Shrieker comes with a blast, a bonafide jolt of screaming energy and cerebral bliss. It’s named accurately (it’s sometimes called “The Shriek”) and roars with Sativa-heavy surety (80/20) and a tasty lime-like flavor on the exhale. The spicy slurry of fruit flavors and rush of motivated happy power makes Shrieker a fly-high strain, a strain that’ll make you soar off your couch (and back down) and enjoy your day.
Shrieker is like a mental alarm clock, a scream of energy. If you want to get up, get the day going, get motivated, this is the strain for you. This strain will be at your ear, beckoning you to get to work. It grows in tight, compact structures of buds cloaked in frosty trichomes. It’s very blue-tinted, alien and clean, and powerful like a flower on Pandora.
Novice growers may be wondering why the gas stove they probably don’t own is leaking if they’re not prepared for the shocking ammonia scents that will waft off your garden if it’s full of Shrieker. The yield is heavy too, flowering in a spry 65 days, on average. But you gotta be prepared for the … cat piss. That’s the smell, if we’re being honest. It’s the airy ammonia flavor of stinky cat piss.
Shrieker was originally bred by Exotic Genetix but is now sold by Rise, the popular dispensary. Its lineage isn’t 100% certain, but we know it includes Miami Haze and The Cube. That’s probably where it got the ammonia smell on the ground and the spicy citrus-earth flavors in your mouth.
So you’re ready to jumpstart your morning or afternoon with Shrieker. What can you expect? The first sensation is a “jolt” that really sells the strain’s name. It’s mental, it’s a rush, and it makes you feel really motivated to live your day. 2% CBD probably has something to do with that. You’ll get the spicy earth flavor next as your mind lifts up and makes you feel great. You may feel like sitting on your couch for a while even as your mind is flying high.
Who should use Shrieker? Like many wake and bake strains, it’s great for people suffering from chronic stress, fatigue, and depression. Those who have weak stomachs and a loss of appetite can also jumpstart their hunger with Shrieker. An added effect that you don’t always come across is Shrieker’s ability to help reduce eye pressure, which is particularly effective for people with glaucoma.
On the exhale, you’ll taste the spicy, lemon-lime flavor that really helps you overcome the bad name owing to the plant’s aggressive smell. If you need to wake and bake and get motivated and don’t mind getting Shrieked at, definitely give this one a go.
