This Gary Payton from DC i-71 storefront and day spa, Euphoria Healing & Wellness, is a potent but evenly balanced 50/50 hybrid. A cross between Snowman and The Y created by Berner’s Cookies and Powerzzz Genetics, this strain lives up to the hype of its namesake, an NBA Hall of Famer who is considered one of the best point guards of all time.
The most abundant terpene in its profile is caryophyllene, allowing for spicy, peppery hints of flavor and relaxing, anti-inflammatory benefits. You’ll taste sweet vanilla cookies on the inhale and robust, pungent diesel on the exhale. This particular batch has all the essential qualities of dank herb. The high comes on almost immediately and you’ll be coughing with every hit.
The buds are compact, cone-shaped, and vivid green with burnt orange pistils and res-y, crystalline trichomes. Take it slow with this one, as sensations of fascination and pure euphoria can be distracting if you’re trying to complete an important task. Though, admittedly, it's hard not speed through this delicious high-octane gas.
Gary Payton numbed any pain I was experiencing, turned my bad mood around, and provided a highly enjoyable, but heavy body buzz. Overall, I would label it some certified fire in my book.
