    Olson's Raw

    Hey brothers,

    This is freshly color cured Olson 68, being boxed up to wait for its slowpoke tabacum cousins to catch up with it for a full kiln load.

    And this is the leaf fragments that broke off while I was boxing them,
    ground up with a few grains of salt in the snuff mill(magic bullet coffee grinder)
    and toasted at 250*F for 20 minutes

    Very delicate floral flavor, gently transitioning to toasted cocoa.

    Not pictured is the initial intense head pressure, and racing pulse. Post nasal drip is less harsh than Chef Daniel's Acadia snuff.

    Ten minutes in with no additional bump, the Nic hit is not abating in the slightest. Rather, it is building.

    Not bad for 12 days post harvest.

    If you like it as is dry some more stat, it'll decrease in potency here on out.

    I take expensive pills to prevent head pressure.

    Im pretty sure that plant wasn't topped. I have a full hand of leaf still curing that was topped early and picked 70 days after, and a pile of leaf that was 45 days post topping.

    Very interesting to see this. I have wondering about how Olson68 would turn out

    Stayed up all night staring at the ceiling. Took another dose early this AM.
    Better than coffee.

    I'm kicking myself for not segregating the leaf by plant/topping status. I feel like I'm playing Russian Roulette; I'm going to grind up the supercharged leaf and get cannoned into a headspinning spiritual experience.

    I left this open to the air all last week, and took another toot this morning before my commute. It has mellowed more.

    Take 2. All yellow or yellow-brown leaf from the second batch of pile cured Olson, ground fine. A blatant ripoff of SmokesAhoy's Olson snuff, minus the alkali, which will be added after my next taste test tomorrow morning.
