Strain Name: Firewalker OG
Type: Sativa-dominant hybrid, Fire OG x Skywalker
Looks: There are definitely some textural differences in California medicine vs. Colorado medicine, and this was certainly a case of that. This sample was dense as a rock and had a very closed, blocky structure that made it difficult to appreciate the visual qualities of the medicine up close. Once magnified though, the large collection of cloudy trichomes shows that this was a well-timed harvest. The trichomes though seemed a little beat up, with very few (mostly on the untouched interior of the bud) making it to our hands totally undamaged and intact.
Smell: This sample had a light and spicy Kush scent, carrying a pronounced perfumey, floral hint along with the more standard Kush aromas. When ground, it got slightly more aggressive and took on a light fuel/chem sharpness that added to the complexity. This isn’t the most pungent sample in the world, but you can smell it sitting in the jar from a good distance… it seems to settle a bit and dissipate quickly once ground though.
Taste: Very much like the smell, this was a spicy and soil-heavy OG, with a pleasant and non-aggressive Kush flavor. The smoke was extremely smooth and not expansive, which made it a highly pleasurable smoking experience, especially for those with respiratory issues or patients who are used to vaporizing. The final ash was a medium gray with some white fleck, which shows it received an average flush before being harvested.
Effects: This med made us slightly light-headed and made our hearts race to start, serving to wake up the senses a bit and provide some internal energy that sustained at a high level through the first half of the effects. A strong pulsing throughout the body (especially the legs and feet) along with moderate amounts of eye and temple pressure signaled the rather high potency of the early effects. As it progressed, the talkative and social mood changed to a much more sedate one, where internal concentration on one thing at a time was high but sociability and multi-tasking ability was low. As it left, we felt a little bit drained, but the body effects seemed to keep up at a relatively high level until the end.
Potency: 2.5 – 3 hours

Good Strain For: Mood elevation, strong ocular/head pressure fluctuations early on, rather strong body relaxation, appetite stimulation, and mental relaxation leading to sleep aid later in the duration.
