Lemon Topaz S-1 Flower Sparkles Like A Rocky Mountain Gem

Herb Hightower checking back in with you all after some time spent in the citrus gem high country of Lemon Topaz S-1. Thanks for tuning in for this cannabis flower strain review and this time the setting is a wonderful hiking trail in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains with some Lemon Topaz S-1 nugs.

Lemon Topaz S-1 Strain

Hiking while stoned can be dangerous and I’m not advocating that you go get lost in the woods high as giraffe balls on stilts but in a controlled setting with a sober driver, stoned hiking is a surreal experience that will bring you closer to nature and re-energize your soul. You know that sense of accomplishment when you get to the end of the hike or summit a mountain, feels pretty good right? Well, the last week or so I’ve spent some time hiking and reflecting with the wonderful bud Lemon Topaz S-1 I picked up at a High Level Health dispensary, and every time I smoke this weed I get that awesome high like I’ve just done something amazing even off the hiking trail.

So, after four hikes and many bowls finished, let’s come out from our Rocky Mountain high to break down the fabulous flower, Lemon Topaz S-1 while focusing on appearance, aroma, taste, and effects of high.

Upon examining these loose, light, and fluffy buds it’s clear there are multiple shades of green making up these nugs with a medium level of trichome dusting. If I had to point to an unusual part of this cannabis it’d be the orange blades most closely related to arm hairs. I know, silly reference right but with most buds I’ve come across recently the orange hairs tend to encircle the rest of the flower but these orange hairs are funny as they jut away from the bud like someone’s arm hairs. Funny to think about arm hair and then move onto smell but that’s what we’re doing! The aroma was overwhelming lemon, surprise, but what was a surprise was a faint trace of cinnamon that joined the lemon. When tasting, I find it helpful to pack a clean, freshly ground bowl and hit it without the flame first because the taste is much purer than once it’s burnt. So, when I did that it tasted like fresh, lemon toothpaste, not sure I’ve ever seen let alone had lemon toothpaste but that’s what it tasted like. Once I lit this 25.57 Max THC premium cannabis, everything about the hit was first class down to the color of the smoke and the clean, earthy aftertaste. After four hits or so the effects gave me a cool, sense of accomplishment.

Old Herb recommends this Sativa for public stoniness because you can carry on a conversation with non-stoned people and for Sativa this strong that’s a great pat on the back for Lemon Topaz S-1. Here’s to getting high, high up in the mountains.

Lemon Topaz S-1 is bred from Rare Lemon AK-47 and B.O.G. to create a cool, powerful high.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

As delightful as the holidays may be, a week-plus of gifts and celebrations can be draining on all of us — and our bank accounts. After ten days of holiday parties, Christmas shopping, plane rides and a little work sprinkled in between, all I wanted when I got back to Denver was a nice, portly doob in my hands and my feet on the table. Fresh out of weed and low on funds when I landed, I decided to try my luck with a pre-roll at High Level Health on my way home.

HLH’s shop near the intersection of Lincoln Street and Ninth Avenue is a few convenient steps from the Westword office, so it’s not like I was unfamiliar with the place. With $30 eighths after a coupon discount, it’s hard to beat the dispensary’s stanky versions of Moonwalker and Sour OG. I was only in need of a one-night stand, though, so I asked the budtender for something good for a solo sesh. He said the Lemon Topaz pre-roll was a sweet-tasting smack in the face, so I pounced on the one-gram fatty for $10 after tax.

A creamy blend of Lemon AK-47 genetics and Bubblegum, Lemon Topaz is an indica-leaning hybrid that’s exclusive to HLH. Hearing that my joint was made of larfy nugs and bottom-dwelling buds was an expected downer, but the price was still fair, and the shop’s budtenders hadn’t steered me wrong before. Once I got home, a few fruity whiffs from the bottle kept me optimistic; I just hoped it wouldn’t be too dry, as the flower in pre-rolls is usually well aged.

Delicate citrus notes came through during some drags before I lit up, but the dominant flavor profiles were fruity and earthy, which was great for drowning out the bitter aftertaste leaves are known for. The leafy presence couldn’t have been big, however, because the one-gram cone was uncommonly easy on the throat, as I took each berry-flavored puff to Neverland. I rarely smoke an entire pre-roll by myself (they’re too harsh), but this was smooth enough to cheef until the end. Not that it took long: My worries about the dryness ended up being well founded, and each hit seemed to take a half-inch off the joint.

A clear high took over my head midway through the sesh, and pulses of warm relaxation moved down my body within a half-hour. Any concentration I’d had disappeared quickly: I stared at a Jimmy John’s menu for a good fifteen minutes before ordering the same turkey sub I always do. Lemon Topaz burned my stress away, as I’d hoped, but it burned my mind away as well — and that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing after looking at my credit-card statement.
