Blueberry and Spice
It’s been a few months since I wrote a review on a JWC product, they recently launched six new cultivars and I’ve tried four of them as of this writing. Hash Plant was the first one I consumed after purchasing it off the JWC medical website in early December 2019 from this Kitchener, Ontario licensed producer.
Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes
Looking at the container showed the THC content of 18.53% and 0.04% CBD.
The terpene profile listed on the JWC website noted nerolidol was the dominant terpene capturing a third of the profile and close behind it was b-Pinene with a quarter noted. Secondary terpenes were caryophyllene and humulene taking 27% of the profile combined, and many others noted under 6%. Total measured terpenes was 1.377%.
Price, Shipping and Pack Dates
The price varies on amounts bought from $8.67 to $11 per gram. I paid $11 a gram plus tax since I bought 5 grams off the JWC medical webstore. Shipping was free with Canada Post or Purolator as my total order was over $150, otherwise it would’ve been $10 flat.
This was packed on December 10th 2019, a day after purchase which is typical of JWC. I got to reviewing this on December 24th but opened the container on December 18th 2019, so the product remained packaged for 9 days before opening.
Smell, Taste and Appearance
Upon opening the container I noticed a sweet blueberry scent, and when grinded it reminded me of blueberry muffins fresh out of the oven with hints of sugar and spice. The taste was similar in the vaporizer.
Dense buds were the size of a quarter to a full gram in weight. Moisture wasn’t too bad, still there but used the provided Boveda pack that was included with my order. Upclose visuals at five times magnification showed light orange pistils surrounded by lighter greens, and the trichomes were a bit on the light side, not heavily coated.
I preferred using my Mighty vaporizer with the dosing capsules that held about 0.25 grams of cannabis per session. I found temperatures of 175 to 180 celsius (347 to 356 fahrenheit) offered the best flavour with each session lasting up to eight minutes. Higher temperatures up to 190C (374F) was okay, but not great and sessions were much shorter around five minutes.
When reviewing I usually try a gram rolled up in joint form and found it produced grey ash on the darker side. Wasn’t much of a fan when it came to combustion.
A mild body buzz was the prime effect for me, slightly sedated but was able to function and still be productive. This hash plant cultivar made a great choice to consume when around others and a good way to relax after a long day. Pain relief was good, but not great.
The duration of effects lasted around 90 minutes and preferred using this in the evening, however daytime was okay after a couple days of use.
I really enjoyed the taste of hash plant and would buy it again but not at $11 per gram. If it were cheaper when buying five grams I would find it more appropriate as I found the amount of visible trichomes to be on the low end.
