I grabbed this strain at the height of the drought. I usually try to stay away from anything strawberry but, when the market was dry I was willing to grab just about anything. Grow Sciences has a reputation for putting out some of the best weed Arizona has to offer. Since the shop I went only had Grow Sciences to offer on the premium shelf, it was an obvious no brainer. Sooo, lets talk about this mystery Strawberry x Cookies and Cream F2 cross.
Looks and Presentation
One thing I can say Grow Sciences does consistently is put out some extremely beautiful flower. This batch of Strawberries and Cream did not disappoint in that area neither. The buds were engulfed in trichome sea. Below that sea were some very elegant buds with captivating color. I had no complaints about the bud structure as well. All in all I was extremely pleased with how these buds were presented and definitely feel they deserve a 5 in looks and presentation category.
Smell and Freshness
As the buds were nestled in the jar, they smelled like strawberries and gasoline. It was like putting an air freshener in your car at the gas station. As I broke the buds down, they started to smell like sweet and sour sauce. I wish they were a little more fresh however, they were just a tad bit on the dry side. All in all, I would have to score the smell and freshness a 4 and thats only due to the buds being slightly dry.
From the moment I sparked the blunt, it was all cream on the inhale. As I exhaled, I got a mouth full of fuel. Making my way to the halfway mark, I noticed the flavor was spot on with the name. There were subtle hints of strawberry with heavy hints of cream. The creaminess was so heavy it stained my tongue and I could taste the terpenes long after the blunt was done. Seeing as strawberry is my least favorite flavor, I felt this strain had just enough of it to know it was there. I could confidently give the flavor a 5.
The high this strain produced was perfect for what I needed to accomplish. It produced a sense of relaxation throughout my body but, also encouraged me to get some work done. The amount of comfort I felt throughout my body was amazing. The fact that I was able to stay up and knock out boat loads of work is a plus for me as well. I was truly amazed by this Strawberries and Cream, especially for it being a strawberry strain. The high was for sure worthy of a 5 out of 5.
I could honestly say I was extremely pleased with my purchase of this batch of Strawberries and Cream. Imagine this strain after a few runs, and they get it dialed in. I am not saying that this strain wasn’t dialed in. However, I know what Grow Sciences can really do with a strain once they find the one and dial it in. Therefore, I am hoping to see this strain on the shelves again soon. Be sure to connect with us via Instagram and let us know what you think if you have had the opportunity to try it.
