Cannabis Review: Rockstar Kush by JWC

Nighttime Kush After A Rockstar Day

You could say I’m a fan of Kush varieties, Rockstar Kush was my 26th. 

 

Potency

I would consider this a high potency product with 20.16% THC and negligible amounts of CBD. This was packed on August 2 2019, a day after purchase. August was a busy month for me and didn’t get around to reviewing this until September 3rd.

 

Price and Shipping

The price varies on amounts bought from $8 to $12 per gram. I paid $10 a gram plus tax since I bought 5 grams off the JWC medical website.

Shipping was free with Canada Post or Purolator as my total order was over $150, otherwise it would’ve been $10 flat.

 

Smell and Appearance

Pungent earths and pine aromas were noticeable upon opening the container. The buds weren’t the largest and only a couple were the size of a ping pong ball, with the rest popcorn sized.

Glittering like a rockstar on stage, these plump green buds showed light orange pistils across the abundant trichomes. No humidity pack was needed to restore the moisture balance.

 

Consumption Methods

Primarily using the Mighty vaporizer with varying temperatures, I found the best temperatures were around 170C (338F) to 195C (383F). Most of my sessions were around seven to eight minutes and held 0.25 grams of cannabis each time.

 

Effects

After consuming 0.25g in my vaporizer, I found great pain relief and relaxation being the primary effects for me. I preferred this potent cultivar at night as I experienced the “heavy head” feeling and after having a few sessions of this in a row, it made me sleepy. 

Duration of effects lasted around 90 to 120  minutes

 

Terpenes

The terpene profile listed on the JWC website noted b-Caryophyllene being the dominant terpene at 31.92%. b-Ocimene 16.51% and b-Pinene 12.02% as secondary terpenes, and quite a few others making up the content below 11%.

 

Recommendation

I would buy it again but preferred other cultivars over Rockstar Kush. Maybe next time I’ll buy 15 grams and see how big the buds are, as larger containers generally have better sized flower.
