Grandoggy Purps

Strain: Grandoggy Purps
Lineage: Chem D x Grand Daddy Purple
Breeder: Connoisseur Genetics
Sativa/Indica: Mostly Indica

Appearance: Compact rock hard nugs of bright green and purple, densely coated in trichomes. Orange / Rust pistillate hairs emerge sparsely from coral like clusters of calyx.

Aroma / Flavor: Unbroken, the nugs give off a deep musk often associated with the Bubba Kush family – upon closer inspection and agitation, an astringent chemical note from the chem d makes itself apparent with a sweet musky background from the GDP. The flavor is more similar to the smell of the unbroken nug, a deep musky kush without the chem / gdp nuances.

Overall Effects: The Grandoggy Purps sets in quickly, with a warm body buzz that envelops you from head to toe. The smoke is thick and expansive, leaving a sweet film of kush that lingers. While very potent, the ceiling is relatively low, with increased use prolonging the experience rather than increasing it’s intensity. This strains (This phenotype at least) effects are predominantly oriented in the body, felt mostly in the form of a deep sense of relaxation, well being, and calm. May be useful for those suffering from anxiety, muscle spasms, or insomnia.

OG #18

Aroma / Flavor: Extremely pungent fuel smell with astringent notes similar to a cleaning product such as pine-sol. Smell transitions to flavor perfectly, coating the mouth with a strong and familiar OG taste.

Overall Effects: Immediate and powerful, the OG #18 produces a profound change in mood and perception that leaves many lightweights in a wall staring stupor. Sporting hash like potency, a well rounded high, and a deep fuely spin on the familiar So-Cal OG smell and flavor, even the pickiest of pot snobs will be satisfied. If your looking for a true OG in seed form with more vigor and higher yield than most of the clone only varieties being passed around, this is a good place to start looking.

Sativa/Indica: Indica Dominant Hybrid

Appearance: Dense trichome coated nugs, composed of light green and purple hued calyx’s contrasted by deep rust hued pistillate hairs.

Po #1 (Sour Double X SoCal Master Kush)

Strain: P.O. #1  (aka Riddler OG)
Lineage: Sour Double (Sour Diesel x Sour Bubble)  x SoCal Master Kush
Breeder: Progressive Options  - Clone Only
Sativa/Indica: Mostly Indica

Appearance: The nugs of PO #1 are large calyxed and similar in structure to Sour Diesel though a substantially darker shade of green. The surface has an almost grey sheen from the large trichome glands that densely accumulate in some areas. Spear shaped buds, full but not overly dense.

Aroma / Flavor: The skunky fuel smell of the Sour Diesel is present but substantially softened by the influence of the Master Kush, which adds a sweeter hashy flavor and smell. While less pungent than the pure Sour Diesel, the smell is still likely to escape all but air tight containers.

Overall Effects: PO #1 is a powerful indica dominant hybrid that calms both mind and body with it’s smooth and flavorful smoke. It sets in gradually, with effects ranging from a dreamy stone to full on couch-lock depending on the quantity consumed.

Ideal for use later in the day, PO #1 makes a great sleep aid and is known to cause “munchies” consistently regardless of tolerance.

Skywalker OG

Strain: Skywalker OG
Lineage: Select OG Kush Phenotype
Breeder: Unkown
Sativa/Indica: Indica Dominant Hybrid

Appearance: Dense tight clusters of light green calyxes with rust / maroon pistils.

Aroma / Flavor: A twist on the classic OG kush aroma – sweet, astringent, pinesol, funk.

Overall Effects: Skywalker OG comes on fast like a good OG should and while definitely an indica dominant cross Skywalker OG is surprisingly uplifting. The high, while strong and accompanied by a strong body buzz is upbeat and euphoric – by no means lethargy producing as many other OG crosses tend to be. Don’t get me wrong, you can definitely go to sleep on this stuff if those are your intentions, but it’s best applications would be for “focused leisure” like movie watching or socializing with friends. Like most Indica dominant hybrids Skywalker OG can be useful for appetite stimulation, as an anecdote for anti-anxiety, and for mild body aches and pains.

Caveman OG (Abusive Og Kush x Pre-98′ Bubba Kush)

Strain: CaveMan Og
Lineage: Abusive OG Kush x Pre-98 Bubba Kush
Breeder: Clone Only
Sativa/Indica: Indica

Appearance: Purple veins and highlights throughout sample, very large calyx’s with deep orange / rust colored pistils. Dense weighty nugs, thickly coated with visible trichomes.

