Colorado’s cannabis and craft-beer industries are sometimes in contrast, however whereas they may boast related demographics, the 2 companies are very totally different in a number of necessary methods. As an illustration, not like Colorado liquor shops, which frequently are state-centric of their craft-beer picks, Colorado dispensaries generally appear to favor California genetics over strains that received their begin regionally. So it’s all the time good to see a hometown pressure, resembling Bear Dance, get some business love in Denver.
A cross of Snowcap and Suge Pure Kush by Colorado breeder 303 Seeds, Bear Dance is often thought of a daytime pressure or perhaps a near-hybrid by dispensaries, but it surely’s nearly all the time a sedative excessive for me. The pressure’s fruity, tacky notes are made for an after-dinner smoke, and the results are sufficiently calming and euphoric to chill out a drained, full physique.
Most business variations of Bear Dance carry a candy funk, with heavy notes of cheese and chocolate and a contact of lemon. Nonetheless, homegrown variations can get a lot funkier and fruitier and darker in colour, displaying the range in phenotypes available on the market.
Because of its reputation amongst dispensary and wholesale grows alike, Bear Dance is simple to seek out in Colorado. We’ve seen it at Buddy Boy, the Dab by Subsequent Harvest, DANK, Euflora, Ganja Connoisseur, Inexperienced Dragon, Groundswell, the Joint, Sort Love, the Lodge, LoDo Wellness Middle, Magnolia Highway, RiNo Provide Co., Rocky Highway, Smokin Gun Apothecary, the Stone and Tetra Hydro Middle, and lots extra most likely inventory it as effectively, given the wholesale operations of Sort Love, Silverpeak and elsewhere. My favourite lower comes from Sort Love, which additionally sells clones of Bear Dance on the dispensary so you’ll be able to develop that funky delight at house.
Seems to be: Though its segmented buds could make the pressure look unfastened, Bear Dance’s calyxes can get fairly dense. The pressure’s spherical and cone-shaped buds can turn into extraordinarily lime-green, with orange calyxes and plump, frosty trichomes which can be good for extraction.
Odor: Floral, bitter and funky with a touch of berries, Bear Dance additionally carries some spicy notes — however that fruit-cheese-vanilla melody makes it laborious to note. I’ve additionally smelled candy notes of chocolate, pine and lemon in business cuts of Bear Dance.
Taste: Bear Dance is understood for candy, floral and creamy flavors that may carry a bitter lemon twist on the finish. These creamy notes and hints of lavender and citrus give Bear Dance a tacky funk, adopted by delicate tastes of blended berries.
Results: Don’t let a dispensary’s sativa designation trick you into smoking Bear Dance earlier than a exercise. The excessive is initially uplifting and euphoric, however that power shortly fades, even when the happiness and giggles don’t. Medical sufferers have used Bear Dance for psychological anguish and insomnia, in addition to minor ache.
Dwelling grower’s take: “This shit actually doubled in top over the span of a few week throughout flower. It additionally took seventy days to reap, which is means too lengthy for my style. That being stated, the odor and taste have been nearly value all of the topping and upkeep it took — nearly. It’s simply an excessive amount of work in comparison with different strains, even when it does style good.”
Breeder’s take (by way of 303 Seeds): “The feminine for this challenge was initially considered a singular lower of Durban Poison, as a consequence of its sativa nature and lemon zest terpene profile, however was later recognized as Snowcap by a number of others holding the identical chopping. … The lemon/vanilla/menthol terpene profile of the Snowcap is unbelievable and might dominate even the skunkiest of rooms with ease. Nice manufacturing for a sativa pressure, with a end of about 9 weeks. A pairing with the Pure Kush/Uzbekistani Hashplant male places the ability of the Bear in your arms. Enormous, bushy, snow-covered beast-sized buds with the souls of tropical butterflies. … Count on a good stretch on nearly all of phenotypes, with a ending time of 9 to 10 weeks.”
