~ The look rates 7 out of 10. This eighth ounce sample of flower is a couple big buds and a few smaller ones that is a pear green with hints of lime green. The auburn colored pistol formation are plentiful but well spaced. I didn’t find any seeds in the packaging, which is still a zipped bag. There are plenty tricombs left in the package and I still feel a glass container would be multiple times better.
~ The smell rates 8 out 10. The aroma of this Sativa dominate is bright like sniffing a fresh lemon. This is well mixed with pungent fuel notes and hints of skunk. This is the second review of this strain. It’s pleasantly stronger this time.
~ The cure rates 7out of 10. I have found minimal amber tricomb heads. There is a carpet of bulbous, capitate-sessile and capitate-stalked tricombs. The bulbous is the smallest, the size of a thin human hair. The capitate-sessile are noticeable to the naked eye. The capitate-stalked tricombs are the largest and have mostly clouded heads in this sample. The lack of amber colored tricombs made this sample receive the mediocre score even though it passed the squeeze test.
~ The taste rates 7 out of 10. The profile has a mild berry flavor just like on the previous review from months ago. A light fuel exhale is present, but I seem to get fuel notes on everything.
~ The effect rates 7 out of 10. I didn’t get the Sativa like clear mind focus but I did get some body relief. It might be from distraction or maybe a terpene hid in there. I’m not sure. I did put out the half gram joint due to the euphoric high it gave me.
~ Overall this rates 7.5 out of 10. I’m not going to pretend that NSM didn’t improve from the last crop to this one. They did, but there’s still room to grow, in my high opinion. ~
