Editorials and critiques of the best businesses and strains in the industry.
There’s no better day-time strain than Haze, the quintessential Sativa, known for its uplifting spirit and lilt of tropical citrus. With the distinctly-bred “Tangerine” version, you know that aroma and taste will satisfy, and our sample from Medibis did just that. The bud, although a little feathery (typical of haze) was still dense, perfectly cured, not too wet or dry.
Right out of the bag the aroma exploded. Immediately we were hit with the organic orange-tangerine aroma, like fresh-squeezed juice. Ground, a spicy, earthy musk was released, but skunky in a good way. “The terps were strong with this one,” one critic wrote.
Her burn was clean; we attempted at first through bong but after a number of other methods, all preferred the spliff for taste). First hits throttled and warped from the get-go. Slightly cross-eyed for a minute or two, with an electric cloud starting in the forehead and moving to the rest of the body. The initial power climbed for at least 25 minutes. In seconds the room was upbeat and energized. From there effects crept for what seemed like an eternity.
Parent strains G13 Haze and NYC Diesel both present the characteristic of being wound up but not necessarily tense. Likewise, we were spastic and heady, and eventually explored the environment for food and entertainment. Although driven, distractions were commonplace and we couldn’t necessarily accomplish much, although we could do “a lot.”
“Great vibes,” wrote one critic. “Great hash-making strain, awesome flavor.” Another wanted to drive to Red Rocks. Munchies ranged from tacos and fruit salad to “clear soda and crackers.” Three full hours of zaniness ensued with aftershocks felt for the rest of the day.
