GRAPE JELLY DONUT
Genetics: Birthday Cake x Grape Sherbet
From: Urban Pharm – Discontinued
Sometimes there’s comfort in knowing that certain dispensaries have consumption licenses. Fortunately, in San Francisco, Urban Pharm has one as well as the Barbary Coast, Apothecarium, and Sparc. It’s hard toking up and being social in a city that barely allows having pets, couples, and smoking while living in a sublet or an apartment.
The truth is Grape Jelly Donut is best enjoyed for indoor use. It is a heavy indica bred from two scrumptious strains — Birthday Cake x Grape Sherbert respectively — that herald a ganja-y notes when smoked.
The nugs were thick, compact, and sticky. There were barely any stems after breaking the thick, spongy flower. This allowed me to just shove it in my metal grinder — a generic Santa Cruz shredder.
Since Urban Pharm, like Connected Cannabis Co. and Purple Star, have pop top plastic containers — the flowers’ smell quickly fades over time. Beyond that it smells sweet and pungent… almost intoxicating like the filling of a jelly doughnut with hints of yeasty sweet fried dough.
As is – It has a sharp hint of mint that dissolves into a rather bitter sweet, almost chocolatey taste. Like a Cadbury Fruit and Nut bar — I wouldn’t say this is herbal, it’s more reminiscent of green fruit, dull and absolutely inedible.
Combusted – Bitter and earthy. It’s a ganja type of weed where a thick coat of resin fills the mouth and makes the smoker salivate.
Grape Jelly Donut is for people that love being couch bound. It takes away the anxiety by making the user knock out. Unlike Birthday Cake it doesn’t make you crave for anything. It actually dulls the taste buds but provides a little appetite.
Will I smoke this again? Maybe. But I need to get used to it.
