Structure: Medium-sized nugs, decent cure, soft on the inside, but exterior feels slightly dry.
Palate: Dark Chocolate Custard, Stone Fruit, Lemon Floor Cleaner, Coffee Ice Cream, Musky Sour Gas.
Effect: Strong. Nice body sedation, hazy head high without putting me to sleep.
Overall: With fantastic branding, FOMO marketing, and exotic herb, BackpackBoyz has quickly become the @supremenewyork of cannabis. Strains that make their legal dispensary debut tend to sell out within hours, and this was no exception. Let’s take a look at #33, their most hyped up release to date.
I tear open the pack to reveal a slurry of LOUD familiar notes: Sour Musk, Cheese, Citrus Peel, Gas, it is all there, somehow harmonizing. My pupils dilate and an eyebrow raises as i reach in.
Structure is adequately compact, bud tears off with a small crunch. Mix of small light green nugs with a couple darker, and more brilliant, medium nugs.
The milky smooth inhale has hints of creamy cacao bean and plumb pudding. The exhale brings classic astringent limonene terp, found in other strains like LPC and Lemon Tree. A phenomena occurs as roasted coffee from the Biscotti and Lemon swirl to replicate rare, Rwanda-sourced coffee beans. This symphony concludes with a lingering, funky, sour butane gas from Gelato.
Without taking into account the exclusivity and astronomical price of this herb, and by strictly judging the herb as it is, this one still earns high marks in my journal. It’s got to be one of the most complex flavor profiles I’ve had. If you have the chance, scoop it.
Black Cherry Gelato is a slightly indica dominant hybrid strain (60% indica/40% sativa) created through crossing the infamous Black Cherry Funk X Acai strains. Known for its delicious flavor and super relaxing high, Black Cherry Gelato is perfect for any indica lover who appreciates a great taste, too. This bud has a sweet fruity cherry berry taste with a light touch of skunky herbs to it, too. The aroma follows the same profile, with an herbal berry and skunky overtone that turns pungent and dank as the nugs are burned away. The Black Cherry Gelato high is just as delightful, with a calming overtone that will have you kicked back and totally at ease before you know it. The high starts with a subtle boost of the spirits, filling your mind with a lifted sense that eases away any negative or racing thoughts. As your mind settles into this blissful and hazy state, a tingly sense will fill your body, leaving you totally relaxed and slightly couch-locked. With these effects and its high 26% average THC level, Black Cherry Gelato is often chosen to treat conditions such as insomnia, chronic pain, depression, chronic stress and muscle spasms or cramps. This bud has small grape-shaped forest green nugs with minty leaves, thin orange hairs and a coating of frosty tiny golden amber crystal trichomes
These nugs are frosty with a fine layer of thick chunky white trichomes and are sticky with sweet resin. Afghan Hawaiian is probably best known among the cannabis community for its memorable aroma of pungent yet sweet earthy cheese and taste of cheesy licorice with a surprisingly delicious hint of rich caramel.
