Tutti Frutti Total Score: 94
Tutti Frutti is one of the seemingly infinite number of strains in the legal cannabis market. Most strains have either an upper or downer effect. Typically the effects are not that different from strain to stain. There usually isn’t a necessary connection. This is not the case with Tutti Frutti. These specific buds were obtained from an Ann Arbor, MI medical dispensary, Liv Cafe N Wellness.
Tutti Frutti – Appearance
The buds were small and highly compact with lots of little orange stigma all over them. It’s a cute bud, in a way. There were visible frosty trichomes all over the flower and there wasn’t much leaf left. Mostly there were just potential seed sacs and their attached hairy stigmas. Small is sometimes beautiful and in this case it is. I deducted points for the size of the buds because I knew them to be from the bottom of the plant. The only other down side was the buds being a little dry. A day or two with a humidifier packet to 62% should solve that issue.
Appearance Score: 18/20
Tutti Frutti – Aroma
WOW! After grinding, the flower the scents were amazingly clear and strong. Highly scented with aromas of plum, cherry, and even orange. Not a lot of lemon (limonene) in the aroma, but super fruity and complex.
Aroma Score: 19/20
Tutti Frutti – Taste
The fruit aromas were strongly reflected in the taste. This isn’t typically the case with other strains, but the taste in my pipe before lighting up was kind of surprisingly close to the aroma. It tasted so good, I didn’t want to light it up. It was just that good.
Taste Score: 19/20
Tutti Frutti – Effect
This is a case of – ‘wait for it’ – as the high took a little bit to come on. And then bam, you’re very high. At first I waited a few minutes and nothing happened. I decided to take another puff. Then at about the 15 minute mark, it came in a heady rush that went to a certain level, and hung on for the first hour. And that was only two puffs, about 15 minutes apart. It was potent cannabis. I never looked at the THC content percent because I don’t believe it’s relevant. but going back to the Liv site, I noted it was listed as a hybrid, but there was no THC content on the page.
After about 2 hours, came the surprise; For the first 1 1/2 to 2 hours of the effect was very sativa like. I got a lot of work done, like cleaning the kitchen. After about 2 hours, I got very sleepy. This must have been the ‘indica’ part of the ride. I was already in the sack and planning on consuming a little indica to sleep. But, I didn’t need it. Tutti frutti put me in a very somnolent state and I slept like a baby all night. Sweet. The sativa buzz wasn’t my favorite…I only come across that about once a year, but it was really nice and creative and the latter part of the buzz was really nice and sleepy. Because of the sativa/indica effects, this was a 2 for 1 deal.
Effect Score: 18/20
Tutti Frutti Summary
Tutti Frutti is a strain well worth seeking out if you want something that can propel you through an evening into the sleepy zone of relaxation and rest. I don’t believe I’ve ever had any bud before that had this many strong effects. I liked it a lot. A whole lot. Given this strain’s immense complexities and strong effects, this flower is easily worth a pretty high score.
