This is one of those strains that makes your cheeks feel puffy. I think Chipmunk is a better name than Garlic Blossom. Certainly the potency is about where it should be. I am feeling more relaxed than I figured I would based on the color and disposition of the buds. A lot of that may just be due t the fact that I was stressed as fuck today, so any weed was going to start unraveling my back knots.
It’s not my favorite bud texturally. It’s a little crumbly and over-dry. When ground up, the buds turn to powder and that can be tricky to work woith, and definitely smokes a little harsher than other recent top shelf offerings.
I really like this bud, but I think today it’s because I really needed the relief more than anything romthis particular strain. And hey – that’s part of this. I started out writing reviews for bud to distinguish between myth and reality in terms of what I was seeing in the marketing. And part of what is true about weed is that almost all weed is pretty great if what you really need right then is to get high. That’s not the most profound thought I have ever put on paper, but it happened.
