Note: he said he had already done smoke reports on my gear, here they are ,,,,,,,,,,
I went an visited with Rid yesterday.
He introduced me to a few of the strains he has created.
The first thing we smoked was the Colorado Thunder Fuck.
We had around 1/2 a jay or less.
Rid is right!
There is no ceiling with this stuff!
It is smooth, great tasting weed!
We also smoked some Holy Diver and right before I left, I got a smooooooth bong rip of Wonderland.
All of his smoke has an earthy hash taste.
Like incense with floral undertones of coffee and spice.
What I find most impressive, is most of the buds I saw that he grows are reddish brown, loaded with well cured brown/red pistils everywhere.
I brought some green Crack and Kosher Kush.
My Green Crack looks like lime Jello compared to his reddish brown trich-laden buds.
Totally different look and taste.
He gave me a nice sample of this one he calls, "Little Bush".
It was a "one and done", since he has no seeds or clone.
I smoked this one when i got home last night.
I love this treasure and would have considered this an excellent strain!
Like I said, the four that I sampled all have a similar look, taste and bud density.
I will do a proper smoke report later this morning.
The labels rubbed off the bags, but I am a quick study and remembered and re-labeled them last night.
I also have some beans of Rid"s recent work...
Colorado Thunder Fuck (which just moved up the batting order to, "on deck"),
and several other great project beans.
Most of the seeds are connected by lineage and stages of crosses.
I want to grow the Holy Diver also.
Later tonight I am going to smoke the Namaste and give a proper report.
Thanks for having me over Rid, I will be doing some grow reports soon as well!
I smoked 1/2 jay of Green Crack on the way down to see Rid.
15 minutes after we smoked the CTF, I was listening to music, chilling on the couch and felt like the first "wake and bake" of the day.
Definitely a cutter that will stomp on anything else you already smoked!
My Green Crack is like a shiny sports-car.
It hauls ass, will get you there, but Rids smoke is like a slow creeping tank that will drive right over the top of that shiny car and crush it with old school steel!
Ok...so Holy Diver is very good also!
I couldn't stop at one hit.
I had four.
It gave me a couple real good expansive draws.
I got a little choked up when I got over ambitious.
The Hold Diver socks you between the eyes right away.
It has that light pressure you feel building behind your forehead.
It's almost like someone is inflating your head with fairy dust.
You feel it between the eyes right away, and then it gets a little more foggy.
Not a couchlocker though.
I am on my back porch on a beautiful sunny morn, and the colors and hues are so bright and purty!
I feel like when I smoke a good haze.
I have that light fog, but everything is bright and colorful.
Kind of an oxymoron...Bright fog.
I could do some fishing and hiking on this!
I hate smoking some heavy indica doms in the morning, it's those mornings when all your day plans get revised and changed to activities which require remote controls and sitting.
I have no munchies at all. Yesterday either.
If I start growing some of Rid's strains, Ben & Jerry's stock is going to go down.
I will say that I didn't have the urge to hit a fast food joint on the way home last night.
(Nothing wrong with a bowl of Crunchberries at midnight sometimes however)
Anyhow, back to the Holy Diver.
The taste is a nice smooth hashy taste, like the other three we smoked yesterday.
I noticed a little sweet floral undertone, like an old school skunk or Afghani in there somewhere.
I noticed Rid's buds have an oily, sticky tightness to them.
They break into smaller little hard calyxes filled with more hard little rocks.
I would recommend a grinder for these types.
You can break them and break them, but they just make smaller little hard goo balls.
You can get finger hash after cleaning a bud.
The Namaste is actually the prettiest IMO.
It has nice thumb size tootsie rolls of reddish brown goodness.
I haven't touched, smelled or smoked it yet.
It just looks real nice.
From what I have seen, Rid is very close to the taste, smell, buzz of what I remember
I have always felt some of the greatest highs I have experienced were of old landrace types like Columbian gold, Panama Red, Thai Sticks.
All of these are reddish brown, sticky, earthy tastes.
great work Rid.
My buddy came buy this morning and we smoked some Holy Diver.
he loved it and was pretty ripped. We tossed that bolo string game with the rungs on a ladder. I think some people call it ladder golf or something.
He kept fucking up the score and eventually just gave up.
I gave him a nice bud of the Namaste when he left this morning and called him an hour ago.
He actually said he smoked 1/2 a joint and put it down.
He said it was trippy, almost psychedelic and and used those words to describe it.
He said,"that was trippy, almost psychedelic man, it made my ears ring!"
That is what Rid has been refering to.
That's from a 60 year old hippy who doesn't own a computer or refer to mj as we do.
He wants to know when I am going to grow some!
I just smoked 1/2 jay of Namaste.
I smoked a joint yesterday, but was doing yard work, fishing, active most the day, so didn't give a fair assessment.
I just finished around six hits from a joint.
I felt it around the second hit, or two minutes in.
It's kind of a behind the head buzz.
It's not as visual as the Holy Diver, but more relaxing and calming.
The buds are beautiful!
They are reddish brown all the way through.
They crumble into little moist bits that smell of sandalwood and have an oily hashy feel to them.
I like the taste, look and smell of the Namaste the best.
I really love that Rid's buds all have that reddish brown all the way through.
Very well cured, dried, harvested.
The Lil Bush had more light colored almost golden buds. They were like little marbles of goodness.
The Namaste smokes like a dream (again I think that has to do with Rid's harvest/cure techniques).
It never goes out, and slowly smolders awaiting your next drag.
It will choke you up if you hit it hard.
It is the best tasting of the three IMO.
It has a good relaxing balanced buzz. I smoked it 15 minutes ago, and it's still creeping as I type.
Of all of Rid's I have smoked, I like them all for the following reasons..
CTF, because it was awesome and the buzz had legs.
Namaste for the tatse, smell, beauty all around.
Lil Bush for a serious cutter when you have been smoking other weed all day.
Holy Diver for a quick hard hitter that gives some bright colorful get up and do shit buzz.
That's how it worked for me.
I am going to drop a couple CTF Rid, I want to get that one going soon.
That 1/2 jay we first smoked was the best of all of them!
I would smoke all of them and be thrilled, I just like them in that order.
That Lil Bush was the shit Rid!
