- Spectrum Of Effect reports on all strains considered of medicinal quality
I've expanded DJ Short's article, Spectrum Of Effects, into a report design to be a tool for the medical grower - to allow her to tailer her garden to her ailments' specific needs. The report takes hours to complete and should be edited as the patient becomes more familiar with the effects. I usually do not write a report until I have grown a strain 3 times, until it becomes pedestrian. This sounds like fun but it is not as easy as one would think, spectrum reports require dedication and countless hours of being high.
These reports will be a great tool for medical marijuana patients and great advertising for the some of the heros of the medical marijuana world - the breeder who breeds for excellence, charges top dollar, and doesn't pretend to be our friend while being a whore. I owe three of these breeders my life and these reports will be a way of repaying what they have given to me by doing what they love. Repayment by filling their pockets full of much deserved gold. I think they deserve more gold and I think that I can get what I want by finding new ways for all breeders to fill their pockets with gold. Almost all breeders.
Spectrum Of Effects
Kali Mist - Serious seeds
I've always had trouble getting strains to finish on time so taking on a 14 week strain was daunting for me, my KM clones usually finish about 16 weeks hydro and 17 weeks soilless. It grows easily but stretches incredibly in hydro, I had a 1.5" clone that ended up close to 36". In soilless stretch is not so bad, but its still a sativa stretch. The buds are loose and airy in hydro and are so encrusted with trichomes that they seem that they would break if bent. The soilless buds are tighter and not as crusty. Fox farm liquids and solubles, hygrozome, Dark Energy, Liquid Karma, Kool Bloom, Overdrive.
The high is ... delisious. It's so beautiful and pleasant that I crave it more than the other strains and go through this strain at a record pace. It's a floaty dreamy high, like an up narcotic. Nothing maters, everything is OK. It reminds me of when I had my elbows operated on and got a hundred percocet with each operation. Like an opiate nothing is wrong, but I can do things, not just sit and look out the window. I use 2 of 12 spots in my garden for Kali Mist and I may add another two spots.
I find myself very forgeful while high on Kali Mist, and I know it while I'm high and I don't care. Just now I'm keeping my dogs seperated because of an operation one had, the second dog got by me twice (under my desk - 3' wide hole) and I didn't notice for a half hour each time.
The smell and taste is a beautiful strong spice, I can smell it everytime I crack the jar, and I've had my nose broken a few times so I don't smell so good. But after a shower I can smell this stuff, very strong. After a 4 week hang/bag/cure vaporizing gives an incredibly smooth vapor, very thick Volcano bags with 1/3 level teaspoon.
This isn't a trippy or a knock out of reality high but it's very stong. I've read it described as a cutting high, right through other strains and moods, and I agree.
Spectrum Of Experience
Onset: fast effect or creeper. 1 fast/5 slow: 2
I've just taken 3 hits and can feel a tingle everywhere and pressure in the top of my head and ears.
1. Up (stimulating) and Down (sedative): Neither.
Liven the disposition and stimulate the emotions: encourages a love of existance.
Inspiring sociability and talkativeness: You could stand just about anybody on this high.
Sedative and depressant effects: Chill but not sedative. If you want to do things you can, but you have to make a small initial effort to overcome inertia.
2. Head High / Body Stone: mostly head.
Energizing: Not energizing but not couch lock.
Motivating: Frees inhibition but there is inertia to overcome.
Couch lock: No, see above.
3. Tolerance: ability to provide the same experience via the same amount over time – the burnout factor. "Over time" means the long run: months, years, decades...
I've been vaping Kali Mist for 4 or 5 months and the high seems to be getting better, probably because I'm getting better at growing and curing it, but the high is better 4 months later. No chasing the Dragon.
4. Ceiling: How high (of far) one is capable of going with the variety. How many hits can be consumed until more hits are unnoticeable.
I notice a ceiling, but it takes a few Volcano bags.
5. Emotional State
Anxiety: melts anxiety, nothing is wrong.
Euphoria: not so much euphoria as bliss.
Calm: very calming
paranoia: reduces or eliminates paranoia.
6. Body - medicinal effects
Nausea: mild help
Pain: fair help
Seizures: not known
Back: fair help
7. Head - medicinal effects
Depression: works like a dreamy opiate
Anxiety: good help
Antisocial: you could tolerate anyone high on this strain.
Rage: From first hand experience, this strain has saved some lives. Medicinal help.
8. Duration short 1 2 3 4 5 long: 3
Two consecutive Volcano bags will last two hours.
9. Potency: weak 1 2 3 4 5 strong: 4. Hit's hard but not time loosing nor reality knocking out of. Cutting dreamy high.
10. Taste: SPICE
Overall just a great strain, if you've got room for a 14 week sativa and want a dreamy high I couldn't recomend Serious Kali Mist higher.
note: I have Kali down to 11 weeks growing CCOB style, faster harvest, bigger yield, more potent bud, easier, cheaper, lots of fun, the simple logic scares hippies away ...
I never forget thoughtless kindness
I always repay
I never forget needless cruelty.
I never forgive
I will become the wrath of the suffering
And I will be 'VENGED!
