Initial Thoughts

With a name like King Kong Piss it’s hard not to be intrigued by the latest offering from DC i-71 storefront dispensary, HotBox Uptown, and that's even before seeing or smelling the sample. The names that stoners come up with for strains never cease to amaze me, but I’m just glad it didn’t taste anything like the name in a literal sense. 😅

Appearance

Greens and purples collide to create a distinct contrast in colors on these dense, rotund buds. The trichomes are abundant and still white.


Status

Fresh, but beginning to cure. Perfect moisture.


Aroma

A pungent and mega skunky aroma was immediately noticeable. Notes of tropical fruits and fuel combine to demonstrate just how fresh this batch is.

Flavor

The first thing I noticed was the smoothness that this King Kong Piss had toke after toke. Sweet inhales that lead to effortless exhales. It took me about half the joint before I keyed in on the grape flavor that makes this strain extra enjoyable. Gassy, grape-like, and slightly sour is how I would characterize the aftertaste of this batch. Delicious.


Lineage

The lineage for King Kong Piss is unknown, but one can assume it's a cross of King Kong and Cheetah Piss. We also believe it to be a balanced 50/50 hybrid.


Effects

As I lit up, the first few draws lifted my spirits and energized my mind. The effects are mostly cerebral, but my body did appreciate the gentle soothing and calming effect that melted away any stress or tension. Perhaps most notable for me was the immense case of munchies I experienced. I had to raid my pantry in a way King Kong would have been proud of - already deciding what to eat next while I stuffed my face with the last snack.
