I wouldn't say Western Winds was especially potent, but certainly not weak. It did have a very nice high. It also did not have a ceiling that I could find. It was well loved. I smoked some with an indica lover, and I didn't want him to think of it as weak, so I rolled a fat joint and smoked it with him. It got more and more euphoric the more we smoked.
I thought the Western Winds I got was a mistake. I thought I got AK47 or something instead because of how compact it was with big buds. Of course, it is another hybrid. When I read about Cambodian having the incense aroma. I changed my mind.
All this is reminding me of the Miss Universe I grew. I think there are similarities between the MU and Western Winds. I thought Miss U had an aroma like bananas, but a woody banana aroma/taste. Both had an very slight asthma feel when smoked. Not lung expansive, but a funny kind of feeling. The only other way I could describe it would be like a very dry wine.
I also think there was some similarity to the highs of Miss Universe and Western Winds. They both had a warm fuzziness to them. Frankly, IMHO, I much prefer the Kali Mist cut that was gifted to me. It vaguely reminds me of Thai Stick with a little more clarity and that distinctive electric vibration (buzz) pulsing through my nervous system.
All that being said, I would LOVE to try pure Cambodian Red, if I haven't already. I remember in the late 70s or early 80s, some small wispy red buds were being sold in California. It was not nearly impressive as Thai Stick to me, but it was very clean/clear, tremendously blissful and sneaky strong. Very high grade high. If it was nearly as potent as Thai Stick, I admit it would be superior due to the quality of the high. That quality was the kind of thing you ache for when you remember it, even decades later.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone,
