What are some good sources of information to learn more about strains?

Is wayofleaf.com kosher?
I like my women the same way I like my personified cups of coffee...black...strong...and proud.

I like allbud but wayofleaf is good too. Even leafly is useful sometimes. Usually I'll just google the name and read at least the first couple sources since there's so much conflicting information out there on a lot of strains. If you want to get really in depth and nerdy about it grow forums are a good place as well.


Cracked a new jar of durbs this morning. Same batch (2.53% terpinoline, 5.02% total terps) so nothing new. I don't know if it's because of how fresh it is or because I switched to a different, milder coffee but the anise/black licorice taste that durban poison is known for is super prevalent. Its usually kind of lost in the background but today its coming in right behind the terpinoline and then sticking around long after I exhale. Guess I have to go get another jar now, this shit is just on a whole other level from the bud we usually get here.

I did get a nug I consider a perfect example of the strain though - it has the density, shape, structure, color, and resin production that I look for in a good durban cut. It's not like a huge spectacular bud or obscenely beautiful like  iusedtoskatemore's BBK pic, but more like a type specimen if you're taxonomically inclined.

Basically I'm looking for that chubby football shape, very dense bud structure (fairly unique for a landrace sativa) that's smooth with no or few protruding calyxes, dark (but not purple) sugar leaves, and bright pistils that are essentially "glued" in place from all the resin.

I think a huge contributing issue to the look, if you will, of a lot of weed is how it's manicured/cleaned up/trimmed. the vast majority of anything coming out of the store isn't going to be hand trimmed and if it is, it's been shaved by a shitty trimmer using spring loaded fiskars while making $15/hr and who has no incentive to make the bud look nice. You remember all the mafia beasters that was around and people talked about it getting "keef boxed" or whatever, and that's pretty much what happens to most store bought herbs these days. Running shit through a trim machine, dry or wet, really ruins the aesthetics in my experience/opinion.

I only bring this up because those pics I showed were of buds that had been bucked (some big leaves removed before hanging), hang dried, and hand trimmed with scissors made for manicuring bonsai trees- which was the west coast standard, with trimmers getting paid 200+ pp to do a good job of it.

No you're spot on (as usual). People here are so uninformed and used to the manscaped buds that when they actually get hand trimmed they whine about there being even the slightest bit of leaf. I know most of my bud looks fairly similar simply due to the buzzcut, that's probably part of why I focus on terps so much actually.

Every now and then we'll get "rough cut" from a couple of growers which varies from basically untouched to someone very quickly snipping only the most prominent sugar leaves to sometimes actually being better than the machine trim jobs. I have a jar of cherry AK roughs in the basement, I'll snap a pic in the morning if I remember. I bought it on sale and it had a really weird cure so I smoked half a J of it and threw it in a drawer. I'm almost positive they used one of those oven jawns because IIRC it was like 25% thca and 4% thc, so it got partially decarbed somehow and the most likely culprit is heat.

Very interesting! My neighbors are going to be pissed when they find me clipping their cedars and furiously sniffing jars of basil and tobacco. Hey fuck off Greg, I'm trying to figure something out.

So i looked up the wet Tap genetics and it looks like both parents are pretty potent IDH, so maybe it's there to push potency or stabilize something. I find that a lot of growers have a strain they do that with, here it's usually stardawg or GMO which is ok but boring after a while just because I've had it so much. Im glad to hear I was way off on my prediction with the WC, I guess I was just assuming what our shitty basic bitch growers would do rather than a competent breeder, let alone a mad scientist haha. I'm very interested in how the RF hits you now, if I actually guessed right and this one is anything like orange krush then you're in for a treat.

Pineapple haze sounds soooooo dope. If it's a chunk cross then according to Google it's lineage is Haze x (pineapple x (cheese x skunk 1)) ... Not bad haha. Some of the most legendary and important strains ever in there and since this guy clearly knows his shit I'd expect them to be very good, pure parent cuts. In any other stash I think this would be the star of the show, but you happened to get it alongside one of the rarest and most revered strains ever haha. With those genes I'm guessing it'll be fairly down the middle or slightly sativa leaning from the haze?


