I have been meaning to get my hands on Craftsman’s bud for a while now. Grape Stank is the first bud I have tried of his, and man does it set the bar high! Stanky, stanky sour grapes all up in my nose! The aroma: Pungent, gassy, sweet, sour, and sweet berry odors filled my apartment—getting even stronger when ground—is intoxicating (I suppose literally). The flavor: sweet, sour berries with overlays of lemon and an everlasting aftertaste of cardamom is reason enough to pick this up. One of the best tasting buds I have come across.
The effects move quickly from a heavy and dreamy head high to a full, pleasant, and relaxed body high. This bud also has a happy and confident effect. After smoking a joint, I went down to the lobby to pick up my food delivery and I truly felt like I was king of the world—just on top of everything and super content with myself. The bud never made me sleepy—but it did drain all energy from my body. I really wanted to smoke more but did not have the added will to meet this ambition. Instead, I lay about on my couch an undefined amount of time watching Thai Top Shelf’s YouTube channel (which is a very excellent way to pass the time).
I highly recommend Grape Stank to experienced users. That flavor is amazing—coats the mouth and will leave you smacking your lips wanting more. The effects are fully relaxed. This may be one of those strains which is just too good for novice users. I am not sure they deserve the flavor—they need to work their way up to this bud.
