Are you feeling a little fruity these days? Well, join the club. And if that’s the case, I have the strain for you.
This week we’re reviewing Tooty Fruity from The Green House Durango, and let me tell you, if you’re sick of the winter weather and would rather be sitting on a tropical island with a drink in hand, you’ll probably want to grab some of this bad boy. (And who wouldn’t want to be doing that?)
But before we all start daydreaming of dragging an ounce of Tooty Fruity to some tropical sands at a place well outside of the frigid climate of Southwest Colorado, let’s talk a little bit about WHY you’d want this strain on your side. And it all starts with the fruit.
As you may have gathered by the name, Tooty Fruity, or Tutti Frutti, as it’s sometimes called, is a strain that tastes and smells like it should have been grown among the pineapples and dragonfruits of some tropical paradise — not in the grow ops from some Colorado dispensary.
I’m not kidding, you guys. This strain is a fruity flavor that reeks of melons and berries in a fruit salad — not your typical ol’ skunk weed.
In fact, that’s the first thing I noticed when I picked this strain up: the smell. It reminded me of a life outside of my four walls, outside of Colorado — and way outside of a global pandemic. In a dumb way, it kind of reminded me of what it is to be free as a bird in the summer air. (Let me live!)
The second thing I noticed was the sheer amount of tiny popcorn nugs in the bag of weed. At The Green House, this strain is only available in half-ounces or ounces, so I had to grab a halfounce to review it. So, be aware that you’ll have to really commit to this one if you want to try it. You’ll have enough to last for weeks.
Luckily, that commitment was no skin off of my teeth, because I loved this strain as soon as I tried it.
My first thoughts when I inhaled was that this strain tastes just as good as it smells. It’s a fruity punch straight to the skull — and the effects are just as chill as its mellow, tropical vibe.
And, all it took was one bowl of this strain to get the ol’ noggin’ working well enough to start blabbering. After the bowl was cashed, I found I was chatty as hell, talking about everything and anything that I’d been keeping trapped in my brain as of late. (In other words, I was talking about utter nonsense.)
I also found that I was also instantly happy, which is admittedly no small feat these days. I’m not depressed, but cabin fever has officially set in once again, between the snow and the cold and the other day to day nonsense we all deal with. As such, it’s tough to unlock the inner zen sometimes. But this strain did it.
In fact, it unlocked my inner optimist so well that I could not stop laughing. Everything was funny, from the dog chasing its tiny, stumpy tail to him gnawing on the furniture. (Those teeth marks are not funny now that
I’m sober, but they were absolutely funny then.) I laughed so hard at what would have otherwise been mundane or annoying that my abs still hurt as I type this. It was that much laughter.
The only downside to this strain is that I got a little paranoid after a second bowl. Nothing major, but the giggles were traded in for more of a heightened awareness, I guess — which could quickly turned uncomfortable if I’d overdone it.
Luckily, I didn’t — so I was able to ride the occasional bouts of paranoia into happy territory once again. And, it all happened with basically no munchies. That’s a freaking win if I’ve ever heard one.
So, if you’re looking for a quick pickme- up that reminds you of summer and fun and being ever so slightly carefree, Tooty Fruity may be the way to go. You’ll have to buy a metric ton of it if you want to indulge, but it’s a solid strain that you’ll want to keep around anyway — so don’t worry about that part. If you grab some, I have a feeling you’ll be staring at an empty bag of Tooty Fruity in no time flat. I certainly will be.
