Strain review by MediScrogs: Fairy Frost

Strain: Fairy Frost

Grower Name: MediScrogs

Medium: Oregon’s Only #4, a light mix of coco/peat to start

Nutrients: KIS Organics water-only soil in final pots

Lights type and schedule: 3 basic type LED panels 24/0 until day 32, then 18/6 to finish.

Days from Seed: 77

Harvest Points: 5 total harvests beginning around day 58 or 60. First two earliest harvests were for blending and freezing to consume raw in smoothies. Works excellent by the way! Mostly removed the smaller branches and lower nugs first, then later harvests at 63, 70, and 77 days for smoking nugs.

I really liked the day 70 cut for daytime use. It gives a perfect balance of head/body and gets me moving around on my feet and getting things done. Very motivating, creative.

The later cut at 77 was fully cloudy with a couple ambers, and gives a strong effect, but I lose a little of the motivation with it and prefer to sit down and relax. Very potent.

Dry Yield (grams): approx. 125 grams, estimated

Growth Comments: These seeds sprout super fast and are vigorous growers. I bent the top over to help the side branches and broke the main stalk. I tied it back together and the plant grew right through this although it probably affected the overall yield. Still yields very nicely! I think it finished with 6 or 8 good sized main branches about 1m tall, a good size plant. It seems to prefer a slightly lower ph than my other plants in same conditions. Even with this, what a performer, could have easily been more than 5oz without the hiccups. Very frosty, frosty colas.

Comments on smell (during growth, harvest, etc.): Nice aromas of wood and soft pine, cedar wood, and a bit of pineapple or citrus. When fresh harvested, it had a nice apple smell. As it cured it took on a wood and sourdough type smell, curing out softer and somewhat hazy smell.

The Smell: Haze, Pine, Cedar, Pineapple, Citrus

The Smoke: This one hits fairly quickly. Smoke is woody and some hazy details.

7 Smoke ability (Rate the smoke ability of the sample from 1-10 harsh-smooth)

5 Smoke expansion (Rate how the smoke expands in the lungs from 1-10 stable-expander)

The High: Strong, hits first with a good mental refresh. This is a good one when you want a head change and new trains of thought. Creative, break-through type high, accompanied with a good body relax. Stimulating but does not produce any anxiety or rush for me.

Address final questions immediately after effects have worn off.

Back pain, hypertension, depression, insomnia

Fairy Frost offers a lot of utility. Is great when I want a head change. It gives a powerful mental charge without being rushy or overdone. I really like this. Is paired with good body relax effects you would expect from Stone’s gear. I go for this one when I want some stimulation, but I also like it right before bed as it will overpower left over thoughts at the end of the day and lift you pleasantly into the clouds. I drift right out to sleep if I want!

Final Comments: I really like the effects on Fairy Frost, there’s some good mental stim and creativity without being overdone, a slightly hazy detail. I go for this when I want energy but it also works for me great as a nightcap. The day 70 cut gives me a perfect balance of body and creativity and is very motivating. The later cut is potent, it derails my focus a little bit with a very enjoyable potency.

The growth and production of Fairy Frost is very impressive, big yielding plants with a very strong, cut-through high.

    Thanks, @Stone , it was good advice from you to multi harvest. I was surprised I liked the earlier cut. It definitely did not look “harvest ready” to my eye. There’s a fair difference in effect between 70 and 77 on FF (for me ;)). Is really welcome here to have more choices on the med shelf. You can definitely get two plants for one by splitting the harvest. Thanks again for the great meds. :respect:

    Great grow and review.

    I have had that pheno before. It is pretty strong. The terpenes mellow out just like you described. I always think it has a creamy kinda honey suckle type smell, little musky/earthy with a twang of citrus. Flavors are rich and not so fruity, it’s as if the extreme frost gives the smoke a kief type of exhale, you can taste the potency. The flavor you described is a typical pheno I find but there is a pheno that has a nice bubblegum flavor, I’ve had it in green and purple. She is strong though whatever pheno you get.

    Beautiful grow. We enjoy watching your plants grow. Lol
