calibuddacheese1 #flower #CALI

This CALI flower disappeared almost faster than I could take photos or write any detailed notes. Consequently, this review is a little sparse.

The Look

Looks like it was hand-trimmed, and the results are a good-looking flower product.

calibbc2

The Smell

Nostrils will be met with a fantastic fruity aroma that is complemented by a nose-scrunching cheesy finish.

Reminds me of a charcuterie board sitting beside a bowl of chopped papaya and mango.

Overall, quite complex with many layers to the smell, which made for a pleasant olfactory experience.

calibbc3

The Flava

Tastes great!

Smokes nice and didn't make me cough (until I paired it with the PuraVida honey oil).

You get a healthy dollop of sweet fruit and funk on the inhale and exhale.

Very agreeable flavour overall.

calibbcpackage

The Feel

The packaging contained an Integra humidity pack that kept the buds feeling pretty fresh.

The flowers are dense but not overly sticky.

calibbcpack2

The Experience

This is not a cheap product. I paid around $45-something for the eighth.

With that said, after I finished the first eighth, I went back and bought another one.

It is still too expensive for daily use, but it would make a nice gift for special occasions or something to pick up when you're feeling like a treat.

Overall: 🌲🌲🌲🌲/5 (gets trees for the look, taste, feel and aroma, but the price is too high)

puravidahoney4 #honeyoil #puravida #concentrates

The Look

Golden honey colour.

Clean and clear.

puravidahoney2

The Smell

Smells sweet yet dank and earthy with some lavender floral notes.

The chap at the shop told me this was extracted from Pink Kush.

I believe him.

puravidahoney3

The Flava

This oil tastes really fantastic.

It made me cough quite a bit because the smoke was thick.

Adds a great deep, dark floral flavour to J's (I shmeared the oil on OCB papers).

I filled the J with some Big Budda Cheese from CALI. It paired well with the cheesy yet fruity and funky flavour of the flowers.

Pretty overpowering, actually. Mostly all I could taste was the oil.

puravidahoney5

The Feel

Obviously, it was incredibly sticky.

Thankfully the little glass applicator made it easy to apply to papers without ripping them.

You don't want to touch this stuff with your fingers, or you'll be able to climb walls like Spiderman.

In fact, if you smoke a little too much of this stuff, you'll probably think you're Spiderman as well.

puravidahoneypackaging

The Experience

It's great.

Honestly, I have almost no complaints here.

It was a reasonable price for 1 gram. I think I paid about $40 for the gram, but I lost the receipt as usual. It lasted me a pretty long time to boot.

It makes flower burn incredibly slowly in a J and therefore extends your session practically ten-fold.

The glass and metal applicator was a dream to work with compared to the plastic clicky applicator from the Original Stash honey oil.

Extremely #relaxing and #calming effects.

I'd save this oil for the evenings or weekends when you don't have anything else going on.

You'll definitely feel the effects right behind your eyes.

greenadequerkle2 #flower #sitkaweedworks #indica

The Look

Greenade's Querkle looks enticing.

The trim job is good, and there aren't any leaves or excessive amounts of stem.

The flower has a beautiful purple colour among the greenness. There are orange hairs throughout that are pretty prominent against the purple colouration.

greenadequerkle3

The Smell

Smells great!

I like how Greenade has listed the dominant terpenes on the back of their packaging. It gave me an idea of what to expect before I even opened the bag.

Greenade packed this particular package on November 16, 2020. So I wasn't expecting the flower inside to smell fresh.

However, opening the packaging releases a delightful lemony aroma complimented by dank, floral notes that linger in the area.

The smell is not sweet citrus, but rather more like the zest from a ripe lemon mixed with a few sprigs of crushed lavender flowers.

greenadequerkle4

The Flava

There are pronounced lemon flavours from the rolled flower.

It's an enjoyable puff.

Overall, very smooth flavours that didn't cause any coughing.

packagingquerkle

The Feel

Even though Greenade packed this bud quite a while ago, it wasn't too dry.

The buds were too dry to be sticky but retained enough moisture when ground up to make for an enjoyable smoke.

I think there might have been a 2-way humidity pouch included inside. But I can't fully recall if this was just me thinking there should have been one included or if there was one in there.

greenadequerkle6

The Experience

Although I wish it were a bit fresher, I was pleasantly surprised by this Querkle. It burns nice and slow, leaving behind white ash.

