Strain Profile: This appetizing and definitive strain is truly worthy of being called therapeutic — banishing nausea, muscle pain, migraines and anxiety with one simple toke. With a touch of indica, Trainwreck’s gene pool is a heady sativa hybrid. When crossed with the White Widow linage, Permafrost’s potent cannabinoids will leave even the most experienced consumer drifting in and out of Salvador Dali surreal life experience, regardless of tolerance.
Appearance: Permafrost, as the name might suggest, are frosty, dense nugs that look mesmerizing under a scope. Swollen white trichomes crown the dark green heads of these beautiful buds, with hues of blue throughout. Her calyxes are short but stout in stature, with an overwhelming amount of dark red hairs covering the majority of the bud.
Consistency: Permafrost has the consistency similar to that of a cinnamon bun, dense and extremely sticky. A grinder is a definite must for breaking these ladies up. Sticky and hard to handle, Permafrost will even leave your favorite scissors a sticky mess. Provided you don’t have scissors or a grinder available, I’d stick with the glass. Trying to break these ladies up by hand is an exercise in futility – you may get accomplished – but most of the active compounds will be left on your fingers.
Scent: Permafrost boasts a distinctively stinky, sort of lemon-ish cleaner type of fragrance, with a faint whiff of spicy jerk seasoning. Who smells like rotten fruit? Sorry, I forgot to mention she also has that obligatory fresh-out-of-the-dumpster rotten fruit aroma – guaranteed to cause problems in small smoke sesh room; be prepared for evasive action on the odor control front.
Taste: Terpenes like sweet lemon meringue pie, Permafrost has a creamy inhale and a citrusy exhale. Featuring a complex flavor profile, the consumer gets a hazy, metallic aftertaste, complimented by a little bit of sugar and spice. Sort of like a Thanksgiving Day treat for your taste buds; a slight taste of pumpkin pie is the last thing on your lips.
Effect: Red eyes and dry mouth, Permafrost goes to work like an amped up speed freak, leaving your body loose as a goose and in a state of total relaxation. Her complex cannabinoid content leaves the consumer floating for hours. Creative and cerebral, relaxing yet uplifting, Permafrost vanquishes the tortured hallucinations of daily worrying over our 9-to-5 existence.
