Initial Thoughts

I knew I was in for a special treat when the budtender at VA medical marijuana dispensary, RISE, shook the Rythm jar and nothing moved around on the inside. I had a pretty good feeling that the Animal Face bud I was about to receive was a monster. Sure enough I was met with one large honker of a nug that even weighed more than 3.5g.

Appearance

Dense nugs that break off the main stem like a puzzle. These buds are mainly shades of green and orange with a heavy layer of trichomes and pistils that are scattered everywhere.


Status

Fresh, but starting to cure.

Extremely sweet and sour smelling mint mixed with a slight candy scent. 


Flavor

It’s got a sweet nutty taste with slight notes of fuel and diesel mixed in.

Lineage

The Animal Face strain is a cross of Face Off OG and Animal Mints that runs indica dominant.


Effects

Animal Face delivered a heavy and sedating high, and acted as a switch by turning off my worries. What's interesting is that Rythm, in their thoughtful approach, pairs each strain with a curated playlist, labeling Animal Face as "Soul" - a fitting choice, as it indeed evoked a sense of comforting southern hospitality. The vibes it exuded were simply great, creating an atmosphere of relaxation and ease.

Conclusion

This Animal Face is one of the most enjoyable strains I’ve tried from a VA dispensary to date. From the pleasant aroma to the hibernating effects, I’m glad I'll have this one in my stash box, but something tells me it's not going to last too long. If you want to try it out for yourself check it out at RISE in Lynchburg or other various locations throughout the state and don’t forget to mention Toker’s Guide sent you when you do!
