HiFi by Garcia Hand Picked
This month’s featured flower is particularly exciting because we are welcoming a new Cannabis brand to our humble state: the illustrious Garcia Hand Picked line, grown by Holistic Industries. We couldn’t help ourselves when it came to their HiFi – a cultivar boasting over 2% terps and an impressive 26% THCa. A cross between WiFi OG #43 and High Octane #9, two notoriously potent cultivars, consumers can expect a fuel soaked experience with a heavy hit.
The HiFi doesn’t require too much explanation as its profile, effects and flavor all seem to be pretty straight forward. In short, I will describe this flower simply as gas – gassy aroma, gassy flavor, high potency petrol. The diesel notes are underscored by earthy and floral tones that are well preserved in their beautifully decorated glass jars. With its dominant terpene profile consisting of myrcene, limonene, linalool and caryophyllene, this HiFi brings your standard indica hybrid effect that is at once calming and sedating, while not being a couch locker. An absolutely excellent toke for the chronically ill, or for those of us that prefer our highs a little on the heavier side.
While I am undoubtedly curious to see what continues to come out of Garcia Hand Picked as they make their home in Maryland, I am completely enamored with this HiFi cultivar. The gassiness rounds out into an earthy and florally flavor that is very complementary. Notes of moss, lavender and hibiscus abound with each inhale, but it’s pure petrol on the exhale.
The nugs contain every shade of green there is and are interwoven with vivid orange calyxes and a small smattering of purple dollops. Additionally, they get bonus points for the extra large nugs. The eighth I got, as well as the ones I observed around me, were all one or two nug jars – meaning that their flower was packing on some weight before harvest! This is a very good indication for new genetics being put into a new system, and leads me to believe that Garcia Hand Picked will be churning out lots of fire in the coming months.
