Phenotype Profile:
I took a step back when I first saw this sample. Even for a 1-gram sample, the bud size was underwhelming, which was surprising since Ataraxia never skimps on bud selection. But I didn’t freak out because Officer Downey’s years of experience on the street told him that this might be one of those Indicas which produces dense, popcorn-sized buds, like the sticky
Reserva Privada. I’ve never had this strain before, so I did some research and it seems Strawberry Banana does produce long thinner colas consisting of a small bud structure. Since I’ve never seen this strain’s plants, I’m making a guess based on my research that this plant probably yields a smaller, popcorn-like bud.

When I took a closer look at these little nugs, they bud structure was dense and tight. They exhibited light, neon greens with hints of purple and a few random orange hairs all wrapped in a generous coat of trichomes. This sample was on the dry side, so I put a 58% Boveda humidity pack in with the bud for 24 hours to wake it up.             
           
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 little buds emitted a banana-forward aroma with hints of berry. Once ground, the actual aroma of strawberry coame through and mingled with banana and a light hash. When smoked, I tasted banana on the inhale and banana and sweet berry on an earthy backdrop on the exhale. And for me, the mild taste of Bubblegum coated my palate. A tasty smoke.

Effects: C
omes on deceptively slow. At first, I felt a cerebral happiness at work and a little boost of energy. After about 15-20 minutes, the delayed Indica effects kick in and you’re soon experiencing a potent but functional body melt that does not take over the cerebral but instead compliments it.  

Duration of Effects:
2 hours

May Help With:
Helped with mood and mild cervical arthritis. May also help with PTSD, body and muscle pain, nerve pain, anxiety, stress, depression, nausea, appetite (and more)

Rating: 3.5
/5
A deceptively diminutive Indica-leaning bud that’s tasty and offers a unique set of effects.
