Ohio Medical Marijuana Strain Review:
Hell's Bells by Farkas Farms
Bullseye Farms Takes You To Hell...
Review & Photos by: Randy Shaffer
Packaging: First Impressions
Hell’s Bells (or Hells Bells) by Bullseye Gardens is an indica strain cultivated by Farkas Farms out of Akron, Ohio. Packaging here is almost identical to Cherry Pie, another Farkas Farms cannabis strain. The pouch is …okay, but can lead to crushed buds, dry buds or stale buds, and isn’t the easiest to open for those with pain in their hands or fingers.
Thankfully, this specific pouch does a good job holding keeping air out, but my buds looked a little pressed in spots. Hopefully we’ll see Bullseye Gardens change things up in the near future.
Cannabis Look: Out of the Bottle
My 2.83 gram pouch of Hell’s Bells contained three larger nugs and two mid-sized nugs. There aren’t the densest buds to the touch, but they grind down pretty easily, and yield isn’t too bad.
Hells Bells is right! Up close, this indica flower has a beautiful swarm of orange and amber pistils shooting out like flames. The underside of the pine green leaves are splashed with a hint of lavender and deep purple. Trichomes are plentiful, and glass-like, but were falling off quite a bit — likely due to the pouch container.
This is a striking bud if only because of how playful and flame-like the calyx structures are here.
Smell Before Vaping
The fruity, herbal haze aroma of Hell’s Bells will hit you as soon as you crack open the pouch. I was actually quite shocked by the intense fumes on this one, which filled my photo studio in only a few minutes. There are subtle pine accents, as well as a touch of lemon and some funky cheese notes. Ultimately, I enjoyed how this one smelled, but found the palette a bit chaotic.
The Taste Test
I vaped this medical cannabis with an Arizer ExtremeQ vaporizer. I like to start my first bag at a lower temperature to open the terpenes, and work up to a higher temp to vaporize the cannabinoids.
Once vaped, Hell’s Bells releases an intense pine flavor that’s wonderfully accented by notes of lavender, cedar, oak and lemon. Seriously, this one was like a old time aftershave. I kept coming back for more, just so I could enjoy the refreshing, almost peppery pine aftertaste in my mouth.
Pair this strain with some black coffee or a barrel-aged whiskey for a truly rustic experience.
Medicinal Benefits and Side Effects I Noted
Note: The medicinal benefits noted in this strain profile are for educational purposes only, and are not a substitute for the advice of a medical practitioner or licensed budtender.
Hells Bells by Bullseye Gardens (aka Farkas Farms) is an indica strain. The 2.83 gram allotment I purchased contained cannabis with 22.4% THC and 0.00% CBD.
Hells Bells came highly recommended by both my budtender and a fellow medical marijuana patient who was visiting the dispensary at the same time I was. As always, thank you everyone for the recommendations!
Medicinally, this indica strain is designed to relax the body and couch-lock you if you vape ample amounts.
This strain starts off in the head with a strong wave of joyful euphoria. I wasn’t expecting this strain to linger so long with this sensation, but I found it to be a great flower for productivity and anxiety or depression relief.
As the head-heavy euphoria calms, the experience shifts to a more soothing body high — the kind that’s perfect for vegging out with a movie, or about an hour or so before bed. The effects of this relaxing sensation lasted quite a few hours, too. And was perfect in combination with some olive oil from Wellspring Fields.
Final Thoughts on Hell's Bells
Hell’s Bells is a soothing indica that’s perfect for late evenings, vegging out, or just as a pick-me-up from anxiety, stress or depression. It’s got a rustic pine flavor, a strong aroma and a nice headband effect that’s followed by relaxing body euphoria.
Please be aware: Percentages of THC, CBD and terpene profiles can vary greatly between cannabis harvests. This means that some strains profiled at 420oh.io will contain higher, exact or lower percentages of active chemical compounds when purchased at Ohio medical marijuana dispensaries during different harvest seasons.
For health enthusiasts seeking an enticing alternative to sugar or nut-based cannabis edibles, Wellspring Fields might just have what you’ve been looking for because this infused high THC Olive Oil is straight fire.
We take a look at a highly recommended strain — Do-Si-Dos #22 (Dosidos 22) by Buckeye Relief. This flower is a cross of Girl Scout Cookies and Face Off OG, and she tastes quite delightful! Find it how this flower hits.
