Medical Marijuana: Hawaiian Sativa

February 22nd, 2007 by Ryan

Hawaiian Sativa

Hawaiian Sativa is something that looks like it just unloaded off a plane from Hawaii. A nice, plump piece of the big island!

theFreshScent Product Recap
Strain Hawaiian Sativa
Type Sativa dominant
Pros Peaceful high
Cons High could be stronger
Price $20/g, $60/8th
tFS Rating 7.5/10

The very first thing I enjoyed about this bud was its sweet garden smell. The nuggets are dense and compact with long thick red hairs. However, the shade of the leaves are slightly darker without an abundant amount of crystals. It could use a lighter shade of green to its color. Other than that, it looks like this crop was just picked off the plant.

The high isn’t as long lasting as you would hope for, but it does give you a great peaceful feeling for about an hour. Sure does help after a long day of work. Overall, it doesn’t pack the biggest punch but it does what is needed for a nice, relaxing evening.

This is one of those random strains you come across once in awhile, not living in the Hawaiian islands, this is relatively an inexpensive buy. A good looking, great tasting, and nice smelling bud that could use a little more kick.

Medical Marijuana: Super Silver Kush

Super Silver Kush

From the land of indicas comes a great strain called Super Silver Kush. A great indica bud that packs an above-average performance for a mid-range price.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Strain Super Silver Kush
Type Indica dominant
Pros Medium head high to relaxing body high
Cons Weak taste
Price $25/g, $70/8th
tFS Rating 7.5/10

The leaves are very short and dense with a medium coating of very tiny crystals. There is a shade of orange and tint of silver in each bud due to the abundant amount of crystal covered orange hairs. And with it being so dense, a small amount of bud goes a long way. The flavor is weak leaving much to be desired afterwards.

Effects from this indica kush start at the upper body region and quickly move to the rest of the body. It has a nice relaxing high to it after ~30 minutes. Blazed, I fully recommend checking out some art! The high lasts an average time, just under two hours, but is a great all-around feeling without a harsh come down.

Overall, this is just a good kush from California that isn’t too heavy on the pockets.

Medical Marijuana: Mr. Nice

February 16th, 2007 by Alex

Mr. Nice

Some of the pot we review here on tFS is about as good as it gets. Still, not everyone has the funds to be dropping $75 – $80 every single 1/8th, so we’re going to make sure to cover all spectrums of the medical strains available. Today, I’m reviewing a moderately priced batch of buds called Mr. Nice.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Strain Mr. Nice
Type Indica dominant
Pros Buzz-like body high
Cons Tough to break apart
Price $20/g, $65/8th
tFS Rating 8.0/10

The first thing you notice about this herb is how dense it is. If you pay attention to the photo, it’s obvious this is not a leafy strain, so small nugs will weigh more than expected. The bud itself is dark green with lots of low-lying hairs. There is a nice coating of crystals on the leaves, and combined with the ever-present hairs, they give the illusion of a light-beige coating.

Mr. Nice smells smells surprisingly good. It’s a bright, sweet aroma with some lemony undertones – think citrus. When smoked, this bud packs a serious body high. Not a pulsating body high, but one that feels like more of a warm buzz. The effects are felt in the chest & back area the most and stay potent for quite a long time. This bud is still extremely stoney well past the 1-hour mark.

It’s always nice to come across a strain that not only smokes well but doesn’t burn a fat whole in the wallet. I’d recommend this to budget and luxury smokers alike.

Medical Marijuana: Strawberry Skunk

Medical Marijuana: Strawberry Skunk

I came across a great little gem the other day and it goes by the name of Strawberry Skunk. This sativa provides a nice relaxing body high right from the start.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Strain Strawberry Skunk
Type Sativa
Pros Great body high
Cons Short lasting
Price $25/g, $70/8th
tFS Rating 7.0/10

The leaves are not that stinky but do have a heavy spread of crystals. The purple isn’t very distinct but there is a light green tint that looks nice and is evident in each bud. When the bud is broken up, there is a high-skunky smell that is overpowering.

This bud hits the body including arms, hands, legs, and feet perfectly. It is an intense high for about an hour, then easing into a nice feeling of relaxation. This plant is quality, but it could definitely last longer.

