Hey everybody, today I'm reviewing Pure Sun Farms Knockout.
I'm a big fan of Archive Seeds. However, I'm not entirely certain which Archive Seeds' specific offerings this is because they have several products with a similar lineage.
Pure SunFarms show their Knockout as a Face Off OG and Girl Scout Cookie cross. If you assume Girl Scout Cookies implies Thin Mint and/or Forum (like I do), Archive Seeds offers three different seed varieties that could fit this description: Junior Mints, Polynesian Thin Mints, and Samosas.
Archive Seed Bank has the best strain descriptions. They provide a wealth of information, and the story behind Polynesian Thin Mints is an interesting read. You can also look around in the orange offerings for the true lineage of Crockett's Tangie.
Back to Face Off / Cookie crosses, all three of these offerings are a bit different, I'd expect. Likewise, to appreciate the nuances, you'd likely need to compare them side by side. Without genotyping or them telling you straight up, it's hard to say which specific strain Pure SunFarms is growing and offering under their Knockout house name.
Additionally, Face Off OG and Girl Scout Cookies are both popular strains, which increases the likelihood that this cross could be produced by others, as we've seen with Pheno Finder and the Wedding Cake that Squid Pants grew.
I received a collection of medium and small buds. Regardless of their size, the buds appeared full.
Feel is chewy and firm.
The scent is primarily earthy and gassy, with secondary notes of pine and floral resin that add dimension. There's a noticeable buzz on the nose.
The flavor profile on the frontage is characterized by sweetness and earthiness, with a subtle hint of fresh pine. Secondary notes of fuel and prominent spice contribute to a flavor reminiscent of cookies. It has a simplicity to it, yet it's very enjoyable.
All in all, there were a few minor instances where some less favorable elements surfaced, but it's unclear whether these stem from the cultivation process or the specific cultivar. Regardless, this is an immensely enjoyable experience with exceptional flower quality. We'll delve deeper below.
