Phenotype Profile: This fairly dense, 1-gram sample consisted of mid- and light-greens with lots of light orange pistils and a decent blanket of trichomes.
Bud Density: 4.5 [1-5]
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this sample, so I will not be providing the specific terpene levels for this product.
In their intact state, these buds emitted a very assertive lime followed by a skunk aroma. Once ground, the aroma is like fresh-squeezed lime zest with a skunky element on the back end. When smoked, I tasted fresh lime followed by a skunkiness. The flavors linger on the palate long after the exhale. Outstanding, assertive terpenes.
TIP: To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: This one starts out with a pleasant boost of energy, which builds and plateaus over time. The potency is not realized for 10-15 minutes. While not a full-on creeper, this bud does have a longer-than-usual, delayed onset. I did not find the energy to be racy, though I could see how some people would. For me, the cerebral high was not 100% clear headed, like a Blue Dream, but rather a little heady and powerful. Over time, a mild body relaxation creeps in and counters the energy. Because of its dynamic set of effects, it makes for a perfect day time med or an early evening smoke. It’s worth noting that some patients also experience pain relief with this sativa-leaning bud.
Duration of Effects: 1.5-2 hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with mood and focus. May also help with mild to moderate pain, depression, headaches, fatigue, appetite, (and more)
This flower toggles between a 4.5 & 5 rating, depending on the batch. Lime Skunk happens to be a parent of one of my all-time favs: Lime Sorbet. And if you like the bud, you must try the Lime Skunk Live Sugar.
