Episode 19 in our 2020 Strain Review series features Divine Storm, bred by In House Genetics.
In House Genetics is a US-based seedbank specialising in microgrows, bringing new and exciting genetics out each month. Their other strains include Dolato, Cactus OG and more, and their tagline is “Breeding the future”. Visit their website here.
The genetics that make up this cultivar are Divine Gelato X Slurricane.
The dense, squat nugs are layered with plenty of colours giving this bud a unique appearance. Vibrant orange meets dark green with almost blue hints and darker spots around the leaf bases.
The Divine Storm has a deliciously complex smell ,with alpha-pinene leading and the blue smell that you get in things like Blue Dream also present.
A gassy, pungent aroma is released as the bud is broken up, and this is intensified as it is ground up.
But you don’t need to break open the Divine Storm buds to sense how amazing this one smells.
Divine Storm delivers a strong and desirable weed taste which is present from about 2/3rds of the way through the inhalation – in the video review you will see me move my hands to signify that I can sense the flavour.
Breathing out the smoke, I’m treated to a very nice tasting bit of bud, dried well and cured, plus with a fruity funk and gassy (jet fuel) flavour permeating my taste buds.
Putting this strain through a vaporiser led to an interesting discovery – Divine Storm tastes more fruity and fresh when vaped, and more funky and gassy when smoked.
The Divine Storm is a strong strain – it kicked in after a few minutes, leading with body led relaxation (it is listed as a mostly indica variety) and a notable uplift as I began to feel it working.
This strain could make a good analgesic, but the consumer may wish to smoke it in the afternoon or the evening, as first thing in the morning may prove quite inebriating.
Overall this strain was one of my favourite tastes so far in 2020. Both In House Genetics and Indian Buddha deserve props for this one.
