Gas Face strain: cannabis that fuels the flame

gas face strain

Much like wine with complex tasting notes, cannabis profiles like that of the Gas Face strain speak to a specific palate. The diesel aroma of a real gas weed is unmatched, but the flavor profile is not for everyone. It is for New York, though, according to the Office of Cannabis Management annual report.

Gas Face ranked as the top selling strain with an everlasting NYC favorite Sour Diesel and Blueberry Muffin in third. Despite the polarizing smell, this sect of strains are some of the most memorable indica hybrids available.

The gassy strain was created by long-time breeders Seed Junky Genetics in a complicated cross of exotic weed. Parents of the indica hybrid are Face Mints (Face Off OG and Kush Mints) and Biscotti crossed with Sherb BX. With their powers combined, the Gas Face strain brings creativity and relaxation with a side of diesel.

Look and smell of Gas Face

Gas Face strain features an earthy diesel aroma with almost purple medium-dense nugs covered in trichomes. This indica strain grows rotund but spear-like buds that grow somewhat leafy; these aren’t tightly wound but also not larfy. They are forest green with dark purple sparkling leaves.

One Redditer claiming to have this variety with no gassy smell showed nugs that seemed to be PGR weed. They were exceptionally dense, but without the iconic terpene profile, what’s the point? Look for the right structure to possibly find a bud with a more developed palate.

As for the scent, Gas Face is a strain named after its smell. The cannabis cultivar grows rich in caryophyllene, myrcene, and limonene in a configuration that features tar and ammonia. This signature scent may not sound perfect, but it’s a coveted cannabis category by those who have had the honor of enjoying a classic gas strain.
