Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
True to their name, these CBD flowers smell of sweet, dark cherry with a mild spicy scent that rounds out the terpene profile nicely and blends the fruity and sour, almost diesel-like notes nicely. It reminded one of our testers of a Cherry OG he once tried.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
The earthy flavors of the Cherry strain are the first to come through, followed by a sweet-tart finish. We really liked this particular strain in joint form, but it would also be especially enjoyable in a vaporizer.
The buds are a moderate in size and a deep olive green in color, with generous clusters of yellow-orange hairs and a fine layer of translucent trichomes throughout the buds. They’re subtly sticky and will leave a light film of resin and crystals on your fingers if broken up by hand.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
Since this is an inhaled product, the effects are nearly instantaneous. We felt anxiety and stress relief almost immediately, followed by pronounced physical relaxation and a pleasant mood boost. We felt less stressed, more focused, and generally good.
We felt the effects for about 4 hours, with peak effects about 30 minutes to an hour. They were plenty noticeable after a small bowl, but especially pronounced after sharing a joint. Since the effects are more intense with each hit and come on very quickly, this flower is a good option for people seeking immediate symptom relief.
Best used for
We feel this high-CBD hemp flower could be used to treat a variety of ailments: we found it effective for anxiety, depression, chronic pain, arthritis, muscle tension and pain, and athletic recovery. It would also be effective against any ailment you would otherwise use CBD extracts for, from cancer to epilepsy to cardiovascular disease.
While this is obviously a wonderful product for people who prefer to smoke, it’s also great news for those of us who prefer to make our own extracts: you can use it to make your own CBD oil without worrying about the finished product being high in THC. For people who like to incorporate CBD into their food and beverages, this could be a potentially exciting option.
