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.

Matanuska Medicine Woman’s Citrus Farmer

Strain: Citrus Farmer (Skunk Tangerine x Grandpas Breath F2)

Type: Afghani/South Africa roots with Granddaddy Purple (GDP) x OGKB (OG Kush Breath) on one side and Skunk Tangerine indica on the other.

Origin: Dungeon Vault Genetics

Medium: Coco

Lighting: HPS phantom lights

Nutes: grown with canna coco

Grower: Matanuska Medicine Woman

Appearance: Tight and sparkly.

Smell: The smell claws it’s way out of the bag, pungent citrus diesel smells make themselves quite known. This stuff gives you fair warning of what to expect before you even break open a bud.

Burn: Even, nice light ash. Well flushed.

Taste: The smell was a warning, it tastes a lot like it smells. I’m trying to find good things to say about the almost overpowering dank oily shop rag sqeezins mixed with lemonade made from old socks. But it gets better.

Exhale: Something certainly transpires while this stuff lingers in your lungs. Bright citrus with a mild muddy earth…gone is the Diesel, I wonder where to?

High: It seems to approach like a long train, you can just feel it down deep before you can hear it rumbling down the tracks, then you can hear the Diesel engines roaring and pretty soon it’s on you, and before you know it your sitting in a box car, along for the ride. Get comfy.

Manicure: Excellently performed.

Overall: I really like this strain for the quality of the high it provides but I need to find a way to suppress some of the Diesel taste on the draw and bring up the Citrus, I’ll try squishing a nug and see if that does the trick. There is another strain to be reviewed soon with a worst taste…or perhaps I’m just getting spoiled…this joint has misplaced itself twice before it is 1/2 gone now…bad weed! Well, good weed actually, pretty damn good weed, and even the taste seems to…no…wait, yea, it’s still there, dark and low like Texas Radio…crawling up out of the citrus bottoms like a toad croaking out love songs.

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.

 

Dark Angel

Strain: Dark Angel

Type: 50% Indica / Sativa – (Cheese X Jack Herer)

Potency: Estimated 15% to 20% THC

Origin: Crop King Seeds

Medium: Soil

Lighting: 1000w HPS

Nutes: Sensei bloom

Grower: Arctic Jester – MatSu

Appearance: Tight bud, nice trichome representation.

Smell: Very nice heavy Limonene, not a skunk but certainly not Hay.

Burn: Clean and even

Taste: Sweet earthy draw, nutmeg aftertaste lingers on the tongue.

Exhale: Wait…what…ohhhh…yea…there it is…a little expansion, some spiciness, a head rush.

High: I can’t remember if I had any notable pain a few minutes ago, I’m pretty sure I did but it is all better now. It rolled on fast and seems to reaching a plateau about 4 tokes in. Not couch locked certainly, I might go out and dance in the yard. (An or two later and I’m still sitting here, chair locked.)

AllBud” – allbud.com

Manicure: Very tight hand trim.

Overall: An upper mid grade to lower Top Shelf, quite nice stone in body and brain, a well balanced strain, but Jack is always a good performer and cheese seems to be a popular performer for crosses.

From Crop King Seeds: “An excellent strain to chill at home or for moderate pain relief while allowing for mind exploration. The leaves will be dark green and minimal, while the nuggets will be compact with THC crystals and aromas of coffee and nutmeg.

 

Strain Review: Sour Diesel

Space rip

Sour DieselStrain: Sour Diesel 

Type: Sativa Hybrid

Origin: Cali Connection

Medium: Hydro

Lighting: LED

Nutes: CLASSIFIED

Grower: Northern Lights Cannabis Company

Appearance: Tight, sparkly, very dense buds

Smell: Earthy, almost a chocolaty smell, very inviting, can’t really find the “skunk” heritage on the sniff test.

Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel

Burn: Clean, thick and flavorful inhale.

Taste: Rich, I can feel it coating my tongue, very nice promising flavor that does not disappoint when it gets to the high.

Exhale: Please remember to do that.

High: YES, there is a serious high that starts before you remember to exhale. Very cerebral, a good “Let’s get’er done” high. My mind does tend to wander a little (4 days I’ve been trying to get this review out)  because I keep thinking of better things to be doing at the moment, or see a funny cat meme and end up watching 30 minutes of Darwin Award videos.

Manicure: Tight, no fluff, no scruff, just the good stuff.

Overall: Solid 9, a performer that does not have me waking up with keyboard imprinted in the side of my face. I’m told that after a few years regular users report some jitters and anxiety from this strain that does not happen with NY Diesel so it should be put in a rotation with other strains if your going to become a constant consumer.

I pressed out some rosin to run through my new DipStick, not a real gusher but a decent press out, a second press would bring a little more, and a 3 ton press would really do the trick. Excellent L Limonene dominant terps coming off the pressed and decarbolated rosin/bud.

Purple Kush from NLCC/Medical Seeds

Space rip
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
