Monday was a fun day with buddy out for a visit. He brought complimentary cannabis oil edible muffins, and a pile of two year old Lemon Skunk buds - Nice. The Indica mind numbing effects hit first, then the cheerful and friendly Sativa energy - Always good to see buddy.
Old LEMON SKUNK Buds
The Lemon Skunk 60/40 Sativa-dominant hybrid came from the breeding of two Skunk phenotypes. Genotype would be the Skunk strain genetics, the Skunk phenotype would be the unique characteristics of the Skunk plant after it has adjusted to an environment. So two different Skunk phenotypes were bred together to birth the Lemon Skunk strain. Pheno/Geno Info Source.
These haggard buds were kept cool, and open-air dried for two years to achieve this dullness. Plenty of long pistols and thin sativa leaves - all coated with crystals. A high 3 out of 4 on the fluff scale, a touch leafy - these buds have rarely experienced containment. They would be as dry as dust if it wasn't for the sticky cannabis oils.
Sweet and spicy lemon-lime citrus scent - lots of terpene vapors. Almost smells like blueberry, sweet like tart apples, dried lemon grass - dusty dry old weed smell in there too.
... a high that affects both the body and the mind. The head high is slightly more pronounced and produces a thought provoking and meditative experience.
This trait makes the strain a good choice when engaging in some deep conversation with friends, or when looking for some creative insight during artistic endeavours. The body high produced by the strain is also quite strong and creative calming and even sleepy effects if taken at the right times. The effects generated by smoking this strain have some medical potential when it comes to stress, pain, fatigue, and headaches.
RAW Classic Kingsize Slim Papers
With ample Lemon Skunk buds on hand, I reached for the RAW Classic Kingsize Slim papers, the RAW tips, and the RAW hemp plastic cigarette rolling machine. 32 papers in the Classic RAW pack, I prefer this unbleached raw fiber color. Decently fine papers, similar to the Smoking Eco Hemp papers - I'm guessing 14 grams per square meter weight.
Check out the RAW logo and criss-cross watermarks.
RAW Classic is where it all began. The launch of RAW Classic transformed the smoking culture to a focus on quality and true naturalness. RAW is crafted from vegan, unbleached plant fibers and finished with the purest natural tree sap gumline. Each leaf is watermarked with our proprietary criss-cross steam imprint that helps prevent runs and maintain a smooth, even burn.
Marijuana Cigarette Rolling Machine - the RAW Hemp Plastic Cigarette Rolling Machine assisted with the quick roll up...
Look at that Lemon Skunk Kingsize Spliff Beauty.
Sparked Up - Toked.
Old Lemon Skunk Taste
Buddy was curious to document these bud strain effects - I showed him some posts on smoke.io. We each took a couple tokes off the spliff... A sharp and dry earthy taste that you would expect from over-dried buds. A light lemon-lime citrus - not overly sweet, dry spicy taste. Sweet lemon citrus taste is building. 10 Minutes Later... Feeling a relaxed and comfortable head kush - forehead, front-top of the head, cheeks are all numb. Lips are tingling - full of terpenes. Mind is relaxing, eye lids feel heavy, up beat feels. This is feeling like an Indica - chill.
20 Minutes after First Toke...
Blaze up the Lemon Skunk spliff again. This feels Indica leaning, but there is that touch of upbeat and friendly energy - like with Sativas. 30 Minutes after First Toke... There's a perma grin and upper cheeks tightening setting in. Euphoric social effects. Can feel energy building in the chest. Nice buzz in the forehead and front part of the brain - numb tingling. Drinking water - excellent weather, it's well above freezing, all the snow is melting.

1 Hour and 10 Minutes after First Toke...
Feeling good energy, euphoric, buzzing nicely. Slightly dry mouth, drinking water - the forehead has relaxed a little but is still comfortably numb. Feeling energetic, we're about to play a few holes of frisbee golf.
Frisbee Golf Session
I wouldn't forget about the beech wood bowl - it got cleaned out and topped up with ground up Lemon Skunk buds for the frisbee golf session.
In the second picture below you can see what the frisbee golf goals look like - not exactly regulation - orange fencing around a pole or tree. It works. The first picture below is of the overflowing creek and beaver dam that was next to the course. Good times.
Rockstar Bong Tokes
After the frisbee golf session, we wanted to kick it up a notch. Next up was bong tokes with the RockStar buds. Prepared the Bluetooth speaker stack. Buddy enjoyed the RockStar Bong RIPs - they were extra sweet fruit flavorful after the tame and dry lemon-lime citrus flavored - older - Lemon Skunk buds.
Buddy prepared some cannabis oil muffins for the day. To make the cannabis infused oil, in a deep frying pan he gently simmered olive oil and bud trimmings for a few or four hours. Let it cool, then strained the oil into a mason jar container. Stores the oil jar on a dark and cool shelf. He said he used one tablespoon of oil per muffin, the whole muffin has to be eaten (in case the oil sank to the bottom of the muffin). The next step would be to try one muffin and see how the effects are, then decide if the amount of oil per serving/muffin should be increased.
Gave a couple muffins away to other buddies, i'll be trying one or two of these muffins in a couple days. Instead we each ate one of the 50 mg edible cinnamon rock candies. Sent buddy home with one - I now have one more King Tutankhamon Bubble Hash Rock Candy for another day. Always a fun day with buddy. I've been smoking this Lemon Skunk - night, morning, and day ever since - brings back memories. Mixed some in a blunt with Duke Nukem for an extra blast of flavor - delightful.
