hi zif....so its still too early to give a fair impression of the buds since they are only about three weeks into the cure. That said, greedy me has had a few sample nugs and I have an early report to satiate inquiring minds. taste wise its a home run. Pine, fuel, camphor/cedar, and floral notes. the pine is not surprising given she's carried that since flower, but the camphor/cedar was unexpected and is oh so good. The taste is somewhat bright or sharp and has an almost menthol quality but there is something in the mix I cant quite pick out that is earthy and woody and rounds out the flavor. As it burns, the taste becomes softer and really enjoyable...I really have a hard time putting it down...its that good. The effect: I really expected a relaxing type of smoke but that's not what I got from the plant. Very cerebral and thought provoking effect at the onset with maybe a touch of body but nothing I'd call relaxing. The effect can come on strong with head pressure and mild disorientation. I have shared this with my wife a couple of evenings and it has kept us up longer than we wanted and in her case, she felt a bit restless at the height of the buzz...it does fade nicely and allows rest but only after the ride. Again, that was about 10 days into the cure so I know it will settle for sure...just how much is the real unknown however. I don't have another plant to compare as the other seedlings failed in a mishap at the beginning of the year in my veg room and this was the only NLxChem survivor. Personally, I really like what came out...especially the taste. I was hoping for a more relaxing smoke but that was just an expectation I had from previous NL i have smoked...this is something different. Also, I don't have any experience with the chem bx so I don't know what part it plays in the effects department. Once more members post their findings we will have a better picture of this varietal. At any rate, I really the smoke...
