Cannabis Review: White Widow by Supreme via CannMart

3 MIN READING TIME

Packaged For 7 Months And Still Decent

This cannabis flower is from the Supreme Cannabis Company, and grown by the people over at 7ACRES, which is a licensed producer out in Kincardine, Ontario and was purchased from CannMart, a 3rd party provider of licensed produced cannabis in Canada.

 

Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes

The label on the container showed a value of 10.591% THC and 0.036% CBD.

Myrcene was the main terpene here with a value of 0.230%. Limonene (0.123%) and Caryophyllene (0.109%) were worth noting. Others were listed as well with a value below 0.025%.

 

Price, Shipping and Pack Dates

I purchased 3.55 grams from CannMart at the cost of $10 per gram plus taxes. The cost of shipping was free with Canada Post since my order was over $100, otherwise it would’ve been $9 flat.

The package date on the container was noted April 23rd 2019 and was ordered on November 11. I began reviewing this on November 28, which means the product was packaged for 220 days before being opened.

Smell and Appearance

Despite being over seven months old there was still a strong smell after opening the container. Strong earths and lemon were noticed, and a slight pine when grinded. 

The buds were mostly dense and chunky, some smaller ones were there as well. Visible break offs were noticed around the rim and sides of the white plastic container, some light greens and yellows. Moisture content wasn’t the best, slightly dry and required the use of the provided Boveda pack. 

Consumption and Taste

Using the Mighty vaporizer with the capsule doses I used about 0.25 grams of flower and found 180 to 185 Celsius (356 to 365 Fahrenheit) the best temperature to use for about eight minutes.

I rolled a gram joint to see how it burned and found grey ash on the lighter side was produced, smoke being smooth to inhale and didn’t require any relighting. I still preferred to use this in the vape.

 

Subjective Effects

One session using 0.25 grams was okay that provided moderate pain relief. Back to back sessions I had a heavy head, felt tired, and a bit anxious. I’ve always felt this way with White Widow for some reason which had similar terpene profiles. Dry eyes were a common annoyance when consuming more than half a gram, any less wasn’t an issue. Duration of effects was around 90 minutes and preferred use was at nightime. 

 

Final Thoughts

The age of the product held its quality fairly well, however at the cost of $10 per gram I’d rather take a gamble and buy from my local shop where 7ACRES flower would likely be fresher. I also wouldn’t buy it again as the effects weren’t ideal for me but it may be great for others.

Cannabis Review: Night Queen by A B Labs via CannMart

3 MIN READING TIME

Don’t Expect To Roll This

This cannabis flower is from A B Labs, a licensed producer out in Ancaster, Ontario and was purchased from CannMart which is a 3rd party provider of licensed produced cannabis in Canada. I liked this one but there was a serious downfall.

 

Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes

The label on the container showed a value of 11.1% THC and 0.044% CBD.

Noted from the CannMart website showed that Myrcene was the leading dominant terpene with a value of 0.114%. Pinene (0.0304%), Limonene (0.022%) and Linalool (0.019%) were listed as well and others at much lower values than 0.02%.

 

Price, Shipping and Pack Dates

I purchased 3.55 grams from CannMart at the cost of $8.57 per gram plus taxes. The cost of shipping was free with Canada Post since my order was over $100, otherwise it would’ve been $9 flat.

The package date on the container was noted July 25th 2019 and was ordered on November 11. I began reviewing this on November 25, which means the product was packaged for 124 days before being opened.

Smell and Appearance

There was a noticeable woodsy aroma after tearing open the sachet. Inside was a small Boveda pack that’s there to maintain freshness but this far from fresh. The Boveda was dried out already and I blame this type of packaging, or maybe it was dried out when packed, who knows.

While the buds were extremely dry and the grinds resulting in a fine, powdery mess I did attempt on rolling a joint which was a huge mess. Up close the trichome heads were amber and explains the golden shade across the dry airy buds.

Consumption and Taste

I used my Mighty vaporizer in the temperature range of 170 to 190 Celsius (338F to 374F) using about 0.25g using the dosing capsules. My favorite temperature was 180C (356F) for about eight minutes, wasn’t too bad and not terrible, tasted woodsy and reminded me of Afghan Kush a bit.

In joint form it took a few extra tries to roll due to being powdery, and when burned it resulted in grey ash. Smoke was smooth and didn’t require any relighting which was a positive. Preference was using the vaporizer.

 

Subjective Effects

Feeling slightly tired after consuming it with both methods would indicate to use this at night, however the increased hunger is what kept me up. Duration of effects lasted around 90 minutes before weaning off.

 

Final Thoughts

This cultivar had potential to be great but was too dried out and had very little moisture in it, if any at all. I wouldn’t buy this again unless it was packaged better. If you plan on trying this make sure you have a vaporizer to enjoy it fully.

Cannabis Review: Opium by Agro Greens via CannMart

3 MIN READING TIME

A Mean Looking Bud

This cannabis flower is from Agro Greens, a licensed producer out in Macklin, Saskatchewan and was purchased from CannMart which is a 3rd party provider of licensed produced cannabis in Canada. 

