Medical Marijuana: Outdoor Trainwreck

March 9th, 2007 by Ryan

Outdoor Trainwreck

Most people I talk to always comment on trainwreck being one of their favorite strains. After trying this Outdoor Trainwreck, I can definitely agree with them! This strain really does make you feel like a train hit you.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Strain Outdoor Trainwreck
Type Sativa dominant
Pros Powerful high
Cons Mostly heady
Price $25/g, $70/8th
tFS Rating 8.0/10

This strong sativa really is a punch to the face with a head-concentrated high. On top of this, it doesn’t leave the body heavy and slow. At first glance this bud doesn’t look like a rock star, but you will notice nice, long hairs that are covered in crystals. The sweet skunky smell also stuns the nose. And the light green colored leaves just makes it a great bud to gaze.

The high hits quickly in the face & head area and stays there for about two hours. I would also recommend some eye drops for this high, might experience some dryness or itchiness. The effects are pretty straight forward – smacks you in the face and stays there. The body isn’t really affected except for sporadic spots on the feet.

It took me a while to become a fan of trainwreck, but this strain has changed my opinion entirely. This mid-range bud sure does the trick when in search of a well-rounded sativa, it has exceeded expectations.

Medical Marijuana: Hash Plant

Hash Plant

Looking for a no non-sense herb without the frills? Hash Plant is one of those indeed, lacking just about everything besides the stone.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Strain Hash Plant
Type Indica dominant
Pros Good body high
Cons Over-priced, bad taste
Price $20/g, $65/8th
tFS Rating 6.0/10

It’s difficult to pin-point a definitive smell to this bud. If it came down to it, I’d have to say it smells like a watered-down dollop of Heinz 57. Isn’t pleasant at all which makes me question why I bought this strain in the first place. Also, the looks aren’t very flattering, compact buds with zero crystals.

The earthy flavor of the smoke left something to be desired, a taste similar to chlorophyll (a likely symptom of improper curing.) A good aspect about Hash Plant is its very resinous nature, so you know the end result will be just fine. The high is very nice. It starts in the chest area and gradually works its way up north. The stone lasts for around two to three hours.

If you don’t like all that glitz and glamor with rock star buds like kush, then Hash Plant might be right for you. Although it’s over-priced, doesn’t taste very good, and is kind of malodorous; it tries to compensate in the effects department and does so admirably. Honestly, if you spend an extra five bucks, you can get a bud that excels in all departments. Spend the extra five bucks.

Medical Marijuana: Master Kush

March 5th, 2007 by Alex

Master Kush

Well, this is a definite first for tFS. The rating and name speaks for itself. Master Kush, an indica strain, is the best medical marijuana money can buy.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Strain Master Kush
Type Indica dominant
Pros Strongest high
Cons Expensive
Price $30/g, $80/8th
tFS Rating 10.0/10

This dense bud is extra sticky and almost appears polar white due to its super crystallized leaves. When you break the nugs apart, a distinct, sweet smell fills the air. This strain really is everything you look for in medical marijuana.

In addition, the smoke has a sweet zip to it and doesn’t leave a bad aftertaste in the mouth. The high hits hard & quickly from the beginning, mostly starting in the head and moving its way throughout in a matter of minutes.

There aren’t many significant negatives that stand out other than the fact that it can be too intense at times. Yes, too intense. And this 10 out of 10 kush strain is not cheap by any means, but hey if you can afford it, saddle up cowboy! You will not be disappointed.

Medical Marijuana: True OG Kush

March 1st, 2007 by Ryan

True OG Kush

True OG Kush is one of the “ultimate” kush strains found in sunny Southern California. Very few other strains seem to compare to True OG’s unique scent, taste, and mental & physical effects.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Strain True OG Kush
Type Indica dominant
Pros Intense high
Cons Long recovery
Price $30/g, $80/8th
tFS Rating 9.5/10

True OG’s light, almost neon green leaves are simply great to gaze at, with a copious amount of crystals covering every inch. The buds are dense but break apart with ease, leaving your fingers sticky and aromatic for a while afterwards.

When smoked, the first shock wave hits hard. It doesn’t take long to realize that you’re already feeling its effects from just one or two hits. This bud is for real. A few hits of this True OG and the effects are long-lasting and intense, but beware that the recovery period from this is heavy. This bud is more of a late night adventure than a midday smoke break.

This strain is no joke, seriously. If you want the cream of the crop in the kush realm, here it is. Come to think of it, True OG should come with a warning label about inducing an extreme level of munchie impulses.

