Welsh Buds – OG kush, AK48 and Californian Orange.
Well it’s been a while since I did one of these, as I’ve not been feeling as well as normal. Fortunately I met with Des Humphrey, and sampled some of what Wales has to offer.
Appearance: Dark and crystally, big calyxes, a few burnt bits, popcorn nugs.
Aroma / Flavour: Unmistakeably OG Kush, light, skunky, citrusy and fruity. Smells amazing, tastes just as good, really fruity and zesty. You could taste the burn in a few of the tokes which spoilt it a little.
Effects: Good symptom management, felt very cold before smoking, hypersensitivity became less after smoking, you can feel it with every toke.
Comments: Looks like the OG Kush from the Valleys is pretty much on par with the OG in Cali.
Appearance: Really hairy, must have been a city of pistils when she was growing. Golden hairs, dark green leaves, completely trichome covered.
Aroma / Flavour: Earthy and skunky, pineapple flies up when the buds are broken up. Fairly sweet. Des says, “A little citrus, after-taste is mouthwatering, doesn’t give you any drymouth at all, sweet and smooth in the mouth but a little harsh in the throat cavity (me-that’s what she said)”.
Effects: Indica dominant with a sativa edge to begin with, which mellows down into a nice body stone. Fairly good symptom relief.
Comments: So, this should really be called Pineapple AK.
Appearance: Light and pale greens, lots of orange creamy hairs, white and crystally.
Aroma / Flavour: Smells of kush, reminds me a lot of the Purple Kush I had in California. A slight fuellyness, like a dilute version of diesel, light fresh and kushy. Des says, “Earthy, indica, fruity smell but not in taste.”
Effects: Fast hitter, nice and stony. Des says, “Definite indica, body stone, and pretty good for pain.”
Comments: Hits really quick, a little harsh but that’s easily overcome.
