Overall: There’s been some stellar apple crosses lately like @alienlabs Cosmic Crisp – @lumpysflowers Apple Fritter and @backpackboyz4twenty Apple Gelato so I was more than pumped to pick another strain off the vine for sampling.
As I crack open the jar there is a whisper of sour spearmint. I have to bring the bud up to nose and crack it to discover faint notes of sweet cream, salt, and something that resembles the smell of the air inside a room with a highly chlorinated pool. Weird, man. Even though they’re quiet, these terps tell me that we could be in for a very interesting flavor profile.
If you can imagine what it’s like to pick up an anvil made of Styrofoam, well that’s what it feels like picking up these buds. Clearly dense, but lacking weight, this one is throwing me for a loop. This is my first experience from Balanced LA, and it was picked up as part of a bundle from a @pauseplay420 box – I hope nothing went wrong in transit. The package date is 8/11 so I’m only cracking into this with less than a month on the shelf life, we shouldn’t have this problem.
Inhale is smooth and delicate, and on the exhale I get a cleansing green apple candy flavor that has a slight floral element like Zkittles, but not aggressive. There’s a velvet soft cream that turns into the powder-like sensation you get from licking the outside of a marshmallow. Don’t judge.
With crosses like Apple Gelato x OG Kush I should be salivating over sour, musky, forest-like notes. Geez, I’m getting excited just thinking about it. But unfortunately that wasn’t close to anything I got.
The Fire Scale: 5/10 flame-xedis

Just like the famous Sunday brunch beverage, Mimosa will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed, and engaged. This cross is between Clementine and Purple Punch 2.0. with sweet citrus aromas matched with a fruit punch-like taste, leaving you with an excellent mid-level buzz. Just like the drink Mimosa, if your enjoyment gets to the best of you, the trajectory of your day may need a little altering.
Light green flowers covered in layers of frosty trichomes and it smells a lot like it tastes. Hints of pine and hops dominated by creamy overtones. When smoked or vaped White Cookies has a smooth creamy taste with hints of a piney hops flavor. Expect a quick onset of a euphoric, cerebral, and upbeat feeling. Great for thinking deep thoughts, creating great works of art and building things!
Grease Monkey, Gorilla Glue#4 x Cookies and Cream, is a heavy Indica fueled body buzz. Two hybrid strains, that allow their Indica genetics to alleviate those aches and pains. Also, a night time favorite with a heavier dose. Gorilla Glue#4 with Cookies and Cream, creates a sweet earthy flavor with a pungent overtone. This strains effects will stay with you, like a great mechanic.
What do you get when you crossing a Heavy Sativa Dominate strain like, Lemon OG Haze “Lime Pheno”, with an Indica dominate strain like, Starkiller OG? You get OG Lime Killer. A motivational, uplifting, euphoric cerebral buzz with a calming overtone. A sweet, Lemon-lime citrus mix on the inhale. But, a floral earthy exhale. Enjoying this Strain is perfect for all day time activities.
