Every once in a while a strain comes around that has something special. Bombs Over Baghdad is one of those strains. It’s very soft-spoken when it comes to looks, smell and taste, but MAN does it have a lot to say. The high is complex and relieves multiple symptoms. This is one of the few Indicas I have come across that doesn’t leave me useless during the day and is narcotic enough to knock me out at night. You can tell a great deal of care went into growing and curing. This is a strain I could smoke all the time and not get sick of.

Very plush looking buds that have decent amount of denseness and spring back nicely when you squeeze one between your fingers. There is a wicked sugary sheen over and inside making the green look washed out. Orange hairs here and there present a nice contrast to the silvery-green. Perfect cure and my grinder had no trouble at all breaking it up. Smell:
The smell was very mild. There was a bit of green smell with a spiciness to it. Not a hashy spiciness, more like black or white pepper.
The taste was mild but very complex. Very earthy and smooth patchouli with a hint of coconut on exhale. Not so much the sweetness of the meat, but the savory earthiness of the husk. There was also a bit of cool cucumber in the aftertaste. The smoke wasn't thick but it expanded a bit.
You guys remember Man-E-Faces from He-man? That's what this bud is. Smoking during the day provides a mellow, euphoric float. It doesn't cloud up my brain and provides a nice amount of pain relief. Grocery shopping was somewhat enjoyable, although I wanted to eat everything in the store. Smoking this at night was a horse of a different color (granted I smoked more during the night sesh). I was melting into my couch while my brain was on some sort of introspective spiritual pilgrimage. The wall behind my TV became more interesting than the show I was watching, and my "screen door" (a remnant from my trippin days) became prominent on the wall. The buzz lasted quite a long time and I woke up the next morning with a bit of a buzz still.
