I'll be the Judge of That - Do-Si-Dos
Peace ya'll, Judge here once again with another weekly review! Now, this review here makes a total of 8 strains I've put through the wringer, but I have yet to really explain my process so, let's break it down right quick. Every strain I review becomes my only strain for 24 hours, can't be crossing the streams so to speak! I smoke primarily Fronto King leaf, so it's blunt after blunt for 24 hours; taking notes during each session, to make sure I can absorb as much from her as possible before officially putting the pen to paper. Now, you might say, "But Judge, you can't taste anything in a blunt leaf!" and I would quickly tell you to stfu on some Batman/Robin meme shit, cuz you definitely can, if you are accustomed to smoking blunts and have even a marginally serviceable palette.
Ok, so now that we've got that (and my quick lil blunt haters vent) out of the way, let's get this review popping! This week I've got some gorgeous genetics, an indica dominant hybrid that is well known for being a talented resin producer, Do-Si-Dos (Girl Scout Cookies x Face Off OG). She has some big shoes to fill with her lineage, let's see if she can carry the crown!
Her bag appeal is bangin' right out the gate! Earthy, cookie funk with slight floral notes on the back end. She's right up in your face immediately and she doesn't back down. That sugar cookie sweetness occasionally cuts through the pungent soil nose, but she's clearly got that OG kick. She's slightly minty, which is a bit unexpected yet very welcome, as it gives her a very uplifting scent profile. Her bud structure is impressive as well, swollen and dense cookie form with an almost marbled effect to her green and purple coloring. Her trichome production is very well known, this strain is a favorite amongst extractors and for good reason; she puts out a massive amount of trichs! So powdery you could ski on her, her trich development nearly hides her coloration at a quick glance. She's a sight to behold, for sure!
Her bud feel is great as well, great squeeze, with a slow but steady bounce back and a solid coat of resin across the finger tips. Her terpene profile is crazy with that mint funkiness I mentioned earlier poking through a bit more on the break up. Subtle hints of lime are there, though they play the background. She will have you cleaning your fingers often through out the rolling process, finger hash for days! She was definitely loved throughout her cycle, these buds are nearly perfect in density and form!
On the macro level her trichs are worthy of the cookie lineage; she is caked across the board with a legion of cloudy and amber heads. Clusters of trichomes stand tall like little stoned soldiers, waiting to march on your sobriety. Her interior trichs are even more condensed, it's easy to see why she's an extractors best friend. Often approaching 30% THC, if you don't get a solid yield running her, either your grower sucks or your method does. Let's roast her and see if she can take the heat!
That mint kick is really apparent in her smoke! It's not so overpowering as to make her feel mentholated, but it's a very unique feel on the lungs. Sugar cookies, mint and fresh moist soil are in every exhale, she's precise in her olfactory attack. A bit harsh on the lungs, though it could be the mint feel. She was definitely cured well, with a pristine white ash. Her high is lethal in it's effectiveness; she kicks in within 10 minutes and doesn't relent! She is most definitely for the more experienced smoker, beginner beware! She's equipped with a very gripping body high with a strong sedative effect, don't expect her to be your wake and bake companion, unless you want to have to wake up again in a little while.
Overall, she is a definite keeper; eye catching bag appeal, a really unique, minty nose, and a crippling high make her one to keep an eye out for. Both of her parents' genetics are equally put on display here and the final result is a serious win for me. She's not for the uninitiated, but she's a winner, for sure. As always, your mileage may vary, but I give Do-Si-Dos a solid 4 out of 5 blunts.
