Review of Cresco Flower

image163

707 Headband  3.5/5 


Aroma: The nose holds a black licorice note, anise, mothball, touch of skunky funk...

Texture: Buds are soft yet firm, nice balance of dry/moist...

Appearance: Half horned, yet with an overall full, dense bud structure.

Smoke/Taste: Smooth but a hint of harshness in the finish, would benefit from a longer cure.

High: Clocked within 20 seconds, as I typed the Smoke/Taste section, it settled over me nicely. It's a thoughtful high, with a good functionality.  


Alien  Bubba- 2.4/5 - S 

 

Aroma: Opening container-fruity, floral, reminds me  of black market buds with a generic aroma.. Broken buds- bit of spice,  cheese

Texture: good, nice balance, bit on the drier side of the spectrum but nice.

Appearance: light green, crystals, long orange hairs, large calyxes

Smoke/Taste: ok, some floral notes, bit harsh in the finish.

High: Good, relaxing, chill..

DJ Flo - 4.5/5 !!! - S 


Aroma: Opening container- Amazing aroma, very berry.. Broken buds have a grapes & funk aroma.­­­­­­

Texture: great level of moisture, perfectly cured

Appearance: green look, medium green large buds, crystals

Smoke/Taste:  Reminds me of purple gatorade in a very good way, smooth... An aromatic  incense in the exhale, creating a room you are amazed at after leaving  and coming back. It's a whole experience, the traditional fun, laugh  filled smoke circle of cliche is embodied in one hit. The flavor is  there, the high is there, the clean hit is there (indicating a clean  flush, frankly rare in the IMCPP). This makes the whole process worth  while. It feels like this was and is consistently a cared for plant,  raised with love and respected to present its full potential.

High: very uplifting, motivational

THC 1.06% THCA 17.01% CBD 0% & CBDA 0%

another batch had these #'s: THC 1.94% THCA 22.05% CBD 0% & CBDA 0%, still awesome­­­­­

High as a Mug! light yet clocking, big body high. Went from in the dumps to in the pumps!!! Up in my seat!!


Durban  Poison- S - 2.9/5 (higher if not over dried)


Aroma: Open: Big sweet  orange citrus with some pine.. Broken: sweet melon with big citrus &  some pine, nice.

Texture: a bit dry, but not to the point of braking up in to dust.. fingers a bit sticky after.

Appearance:  One bud light green (more crystals too), the other two are darker.  Small calyxes w/ orange & some light orange hairs (a touch  immature?).

Smoke/Taste: ok, the pine comes in at  the finish & in a few exhale breaths post hit, nice but the dryness  makes it a hint harsh.

High: Good, quick, felt within 2 minutes & now I'm way high..

THC 0.61% THCA 24.31% CBD 0% & CBDA 0%

Tried  again & the numbers were a bit different (THC 0.95% THCA 21.72% CBD  0% & CBDA 0%), but all other things similar except less of a pine  note, more fruit, this one not too dry either, so 2.8/5 for this one..
