Garlicane: Bloom County

Garlicane

It’s safe to say I was very excited to finally review this strain grown by Bloom County and sold by Frosted Leaf. GMO and Do-Si-Dos have both had a massive impact on my smoking habits due to their lovely uniqueness, specifically GMO. Purple Punch is part of the lineage here as well and while I don’t like it very much on it’s own it generally adds a ton of flavor to crosses, but did those terpenes transfer? Let’s take a deep dive on this unique cut of Garlicane from Bloom County.

    Lineage – GMO x Slurricane

Note: Slurricane is Do-Si-Dos x Purple Punch

  • Consumption Method – Flower vaporizer, Bong
  • Visuals – From pretty much every single phenotype I’ve seen of Garlicane it looks beautiful. This cut sold by Frosted Leaf is no different, offering a smattering of trichomes that look like sugar that stands tall over a bed of olive and bright minty greens. I’m very happy to report that trichome agitation is actually very mild with this strain, this genetic appears to manicure very tightly in general. The beautiful purple leaves that surround calyxes are almost blue in hue they are so bright.

    Garlicane is very similar in visuals to Slurricane, carrying what appears to be a slightly stretchier bud structure which is spear-shaped and still quite dense. One of my favorite visual qualities of cannabis is apparent here and that is foxtailing, while it can go bad on occasion, when it goes right it makes many strains an absolute visual treat, on full display here.

    SCORE – 89

    Aroma – It seems that anything crossed with GMO typically carries a similar profile to it meaning that the garlic is here in full force! Blending along with this tone are distinct notes of gym socks, onions, and a black pepper like spice. There is a distinct and lovely overtone of a bright mint that is unmistakable. This strain hit my nose like any of my favorites do, loud and proud of it’s lineage. This flower smells amazing and incredibly unique, just like GMO.

    SCORE – 88

    Flavor – While the aroma of this strain is incredibly complex, I can’t say as much for the flavor although it still has a very pleasant taste. You are first hit with garlic and onions on the inhale with a very spicy exhale that lingers on the tastebuds for a long while. There were mild hints of sweetness on both the inhale and exhale via flower vaporizer that was very welcome and unnoticed during combustion via hempwick. Again just like the GMO in the heritage this flavor is not for everyone, but so many of us love it.

    SCORE – 84

    Effects – Garlicane has a very uplifting and head focused indica smack, and boy does she get you good. Waves of euphoria crash all around you as you try to maintain focus after a big hit. Just like both parents, this cut is a heavy hitter and super long-lasting. I can easily say the peak of this high felt like it was well over two hours, which is quite long and inviting. I’d also like to say that not too many strains offer this either.

    Just as you’re settling in to this mind melting euphoric daze, this cut of Garlicane does slink down your body, releasing built up tension along the way while relieving minor aches. At the right dose, this strain can easily induce couchlock. There is a nice sedative effect with this cannabis as well that will lead to slumber if you would like. I had a great time playing board games with some friends after enjoying this strain so if you are attuned to potent indica highs then you should be fine on that end, sit back and put on a good film or even an audio book. Laughter came when I was dancing in my chair to some awful pop tune and my friends noticed, this strain is very uplifting and a very smooth smoke. I would recommend this lady for end of day use only.

    SCORE – 85

  • Possible Medical Uses – Chronic pain, muscle spasms and tension, stress, mood disorders, and insomnia.
  • Negatives (no effect on score) – Heavy dry mouth was very apparent. Paranoia or anxiety and discomfort is surely possible with this potent cut if you don’t mind your intake.

Final Thoughts and Overall Score

I really enjoyed this cut of Garlicane from Bloom County for multiple reasons. The visual appeal of this strain is very nice and shows that the growers at Bloom County care about the product they release and Frosted Leaf cares about the quality they sell. Right now, almost any solid strain that is crossed with GMO is absolute top notch in terpene profiles and effects. It seems like you can’t go wrong when you’re cookin’ with garlic and chem. I’ve seen multiple cuts of this strain around the Denver area and they all share the same beautiful looks, I can’t wait to try some of this flower from another grow. Well done Bloom.

