Dr. Walker’s Daze is a pure sativa three-way cross created by the breeder formally known as Moonshine Man, but currently known as Scott of Rare Dankness Seeds. Its genetics consist first of a cross between Albert Walker (a highly-coveted Pacific Northwest strain) and Medicine Man, which created the Dr. Walker strain. Then Dr. Walker was crossed with Daze, a 100-day phenotype of Soma Seed’s 99 Amnesia Haze (Amnesia Haze/Amnesia Haze/Neville’s Haze). Only a few seeds were ever produced from this sativa-dominant threesome, and somewhere around the end of 2006, they went on auction to the highest bidder. The final 10-pack of seeds was bought for a whopping-but-worth-it $800 on a seed-auction website.
Dr. Walker’s Daze was destined to remain in obscurity, an elite strain reserved for the most seasoned of chronnoisseurs, until one retiring pot enthusiast passed his collection on to a talented and well-respected grower. This grower, known as Sirius Starboy, undertook the painstaking process of growing the plant from seed. 12 weeks later, Dr. Walker’s Daze was resurrected.
DW Daze is a natural anti-depressant and an instant mood enhancer. Whatever your initial frame of mind, puff, puff, pass and you’ll be giddy with giggles, stricken with a case of the warm fuzzies, basking in the sunshine of euphoria. Boasting a distinctly energetic effect, this uplifting sativa strain turns rainy days into rainbows. You’ll take on even the most mundane activity with happy alertness. And you’ll have the energy and motivation to actually do what you planned that day. Smoke it when you have the freedom to just hang out and enjoy the high and you’ll quickly find you have a smile on your face for reasons you can’t quite remember.
The smell: A distinctive haze smell, accented with cacao, cinnamon, and vanilla, enraptures the nose, leaving behind a spicy dark chocolate with a hint of pepper in the after-scent.
The dry hit: A deep, rich taste highlighted by a fruity sweetness, a certain spiciness, and, again, that hint of pepper, tease your taste buds on the pre-flame toke. You may notice a faint menthol tingle lingering on the tongue.
The flavor: Completely unique, Dr. Walker’s Daze boasts a classic haze flavor that gives way to mango and a taste of sweet tropical fruit, underscored with a subtle spiciness that leaves a thick, mouth-watering coat on the tongue.
The high: DW Daze creates a full-bodied high whose effect is uplifting, alert, and euphoric. I found myself overcome with a feeling of warm coziness that seemed to radiate from within and which manifested as uncontrollable giggles.
The word: Dr. Walker’s Daze is the kind of rare strain you’re more likely to find in some chronnoisseur’s wicked head stash than anywhere for sale. But wherever you find it, it’s sure to be a preferred smoke of even the most discriminating pot snob.
