Smell: Don’t get me wrong: Petrol Rainbow is a gassy strain, with Diesel smells playing the most active role every time I get a whiff. But an underlying creamy sweetness never goes away, with a distinctive hint of roses lingering after those gas characteristics fade.
Flavor: Despite showing off more balance and floral aspects in my nostrils, Petrol Rainbow’s flavor was dominated by skunky, rubbery tastes of fuel and a yeasty, piney aftertaste, with little sweetness.
Effects: Although not heavy in the sense of melting my body, Petrol Rainbow’s high hits like a sack of bricks almost immediately. A form of zoned-out energy took over for a few hours, making me productive in short bursts but not clear-headed enough to take on anything more substantial than continued closet rearrangement. Without outdoor activities planned or a workout in your future, I won’t recommend riding the Petrol Rainbow — especially right before bed — but the potent effects and light anxiety make it worth keeping for activity time.
