    nirvana PPP - seems well named

    this was from a 78w cfl micro grow
    grow log link - https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=167587

    the pheno was very indica, extremely squat
    remarkable low odor during flower, i'd say this could be a major stealth strain
    it was flowered for 9 1/2 weeks, fairly mature by other grows of this strain
    just a tinge of amber, quite a few cloudy, maybe 50% cloudy

    the final bud odor was nothing if not different
    1 part mint, 1 part sweet something? and a touch of skunk tossed in
    it smells good, but i couldn't have told you this was weed if i didn't grow it myself

    taste was smooth, but not all that familiar - not fruit, not mint, maybe slightly sweet?

    bud was very resinous, sticky as hell
    i'll give nirvana it's due, this hits hard, i only vaped tiny amounts, maybe 1/20 of a gram
    i wouldn't want to smoke a gram, this stuff does have power

    it's a very different high
    i can function with it during the day, seems ok for focused activity
    if you're not focused, then it's kind of a daze, but not really a couch lock
    it also seems to be low on the anxiety side, not much edge at all
    not a soaring high which might be due to the indica pheno
    some other smoke reports mention a strong up, this pheno was strong, but not that up

    I used to smoke power plant in Amsterdam. That thing kills you off!
    After 1 minute from my first pull I started sweating. Not only me, all my friends was knocked down from it!

    I bought 5 nirvana's PPP seeds since then and one is ready to flower! 10 weeks and I will tell you if it tastes the same :-)

      that does sound pretty close, a little seems to take off the edge
      more is like shock therapy
      i'm curious how the sativa pheno is, i do see some mentions of it in other grow logs

        Nice smoke report, igrowone
        You are right on track with the focused type of high. It's this Durban focused speed trip showing in the parentage. But to me PPP is too indica, heavy and dull, still has this burning energy in the body though. The after-effect is killing me, a combination of empty head and nervous body The 2 plants I've tried both were quite dark and paranoid, definitely not a pleasant trip. But it really stands to its name. You want power, here it is...
        "Wouldn't he remember his first home, what passed for wisdom there, and his fellow prisoners, and consider himself happy and them pitiable? And wouldn't he disdain whatever honors, praises, and prizes were awarded there to the ones who guessed best which shadows followed which? Moreover, were he to return there, wouldn't he be rather bad at their game, no longer being accustomed to the darkness? Wouldn't it be said of him that he went up and came back with his eyes corrupted, and that it's not even worth trying to go up? And if they were somehow able to get their hands on and kill the man who attempts to release and lead up, wouldn't they kill him?"

          Wow, you guys think PP and PPP are killer potent? I've never heard anyone say that before, I've smoked a ton of PP and it's not that potent at all, one of the reasons it's so popular in Amsterdam is because it's only average potency and 'safe' for tourists to smoke. I mean, coffee shop owners don't want to be picking people off the floor and pouring sugar water down their throats all the time so they like to sell weed that tastes nice, has okay potency and doesn't knock people for six.

            you really nailed the description, i suspected the focus part was from the durban
            i understand some will find this dull, really depends on your needs
            for someone with anxiety issues(me for example), it seems to have some potential

            by my experiences, which are not that extensive in modern genetics, it was powerful
            i realize there are stronger, i just haven't gotten to them yet
            but you do see a good number of experienced smokers that seem to find it strong, at least that what i've seen from the posts on PPP

              I think you're both right.. I've grown and smoked a fair bit of (Dutch cut - sat dom) PP and think it's both strong enough to be good/creative/chatty/uppy and yet mild enough to be useful as a daytime tool for people who like to smoke all the time but still need to get shit done in a day


              edit - its a great hash plant too
              edit2 its good to smoke when I'm drunk without giving me a whitey
              edit some more I would give this to people with low tolerance and expect them to enjoy it without it being overpowering
              edit again .. I think I'm going to smoke some now
              test grows and other stories

                Several friends who are not heavy smokers commented on the PPP that it's too strong for them and they don't like it for this reason. I don't think it's suitable to such people unless they want themselves smashed. They enjoy strong Haze hybrids like SSH, NL5xHaze and JH, but say PPP is too raw in its power.
                The only times I've found PPP to be enjoyable, and not just powerfull, is when mixed with alcohol. Then it brings some hysteric laugher and funny talk.

                  I have been playing with some PPP for last few weeks.

                  Brief 1-1.5 hr enjoyable mild sativaish high followed by a sort of sleepy stupor that can last a long time,
                  smoking more doesn't seem to help much and often leads to a mild headache.

                  what I have now has a really cool grape flavor and scent and is most excellent in my vape but the grape was just a fluke.

                  Probably make a good hash plant.


                  YMMV

                    I grew some PPP freebies, it was the first plant that I have grown that I refused to smoke. It was plenty powerful, to say the least. It gave me a very uncomfortable high, mild paranoia and too much introspective thinking.

                    Other people that have tried it, loved it.

                      the 'after buzz' you describe is pretty close to my experience, didn't find it sleepy exactly, more of a daze, but it does last quite a while
                      it does seem to put my anxiety in check pretty thoroughly, which is probably the most desirable part for me
                      the grape pheno sounds like a find, haven't seen anyone else report that one, might be worthwhile breeding stock if you have space

                        Those African sativas can be a trip for sure - PPP = Pure paralyzing pot.

                          I grew power plant from dutch passion years ago, these ppp's are looking very different than those did . The DP power plants were very up but had some hermi issues. One of my PPP's is starting to get a slight minty licorice aroma as well. I have been quite impressed with Nirvanas affordable decent genetics , a lot of bang for the buck and these were free

                            though i don't get that paranoid feeling, i think i can feel the hint of it underneath
                            yoss33 mentioned the durban as being the source of a 'speedy focus'
                            the indica part seems to overwhelm that, for me at least, and seems strangely calming
                            it's really interesting in that of the experiences i've seen here, i can really relate to most of them, just that some traits seem to be focused in different ways between smokers

                              there you go, those are the words i was trying to find for that smell
