APPEARANCE, AROMA, + TASTE :

APPEARANCE;
Curio seems to have a flair for optics and many times as I browse through old photos, their flower sometimes leaps from the collection as being particularly emblematic of everyday cannabis or perhaps, even a bit exotic…DSCT…, if not nostalgic…Northern Lights ….
Or dramatic …Raven….or just plain pretty…Purple Punch…many faults have they but making flower is not one of them …not usually that is.

Shoki X 87 Limepop has the Curio optics in spades, presenting a very robust image with a ton of bright rust red pistils in pocketed clusters of density scattered about the entire surface …resembling a sort of wild strawberry. The light to medium green sugar leaf and bud material looks even better than what I had expected.
It seems to resemble Curio’s Golden Strawberry, which I believe is no longer in rotation. Buds are dense, fresh, and mostly conical in shape.
Trichome coverage is replete and predominantly creamy white to clear.(look at Macro photos)

Good For Bowls and Rolls: quite suitable for all

  • Bitter/ Sour lime
  • Pine
  • Earth
  • Herbaceous lemon, mint
  • Spice
  • Lemon Pine Sol base aroma

TASTE:
Remnants of Afghani hashish flicker in the distance as the sweetly rotting cookie aroma of GMO wafts here and there along with a mix of pine and sour lime.

CONCLUSION:
Shoki X 87 Limepop is the result of extensive breeding culminating with the Shoki strain (a hybrid mix of Lime Kush x GMO x TK Skunk) X 87 Durban Chitral ( a mix of Durban Poison x Pakastini Chitral ( landrace Indica). This heady relies heavily on skunk / Haze genetics extending back to a foundation of Jack Herer/ Princess 99 game.

The cerebral side is inspiring, creative, uplifting and increases focus and activates long term memory. Repeat sessions makes you trade this high altitude head buzz for a more swampy sedation so frequent in Afghani and Haze genetics. This exchange is slow but inevitable and shoki x 87 limepop also develops slowelu as the development 


THE LONG ROAD HOME (My Toke…)

Every time I’ve had just about enough of Curio I find something that really moves the needle for me.
For weeks, nay months, I’ve been hovering around their Shoki X 87 Limepop
Don’t think it was the name…

It wasn’t the terpene profile which is quite nice…I don’t know really….maybe because it’s Curio?
But lately having had enough Myrcene is to last a lifetime I was craving Pinene once more…group of small shoki x 87 limepop buds by curio

 

So I begin to look for strains that were high in that. Lo and behold, the highest I could find was Shoki X 87 Limepop.

I finally sprang  for it…And wow.
To say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement.
The thing that did surprise me was the way in which I seemed to be able to perceive the Durban and the Afghan influences separately.

For me there was a finer line rather than a blurry one when the cerebral focus was traded for mental haze.

Along with it came a dense and heavy body high weighing me down as my appetite grew and my focus became less than honed.
Eventually this shifted all the way to dizziness and an almost horizontal creep to a more restful position – Shoki X 87 Limepop is a cultivar with a complex yet solid, genetic background stemming form a wide spectrum of influence from African X Pakistani Landraces with Durban Chitral and the Afghani leanings of Shoki.

The other interesting thing for me was the deepening complexity of the high after repeat sessions. With each successive pull it became more difficult to avoid the gravity of the Afghani and Pakastini kush body-high sedation. The Shoki takes it rightful place at this point and definitely takes the magic carpet ride to a low vibrational idle full-body Stone.
