Tasting 1-2-3: Lamb Sour Diesel (LSD)


Lamb Sour Diesel (LSD)


Barney’s Farm

Hybrid Origins: Mazar x Skunk #1 Flowering: 55-65 days


It doesn’t take a detective to figure out how LSD got its name. This variety lets marijuanas freak flag fly, bringing out pot’s most psychedelic qualities. The Mazar parent is a strain that was probably known by name a decade ago, when it was newer to the scene. Mazar has often been compared with the better known White Widow for the cimilarities in plant and bud structure and effects. Both strains are indicasativa hybrids, although Mazar is more indica heavy, as suggested by the name, which references the presence of Afghani in the parentage and comes from the name af Afghanistan’s fourth largest city, Mazar-e-Sharif.

Barney’s Farm Seed Bank used these long established genetics in combination with the versatile Skunk #1 to create the LSD variety. These parents have passed along many of their strengths. LSD is a hardy, disease-resistant plant that thrives in nearly all reasonable growing conditions. These plants stay light to medium green with leaves that split the difference between sativa and indica thickness. Flowering takes 8 to 9 weeks. At first the LSD plant may seem dense with foliage, but the buds soon outshine the vegetation. LSD buds form slightly curved corkscrew triangles with large stacked calyxes and a profusion of burnished hairs. While plants remain fairly compact and can be staked or grown successfully in a sea of green, LSD also delivers satisfying yields as a multi-branch plant, often reaching 600 grams per square meter. When grown outdoors, LSD plants finish in mid-September.

The LSD flavor mixes a slightly nutty and earthy palate with a dank sweet muskiness. Best of all, LSD lives up to its name, delivering a vivid, euphoric experience that stands out from the typical indica stone. While the body high has depth, the strongest sensation is the super trippy psychedelia that will blow the cobwebs out of the corners of your mind. This strain is great in a stimulating environment. Music, food, and colorful imagery will all be enhanced under its influence. However, overindulgence or overly hectic situations may cause a sense of being overwhelmed so it can be good to stay somewhere that also offers a sense of comfort and safety. Medical users have recommended this strain for nausea, anxiety, depression, and headaches.

Aroma– 8:40 Juicy citrus scent mixed with slight herbal flowers, ammonia strong

Flavor– 8:42 a little harsh,  I think we will trek down to Jambo today and fix that by buying a bong.

8:43 Here we go….. The dryer going sounds are great, I just want to go in and fold some clothes now. Seems like a perfect idea. Now I am talking to my Mate.  Going pretty good at this point he can pick whatever he wants on TV.  I am in my evolving bliss 8:45.  We are just talking it up and laughing.

10:45- ok so quickly I lost myself, and I had so many thoughts to share.  I just skipped it.  Let me tell you though…I think I am brilliant.  I have so much inspiration tonight!!!  If I could only remember all the plans I made.  If I had only written it down like my man suggested.  I think I may need to remember the recording device going forward.

Next Day Sunday 10pm Impromptu visit from my daughter and her Mate.  They want to watch a movie so lets give this another try- Ok so they want to make a gravity bong or Shuttle bong thingy.  Whoa this is awesome.  It hasn’t changed a spec!!! Makes it a lot smoother but oh my god I took the biggest hit ever and pretty sure I am going to be trashed.  Now we are watching Taledega nights.  Ok Non-stop laughing almost borderline crazy giggling.  This movie is so wrong. It is dumb humor and I am loving it.

Now I am up watching movies by myself.  Oh god its 3 am and I can’t sleep.  I can’t get comfortable and I can’t shut off my brain.  Woke up having very scary nightmares all night long.  I woke up screaming at one point.  My daughter reports the same thing.  Oh and this is important.  No appetite.


Overall impression: This one is all over the place, really fun and lots of laughter but throw a cry in there and frost it with sleeplessness and scary dreams.  This one best served with close friends and a fun activity. Score: 3.75

Relationship status: Quite charming.  It’s a fun whirlwind and I am really caught up but my heart feels hollow and I am not sure we will last forever.  It’s not true love and sometimes it makes me really sad.

I am an empty nest, business professional, and until this year, a non-pot-smoker that decided it was time to find out what all the excitement was about. Thanks for joining my adventure!
