Satori Strain Review – from Desert Bloom Re-Leaf Center

This morning’s Wake and Bake review is on the Satori strain, a RE-LEAF brand, from Desert Bloom Re-Leaf Center in Tucson.

satori-budsI checked out the bud and visually, this Satori flower was mostly a medium green with wild, burnt orange hairs sticking out. When I pressed on it and I could tell it wasn’t going to fall apart, I squeezed it harder and the bud actually held the pressed form. This was new. It must be sticky in there, I was thinking. The bud smelled fruity and citrusy; very aromatic.  

We ground up the bud in our GR8TR grinder from Kannastör, rolled up our morning joint and away we went.

satori-grinderTrue to its smell, the Satori bud tasted fruity and citrusy – even still half way through the joint. It was slow-burning, due to its stickiness. 

After a few minutes, I was feeling my sore muscles turn into tingling sensations. My eyes felt a little heavy so I grabbed my glasses. I decided to go for a walk to see if my body was feeling heavy, on this cloudy November morning. It was 60 degrees outside at 8 a.m. and it looked like rain was on its way.  

My body felt a little bit heavy and I was definitely feeling relaxed so I was thinking indica-dominant hybrid. I did the selfie test and I looked a little stoned. Time to research it.

A Sativa-dominant hybrid, its name is a term that comes from Japanese Zen Buddhism that literally translates to understanding. In the Zen Buddhism religion it is used to refer to enlightenment.”

I was beginning to think this was supposed to be helpful in meditation. Time to check another source.

According to Leafly, “This strain is a true hybrid in that it is a 50/50 mix of sativa and indica. Mandala Seeds bred Satori by crossing Lucid Dream with another unnamed sativa hybrid.”

It’s supposed to treat stress/anxiety, pain, inflammation and depression. The effects are said to be uplifted, euphoric, happy, energetic, focused and creative.

I’d say my experience was relatively close to those descriptions. I definitely felt my pain ease away, I was focused and relaxed, and was close on the indica-dominant hybrid, if it’s really 50/50.
