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.

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.

Grape God by GrizzWeed

ggSTRAIN: Grape God
TYPE: hybrid

MEDIUM: Soil

LIGHTS: MH/HPS/T-8’S
NUTES: Private reserve, Family recipes
GROWER: GrizzWeed

APPEARANCE: hard, firm and dense
SMELL: Sweet, fruity and yet floral

BURN: Slow and even leaving a light grey to white ash at finish
topshelfsmokinsunsmTASTE: Distinctly sweet and fruity draw almost juicy. A robust flavor
EXHALE: mild light, excellent fruity aftertaste

MANICURE: High and tight but still leaving enough of the sugar leaves to add to the flavor.
OVERALL: An all around great smoke for either getting things done or for just a relaxing evening with friends

 

gg1-2015This is one of the top strains to be found in Alaska currently, The potent BC God crossed with the most excellent Grapefruit was a masterstroke and it is delightful to see this out in the hands of great horticulturists like GrizzWeed.

While GrizzWeed is a serious cultivator even in the hands of a novice first time grower I have been amazed at the yield and potency of this one.

Considering several encounters with this strain over the last year, each being a delightful surprise, and each encounter being with a different grower, I have decided that this is the best overall strain I have seen in 2015.

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

Seriously Happy

Strain review: Seriously Happy

3rd prize in the category: ‘Sativa / Grower’ at the IC-420 Cup 2015 in Amsterdam

seriouslyhappy1Strain: Seriously Happy

Type: Sativa hybrid, F1-hybrid, Sativa/Indica Hybrid

Origin: Serious Seeds, Warlock x AK47, grown locally from seed

Medium: Hydroponic

Lights: LED

seriouslyhappy2Nutes: CLASSIFIED

Grower: NLCC

8.0 / Appearance: Frost! Any more frost and it would be hard to see the buds under there! Not snowy, but the most frosty thing in my stash box at present. well, no, I just checked the 2nd sample of another strain and it seems to be at least equally frosted (but with an enticing reddish mottling!)

 

S20151119_00047.0 / Smell: Sweet and fruity, not overpowering, just inviting.

9.0 / Burn: It does.

8.5 / Taste: Ahhhhh…immediately struck by the richness, a smoke I want to hold on my tongue to savor the flavor. Very peppery as I might expect fr4om a good skunk.

7.0 / Exhale: smooth and easy but there is a cough lurking in the background, by the time I exhaled the high was already crawling up my face and peppercorns were dancing in my mouth.

S20151119_00028.7 / High: Immediate satisfaction, usually when something hits me this quick I expect it to taper off quickly…waiting…

9.0 / Manicure: Yea, tight, solid 9, I think the only way to hit 10 here would be for it to be manicured by naked virgins right in front of me.

(8.0)Overall: Yea, like I’m gonna try and do the statistical averaging after burning a bowl of this…I’m happy not to and just say the high seems to be building and by the time I finish editing the pictures and posting this I expect this initial happy might transform into a serious happy which is all I’m really hoping for in a good recreational smoke, but the pain in both brain and body seem to pleasantly retreating. I think this could climb up onto any top shelf and feel right at home.

S20151107_0001(8.5) After action report: 30 minutes in and the mind high is pleasant, not feeling couch locked, body stone is very nice though. I almost feel like I could remember how to do algebraic calculations, not that I ever would. Only had to correct 3 words on proof reading, I could see this being a daily delight, certainly something to add to the rotation to keep from getting bored.

Northern Lights Special

Click to toke, er…zoom

MANICURE: Outstanding, as pro as they go.
OVERALL: Northern Lights Special is indeed a special treat, the buds are hard, tight and beautiful. Great high, It took me several days to get this review done because I kept trying this stu8ff and then I'd wander off and do something else. Finally I sat down, rolled a joint and 12 hours and 10 minutes later here we are, a finished review, now if I could just remember how to post it.8/10
