APPEARANCE, AROMA + TASTE

APPEARANCE:

At first glance as the small to medium,  nay almost popcorn buds roll on to the tray the complexity of Grapefruit Kush may not be readily noticed. But upon closer inspection, the robustness of the color palette begins to deepen in complexity and variation offering stunning almost sparkling glimpses of trichome clusters.

There are streams of violet and amber running through the greenery of each seemingly sugar coated bud.

Good  For Bowls and rolls when properly ground.

Had a nice break up – crusty and sticky but easily ground down by hand

PACKAGING:

It seems Kind Tree has figured out that by employing a ziplock they can keep down costs and still be stylish enough to push a brand.

This ziplock seems to be a slightly better quality than the Harvest, Modern Flower, Roll One bags. And I didn’t even transfer the contents…to be fair the the contents, Grapefruit Kush was too good to let sit around and before I knew it the photos were in, the review was written, and the Grapefruit Kush finished….definitely it had something to do with the first two accomplishments…

And that’s why I enjoyed this flower. It provided such a pleasant cerebral uplift and physical relaxation all while the mind was stimulated and focused.

  • Baked cookie type taste
  • Musk-generic hash-type flavor

The presence and this concentration of Guaiol at 0.13% is quite unique in my experience writing about and reviewing cannabis and in fact this the first and only instance that it has reached this level.

What does this mean most likely?

Well, Guaiol is…..

CONCLUSION:
Grapefruit Kush by Kind Tree is a hybrid born by crossing Grapefruit Kush (BC Kush x Grapefruit) X Master Kush, a crossbreed of an original Hindu-Kush chemotype. Grapefruit Kush emits a pungently earthen aroma and flavor which carries notes of chestnut, pineapple, and hashish.

Grapefruit Kush’s greatest gift is its top-shelf body high which can level the playing field between cerebral invigoration and physical bliss as the body high reinforces the initial cerebral buzz and raises the overall level of euphoria.

THE LONG WAY HOME (my toke…)

Kind Tree seem to be amping their game by not only tightening up on the former HMS line but also with all their new efforts and additions to their roster of flower.

New additions like sitting bull :chrome slipper 99 Tomahawk/ Gorilla Chem as well as legacy flowers such as strawberry OG pineapple Kush and Papayahuasca ,are providing Kind Tree with a leg up at least in Maryland.

Rumors of new Cultivators, possibly pulled from the lower ranks to ad her expertise and caring hand to the operation. Whoever she is and whatever she’s done (most likely it partially involves Kind Trees departure from some less than favorable curing and remediation tactics formally employed by HMS now abandoned by Kind Tree.
