I recently had PG-13 by Gaia Cannabis, and knew I wanted to smoke more of their marijuana. The packaging is seriously informative. Very few brands have a full cannabinoid breakdown like this and I appreciate it. The label even has strain breeding information - in this case they've crossed a Widow with an 'unknown hybrid', one that I bet has a soft diesel heritage of some sort.
One last note about the packaging. The heat seal on this was a pain. This bag is designed to tear from under the heat seal, which means it has to be higher than the tear-here notches.
The smell on this is dry, and holds fast to the bud. It's vegetative spice and doesn't spread.
A lovely mint green is the primary color on this marijuana. There are a few darker spots and soft almost-yellow highlights. I believe there once were fat clear trichromes all over this, but it appears to have been shaken for kief or otherwise broken consistently. Moderately dense, crisp orange hairs peek out of the buds.
On the inhale is the dry spice from the smell and a really faint tiny miniscule center of sweetness. On exhaling, that tiny sourness expands into a sweetness that runs through the center of the smoke. I have to say they really hit the sweet and sour notes of the name. The smoke has a nice vegetative smoothness with an aftertaste of traditional marijuana 'tang'.
The high is a mellow. There's a smooth uplift and a calm body feel through this high. There were serious legs on the high and overall everything was a mellow balance throughout. This has a huge amount of CBD, and it had a great detached body feeling. This would be great for all day pain relief.
