Each week I review a new cannabis strain for the ISMOKE youtube channel. To go alongside this, I write a weekly feature for ISMOKE Magazine discussing each strain I review in a bit more detail.
This week Candy Cream is in the cannabis strain spotlight – join me as I take a look at this bud and let you know all about the appearance, smell, taste and effects.
This sample is sparkling with trichomes – they look like glitter in the light. The bud is 90% indica and the sample seems to reflect this.
It is not as dense and compact as some of the other samples I’ve seen, and there are also some bits of popcorn leaf. However, the overall appearance of the Candy Cream is good and I’m looking forward to smoking it!
This didn’t smell very much initially. Searching for a scent I get subtle hints of sweetness, but not much else.
Breaking open the bud I get a sweet skunkiness that is quite an old school scent.
It is a scent which is hard to describe, but which is definitely sweet, skunky and quite complex – there are Earthy notes which come through but no gas like the earthiness in some of the kush strains.
The bong of this was quite intense – it tastes quite sweet and creamy, but the smoke is a bit acrid.
I enjoyed the hit on this one, although it did make me cough. Not a particularly big taster, this batch, but inoffensive and I’d certainly smoke again.
Being 90% Indica, I was expecting the Candy Cream to hit me hard in the relaxation department.
It didn’t disappoint, with the Indica effects kicking in from about 3-4 minutes after I hit the bong.
The Candy Cream makes me feel happy, relaxed and gives an enjoyable stoned feeling that I could certainly get used to.
I enjoyed reviewing this sample of the Candy Cream cannabis strain grown by an unnamed Hampshire collective.
My favourite thing about it was the look – those trichomes look like they’ve literally been magnified. The sweet complex scent was nice although not very apparent, and the taste and effects were both enjoyable.
