Mule Fuel (by: Potent Planet)
I remember my first encounter with Mule Fuel like it was yesterday. It was a week after my first run in with Potent Planet’s Meat Breath. From that moment on I was officially hooked and definitely became a passenger on the Potent Planet bandwagon. I can recall going to events and asking my friends about Potent Planet and not a single one of them had even heard of that name. This was a time when new brands were a rare sight to see here in Arizona, so it was really no surprise they weren’t known. Just like the Meat Breath, the Mule Fuel left a lasting impression on me, which is the reason I have been chasing these strains for years. As I had hoped, my persistence paid off, and I was reunited with Mule Fuel. Sooo, let’s talk about it!
Let’s start with her parents; Mule Fuel comes from a very strong family line. The product of GMO (Chem D x Forum Cut GSC) and Mendo Montage aka Lurch (Mendo Purps x Crystal Locomotive), it’s no wonder Mule Fuel looks and smells the way it does. In the jar it smelled more like GMO than GMO itself. The buds were almost impossible to remove from my fingers as I took them out of the jar. The moment I broke them down, there was an explosion of meaty terps that flooded the room. The last thing I smelled with terps this strong was the GMO rosin from Solventless Refinery. Without a doubt, Mule Fuel earned a 5 out of 5 in the area of smell.
I don’t think I have ever rolled a blunt faster than I did that one; my excitement and anticipation were through the roof. Based on the smell and how fresh these buds were, I was expecting a mouthful of terps. Other than losing a lung, I didn’t get much as I sparked the blunt. After some time, I started to notice very subtle hints of sweetness. It wasn’t until I was about half way through the blunt when I started to notice a very faint hint of GMO, which was a real disappointment. I got the complete opposite of what I was hoping for; what I thought was going to be a mouth full of garlic and meaty dankness turned out to be mostly airy, very subtle hints of any flavor. In the area of flavor, I unfortunately couldn’t score this strain anything higher than a 3 out of 5.
The saving grace: what Mule Fuel lacked in flavor definitely was made up for in the high. If you are someone who cares about the numbers, this strain tested at 36% total in THC, and I felt every bit of it. Usually, I say “don’t worry about the number”; but since they matter to many, I want to at least provide that information for those who seek it. Even though I wasn’t getting much from the terps at the midway mark, it felt as if I had smoked an entire blunt and then some. I was high as a kite at this point and had to talk myself into finishing this blunt. I have never before wanted to put a blunt out due to it being ridiculously potent, but if I did, it would have been this one. I didn’t, however, because well, momma didn’t raise a quitter. I should have, though, because by the time I finished, I forgot I was sitting in the garage. I felt as if my head had been taken off my body and placed…I don’t know where, but it sure wasn’t with the rest of me. Mule Fule’s high deserves a 5 out of 5, helping it earn the Gas Pass stamp of approval.