The guy that bred the Wet Tap and Redneck Frosting works a lot with Pure Michigan, I believe he might be one of the only breeders in Canada working with it. Check him out on IG: BarrieGrower. Dude has some amazing work and I'd love to grow his stuff. I know Space Sherpa and Simcoe Country Chronic work a lot with BG's beans and they both have beautiful product (their profiles may be private, but well worth a look if they aren'). Never done business with Simcoe, though.. would love to, his stuff looks outstanding.

The Redneck Frosting should be called "day wrecker", fucking thing turned me into a house plant in the middle of the afternoon. SO potent, I needed a nap. This is some late-night, watching LOTR-type of weed. High is very different from the Wet Cherry, even if they share the same genetics and are both indicas. RF is like a Mirko CroCop kick to the dome, WC comes on slowly but like a freight train. WC's high is smoother, more physical (bit of a hashy high), RF is is a heaaaaavy head high that knocked my ass out. I'm going to give it another go but not a whole joint this time lol Both highs are quite long-lasting, longer than i'm used to.
 
I'd say the Pineapple Haze is the highlight of the bunch; taste, smell, high, burn... everything is perfect. I can smoke it day and night no problem. 60/40 Sativa hybrid I'd say, right up my alley. I smoked a joint of it yesterday and could not taste my beer after, the taste is out of this world. I could smoke only this from now on and not complain one bit. Wish I could make you taste it, I'm sure you'd like it.

Panama Red is super special though, there's no high like it. He's got another jar put aside for me for my next order and for that I'm super grateful. I'm super tight-lipped about it and haven't told any of my friends. IT'S MINE DAMN IT.

Space Sherpa's also got another Thai in the works, but we're looking at 18-20 weeks of flowering, so that won't be for now. He's also growing some FIRE looking Super Silver Haze for his headstash and hopefully he'll be sending me a sample as well. Saw some pics and it looks nuts, pink hues and a ton of trichomes. Haven't had SSH in over ten years, I'm so excited, it's an old favourite of mine.

Sherp also just got his Black Milk (Right Hemisphere Genetics) tested at High North Labs in Toronto ... since you're the terp guy, perhaps you can tell me what the fuck this means:  https://ibb.co/99CgGM0 
That's one I really want to try but never got around to.
I know the numbers look good, but none of this means any sense to me.

@IusedToSkateMore 

That's some nice looking stuff my friend. Sadly, BBK and G13 never made their way up here. I remember reading High Times and dreaming of smoking G13. Was that your grow ? If so, fine work, good sir.

In those years, up here it was all about the Montreal Purple Kush, Sour and NYC Diesel, Silver/Super Silver/Amenesia/Lemon Haze, Lemon Skunk, Chocolope and White Widow crosses. A loooot of fucking Purple Kush, though... to the point where I got sick of it. Same thing happened in BC as well. Market was flooded with it unfortunately. Wouldn't be mad to see it properly grown today by someone who knows what they're doing, though.

Visited an OG yesterday and he sent me home with a couple small branches. Dudes been doing it since 81 and its consistently the best I've encountered- smoke always tastes and smells clean, no bugs or mold. What's also nice is that the buds aren't usually super dense or massive, a sign that they're 100% organic.

