It may not be the first time I’ve taken some time to tell you, but it’s worth saying again. There’s a reason classics are classics. As more and more trendy “strains of the month” come and go, I find myself seeking out the old school skunk, haze, and landrace genetics that our current lineups hail from. When I got the chance to sample the Innocent’s Aurora Chem Haze Sugar by In Grown Farms, I was hoping it would satisfy my desire for some of those old style flavors and effects.
Aurora Chem Haze is a hybrid strain created by Phillip Hague in-house at In Grown Farms. It hails from a cross of Northern Lights with a (Chemdawg D x Northern Lights #5) plant. This batch of sugar tested at 91.321% THCa and 95.822% total cannabinoids. The primary terpenes included beta-myrcene, limonene, alpha-pinene, beta-caryophyllene, and alpha-humulene.
This half-gram of sugar came as a mound of medium sized, sunflower yellow grains somewhere between the size of table sugar and sea salt. The sugar did not come in a liquid sauce but the grains had a stickiness that helped keep them on my dabber. This concentrate also had a tendency to break down and become a singular crumbly dose when pressed together, making for simple dabbing.
The aroma in the jar was bold, leading with fresh pinesap, diesel, and orange peel. I also detected fresh tropical notes of papaya and mango. When vaporized at low temperatures, the fresh pine and diesel became the stars of the show with light hints of funkiness provided by the Chemdawg genetics. Overall, the flavor was light and playful while still providing enough depth to be intriguing.
Aurora Chem Haze falls squarely in the hybrid category both genetically and in effects.
The body hit was slow to come on but strongly euphoric once it set in, sending tingles throughout my body in waves.
The cerebral effects were pure haze and inspired me creatively. I found that writing work came easier, compounding the motivational effects from the haze’s sativa edge.
Overall, the creative edge and tropical hints made this a winner for me. I’m excited to see more cultivators explore the world of classic genetics like Ingrown has done here.
