There are many things my father taught me here in this room. He taught me: keep your friends close, but your weed closer.”
When I hear the name The Godfather, it brings back memories of Marlon Brando, Al Pacino and one of the greatest familias to ever grace the silver screen.Winning numerous awards, the name alone conjures up memories of film imitating art imitating life imitating film at its finest, so its only appropriate that the Godfather strain of cannabis is also worthy of equally great praise for its potency, aroma and looks. A hybrid consisting of a cross between OG Kush and Granddaddy Purple, the true granddaddy of all purples, The Godfather boasts a classic spicy kush aroma, with the sweet fruity undertone of a grape or purple strain.
The flowers have true purple hues and the buds’ trichomes are crystalline beauties with delicate reddish hairs. After rolling some of this slightly sticky and spicy sweet bud into a joint, I immediately took a few hits. The taste is quite typical of a purple with the hint of grape predominant. The initial buzz is more akin to a sativa buzz that eventually morphs into a body high that lasts close to two hours. For an indica, this certainly was a surprisingly alert, clear-headed, and energetic high rather than a typical sedating effect. Perfect for anytime, because it leave you clearheaded, and mostly absent of the classic couch-lock, Godfather is great for getting some chores done or getting outside.
Medicinally, this strain is great for relieving stress, anxiety and joint pain relief. I also noticed that it relieved my work-induced migraines (you tend to get a lot of those in my line of work…). The Godfather’s genetics are also well known to provide relief to cancer and chemotherapy patients. Its superior medicinal properties are also responsible for appetite stimulation, and relieving the effects of insomnia and nausea.
So finally…for once, I don’t smell a rat…I smell dank stank Godfather purples.
