Strain Review: Russian Cream by LoganLocal

We all know not to judge a book by its cover, but I also think we shouldn’t judge a strain by its name. ⁠⠀
To say Russian Cream (aka White Russian) surprised me is an understatement.

Lineage/Genetics: White Widow x AK-47

Original Breeder: Serious Seeds

Grower: LoganLocal

Russian Cream Strain Review

Sunday afternoon I was on the couch with my cartoons cued up, candle lit, and red velvet cake ready for munching. I was fully prepared for couch-lock to take over and transport me to nap land, but instead, the opposite happened. I was shocked to be so clear-headed, relaxed, and energized after smoking this indica-dominant cross of White Widow and AK-47. The effects from Russian Cream are exactly what I need on weekday mornings when it’s cold and I barely want to get out of bed. ⁠⠀
I reflected on why I expected this strain to be heavy and determined that the name misled me. I’ve never been a Backwoods girl, but I know they’re a cult fave that pack a punch, so I expected the same from a strain associated with them. I also try not to look up strains before I review them because I don’t like to bias my experience and I want to fine-tune my palate to all the terps! That said, had I Googled the strain before consumption, I’d have known that it’s a cross of two fairly energizing hybrids and tempered my expectations, but what would be the fun in that? ⁠⠀
Sure, we all need a stash of our go-to’s, but writing reviews has taught me to try cultivars with obscure names because I know I’ll be surprised and honestly, that’s the kind of delight I need in my life these days. ⁠⠀
I scooped some new stuff from @loganlocal47 last week and have a backlog of stuff to try so I’d love to know what reviews you all want to see. The options include Daniel Larusso, Sugar Cone, Meat Breath, Thin Mints, Gary Payton, and Area 41. ⁠⠀
