Blue Frost and Double Rainbow
Last week, much of the United States was gripped by frigid temperatures and life-threatening wind chills, with some areas of the Midwest dealing with colder weather than they’ve seen in decades. If you’ve been following the news at all, you probably already know what’s to blame: the dreaded “polar vortex,” which describes a large area of low pressure and cold air that surrounds both poles of the earth.
I however because I live in America’s finest city, San Diego, only endured 50 degree temperatures and a bit of rain. And, yes I know how incredibly blessed that I am to live in a climate that doesn’t beat up my body and soul.
All that being said, the weather did creep into my weed strain selections this week. The first being Blue Frost. Blue Frost is a 60% indica/40% sativa dominant hybrid strain-a perfect balance of relaxation and focus. It was created by crossing Blue Monster (indica dominant hybrid) and Jack Frost (a sativa dominant hybrid) strains. Blue Frost is both visually stunning and aromatically alluring. I read that it got its name from the beautiful frosting of trichomes that cover it’s big beautiful green and orange buds.
Blue Frost has a rich and smooth flavor – fruity with the sweet taste of blueberries with a little bit of cheese mixed in to keep the flavor interesting. To me, the flavor and the aroma are quite similar to Blue Dream and the smoke that lingers in the air is really clean- smelling and uplifting.
The effects of Blue Frost are balanced and perfect for day or early evening-uplifting but yet relaxing. The effects begin with a soothing overall body sensation and eventually spread and take over the body, leaving you feeling remarkably relaxed. Like most hybrid strain, the result of overindulging, may cause you to feel lethargic and locked on the couch.
Also this strain is known to cause some noticeable dry mouth and dizziness. I however did not experience either one of those side effects. I just got chilled out even though it was 65 degrees in San Diego. No polar vortex here just a bunch of cool breezes and Blue Frost to keep things cool and chilled out.
After every major storm, including the one we had last week, there is always a rainbow. In my case, it was Double Rainbow, the second strain that I chose this week. Double Rainbow is an indica dominant hybrid strain that was crafted by the geniuses at In House Genetics by crossing Rainbow Cookies x Purple Hulk The result is another “Girl Scout Cookie” strain that is balanced and yet definitely has an indica edge to it it.
As I said previously, this strain tastes like a cookie strain -sweet like cookies but with more berry overtones and a bit of skunk thrown in there for good measure. The effects of Double Rainbow are double what you would experience with Girl Scout Cookies and after a couple of tokes, you will be chasing rainbows right to your couch. Relaxed and contented, you will find the pot of gold , as you let go of your stress and become enveloped in a rainbow of gratitude. Always look for rainbows because they are always around!