 

Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes

The label on the container showed a value of 19.5% THC and zero CBD.

On the Agro Greens website they have listed the terpenes in this cultivar, Myrcene had a value of 0.754% and was the leading dominant terpene. Bisabolol was a mere 0.188%, Humulene 0.115%, Guaiol 0.113% and a very small amount of Limonene at 0.036%.

 

Price, Shipping and Pack Dates

I purchased 5 grams from CannMart at the cost of $13.99 per gram plus taxes. The cost of shipping was free with Canada Post since my order was over $100, otherwise it would’ve been $9 flat.

The package date on the container was noted July 17th 2019 and was ordered on November 11. I began reviewing this on November 22, which means the product was packaged for 129 days before being opened.

Smell and Appearance

Upon opening the container I could smell an earthy pine scent with hints of lemon. Inside the container was a small four gram Boveda pack which likely kept this product fresh over the short time it was packaged. Reason why I say that is because my luck with these large round containers usually dry out the buds fairly quickly as you’ll see in my other CannMart reviews.  

The buds looked decent and averaged of a medium size, had a good spongy feel to them and perfectly balanced moisture. A golden shade with light greens were noticed, and up close and magnified showed a ton of trichomes covering the bud. Lots of dark orange pistils poking about, however small amounts of leaves were left intact and noticeable stems.

Consumption and Taste

I used my Mighty vaporizer in the temperature range of 170 to 190 Celsius (338F to 374F). Eight minute sessions were typical at lower temperatures, and on the higher end six to seven minutes sessions using 0.25 grams of cannabis. In joint form it burned grey but the ash was on the lighter side. The smoke was smooth and I really enjoyed, but as usual I preferred consuming in the vaporizer.  

 

Subjective Effects

Upbeat, positive feelings with moderate pain relief and a noticeable head high. I didn’t feel tired by any means despite the high amount of myrcene and was able to maintain a conversation and staying productive.

Common negatives were increased hunger and dry mouth but easily remedied . I preferred using this in the afternoon or evening and found the duration of effects lasted around 90 minutes.

 

Final Thoughts

I would buy this again but it was expensive and will prevent me from buying it again as I found cheaper alternatives. Overall, a great choice to mellow out and relax while getting things done.

Cannabis Review: Blueberry by Weed Me via PureSinse

3 MIN READING TIME

Achoo! Why Am I Sneezing So Much?

This cannabis flower is from Weed Me, a company out in Pickering, Ontario. They claim to have unique genetics and grow premium quality cannabis. I ordered this from PureSinse which is a 3rd party provider of licensed produced cannabis in Canada.

 

Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes

The label on the container showed a value of 12.14% THC and zero CBD.

Listing four of the top terpenes noted from the PureSinse website I was able to find that Myrcene had a value of 0.09% and was the leading dominant terpene. Caryophyllene trailed it with a value at 0.08%, and Pinene at 0.05%. Other terpenes were present at lower values. The amount of terpenes in total were quite low for “premium” buds.

 

Price, Shipping and Pack Dates

I purchased 3.5 grams from PureSinse at the cost of $9.76 per gram plus taxes. The cost of shipping was free with Canada Post since my order was over $100, otherwise it would’ve been $9.49 for the cheapest shipping option.

The package date on the container was noted May 31st 2019 and was ordered on October 28. I began reviewing this on November 20, which means the product was packaged for 174 days before being opened.

Smell and Appearance

Much like most of the PureSunse lineup the buds were very dry and when grinded the flower was almost like dust. The aromas were very faint and had a slight berry smell to them. I used a humidity pack at my expense and found it helped a bit in terms of bringing some moisture back. 

Under a macro lens the flower looks great with a mix of purple and green, and orange pistils everywhere, much like my last review by Thrive’s Shishkaberry. Trichomes are looking great at five times the magnification, the heads aren’t cut off which is nice to see.  

Consumption and Taste

I used my Mighty vaporizer in the temperature range of 170 to 190 Celsius (338F to 374F). Eight minute sessions were typical at lower temperatures, and on the higher end five to six minutes sessions using 0.25 grams of cannabis per session. In joint form it burned grey ash and preferred consuming in the vaporizer. Slight berry and pine notes were noticed after inhalation. 

 

Subjective Effects

In terms of the feelings I felt I would say at best they were mild. Pain relief was moderate and noticed it took two full sessions to really notice a decent effect. For some reason I sneezed a lot when I rolled this into a joint and every time I vaped, the sneezing stopped about an hour after my session. I preferred using this in the afternoon or evening and found the duration of effects lasted 60 minutes.

 

Final Thoughts

With the product being nearly six months old, very dry out of the container and the odd sneezing that kept happening during/after consuming I won’t be buying this again. I found better quality with other products at the same cost or even less.

Cannabis Review: Shishkaberry by Thrive via PureSinse

3 MIN READING TIME

Another “Premium” Grow Misses The Mark

This review is part of a larger write up on various Shishkaberry grows I evaluated called, Battle of the Shishkaberry. This cannabis flower is from Thrive, a company out in Ontario who is owned by TerraFarma. They claim to be growing premium quality as a small-batch craft cannabis company. I ordered this from PureSinse which is a 3rd party provider of licensed produced cannabis in Canada.

