#flower #MTL #SageNSour #Diesel mtl-sagesour-4

The Look

One of the best-looking products on the market right now. Beautiful bright green flowers with long red hairs. It looks like they were treated well during the harvesting process, and there are zero extra stems or leaves present in the container. Bud size is impressive as well. A good mixture of larger and smaller buds, even in the smaller eighth format. Sparkly trichomes are very apparent.

mtl-sagesour-2

The Smell

You'll get a healthy dose of diesel aromas right off the bat before the floral/citrus notes set in. Smells absolutely fantastic! Layers of spicy diesel, lavender flowers and an abundance of sour citrus.

mtl-sagesour-macro

The Flava

Sweet, diesel flavours are most apparent. It's very smooth, and it burns perfectly without extinguishing itself. Nice white ash and no harsh coughing or throat burn. Super enjoyable and leaves you with a desire to pick up another jar.

mtl-sagesour-5

The Feel

Spongy, not dry. Significant humidity despite being packed in June. Not overly sticky, but there's a nice density to the buds, so they don't just crumble in your hands or leave a pile of dust in the grinder.

mtl-sagesour-1

The Experience

This flower by MTL is one of my favourite products in the shop right now. The effects are very energizing and clear-headed, making it perfect for daytime activities like cleaning the house or hiking. I've been a repeat customer a few times over now, and I'd happily pick up another jar the next time I'm at the shop, especially now that MTL has released a larger 14-gram container.

Overall: 🌲🌲🌲🌲🌱/5

#flower #OGEN #FreshlyBaked76 ogenfbcover

The Look

These buds are frosty and heavily laden with trichomes. Beautiful light green colour. It looks like the folks at OGEN treated them with care during the harvesting process. There are no extra pieces of stem or leaf for me to complain about 😅.

ogenfbmacro

The Smell

The buds emanate a strong and pleasantly fragrant aroma and are reminiscent of Pinesol and camping gas. Excellent any way you grind it. It reminds me of the dark, earthy smell of a wet campsite mixed with the camping gas you accidentally spilled while trying to fill up your camping stove.

ogenfb2

The Flava

Spot on flavour profile that leans hard on the pungent gas and camping fuel aromas with an earthy finish. 100 % enjoyable. It burns nice and clean, leaving white ash. Zero harshness, although the flavour is pretty heavy and did make me cough a bit compared to the Lemon Z.

ogen-fb-55

The Feel

Perfect texture. Not much else to say here. The flowers are dense and subtly squishy but too much so to bust effectively with fingers. A grinder is a must to unlock the fluffiness. Not dry in the slightest.

ogen-fb76-package

The Experience

Excellent product from OGEN right here. I'm surprised it's taken me so long to review them. I am impressed with the smell and the flavours. At around $40 bucks after tax, it's pretty affordable too. It hits hard behind the eyes and provides very relaxing effects without causing any drowsiness (at least in my opinion). I would definitely rebuy this product, no question.

#flower #OGEN #LemonZ macro-lemonz-ogen

The Look

The container was filled with tight little nuggets that looked pretty well manicured.

No leaf or stem to spoil the visuals.

The largest bud in the jar was about the size of a quarter. Size I'd define as “workable.”

ogen-lz-buds-1

The Smell

The crazy ripe banana aromas caught me off guard!

Not sure if I've smelled anything quite as engaging in a long while.

It was like crushing up a slightly over-ripe banana and adding a squeeze of some sweet lemon juice.

Very appealing to the olfactory system and a nice change from the kush/cookies aromas that are so abundant these days.

Ogen-lz-buds-2

The Flava

Straight Bananarama.

The aroma translated very well into a sweet and summery flavour profile that was very enjoyable.

At first, I mainly got all bananas, but the sweet lemon vibes come out in a J. Fascinating and agreeable.

OGEN-container-back

The Feel

The flowers were dense and relatively sticky.

Not hard as rocks, but something more along the lines of a slightly squishy, robust texture that had a little give when I applied pressure.

Between this offering and the OGEN Freshly Baked #76, I'd go out on a limb and say this is precisely the kind of texture I expect from a premium product.

However, it should be noted that at around $40 for an eighth after tax, it's pretty affordable considering the level of quality.

ogen-container-front

The Experience

Overall, a great product at an affordable price point.

I would 100% repurchase this Lemon Z without hesitation. The aromas were interesting enough to leave a lasting impression.

Delivers a quality experience and nice effects suitable for the daytime.

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)

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.

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.

#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.)
