Strain Review: Herojuana

Guest post by @IE420

Strain Name: Herojuana
Grade: A+
Type: Hybrid (Indica)

Looks: Lime green marijuana nuggets with areas of dark spotting; heavily covered in trichomes and a bit brittle (dandruff like flaky) on the outside to the touch.

Smell: Very funky with heavy citrus overtones and the slightest hint of “lemon.”

Taste: Similar to smell, a citrus-like funk with a strong “hashy” after-taste.

Buzz Type: Full body buzz with intensity very powerful in the cerebral region.

Buzz Length: Above Average to Long (1.5 to 2 hours)

Summary: I’ve had a cross of Herojuana before almost 4 years ago, but to my surprise I’ve never had the actual strain itself until now.

I found Herojuana to be a very interesting strain. I was able to medicate during the morning and daytime and still function quite normally; but at night, this strain acted a bit different for me (all in a good way).

Dusted in trichomes, I could not really detect the color of the pistols buried underneath them. Flake like on the outside, it was as if these marijuana nuggets were sprinkled with sugar. Taste was somewhat on the citrus/earthy side and strong, but I experienced immediate dry mouth after completion of a bowl. After taste is very hash like and coupled with dry mouth, the after taste does linger for a quite some time. This strain made me reach for water (or any liquid) often!

Herojuana is very relaxing and soothing. I really enjoyed the full frontal tingle feeling while my muscles felt very loose and elastic. This was a very good strain for me to medicate with after my morning workouts. Herojuana was just excellent at combating pain. Although I felt a bit lazy and even slightly tired, I was still able to work and perform my daily responsibilities. If not focused on something or had nothing to do (such as home at night), I would daze out, get immersed in some TV, or be in deep thought with the occasional doze off. At night, I slept like a baby. Some nights I slept to good causing me to be a bit groggy with a slow wake up that took about 15 minutes to clear up.

Regardless of time of use, Herojuana did make me a feel slightly “loopy,” but not where I was not in control of myself. It’s definitely a strain that will make you “sink into your chair.” I found my eyes to be very red and low and like my mouth got dry (keep artificial tears around). Herojuana is unique in its own way, but overall a very solid strain.
