The nuggets are a dark and light green, producing beautiful contrasts. Then there is the white, powdery trichomes containing much of the THC, covering the nuggets like a powdered donut. The orange pistils provide a psychedelic contrast to the green and white of the flower buds and trichomes. The fragrance and taste of Holy Grail is very much natural, like any Kush.
