Community Review: Wedding Pie by DJA

PINE AND SPICE

This flower was gifted to me back in early March of 2020 from a friend in Hamilton, Ontario who got it off a friend who grows their own. This review won’t be too detailed like the other given by DJA as I don’t have much information.

 

Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes

Unknown of the cannabinoid content and terpenes. My guess on the THC potency would be in the range of 15 to 20% based on how I felt after use.

I would suspect this was caryophyllene and pinene dominant in terms of terpenes. 

 

Smell, Taste and Appearance

This was given to me in a zip lock bag and was slightly dry so I used a Boveda to bring some moisture back to the flower. It smelled of pine and spice, and flavour too when vaped. 

Appearances showed brownish orange pistils snaking its way on this dense bud with a good amount of trichomes. Under the macro lens you can see some trichome heads were intact but also some were shaved off with a trimmer or something, just like the last grow I reviewed of theirs. While the bud looks nice and manicured, losing any trichomes is a loss.

Consumption Methods

Since I only had a few vape sessions in the Mighty vaporizer I found myself vaping mostly between the temperatures of 185 to 195 Celsius (365 to 383F) with each session lasting around seven minutes or so.

Never had the chance to try this in joint form, can’t detail on the ash quality or smoke.

 

Words From The Grower

Unfortunately I never had contact with the grower, no words from the grower on this one.

 

Final Thoughts

I enjoyed vaping this homegrown cannabis, it was a treat to photograph and appreciate the free flower.

EARTH, WOOD AND BERRY 

This flower was gifted to me back in early March of 2020 from a friend in Hamilton, Ontario who got it off a friend who grows their own. This review won’t be too detailed as I don’t have much information but let’s get to it.

 

Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes

Unknown of the cannabinoid content and terpenes. My guess on the THC potency would be in the range of 15 to 20% based on how I felt after use.

I would suspect there was myrcene and pinene in this.  

 

Smell, Taste and Appearance

This was given to me in a zip lock bag and was quite dry so I used a Boveda to bring some moisture back to the flower. It smelled earthy and woodsy, and when vaped it also had hints of berry. 

Appearances were good on this dense bud with a heavy blanket of trichomes but under the macro lens you can see the trichome heads were shaved off with a trimmer or something, this is a first among home grows I’ve evaluated.

Consumption Methods

Since I only had a few vape sessions in the Mighty vaporizer I found myself vaping mostly between the temperatures of 180 to 185 Celsius (356 to 365F) with each session lasting around eight minutes or so.

Never had the chance to try this in joint form, can’t detail on the ash quality or smoke.

 

Words From The Grower

Unfortunately I never had contact with the grower, no words from the grower on this one.

 

Final Thoughts

I enjoyed vaping this homegrown flower and it was tasty! I wish we had this cultivar by a licensed producer as it provided me with the relief I needed.

Community Review: Rare Dankness by PankcakeNap

ANOTHER GREAT HOME GROW

This is the second review of a Pancakenap homegrow, of which he sent me 2.3 grams to try and this was reviewed back in late January 2020. Omitted from this review will be price, shipping and pack dates since the cost to me was zero as this was gifted cannabis. I’ve added a new section for homegrown reviews called, “Words from the grower” which includes some insights to the grow itself if the grower would like to detail a bit.   

Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes

Unknown of the cannabinoid content and terpenes. I would suspect there were high amounts of myrcene and caryophyllene in this and small amounts of limonene. My guess on the THC potency would be in the range of low to mid 20s based on how I felt after use.  

Smell and Appearance

Vacuumed sealed for freshness and presenting itself with nice earthy and lemon gas notes after unpacking, I instantly noticed the heavy coated trichomes on the buds along the properly trimmed and beautiful orange pistils surrounded by dark purple leaves on display. I knew this was going to be an enjoyable flower to photograph and consume. The buds were extremely dense, hard to pick apart and sticky. It made me miss how licensed produced cannabis used to be years ago on the medical side. 

Consumption Methods

Every vape session in the Mighty vaporizer was enjoyable and I didn’t have a preferred temperature with this one as each setting was great. Each session lasted around seven to eight minutes. Below this wording I’ve included the temperatures and length of my sessions before I had to dispose of the cannabis.

338F (170C) – 8 minutes
347F (175C) – 8 minutes
356F (180C) – 7 minutes
365F (185C) – 7 minutes
374F (190C)  – 6 minutes

Rolled into a gram and smoked as a joint was enjoyable as well, very smokey and ash was grey but on the lighter side. It tickled my tongue a bit and the flavour was earthy with a hint of lemon. I preferred this in my vape as I got to have more experience with it and to enjoy the flavour profile.

 

Words From The Grower

This seed became available from rare dankness early 2019, And I couldn’t wait to grow it in the upcoming season. I grew it in soil in an air pot and fertilized it with aquaponic water.  I vegetated it outdoors for about 160 days and flowered it indoors for just less than 80 days. The plant yielded just over 300 grams of dried flower or 1.3 grams of flower for every day it grew. Yield in the space it flowered in was 15 grams per square foot. Overall, I really like the flower. The buds are really dense, so I have some lessons learned on how to cure it better for the next grow.”

 

Final Thoughts

Photographing homegrown cannabis has been my favourite out of most of the cannabis I’ve tried, the level of detail shown in the macro shots are intense with full trichome heads intact and stunning variation of colour presenting itself. I enjoyed this cultivar grown by Pancakenap and hope to share more from his grows.  

Thanks again pancakenap! You can follow his work on his website, or on social media on Twitter, Instagram or YouTube

Community Review: First Home Grow I Review by Pankcakenap

Intense Aroma, Flaring My Nostrils

This is my first homegrown review of cannabis sent to me from our social network on Twitter. Pankcakenap sent me 2.3 grams of cannabis and I got to review this around early December. Omitted from this review will be price, shipping and pack dates since the cost to me was zero as this was gifted cannabis.

 

Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes

Unknown of the cannabinoid content and terpenes. I would suspect there were high amounts of limonene and myrcene in this.

 

Smell and Appearance

Ripping open the vacuumed sealed package like a kid opening presents on Christmas Day, I was excited to see what some good homegrown stuff was like from a member of our cannabis community. I could immediately sense the strong aromas hitting my nose, gassy and pungent sweet earths filled my nostrils. Reminded me slightly of Jellysickle and Sour Tangie.  

Two dense buds around 0.85 grams each, with the third being about 0.6 grams. Picture perfect and sugar coated trichomes were present everywhere. Light greens were beneath the trichomes surrounded by a high amount of orange pistils. Under the macro lens for a closer look revealed the trichome intensity. By far the best flower I have photographed to date.  

Consumption Methods

Every vape session in the Mighty vaporizer was enjoyable and found myself vaping mostly between the temperatures of 170 to 185 Celsius (338 to 365F) with each session lasting around eight minutes. I had no issue going to higher temperatures but found sessions were shorter and wanted to enjoy this as long as possible. 

Rolled into a gram and smoked as a joint was pleasant, producing white ash and a nice smooth smoke during inhalation. As usual I preferred the vaporizer as I enjoy the taste more using that method. 

Final Thoughts

I really enjoyed this one and had a great time photographing the beauty of this grow. You can follow Pancakenap on Twitter, Instagram or YouTube
