Ladies and gentlemen welcome to another edition of our weekly cannabis strain reviews featuring me – your host – Tyler Green, my bong, and a lovely bag of ganja!
Each week I take you through the appearance, smell, taste and effects of a brand new cannabis strain. This week I’m here to present a bit of a mystery – it’s a strain called Green Kiss.
Looking into the background of this strain resulted in nothing to shout about and no references to guide me, so this will be all based on my own senses. But I’m up for a challenge and I love cannabis, so I’m certainly looking forward to this one!
I’m not impressed with the trim job on this strain, the leaves have been wrapped around a compressed bud so it’s difficult to see.
However, it is covered in matted cloudy trichomes – light-green colour with embedded pistils hiding under some of the leaves.
This bud has been compacted and I can’t tell if it’s been imported – I don’t believe so based on the bud, but can’t tell for sure. My gut tells me it’s UK-grown.
The Green kiss gives off a delicate, sweet scent. It’s a bit pungent and comes out in full force when I break open the bud and stick my nose into it.
I’m also getting a nice kick with the smell – when I grind this up it gives off some of that sweet scent but surprisingly not as much as when I broke the bud open.
At a push, I’d say it’s a bit skunky, but it doesn’t smell strong, as far as strains go.
Ok, I’m going to hit two bongs of this so I can get a good idea of the flavour.
The first bong goes down a treat! I pack it a bit more than I’d usually pack in the first bowl, just to test it out a bit. I’m surprised by the lack of intensity as I manage to clear it in one go.
The taste is mildly sweet, but judging from the first bong alone, I can’t pinpoint that flavour.
Loading up the second bowl I’m starting to feel the effects of this strain, but we’ll save that for after.
Smoking the second bowl I finally get some chocolate flavour – could this be chocolate skunk? The sweetness comes through slightly and mixes with the pungency on the exhale, so yes, I believe it could be, but can’t be sure.
After two bongs of Green Kiss I’m reasonably stoned. The feelings I’m experiencing are definitely on the hybrid side of the cannabis effects spectrum, by that I mean it’s right in the middle.
I’m getting the familiar cerebral uplift, coupled with an enjoyable body relaxation. The intensity isn’t there, and I could smoke some more bowls of this without issue.
I feel great from smoking the Green Kiss, and it seems like a good daytime strain due me not being too stoned to continue writing this review.
It is not often that I get the pleasure of sampling something and working out a whole darn mystery as to its origins. I enjoyed sampling the Green Kiss and using my own senses to decide on everything, even though it is perhaps more difficult to analyse a strain without the familiar reference points!