The flower tested at around 20% THC, and I'd say the effects matched what I'd expect from a twenty percent flower product.

A bit pricey for everyday use at around $40 bucks for an eighth, but great as a treat.

Overall, nice #chill and #relaxing effects. Suitable for the daytime in smaller amounts or the nighttime when you don't have to out and about.

Overall: 🌲🌲🌲/5 because it was packed last year and had lost some freshness.

shatter1 #extracts #shatter #hybrid

The Look

It looks like a sheet of golden amber.

Half expecting to see a tiny petrified bug from the late Cretaceous period.

shatter2

The Smell

Usually, I would say something like, “all extracts smell the same.” However, this particular shatter has a unique aroma to it.

Very spicy and peppery.

It definitely made me cough for a solid handful of seconds.

shatter3

The Flava

The aroma translates well into a spicy and peppery flavour.

I enjoyed the flavour more than I thought I would.

shatter4

The Feel

It feels.... shattery.

Didn't have any flex or bend in it—more of a snap.

shatter5

The Experience

This stuff is super potent.

I don't have a dab rig or anything like that, so I just plunked a chunk on the top of a bowl which worked nicely.

It definitely needs some water to cool it off!

The price was pretty reasonable at around 40 bucks a gram.

Intense #chill and #relaxing effects. Suitable for the nighttime.

tabletop-cover-1 #flower #tabletop #BZAM

The Look

No complaints here besides a few long stems that didn't get trimmed off.

Bright green colour with plenty of purple/blue throughout and some orange highlights from the hairs.

Most of the buds were well-manicured and visually appealing.

macro-tabletop-1

The Smell

Unlike the sour citrus that dominated Namaste's Ultra Sour, this Blue Lemon Thai has a sweet lemon aroma with some more profound earthy complexity.

It smells fresh and sweet, like sticking your head in a bucket of freshly picked lemons on the lemon farm where the lemon was picked.

Not overly intense, but definitely inviting and enjoyable.

macro-tabletop-2

The Flava

The pleasant smell didn't really translate into an excellent taste.

It's not unenjoyable by any means, but it lacks the sweetness I was hoping for.

Tasted a little meh.

tabletop-stems-1

The Feel

Buds were a bit dry to the touch. Not over-dried, but not... juicy (which is to be expected these days).

The buds felt fresh, and that would make sense as it was packed reasonably recently.

Not sticky to the touch, but they had a good density.

super-macro-tabletop-1

The Experience

I did enjoy this Tabletop product, and I wouldn't be embarrassed to crack this open in front of a good mate.

The effects were decent and relatively long-lasting.

For around $100 an oz, you can't go wrong considering the other options out there.

Pretty #chill and #relaxing effects without causing sleepiness. Suitable for the daytime or nighttime.

namaste-pile-4 #flower #namaste #ultrasour

The Look

Nothing but stems and popcorn.

Disappointing bag appeal for sure.

I think this bag was one of the last ones off the production line and got all the shwaggles floating around at the bottom of the barrel.

So many pieces of stem and sticks in amongst the buds that required sorting before use.

namaste-pile-2

The Smell

Aroma provides a bit of redemption with a decent amount of sour zest.

It sort of smells like an old lemon, but not in a bad way.

namaste-pile-3

The Flava

Pretty tasty and not nearly as atrocious as the look of it.

No harsh flavours or burning throat.

I got a hefty helping of airway expanding citrus notes, but nothing too complex.

namaste-pile-5

The Feel

Buds were kind of sticky.

Based on the look of it, you'd assume it was just a bunch of dried-out popcorn nuggets. However, they actually had a pretty decent feel to them.

Good density despite their less than appealing appearance.

namaste-pile-6

The Experience

I like this flower when it's done well.

This is a great cultivar, executed well, but the lack of a single bud bigger than my pinky fingernail was disappointing.

This stuff isn't cheap either (about $35 and eighth, I think).

Honestly, there should have been nothing but chunky nuggets in the package for that price.

The effects were decent.

Maybe next time Namaste... maybe next time.

Significant #uplifting and #energetic effects suitable for the daytimes or anytime, really.

cover-buds #flower #ness #BZAM

The Look

Looks great overall.

The buds are nice and frosty.

The trim is good.

The pictures I took don't do the flowers justice.

ness-lemon-berry-3

The Smell

Great zesty aroma.

