Review: The buds of this one were large but light and thoroughly dry throughout but rather aromatic. It crumbled easily when ground but was not harsh on the throat when smoked and maintained its rich flavor. While the effects were subtle enough not to feel weighed-down, they were without a sudden uplifting kick but rather a cool, calm high that intensified subtly over the course of several minutes before evening out into a mellow buzz. This is a strain that I would recommend when you want to be high but not stoned and also when you need a little jolt of energy but not a full lightning bolt. I also tried some of Pro Gro Farms’ Miss U.S.A. run due to its terpene profile but was pleasantly surprised to discover that I preferred Silver Pearl. This was one grower Kalli Keith recommended for review as well, and I understand why. According to Leafly, Silver Pearl is reported to have “strong mental effects that can verge on psychedelic,” but this sativa-dominant hybrid did not have that effect on me.
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.