Strawberry is a true gem to come across and helps make the night a relaxing one. I am usually not a big fan of sativa’s, however, this bud is helping change that.

Medical Marijuana: Sour Diesel

Medical Marijuana: Sour Diesel

One thing I have to say about this Sour Diesel is don’t under estimate it! For only $20 a gram this is a powerful sativa/indica breed. Sour diesels have always been a crowd pleaser and now I know why.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Strain Sour Diesel
Type Sativa/Indica Hybrid
Pros Intense head/chest high
Cons Short lasting
Price $20/g, $65/8th
tFS Rating 8.0/10

The leaves are sticky with a heavy dusting of crystals. The purple isn’t very evident but the green is nice and intense in each bud. There is a medium-high skunky smell. Right from the smell you know this strain has something to prove. It hits hard in the face and stays in the chest area and lasts for at least a good hour and a half.

This bud packs a powerful punch so be careful. However, I recommend putting on some beats (Rza – Afro Samurai is a good choice,) sit back, and let it do its job!

I greatly enjoyed this strain and for the price it is a solid purchase. You definitely can’t go wrong with this find. If spotted, grab it!

Medical Marijuana: Real Deal Bubba Kush

January 30th, 2007 by Alex


I have come across many strains of sativa kush in my day, however, the Real Deal Bubba Kush is by far one of the best I have ever seen. Looks like I’m lucky that my first review is of some.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Strain Real Deal Bubba Kush
Type Indica dominant
Pros Intense all-over high
Cons Not more like it
Price $30/g, $80/8th
tFS Rating 9.5/10

The leaves are extremely sticky with a large coating of crystals. Each bud contains a slight shade of purple and there is a very sweet, almost citrus smell that lets you know a great taste is on the way.

Putting a flame to this plant is a delight. The flavor is intense yet smooth and packs a lot of body in the aftertaste.

Effects from this kush start at the head and progressively move outwards until a nice, intense high is rocking throughout your entire body. Please do not operate heavy machinery. Sit back, kick it and enjoy the ride!

The high lasts a long time, well over 2 hours. This kush is really potent and one of the best I’ve ever come across. However, it can milk the cash cow very easily.

Overall, this strain has it all. If you are looking for an intense, long lasting high then this is your bud. The pictures don’t even do it justice!

Medical Marijuana: Purple Passion

January 25th, 2007 by Alex


Right on the heels of dropping our Strawberry Soda review, it’s time for another tFS first – medical marijuana reviews. The inaugural herb to go under our microscope is Purple Passion. An indica dominant strain with a bite much bigger than it’s bark.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Strain Purple Passion
Type Indica dominant
Pros Long, relaxed body high
Cons None
Price $20/g, $65/8th
tFS Rating 8.5/10

The leaves are slightly sticky with a light coating of crystals. The purple isn’t very evident in each bud, but there is a medium-sweet smell that verifies this plant’s purple background.

Lighting up is when everything starts to improve. The flavor is light & smooth with no funk in the aftertaste.

Effects start around your back/shoulder areas and progressively move outwards until a nice, relaxed high kicks in. This is the perfect time to cue up some chill beats and take a seat, you’re going to be kicking it for a while. The high lasts a long time, well over 2 hours. The indica settles in and really pulsates your shoulders, body core and upper arms.

Overall, this strain has surprised me. The exterior hides what the smell and taste let you know instantly – this is some high quality bud.

Strawberry Soda

January 23rd, 2007 by Alex

Obey your thirst.

tFS is happy to present our first in a long line of medical marijuana product reviews. We believe that patients should know what is available at local dispensaries and know the difference between what is worth purchasing and what isn’t.

Our first review is a ‘drinkable’ simply called Strawberry Soda. It contains 45×660mg of active THC ingredient. This is not a small amount, and that’s reflected by the soda’s price – $25 a pop.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Category Medicinal Beverage
Company Generic
Pros Tastes good, Body high
Cons Subtle effects
Price $25.00
tFS Rating 5.5/10

As far as taste goes, this soda is very similar to diet Cherry 7-Up but with less carbonation. It’s hard to explain to anyone who hasn’t tried drinkables before, but you can almost feel the cannibinoids inside the soda. There is a definite dankness that becomes more pronounced once the aftertaste hits leaving a THC film in your mouth.

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.
