Sol Shine Cannabis Cultivar (Strain) Review
I’ve finally got my hands on an eighth to check out thanks to Budist. Some notes on the farm.
Sol Shine won a Golden Bear award at the California State Fair Cannabis Awards for its high Terpinolene content. THC was on deck to capture the moment.
Sol Spirit Farms has also won awards at The Emerald Cup and as more people get their hands on this flower, the more awards will stack.
Sol Spirit Retreats is open to anyone looking to experience Sol Spirit Farms up there in the heart of the Emerald Triangle.
To the mylar crowd, these nugs might not look that impressive at first. For anybody that doubts non purple weed, i suggest taking a tiny bit of the nug off from the bottom so you can look inside and get a better smell. “Earth conscious,” sungrown flower just hits different in all the senses – starting with sight.
The nose is oh so wonderful, and I’d wear it as cologne every day (by smoking a joint in the morning) if I could. It’s bright, fizzy and goes right up to the penthouse suite of your nostrils with its paint thinner and well beyond citrus rind notes. The terpinolene really leads, and it’s no wonder considering how much of it is there is in there.
In the flower mill, it broke up perfectly which highlights the perfect post processing that happens at Sol Spirit Farms. Rolled up in a joint, the dry hit is just straight aromatherapy meets a calorie-less appetizer.
All that is window dressing compared to the high – which opens up the world like pulling up the blinds or openingcleaner the curtains at sunrise. There’s physical energy, but also relaxation and zen and most of all a creative focus that really is the cherry on top. I felt my worries melt away, I added a pep or two into my step, and then started thinking about who I wanted to share this rare find with. It’s all gone now, but trust it was shared with the right people.
Hat’s off to Walter and Judi. Sol Spirit hits! I’ve also tried their Element, which also hits.
