About Paradise Waits
Perhaps the team at Scarlet Fire Farms are huge snowboarding enthusiasts or they just happened to name their bud after a 2015 documentary, but either way, it doesn’t much matter. Paradise Waits is one of many mysterious creations coming out of Humboldt County, California, and by crossing Harlequin with their very own strain dubbed Scarlet Fire, they’ve developed a plant that’s worth writing home about.
While exact potency data is a bit scarce, reports have stated that Paradise Waits clocks in at a whopping 29% THC, making her appropriate for only the most experienced smokers. Her nugs are very firm and feature an array of colors that include dark green to golden amber with undertones of purple just barely peeking through. The flavors and aromas of this rare strain might surprise you a bit, as a mixture of citrus and hash create something that’s both sour and sweet. Many describe her taste as fresh and floral with just a hint of diesel and cream, making her an ideal choice after dinner.
Perhaps more aptly named due to her typical effects, Paradise Waits will bring many users to that place of absolute bliss we all long for with a sensation of total relaxation that usually comes on hard and fast. Perhaps more psychedelic than others, this strain has been reported to cause minor visual and auditory hallucinations that lead to a feeling of physical heaviness. Sometimes, a case of the giggles might ensue with this strain, so consider inviting friends over to help smoke her with you. Ultimately, it’s not a surprise that many people end up fast asleep after a few hours, but not before devouring some snacks first.
As much as home cultivators might love to get their hands on seeds of Paradise Waits, we’re sad to say that’s not really an option. Scarlet Fire Farms is a small, family-run operation who prides themselves on organic and conscientious growing practices, and it doesn’t seem like they’ll be selling seeds any time soon. If you live in Northern California, keep your eyes out for Paradise Waits as you’ll likely be able to find it with ease. Others across the world will just have to keep waiting before they gain access to this special bud.
When you consider the hallmarks of an awesome strain, Paradise Waits seems to have it all - her complex flavors are enticing and delicious, she’s potent as can be, and she offers a set of well-rounded effects that will take even the most seasoned smokers on quite a ride. Above all else, remember to clear your calendar before you indulge, because as amazing as this bud truly is, she’ll also likely render you pretty much useless.
