K2: characteristics, fragrance and taste.
The flowers of K2 stand out with a very dense and compact structure that is expected from a predominantly indica variety. These inflorescences have a structure composed of pistils and leaves, covered with resin and tightly rolled together. The flowers are presented with a shade of bright green crossed by deep orange pistils. Translucent white trichomes (probably handed down from the mother variety White Widow) cover the inner and outer cracks of the flowers, giving them a very resinous texture. The buds have a very compact feel. When properly cared for, the buds give off a intense, woody aroma with a light note of lemon. Breaking or grinding the buds yields some aromatic notes strongly reminiscent of Skunk. Its flavor is basically intense.
