From Seed: 74 Days
Harvest Points: I chopped her at 5-10% amber trichs in a little over 2 months.
Dry Yield: I stopped weighing most of my grows but I know from looking at it in the Jars that I have a solid Ounce and a quarter and I’ve been smoking on it too. I had a good Ounce and a Half all dried and jarred.
The Growth: The Growth of this girl is awesome. Has a decent veg stretch and an awesome flower stretch too since she grows thick, fat buds with killer trich production. But I’ll be growing her again quite soon. That you can count on, she’s an excellent plant. Colors and flowers are beautiful. In a 2.2-gallon cloth pot, she did amazingly awesome.
The Smell:Use numbers 1-9 on descriptors that apply to the taste where 1 indicates a subtle presence and 9 indicates a very pronounced presence. [3] Sandalwood  [1] Diesel [6] Earthy [5] Liquorice [3] Mango [ ] Pepper [1] Blueberry [7] Cedar [5] Grapefruit [3] Grass/Hay [5 ] Mint [2] Mould [1] Skunk [1] Spice [3] Sour [2] Coconut [3 ] Pineapple  [8 ] Orange [2] Dairy/Cream 
Additional comment: When growing smelled a good bit like Fuel Lemony Citrus sweetness. With like a super sweet Honeydew rind – very awesome and hardy. Both early cutting smelled of a mellow fuel with a citrus and/or floral sweetness with a hardy lemony pine zip to it – extremely pleasant smell.
The Smoke: 
It’s a very mellow neutral smoke with a mild sweetness and has a sweeter earthy release that is very neutral. Not a heavy smoke. Lends very well to a more daytime medicine. If left to amber up it would be rather effective I’m certain.

[4-6] Dosage

Enter the number of hits taken to reach desired effects.

[6] Effect onset

Rate how quickly the effect hit from 1-10 immediate-major creeper.

It was fairly quick initially, but felt it gather over about a 5-10 minute period where you can really feel it sink in the bit more ya smoke. Which ya didn’t need a bunch really. I did, but the average person IMHO would only need a bit. Very Nice and relaxing too after work to watch a movie or TV, music…yup.

[7] Potency

Rate the potency of the sample from 0-10 none-devastating.

 It’ average strength med at low amber. But smoking a bit of it I feel confident in saying it would lend really nice to an excellent mid evening med as well the more amber you got.

 [2-3] hours

Indicate the number of hours the effects lasted.

For me it lasts me a solid Hour each time. Well-controlled intake. Smooth med.

[ ] Tolerance build up

Rate how quickly tolerance builds from 0-10 none-rapid.

 I tend to have a rather heavy tolerance once I complete a grow due to my issues and illness. But as I’ve mentioned it’s an excellent med that is great for day and will lend itself frigin awesome to mid evening meds too.

Do you personally consider this strain a keeper for long-term use?

– Yes

If you are a med user, describe briefly your health conditions and how this strain affects them? 


I am MS patient, chronic pain patient. Medical and recreational user.

The all cloudy samples were very nice. The first one was 100% cloudy. Or darn close to but I was tired and just feeling blah and it gave me some motivation to sit up in my chair and actually do a few small things. I was very nice. The pain relief was mild but it was there hands down and it was also relaxing somewhat so it was good for my back as well. 

The Second time I tried a sample at 100% cloudy trichs it lent to help me be a little more alert and helped me accomplish a little extra work with less pain and discomfort. I smoked again when I was done the work and was nicely buzzed with a mellow alert pain relief that was quite welcome, as well as very pleasant.
 She was harvested at 5-10% amber and freshly taken and dried the smells stayed similar to the Lemony sweet fuel. And carried over to taste except added a mellow hashy release – very nice with that Lemony sweetness. But effects were quite nice – a bit more on the pain relief side for my back and joints too. Not as great for joints, but really seemed to help my back for a daytime styled med (since that’s often what I’m looking for) for the person that’s hard to get motivated and needs a couple hours of good garden work meds.
But cured up some it really lends to a mellow alertness with and very nice pain relief ability for joint a little more now and for the back too. Headaches it works pretty ok for too btw. Nerve twitching it helps calm it s little bit and some muscle twitching it’ll help with to a fair degree too.

Final Comments: All in all I have to say it’s a very versatile Medicine that could quite easily be utilized by most anyone seeking a basic med for anxiety, to muscle relaxation and mild to moderate pain relief. And having given a good amount of thought about these Meds, I feel that IMHO if this were left to amber up roughly 50%, it would lend to and VERY excellent mid evening to late night smoke. And in edibles it would be truly wonderful as well. I’ve used it that way at 5-10% amber as well. And the effects described here are multiplied three times with a nicer buzz IMO. This is a Strain that you’re truly going to want to keep an eye open for, and add to you toolbox for your ailments. Best of growing everyone and be well.
