Blue Dream

Killing Fields Budder

Strain Used: Killing Fields
Extraction Solvent: Butane
Sativa/Indica: Sativa

Appearance: Dry off-white creamy chunks; consistency similar to that of dry bar soap, but flakier.

Aroma / Flavor: A Strong astringent citrus smell is given off from the dry concentrate. When smoked the flavor and aroma of the smoke becomes much more complex with hints of incense and haze.

Overall Effects: Killing Fields is a connoisseur grade sativa bred by Sannies Seeds that produces large yields of potent purple and pink sativa flowers. When concentrated into a budder the effects of Killing Fields are further pronounced, delivering a soaring dreamy haze-esque high along with a profound sense of objectivity. While the effects are very cerebral and “up” in nature, this particular concentrate is best used later in the day, as the high slowly evolves into a dreamy stone leaving most lackadaisical and ready for a nap.

Super Silver Sour Diesel Haze

Strain: Super Silver Sour Diesel Haze
Lineage: Sour Diesel x Super Silver Haze
Breeder: Connoisseur Genetics
Sativa/Indica: Mostly Sativa

Appearance: Light mossy green nugs with orange / rust pistillate hairs throughout composed mostly of loosely clustered medium sized bracts. The resin glands on this sample are particularly large and have a sandy appearance to the naked eye.

Aroma / Flavor: Light and nutty with woody floral and foresty notes – the flavors and aromas of this phenotype are pleasant but very subtle and light, atypical of most high potency strains. After a session, the room is filled with that distinct “church” smell associated with haze varieties.

Overall Effects: This plant was grown from a pack of Connoisseur Genetics SSSDH, which is a rework of a Reservoir Seeds strain of the same name. As with most haze heavy hybrids, the onset of the SSSDH was smooth and gradual – beginning with feelings of lightness and well being and slowly evolving into a functional dreamy high with the classic “haze vision” (An almost static like appearance in your peripheral sight and an added lucidity noticed mainly with rays of light and colors). When used moderately, this can be a great morning or daytime medicine with little noticeable “come down” when the effects begin to wain. This particular phenotype, while exhibiting mostly Sativa traits finished in a respectable 9 weeks with mostly cloudy (and a few amber) resin glands.

Snowcap x Jack Herer

Strain: Snowcap x Jack Herer
Lineage: Snowcap (Bay Area Clone) x Jack Herer (Haze)x(NL5 x Skunk)
Breeder: Unknown
Sativa/Indica: Sativa Dominant

Appearance: Mostly conical shaped light green buds composed of medium sized calyxs and bright orange / rust colored pistils. Nugs appear to glisten with potency under the light.

Aroma / Flavor: Mentholated floral lemon, bringing to mind a mentholated vapor rub like “icy hot”. When smoked the flavor is fresh and citrusy, almost hazy with a distinct mentholated flavor that coats the mouth and throat.

Overall Effects: Clear and Uplifting, this hybrid has what is sometimes referred to as the “creeper” effect, with a gradual build up in high that ends in a strong well balanced sativa buzz. While overall this hybrid is very much a sativa and cerebral in it’s effect, a warm body buzz is also apparent throughout the duration of the high. Some patients who need strong sativa herb for its medicinal properties (anti-depressant, anti anxiety, etc.) report feelings of edginess or racing thoughts strains with many, but the balance of effects found in this hybrid tend to alleviate these side effects and still deliver a clear and uplifting effect. Fresh, floral, and hazy this potent sativa dominant cross is a great daytime smoke that will do the job without preventing you from getting things done.

Overall Effects: Blue Dream is a great daytime or morning smoke – the high like the name suggests is light and dreamy, with an upbeat euphoric effect. The classic “haze” vision is common, making your vision lucid and the world appear brighter. Praised for it’s antidepressant properties and unique blueberry muffin flavor and aroma, blue dream took the medical scene by storm and can be found at dispensaries throughout the country. While some hazes are too intense and psychedelic for some, Blue Dream offers a more gentle journey into the crisp head highs of the haze family. While predominantly up and cerebral in effect, this is great social herb that any connoisseur would be pleased to toke on.

The skunk #1 takes the edge off the sometimes racy effects of Jack Herer, delivering a more manageable sativa buzz that’s great for getting things done. The high is lucid and clear, almost invigorating – this variety could be helpful for those with depression or anxiety, who need a natural pick me up that wont knock them down or send them spinning off into the psychedelic stratospheres.

Phyllis Diller

Strain: Phyllis Diller
Lineage: Unkown
Breeder: Unknown
Sativa/Indica: Sativa
Dispensary: MMRC – Sherman Oaks, CA

Appearance: The Diller is that lime green color that almost glows, accompanied by light pink / rust pistils. A respectable amount of beige trichomes give the surface a grainy appearance. Surprisingly dense for a sativa.

Aroma / Flavor: Sharp Lemon Citrus aroma with a complex Lighter fluid bottom – and it doesn’t stop there, upon exhale there’s a delicate floral innuendo that brings to mind Super Silver Haze.

Overall Effects: I don’t know why they named this stuff after a comedian because there isn’t anything laughable about this strain. For those in need of a serious pick me up, this stuff is where it’s at. The high is immediate and soaring, felt almost entirely in the head leaving the you alert and focused. The flavor is indescribable, with a range from lighter fluid or gas (but nothing like the sour diesel family) all the way to fresher citric notes suggesting the presence of the terpene limonene. The high is intense and euphoric, and the unique flavor can easily cause overindulgence. There is little ceiling to the effects – your mind just keeps racing faster and faster until your left with sweaty palms, anxious, and peeking through your blinds. Not for the faint of heart. One of the best sativas I’ve had the privileged of smoking here in SoCal – respect to the breeder responsible for this gem.

NYC Haze

NY Haze

Strain: Haze
Lineage: Unknown Haze variety commonly found in the NY area.
Breeder: Unknown
Sativa/Indica: Mostly Sativa
Grow Notes: Long thin fingered sativa leaves, open bud structure, flowering times of 12+ weeks.

Description: The haze commonly circulated on the east coast of the United States, particularly in the the NY area, has definitely declined in quality over the past decade -I speculate this is mainly due to greedy growers harvesting crops prematurely. None the less, from time to time a good batch comes around that sends you soaring. With a timeless psychedelic cerebral high reminiscent of thai varieties of yesteryear accompanied by that spicy floral pallete with hints of frankincense and sandalwood, you really can’t go wrong. The smell of these haze varieties when grown properly and to maturity is robust and full, and is easily smelled through a bag or two. Unfortunately, more commonly found on the streets is a whispy airy product that smells grassy, almost watery or like mildew with only hints of that classic haze smell coming through in smell and flavor. Even still, the watered down product delivers a high reminiscent of the better batches of a decade ago – euphoric and spacey, at times even soaring, with the classic “Haze Vision” that causes colors to appear more vivid and the glow of lights to linger.

The main problem with these prematurely grown batches is that the high is fleeting, lasting only 20-30 minutes at best, and the taste half way through a bowl, joint, or blunt becomes “black” ashy and unpleasant. The build-up in tolerance to the improperly grown batches is also exponentially higher, with little to no effect being rendered from repeated use in a single day. When done right the haze is a classic smoke with no ceiling that is as good or better than any of the new school heavy hitters (Og Kush, Sour Diesel, Etc.) .

The NYC Haze referred to affectionately as “The Piff” is a clone I dream of one day obtaining. If your one of the few in the tight circle who hold her in your stable, and have more info on the lineage of this particular haze cut contact us!
