Tanana Herb Co. was founded in late 2015 and received its cultivation license in August 2016. Since then, they have been growing some of Alaska’s best flower in their 50,000-square-foot facility in Fairbanks. Currently producing a wide variety of indicas made choosing a strain difficult – but with the summer wedding season upon us – we thought sampling Bridesmaid seemed appropriate.
Considerably better than the bridesmaid gown your best friend forced you to wear, this beautiful indica will leave you feeling relaxed and content. Although the flower is on the smaller side, each bud was covered by a thick coating of frosty trichomes, making it sticky to the touch. Because of its tiny stature, packing a bowl was quick and easy.
At first, Bridesmaid gave off a pungent, earthy, vanilla scent that filled the back of our nostrils. However, as we took our first toke, the dominant flavor was undeniably anise. As anise is an acquired taste, we did find that the spicy smoke made us cough – a lot. But hey, if you’re not coughing, you’re not toking.
Like its smoke, Bridesmaid’s high was powerful. Within seconds of our first toke, we felt a gentle fog creep through our brains. The spacey head high was a welcome release after a stressful day, and it wasn’t long before we found ourselves feeling a whole lot lighter. After a few minutes, the high washed over our body and left us happily couch-locked for several hours.
