Grower: Fire Farms

Rating: 4.5

I had a hard time understanding why this bud is called Sticky Buns. Fire Farms has grown some of the most beautiful buds I’ve come across, and this giant and bulbus dusted multi-hued green and orange bud is no exception, but there was no apparent connection to sticky buns out of the jar. Sure, the bud is sticky—but it smells earthy, lemon citrussy, herby with strong notes of menthol—more like a lemon cake. I took a dry hit and finally the flavor of candied pecans made things clear. After combustion even more came out, butter, pecans, vanilla, and a splash of citrus. A taste so sweet and reminiscent of a pecan bun that I was tempted to brew a pot of coffee.

Sticky Buns does a good job of relaxing muscles, easing stress and bringing on a happy and mildly stoned feeling. It slows the body down while leaving the mind more or less in tact and is quite a functional and therapeutic high.

I recommend Sticky buns to both novice and experienced consumers for its delicious tastes, alluring aroma and manageable high. While the bud is strong, it is not as strong as Fire Farms’ usual strength, and this may be the only appropriate Fire Farms buds for novice consumers to experiment with—though in moderation. Experienced users will also appreciate being able to manage their high—rather than surrender to the flower.
