GENETICS & GROW
This is Wold of Seeds’ Our Origin Collection, Wild Thailand. They sell this as a 100% Sativa from the islands of Ko Chang. Flowering time is between 65-90 days (~9-13 weeks). Outdoor height can reach 3 meters, indoors it’s said to be capable of half that.
Squid grows indoor in Ontario, using auto-pots and LED light. If you follow Squid on Instagram, you saw he gave this plant very little vegetation time, flowering it almost immediately.
Breeder’s description claims the smell and flavours ‘will show you Asia and effects will take you to the temples of Bangkok’, and after a year stuck at home, I’m willing to go along with that claim.
Visually, the flower is stunning. Morphology is generally conical, coming to a shaper peak with a wider base. Colouring stays in the green tones, complimented by orange stigma. Up close the trichome detail is near flawless, forming a crystallized matrix along the jagged surface of the flower.
Feel is soft and plump. I’ve had it for weeks and the buds are still tender, breaking off the stem with a crisp snap, and producing fluffy grinds.
Scents are uplifting creamy tropical fruity, curbed by pine, and dampened further oily earths. Depth of character is really in the earthy, oil mixture, which takes some influence from the softer pine notes.
Taste is pine centred, with secondary notes of flat fruit and soured grass. Stemming outward from the central notes, the profile has multiple edges that touch into spiced wood and green herb that spans from cool cucumber to hot eucalyptus. With use, the woods give way to showcase the dimension in the green herbal tones, which is quite deep. Character occupies friendly territory, but its persistence is intense. The way the eucalyptus herbal tones work the spices, the effect is undeniably cerebral.
