Colorado’s cannabis and craft-beer industries are sometimes in contrast, however whereas they may boast comparable demographics, the 2 companies are very completely different in a number of vital methods. As an example, not like Colorado liquor shops, which regularly are state-centric of their craft-beer choices, Colorado dispensaries typically appear to favor California genetics over strains that bought their begin regionally. So it’s all the time good to see a hometown pressure, comparable to Bear Dance, get some industrial love in Denver.
A cross of Snowcap and Suge Pure Kush by Colorado breeder 303 Seeds, Bear Dance is often thought-about a daytime pressure or perhaps a near-hybrid by dispensaries, but it surely’s nearly all the time a sedative excessive for me. The pressure’s fruity, tacky notes are made for an after-dinner smoke, and the results are sufficiently calming and euphoric to loosen up a drained, full physique.
Most industrial variations of Bear Dance carry a candy funk, with heavy notes of cheese and chocolate and a contact of lemon. Nevertheless, homegrown variations can get a lot funkier and fruitier and darker in colour, displaying the variety in phenotypes available on the market.
Due to its reputation amongst dispensary and wholesale grows alike, Bear Dance is simple to search out in Colorado. We’ve seen it at Buddy Boy, the Dab by Subsequent Harvest, DANK, Euflora, Ganja Gourmand, Inexperienced Dragon, Groundswell, the Joint, Type Love, the Lodge, LoDo Wellness Heart, Magnolia Street, RiNo Provide Co., Rocky Street, Smokin Gun Apothecary, the Stone and Tetra Hydro Heart, and lots extra in all probability inventory it as effectively, given the wholesale operations of Type Love, Silverpeak and elsewhere. My favourite reduce comes from Type Love, which additionally sells clones of Bear Dance on the dispensary so you possibly can develop that funky delight at house.
Seems to be: Though its segmented buds could make the pressure look unfastened, Bear Dance’s calyxes can get fairly dense. The pressure’s spherical and cone-shaped buds can develop into extraordinarily lime-green, with orange calyxes and plump, frosty trichomes which might be good for extraction.
Scent: Floral, bitter and funky with a touch of berries, Bear Dance additionally carries some spicy notes — however that fruit-cheese-vanilla melody makes it arduous to note. I’ve additionally smelled candy notes of chocolate, pine and lemon in industrial cuts of Bear Dance.
Taste: Bear Dance is understood for candy, floral and creamy flavors that may carry a bitter lemon twist on the finish. These creamy notes and hints of lavender and citrus give Bear Dance a tacky funk, adopted by delicate tastes of blended berries.
Results: Don’t let a dispensary’s sativa designation trick you into smoking Bear Dance earlier than a exercise. The excessive is initially uplifting and euphoric, however that vitality shortly fades, even when the happiness and giggles don’t. Medical sufferers have used Bear Dance for psychological anguish and insomnia, in addition to minor ache.
Residence grower’s take: “This shit actually doubled in peak over the span of a couple of week throughout flower. It additionally took seventy days to reap, which is method too lengthy for my style. That being mentioned, the odor and taste had been nearly value all of the topping and upkeep it took — nearly. It’s simply an excessive amount of work in comparison with different strains, even when it does style good.”
Breeder’s take (by way of 303 Seeds): “The feminine for this challenge was initially regarded as a singular reduce of Durban Poison, resulting from its sativa nature and lemon zest terpene profile, however was later recognized as Snowcap by a number of others holding the identical chopping. … The lemon/vanilla/menthol terpene profile of the Snowcap is unimaginable and might dominate even the skunkiest of rooms with ease. Nice manufacturing for a sativa pressure, with a end of about 9 weeks. A pairing with the Pure Kush/Uzbekistani Hashplant male places the facility of the Bear in your fingers. Large, bushy, snow-covered beast-sized buds with the souls of tropical butterflies. … Anticipate an honest stretch on nearly all of phenotypes, with a ending time of 9 to 10 weeks.”
