Cherry Lime Rickey is a sturdy strain with heavy, solid buds. This sample is devoid of any extraneous leaves that have a nasty habit of filling up orders with fluff rather than substance. Due to the robust development of trichomes these gems look like they have been dusted with confectioner’s sugar, something you will surely notice when handling. Overall CLR is a cosmetically attractive strain with impressive amounts of red hairs coupled with a healthy glisten from its globule growth (kief).
The olfactory makeup of Cherry Lime Rickey is unmistakably pastoral. The first impression is one of fresh growth on the farm, evoking images of green life under the sun. When you break CLR open there is an added dimension of skunk and ammonia that speaks to its potent effects. Although CLR does not share many scented similarities with its namesake, you will nonetheless find an undercurrent of citrus (limonene) that makes its presence known, if only intermittently.
I smoked this sample of Cherry Lime Rickey in a small glass chillum pipe. It burned evenly throughout, providing a well-rounded and easy-to-pull hit. Although not always the case, with CLR the flavor profile matches its odor to a surprising degree. I would offer that the skunky and ammonia flavor comes through a bit stronger during the initial inhale, and then remains in the aftertaste. The combination of everything is a pleasant rich draw, and it burned down to white ash which is a good tell for proper flushing and curing.
Take note of its strong head change in the first five minutes, Cherry Lime Rickey packs a mean punch up front. Despite that shock bit at the beginning however, CLR transitions into a surprisingly clear-headed state where 15 minutes after consumption I was able to enjoy a genuine state of relaxation coupled with reasonable lucidity. The largest noticeable effect was of that to the body. A release of tension is palpable, with an emphasis on easing muscle tightness. For a solid hour after smoking there was a continued loose feeling that I found quite comfortable. The effects taper off largely around the hour to hour and a half mark.
The claims by Oasis Cannabis Superstore that Cherry Lime Rickey is an ideal strain to relieve symptoms of muscle spasms, anxiety, PMS and pain seem correct. It would also likely be a strain beneficial in the treatment of PTSD.
