[Strawberry Fields x Haze][80% Sativa]
I absolutely love Strawberry Cough, I know you’re probably like huh? Because I so often say that I don’t like Sativa strains but there are a select few that seriously hit just right. Strawberry Cough is one of them because it tingles my creative muscles and curbs my anxiety ever so slightly while still delivering a slightly heavy stone. This specific strain of Strawberry Cough holds nostalgic feelings for me because it was a house strain at the first dispensary I ever worked at. So, when in California it is a must have because they seriously just don’t grow it like this in Arizona. Experience joyous giggles and silly thoughts while medicating with friends or propel yourself into a meteor of exciting creative ideas.
How Does It Hit The Senses?
Prepare to be astonished with the absolutely overwhelming strawberry goodness smell that comes from just one teeny nugget of Strawberry Cough. The sweet strawberry aroma mingles with a sharp marigold that creates an almost cheese like scent. I’ve really smelled nothing like this strain before in my life, it is truly fantastic. Strawberry Cough buds are a bright, almost lime, green with vibrant orange pistils. There will be some large nuggets from the yield but generally this breed will be tons of crystal trichome packed little buds.
What Are The Effects?
One very worth mentioning aspect of this strain is that it tastes exactly how it smells, and that’s coming from a girl that smoked it out of a homemade apple pipe. When inhaled you’ll feel almost immediate stimulation in the ocular region. Ride along a soothing wave of balance between stimulation and relaxation as the strain washes over you. Neck and shoulder pain begins to cease and the mind begins to race through creative and exciting new thought patterns. It’s possible that the new brain activity will provide a little bit of facial contortion and then it begins to mellow out. The strain is very active but that activity is hyper internalized so that it can be utilized within the mind itself like creativity generally is. I recommend this for any and every writer that I’ve ever met. Just make sure to keep your pen nearby.
[Mexican Landrace Sativa]
Smelling a strain is important. Whenever I had a patient at the dispensary that was unsure about a strain I would just tell them, “Your nose knows.” and I’d raise the jar to their face and have them choose only with the smell and not their rational thinking. Acapulco Gold is one of those strains that would sell to any patient despite their personal preferences because of the utterly seductive aroma it emits. Pair this delicious Sativa strain with a cup of coffee in the late morning for a productive and blissful afternoon. This is also a strain name that popped up a lot with old timer stoners at the dispensaries. If these beloved patients ever listed off the strains from the “good old days” for me Acapulco Gold would be thrown in there.
How Does It Hit the Senses?
Once the jar is open you will truly become overcome with the aroma of sharp sandalwood embedded with sweet saffron. It is immense, and it is one of those scents that embodies the sativa aroma and engulfs a room when you open the jar or bag. The fat & chunky buds grow in a bulbous structure. They’re generally semi-dense and appear in a rich dark green hue with some light green notes. The taste is rich and vibrant that is quite reminiscent of the aroma but with a nutty almost almond aftertaste.
What Are The Effects?
At first, your mind will wander. It will wander off to weird crevices that you didn’t know existed in your own realm of thought. But then! Then something fantastic happens, all of that creative energy that has sent your thoughts ablaze comes to a fine point. Every time I’ve medicated with Acapulco Gold I’ve become a woman of words. I have finally opened up my floodgates to write poetry, I find streams of immense work flow from my fingers to the laptop and I feel …simply put… lighter. In every sense, Acapulco Gold will alleviate dark feelings and emotions, it will help you to put aside the gloom and just be. Don’t expect too much pain relief from this one, I’d supplement with CBD tincture or mix with a good Indica if you deal with pain. Also don’t worry about munchies, this isn’t Girl Scout Cookies, you won’t have any horrible need to eat half a pie (last night got weird) when medicating with Acapulco Gold.
