Second place winner at the 2014 High Times' Cannabis Cup and first place winner at the Emerald Cup in 2007, Black Lime Special Reserve has good reason to be sitting on the top shelf of anyone's collection. Aficionado Seed Bank made a special cross that will have fans of all three classic parents mighty happy. By crossing Northern Lights, Purple Kush, and Chemdawg Special Reserve, breeders really outdid themselves in mind, body, and history.
With a fully consistent high, low, and average THC testing of 19% users can bank on a heady high that is weighted in all the right ways. The Black Lime flowers are small and minty green with piecey buds covered completely in white trichomes and light amber hairs, giving it a glow worthy of its moniker. The aromas are highly citrusy, with lime and pepper being the most prominent on the nose and a full slam of lime and earthiness on the tongue.
The high is best described as euphoric with a bit of tingles and a lot of focus. It is energetic in nature, but soothing by design. You may find your mind is on overdrive, hyper-focused and motivated, though not entirely able to do much as your body is diving deeper and deeper into relaxation. The slow creep of tranquility overtakes your core, making its way to your limbs and up to your head. After hours of a spritely mind, you'll finally start to come down into the sleepiness that awaits you at the bottom. Enjoy this feeling and cave into the slumber - you'll hardly be able to fight it for long.
For those who struggle with mood disorders such as depression, stress, and anxiety, you've found your relief. This strain is great at smoothing out the bumps of negativity and easing your heart back into an uplifted place where bliss and positivity are possible. Additionally, if you suffer from insomnia, give this little gal a few hours or so and you'll be right as rain and off to sleep.
The flowering time on this plant is between 8 and 10 weeks for indoor growth or a late October harvest for outdoor cultivation. The plants grow somewhat tall and should be pruned regularly, and soil is the preferred method. As it is a highly stenchy strain, the indoor investment of smell proofing may be beneficial to those in a house or an apartment that requires discretion.
This is not a strain that was ever given a participation award. It earned its stripes in quality, potency, and flavor tenfold. For a deep and relaxing high that will keep you coming back for more, try this flavorful, albeit strong, Special Reserve strain by Aficionado Seed Bank and find your next favorite connoisseur strain.