I give their cut of Garlicane a final score of: 87 out of 100

Garlicane by Fifty Fold

Garlicane by Fifty Fold

Welcome back to toasted n’ posted where the dankest strains are burnt at the stake! Today’s monstrous marvel is Garlicane from Fifty Fold. This peculiar cross is the child of GMO and Slurricane, the Dosido cross we analyzed the other week. What do we get when we mash some garlic flavor into plush kushy qualities? We shall soon find out. This production contains 23.3% THCA and is labeled as an indica. My thirst for terpenes is growing; I ‘vant’ to smoke your bud!

Support my work, every bit helps!

With great caution I enter the tomb of the sleeping beast. A rolling berry falls from the ceiling and tumbles under a prickled carpet of sour pepper. A rich, savory, jerky musk lingers in the heavy air of the catacombs. Every step deeper into the chasm renews the spicy acute foulness. The garlic nymph is subtle, but present. A chunky pseudo-onion musk trudges through a bog of bubbling syrup. A light gas waves across a medley of sweet chive and humid wood.

I crack into the biggest clove in hopes of uncovering hidden secrets. The individual parents brandish their individual influences. Tart berry juices akin to Slurricane gush from the freshly naked mantle. Gentle spurts of gas are quickly perverted by the honed bitter of GMO. Free from the fog of war, is a grape-blueberry slurry. Wafting over the sunken muck of molasses are brittle clouds of dry herb and mellow onion. The garlic interventions are brief, but snap my senses to attention. Readying my palette for another dive into the funky depths of Garlicane.

Much like the exterior of literal garlic, a milky egg hue washes over every petal of these buds. Junctures of coagulated white color build into mountains on the lips and ridges of Garlicane. Like wisps of smoke, feathery stigmas squirm from the verdant crust. The hairs glow with a ghostly aura of frailty, they stand in defeated contrast to the secondary set rich with color. A second breed of stigmas are born in contradiction of the snowy reign. Weathered tan hairs, of a bulkier variety, worm their plump forms into matted cocoons of warm brush.

The buds are built like a freeze-frame explosion. Stacked plumes of mushroom cloud foliage stagger haphazardly to form massive pillars. The foaming pistachio guise is disrupted by the bouquet of lumped greens. Weathered olive shifts into pools of disenchanted fern as the colors are washed into the haze of ambiguous white above. With such a fragile appearance, I was surprised by the resilience demonstrated by the bud structure. Even the most isolated of its limbs prove unflinching, this strain is surely indica-dominant.

Leaf to flame, my tongue is smothered by raw, grassy, pepper. The note is embalmed in a peppery bitter remarkably similar to garlic. I relish in the wake of each charred clove as they dissolve into creamy ambiguity. A dry rub of smooth grape tumbles down the funky path of provocative musk. The steamy herb entertains a tender mint that softens the foul cinders. I stumble into a brittle patch of skunky vegetation, bathed in its pungency. The garlic specter revisits intermittently in vengeful swoops, inciting the rancid richness.

The high begins in the shape of a fleeting mental rise. I feel jittery bursts in my perception separated by long vacant stares. The tug-of-war eventually subsides into a walking-sleep. A liquid mellow sloshes around in my skull, my brain feels heavy and lopsided. As if I’d taken too much cold medication, my face feels to be drifting exponentially further from my face.

A numbing chill fills the increasing void between. The icy aether expands to create an invisible cushion across the rest of my body. I feel like I’ve been planted into an invisible suit of onesie pajamas. My natural body heat is amplified, gradually lulling my mind into hibernation. The sensation seems to last for an eternity and fields no ‘ceiling’. Feel free to carelessly rush towards blissful incapacitation with Garlicane in your hands!

Dracula, beware! This Garlicane means business. I was quite satisfied in my quest for garlic flavor within this production. The note is open to some interpretation, but I found the sentiment to be quite present. The profile is simple, but bold and entertaining. I would suggest this strain to those looking for a woody, peppery smoke with a light sweetness. The introduction of GMO drew the characteristics of this flower far from the typical realm of Slurricane. I found this strain to be a true hybrid of its parents. As always, thanks for reading.
