This week I got my hands on some Colorado Chem for another ISMOKE strain review and information feature.
When I started researching Colorado Chem I couldn’t find the genetics information online, but through the grower I have been able to pin it down.
This strain’s genetics are actually: (Chemdawg 4 x Chem ’91) X (Chem d x i95) X GG #4
Colorado Chem won 2nd place in the 2014 Denver Cannabis Cup (People’s Choice category).
The sample came in a “Gas Leak Extracts pack” made from plastic with a printed design featuring the Union Jack and Gas Leak branding.
I thought that this packaging was cool, looks a bit like something I imagine you might find in the US.
The bud itself looks very nice, with a better-than-average trim job and solid green colour, and glistening trichomes clearly visible.
The bud has an old school look and feel to it, also looking like Chemdawg, which isn’t surprising as it makes up so much of the Colorado Chem genetics.
It also feels more resinous than average, and is very sticky when squeezed.
The pungent gassy smell is strong, and comes out in full force as soon as the bag is open. In the video I state that I would like to live inside that bag, it smells so good.
Imagine a similar smell to things like Holy Grail, OG Kush, OG Reek’n, Road Dawg and Kosher Kush, and you can start to get an idea of what this smells like.
It is definitely one of my favourite cannabis-type smells!
Read our Holy Grail cannabis strain (My favourite strain of 2016!) review here:
The flavour of Colorado Chem can be experienced nicely through the bong. And I did so, being treated to a smooth smoking experience and nice flavour on the exhale.
After ten or so seconds I got a sinus-tingling feeling – the same feeling I get with strains like stardawg that are covered in trichomes and feel expansive in the lungs.
Where the flavour of the Colorado Chem really came into its own was when I vaped it. Using the Mighty at 180 degrees Celsius I got an almost literal representation of that oh-so-sweet aroma in the delicious cloudy vapour.
The strong pungent gas and pine notes were very apparent. Delicious and left me wanting more!
This is a hybrid strain, delivering a potent hit with the Mighty-Vaping/Bong-Smoking combination.
The high kicks in after just a few minutes, progressing into a lovely mix of a body-relaxing yet mind-lifting state that I thoroughly enjoyed.
This was grown well, and the genetics of Colorado Chem are strong. Both these factors led to a top quality sample for this week’s review.
It is hard to fault the Colorado Chem. This is one I’d smoke again and again.
