HPG13 is sometimes called PG-13 and Parental Guidance. This strain is the result of crossing the rare HP-13 with G-13 resulting in a potent indica-dominate flower.
Ritual’s HPG13 buds are described as dense, solid and trichome covered with green and purple tones throughout. This strain is known for a light coffee scent which is activated by their curing process. When the buds are squeezed then tend to release a slightly skunky, fruity aroma.
So how does HPG13 from Ritual smoke?
Check our review, rating and photos below.
The product arrived from Ritual in an industry standard mid size plastic bag with resealable top. Right after we opened the bag the smell was instant and strong – we were overcome by the distinct aroma of swedish berries candy. Each time we breathed in the bud smelled sweeter and sweeter.
Rituals HPG13 looks great. The buds appear like compressed bales of speckled green hay that are fluffy on the outside but very dense on the inside. Combine this with the fiery orange hairs which are actually hard to see due to a very thick layer of frosty trichomes. The general first impression actually reminded us of Citizen Stash’s Stonewall.
Given how HPG13 smelled we kinda expected a similar profile for it’s flavour. But that sweet berry aroma entirely disappears behind the strong flavour profile of a herbally pine. Definitely not what was expected however since it was not overpowering we found it quite enjoyed.
HPG13 from Ritual is a solid product. It delivers a very strong almost couch-lock body buzz with a thick mental cloud which is enough to give anyone difficulty with complex or high attention activities. HPG13 might be too strong if you have a low tolerance for THC, however experienced smokers may find this one perfect for the end of the day.
