Vanilla Kush From Private Source (CanadaDank07)
What’s everyone up to this weekend? Did anyone hit up Hempfest? –Tokeahontas
These buds are a marvel to behold. The structure of the buds are very sativa. They are long with monstrous calyxes that are completely swollen and stacked in a foxtailed fashion. This gives the nugs an appearance of being vine-like. What stands out with this bud more than anything is the beautiful layer of mature, swollen trichomes that lines every square millimeter of this strain. The trichomes are not only abundant but they are dense and large. With all these factors in play, the flowers look like golden weeds of the highest order.
In the sun, the buds look completely yellow/gold. Here and there you’ll see some brown pistils scattered about, but they don’t stand out at all. I find it really exciting when a bud is as triched out on the outside as it is on the inside. The cure was a little bit short when I got it but a few days in glass made a big difference. When I bought this the stems didn’t snap right but they have since come to fruition in their snapping ability. It goes without saying the bag appeal is out of this world.
This was a private grow, and it shows in the quality.
When you pop the jar in a room, fruity skunky cookies will cut through the air and into your nose pretty quickly. When you break off a flower cluster, immediately you’ll smell sour/syrupy watermelon in the air. As the buds cured, this smell turned to a more catpiss/tangerine like odour. If you handle the buds and smell your fingers after, you’ll notice a clear orange/grapefruit smell to your fingers that lasts a long while. When ground, the smell is like ground blueberries, watermelon, and menthol with an even stronger reek of fresh baked cookies/vanilla extract. That tart, lingering crushed sour fruit with skunky cookies smell really penetrates the room if even a small amount of fresh ground flowers are left out unsealed. I would say the closest smelling strain to this I have tried is Subcools Astroboy (watermelon pheno).
Unfortunately, there is not a whole lot to report here. The taste is light but fruity and sour. You need a nice, clean piece or large joint to detect it, but when you get it, it’s very nice indeed. However, the taste was clean and the buds burned down to a beautiful grey/white indicating a solid flush/cure.
This stuff is a strong starter; not quite as strong/quick as say diesel/chem/og genetics but strong nonetheless. About 10 seconds after exhaling I found a notable change in perception. I found there was a quick heaviness that sets in but goes away again after roughly 10 minutes. Increased euphoria and decreased anxiety were felt almost immediately with this one. I found after the initial 10-20 min. rush, the buzz became extremely functional and clear.
This is great daytime medication. It is not debilitating at all and I was able to remain sharp on an intellectual level and get done what I needed to do without feeling clouded or stuck on racing thoughts. The feeling was just right for a user with anxiety such as myself. Although this may not the best strain for tough, physical activities, the buzz doesn’t tie you down either. If you need to stay sharp on the outside as well as the inside, this is also good for that. I find that this buzz slowly fades out and gently eases you back to reality rather than giving you a tough crash/burnout to deal with.
Up to 2.5 hours if it is my first session of the day. It is usually around the 2 hour marker when I feel the medical effects wearing off.
I really like this strain a lot for daytime anxiety management. Although it can make me a little laggy at times, it is great overall. I would recommend this strain for anything anxiety/stress related as well as for daytime pain management and depression. For the qualities I look for in medication, this was really great stuff. Points were lost because it could have been cured longer (which probably contributed to the very subtle taste).
Overall, I was extremely happy with this purchase because of the high quality and low price. The guy I got this from is a grower himself and very well connected. As you can see, the benefits of befriending a grower are immense. For this, I recommend sending in as many reviews as you can with as much knowledge and detail as possible. If it wasn’t for that, I would never have met this contact and wouldn’t be reviewing this today. He found me because of my reviews. Let that be a lesson to all. –CanadaDank07
