Strain/Brand: Crimea Blue, Barney’s Lounge
Origin: indica + indica
Impression: that’s a single bud in the photo and Bob at Barney’s was cool enough to weigh the whole thing and let me take pictures – it weighed in at 14 grams (1/2 ounce)! Obviously, this is a fluffy yet solid bud, very hairy, sticky, skunky. It’s not exactly blue but spectacular with reds, greens, and white shiny crystals. Aroma is dense and full-bodied like a cheese strain but with a fresh green minty back tone.
Buzz: Woah, strong indica. Lay down on couch and join the stoner generation. Definitely a “night cap” smoke – this baby will lay you down nicely. Don’t operate heavy machinery or try to think deep thoughts on this bud. Just relax and go with the flow. Wax on, wax off, Daniel-san.
Price: 12 euro per gram
Summary: Bob at Barney’s was right again … when I asked for a “sleeper,” he just smiled and showed me the Crimea Blue. Serious smokers only – this stuff will couch-lock a sumo yokozuna. But if you like to be stoned and mellow, then this is a great way to get there!
