lebanese sinatra golden gate pheno
I'm calling this one golden gate because the orange hairs are the same color as the bridge, and because it smells like you're standing at the top of twin peaks on a foggy day. I love weed that smells like outdoor air, the forest, or the ocean. Normally I don't name everything, but these plants are all seeded with f2's from a short branchy slow vegging male so I want to have a good names for labeling and breeding purposes.
the smell on this one is really unique and savory. not sweet or dessert like at all. this one smells like a good dinner followed by a walk to get some fresh air. smells like new years in san francisco.
it has a savory, toasty smell like fresh bread with a poppyseed crust, crisp dry effervescent champagne carbonation, ocean air and fog, garlic, pine, and dry sandy soil with wildflowers, herbs, and vegetation. hints of fresh aromatic mandarin or satsuma, black pepper, and chocolate.
there is a lingering morning fog dankness that reminds me of dense fog on twin peaks, or the meadows in golden gate park on a cold morning. the herbal vegetal aspects smell like the wild dill, fennel, and flowering wild onions that grow in parks in san francisco.
the flavor isn't as complex as the smell, but it is really smooth and savory. very smooth and mild on the inhale, like toasty bread with a poppyseed crust, celery root, and parsnip. there is much more flavor on the exhale. intense dry champagne carbonation and poppyseed with an aftertaste of parsnip and dry champagne. the only sweetness is a savory vegetal sweetness like parsnip, which lingers after you exhale.
this one looks really old school. the buds are very dense with yellow and pink faded sugar leaves and small tight calyxes forming star shaped points, and absolutely covered in burnt orange hairs. the resin glands are tiny. it doesn't appear frosty, but it is very very sticky. It's hard to see under all the hair, but the tiny calyxes are completely coated with the smallest resin glands I've ever seen. this one is more lightly seeded than the other phenos. seeds from this pheno are very small in comparison to the others.
medium-high potency, with a high that immediately relieves pain and leaves you very comfortable without introducing any other physical sensations. Mentally and physically relaxing, makes you motivated and focused. Slightly shroomy, in that it has a trippy mental clarity that broadens your perspective and grounds you. Helps with nausea and stimulates appetite. Very medicinal. The high is long lasting and seems to change over time. Although you could smoke this before going to sleep, this is perfect wake and bake weed for a day when you just want to kick back. Great for being social, or just watching movies and reading books. The effect is very dynamic, this might be my favorite pheno.
Before curing, the smell was straight up garlic and herbs with a toasty poppyseed flavor. almost like an everything bagel.
The hash from this pheno is a potent red honey oil that smells like brown sugar. much different than the shattery resin that my process usually yields.
I popped one of the seeds from this pheno, and it's looking great in veg. big leaves on a very short frame with good branching.
