The name isnt meant to throw you off, it was around week 5 when I took a long deep inhale to endure the wonderful strawberry fruity tones this particular plant had been perspiring up until this moment. It was almost wretched. An awfully shocking yet enticing spicey smell started to appear. This specific combination of terpenes created something vile… the first word that came to mind was putrid. It stuck. As the name, as weeks past the spiciness that made this insanely trichome covered floral sweet-smelling plant putrid slowly started to calm down with its intensity while trichome production went full swing. This strain smells wonderful even after you chop it and until you put it in a jar. Then time just does the work for you, after a good cure it’s really gassy, floral, sweet terps all dominate your nostrils as you inspect the jar… or grovebag…(that was a totally free mention but a few grovebags wouldn’t go unnoticed lol) The terps with the highest concentrations have entirely different flavor profiles which explains the taste/smell confusion. Humulene giving its spicey woody flavor with beta-caryophyllene also bringing woody yet carrots and spice… mix those 2 terpenes with a high concentration of geraniol providing floral, sweet, and citrusy smells, and pinene with the danky turpentine (basis of our name) balsam, pine and woodiness, not to mention the many, many unmentioned terps because we don’t have all week, provide this strain with such a uniqueness that putrid stuck. These terpenes coincidentally all have anti-cancer benefits. So as heartbreaking it would be to take these home bakery sugared nugs and soak them in alcohol to make RSO, this would be a valuable strain use in a cancer taper program.