Aroma / Flavor: Earthy and musky reminiscent of the Pre-98 Bubba Kush but with an additional astringent complexity, contributed by the Abusive OG. The flavor translates to a deep hashy OG flavor with, with sweet earthy inuendos.

Overall Effects: The CaveMan OG is a heavy hitting hybrid sure to be please any Kush fan. The Abusive OG Kush adds a more cerebral effect to the mostly body buzz of the Pre-98′ Bubba Kush while still retaining the heaviness of a good indica stone. The high comes on faster and lasts longer than the Pre-98 in it’s pure form, and the flavor is more pungent from the OG influences. Great for focused leisure or for those who need an appetite stimulant – if you overdue it you’ll likely be taking an unexpected nap. Dense trichome accumulation makes the CaveMan OG a great hash source.

Grand Daddy Purple (GDP)

Strain: Grand Daddy Purple
Lineage: Grape Ape x Big Bud

Aroma / Flavor: Very complex grape musk with incense undertones. Both skunky and fruity. The aroma transitions to flavor beautifully and covers your mouth with a sweet and hashy flavor that makes you want to lick your lips for more.

Overall Effects: Grand Daddy Purple is one of those strains of cannabis that you have to see to believe. Not only are the buds of GDP nearly solid purple, they smell strongly of a musky grape funk that saturates the pallet when smoked. The effects of GDP come on steadily when smoked, delivering a contemplative indica stone that is sure to be appreciated by any who encounter it. Grand Daddy Purple is unique in it’s effects for an indica because while remaining sufficiently potent, it leaves you surprisingly unencumbered. Those who need a solid indica for daytime use might find that GDP is just what the doctor ordered – though the unreal flavor and appearance can make this stuff hard to put down (which isn’t exactly conducive to getting things done). Like most indicas, GDP is great for stimulating the appetite, minor aches and pains, and anxiety.

Pre-98′ Bubba Kush

Strain: Pre-98 Bubba Kush
Lineage: Unknown
Breeder: Clone Only
Sativa/Indica: Indica

Appearance: Dense and chunky. Rock hard light green calyxes covered in a blanket of resin. Purple / fuscia veins visible throughout sample.

Aroma / Flavor: Earthy and musky, with distinct mocha and coffee undertones. The flavor is deep and hashy, rougher than the aroma.

Overall Effects: The smoke from Bubba Kush is thick and expansive, bringing on a warm indica buzz that is felt almost entirely in the body. The onset is gradual and the buzz is heavy and calming. A true indica, Bubba Kush can prove helpful for inducing sleep, pain management, and stimulating appetite. Yields from Bubba Kush are modest at best.

Blackwater (Mendo Purps x SFV OG F3)

Strain: Blackwater
Lineage: Mendocino Purps x SFV OG F3
Breeder: The Cali Connection Ltd.
Sativa/Indica: Hybrid
Price / Dispensary: -

Grow Notes: Average yields of AAA+ product in 8-10 weeks depending on phenotype chosen. A lot of variation in each pack, though all females observed were of high quality and would be considered top shelf.

Appearance: Very large bract calyxes. The buds are dense but clustered loosely creating an open structure and great bag appeal. A dense blanket of trichomes covers any and all surface area of the buds, coating your fingers in sticky resin glands when broken by hand – be careful not to rip your blunt or rolling paper!

Aroma / Flavor: Smooth and creamy, Blackwater softens the pungency of the OG Kush with an added lush and distinct fruit punch note drawn from the Mendocino Purps. The classic Og flavor is there in varying proportion depending on phenotype chosen, but my favorite from the pack (Though there really wasn’t a bad phenotype) leaned more towards the Purps with an unusually smooth fruity candied funk.

Overall Effects: The Blackwater phenotype for review is strong and dreamy, with a deep calming stone that lengthens the bridge back to reality with each drag. The stone makes a great segue to sleep, and is best suited as a nitecap (indulging earlier in the day could easily lead to unexpected napping). This strain really shines in it’s ability to cut through even the thickest clouds of anxiety and is great for silencing the restless mind – a complex indica buzz with a wide range of effects. While this phenotype exhibited it’s Purps lineage in both flavor and smell, there was no purple coloration present on this phenotype – I’d be really interested to see the other gems that sprung from these packs.
