From the Highland Grow, “Gaelic Fire is a high-THC indica dominant strain that exhibits flavours of gassy, citrus and sour with buds that range from forest green to pale purple. Genetics: Californian Kush x Pure Bred Afghani.”
According to Leafly, “Cali Kush is a hybrid marijuana strain known to provide uplifting, energizing effects. This strain offers fruity and citrus flavors with spicy hints of coffee and kush. Cali Kush gets its name from the popularity of Kush varieties in its namesake state. Growers say this strain produces buds that are large and dense.”
On Pure Bred Afghani, “The Pure Afghan is an exclusive landrace from the Mazar I Sharif region of Afghanistan. This is one of the only DNA Genetics strains that is bred outside of Holland and are from a fresh seed stock. A rare and rewarding high for the proud cannabis connoisseur.”
An Exotic High
Gaelic Fire by Highland Grow packaged on January 21, 2021, cost $49.95 for 3.5 grams with 24.6% THC and an exotic piney with hints of floral scent. Our test amount was 0.26 grams.
The high starts with an accelerating light euphoric mental lift clearing any fog with a penetrating creative mind. Time is zipping by in the first 10 minutes before slowing down to a more blissful tempo. We transformed into a lightness of being radiating blissful vibes. 24.6% THC is enough to slow time to a crawl. Gaelic Fire delivers an indica version of wake & bake under a blissful umbrella.
The first hour under the influence of Gaelic Fire felt like a few hours may have passed. Wrapped in a cocoon of blissfulness powered by a relaxed creative exuberance, Gaelic Fire delivered a completely enjoyable absorptive high experience. At the end of the second hour, a stronger tranquillizing effect emerged to sooth the body and mind.
Activity pairing for Gaelic Fire is best for the latter part of the day and evening time slots. Gaelic Fire delivers a thoughtful cerebral blissfulness on a euphoric cloud. This bud goes well with some quality “me” time.
By the Numbers
“A lightness of being radiating blissful vibes?” What does that mean? That’s crazy. That’s over the top? Only by entering the psychedelic world of Gaelic Fire can you understand these powerful words. The high experience is somewhere between a Blue Dream and a GG#4, which is interesting and unique.
Would we buy this again? Yes, but not in 3.5 grams packages. We certainly would splurge $85 to $90 for a quarter ounce of Gaelic Fire. Highland Grow’s products are worth the extra cost, which is still in the realm of being reasonable.
On an investment note, craft growers can learn how to price cannabis from Msiku, Truro, Carmel and Highland Grow. These four new craft growers are arguably delivering the best cannabis flowers in Canada and none of them sell above $15 a gram. Furthermore, there will be even more support for Msiku, Truro, Carmel and now Highland Grow products once they get their quarter ounce offering on the market.
