I'm gonna update smoke reports because I think I was a little harsh with this stuff.
I tend to start using my herbs as soon as they're dry but we all know a cure is essential to get the best out of your plants and now it's been a few weeks they're definitely improving a lot.
I'm vaping a bit of DT1 right now. Smell and taste are as described, perhaps a little more subtle in some notes and more pronounced in others, but broadly hoppy, sweet with parma violets flavour is still true. The effect is improving in quality and duration as well. Maybe a bit more stoney than it was at first but still a good up high which is what I like. Just had a little wave of anxiety creep into my chest. Not bad, just a little uncomfortable for a moment.
No real thoughts on what it could be still. For some reason my mind keeps going to black widow but I would assume a cross as she wasn't the stand out resin producer and lacks the heavy stone old Dutch widow always gave me.
DT2 has really shown the biggest improvement. The smell still isn't too loud but a pleasant mix of spices and sweetness, like a nice baklava or something. Occasional bubblegum notes that carry through to the flavour. The high has come into its own and is a relaxing up feeling with loads of creative energy - plenty of ideas and drive to paint or write or make music. Very special when you find one like this but sadly it looks like my pollination attempt failed so I'll have to try to figure out what it is.
So far I feel it could be SSH. There's a few things about it that just give me the impression that it could be a more indica leaning pheno so I'll need to check the auctions out and hopefully get a pack. I want the mango haze too and she's a sister of SSH so hopefully I'm right about this one. Rapidly becoming the favourite.
DT3 is the heavy stone machine and my opinion hasn't changed on it. Only used late at night if I want to pass out.
DT4 hasn't changed much either, just a touch less smelly and has been overtaken by DT3. Interestingly, despite the stone it has, I went running after a vape of it (plus three beers, some wine and my usual vape regime) last night and it was amazing. I ran in so much pain until my body gave up. It was like I could totally dissociate from my body and focus just on moving my legs and arms, so whilst my core was screaming, I was having an amazing time pounding pavement and tripping out on the street lights. Definitely some potential to be useful there as I normally hate running and only go because my gf forces me
So my thoughts are
DT1 - black widow
DT2 - SSH
DT3 - NLxAfghan
DT4 - nordle
Bit disappointing no one came to offer an opinion but I don't mind that much, this is just a way to catalogue my stuff.
