Dr. Who typically has small to medium-sized buds that hold a dense and heavy structure, typical of indicas. It is distinguished by earthy green leaves that are shot through with a vibrant shade of purple. Almost all phenotypes of Dr. Who show these purple hues, which are the result of high concentrations of anthocyanin pigments stimulated by unusually cold weather during the growing process. Trichomes dust the surfaces of the flowers and are also visible on the insides of buds if they’re broken open — in all, Dr. Who is very sticky when properly cured. The primary smell of this strain is dank and reminiscent of wet earth. There are also some traces of sour lemon and other tropical fruits lingering underneath. When combusted, the flowers have a harsh smoke which can induce heavy coughing and can sting the sinuses. On the exhale, this smoke has a notably sweet and tangy taste. Interestingly, not all phenotypes of Dr. Who will smell or taste like grape, as the pigments that dictate this strain’s color do not have an effect on its flavor.
