About Recon Strain
Recon (or ReCon) is a robust indica-leaning hybrid that provides an effective way to kick back and unwind. ReCon’s name refers in part to its genetics — it is descended from powerhouse hybrid LA Confidential. Cannadential is its other parent strain, imparting some aromatic funk. Recon is the brainchild of DNA Genetics, the creator of strains like Holy Grail and Chocolope. Sure to impress cannabis newbies and veterans alike, Recon’s sedative effects are said to last longer than average. This bud’s psychoactivity has been quantified at between 13% and 23% THC.
Recon’s flowers tend toward the smaller side and cling together in dense, popcorn-like formations. The buds are rounded and have the densely-packed structure most often association with indicas. The mossy green leaves curl tightly inward toward their central stems and are threaded through with dark, rust-colored hairs (which are actually pistils, structure meant to catch pollen from fertilizing male plants). Finally, blanket of icy white trichomes cover the inner and outer surfaces of these dense flowers, making them very sticky and difficult to break apart without a quality grinder.
On initial inspection, Recon’s flowers hit the nose with the sharp scent of pepper and cloves. Examining the buds more closely reveals an underlying sweetness that verges on a dank, almost fermented musk. Meanwhile, grinding up or breaking open these tight buds yields subtle herbal notes. When Recon is combusted in a pipe or a joint, it gives off a harsh, acrid smoke that can irritate the smoker’s eyes or sinuses. This thick, rich smoke tastes sweet and hashy on the exhale.
