. A nice strong start that made me kind of dizzy and admittedly aimed my mind in some strange directions. Two troughs and two crests in this wave, drowsy/lazy, then motivated…twice. While in a crest phase, I was able to play my musical instrument with noticeable skill and focus. The trough phases were better suited for the couch.
Buzz Length: Medium. 1.5 – 2 hours
Medicinal Use: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Didn’t really assist with my leg pains at all (mix of muscle and nerve). Good for focus and mental acuity, but those attributes are mostly appreciated while I’m getting good pain relief.
Overall: Sort of energetic but with the up and down it’s not one I would pick for pure energy with the other options out there. I’ve had better Sweet Tooth examples, like the one from Botanic Labs (though not reviewed here).
Urkel x O.G. Kush Medical Marijuana Strain Review
(Purple Urkel is commonly called Urkle or Erkle as well)
From: Colorado Care Facility
Appearance: Dark grayish green & purple, super dense and sticky.
Aroma: Chemical Kush – a blend of soil, fuel, and the familiar kush scent. (After this Urkel review we were very disappointed and stated we wouldn’t grab any Urkel sample unless it had a very strong purple/fruity scent. Reality is the Kush is just so dominant I can’t pick out the Urkel.)
Taste: Earthy Kush taste, a cleaner variety.
Buzz Type: A real creeper that took its time to reach its potential. It was a very subtle rise, so subtle that I didn’t even realize how affected I was. It was also a very relaxing and calming buzz to the point where you can easily lose track of time – at one point I hadn’t moved a muscle for an hour. I found this one to be like one big wave, dropping me down for the first half and rising back through the second. (Again, very contrary to the Urkle review previously.)
Buzz Length: Medium-Long. 1.5 – 2.5 Hours (vaporizer seemed to last longer)
Medicinal Use: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Great for anxiety and overall mood. I didn’t notice any pain which is odd as there is a snow storm moving in which usually results in my pain being amplified.
Overall: It’s official, the crossing of the two strains are better than the parts, with a B- and B+ combining for an A- grade. I think this is a great marriage of the two strains as they complement each other well with similar relaxing and calming attributes (reputation and our historical context – it is quite clear the specimen of Urkle we got from Plants 4 Life was subpar). I like this for someone who needs to relax for a few after a long day but needs to be productive afterwards (thank you kush) and I will definitely pick this up from CCF when available.
