Russian Assassin, also known as Russian Assassin OG, is an indica-dominant hybrid that crosses Skywalker, Lemon OG Kush, and Headband. The resulting buds are large, chunky, and covered in trichomes with dark red pistils throughout. Russian Assassin’s piney fragrance shifts to a minty flavor on exhale and produces a rush of tingly cerebral activity that is felt immediately before giving way to a powerful, relaxing body buzz.
“No sneaking up on you with this baby. Instantaneous mind melt. Rushes of confusion and thought lock. Once again an Indica strain providing strong sedation effects relieving body fatigue and pain. Super potent flavors tasting like a chemical pine sol mixed with skunky aftertaste. I personally didn't get any mint tastes or aromas, but the flavors I did taste were great and strong.
“Ngl this shit got me soaring like an eagle. Not the greatest taste in the world, very earthy taste. The high outweighs the taste by farrrrr! If you don’t mind a little dirtier taste and want to be as high as the NASA space station then this strain is for you”
