According to Leafly, “ Durga Mata, bred by Paradise Seeds, is an indica-driven strain. Despite being 90% indica, it acts unlike other predominately indica strains. With flavors best described as reminiscent of Turkish Delight, it offers a long-lasting relaxing body buzz without the couch potato effect. This strain has a natural resistance to pests and survives through rough treatment, which makes it a recommended choice for beginners and outdoor growers. ”
From the OCS website, ” Durga Mata, the mother Hindu goddess, is a 90% Indica strain with roots originating in the natural landraces of South Asia. The moss green arrow-shaped buds are speckled with amber hair and coated in a sweet resin from a myriad of crystal trichomes. The earthy, sweet and citrusy aroma is reminiscent of Italian Panettone. ”
Note: There are two types of Durga Mata. Durga Mata 2 is the CBD version. This Durga Mata is the THC version.
A Hindu Divinity
Packaged on March 26, 2020, Durga Mata by Emerald Health Therapeutics with 19.3% THC cost $25.95 for 3.5 grams smelling like exotic citrusy Sativa. The bud structure was also light like a sativa. Our test amount was 0.26 grams.
The “high” starts with a sativa euphoric feel as we inhale. By the end of the session, we were underway getting on the Expressway ramp to the Land of Divinity. The build was steady with increasing euphoric intensity and a growing sense of happiness. Time sped through the first 15 minutes like an express train leaving the station. Between the 10 and 15 minute mark, creativity starts to blossom filling our minds with dreamy joy as we quickly take our seats for the Magic Carpet ride to a magical wonderland.
Intense cerebral stimulation with radiating blissfulness is the hallmark effect for Durga Mata, a Hindu Divinity. At the half hour mark, the Durga Mata has completely sedated our bodies and control of our minds to transport us to an Enlightened state of Being giving us a glimpse of Divinity. Durga Mata Durga Mata Durga Mata the chant to enter a trandenscental state of existence … to return for a brief moment to a place where we all come from.
The Verdélite facility and team for Durga Mata are elite growers and their future products will be under a new company umbrella. The other strains from these growers are Chemdog and Grapefruit GG1, which are also must try strains that are cheap and super potent. The entire “high” is a solid three hour extravaganza leaving us completely satisfied.
Activity pairing for Durga Mata can straddle both social and private moments. The sativa effervescent euphoria with creative sparks and radiating blissfulness are great for social interactions. The intense cerebral fireworks wrapped with in Bliss is alway great for those private moments of reflection, rejuvenation and refreshment.
Durga Mata by Emerald Health Therapeutics
Durga Mata is a special 90/10 Indica with Sativa like effects. The Durga Mata rendition by the Verdélite facility and team is superb.
Cost: $25.95 for 3.5 grams
Would we buy this again? We would buy from the Verdélite facility and team again. This Durga Mata hits in the $30 to $40 per 3.5 grams price range, a top shelf product. This is a double whammer winner with price and potency.
On an investment note, the decision to sell the Verdélite facility and team to a “Shell” company is to bring a craft grower to market just like GTEC, Rubicon or 48North is to make more money? (It’s actually better to fund privately when it is a small business or do PIPE deals like Rubicon.) The problem is two folds; being profitable with a smaller revenue base and the burn of the listing cost of a public company is very expensive. Having a lot of experience in taking private companies public, the traditional minimum $30 million revenues and profitable are critical criterias to achieve to survive the public market. Only tech companies have been able to defy those metrics. “Weed” companies are not tech companies because tech companies can be extremely scalable and profitable.
