Bluniverse from 710 Labs via Los Angeles Farmers on 2/04/2020. THC tested out to 16.15%. Purchased for $46 out the door. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on some 710 Labs flower for a while now but the low availability and high ticket have made it difficult to acquire in the past. My awesome girlfriend decided to surprise me when we stopped into LA Farmers by hooking me up with this Bluniverse as an early valentines day gift. These nugs are near breathtakingly beautiful. The coloring shifts from a light lime green that cascades into shades of deep purple, it appears a dark azure blue with the help of a healthy layer of white glistening triches, all contrasted against creamy candlelight orange pistils. It’s the kind of midnight blue you find in the sky on a clear day right after the sun has completely set.
The nose out of the jar is mostly musty with a hint of sweetness and gas. On busting open a nug I get a touch of some sweet fruity notes that seem to push the mustiness back with just a tad of that electric 9-volt on your tongue edge. When grinding it down by hand I pick up on a deep fruity berry-like scent battling that electric musty quality for dominance. On the inhale from both the bong and the joint I get a bit of light grungy must coupled with a muted sugar sweetness. On the exhale from the joint I get mostly that musty quality with a 9 volt after taste, it was fairly vague and hard to pin down, and was a little bit harsh on the throat as it was nearing its end. The bong didn’t offer much else in terms of flavor but I noticed it did hit me in the septum and make me slightly watery eyed. Cross checking the flavor on my MV1 from @ghostvapesofficial I get a very minor floral taste with just a hint of mint but fairly muted and nondescript overall. The headchange hits quickly but comes on mild at first and ramps up overtime. It’s reasonably middle of the road in terms of effects, it doesn’t bring any sort of energy with it, but doesn’t hold you back from completing any tasks you might have on deck either. The one constant I noticed was that I’d space out fairly frequently as the effect was gaining traction but it didn’t stick around too long, and left me feeling sort of meh, generally speaking. For me it’s one of those highs where it’s just kind of there, it’s doing it’s job but there’s nothing unique about it, it feels very perfunctory in that sense. I have no previous experience with Bluinverse so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but if this is typical of it’s effects, it’s not really a strain I care to revisit. It’s clearly skillfully cultivated, and some of the most photogenic herb I’ve ever come across but even at the very fair ticket at which I copped it, with the incredible amount of variety on the California marketplace these days I just don’t see myself doing it again.
