Strain Review: Albert Walker


Indica-Dominant Hybrid

Sometimes you stumble down a rabbit hole and find yourself somewhere fantastic and foreign, forgetting what you were even chasing in the first place. Especially after smoking Albert Walker—or researching it.

This exquisite strain is known for its overwhelming, lemony-skunk terpenes and orange-red hairs set atop dense, crystalline trichomes. The high comes on strong and energizing, but then shifts gears to a relaxing, euphoric, long-lasting ride.

It’s believed to be a descendant of Afghan Skunk—and from the Pacific Northwest, but really it’s anyone’s guess. With a 60:40 indica to sativa ratio, and THC levels around 15%, Albert Walker is great for lifting spirits, helping with anxiety, and treating insomnia.

Albert Walker is sold almost exclusively on the West Coast, so we should count ourselves lucky to have access to this classic—some would say perfect—strain.

Strain History

Shrouded in mystery, little is known about this strain’s origins, other than it was a favorite at the Grateful Dead tours of the 80’s and 90’s. As the story goes, the first buds were circulated among roadies by a man in a walker—hence the name.

Held close by this tight-knit group of friends, someone leaked clones to the public in the early 2000’s—and the rest, as they say, is a bright future for Pacific Northwest cannabis.

Take it from the Dead Heads, Albert Walker is an American classic (even if it does have Afghani roots!). If you want to get good and high, for a good long time, this is the strain for you.
