APPEARANCE, AROMA + TASTE

untrimmed grow west flower

APPEARANCE:

These buds are not trimmed and thus the cost was very low. Personally I think Grow West’s untrimmed is superior to most trimmed flower available in Maryland dispensaries (whether trimmed by machine or by hand)
If you decide to trim or waste ahem the outer guard or sugar leaves then you can quickly give it a haircut and you’ll immediately see that these buds are quite fetching.
I assumed the name came from the Grover’s 
Light green leaves, long orange stigma/pistils/“hairs”, as well as a blanket of tiny crystalline trichomes coating the surface like a light early morning snowfall.

AROMA:

  • sour berries creamy lemon pine skunk
  • Herbaceous lemon-pepper overtone
  • Some floral notes
  • Sour
  • Cheese
  • Over arching scent of pine needles

TASTE:

  • creamy citrus pine and diesel
  • Pine
  • Lemon
  • Diesel
  • Cream
  • Hint of grape

EFFECTS (MIND + BODY)

Intergalactic’s effect is subtle at first and seems to have a bit of a delayed onset.
I would say it definitely “creeps”.
After about 5-10 minutes Intergalactic begins to seep subtly into your conscious mind taking farther out into its space. As this happens sparks of cerebral activity begin to elevate mood. Stressful worry morphs almost seamlessly into excited expectation but not like a hard hitting diesel; but closer to a Purple Obeah.
As Intergalactic’s tendrils reach deep into the mind powered by substantial levels of Pinene, long forgotten memories can be recalled with ease and through a mostly forward thinking light of positive sentiment rather than deep introspection.
This combination of memory recall and mood elevation has the potential to inspire and motivate the mind and the body.

As the high continues, the carousel of memories moving across the screen begin to slow down, the more physical side of Intergalactic’s ’s body high begins to take shape with some light ocular pressure and sort of tingling sensation in the arms. The high culminates with a synergistic blend of cerebral and physical euphoria and as it tapers off, some increase in appetite and a feeling of drowsiness in higher dosages.

MIND

  • Can intensification of aural stimuli
  • Increased attention to detail /ability to focus
  • Enhanced long term memory recall
  • Enhances/ sharpens focus
  • Can inspire /stimulate creativity/ creative thinking
  • High potential to be confronted with painful and/or traumatic memories but negotiate them with a more abstract or objective frame of mind +/++/+++
  • Uplifting /mood elevating overall +/++/+++

+ micro 1 inhale
++ medium dose 2-3 large inhales
+++successive sessions over hours 6-12 large inhales

Intergalactic’s physical effects can settle the nerves and relax the body much like a strain of the kush indica variety

BODY;

  • Airy light body sensation in shoulders and arms +/++
  • Very physically motivating +/++/+++
  • Light to medium ocular and cranial pressure +/++/+++
  • Mild appetite stimulation (relaxing of muscles in stomach/abdomen) ++/+++*

+ micro 1 inhale
++ medium dose 2-3 large inhales
+++successive sessions over hours 6-12 large inhales

 

A CLOSER LOOK INSIDE:

Space Wrangle’sTerpo-Chemical profile:

AlphaPinene: 0.23% | BetaCaryophyllene: 0.13% | BetaMyrcene: 0.49% | BetaPinene: 0.15% | Humulene: 0.03% | Limonene: 0.12% | THCA: 18.83%

TOP TERPENES: MYR, PIN,CAR

Intergalactic’s falls in the category of strains like Poochie Love that leads in Myrcene and Pinene. But Intergalactic’s flavor, its exhale is much smoother than the Pooch. This less than favored profile is not as common as some but tends to offer a unique blend of uplifting and inspiring focus and a subordinate physical effect that is mostly comforting without being too sedative. This is true for those sensitive to highly energizing sativa strains.

 

POTENTIAL MEDICINAL & THERAPEUTIC APPLICATION

Individuals suffering from Nausea, Stress, Depression, Anxiety, ADD/ADHD may find Intergalactic to effectively mitigate symptoms.

  • Nausea
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • ADD/ADHD (Especially individuals seeking a strain to stabilize mood as well as enhance focus)
  • Trauma therapy/ PTSD therapy
  • physical/ inflammatory pain relief
  • migraine relief for some with high levels of pinene and myrcene and just enough limonene to ward off nausea associated with the early and later stages of migraine headache development

CONCLUSION:

Intergalactic is a cannabis cultivar created by crossing The Cube X  Constantine. Its aroma presents an overt piney musk that conceals minor notes of lemon, herbs, and berries.
It has moderate THC levels rounding out in the mid to high teens as is the case with many structural Sativa dominant hybrids.
There is a bit of a delayed nature to Intergalactic’s cerebral stimulation but soon it creeps to its entrance which once fully engaged uplifts mood, sharpens focus, and then begins to work its way deep into the psyche as its high levels of Pinene help evoke long range memory recall that can distract from the stress of the present. Just as it’s head high begins to arc Intergalactic’s ’s more mellow body high begins to seep deep into tired muscles and can render one immobilized and uplifted at the same time.
Individuals dealing with ptsd may want to steer clear of Intergalactic’s  intense rush of memory but those dealing with general anxiety and depression may take comfort in its effects, interpreting this strains trip down memory lane as one of mild sentiment rather than dredging up painful memories. Also, this is a great flower to help induce appetite.

THE LONG ROAD HOME (My Toke…)

At first I wasn’t sure what Intergalactic had actually made me feel and then I start to realize how many memories were flooding my mind and how I was able to see their connection to myself without it becoming an exercise in negative recursive thinking

Meanwhile it seems it’s been business as usual at Grow West where the weed grows green fat…and fresh.

The cerebral uplift was worth the price of admission to Intergalactic’s midnight show, as I seemed to literally feel it re-wire my overworked and worried mind to a more copacetic shade of elevated and motivation.

This steady flow of cerebral stimulation, enhanced focus, and an all over non-sedating body euphoria is quite an effective pairing for your humble narrator. 
If you can handle high levels of pinene and you are seeking an uplifting cerebral flower that can elevate or balance low or erratic moods, uplift and motivate (making it a wonderful morning and daytime flower). That being said, at this THCa percentage it doesn’t take much to transport you to the outer limits of the stars.

 

I will definitely purchase Intergalactic again in the future. I really responded to its earthen skunky high energy buzz. It really helped me focus on the project at hand and gain some good perspective on things happening in my current sphere which can be difficult to navigate at times.
