Silver Buckeye

I had to take a friend to Anchorage to get his handlers card and after we visited Alaska Fireweed on 4th Ave.
As I and my friend are both friends with Ron Bass he selected one of his Calm N Collective strains to try.

Silver Buckeye has a very good appearance and delightful aroma when you open the bag, which at $75 for 3.5 grams was the most either of us have EVER paid for Buds, but that is what it is.

We were told by the delightfully attractive bud tender that this was a “Dummy” strain, that after a few hits you would start feeling dumb. OK, what the hell, we had all the important stuff finished so we could afford to get a little stoopid.

We went down by Ship Creek and found a quiet place to park (BECAUSE THERE ARE NO ONSITE CONSUMPTION AREAS!!) and loaded a bowl. Nice purply and sparkly goodness and the first toke was “Mmmm…OK.” and then on the second toke we both caught a good cough and decided that three hits was going to be just about right for the first go.

15 minutes later we were both well satisfied with the purchase (me more than him because he shelled out the dough!) and went about some Anchoraugua shopping for an hour or so. Before leaving for the Valley we pulled into a secluded spot that will go un reported (did I mention there is NO PLACE to legally smoke in Alaska other than YOUR HOME?) and finished off the bowl with a small kicker of fresh Silver Buckeye added in. Two good tokes and I was in the zone, a couple more and I would have been out looking for mushrooms in the woods for a while.

A hat tip to Ron Bass and the crew at Calm N Collective for a very nice strain, JDK Brands for good packaging and to Alaska Fireweed for having one of the best shops in Anchorage. We’ll be back! (My second time there now)

Greatland Ganja’s “Space Rip” from Bad Gramm3r

Strain: Space Rip

“Space Rip is a special phenotype of JTR. [Jack the Ripper] It is a space queen dominant throwback, so different from traditional JTR (which we grow and is great) that we gave it a nickname to differentiate it from JTR”
Greatland Ganja

Type: Sativa Dominant

Origin: Greatland Ganja from the Kenai through Bad Gramm3r just OUTSIDE of Wasilla. (No tax for you, BAD Wasilla! >:P)

Growing Medium: Hydro

Lighting: Those ladies basked in the light of T-5s for veg and 1000 watt air cooled HPS for bloom.G⅁

Nutrients: We used General Hydro for the nutrientsG⅁

Cultivator: Arthur Abel and our Cultivator Kenny were the primary cultivators. It was grown with love.” G⅁

Appearance: Small buds, as to be expected from a hydro Sativa Dom I suppose. Some nice sparkle.

Smell: A citrussy floral, inviting, nothing to worry you over carrying a bag in your pocket. The terpines are not trying to claw their way out of the bag. But they are there, where they belong until you come for them.

Burn: Nicely, seems to be clean, I’ll try and update after I try it in a joint. Bowl burned down to fine, white ash. >

Taste: Very good, sort a flowery affair that plays pleasantly over the taste buds.

Exhale: Earthy…quite different than the inhale, like all that flower power got sidetracked. Some peppery nummy goodness lingers long after the exhale.

High: Oh, that’s where that flower power went! Right there…right now…two hits in and “Uhm I forgot what I was going to say…”, “Oh yea, that…uh…what were we talking about?”. High, pleased to be here, it’s a good place…once I get accustomed to this one it might prove to be an excellent working mans high.

Manicure: Well done, Greatland has been doing very well in the trimming from the few samples I’ve seen.

Overall: I was hoping to find a good, uplifiting Sativa with the brightness and clarity that I love about good Sativas and it has it. The taste is very nice, those terpines that hang around mouth for a while reminding me that two hits got me to a good place and I should resist the temptation to go back in…aww, hell, I have to give the exhale another look…as long as I’m doing the Overall I really have to try just one more for the “overall” toke.

22.91% THC-A…Eeaaaaa yea…it works. 20.62 total THC so this should be an excellent vape strain. I’ll get back to you on how that worked after I squish and vape a bud.

Sour Diesel CO2 Concentrate

Strain: Sour Diesel Concentrate

Type: Mainly a Sativa – (believed to have descended from Chemdawg 91 and Super Skunk.)

Potency: Estimated 80% to 90% THC

Origin: Art Tic Jester

Creator: Northern Botanical

Method: CO2 Critical Extraction
Apeks Supercritical 1L machine, extracted at 1300 lbs, decompressed at 420
Yield is anywhere up to 25% of the dry weight.
The system will process up to 1/2 lb at a time.

Grower: Art Tic Jester – MatSu

Appearance: Think Caramel Carrot Soup

Smell: Bright and citrusy with more then a hint of carrots.

Taste: Excellent, milder than any BHO I’ve tried.

High: Just a Dab’ll do ya. This hits with an immediate impact, right to the brain.

Overall: A really exceptional product and perhaps the best use of trim that I have seen so far. I’m going to get a fresh coil for my dab pen and see how this does. It is a lot more viscus at room temperature then BHO so there will be no laying the dab pen down when it’s loaded. I’ll be striping a paper and rolling up a nice joint of this and it’s parent Sour Diesel for the weekend.

 

Purple Kush from NLCC/Medical Seeds

Never Smoke Weed with Willie Again
pk1STRAIN: Purple Kush
TYPE: Indica
ORIGIN: Medical Seeds
MEDIUM: Hydro under LED
NUTES: CLASSIFIED
GROWER: NLCC
APPEARANCE: Sparkly and tight, not rocks but certainly not fluffly nugs either.
SMELL: Musty dankness, a good but not bold smell
BURN: Clean
TASTE: As to be expected from a PK, rich and flavorful.
EXHALE: Terpines lingering on the tongue, resiny
HIGH: 4 tokes in and I am suspecting a creeper. 8 Pm and my first toke of the day. Pain subsiding under a slow cresting wave, not a head rusher but a solid body stone and a pleasant head buzz setting in.
MANICURE: Tight , not excessive, just enough guard left to hold trichs.
OVERALL: Quite like the Purple Kush that has been my mainstay for the last decade, solid performer, looking forward to some rosin later tonight, I’ll try and remember to post pics. 8.3 Overall

Strain Reports on Alaska Hemp (http://alaskahemp.com/420/category/alaska-hemp/strains/)


Valley Strain Report: Mango Tango v Purple Kush


mangoThe Mango Kush could be a great bud, I can see the popularity, the sample I got could use a little more time in my opinion Thu Apr 09 22-37-52as I’d like to see the trichomes cloudy to amber.

Nice crystals and the bud is tight and has a nice fruity aroma, and hits decent. standing alone it would rate quite well…but…

purpkAfghan Purple Kush, the OG of OGs, the granddaddy from the Motherland. Bred in the Hindu Kush and deemed fine enough that God built his Holy Anointing oil around it. The bud is dense. Not overly resinous as it could well be but sticky. pealing open a layer to release fresh aroma is a thrill, it makes you want to press the oil out of it and pour it over your head…go into a small, dark holy of holies and hot box the shit out of it. Thu Apr 09 22-51-50Done right this is one of the finest smoking experiences known to man. This sample was almost done right…again, I think I would have waited a week or so…but it still does the job gangsta’ style. I know 4 people growing this strain and two of them are doing it well, this is the best 4leafsample I’ve seen, dirt grow, full organic, HPS lights and subsonic lullabies.
