Dispensary: Four Twenty
Recommendation: 5 leaves
Because the odors of Colt 45 are so strong, reminiscent of the strong sweet and piney essence of a New York City taxi cab, I dry vaped the strain to get the full taste of the bud. The sweetness, so evident in the smell, never materializes. The taste is earthy, piney and woody; very much an uptown interpretation of the classic cannabis flavor. This is a fancy bud, no doubt, but has some elements of its wild and less sophisticated (but dearly loved) country cousins.
The strain is an indica, a very evident indica, leaning hybrid. There are few elements of a sativa in this bud, but the indica effects are tempered enough to allow the user to be in full control and continue activities. A light to medium pressure sets in on the head after a few hits, this pressure and the effects slowly make their way down relaxing the body, but not to the point of being comatose.
The high is blissful, happy and giddy (and giggly) and develops into a nearly stoned state, but not to the point of sedation or uselessness. At no point did I feel the focused, motivated and industrious effects I look for in a sativa. However, I still felt like I could contribute as a productive member of society while smoking/vaping Colt 45.
All in all, I have to say this is an excellent indica leaning hybrid. If you normally tend towards sativas—but drift into the world of indicas from time to time, this is the bud for you. It will be a permanent fixture on my personal cannabis rotation.
