More than not, LPs are promoting their brand strain, which is some variation of classics. Broken Coast promote brands like Quadra (Headband) and Galiano (Northern Lights). This is how it is done. The rendition of Headband and Northern Lights are best of class of these strains.
In a joint, it is a relatively smooth flavourful smoke with hints for berries and spice. Galiano starts slow and the climb last for the first 15 minutes after inhalation. You feel the body relaxation immediately with a functional body high compared to a full heavy indica body high where walking is a chore. If you are stressed, this will help alleviate your stress. Happiness and euphoria are well expressed as your high builds. By 15 minutes, you will hit peak cruising altitude.
Initially, mental alertness and clarity is good, which makes it useful for creative projects. The indica heritage, however, reduces the energy level and therefore the best use is just chilling with creative thoughts. We find this strain to be great for solitude activity like chilling listening to music. Watching TV is a bit too demanding and takes away from the high. The mental alertness and clarity does not last as the high progress the indica sleepiness creeps in creating a haze. This variation of Northern Lights is stronger as evident by hints of indica scent.
Our test is base on a 0.20 to 0.25 g dosage or joint. We found that Galiano scales very nicely. Increase dosage equates to increase intensity and effects. At higher dosage, psychedelic effects are present. Your brain cycle kicks up and your head can literally feel the presence of Northern Lights buzzing. OK, maybe it is not Northern Lights but your brain tingles or crackles. Let the evening festivities begin feeling.
The duration of the high is two hours but what made it stood out is the first hour is a solid flat line at peak level for an hour. This is our mark for a good quality product.
