This Apple Tartz from DC recreational storefront Elevated Lounge has an intense flavor and aroma with effects that are just as powerful. As the name implies, its fragrance and flavor are dominated by notes of apple and caramel. Many users have even reported tasting hints of cookie dough and apple flavored breakfast cereals as well. Of course, this should come as no surprise given that the strain gets nearly 50% of its lineage from the now world-famous Cookies family.
An indica-dominant hybrid cross of Apple Fritter - also intensely aromatic - and the always delicious Runtz, this strain was originally bred by Clearwater Genetics and runs something like 60/40 on the indica/sativa spectrum.
Packed with terpenes, Apple Tartz has been found to contain B-Caryophyllene, Farnesene, Linalool, Limonene, and A-Humulene during laboratory testing according to my online research. It's the blending of these terpenes that create the complex flavors your mouth discovers when toking or vaping. In this case, the fruitiness of Limonene is melding with the cinnamon-like notes from the B-Caryophyllene to create the fruity, spicy apple-pie-like flavor. Additionally, Farnesene is commonly known for being present in green apples and expresses as citrus and woody, which I'm sure contributes to the complexity.
The high felt from this great herb was both euphoric and up-lifting. I had two sessions across the day and was able to be in a state of bliss while knocking out some needed household tasks. I must say, I had quite the blast blaring reggae tunes while washing my wife’s car. Yet, I also had a great time reading quietly on my patio too. Ultimately, I'd call this a potent, extremely pungent, and highly versatile batch that I'm happy to roll up almost any time of day.
