So, if you're after something that relaxes you but at the same time makes you very happy and energized, this one might fit the bill. It does tend to make consumers sleepy, though, so it might be a good idea to try some first to see how it affects you.

In small doses, it can prove to be a good relaxing strain to smoke during slow days when you don't have to do much. Some side effects that can be experienced with this one include dry eyes and paranoia.

Aroma and Taste

The general flavor profile you will notice right away is quite fruity. Sky Pilot has a sweet flavor as well as aroma, created by the combination of Humulene, Myrcene, Bisabolol, and Caryophyllene. These terpenes work in the following way to generate sweet and fruity notes:

  • Humulene - adds the creaminess of butter.
  • Myrcene - complements Humulene but also adds notes of grapefruit and cheese.
  • Bisabolol - adds a strong kick of grapefruit.
  • Caryophyllene - complements Bisabolol but also adds to the cheesy notes.

The resulting flavor is a mixture of sweet and sour grapefruit and savory notes of cheese and butter.

Growing Information
