Review: After a scent test of a number of Lotus Gold strains, this one immediately called out to me. I generally have the best cannabis experiences with chemovars that contain limonene. Whether they are supposed to be sativas, indicas or hybrids, I always get a great, clear-headed energy boost, so I have learned to follow my nose. I was not led astray. It ground up rather easily, and while the smoke did provide a bit of a burn, it was not enough to make me cough. A small amount provided a bit of focus and lifted my mood, but after finishing the bowl, I was ready to start burning through a to-do list that I had only made small advances on in the hours preceding. This is definitely a strain I will be keeping around for those days when talking myself out of bed proves particularly difficult. While Leafly contend that this 50/50 hybrid cross of Hawaiian Romulan and Island Sweet Skunk “looks like a sativa and acts like an indica,” I found the opposite to be true for the effects of this batch of Chupacabra.

Cannabis effects vary wildly from patient to patient based on a multitude of factors, including THC tolerance, brain chemistry and personal taste. This review is based on the subjective experience of one patient.
