When the medical marijuana festivals come around, it is a great opportunity to visit the booths of different vendors and dispensaries and find products that I can’t find in the OC. While browsing up and down the rows of tents at the recent High Times LA Cannabis Cup, I came across a little organic grower selling $10 eighths. Never one to pass up a chance to support local and organic, I decided to pick up a couple of grams of GT Dragon.
To start, the buds were not well trimmed, and yellow leaves stuck out over much of the buds. The flowers themselves were dominated by a purple tint, sharply contrasted by the yellowed leaves and bright orange hairs. The buds were big and fluffy and easy to break up. Being a purple strain, there was a fruity smell, like dark berries. However, the aroma was noticeably sour in the end, almost rotten, like overripe fruit left to rot after falling to the ground. The taste shared some of this acrid flavor but was still sweet on the tongue.
GT Dragon offers an immediate full body high. There isn’t much in the head, but it can be a bit daydreamy. A vibrating body buzz is easy on joints and creates a lasting state of relaxation. As with most indica dominants, this strain can couch lock, but offers superior relief from both pain and insomnia.
