Strain Review: Blazing Oaks Farms –
By: Zelda Flowers
Watermelon Rancher by Blazing Oaks Farms was a definite crowd pleaser at the release party for the California Farmer’s Showcase 2016 Best of Harvest collection hosted by Natural Cannabis Company. All 28 strains from the collection were available for tasting and the guests, mainly cultivators and industry folks, were encouraged to vote for their favorite. The results were a three-way tie; a testament to the overall quality of the showcased cannabis. Watermelon Rancher was one of the three winners and one of the most talked about strains of the day.
Watermelon Rancher has an aroma that makes you want to just stick your nose in and inhale. The fragrant, sweet fruitiness is balanced with a sharp, sour melon that carries over into the medium-bodied smoke. There’s a residual tart fruitiness in the aftertaste but this strain truly shines in its perfume.
Although I don’t know this strain’s specifics, it’s safe to assume that Watermelon and Jolly Rancher feature heavily in its genetics. The result is a nice combination of head and body effects. The head effects settle mainly around the eyes with a pleasing, relaxed sensation in the body. It’s easy to see this strain being effective for pain relief. A long-lasting, calm, dreaminess is the overall result. Watermelon Rancher is a great afternoon break or early evening strain in smaller amounts and a great way to end your day and prepare for bed with a few more tokes.
Summary: Watermelon Rancher is a dreamy calming strain with the aroma of sour candied fruits. Long lasting and peaceful, it makes a wonderful break from the stress of everyday life.
