Guice, also known as “The Guice,” is an evenly balanced hybrid strain with sky-high THC levels and a heavy, potent flavor of chemical sweetness mixed with a chocolate fruit dessert. Guice was bred by the team at Exotic Genetics out of Washington from a cross between Orange Valley OG and Gorilla Glue #4. Those experienced in either of its heavy-hitting parents will know what to expect if they decide to spend an afternoon with Guice. We’ll elaborate for everyone else: you’ll be energized, creative, euphoric, and punch-drunk relaxed from the flavor of chem-chocolate, herbs, and pine.
This strain is a heavy producer, growing in plants that tend to be on the tall side and flowering in 56-63 days. Both inside and outside growing conditions are acceptable — expect a late September harvest if you opt for the latter. Inside growers can set their temperatures lower in the evening to try and increase the amount of purple coloring in Guice’s buds, which are more typically a heavy, olive-green color. The buds are dense, with dark amber pistils and tiny orange trichomes.
GROWING TIPS: We recommend regular pruning for your Guice crops, which is why growers with a little more experience may fare better with it. The heavy yields will be a trick to keep up with otherwise. Guice demands to be regularly pruned so that its wide leaves don’t block light and air from its important lower branches. To make your life easier, we recommend pruning the plants into multi-topped shrubs to encourage balanced growth and encourage air/light circulation.
When taking a breath of Guice, you are met with a taste of sour, chemmy coffee and deep chocolate. It may remind you of a big drink of high-caffeine coffee in that the strain’s mentally uplifting energy serves as motivation and creative clarity. Those who crave caffeine to get going can use Guice as a way to achieve the same effect.
Aside from its pungent flavor, the strain exudes the outdoors in its aroma with overtones of pine, citrus, diesel, and chemicals. Gorilla Glue fans know the score. Thanks to a THC level of around 27% on average, Guice can pack a massive, diesely punch to unsuspecting consumers.
This makes it an ideal strain for those suffering from low energy levels, a lack of focus, depression, or migraines. Chronic pain and stress conditions can be managed with Guice due to its concentration of terpinolene, which is a relatively rare compound. It gives Guice the smell of herbs, pine, citrus, and flowers, as well as a somewhat surprising combination of lilac and nutmeg. Those who are looking for those smells and don’t mind the strain’s power may want to consider an afternoon with The Guice as a way to recharge and get moving.
