Super Lemon Haze – Medicinal Cannabis Strain Review.

Super Lemon Haze – Medicinal Cannabis Strain Review.

Appearance. Incredible is the first word that comes to mind at the sight of this stunningly gorgeous bud, if you could marry a plant, I would surely take her as my wife!  She glistens in the light with a nearly incomprehensible beauty! So many trichomes its hard to see anything else! What a stunner! Once my jaw has reattached im able to see the colour of the buds. Which is a luscious bright jungley green, with some nice yellow tints mainly helped by all those amber trichomes. You can tell this is from an expert grower who has honed technique for years. The trichome build up is almost disgusting, so many just fall off at the slightest touch! The level of quality in comparison to the cannabis available on the street is vast, this is up there with the medical grows from California. This is trimmed nicely, dried properly and low an behold even has had a cure – no wonder its such good quality.

Aroma/Flavour. Really stinky, open the jar and the whole room stinks of a sickly sweet and incredibly spicy and hazy smell, this has such a hazy aroma its almost unbelievable. That’s not to neglect the citrus fruity lemon aroma. Which is really powerful. The flavour is fantastic really lemony with a slight Orange/Clementine it tastes even better then it smells, still very hazy with hints of spice but still refreshingly lemon.

Effects. Wow this pretty much blew my head off, two to three tokes and I feel medicated, five or six and I’m nice and high. A great heady and uplifting sativa buzz and a real energy giver! Im impressed with the strength and the medicinal effects of this strain. Very effective on spasms and tremors and great for pain too, I’m a fan. However I did notice that after smoking I seemed to have some neurological activity, Limonie a terpine which gives the lemony flavour is an immune stimulant which may explain why. Maybe this isn’t the strain for me personally, which is such a shame as it is some of the nicest medicine I’ve had in the UK period.

Comments. A great Sativa effect, nice and uplifting. It is such a shame that this isn’t really the greatest strain for me. This highlights the point that different conditions need different strains as i know the grower find this strain particularly effective for his symtoms. its a lovely smoke and credit goes to the grower for the amazing flavours that come out of those resinous buds.

Amnesia and So Gouda – Cannabis Strain Reviews.

Cannabis Strain Reviews – Amnesia and So Gouda

Amnesia –

Appearance. The buds have a nice deep yellowy green, you can see the trichomes are nice and have been harvested at the best time, the amber trichomes adding to the yellow hues. Some really beautiful calyx formations and some nice brown hairs which are fairly sparse as a whole.

Aroma/Flavour. She smells great, real classic haze flavours, spicy and sweet. The taste you’d expect from this strain! A great balance of hazy high notes and spicy/earthy low flavours. Really nice flavours that leave a great flavour in your mouth even after smoking. Yummy!

Effects. Definitely a Sativa dominant smoke, nice and uplifting but with some moderate symptom relief – this would be great for a busy afternoon definitely an energy giver.

Comments. Amnesia seems to be a relatively common strain in the UK at the moment, this is not the best ive ever had, but clearly grown by someone who knows more of what they’re doing then quite a lot of the medicine you get on the black market.

So Gouda

Appearance. Small calyx heavy buds which look like they have been left to finish properly, something which I think is becoming rarer in the UK. A lush combination of dark deeps greens and lighter pastel greens. A lot of the hairs have turned a nice vibrant shade of orange-brown and can be seen erupting from the tops of the calyxes.

Aroma/Flavour. Extremely earthy cheesy and pungent. The berry and the cheese are definitely dominant over the g13 haze and its hard to get any hazyness at all, although she is much more fruity then a regular cheese would be. Quite sweet an a little Skunky she smells great. The taste is absolutely delicious with a cheesy earthy taste explosion. The fruitiness is less then in the smell but you still get abit and the aftertaste is also very nice, a little oaky but mainly earthy and pungent.

Effects. great for pain relief, I had some quite bad pain in the side of my chest which wet from an 8 down to a 3. Quite the body feeling which must come from the Blueberry, over all a great smoke, this ones for the early evening – perfect with your favourite hot drink – mines an earl grey please!

Comments. Ive been a fan of this strain since I first found it in Katsu in Amsterdam in 2010, great flavours and really nice medicinal effects.
