G13 - Hybrid
It is widely believed and accepted that the famous G13 cannabis originated from the United States government (DEA, FBI, CIA), who allegedly ran a cannabis research institute in rural Mississippi in the 1960's and 70's. Reports were made that a "rebel" government worker stole a clone of a pure Afghani strain of cannabis and distributed it to various connections around the United States. This is mostly untrue however. What is known is that a man who went by the name of Sandy Weinstein had a connection at the government funded cannabis research facility conducted at the University of Mississippi. When a man by the name of Neville Schoenmakers one way or another convinced Mr. Weinstein to persuade his friend at the lab to obtain a strain of prime cannabis. It is said that there was a batch of pure Indica Afghani strains of marijuana. These strains were labeled G1 all the way to G23. The G13 strain that was obtained, cloned and distributed by Schoenmakers is said to have been of much higher quality than any of the other Afghanis.
Strain Name: G13 (aka: Government Marijuana)
Looks: My (e) was basically two really fat dense and well cured nugs coated in trichs with a forest green color. I could detect a bit "purple" hue under the macro, but not as noticeable with the eye given the trich coverage. I love seeing big fat dense nugs like this that allow me to scissors "forever."
Smell: Very earthy with hints of grape and fermenting fruit.
Taste: Produces thick dense smoke; actually more like a "pure smoke" with the very slightest hint of a fruity exhale leaving a "sweet" and "sticky" mouth feel after taste for me.
Buzz Type: A heavy tingly full body buzz combined with some serious head "pressure." Slightly psychedelic for me too.
Buzz Length: Average to Above Average (1 hour to 1.5 hours)
* On this refill, I had no idea that I would come across a batch of G13. Just for the historical significance of the G13 strain (this strain is grown by our great United States government), I had to get my hands on a full eighth.
G13 was one of the weirdest strains I have medicated with. I really enjoyed the somewhat "loopy" buzz this strain provided. The "buzz" was balanced head to toe with body tingle with some head pressure. I was able to hold a coherent live conversation, but felt drunk when walking. The majority of time I really felt like I was walking sideways. It felt like my body was at an angle like the Leaning Tower of Pisa. A quite trippy "buzz," but I was focused and very creative.
G13 really did guide me to reach deep in the creativity bucket. Some features on the newest version of my site were implemented on the fly while I was medicated with this strain. It's definitely not the medicinal qualities that stops this strain from being a real solid A/A+, but it's the legs. I found that I had to re-load quite often with any peak being around 1.5 hours. This was after I had what I consider a "Mini-T" break where I was in a situation where I could not medicate for 3 days. I was really hoping to notice longer "legs" after this mini-break, but it was not there although I did feel a stronger buzz intensity.
Definitely worth a try just for the name alone! I've always heard about our Unites States Government and their G13 Marijuana. I am quite glad I got to try it for myself and if you every see this strain where you are, you would be too!
I vaped this strain mostly for taste only since I was near my last nug before I realized I have not vaped this strain yet. But, the taste was great. Left a "cooling" and almost "minty/fruity" like after taste. It very much reminds of new fruity/mint chewing gums out there today such as 5 and Orbit. If you prefer the Vape, G13 will do you quite right. I definitely felt had more "control" over the buzz vaping vs. using my bong.
