Red Dragon (Barney’s)


While sitting in Barney’s one night all by myself, I decided to buy some Red Dragon to mix with the Utopia Haze and Triple Zero Hash I had in a fat snake-in-the-grass. Take a look

From: Barney’s (Coffee Shop)

Grade: A

Type: Hybrid

Price: Appx. $10/Gram

Looks: Awesome. Really tight lime green nugs covered in wild orange hairs.

Smell: Very strong/danky pine smell with a hint of fruit.

Taste: Strong thick smoke that leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. You know your smoking good stuff.

Buzz Type: The buzz from Red Dragon snuck up on me. I smoked a little in my pipe before leaving Barney’s to go roll up the rest and it took a bit to hit me. Definite creeper.

Buzz Length: Long. In my opinion the best thing about Red Dragon is how long it kept me high.

Overall: A great bud from a great shop. The next time I am in Amsterdam, Red Dragon is definitely on my short list of buds to smoke again. A Marijuana Reviews Top Pick!

ABOVE – The Snake-In-The-Grass I Rolled.

Buzz Report: By itself, Red Dragon is a great strain. But let me tell you, when mixed with some Utopia Haze and some Triple Zero Hash, it is down right wicked! I should of named this joint the Barney’s Triple Threat. It was a beast.  –Chubbs

    Sounds like really good bud.

    So hairy!

    Cool it made Top Pick and stuff.

    How long did the buzz length last?

    I was high for a good hour and a half. I smoked a bowl, walked back to my hotel, ground up to different types of bud, rolled up the snake and after that was still high.

    Looks like some fire Chubbs, Im pretty sure the genetics are a Himalayan kush X Pure Brazilian so that would explain the tight nugs, but still creeper high. Cant wait to sample that if its in stock. What was the best grass/hash you had that wasn’t an entry for the cup?

    The best non-cup bud I smoked was a tie between Jack Herer from De Tweede Kamer and Sweet Tooth from Barney’s.

    I only smoked cup entry hash. Of that the Greenhouse Ice got me the highest.

    I miss this stuff, had some just before the cup started this year and was one of the best smokes I found the whole time there. Most stuff was pretty disappointing but also enjoyed the Red Diesel from Barneys which was awesome. Pictures are great to remind me :) .

    How was the high and was it intense? Red Dragon sounds like a treat a kush with a sativa?

      Dazed: Buzz is killer. Definitely one that I will be hunting down again on my next rip to Amsterdam.

    This is looking like some real nice bud Chubbs.
    This was my friend and I’s choice for seeds.
    Can this be grown outdoor? I haven’t seen one grow bible or any pictures of someone growing it so i have no clue.
    I heard this plant yields 500 optimum indoor but id like to also know how much it yields out door and when this plant harvests.

    Nice Review

    Me and 3 of my friends smoked this the other day. Everyone of us became really sketched out and paranoid. Like nothing we’ve ever smoked. I instantly assumed it was laced.

    Just harvested and dried a short full plant 2 1/2 ft.. Netted about 2 ounces of beautiful trimmed buds.
    Smells and tastes wonderful. Very sweet flowery taste and not even cured yet.
    Very strong head high with nice underlying good body feeling. High lasted over 2 hours. It is at least 50% stronger than high quality commercial, yet I still feel totally in control. I ordered more seed today.

    Ive been to amsterdam a couple of times and the red dragon from barneys was one of the best out there.If you find your self in barneys you definetly should try the blue cheese and the roal jelly hash(o ya make shure you get their early cause the place is small and fills up fast but at least its not as small as the grey area which also has great weed).After your done smoking if you can move,cross the street and get something to eat at their resterant.I sugest breakfast,the bacon is awesome.

    I’m totally interested in making this my must try lists of growing for one of these upcoming seasons! Utopia Haze X Himalayan Kush makes it a NASTY HYBRID. I’ve read the info on this strain and it entitles, “Narcotic Body Stone and Energetic Clear-Up High!”

    Anguilla is like a dream.
    If you never been to Anguilla, it is time to make that change.
    Anguilla is a lot more then beaches and hotels and villas.
    I love Anguilla.
    I can not wait to get back to Anguilla.
    I wish I cound stay in Anguilla all year.
    Anguilla is a great place to vist and the worst place to leave.
    Why can I not find more info on Anguilla.
    I need a trip to Anguilla.

    Growing Red Dragon outdoors in Australia. Prob 3 weeks off harvest. My plant is in the ground would be 5.5 foot tall and about 4 foot around. I grew from seed and tipped at about 8 inches then a couple of more times during veg so she has plenty of heads. Vegetation was slow to start off but the last couple of months before flowering it really powered into a beautiful bushy plant. Went from a few white hairs to good looking buds in about 2 weeks.Colas are nearly as thick as coke cans. I don’t like to touch my buds to much but they look and feel like they are Gona be nice and tight when they are done. Love the smell and the collie of the plant. Although I am yet to try any I really do recommend the Red Dragon for outdoor grow. Side branches are so thick and strong that it will withstand outside conditions no probs. I’m from South Australia where we have long hot and dry summers.
