Cannabis Review: Compassion Lime by Weed Me via PureSinse

Bubble Gum and Lime

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 medical provider of licensed produced cannabis in Canada.

 

Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes

The label on the container showed a value of 4.8% THC and 8.8% CBD.

Caryophyllene and myrcene were the main dominant terpenes and both had a value of 0.11%. Linalool (0.06%) and Bisabolol (0.05%) were present as well with lower values. Many others were noted on the PureSinse website with a value below 0.05%. The overall terpene content here was quite low.

 

Price, Shipping and Pack Dates

I purchased 3.5 grams from PureSinse at the cost of $12.50 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 June 10th 2019 and was ordered on October 28. I began reviewing this on December 3rd 2019, which means the product was packaged for 177 days before being opened.

Smell and Appearance

A faint smell of lime was noticed after opening the container. Very dry buds were observed and I had to use a humidity pack at my expense to put some moisture back into them, after a few days things seemed to stabilize and seem a bit better. 

The buds were in between dense and airy in terms of density. Light greens and visible orange pistils were noticed with the naked eye. Under magnification the trichomes looked decent, but more on the amber side. Possibly explains why sedation was stronger than expected.

Consumption and Taste

I began vaporizing at 170 Celsius (338 Fahrenheit) and with each individual session I go up 5 degrees celsius. The best range I found was 170C to 185C (338 to 365 F) using about 0.25 grams of cannabis in each capsule with the Mighty vaporizer for about eight minutes.

Overall taste was a sweet bubble gum with hints of lime and tasted really nice.

I didn’t consume this one in joint form.

 

Subjective Effects

My preference was generally staying above 180C (356F) since CBD begins to boil at this temperature. While the THC amount is just under five percent I did feel a bit tired, and mostly relaxed and enjoyed the nice upper body head high.

Double sessions were needed for the best pain relief. Duration of effects lasted around 90 minutes and found using this at night was ideal, however it was okay to use during the day if only one session was happening.

 

Final Thoughts

This was an enjoyable experience and I really liked the taste while vaping, but I wouldn’t buy it again as the cost was high and found cheaper alternatives that worked better for pain relief. This may work better for people new to cannabis or those who don’t want a strong effect, but expect to buy a humidity pack to revive it a bit.

Cannabis Review: Opium by Agro Greens via CannMart

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: Shishkaberry by Thrive via PureSinse

Another “Premium” quality label that misses the mark

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.