Chef Boyarweed: Dank Brownies

Chef Boyarweed: Dank Brownies

While checking out the edibles at my local dispensary, I decided to pick up Chef Boyarweed’s Dank Brownie and it made my night turn out especially relaxing.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Category Medicinal Edible
Company Chef Boyarweed
Pros Long lasting
Cons Taste
Price $10.00
tFS Rating 8.0/10

This brownie doesn’t stray far from its dank name. It packs a powerful punch that starts to take effect fairly quickly (for an edible) and lasts for several hours. Again, this ranges from person to person, based on his or her size/weight and the amount of food in the stomach at the time of digestion. In my personal case, it lasted for almost four hours.

The smell doesn’t signal any potency within. Unfortunately, when eating this little delectable, it doesn’t provide the best chocolate flavor… largely due to the sizable amounts of marijuana mixed in (which you will definitely notice). Just wash it down with a glass of milk and you’ll be good to go.

One thing I wish was on the packaging was the amount of bud used in the recipe and also the strain type. Still, it is well worth the $10 price tag. Overall, a great edible that doesn’t break your wallet and leave you asking, “That’s it?”

If it works for you as it did for me, you’ll be looking to increase your brownie budget.

Medical Marijuana: Misty Haze

February 27th, 2007 by Ryan

Misty Haze

Misty Haze is a sativa strain that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg yet provides a nice, quick high. A great break from the low range buds ranging to the super intense buds.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Strain Misty Haze
Type Sativa Dominant
Pros Very underestimated
Cons Short lasting high
Price $20/g, $60/8th
tFS Rating 7.0/10

I saw this bud up on the board and thought to myself that I enjoy most Haze strains, so lets give this one a try. This light green bud has a subtle amount of crystals that are just enough to pack a quick, intense hit.

The high hits your face & head area hard and very quickly, lasting for about 30 to 40 minutes. After that, it mellows out to almost nothing within the next 20 minutes – some might call it a rollercoaster ride. Overall, this haze variant doesn’t have the longest lasting high but make sure not to underestimate it.

When you take everything into consideration, this strain is a very decent bud for the level of highness and the price tag attached to it. You probably won’t come across this variety too often, but if you do, make sure not to look away too quickly.

Concentr8 Dumb Drops: Lemon

February 26th, 2007 by Alex

Concentr8 Dumb Drops: Lemon

To start this week off with something a little different, I’m reviewing Concentr8’s Dumb Drops in Lemon flavor.

Edibles are always a challenge to review because their effects are so subjective – how big you are, what you’ve eaten and if you drink any alcohol all massively alter the effectiveness of THC being delivered to the body through the GI tract.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Category Medicinal Edible
Company Concentr8
Pros Powerful edible
Cons Bitter taste
Price $20.00
tFS Rating 8.5/10

The first positive point about this gumdrop is that it keeps well. Each one comes in its own individual screw-top case and, unlike truffles, they won’t melt in the sun. The gumpdrop itself is relatively large, with the exact same diameter as a quarter.

Both the smell and taste are relatively subtle with this edible. It’s got a light, sugary smell with undertones of hash. As you can see from the picture, this little ball of sugar packs a punch. Depending on your luck, you can get up to .8 a gram of hash in each one.

The Dumbdrops are extremely chewy and it takes a while to get the whole thing down. The more you chew, the more you start to taste the bitterness of the hash, which isn’t entirely pleasant.

These gumdrops creep up on you, with the first of the effects being felt around 25 minutes after taking the lemon drop. It’s hard to describe the exact feeling, but if you’ve taken an edible you know how it affects your body and spreads from there. This is one of the strongest edibles I’ve come across and it definitely puts you in your seat.

For the cost of $20 a pop, this is a great deal. An edible that you can rely on is a nice change of pace and Concentr8 has created something that’s worth the cash.

Cherry Lemon Lime Soda

February 23rd, 2007 by Tim

Cherry Lemon Lime Soda

Medicinal beverages are growing in popularity at local dispensaries. Today, I’m reviewing Cherry Lemon Lime Soda.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Category Medicinal Beverage
Company Generic
Pros Good taste
Cons Subtle effects
Price $25.00
tFS Rating 6.0/10

This soda tastes a lot like a Shirley Temple with Sprite. Not bad, similar to regular soda actually. And like the Strawberry Soda we reviewed a month ago, this flavor contains the same amount of active THC ingredient (at 45×660mg.)

The aftertaste is where the regular soda characteristics end, as you can distinctly taste the thin film that coats the surface of your mouth. And that coating reminds you, “Hey, I’m having a weed drink.” Cool. Thanks weed drink.

As for the carbonation, there wasn’t enough of it, and that’s a big minus. I want my soda bubbly. Like my buddy Alex said with his Strawberry Soda review:

These beverages are for medicinal use only and enable patients who are unable to smoke or in situations where it is inappropriate to smoke the ability to stay medicated. The soda takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 1½ hours to settle in. Depending on your body size/weight and if you’ve eaten recently, the effects can vary, but generally involve a subtle body high that lasts for a couple of hours.

If you get a chance to try it out, I would, but don’t get more than one. Not enough pick-me-up for the price.
