You don’t have to go to a far-away galaxy to experience the impact of something akin to an intergalactic battle cruiser. Thanks to Scorpion Grass’ expert cultivators and their out-of-this-world offering, Deathstar Cherry Pie Rozay, you can orbit without leaving the couch.
With a name like that, we expected a complex flower that would live up to its posh moniker. We were not disappointed. The beautifully irregular-shaped buds we sampled were light in color and accented with enough shine from the trichomes that we didn’t doubt the nearly 27% THC content listed on the label. That, coupled with the contrast from the abundant orange pistils, made it very appealing to the eye.
The bud was well cured and easy to break apart into bowl-sized chunks without a lot of crumbling, while the color and consistency stayed true down to the modest stem. Breaking apart the buds sent our noses on an enjoyable ride through an aromatic bouquet featuring hints of rose, citrus and diesel. This flower is basically screaming “SMOKE ME!”
With our mouths still watering from the smell, we took our first hit. The taste upon inhale had a pleasantly distinct floral overtone that continued through the exhale. The aftertaste left a mash-up of floral and tongue-coating diesel hints that made us want to wait to take another hit while we enjoyed the lingering flavors.
The initial hits produced an incredible euphoria that had us wanting to reinvent the wheel, chart unknown galaxies and ponder the impossible. The euphoria lasted anywhere from 20-30 minutes and settled into a continuous happy vibe for another hour or so, before rounding out the high with a feeling of intense relaxation that proved its indica heritage. It was the kind of relaxation that made us want to throw on a Steely Dan album and get lost in the music until sleep kicked in.
In short, Deathstar Cherry Pie Rozay is a universally enjoyable experience from start to finish … leaving you wanting, but not needing, to smoke another bowl when you flip the vinyl.
