Venom OG strain review with pics
Strain Name: Venom OG
Date Acquired: August 28, 2011
Type: Hybrid - Indica dominant
Looks: Deep green and purple/black marijuana nuggets encased in cobwebs of orange hair and covered with powdery trichs.
Smell: Nutmeg, leather, and lemon furniture polish.
Taste: A danky rich grape pixy stick powder like flavor; very rich and fruity. Even hints of "red meat." Also tasted a bit of sour lemon which was very prevalent just immediately after a big exhale.
Buzz Type: Gave me a major head buzz with noticeable forehead pressure. Starts of very energetic (a full body tingle) then balances out with heavy pressure felt behind the eyes with body relaxation.
Buzz Length: Above Average to Long (1.5 to 2 hours)
Listed as a Hybrid, this strain was quite interesting as it starts off very "Sativa-like;" mellowing out to a more "Indica-like" buzz/high. When the medication first took effect, it felt like thousands of ants were crawling on my skin. I was initially "hit" with some extreme body tingle. It also felt like I had in increase in body temperature ("inside" of me was feeling very warm).
Once the Sativa side of this buzz subsided, I felt a heaviness behind the eyes (very similiar to what I feel with Kush strains). This was coupled with some head pressure as the buzz definitely did somewhat of a "180" given me a feeling of relaxation (more of a melting sensation vs. tingly ants).
I did medicate with Venom OG during the day. The tingle surge I felt at the beginning is like a shock to my system getting me up and going as after my morning gym sessions, I don't have much time to rest as it is usually straight to work right after the gym. So when going hard at the gym; ending a session tired and sore, Venom OG was able to keep me going because I was energized and the "pressure" around my head that was also felt though my entire body put my pain in check allowing to me to transition from "play" to "work" without much delay as I am always under the clock getting to my work (job) after my workout (gym). But, despite using this strain during the day, I did have to be aware and careful. Venom OG got me "hard" once after a workout where I ended up nodding off at my desk while working. So for day use, I had to medicate at home only; staying indoors making sure I had no outside errands to perform.
A "fun" side of Venom OG was the taste profile for me. This strain was very "tasty." My tongue's palette was provided with a variety of "flavors" bonghit after bonghit.
Overall, I'd say Venom OG would lean slightly to the Sativa side in regard to dominance although some may find it may hit them more Indica heavy.

Platinum Jack strain review
Strain Name: Platinum Jack
Date Acquired: November 14, 2011
Looks: A nice large crown with three smaller marijuana nuggets wearing a thick coat of sugary trichs with visible "orange/red/rust" hair.
Smell: Sweet, sugary peppermint stripped candy.
Taste: Not like it smells. Taste was more like unwashed vegetables vs. sweet fruit.
Buzz Type: Active focus and clarity. Energetic
Buzz Length: Above Average to Very Long (1.5 hours to 2 hours)
* Platinum Jack reminded basically had me thinking a "funked up" Jack Herer. This strain had lots of "funk" overtones. Having a very dank smell on the exhale, I had to use this strain outside as the smell of exhaled smoke was just as bad as some heavy Indica strains.
The strains Headiness snuck up on me with progression in "head tingle." I felt it most behind the eyes as the tingle I felt was met with a bit of a sensation of pressure. I was slightly jittery and heady similar to some better batches ofGreen Crack I've had in the past.
A big plus was I had a strong sense of focus although I had to be doing something or I was just moving around. I felt like I was working in overdrive and/or I hard for me to sit down and stay still.
Platinum Jack came with a case of the munchies too. I craved everything sweet and salty. Luckily, this strain made me active because aside from that, I was always eating!

This strain is well known for being super potent with a mild citrus or tropical aroma. Cindy is great for daytime use and provides plenty of energy. Be careful not to underestimate C-99. Cinderella 99 is a sativa-dominant strain and provides all the good sativa benefits.
Sour Diesel Strain Review
A sativa-dominant hybrid, Sour Diesel has a Diesel / candy-like smell and a very distinct taste. Great for energy and focus, and works well in the daytime when you have to get things done.
Strain Name: Sour Diesel
Date Acquired: March 20, 2012 & March 31, 2012
Looks: Thick, pellet like marijuana nugget deep green in color covered in sugary trichs.
Smell: Light hint of fuel; like gasoline vapor with hints of pine and lemon.
Taste: Sour lemon.
Buzz Type: Mellowing and relaxing full body buzz with slight bit of headiness. Creativity enhanced.
Buzz Length: Above Average to Very Long (1.5 to 2+ hours)
* It's been a while since I medicated with some Sour Diesel. The smell and taste is as classic as this strain itself. One hit blindfolded and you would know it is Sour D. Body tingle intensifies over the duration of the high to the point it felt like a million ants are crawling on me for a few minutes. Then, I would just cruise into a state of mellowness.
Sour Diesel is also a very relaxing strain at which I found I tapped into my creative side.
This batch of Sour Diesel was a bit heavy and that heaviness can be powerful. I actually found myself dozing off a few times on this Sativa dominant strain. I kind of like that since that heaviness kind of works with the "tingle."
Sour Diesel is a tasty strain. I would always think; "powdered lemon candy sticks." Really large packed bowls did provide a more dank fuel like and very sour taste that I found could be a bit strong leaving an overbearing after taste.
Larger marijuana nuggets looked very "thick," but were "delicate" to the touch.
Overall, Sour Diesel is a nice classic strain, but I did smoke this batch fast. I refilled with this same batch twice and medicated with twice as many flowers within the same time frame as my Indica strain such as Spartacus OG. This batch would be an A+ strain if not for going through a fill so fast. Otherwise, this is a nice rendition of really a now "classic" strain.
