THE LONG ROAD HOME (My Toke…)
Every time I’ve had just about enough of Curio I find something that really moves the needle for me.
For weeks, nay months, I’ve been hovering around their Shoki X 87 Limepop
Don’t think it was the name…
So I begin to look for strains that were high in that. Lo and behold, the highest I could find was Shoki X 87 Limepop.
I finally sprang for it…And wow.
To say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement.
The thing that did surprise me was the way in which I seemed to be able to perceive the Durban and the Afghan influences separately.
For me there was a finer line rather than a blurry one when the cerebral focus was traded for mental haze.
Along with it came a dense and heavy body high weighing me down as my appetite grew and my focus became less than honed.
Eventually this shifted all the way to dizziness and an almost horizontal creep to a more restful position – Shoki X 87 Limepop is a cultivar with a complex yet solid, genetic background stemming form a wide spectrum of influence from African X Pakistani Landraces with Durban Chitral and the Afghani leanings of Shoki.
This is truly a nice variety for Maryland to experience as it seems to connect on many pain points including, but not limited to, lack of sleep, lack of appetite, depression, and lethargy to name a few.
The other interesting thing for me was the deepening complexity of the high after repeat sessions. With each successive pull it became more difficult to avoid the gravity of the Afghani and Pakastini kush body-high sedation. The Shoki takes it rightful place at this point and definitely takes the magic carpet ride to a low vibrational idle full-body Stone.
