Melodious Funk by Chimera seeds report 1 of 2
Strain: Melodious Funk
Breeder: Chimera Seeds
Smoking for me is very ritualistic. I usually smoke after dinner. I have certain things I do before sparking up that lends to the experience and make the journey pleasurable. I like to squeeze the bud,smell the grind, roll the flower, smell it again. I have been smoking this cut and a second cut for about 5 days now.
Flower period: 62 days under LED. Avg RH 30, Temps no higher than 74F no colder than 59F
Cure: dried 5 days, sealed and burped daily 2 weeks, sealed with 62% humidity pack 3 weeks. Total 6 weeks since she was cut.
Appearance: see pic
Trichomes: no shortage for sure. Magnification confirms mostly cloudy, some amber and fewer clear.
Bud: she is not super dense but she isn’t airy either. Good resistance on the squeeze. The nose on the bud is hay, fruit, mild ammonia, nothing special. Grinding the bud is another story. Ground bud is fluffy, moves and settles, bursts with pungent fruit, grapefruit, citrus, petrol, earth, musk, fuel, kush…great aromatics…very pleasing makes you happy just smelling the ground bud.
Smoke: I prefer joints over any other method of ingestion followed by vape.
Joint: freshly rolled…good draw, smooth, no real expansion, taste the fruit, some nice fuel n kush but not over powering, citrus mouth feel with some earth to keep it real. The grapefruit is there more on the exhale and kinda mixes with the other flavors nicely. The kushy taste is also there but not overtly or in your face. She has good flavor balance…not off putting in any way. Takes about 5 mins and she start you off slowly…gradually building momentum. She is very controlled making you drop your guard and just giving in and taking the ride. Starts in the head, ears start ringing so I know she got some sativa in her. You don’t really notice when it hits the body you just realize that you are completely enveloped in the funk. After about 45mins you are floating around, even made me enjoy washing the dishes after dinner…had me humming and washing. Good shit. She’s more head than body maybe 65/35. She is a happy smoke, makes you want to party, dance, talk (wash dishes) but she is just fine watching a movie, looking up at the sky or contemplating. I have shared this cut with friends at a party and everyone loved the taste and the effect. She extremely clear of mind, no fog whatsoever. I would consider this more of a day late afternoon smoke. However, in higher doses she will knock you out. That really is the biggest pro of this particular strain. She lets you drive the whole time. You want easy smooth smoke…hit it light, you want to get gooned…hit it hard. She let you decide where you want to go not like some strains where you take one or two hits and you forget shit or have to sit down till the wave passes over you because it only has one speed…full throttle. Melody let you take charge and you create the journey.
Potency: I would rate this a 7.5/10. I personally think this is the ideal for daytime/anytime weed. I don’t care for weed I have to put down after two hits. I took the time to grow it, roll it, so I want to smoke it and enjoy it. I want to smoke at least half joint and still function.
Taste: 9/10 I think I said it all already. I don’t know I am fucking high.
Effect: 9/10 you are in charge of how wrecked you want to get. Right now I swear I see the eye of Sauron. She is smooth, brings you up slowly, keeps you high for about 3 solid hours…she has legs, and gently sets you down. I haven’t crashed on her yet. I really haven’t stressed how strong she is because I think that is a personal thing but this strain has rung my bell. I cant comment on the medicinal effects since I luckily don’t suffer from any ailment except smoking weed. Ha!
Recommend: Absolutely you need this type of weed in your stash. She is reliable, effective but never overpowering. Smoke her all day.
Vaporizer: Pax portable set to 370F. The effect is different. You feel it more in the head for sure. Taste wise she shines: you taste the fruit 10 fold and she coats the tongue with velvet. You taste her for some time after the hit…very nice. The ear ringing is more pronounced. She is calmer than when combusted but still clean, clear but more mellow. Did I mention she tastes fantastic? My wife prefers her this way.
