Strain Name: White Rhino
Type: Indica Dominant Hybrid 90% Indica, 10% Sativa (Brazilian Sativa x South Indian Indica x Afghani)
Looks: This phenotype of the Rhino produced large very dense, extremely crystalline monster buds. Colors ranged from light olive green to some leaves that actually appeared white, but the overall appearance is that of flowers covered in frost and ice after an early snow. Enough to strike fear in the heart of the inexperienced smoker by looks alone!
Smell: Very deep, dank, and pungent. A very complex, almost overwhelming aroma (actually most aspects of this strain, true to its namesake, were quite overwhelming). When sniffed lightly you definitely get deep berry tones mixed with a spicy anise aroma. Then, when you really stick the ol’ snoz in and start huffin’ deeply, it starts smelling like sour, peppery, baby poo, for lack of a better term! Hummmm, maybe we’ll just leave it at deeply punjent, spicey and sour! A strong 9/10 if you’re into to that sorta thing.
Taste: Very delightful, yet deceiving taste. On the inhale it is like sour patch candy with hints of anise and clove, very sweet and tangy. As you exhale it is very peppery in the throat, not unpleasant at all though, and leaves the tongue and lips slightly numb with a distinct,uber-sweet, anise aftertaste. I give a solid 8 in flavor ( I would go higher, but I personally prefer a more citrus – fuel thing goin’ on). That being said, I would add that this medicine almost taste toooo good for the potency. Taste so great that it’s easy to get in over your head and end up in another dimension for 4 solid hours!!!
Effects: As we all know by now, Rhino can end up in the 20% and above THC range, when grown with lots a tender lovin’ care, and this batch is clearly a good example of the higher end of that spectrum. I say this here because effects vary greatly according to dosage levels. Even 1 good hit, in a nice glass, can have very pronounced effect for a good hour or more. In smaller doses I seem to feel the sativa effects more, hits right behind the eyes immediately and the psychoactive stuff starts flying all around, I feel energy coursing throughout my body and my brain is flooded with brilliant lucid thought patterns. Even at this dose, I get numb at the extremities with great muscle relaxation, and pain relief, but can still motor-vate. However the higher dosages are a totally different story all together. When this medicine was perfectly cured (three months in large mason jars down in the catacombs) I rolled a nice 2 gram fatty and smoked it up out on the porch swing, on the veranda. WOW, ZAAAANGGG, it hit me like a steaming locomotive, running late for an important date, uhhh so to speak. Half way through the fatty my whole body heated up, sweaty forehead and all, and I began to loose all feeling in my body (should a stopped there, but I had some extreme lower back things goin on that day). Before I knew it my whole body was completely paralyzed, way beyond the usual Indica couch lock, and my brain was into a full on psychedelic experience. All I could do was watch pleasant colors, clouds, and glowing aspen leaves float past my vibrating eye sockets. I spent the next 4-5 hour in this paralyzed psychedelic state, being astutely observed by a very jealous, bored, Chihuahua. Well after that experience I learned respect for strong medicine and could truly say I had “Rode the Rhino train!!” As far as severe pain goes this is a very effective medicine, as I felt no pain for a good 6 hours, but you better be ready for the psychoactive effects, as well as having a whole day to spend on the porch, not doing much. 10/10 for medicinal effects.
Potency: Extremely strong medicine! Not for beginners. This batch was especially made to work well as a strong narcotic pain reliever. I feel that it faired well in potency smell and taste from fully organic dirt grow. All aspects of environment were strictly controlled and the plants listened to Jazz,G.D., Ween, Phish, and other forms of appropriate music throughout the grow. I love my babies.
