This Apple Fritter Strain from DC recreational delivery service Buddha Buddy (and also available at their storefront, The Treehouse) is as flavorful and hard hitting as I've ever seen this strain be. The buds have bag appeal for days - or in this case, "jar appeal" since Buddha Buddy presents all their varietals in a cylindrical glass container.
Covered with trichomes and an unreal amount of orange pistils, these nuggets of joy really gleam in the sunlight. They also have pigments of purple sprinkled throughout and there's a distinct smell of sour fruit and cake, perhaps fruit cake? Packed with terpenes the grinder makes this already complex and funky aroma even more “loud” when breaking it up.
Apple Fritter has been lab tested as high as 32% according to some reports and in 2016 it was named on the list of “World’s Strongest Strains” by High Times. Considered by many to be a perfect 50/50 hybrid it's a cross of Animal Cookies and Sour Apple. Animal Cookies is a potent indica consisting of Fire OG and GSC, while Sour Apple comes from sativa-heavy hybrids Cinderella 99 and Sour Diesel. The end result is a chronically potent variety which was hand selected to bring the best of both worlds.
This herb does not come with any racing effects for me personally, nor does it have me locked down to the couch. A joint of it helped me get my morning chores done around the garden, and later, a few bong hits fueled the creativity of this very document.
In flavor, the earthy citrus exhale of this flower was akin to sipping apple cider on a crisp autumn day. With a terpene profile that includes phellandrene, limonene, caryophyllene, pinene, myrcene, ocimene, humulene, linalool, and terpinolene, it’s no wonder this cannabis strain receives such high marks from so many different consumers and influencers alike.
