Rated 1 (low score) to 5 (high score)

Look: Rated a 4. The buds are a very bright green, are completely covered in orange pistols and have many visible trichomes. Many of the buds were large and were very airy overall.
Smell: Will rate this a 3. The aroma was plain with no unique terpenes detected, however the strain smelled earthy and a little sweet overall. The smell increased slightly when it was ground up.
Taste: Rating this another 2.5. The flavor was clean with no chemical taste detected but was average with no distinct flavour.
Effects: Giving this category a 4. The effects of this strain were moderate for me with little-to-no brain fog. It did help to relieve some back pain I was experiencing. I had a noticeable increase in appetite after consuming this product (individual results will vary).
Comments: A version of this strain won first place in 1993 at the High Times Cannabis Cup and originally originated from the Netherlands. Although I didn’t enjoy the smell or taste, this strain was moderately medicinal and is ideal for daytime use.
Growing Notes: This auto-flowering strain is very easy to grow and is good for beginners. Flowering time is 8 weeks and is reported to produce an average yield of up to 8 ounces per plant indoors and 5 ounces outdoors.
This strain was grown indoors using deep water culture and under a 1000 watt HID light. The one (from five seeds) plant I grew took 12 man-hours to harvest and produced 11 ounces, which is higher than average. The buds were airy and not compact like the product description said. I also feel this strain was more of a hybrid as it grew short and wide, with small sativa-like leaves. I would grow this strain again for the high production and because it is so easy to grow.
