Maaaaaaaan...smoke report por favor?
Joie de vivre, like sweet summer rain, Tom.Mrnice "the stones" MKS dom pheno.
Smell and taste is to die for..... Taste like mks with a touch of hazy metalic/flowery.
Very strong and balanced effect.... A bit creeper too... It's the haze.
Smoke is very sweat.... No harchness at all.... It descents into your lungs like morning dew flows on the grass....
I beat myself each time I light one for not having taken a cutting of her.... But I have plenty of F2 to play with.

Hi,Awesome looking bud, Tom!
Take me to that valley when I come visit. Adirondack black?!!! Cool.Change of pace today. Getting away from the 'name' smokes and going with something the locals call 'Adirondack Black'. I don't know a lot about it and some of what I do know I can't say. The seeds were bought back from Mexico about 40 years ago. Over the year's the strain has adapted to this climate. It is grown in a single mountain valley in the Adirondack Mountains. The valley is an old hardwood forest with numerous streams cutting through it. The soil is the richest, blackest, humus soil you have ever seen. It is guessed this is why the weed is so dark. Even the stems and stalks are a very dark color.
Not much to the aroma and taste. Earthy and woodsy with an ever so slight smell of 'homegrown' to it. Taste is similar. I believe it is just harvested, dried, and sold, no curing. I take it home and cure it. This bud is from last years harvest so it's been cured a bit. The 'homegrown' aspect of the smell/taste is gone and it is very smooth. This strain is very similar year after year. I have never found a seed so I will guess some type of breeding is going on to keep the strain so stable.
Up on the mountainside, where the soil is much thinner and more of a grayish brown color, 'Adirondack Green' is grown. It looks more like you would expect a Mexican Sativa to look like but much shorter. The 'Black' has a great buzz. All the senses are heightened so anything you do is very enjoyable but you are not too high to do it. A Sativa like high but not overly potent so it doesn't have any of the hard edges a strong Sativa has such as paranoia, anxiety, or a racing mind. But potent enough you will not want to sit on the couch or try to sleep!
Me? I'm going to take a couple hits and take a hike in the woods behind my house. About 3 ravines over I found a stream with some 'claydogs' in it. Beautiful sunny day to catch a buzz and go into the woods for some 'claydog' hunting!
