This strain is a Ethos Genetics bred strain where Critical Skunk and Mandarin Skunk were crossed. Micah at High Bank has hand reared this Sativa leaning hybrid.
~ The look rates 9 out of 10. I wanted to give it a perfect 10 until I looked at it under magnification. We’ll dog more into that in the cure. This eighth ounce of flower is almost one chunk filled with greens and purples that are so dark in spots it almost looks black. The trim is a little on the aggressive side.
~ The smell rates 10 out of 10. The scent of this massive producer is very pungent with a cheesy skunk stench that is sure to entice patients with its aroma. ~ The taste rates 9 out of 10. It has a citrus flavor skunk notes. I feel the Limonene and Myrecene are competing for my tongue’s attention.
~ The Cure rates 7 out of 10. This sample has a harvest date of 12/22 and was tested on 1/9, giving it an 18 day cure. I believe this was a great choice. However I have to be honest and mention that under magnification I found most of the kief is missing from the outside of the flower and exterior tricombs are decapitated. Once opening the bud, the interior tricomb heads are nicely clouded and beautifully abundant. This tells me it was machine trimmed to the point of raping the flower.
~ The effect is a 10! This may be one of the most effective Sativa dominate hybrid I have sampled for pain! I found it has some Indica like body effect to it as well. It didn’t give an anxiety or paranoia effect in small doses. In a larger dose it became sedative and more of physical pain reliever. My pain was greatly reduced by the half gram joint, nerve pain lowered by 2 points and chronic pain by 3 points.
Amco’s High Opinion
~ Overall I wish the machine would have left a little more on the buds. This is what caused this strain to not possibly reach a perfect 10 average. Even still, High Bank’s Rainmaker is a solid pain aid and has the ability to distract from PTSD issues. Good job High Bank! 9 out of 10!
