Initial Thoughts

Baklava, brought to you by Seed and Strain, is almost as fun to say as it is to burn. Just like the pastry this cultivar is a treat for after dinner and is guaranteed to lock you into the couch in even moderate amounts. I’ve been looking around for a good pain management option and Baklava is rumored to help numb it away. This particular batch is from gLeaf in Short Pump Virginia, but have seen it on other menus throughout the Commonwealth as well.



Bright green with plentiful trichomes and burn orange hairs.


Coniferous and dense, but light and crisp.





Earthiness accompanied by hints of diesel fuel. There’s a sharpness to the smell that cuts right into your nose.


A tart and creamy smoke flavor. Not the nutty sweet flavor that the pastry has, but nonetheless delicious in its own way.


Baklava is an indica dominant cross of Kosher Kush and Gelato 41 that runs 60/40.


The first thing that took over my body was a calming warmth, which was to my benefit since it was just above freezing outside. As I continued to take some tokes, my mind began to wander to all the good places. I began to space out gazing at the moon and constellations mindlessly taking draw after draw. The last hits left me lifted and removed any negative thoughts for the rest of the night. My mouth did dry up a bit, but a few trips to the pantry fixed that for me. After about an hour, I was able to settle into bed and was able to fall asleep comfortably.


This strain is perfect for the beginner smoker looking to avoid bouts of paranoia, or the experienced user who wants to use the benefits from some true medicine. I’ll be sure to pick up some more Baklava as Seed and Strain releases new batches since I know I can count on it for my needs. Next time you stop in at gLeaf know you can’t go wrong grabbing this strain. Be sure to let them know Toker’s Guide sent you!