 Indoor soil run Kush Mints. Taste and smell were on point. Mildly sweet and well, minty. Smoke was lighter feeling on the throat than other KM I've smoked, indicative of a solid flush. First bong hit gave me a smile and I went about the day. Went outside with the puppy and was having a blast, quite clear headed and euphoric. Then I laid down on the grass to roll around and didn't want to move. No problem getting up, but the enjoyment of resting the body was strong. Once up on the feet, no feeling of lethargy or desire to sit. I think this is something worth noticing with solid 50/50 hybrids, especially those that are harvested on time (earlier harvest is speedier, later harvest is heavier). Couch lock is strong and wonderful, but once overcome and you're up, it's clear headed, fairly energetic, and mellow. 2nd and 3rd bong hit before taking a drive. Felt great and clear headed until about 15 minutes in when a live Phish show came on the local radio station and I felt high like I haven't felt since I was 19 and on Phish tour, smoking headies up and down the east coast. Mildly shroomy feeling sense of enjoyment and enhanced visual perception. Enhanced visual perception changed within 10 minutes and it was just a bangin old school feeling bomb right. 1 more bong hit before bed, slept from 11-8.

Ha! The RF sounds like what I was hoping it would be. That's basically what motorbreath does for  me - its not the most euphoric but if I'm wound up or having trouble sleeping it's great.

Pure Michigan sounds like its got some genetic potential for sure. From what I read it's notoriously potent, so I wonder if he's using it like some growers do with GMO to try and push up potency while still creating interesting tastes or effects. I've been on an IDH kick lately so I would really love to try the redneck frosting.

Super happy the pineapple haze actually lived up to the genetic potential and smell. It sounds like it could fit in the same slot that chaos kush or blue agave did for me - ideal for basically any situation and it tastes so good you never really get sick of it. If I ever see it on a menu here I'm going to get it even though I'm sure it won't be anywhere near as well grown.

The Panama red just...im soooo jealous but im glad it's going to someone who appreciates it haha.

To answer your question about the terp analysis... It's pretty fucking impressive haha. I would estimate that the standard "premium" bud here is around 2-2.5% total terpenes. The really crazy stuff like the durban is 3.5-5%. Any terp even approaching 1% is going to be very strong in both taste and effect, and all those little 0.1% ones will be the background flavors and smells that get layered in there and make things interesting. And this looks very interesting haha. This kind of profile is probably very strong and heady from the limonene/caryophyllene combo and likely to have significant painkilling effects. I honestly don't have a ton of experience with this kind of strain but I'm guessing the flavor would be earthy and sweet with a citrusy bite, and based on a quick glance at our menus for similar profiles maybe a black cherry or apple flavor to it? At any rate, it looks like a very useful medicinal strain and super flavorful.

Thats funny you say that because that looks like the kind of neon organic indoor homegrown headies you'd only be able to score when the festivals or phamily rolled through town back in the day. There were a few different varieties but I mostly remember the warm n fuzzy nugs like this that would make you dance because you were having so much fun, and then the darker, piney sativas that made you dance because you had too much energy.

I know you (and a lot of others) are a fan of Kush Mints and I wish I could get a consistent cut here. I've had 4 batches from 2 different growers and of the 4 only one lived up to the hype. The others were porn star weed.. Look pretty but they're faking it. That's something I've encountered from this grower on more than one strain though, and the one time they got it right it was REALLY good so I know it's not the strain. The good cut I had was slightly indica leaning in its effects but not overpowering at all just as you described. That "I could get up if I wanted to, but laying down just feels really nice man." vibe was definitely present for me as well haha. It was very pleasant and gentle which sets it apart from a lot of the strains it often gets lumped in with. I'd say when it's done well KM is one of the better modern/candy strains I've tried.

Yeah, it definitely felt like the old school headies. There's no getting around it jah jah jah pretty easy going and enjoyable. Keeps me lit for a minute and is easy on the lungs too.

This has me thinking about when herb wasn't legal at all and how niche/hidden it had to be. Someone shows up w a jar of headies and its something to get hyped on. First jar of Trainwreck I got from out here in the early mid/00swas the coolest thing ever hahaha. Never knew weed could be so clear headed with no burn out.

