Welcome to SUPER BOWL week! Great time to come together with friends and have a sunday funday and with cannabis becoming more popular the stoners can come out. I know i’m going to bring PBR THC seltzers, emerald PB Cups, and of course rolling a fat blunt for the halftime show. So what better strain to try out this week than The Franchise from Green Dragon!
This is my first time trying Green Dragon so I had no idea what to expect. The packaging definitely caught my eye being a football fan. The nugs were also nice and dense, not too dry either.The leaves were a light green with a few purple leaves and short orange pistols. It didn’t have too much of a smell or nose to it. Was kind of earthy and bland. The taste unfortunately was the same with nothing really catching my attention. However the effect is great!
Total THC: 34.8%
Total Cannabinoids: 41.1%
Flavor: Understated yet earthy taste.
Effects: Good after a heavy workout, watching a movie before bed
This definitely a perfect example of INDICA meaning in da couch! This was a relaxing and very spacious high. Making it very hard to focus but excellent for pain relief. I think The Franchise is a confusing name for the effects. I was expecting for it to be a nice hybrid to have a day of just watching football and great for the super bowl. This is more for the athletes after the super bowl than for someone watching it.
Overall I think this is a good strain and would love to try more strains from Green Dragon. The taste and nose could be improved but the high is great. I recommend The Franchise after a heavy workout, watching a movie before bed, or after a surgery or injury! I rate it a 3.9 flames out of 5!
