Sometimes the crowd grows too loud to ignore. Over the past month, I’ve had multiple recommendations to try the newest batch of Verano flower. It’s no secret that the company has had issues since the beginning of legalization, so I was surprised to hear some of my trusted friends tell me it was worth trying again. That’s what led me to my latest pickup from Consume Marion, Guru 10 from Verano.
Guru 10 is phenotype of Guru an indica leaning cross of Forbidden Fruit and Petrol OG. This batch of flower tested at 24.117% THCa, 0.172% THC, and 24.664% total cannabinoids.
This eighth came as three large, picturesque colas alongside a few pinches pushing the weight well above the marked 3.5 grams. Deep purple flashes appeared among tight orange hairs and a deep forest green color. These flowers were dense and broke down with a distinct pleasing stickiness.
There was a lot of variety to the flavor and aroma, and it took some exploration to identify everything going on. The aroma from the jar opened candy sweet, reminiscent of Runtz tinged with orange zest, grape, berry and a hint of gas on the finish.
The Forbidden Fruit genetics were the clear star of the scent. The Petrol OG side of the family tree appeared when smoked with the gas and a surprising herbaceous tone took over.
The effect profile started in my head, relieving my anxiety and promoting a talkative and social mood. The effects built slowly, and the silly, talkative headspace gave way to an intense body tingle, something I rarely find in most flower. My body and arms felt as if they were vibrating ever so slightly and my head gave off classic headband style tightness at the crown.
Guru felt more to me like a middle ground hybrid than an indica. The open and social headspace made this a great strain to unwind with in the evening without weighing me down so much that the only thing I achieved at night was smoking.