Tons of sour citrus with a hint of sweetness.

The very potent aroma when the buds go through the grinder is superb.

macro-buds

The Flava

The zesti-ness (ha! get it?) acts like an anti-congestant.

I felt like it really opened up my airways.

There is a great zesty inhale, and it gets pretty sweet on the exhale.

It didn't make me cough and tasted great to the end of the J.

purple-buds

The Feel

Buds were well dried. Not over-dried.

Good springy sponginess.

ness-bud-macro-2

The Experience

I really enjoyed this -ness product.

I heard from others that their experiences weren't as positive as mine due to some buds burning pretty harshly.

I didn't experience any harsh buds or nasty flavours.

I would love to see this come in oz's because the eighth disappeared pretty quickly.

Significant #uplifting and #energetic effects suitable for the days or anytime, really.

sanrafael-ogchemdawg-cover #concentrates #sanrafael #liveresin

The Look

This stuff looks craaaaazy.

I'm not an avid high-potency concentrates guy, but I do enjoy the look of this live resin.

It reminds me of congealed honey oil.

sanrafael-ogchemdawg-thelook1

The Smell

Smells potently of OG Kush.

Bit of pine.

A pungent, earthy musk that is pretty noticeable in the air.

I like it.

sanrafael-ogchemdawg-thesmell

The Flava

Tastes great in the bowl mixed with some flower.

I assume you'd typically burn this in a dab rig, and the flavours would be isolated and prominent.

However, even mixed into some flowers, this live resin adds a piney awesomeness to a bowl.

It opens up your airways and cleans out any mucous that may be hiding in your face holes.

sanrafael-ogchemdawg-frontpack

The Feel

I didn't touch it with my fingers, but it crumbles nicely into a little ball when I scoop it up with a tiny spoon.

sanrafael-ogchemdawg-backpack

The Experience

This stuff will get you well baked.

Not a product I could use every day, nor throughout the day.

A little on the pricey side (around $45-50 bucks if I recall correctly). It lasts a long time, though, because you only need a tiny taste to get robust effects.

Significant #calming and #sleepy effects suitable for the evenings or weekends.

tantaluslabs-drysifthash-cover #concentrates #tantaluslabs #BCbud

The Look

It looks like something you would scrape out of your kief catcher.

Hash? Maybe.

It's more like powder.

Perfect for sprinkling on Js and on top of bowls.

The tube-style container makes it super convenient to whip out and top anything with a little kief.

tantaluslabs-drysift-thelook2

The Smell

Subtle earthy sweetness.

tantaluslabs-drysift-thesmell

The Flava

Tastes great on top of a bowl or sprinkled in a J.

However, because I added it to other things, it was hard to isolate the flavours.

Nothing mind-blowing, but it tastes pretty good, and it burns well.

tantaluslabs-drysift-flatnd

The Feel

Soft, powdery, and fine.

Definitely not something you'd want to spill because it would be hard to clean up.

tantaluslabs-drysift-macro

The Experience

Overall, I'm satisfied with this Tantalus Labs product.

The containers make it super easy to carry around in your pocket (or purse, or satchel).

I bought it on sale from Rise Cannabis in View Royal, and it was around $25 a gram (or something like that.)

Significant #relaxation effects throughout the day.

goodbuds-islandhash-cover #concentrates #goodbuds #BCbud

The Look

This hash looks like a tiny hockey puck.

Very well-formed compared to the Top Leaf Bubble Hash, which seemed carelessly sprayed into the jar.

Nice colour.

goodbuds-islandhash-2

The Smell

Smells #spicy and rich. Subtle aroma overall, but very pleasant.

goodbuds-islandhash-backlit

The Flava

The aroma translates well into a robust spicy flavour.

I was adding it as a bowl topper in the bong, so it's hard to give an exact breakdown of the subtleties that are most certainly there.

Adds a great flavour kick to otherwise mediocre flower products.

goodbuds-islandhash-packageback

The Feel

The hashy hockey puck is not rock hard.

It's pretty sticky and gooey when I first cracked the jar open. It became much more soft, malleable and crumbly after a day or two, which made it easy to add to Js or bowls without any intervention.

goodbuds-islandhash-packagefront

The Experience

Some of the best bubble hash I've sampled so far.

Overall: 🌲🌲🌲🌲/5