No more reminiscing today. Stay high. Lay low

stay high, lay low

Damn that looks nice. I went through a gelato phase last summer/fall and got my shit pushed in by Jet Fuel Gelato a few times (still have some from months ago, I'm a little scared of it to be totally honest haha) but apparently the Cherry variety is indica leaning and more of an afternoon/evening strain so I'm really curious. From googling it looks like there's some DJ short Blueberry genetics in there which always seems to push the right buttons for me. I enjoy just plain old Gelato as a goofy, creative strain so if it keeps that "fun" aspect but adds some pain reduction and sedative effects I think I'd really enjoy it. Definitely report back and let us know how it goes.

Gelato is a strain that doesn't don't for me. Its not bad, but I just havent found it to be particularly note worthy. I've had numerous cuts too. Same with the parent, sunset sherbet. Not sure what exactly it is, well, i do know i dont like the flavor or smell of any I've had, but about the high, it's just a neutral experience across the board.

my buddy had a gelato eighth pack from the us, the buds looked dry and didn't smell like anything. like there was no smell at all. very weird. buds were super hard, too. haven't smoked it. like our black market weed seems way better tbh.

Its probably second only to GSC for name recognition so who knows what the growing situation was like. Hell depending on where its from it might not even be the real thing. If it's from the states it's probably old as fuck which could explain the dryness and lack of smell. Maybe try rehydrating it a little bit if he still has it and see if it comes to life at all? Definitely possible and even likely that your local shit is better than a lot of the commercial stuff you'd find here, especially if it's gray market.

Thought I'd post my delivery today from a grey market service in LA County. Cherry Gelato Half Oz THC 31.45%

Maybe this is kind of a roast me post? I'm gonna roast this shit now and write some test cases.

Damn that looks nice. I went through a gelato phase last summer/fall and got my shit pushed in by Jet Fuel Gelato a few times (still have some from months ago, I'm a little scared of it to be totally honest haha) but apparently the Cherry variety is indica leaning and more of an afternoon/evening strain so I'm really curious. From googling it looks like there's some DJ short Blueberry genetics in there which always seems to push the right buttons for me. I enjoy just plain old Gelato as a goofy, creative strain so if it keeps that "fun" aspect but adds some pain reduction and sedative effects I think I'd really enjoy it. Definitely report back and let us know how it goes.
[close]

Gelato is a strain that doesn't don't for me. Its not bad, but I just havent found it to be particularly note worthy. I've had numerous cuts too. Same with the parent, sunset sherbet. Not sure what exactly it is, well, i do know i dont like the flavor or smell of any I've had, but about the high, it's just a neutral experience across the board. I'd just prefer the standard GSC for those ones.


I don't really like sunset sherbet either. I should also mention that the one I like is plain Gelato 33, I don't care much for 41 or any of the other phenos I've tried. I can understand where you're coming from with the taste, I have to be in the mood and right situation for those creamy and spicy strains. If I try to smoke it with my morning coffee it usually both overwhelms and kind of grosses me out. The usual Sour D cut we get here does something similar in some situations, I'm guessing because both are limonene/caryophyllene dominant. So on that note...





This is the same grower as the Biker OG. For some reason that and this are only $35, so after my vet discount and dispensary girl hookup it was only like $21. That Biker is really good so even though this is the kind of terp profile and strain I usually avoid, if I don't like it it's cheap enough that I won't regret it too much. Bag appeal for days and it seems to be hand trimmed, no basic training buds here. Not crazy strong or terpy but that might be a good thing with this profile. Smell is primarily spicy and earthy with hints of hop and pine, then behind that you get a whiff of green apple and a little hint of something creamy sandwiched in the middle. It's interesting, not what I'd call super appealing but it's quite different from what I usually get so I can't say whether or not I like it yet.

I'm pretty lit off some Kosher Tangie and my usual indica vape regimen at the moment so I'm not going even attempt to try this right now, tonight before I catch up on my rasslin seems like a good test case.

yep, don't really like spicy, black peppery, or meaty strains, if you know what I mean. I do enjoy GMO sometimes, mostly because I like the way it gets me high, but the taste/smell isn't my jam even though it trips me out every time and leaves my house smelling like fried onions.

