Welcome back to ISMOKE and another cannabis strain review.
Today we are taking a look at an Indica strain which combines great genetics from across the globe.
Lavender, bred by Soma Seeds, is a combination of Super Skunk, Big Skunk Korean and Afghani Hawaiian. Also referred to as Soma #10, Lavender has been growing in popularity of late. This is the second time I have encountered it this year. The first was in Remedy Cannabis Club Barcelona, but I missed my chance to purchase it then!
Fast forward to today, and I have a lovely sample here grown by an unnamed Hampshire Cannabis Collective.
The Lavender sample looks great – it came as one solid bud. Exotic looking, the bud has good depth and a bit of give which suggests it had been dried well.
It has also ben given a good trim job. The colouration is quite dark, with vibrant pistils that overtake the bud at some points! Good trichome coverage.
Sniffing the bud I get a light floral scent coming from the Lavender. Quite a sweet underlying scent.
While the smell isn’t initially overpowering when ground up the Lavender has a delicious old school skunky and slightly spicy scent.
The taste didn’t come through so much in my bong, which is a shame. I got a watery aftertaste, but not much actual bud taste through the first bong I hit in the video.
Taking the second hit I decided to use hemp wick and I’m actually impressed – this Lavender seems to have a very mild sweet and floral aftertaste which is quite nice!
I am wondering about the terpene profile of this strain. Does it have a high concentration of linalool? (the terpene also found in Lavender). I’m not sure from smoking it, but I get the enjoyable indica feeling. More relaxation than elation, this could be a good one for pain relief (although not speaking from experience).
I was impressed with the strength of this Lavender cannabis sample – the effects are very apparent a few minutes after the first bong.
As usual, I enjoyed the review this week. The lavender cannabis strain is one that I’ve been looking to try since missing my opportunity to grab some in March, and I’m glad I did!
