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.

Overall: 🌲🌲🌲🌱/5

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.

#GoodBuds #flower goodbuds-mangotaffie-cover1

The Look

The folks at Good Buds have done it again with Mango Taffie.

These buds look delectable. It was (almost) a shame to grind them up.

Overall a very similar visual experience to Good Buds' Sapphire OG and I don't have any complaints.

No leaf. No unnecessary stem.

goodbuds-mangotaffie-thelook

The Smell

A nostril expanding zestiness complements #sweet and #fruity aromas.

Nothing overtly mango-y, but compared to the Sapphire OG's funkadelic #cheesiness, this is on the other end of the olfactory spectrum.

It's light and bright while also retaining a pungent dankness.

No room in your house will be safe from the smell of these flowers when crushed in a grinder.

It'll have your place smelling like the Bomb.

goodbuds-mangotaffie-thesmells

The Flava

I was waiting for the “taffie” to show up at some point, and it does when you set it on fire!

It's got an interesting salty flavour to it that I'd describe as “thick,” and it burns great in a J from end to end.

goodbuds-mangotaffie-nugget

The Feel

No complaints here.

It feels pretty sticky despite being packed in November of last year.

Good bud density and humidity levels remained acceptable thanks to the tight-ass seal on the glass jar.

goodbuds-mangotaffie-macro

The Experience

Apart from the steep price tag ($50-ish bucks after-tax), you really can't go wrong with Good Buds' good buds, it seems.

There are whispers of a price-drop happening down the line, and I would be happy to see that because more people should be smoking these buds over basically anything else.

It's a pleasure to roll up, it tastes and smells nice, and it's a buy, even at current prices.

coast-mountain-bc-glue-show-bud #cannabiscommunity #flower #BCcraft

The Look

I think this is the first time ever I've bought an eighth, and it was mostly one, bud. ONE BUD! Congrats. You've attained the unattainable.

Looks great! Very frosty ❄️ dense, yet spongy.

The buds definitely seem like they were handled with care.

coast-mountain-bc-glue-macro

The Smell

Super pungent aromas from these buds.

I immediately got a wave of sour lemons and then doused by acidic fuel-y goodness.

Smells fresh. Not a blade of dry grass in sight.

Considering this bud was packed in August 2020, I'm pretty impressed.

coast-mountain-bc-glue-topdown

The Flava

Sweet and sour. Earthy and a bit floral.

It Burned really lovely in a J and didn't go out halfway through.

Very appealing taste.

The Feel

The buds feel sticky and spongy.

Great density and fluffs out really nicely in the grinder.

You know when bud is just at that absolutely perfect consistency, and it makes rolling a number a super pleasurable experience?

It's like that.

coast-mountain-bc-glue-bud

The Experience

I think I paid about 40-something bucks for this eighth, which I'd consider to be pretty high. However, the quality of the flowers definitely made it worth it to drop the extra 10-15 bucks.

Let's put it this way if I could pick some of this #flower up by the QP at legacy market prices. I'd do it.

The seal on the container was epic. Took a pair of car keys to break into the terpy wonderland contained within.

Significant #glue effects. Find a couch, kickback. You deserve it.

Overall: 🌲🌲🌲🌲/5 (same thing as last couple reviews... bring that price down a smidge, get that 5th tree, and become the first 5-tree review.)

#hash #cannabiscommunity #moodring moodring-leg-hash

The Look

The first time I bought this hash, the Mood Ring folks already portioned it into two equal square pieces.

On the two other occasions, it was a single 1-gram piece which, for some reason, I prefer.

Once through the childproof ziplock packaging, you'll find the hash contained within a regular ol' mini baggie. Nice and convenient.

The #legacyhash is a beautiful bright golden colour with—slight green tint.

moodring-leg-hash-packaging

The Smell

Subtle spiciness. Not overly overpowering. Didn't rock my world.

The Flava

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

Mostly mild earthy and spicy flavours.

Nothing mind-blowing, but it tastes as a classic bubble hash should, and it burns nicely.

moodring-leg-hash-stacked

The Feel

I'm going to assume this is a bubble hash based on the feel of it.

At first sight, I thought it would be hard and crispy to the touch; that was not the case. There have been a couple of other hash products I've tried that were almost too hard to crumble without significant effort or scissors.

The consistency of Mood Ring's Legacy Hashish is actually fantastic! Feels a bit like an underbaked shortbread cookie.

It is effortless to break off a little chunk with your fingers and crumble into a J without spillage or wastage.

moogring-leg-hash-macro

The Experience

Mood Ring's Legacy Hashish provides an enjoyable experience overall that comes in at an acceptable price point (around $45 a gram).

It is handy, use-able, and portable.

My biggest gripe with some of the other hash products out there is the super-inconvenient packaging.

For example, the Top Leaf bubble hash includes a little jar... but no lid! Crazy.

Significant #painreduction effects throughout the day.

good-buds-sapphire-og-macro #flower #review #cannabiscommunity #goodbuds

The Look

Beautiful, well-manicured buds that glisten with frosty trichomes.

There's an acceptable amount of stem and no leaf.

It looks as though Good Buds handled their buds with care during the entire cultivation and harvest process.

goodbuds-sapphire-og-supermacro

The Smell

Sapphire OG has an attractive aroma that I'd describe as very pungent.

When the jar is cracked open, you get a heavy hit of pine and an appealing earthiness I'd liken to cacao powder crossed with parmesan cheese.

Another nosedive into the jar (yes, it's a glass jar) would reveal a complex blend of zesty citrus fruits and fancy flowers.

Like enjoying a fresh citrus fruit for breakfast while admiring the bouquet, you bought for your significant other on Valentine's Day in the same room as you cooked last night's spaghetti dinner.

goodbuds-sapphire-og-bright

The Flava

Fresh pine for miles and miles and miles. Followed by the kushy

It really opens up the airways—no coughing or harshness.

The Feel

The buds feel sticky and fresh. Dense, but not rock hard.

Hats off to the dry/cure team over at #GoodBuds.

goodbuds-sapphire-og-macro 2

The Experience

A premium price tag (around $45-50) comes with a premium flower product that left me happy and relaxed.

The glass jar's design is pretty lovely too, albeit a little heavy to carry around in your jacket pocket. The tight seal between the jar and the peel-back kept the buds fresh.

Significant #relaxation effects, but it didn't make me tired or groggy.

Overall: 🌲🌲🌲🌲/5 (bring that price down a smidge, get that 5th tree, and become the first 5-tree review.)
