Zkittlez Cake #10 from The Jungle Boys via Los Angeles Farmers on 12/17/19. THC tested out to 23.67%. Purchased for $200 an ounce after tax. I haven’t been to Los Angeles Farmers since the prop 215 days, but when my fellow reviewer @skinupthen clued me in to a killer deal on this Zkittlez Cake pheno, I made it a priority to swing by on my way through the downtown area and I’m glad I did. These moderately dense buds are comprised mostly of lime green with patches of dark forest green dipping into subtle yet rich purples at times with an abundance of amber pistils and a hefty coating of large yellowing triches.
The nose out of the bag is a muted lemon lime with a musty wet grass in the background. When busting open a bud the sweet lemon lime scent amps up with the mustiness remaining in the background with an added pizza dough like quality. The buds break down by hand really well, it’s almost like they want to be rolled up in a j so they give little resistance, but they do leave a healthy trich grime on your finger tips. The grounds hit my nose as a sweet lime with a slightly nutty dough and just a hint of vanilla that’s very reminiscent of a Peruvian alfajor cookie before it gets the dulce de leche and powered sugar treatment. I realize that description may only make sense to a limited audience so imagine the taste of a very soft and crumbly butter cookie with a lime zest edge and it’s a good approximation. When dry pulling a j I get a very strong fruity candy sweetness that hits my tongue similar to a pink starburst. The inhale is smooth and I pick up on a touch of sweet citrus along with notes of pancakes and syrup, while on the exhale I get a really strong citrus that leaves a Sprite like aftertaste in my mouth. Crosschecking the flavor on my @ghostvapesofficial MV1 I get a strong tangy lime taste on both the inhale and exhale along with a hint of toasted sugar. The headchange is noticeable immediately as you feel the weight of the world instantly vanish. I don’t want to overhype it but I feel like Zkittlez Cake #10 is essentially a weighted blanket for your brain. There’s a warmth that wraps itself around the front of your head and radiates into the eyes and tops of the cheeks all the way down to the base of the neck. You’ll find yourself happily spacing off into your own thoughts, laughing at your own dumb jokes, and really digging that new song you just found out about and can’t stop playing on repeat. It’s the type of herb that just seems to turn up the brightness on life a little bit in general. While it’s a little heavy for a wake and bake in my opinion I’d say it’s a fantastic smoke at any time of day. The current ticket makes it an incredible deal, one that has me thinking about going to back to LA Farmers at least once a day for fear they’ll run out, as it is the best deal in the recreational market that I’ve come across yet. Excellent work to the entire Jungle Boys team! I’m thoroughly impressed and feel dumb for sleeping on you guys for so long in the prop 64 era despite your stores only being an hour away. I’ll definitely be back soon.
