After popping in to visit One Love, I discovered it was now Santa Ana P.A.. New name, same set up. Though, the shelves seemed less full of the choices I’d come to expect. After viewing the menu boards, I settled on a blended hybrid. It was the name, Sour Candy Apple, that appealed to me. It sounded to me like a special Starburst flavor. And my mouth was watering before I even made it out of the dispensary.
There have been some beautiful late harvest buds around the OC lately, busty and plump, with coatings of amber trichromes. Sour Candy Apple has dark leaves and light emerald flowers, flush with pale hairs. There is a fruit scent similar to an apple or pear. It’s a bit piney also, but barely so. The buds I got were really fresh, making them hard to break up. Once they dried after a moment or two on a dish, they were much more workable. Smoking it gives a really harsh hit, but the exhale is all fresh apple and slightly sour. It isn’t overwhelming like a sour patch kid, though. More subtle. More bearable.
Sour Apple is a mix of a heavy Kush indica and Sour Diesel. I’m not sure where the “Candy” in the name comes from, but the obvious choice would be a work in of Candy Kush. The high left me with a nice warm tingle in body, like a warm spiced wine enjoyed in front of a fire. It was heavy in the eyes and comfortingly sleepy, a kind of drunk feeling. I was still able to function on lower doses, and it was mellow and smooth. I found it to be a great wake and bake strain on a weekend, when you want the dreaminess of morning to continue. However, it is a bit too distracting for a work day. The more I smoked, the more couch-locked I got. When used late enough, it put me down swiftly to sleep. This hybrid seems to swing far to the indica side, making it perfect for all kinds of pain relief and insomnia.