I'm gonna modify this to route back to that Kush Mints I posted earlier this week. I've been blazing this consistently and today had the realization that this stuff feels the most similar, regarding euphoria and ease from bodily pain, to the early stages of using pain meds such as oxycodone. Takes about 15 minutes to feel anything apparent, builds up to a peak around 30 minutes, ride that feeling for an hour or so, then I'm feeling steady and nice for a couple more hours. Nothing particulalry unexpected, no burn out, just kinda fades away, take another bong snap and remain nice. Very consistent sort of high but not boring or 1 dimensional.

@IusedToSkateMore I definitely know exactly what you mean, and I'm the same way. I typically do not respond to these strains well, and I can honestly say that GMO would be the only one that might get into my top 20. I feel like the best cuts of it we've had here tend to have a little bit of gas and sweetness sitting on top of the garlic funk but it's never been a strain that I grabbed for the taste. It's 100% about the effects, which I have to admit are about as perfect a hybrid as I've found. It is trippy how easily identifiable it is from the smell though haha.

So I just smoked this Apple Fritter stuff. Taste is weird... It's sour and the humulene comes through really strong and it's not so peppery so it's like... hoppy green apple I guess? I don't necessarily dislike it but it wasn't yummy either. It's genetics are Sour apple x animal cookies, so it's like taking a fruity cut of sour D and mixing it with a heavy OG but you can still taste both? I'm going to be honest the more I sit here with it in my mouth the less I'm liking it.

The high is starting off very sour D. Loads of energy, not a lot of euphoria. This was probably not a good idea for a night strain. I'm going to eat something and try to calm down a little but so far it's exactly what I suspected but hoped it wasn't going to be like.

Sour D at bedtime... Not my style. Feels like an anxiety/teeth grinding sesh waiting to happen. Eat some cookies and milk, dude. Cookies n milk hahaha

I do need to get some good sativa for hiking and shit though. Want that completely clear head

Yeah they have this listed as a hybrid and it did eventually mellow out but that may have been more because I ate a lot and mixed in some bio jesus vapes than it naturally mellowing. The high was similar to sour D but not as good. Energetic and creative for sure, but I could see this being bad news in high doses and certain environments. Very little in the way of euphoria or painkilling and I got this weird feeling like I was perpetually about to yawn that made me anxious as well.

I'm thinking I might give it another chance after work but I'll probably end up giving most of it away. Not only was it not a great time but it fucked my sleep up and now I'm at work just dead tired and hating fucking everyone and everything.

I'm the highest I've been in a minute, and unlike the last strain this is the kind of high that I fucking adore.  I've had 3 concentrates and 2 cuts of flower of Alien Rift and its floored my ass every time. It also tastes kinda like a generic "sour blue" candy when it's an extract.

I kinda wrote all the alien stuff off for a long time because I thought it was all just marketing hype, but it's very legit. Whatever Alien Technology actually is, its got serious genetic muscle. I do believe the "secret Afghanica landrace smuggled out in the early days of the war" story but I would tend to think there's other examples that made it to western markets under different names, perhaps even before alien started doing their thing. I would love to get my hands on a cut of the original uncrossed line to see how different (if at all) it is from the standard afghani lines we get here.

Came up on some more amazing Mid-shelf, $20 per 1/8. This one is called Atomic Apple and it lives up to the name pretty good. It smells sweet and tangy like a sour apple, the taste is incredible and the high is very relaxing and satisfying. If you hold the smoke in for a few seconds it feels like it is expanding in your lungs, and a big bong hit will give you that feeling like you're going to start hyperventilating. This photo is actually from last weekend but I'm about to go pick up some more right now LOL. This stuff is up there with the Northern Lights for some of the best Mids I have ever had the pleasure of smoking

Hahahaha this is Apple Fritter (the one I got last week) crossed with triangle mints. The sour apple taste is definitely there in the AF too. That one had a really energetic sour diesel style high that I ended up not enjoying much, glad to hear this one is a good fit for you.

