Pink Goo is a rare indica dominant hybrid strain (80% indica/20% sativa) created through crossing the infamous Granddaddy Purps X Grape Ape X Northern Lights #5 strains. Named for Jesse Pinkman of Breaking Bad fame, this bud packs a punch of effects that will have you kicking back and stress-free in no time at all. The high starts with a light lifted effect that fills your mind with a touch of cerebral energy and euphoria. As your mind lifts into this active and focused state, your body will begin to settle into pure relaxation. You’ll be physically calm and totally at ease without too much couch lock or sedation. With these effects and its high 18-19% THC level and 1% CBD level, Pink Goo is often chosen to treat those suffering from conditions such as chronic fatigue, depression, chronic pain, insomnia and chronic stress. This bud has a classic sweet fruity berry flavor with a touch of spicy grapes and herbs upon exhale. The aroma is very herbal and spicy with a berry coffee overtone that is slightly earthy at times. Pink Goo buds have super sticky grape-shaped forest green nugs with brownish-orange hairs, dark olive leaves and a coating of frosty tiny white crystal trichomes.
Introduced in 2003 by Ken Estes, Granddaddy Purple (or GDP) is a famous indica cross of Purple Urkle and Big Bud. This California staple inherits a complex grape and berry aroma from its Purple Urkle parent, while Big Bud passes on its oversized, compact bud structure. GDP flowers bloom in shades of deep purple, a contrasting backdrop for its snow-like dusting of white crystal resin.
Its potent effects are clearly detectable in both mind and body, delivering a fusion of cerebral euphoria and physical relaxation. While your thoughts may float in a dreamy buzz, your body is more likely to find itself fixed in one spot for the duration of GDP’s effects. Granddaddy Purple is typically pulled off the shelf for consumers looking to combat pain, stress, insomnia, appetite loss, and muscle spasms. GDP blesses growers with massive yields which are ready for harvest following a 60 day flowering time indoors.
Grape Ape is a tasty, memorable strain with strong indica roots. Its distinctive look and complex fruity flavor makes it an easy favorite — to say nothing of its incredibly potent body high. Grape Ape is the product of strains as different as Mendocino Purps, an award-winning Northern California crossbreed, the influential staple strain Skunk, and a legendary Afghani landrace. The combination of these nuances has yielded a bold and visually striking variety.
There are different varieties of Grape Ape, with seeds available from Washington State-based Apothecary Genetics and Barney’s Farm, the seed bank responsible for creating other taste-focused strains like LSD and Pineapple Chunk. Testing lab Analytical 360 has tested samples of Grape Ape at between 15% and 25% THC composition.
Northern Lights #5
Northern Lights #5 is not only an award winning strain, but it has been well received and has managed to become immensely popular amongst the masses. It is an indica dominant strain with 95:5 indica/sativa ratio. Since it has 26% THC content, it manages to slam the body into a numbing but equally wonderful lazy mode. Northern Lights #5 looks ordinary and is medium green in color with orange hairs surrounding it. It smells sweet, piney and tangy. It tastes just the same as it smells, but first time smokers are advised to stay clear of it. It is known to be a one hit wonder and the high is overwhelming. It is enough to knock you out for hours. However, you will feel happy and will realize a sense of well-being. For experienced users, it can even instill a sense of creativity all the while increasing focus and concentration. It is true that the strain does have its drawbacks. Negative culprits like paranoia, anxiety and dizziness do exist if the strain is smoked in high doses. But there is no denying the fact that it is a pure sedative strain. With the right quantities a patient can overcome the effects of anxiety and stress. But there are those who prefer it to relieve chains of chronic pain at the same time. Additionally, it is also perfect for individuals suffering from anorexia and eating disorders.
