Lemon Burst from via Medcare Farms on 5/23/2020 (shout out to Garrin for making it happen!). THC tested out to 21.51% THC. This was gifted to me but is currently on the menu at Medcare for $47.46. They also have a membership program which mades that even cheaper so it’s definitely worth looking into. I feel like I can never get my hands on enough sativa so I was absolutely stoked to see this Lemon Burst in my sample pack from Medcare Farms. These semi-dense buds are a mix of avocado green and chartreuse with occasional daubs of aubergine, brownish red pistils, and a thick layer of golden yellow triches fighting for any available space there may be left on the already overrun surface.
The nose out of the jar is very jack-like as it’s a sweet yet peppery floral with a bit of citrus on the backend. The smell really reminds me of this jar of potpourri my grandma used to keep in the bathroom at her house but maybe that was just where she kept all her Jack Herer and I was too young to know better. Busting open a bud, that sweet floral quality still dominates, but the citrus aspect gets a bit louder. When grinding it down by hand a grimey trich film gets left on the tips of your fingers as well as a herbaceous medicinal smell, however, the grinds themselves have a delicious sweet lemon scent coupled with a deep rich floral. The dry pull on the jay has a very pleasant sweet citrus and a peppery floral taste that matches up with the scent of the grinds perfectly. The inhale is smooth and is a very faint sweet floral on the joint where the bong is essentially the same but has a slight citrus lilt. The exhale on the joint is a very muted peppery floral with a touch of sweet lemon where the bong is more of a sweet musty floral with a hint of cream. Cross checking the flavor on my MV1 from Ghost Vapes at 170c I get a strong floral with a touch of pine and what I’d describe as a skunky beer aftertaste where at 185c it remains floral but it brightens up with a little sweetness and has less of a skunky beer aftertaste but it’s still present. The headchange comes on quick and has a nice slightly energetic slap that feels motivational without being overly jittery or paranoid. You can stay focused and on task with relative ease, however, there’s this slightly spacey aspect that can cause you to drift off if you allow it. I found myself leaning on this batch in the mornings frequently as it pairs well with a cup of coffee and keeps you in positive spirits as you whip through your to-do to list. All and all, I really liked this Lemon Burst and I definitely could see myself picking it up again for the $40 range it goes for at Medcare’s home shop, if you’re a fan of Jack and can find it at a ticket you’re comfortable with I think you’ll like it too.
