Kimbo Kush from 710 Labs via Los Angeles Farmers on 2/04/2020. THC tested out to 17.84%. Purchased by my girlfriend for $46 out the door. The Valentine’s day gift flowers continue! As there were only two strains of 710 Labs flower on deck at Farmers my awesome lady figured we might as well cop them both and see what they’re all about. These dense nugs are extremely photogenic making it easy to snap some great pics. The buds are small yet bulbous. The surface is mix of forest and lime greens with rashes of purple coupled with flares of wild and wiry reddish brown pistils and a formidable fortified layer of golden glistering triches.
The nose out of the jar has a deep earthy spice with a musty backend. Busting open a bud amps up that earthy spiciness but also brings a sugar sweetness into the picture with just a hint of a fruity element. Breaking it down by hand reveals an interesting turn as I get more a sugar sweetness coupled with a dingy waxy element that really strikes me as very similar to the smell of a chocolate tootsie roll. The dry pull of the j also had a sweet waxy musty quality that gave me those same chocolate tootsie roll vibes and had a sugar sweet zing of an aftertaste that lingered on the tongue momentarily. The inhale is smooth and on the bong also has muted echos of that tootsie roll flavor, while on the joint, it was more of a subtle sugar sweet floral with a hint of mint. The exhale from both the j and bong were an understated savory yet earthy spice. Cross checking the flavors on my MV1 from @ghostvapesofficial I do pick up on a hint of that chocolate along with a floral sensation up top that shifts into more of a fresh mint on the exhale. The headchange does come on quick but is very gentle in its nature. It rings your bell slightly and gives you that floaty headed feeling coupled with a mild headband effect while putting a bit of pressure on your shoulders and upper back. It’s a very functional effect, you can have a conversation and not lose your place or space out, as well as dig in to any critical thinking task at hand. It’s a very capable buzz that pairs well with an afternoon of responsibility as it has a pleasant effect that won’t leave you smashed into the couch or helplessly lost in your own thoughts. While I’m always on the hunt for new cultivars to review, for the ticket my girlfriend picked this up for at Farmers, I could see myself easily doing it again if I were specifically in the mood for a mild afternoon/early evening smoke. Great job to the folks at 710 Labs for putting out some high quality and truly beautiful flower.
