This Sativa bud was created by crossing the infamous LSD OG X Green Crack strains. If you are seeking a rush of and energizing high, that will get you up and going in the morning before you can say, “What happened?” Skookum Charlie is your top choice.
Appearance & Aroma
The Skookum Charlie strain sets itself apart with conical, large flowers. These long cones have a fluffy bud structure that is usual for Sativa varieties. The loose, ragged flowers are composed of leaves that easily tear away from their central stems. The colours of the buds are a deep shade of forest green. Some phenotypes of the strain also possess patches of softened purple; these stunning colours arose when pigments called anthocyanins are agitated by cooler weather during vegetation in a process similar to the altering of foliage in fall due to depleted chlorophyll levels. These already-colourful buds are covered on their outer and inner surfaces in cloudy crystal trichomes, giving them a silvery finish.
The cured flowers of Charlie boast a bright orange and lemon aroma that is faintly reminiscent of citrus-scented cleaning products. Upon close inspection reveals a vegetal, grassy character. Meanwhile, breaking apart these loose buds yields some incense-like notes that betray the strain’s Kushy roots. When combusted, Skookum Charlie burns with a smooth, palatable smoke tasting like sweet overripe fruit with a slightly dank, piney hint.
Effects & Benefits
Skookum Charlie effects arise quickly, bringing about a charge of uplifting energy. Users may find themselves amid strong cerebral thinking; this mindset can help find analytical resolutions to problems and imaginative brainstorming. The Sativa can also be uniquely social and can assist in enhancing conversation. In the proper setting, these early phases of the high may produce a heightened sense of euphoria. After about an hour, users are hit by an intense body high. The eyelids might start to droop while the cor and limbs begin to feel heavy, leading many to find refuge in the nearest comfortable spot. As users become couch-locked, their minds might wander and enter a foggy, cloudy state. Therefore, don’t plan on getting anything done a few hours after consuming a large amount. Due to these effects, Charlie is most suited for use in the late afternoon or evening.
