Hey, you. You got a bunch of junk to do and no motivation to do it? Well, well, well. Do I have a fix for you. It’s called Flo Limone, and it is basically the equivalent of drinking 14 summer Red Bulls (the best flavor ever, which is why it’s sold out everywhere).
We’re reviewing Flo Limone this week for The Green House in Durango, and I was kind of surprised that this is the strain they asked us to check out. There are so many unique strains on the floor up at that dispensary right now, and I guess I expected them to hand me some super heavy indica that would make me puddle-glue to the couch.
But let me tell you – it made sense why they handed me this one after I smoked it, cause this strain is definitely a unique one. Flo Limone, if you aren’t familiar, is a sativa that was created by crossing that old beloved and bright strain Flo with Nina Limone. What resulted was this beast of a strain, which has an unassuming name and tiny, dense nugs, but is a real kick in the pants when you smoke it.
And smoke it I did, over and over. I noticed a pretty clear-headed buzz after the first bowl, which was surprisingly pungent and tasty considering how small the nugs are. It tasted a bit like hash and lemon rind, which was pretty pleasant (though it sounds horrible). The second bowl, though: that was what did it. Once that was cashed, I was a freaking productivity machine.
I did laundry, cleaned out the closet, and mopped, all while managing to take in the majority of the crappy documentary I was watching. Once that was done, I wrote a bunch of stuff I’d been putting off for my other (very serious) writing gigs – and all of it was well-organized and well-researched, which makes no sense but I’ll take it.
I then decided I was going to make barbacoa, which is normally a pain in the ass because it has to be slow-cooked for hours on end, but Flo Limone made me a goddang genius on top of a productivity machine, and I decided to pressure cook that massive slab of beef instead. <insert chef’s kiss here>
I don’t know how this strain did it, but holy hell was I productive. I knocked out allllll of the house stuff I’d been putting off for weeks (and by that I mean months), and even started projects I had no intention of messing with. Best of all? I had zero – and I’m talking ZERO – anxiety from this strain. Lately I’ve been getting massive anxiety from sativas, but this wasn’t a racy strain at all. It was oddly mellow, even though it kicked me in the pants in the productivity department.
I don’t know how this strain did it, but a combination of motivation, action, and no anxiety? Hell yeah, I’ll take it. This strain is going to be my Saturday morning go-to. Watch out for me at the farmer’s market as I whiz by with my microgreens and fancy goat cheese.
Maybe I’ll even finally make it up there before the freaking cucumbers sell out. I haven’t managed to get there in time this entire season, but with Flo Limone, literally anything – including me being on time – is possible.
