Cannabis Review: Warwick #1 (91 Krypt OG Melon) by Aurora Cannabis

A Bud With A Smile

91 Krypt OG Melon or as Aurora Cannabis puts it, Warwick #1 on the medical side. If I wanted this from a retail store, it’s sold as OG Melon by Aurora. Confused a bit? It’s okay I am too. The genetic lineage of Captain Krypt, OG and 91 Chemdawg make this interesting flower, and was a long time favourite of mine from this Alberta company. 

Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes

THC content was 18.3% and had zero amounts of CBD as noted on the container. 

Based on the data at the time of purchase from Aurora’s medical cannabis website, Caryophyllene was the leading dominant terpene with a value of 0.313%, Myrcene at 0.26% and Limonene at 0.223%. Smaller amounts of many other terpenes were present at lower values.

Price, Shipping and Pack Dates

The price per gram was $8.75 plus taxes with shipping being free with Canada Post or Purolator as my total order was over $99, otherwise it would’ve been $16 to 18 depending on the carrier used.

This was packed on December 19th 2019 according to the label, and I purchased this on January 3rd 2020. I opened the container on January 10th which means this product was packaged for 23 days.

 

Smell, Taste and Appearance

Initial observations upon taking the seal off the jar was a strong fruity smell, slightly reminding me of Tangerine Dream. Taste during inhalation was orange and earthy, the same as when I tried this cultivar in the past. 

Appearances seemed okay, slightly small and airy buds that held together but had a good moisture balance and didn’t require an immediate need for a humidity pack before use, however I did use the one provided with my order free of charge. Light green buds with a light amount of scattered trichomes were present. It wasn’t the most visually appealing flower I’ve had to date and would classify the visual bag appeal low.

Consumption Methods

With every review I’ve ever done I try a minimum of six temperatures and see how long each session lasts. This may vary by each device and the one used here was the Mighty vaporizer. 

Noted below I found 180 degrees celsius (356F) the best with sessions lasting about seven minutes using around 0.25 grams of cannabis. Other temperatures worked fine, lower temperatures offered less vapour but effects felt the same regardless if I vaporized at my ideal 180C (356F). Higher temperatures around 190C (374F) resulted in a harsh taste. 

170C (338F) – 8 minutes – Okay
175C (347F) – 8 minutes – Okay
180C (356F) – 7 minutes – Best
185C (365F) – 6 minutes – Increased visible vapour
190C (374F) – 6 minutes – Bad
195C (383F) – 5 minutes – Bad

In joint form the smoke was smooth and didn’t produce any coughing, however the ash was very dark. As usual I preferred vaporization to enjoy the flavour.

 

Subjective Effects and Final Thoughts

I did enjoy this cultivar from Aurora as it made me feel relaxed and was great for daydreaming, adding some creativity to my day but found repeated use led to triggering acid reflux and felt an upper tightness along with it. Laying down made the burning sensation ease and stopping the use of this particular cultivar eradicated the issue. Duration of the effects were short and lasted roughly 60 minutes. 

As much as I enjoyed “OG Melon” as it was held as one of my favourites for a while in the past, I can’t deal with the intense acid reflux issue caused. For others they may enjoy it in the daytime but cautioning others if they notice similar effects to mine. As for value, I think other cultivars around the $9 price point per gram do a better job than this.
