DESCRIPTION: Hailing from the misty mountains of the Pacific Northwest, Bell Ringer packs quite a punch at the end of a long day. This indica-dominant hybrid was crafted through a three-way cross between Hindu Skunk, Stardawg, and Pre-98 Bubba Kush, giving her a complex flavor and bold effects that should only be enjoyed by experienced users.
THC levels tend to be very solid here with 25% being found on dispensary shelves time and time again. These large nugs are deep forest green and are accented with furry orange pistils and a rich coating of trichomes, however, their appearance tells only a part of the story. Flavors and aromas aren’t for the faint of heart, as notes of skunk, herbs, diesel, citrus, and earth all blend together for something that’s typically only an acquired taste.
Bell Ringer is a great way to end your day, assuming you have literally nothing left to do until bedtime. Instantly after your first toke, you’ll be hit hard with a hazy feeling that leaves your head a bit spacey yet totally happy. Relaxation comes in full force here and spreads to your toes, leaving you with little motivation to do much of anything. Ready for the kicker? Your laziness will be coupled with an insane case of the munchies! Any smart smoker will bring all of the snacks to the couch beforehand in order to avoid an uncomfortable situation.
Medical patients love Bell Ringer for her ability to pretty much knock you out in one go. While tolerance levels certainly vary from user to user, this bud helps with insomnia like nothing else, and before long you’ll be sleeping harder than you have in a long time. Before that though, this strain will work her darndest to relieve you of pain, depression, and of course, increase the appetite of those who have issues in that department.
Growers at Khush Kush certainly pride themselves on this particular strain, yet her availability for home cultivation is sorely lacking. Seeds do not seem to be available online, and fans of the strain even mention that it can be hard to find at their local dispensary. Whether the strain is still in production remains to be seen, but at this point, we’d say it’s safe to let this one go and focus your cultivation efforts on other, easier to find options.
Novice cannabis users may want to find a lighter strain to end their day with, as Bell Ringer will grab ahold of you and take you to your stoney limits quickly. For those more experienced, this type of high is exactly what’s needed after a long week at work, a breakup with your significant other, or a particularly troubling day full of bodily pain. Boost your mood and then pass the hell out with this rare bud, assuming you can find it.
