Midnight Express is an evenly balanced hybrid strain (50% indica/50% sativa) created through a cross of the highly medicinal Cannatonic X Freedom Fighter Express strains. Ready to take a ride on the Midnight Express? With its insanely high 4:3 CBD:THC ratio, this ride is definitely one you’ll want to take again and again. That being said, the Midnight Express high is pretty mellow in nature, with effects that are rather reserved instead of hitting you hard. You’ll feel a lifted onset a few minutes after your first toke, filling your cerebral state with a budding euphoria that pushes away any negative or racing thoughts with ease. You’ll feel a light touch of motivation and creativity come next, filling you with the power that you need to get going on anything and everything on your to-do list. With these effects and its mellow 6-9% THC level and 9-12% CBD level, Midnight Express is often said to be perfect for treating those suffering from conditions such as chronic fatigue, depression or mood swings, chronic stress and headaches or migraines. This bud has a mouthwatering sweet tropical flavor with hints of grape bubblegum. The aroma is earthy and flowery with a spicy grape overtone that’s accented by touches of bubblegum and tropical fruits. Midnight Express buds have tapered spade-shaped dark olive green nugs with long thin orange hairs, Purple undertones and a coating of frosty tiny purple-tinted crystal trichomes.
What’s the best way to consume kief?
As previously stated, most people just end up sprinkling a little bit (or a lot) of kief on top of the weed in their pipes or joints; though this is a great method that adds a punch of potency and/or flavor to normal flowers, it doesn’t allow you to experience the kief on its own. Our recommended method for smoking kief is to use a screen on top of a glass pipe. You can purchase durable specialty titanium screens for smoking hash at well-stocked head shops, but you can even use a standard stainless steel pipe screen with no issues.
Gently heating the kief using indirect flame (held an inch or two above the kief) is the best way to release the essential oils and prevent burning it — good kief will begin to bubble and melt like you see with high-grade water hash, leaving behind very little residue and giving a full-flavored hit. On the flip side, poorly refined kief can taste harsh and woody due to the presence of remnant plant matter, so if you care about flavor, it’s important to try and get your kief as clean as possible before smoking. If you have access to any kind of microscope, look for flecks of green and trichome stalks in your kief — this will indicate that your kief isn’t totally pure and may need more refining.
