The Science: Slymer enjoys an elevated potency profile with its two main cannabinoids tipping the scales at approximately 25% THC and roughly 0.08% CBD. High in Terpinolene, Caryophyllene, Beta Pinene, and Limonene, Slymer’s overall flavor profile was inherited from its parental trilogy.
Appearance: Dusted with a resinous coating of sweet terpenes and powerful cannabinoids, Slymer was named one of the 12 best marijuana strains in America for March 2016 by SFGate. A hybridized beauty to behold, Slymer’s buds are perfectly manicured and professionally cured. Comprised of swollen calyxes and wildly intertwining pistils, simply viewing these buds instills a sense of mental relaxation.
Consistency: As is typically true with well-grown cannabis, Slymer enjoys incredible density. Cultivated to optimal maturation and processed to perfection, using your fingers to snap off a nug for a bong rip would be considered acceptable. But for those lucky individuals rolling a joint or blunt this 4.20, utilizing anything less than a grinder or scissors would be considered a smoke circle faux pas.
Scent: A treat for the olfactory system, Slymer has a citrus forward nose. Reeking of lemon and lime with a spicy citrus undertone, this strain’s overall aroma, as well as its flavor, is dictated by its collective terpene profile: Terpinolene – orange blossoms, lime, citronella; Caryophyllene – spicy, black pepper, eucalyptus; Beta Pinene – earthy; Limonene – grapefruit, orange, lemon.
Taste: As advertised by her terpenes’ citrusy profile, Slymer leans hard toward the lemon/lime side of the flavor spectrum. Pairing nicely with a Chardonnay and some fresh seafood, this strain also works well as an after dinner smoke. Great for igniting esoteric conversation and personal contemplation, Slymer’s overall zestiness adds to the enjoyment of an evening with good food and company.
Effect: One hit, two hits, three hits…soar. An energetic and creative ride, Slymer’s high can last for hours. Instilling a sense of enthusiastic curiosity, the conversations, ideas, and creative visions begin to flow.
Strain Background: Considered a cultivator of the “World’s Most Powerful Pot,” RB26 energized the standard Trainwreck x Jack The Ripper x Trinity mix. Detail oriented and data-driven, RB26’s cultivation and nutrient management routine elevated the standard Chernobyl flower, taking the potency up a few evolutionary notches.
Medical Uses: An effectual strain for stimulating appetites, Slymer also works wonders as a cure for mental exhaustion. And for those seeking a slightly more holistic approach to dealing with their daily bouts of depression and stress, Slymer’s on point.