Hit up an 85% off deal on flower from one of the better growers in our program. Its from July but has kept surprisingly well, they do a proper cure and use good black glass jars so it's still got its funk. A little dry but a boost pack or hydrostone should fix it.

First up, blue agave. I've posted this one a few times in the past, always nice to get a 2 nug jar too. Despite being very modern genetics and looking like your run of the mill bag appeal bud, this is one of my go-to strains. It's mild but super pleasant and perfect for any occasion, great social strain too.

Next up is the Apple Sundae (apple juice x sundae driver). This is the one I was most excited for from the terp profile so I just ripped a bowl of it. Really, really nice. It's got a crisp sweet apple taste and the high myrcene gives it a very nice indica leaning high. The high is similar to the Alien Rift which I loved too. Sadly its dry popcorn so not much to look at but I assure you it's delish.

Also grabbed Sundae Driver and then a new cut of Jack from another grower. I'll take pics later but I'm really digging leaning back right now haha. All in all kind of crazy to walk out of a PA dispensary with a 4 strain half oz for under a hundred bucks, but it's there if you know where to look.

Label is unreadable but according to the dispensary site

Cannabinoids

CBG: 0.13%
CBGA: 1.13%
THC: 0.27%
THCA: 19.64%
THCV: 0.49%

Terpenes

B Caryophyllene: 0.25%
B Myrcene: 0.13%
B Pinene: 0.11%
Humulene: 0.1%
Limonene: 0.06%
Pinene: 0.06%
Terpinolene: 0.9%

So from that it looked like a good batch of Jack but nothing special. This is the first time I've seen Jack from this grower (Rythm) and I'm happy to say it's not only legit genetics but quite well done. The buds are just packed with trichs and those neon orange hairs that make my pupils hard.

Jack is part of my holy trinity of wake n bake strains (Jack, goat, Durbz) and I'm very much enjoying it this morning. Music sounds fantastic, my cheeks feel warm and rosy, and I have a permanent smile. This is the kind of grass that reminds me why I fell in love with it in the first place.

Sundae driver. Definitely wouldn't have got it if it wasn't stupidly discounted but its not bad. It's pretty much straight down the middle effects wise but there's just not a lot of euphoria or anything super desirable there for me. I guess the limonene/caryo dominant strains just really don't work well for me. This is likely going to end up going to the old man, I can't see myself finishing the jar any time soon.

Oh well, 3/4 ain't bad. The apple sundae and Jack alone made it worth it.

Jack is always a pleasure.

Homie had some haze varieties the other day, like 4 different hazes and land race sativas. Stuff was phenomenal. I'll show images when some comes home

It really is. I've said this before but man what a great tribute and honor to have a strain like that named after you. I think it's super cool that it's a creative, uplifting, and slightly silly high because it reflects his personality.

I got some LB sauce yesterday and the budtender asked if it was any good so I told her the story of how you recommended it and I fell in love with it haha. It's from last July but it's the last really good batch so I'm not worried about it losing too much oomph like the last tube of it I got.

Sadly our only grower with the legit Lambs Bread cut hasn't put out anything new since last summer so I'm guessing they either aren't growing it anymore or lost an entire room somehow. I know it's not the easiest thing to grow tropical sativas and they take up a lot of space so my fear is they just gave up on it. I hope someone else steps up and starts growing it because it really is something special. The current grower is one of our mediocre ones too, so if one of the guys who actually knew what they were doing put out a good legit cut I'm confident it would sell out as fast as golden goat does.

Definitely stoked to see some sativa landrace pics. You know how I feel about the more recent parts of the haze family tree, but some of the older stuff like Neville's and SSH can be really nice. I've also heard speculation that Kali Mist, which I enjoy, has a fair bit of haze genetics but of course everyone has a story about shit like that. Ive always wanted to try a legit original haze too, I've heard it's one of those incredible pure sativa highs similar to Panama Red. There must have been some absolutely bangin landraces in Central America back in the day, I wonder if there's still any undiscovered ones out there.
