Donkey Butter stands out immediately medium to large-sized buds that cling together in solid, conical formations. The leaves are a deep hue of green, with some phenotypes even boasting parts of purple. Furthermore, Donkey Butter’s flowers are more colourful by corkscrewed orange pistils and icy, translucent trichomes. The inner structure of these flowers has a dense composition more characteristic of Indica varieties, with broad, curly leaves.
Appearance & Aroma
When optimally cured, flowers of Donkey Butter have a gamey, earthy aroma. Another whiff may also pick up on some woodsy, pine-like tones. Grinding or breaking apart these dense buds can reveal more of a potent, gasoline-like smell, likely passed on from grandparent strain Gorilla Glue. When it’s burnt in a joint or a pipe, Donkey Butter can give off an acrid, eye-watering vapour that may be somewhat harsh on the lungs. This thick smoke has a sharp flavour on the exhale with some faint herbal traces.
Effects & Benefits
As with many Indica leaning strains, Donkey Butter has a high that mounts gradually. Several moments after coughing on its heavy smoke, users start to feel head-focused feelings like a constricted sensation near the temples or some flushing in the cheeks. Ultimately, these bizarre tics die down, letting smokers become mindful of some distinct changes in cognition. Ideas may progress more quickly than usual and seem to have a renewed kind of intensity. Likewise, users may begin to make free connections or group their ideas into categories. This cerebral edge can support work on open-ended artistic tasks or brainstorming sessions. Donkey Butter might even cause trippy sensory distortions in the right set and setting like a flattening of optical depth perspective or an uncanny sensation of time dilation. Those so inclined can maximize this psychedelic mood by indulging in moody music or a visually dynamic film.
Within almost an hour (or quicker, if intake is increased), Donkey Butter’s body high starts to set in. Smokers who are out and about might suddenly feel weighed down and tired and may want to make a mad dash for their home. Meanwhile, those already chilling in cozy surroundings can begin to feel as if they’re sinking into the furniture. Indeed, as this stoney sensation heightens, it may undo much of the strain’s initial cognitive stimulation, leaving users able to do little more than binge-watch, snack, or have a snooze. Due to its eventual descent into sedation, Donkey Butter is advised to use afternoon through evening.
Donkey Butter’s gradual, primarily sleepy effects can also benefit medical cannabis patients. Its happy, upbeat spirit can temporarily relieve stress, depression, anxiety, and PTSD symptoms. This Indica may also eliminate physical pain, whether brief due to injury or inflammation or chronic illnesses like fibromyalgia or COPD. Also, Donkey Butter’s tendency to induce the munchies can function as an appetite stimulant for those dealing with digestive conditions or invasive treatments like chemotherapy. In higher doses and relaxed circumstances, donkey Butter might even be an antidote to insomnia. Because it has a low risk of disordered, paranoid thought, this strain is suitable for patients prone to panic or with low THC tolerance.
