We may have missed Pi Day, but that couldn’t stop us from indulging in the decadent Lemon Meringue Pie (LMP) bud from Pakalolo Supply Co. Although we definitely missed the buttery, sugary goodness of dessert pie, the less fattening weed version was a welcomed change of pace. Of course, it didn’t stop us from DoorDashing – but hey, at least we tried to resist.
Nicknamed Super Lemon Haze’s stonier sister, LMP is a slow-hitting sativa that builds nicely with each toke. Made from a cross of Lemon Skunk and Cookies and Cream, this bud has fragrant notes of diesel and citrus that are only intensified when you crack it open. In fact, although we could pick up hints of lemon when we took a whiff of the jar, when we put it in our grinder our whole house filled with the scent of zesty citrus.
A relatively large bud that’s packed with orange pistils, this LMP is less frosty than we were expecting given the intensity of the high we experienced. However, less frost meant that we weren’t left with sticky fingers after packing a bowl and that’s always a plus – especially when your dog is a weed hound.
When sampling LMP we used both a pipe and a bong, and had a slightly different experience with both. Toking with our pipe, the smoke took on a distinctly diesel flavor and had us coughing for a good minute or two. Consuming from our bong seemed to temper the harshness of the smoke and brought out more of the limonene terps, making for a more pleasant experience. If you’re newer to Cannabis, we’d highly recommend trying LMP with a good-sized bong first.
Admittedly, it took us a few hits to feel the effects of LMP … but once they showed up, they really took hold! Initially, the high started as a tingling headband before making its way to the back of our head and down our spine. Once we reached a nice body high, the happy, talkative aspects of LMP began to bubble to the surface. Before we knew it, we had blown through a whole season of Netflix’s Sex/Love and were debating the benefits of journaling. Our ultimate consensus: Journaling is like trying this bud – you should definitely do it.
