January 29th, 2010 Dr. Skunky

Genetics: 90% Sativa / 10% Indica
THC Level: 15% – 20%

Overall Rating: 8.8

“Heads up, body up”

Looks: 8.5
Vibrant light green, covered in glistening trichomes, with dark peach hairs.

Smell: 9.0
The smell is overwhelming, this is the reason I came home with this strain, the smell attacked my nostrols and I was sold. A strong sub tropical pine, with a hint of citrus.

Taste: 8.0
Smooth and sharp, best enjoyed through a water filter, it can hit your throat pretty hard.

High: 9.0
A fast strong head throbbing come up, it hits you hard but doesn’t knock you over. The high is actually very elated and non-drowsy great for mornings and afternoons. A superb high, I love this pot! This particular strain is very medicinal with great results for headaches, migraines and joint pain. The heavy Sativa content can definitely raise blood pressure and heart rate, so not the best for a wind down end of day session.

Value: 9.5
Excellent quality at the standard price, no fees :). Good Trainwreck is a beautiful thing. It has thrived and been mastered in Humboldt County for 12-14 years.

“Heads down, body down”

Looks: 8.0
Dense green buds packed with frosty trichomes. Poor manicure, but still really catches your eye.

Smell: 8.0
Strong and pungent floral odor with a hint of fruit. Has a unique smell unlike other purple strains I have sampled in the past.

Taste: 7.0
Thick, heavy smoke. Has a faint purple taste to it. I was hoping that it would taste as good as it smelled, but not all books can be judged by their cover.

High: 7.5
Slowly creeps up on you. Gives a mild head buzz and slight relaxation to your body.  Could be good for the mornings as well as being smoked throughout the day. This marijuana strain didn’t seem to get me too stoned. Surprisingly mild for a heavy Indica strain. Does not offer too much pain relief. But does calm you down, could be good for anxiety relief.

Value: 7.0
This strain possesses good medicinal properties, however it didn’t grab my attention too much. This strain gives a decent mellow stone that relaxed me for a few minutes after inhalation. Where it lost the “WOW factor” was mainly in taste, since it didn’t near live up to the smell that it produced.

Looks: 7.5
Small fluffy buds with dark green and purplish hues.

Smell: 8.5
Faint fruity aroma with a hint of pine and lemonade.

Taste: 8.0
Thick smoke, has a slight pine taste. Reminds me of a fruity-like, almost fruity OG Kush aftertaste.

High: 8.5
Fast, very effective and uplifting head high. Has very spacey stone. Thick, powerful smoke that hits you in the head right away.

Value: 8.0
Strong effective strain good for headaches. This could possibly and to help mellow out. Can still be used throughout  the day.

Blue Cheese Strain Review

“Heads down, body up”

Looks: 7.0
Dense, yet small, popcorn-sized nuggets. Rather tan in color,  with inadequate trichomes.

Smell: 7.0
Slightly fruity aroma, The scent did not remind me of blueberry though.

Taste: 6.5
Faint fruit-like taste.  The smoke was very and light and fast dissipating. Not what I would have suspected.

High: 7.0
Mild sedative effects. This strain produced a mellow head buzz.

Value: 6.0
For the price, this strain was lacking a lot .  Compared to the Blue Cheese I have sampled in the past this particular strain was lagging behind in terms of high and taste. The smell was not all there either, maybe it needed a longer cure or it was picked premature. Unfortunately this review does not give blue cheese the due it deserves.

Looks: 7.5
Dense light green buds covered in trichomes.

Smell: 7.5
Very unique smell. Has a piercing fragrant scent of lemon and pine.

Taste: 7
Kind of lacking in taste, slightly sour. Smooth on small hits but you can defiantly feel its potency on larger rips..

High: 8

Heavy onset. Clear high in smaller quantities. If smoked in large quantities this OG Kush marijuana strain is evening appropriate and will leave you couch locked.

Value: 8
OG Kush was a decent strain. It accomplished it job of sedating. For the all the hype ive heard about this strain, I felt it didnt live up to its reputation.


Fade Fools

BlueDream is a very unique looking strain. Dense bud with blue and purple hues packed with trichomes that glisten like a christmas tree!

Smell: 8
A spicy smell with an overpowering fruity aroma.

Taste: 7
Smooth thick smoke that was not at all harsh or cough inducing. The blueberry taste was not as light and ‘fruity’ as I expected but more deep and best experianced through a bong or a joint.

High: 9
Hits you within seconds. Starts with a very stoney head high then finishes with a nice mellow body high. Nice functional high that you can go about your day no problem while not feeling the urge to smoke again for hours.

Value: 8
For me to spend $60 dollars on an 8th im expecting some killer pot! Blue Dream is defiantly that. Ive always been more of an indica guy but I could defiantly switch to this in a heartbeat.
