Smooth mouthfuls of the sweet White Widow spliff - Rolled Up with an IRIE Extra Light Hemp Paper - from "Mamma Jamma Bonus Pack". Had a chance to enjoy the Super Wolf Blood Moon this past Sunday - captured some pictures of the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse.
White Widow 60/40 Sativa-Dominant Hybrid
White Widow is covered with long white crystals that clump together like an icing. The spindly bright orange hairs covered with crystals remind me of spider legs. THC content is 16.3%, CBD content is 0.07%. Bright and sweet tomato sauce flavor on exhale. With a light citrus lemon-lime, pine, and cannabis taste in the background. The full bodied White Widow smoke is a mouthful - with plenty of terps to make the inside of the mouth tingle.
The White Widow buds have a sweet tomato sauce - with a touch of lemon and earthy cannabis scent.
IRIE Extra Light Hemp Papers
Breaking out the IRIE Extra Light Hemp pack of papers for this White Widow bud roll up.
This is the Mama Jama Bonus Pack with 64 x 1-1/4 length rolling papers. There's a bonus Sticker Inside! - only 62 more papers to go - "Interleaved and Creased for Easy Rolling".
White Widow buds chopped up - tasty looking kief crystals on the tray. You can see the sheerness of the paper on the pack below. The inside cover can be seen even clearer when I press down on the paper - near transparent with white hemp hairs evenly strengthening it - "Slow Burning".
"Stuff Me - Roll Me - Smoke Me" - IRIE's parent company is Allied Tobacco - Rolling Supreme. These papers were "Produced in China with thin European Hemp Paper".
The White Widow spliff is Stuffed, Rolled, Ready for Smoking...
Super Wolf Moon and Approaching Lunar Eclipse
Super Moon is when the moon is passing close to the earth - the moon appears larger, more details can be seen. The Super Moon appears largest and slightly orange when it is close to the horizon. The first full moon of the year is called the Wolf Moon - see the first picture below. As a side note, a Blue Moon is when you have two full moons in a month, like on the 1st and the 29th - the second full moon for the month is called a Blue Moon. A Lunar Eclipse is when the earth passes in between the Sun and the Moon, blocking the sunlight that normally reflects off the moon.
It takes a little more than two hours for the full lunar eclipse to occur, then another couple hours for the earth's shadow to move back off of the moon. In the last picture above you can see one-third of the moon being eclipsed by the earth's shadow. The second picture above shows just before the eclipse begins - notice the flare out of light around the moon is absent from where the earth's shadow is approaching.
The Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon
When the moon is being eclipsed from the sun's rays by the earth, it has a red tint to it - the Blood Moon. In the pictures below you can see the progression to the full Blood Moon. Unfortunately the red isn't as brilliant in the pictures and may be hard to see on some devices, there was a little overcast by then - and with the -27C (-17F) temperature, there was a light frost raining down from the air. The eclipse started at 9:36PM EST - Sunday Jan 20, 2019. The full Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon was at 12:12AM EST - Monday Jan 21, 2019. By 2:48AM EST, the earth's shadow was no longer cast onto the moon - the eclipse had ended.
Often the astrological events can't be seen from where I am, clouds make it difficult, or I forget. I was happy to witness and capture some of this special lunar eclipse.
It was -27C (-17F) that night - the Lunar Eclipse and White Widow spliff were a nice distraction.
Powerful smoke, left some in the bowl for later. Plenty of creative and happy energy with these White Widow buds - cheerful and bubbly. A solid body buzz with a lot of interesting feels in different places. Entertaining, energetic, outgoing - an enjoyable daytime buzz.
