Gifted Curators offers “DC weed at its finest.” One of our cannabis connoisseurs, Kushn-Pain, sampled some legendary strains from Gifted Curators to review for Urban Aroma readers. Read on for Kushn-Pain’s first heady review of Rainmaker. You can almost smell these gorgeous buds through the screen.
The aromas of spiced fruit and rich topsoil brighten my face when I bring the open jar of Rainmaker to my nose. The inhalation sensation goes to my third eye, and down to the tip of my nose while it spreads across my eyes. This “raccoon face” feeling makes it easy to see why Rainmaker may help with glaucoma.
The bright green nugs are spongy, dense and lightweight. A white trichrome crust lays heavy over the entire flower. The magnifying glass reveals red hairs and deeper greens, as well as tiny resinous bits. It’s almost too pretty to rip apart and set ablaze…. almost.
It’s time for my Two Tokes Test.
The first toke has a pungent nasal exhale and sour-lime taste. The Rainmaker is drowning my tongue in puddles of salivary deliciosity. I jump into another juicy drag. Yup, smooth and flavorful.
The head is gradual, full and as the heat decarbs the weed it enhances the exciting aroma. This potent strain is very upper-body, with a high that gets heavier with time. The limonene effects are good for an hour or two of stress-relieving mental clarity before the myrcene, caryophyllene and indica assert a chillaxin’ dominance. Smoking Rainmaker is akin to getting a temple, face and shoulders massage.
Rainmaker is the offspring of Citral Skunk x Mandarin Skunk, which explains the sharp sweet stink which lingers and has neighbors making excuses to knock on the door. (I open it. This is definitely a phenotype to share and show off with friends.)
Rating: 9.4 out of 10. While this is a quality medicine, the recreational aspect only lasted a few hours. Then it was time to curl up with some hazelnut chocolate chip ice cream and hot green tea.
