Melon Gum from Honu
Reviewer: Sue Vorenberg
Strain: Melon Gum (Hybrid cross of Lavender and Bubble Gum)(Sold at the Cannabis Country Store)
Grower: Honu (Washington)
Onset time: About six minutes to kick in. Kind of a creeper. (took two hits)
Fade: About an hour
Strength: Mild at first, builds to medium strength as it creeps in.
Tingling (where did you feel it): Lips, tip of nose, upper back, cheeks, foot bottoms, chin.
Control (can you maintain focus, etc): Relatively clear-headed and slightly spacey. Control is easy to regain.
Emotions: Peaceful, calm, happy
Energy level: Moderate
Smell: Sweet, spicy, earthy, with just a hint of pine.
Relieves: Upper back and shoulder pain.
Positives: Strong face tingles at times and a nice deep shoulder rub. Not bad for studying or moderate brain work.
Negatives: Fast fade and the buds are small and a bit popcorn-ish.
Other notes: Buds are well trimmed despite the small size and the quality is fine. Smoke is smooth for popcorn buds. Reading is great on this – I was able to work through a book on cannabis botany with few problems. Some strains actually help me read through dense scientific writing – they can help me focus and read more slowly so I get more details – and this wasn’t bad for that.
