As a dry herb product, the most notable feature about Dragon Fruit is the unique physical characteristics that it displays. The leaf color is a dark grape-purple that almost appears black at first glance. With closer inspection, one can see splashes of green radiating from the base of the Dragon Fruit bud. This cultivar has brightly colored pistils that contrast sharply against the structure of this bud. The pistils display a lively apricot-orange and are spread in clusters throughout the structure of this herb. Dragon Fruit has tiny sugar-like trichomes that appear as dust that has been sprinkled lightly across its surface. Something of note –because of the color of this cultivar, the ground material will appear similar to that of already-vaped product. This can make it difficult to detect when the herb is all used up in your vaporizer.
What does it smell like?
Dragon Fruit has a lively aromatic fragrance that is soothing and sweet. Upon opening the container, you will experience a gentle, predominantly berry blend that is followed by earth-like undertones.
