I told myself I was going to quit when Prop 64 passed but milestones are imperative and why would I deny the suggestion of a grower (IG: @bigggerik) whose work I’d been smoking since I decided to get serious with the whole Smoke Weed Everyday – Project 365 (inspired from the Great Discontent).
The truth was, I never knew how to rate weed until I started this project and couldn’t find the words to describe what I was tasting. So, I wanted to start with Turtle Pie – marking this as the apex of my version of strain hunting around the Bay Area.
I don’t want to say odorless but Turtle Pie ghosts on you. You catch the faintest, caramel scent of oolong tea minus the pungent after odor left on the back of your nose. It’s almost peppery in its notes, really clean, and bold.
TASTE / FEEL
Dry – it tastes herbal with a residue of something naturally sweet and mild. It’s almost woody like milk tea where the mildness of the bud melds with a bitter afterthought.
Smoked – the woodiness comes through but leaves a milky residue – almost like creamy milk candy. It’s not bitter and is not complemented with a dense film of resin behind the throat.
Turtle Pie’s buds are dense and sticky which gives the smoker a hard time grinding it if they have weak wrists like me. A relatively small nug can make almost two 1 1/4th sized cone joints – filter included.
Turtle Pie is a very clean smoke – white ashes, no headaches, no tunnel vision and doesn’t result in the munchies.
The high creeps up and leads the smoker to feel quite euphoric, relaxed, and calm as it peaks. One odd attribute from this strain is that it lasts for hours and it makes the user forget that they’re high.
All around Turtle Pie is a real OG since it leads the user to a happier mood with a mix of a full body high that subtly relaxes the body and removes all forms of anxiety and depression.