 

Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes

The label on the container showed a value of 15% THC and zero CBD.

Listing four of the top terpenes noted from the PureSinse website I was able to find that Pinene had a value of 0.20% and was the leading dominant terpene. Linalool had a smaller value at 0.12%, with Bisabolol at 0.07% and Camphene at 0.06%. Other terpenes were present at much lower values. The amount of terpenes in total were quite low for a “premium” grow.

 

Price, Shipping and Pack Dates

I purchased 3.5 grams from PureSinse at the cost of $9.50 per gram plus taxes. The cost of shipping was free with Canada Post since my order was over $100, otherwise it would’ve been $9.49 for the cheapest shipping option.

The package date on the container was noted May 23rd 2019 and was ordered on October 28. I began reviewing this on November 18, which means the product was packaged for 180 days before being opened.

Smell and Appearance

Due to the buds being really dry there wasn’t much of an aroma to it. Slight muted berry tones if anything. I used a humidity pack at my expense to try and bring back the moisture levels, it helped a bit. 

Under a macro lens the flower looks great with a mix of purple and green, and orange pistils everywhere. If this was hand-trimmed I doubt the entire process was done this way, the trichomes look like many were buzzed off with a trimmer. Grinds were fine when used with a grinder. Wasn’t ideal for rolling a joint.

Consumption and Taste

I used my Mighty vaporizer in the temperature range of 170 to 180 Celsius (338F to 356F) for about seven minutes using 0.25 grams of cannabis per session. Higher temperatures were okay but session length was reduced to around five minutes at 190C (374F). During all sessions it tasted like a nice red wine with some berries.  

In joint form it burned grey white ash, wasn’t the greatest and preferred consuming in the vaporizer.

 

Subjective Effects

An upper body head high was mostly noticed and the relief from chronic pain I deal with in my joints was adequate. I preferred using this in the evening and found the duration of effects lasted 90 to 120 minutes.

 

Final Thoughts

I enjoyed the effects of Shishkaberry, but the quality wasn’t above average. The overly dried out flower was the downfall and I have tried better varieties for the same cost or less. Perhaps this would’ve been a better experience if the order was direct as my luck hasn’t been so great with 3rd party vendors.

Cannabis Review: Sensi Star by Supreme via PureSinse

3 MIN READING TIME

Supreme? 7ACRES? Yes to both.

I previously reviewed Sensi Star by 7ACRES, which is owned by The Supreme Cannabis Company. This review will be almost similar to that one as the source is the same, however this was purchased from the medical stream over at PureSinse and this review will highlight the differences at the end.

 

Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes

The label on the container showed a value of 19.22% THC and zero CBD.

Listing four of the top terpenes noted from the PureSinse website I was able to find that myrcene had a value of 0.90% and was the leading dominant terpene. Limonene was further behind at 0.39%, caryophyllene 0.16% and humulene at 0.08%. Other terpenes were present at much lower values.

 

Price, Shipping and Pack Dates

I purchased 3.5 grams from PureSinse at the cost of $9.50 per gram plus taxes. The cost of shipping was free with Canada Post since my order was over $100, otherwise it would’ve been $9.49 for the cheapest shipping option.

The date on the container was noted May 16th 2019 and was ordered on October 28. I began reviewing this on November 11, which means the product was packaged for 180 days before being opened.

 

Smell and Appearance

I would describe the aromas as earthy with sweet pine and woodsy notes, and when vaping the flower it was similar. Not as aromatic as my previous purchase though. 

Every 7ACRES product I’ve tried the buds were dense and most weighed around half a gram each. Moisture content was okay for its age, not perfect though and required the use of a humidity pack at my expense to try and restore the balance. Trichomes are looking great at five times magnification.

Consumption Methods

I used my Mighty vaporizer in the temperature range of 170 to 185 Celsius (338F to 365F) for about seven to eight minutes with 0.25 grams of cannabis per session. 

In joint form it burned nice white ash, was smooth however I preferred consuming in the vaporizer.

 

Subjective Effects

Consuming a single dose gave me great pain relief and some creativity while feeling slightly dreamy. I wouldn’t consume this throughout the day though and would recommend this at night as sleepiness and being forgetful occurred when consumed in a continually manner. Duration of effects lasted 90 to 120 minutes.

 

Comparisons and Final Thoughts

Sensi Star by 7ACRES has been one of my favourites for a while and when I heard this was available on the medical side I wanted to try it out and see how it compared. The smell was weaker possibly due to the age of 180 days vs 70 with OCS. The cost per gram was $9.50 a gram, much lower than the $13.69 per gram on the OCS website. The THC difference was minimal, and the shipping was free with PureSinse while OCS charged $5 flat plus HST. This is based on these two purchases for comparison at the time of writing and may vary.

I would buy this again as I believe the value is there, but a fresher inventory would be more ideal.
