Strain Integrity

From Papa’s Herb, ” Papa’s Skywalker Kush is the creation of the breeders at Reserva Privada, and was first grown in Southern California. The team dusted a female Skywalker OG, which is itself OG Kush crossed with Skywalker, with pollen from OG Kush, which boasts Chemdawg and Lemon Thai in its lineage. The resulting Skywalker Kush inherited an incredibly high THC concentration and distinctly sour hashish aroma that the Papa’s Fam loves.

From, ” Skywalker Kush, also known as “Skywalker OG Kush,” is an indica dominant hybrid (85% indica/15% sativa) strain created through crossing the powerful OG Kush X Skywalker strains. If you’re a fan of the Star Wars family, you need to get your hands on this bud. With heavy indica effects and a powerful 18-25% average THC level, Skywalker Kush is perfect for any heavy-duty indica lover. The high creeps up on you slowly with a calming sense of deep relaxation and well being that permeates your entire body. As this high builds, you’ll slowly succumb to a deep body buzz that pulls you into deep sedation and an incredibly sleepy state …. ”

A cerebral Indica

Papa’s Indica by Papa’s Herb (Aphria) cost $23.95 for 3.5 grams with 19.24% THC and a faint exotic hay scent.  Our test amount was 0.26 grams.

The “high” starts with a euphoric assault by the usual suspects time dilation and short term memory actors.  “Surprise” is the word that comes to mind describing the “high.”  “Not bad” are the next two words.  There’s mental disarray leading to mass confusion as blissfulness emerges.  All of this excitement in the first ten minutes is a promising start with happiness bubbling to the surface.  At the end of fifteen minutes, creativity enters our mind decoupling us from reality drifting through a stress free blissful Indica wonderland.

We can feel the cerebral Chemdawg and Lemon Thai influence in the “high.”  For an Indica, the creativity is forceful enough to create mind locks not unlike GG#4.  We started this review with “negative expectations” and we got “Surprise.”  We really like this “high.”  After two hours, the “high” left us with a chilled and relaxed mind and body.

Activity pairing for this energetic cerebral indica is best for the latter part of the day.  While the first hour is filled with an energetic creative “high,” the second hour “high” is more sedating.  Plan accordingly.

Would we buy this again?  Maybe.  There are so many good options for Canadian cannabis consumers.  As an example in a Reddit OCS post today, OS.Reserve  Indica 14 grams 22.5% THC for $87.97, or $21.99 for 3.5 grams.  If you have not tried Skywalker Kush, however, this is a decent rendition of Skywalker Kush for a relatively cheap price.

On an investment note in a recent interview with Aphria CEO, Irwin Simon said Aphria is growing market share through their Brands.  Papa’s Herb is one of those brands to help Aphria grow their cannabis revenues.  With the Tilray merger, Irwin Simon believes the new Tilray will have 30% of the Canadian cannabis market.  If you are wrong Irwin, don’t worry because Aphria’s shareholders will pay for it.
