Topanga Canyon OG from the Jungle Boys via Los Angeles Farmers on 2/04/2020. THC tested out to 25.33%. Purchased for $25 out the door. I’ve heard good things about Topanga Canyon so when I saw that Farmers had it on the low shelf I was absolutely on board to give it a whirl. The nugs in this particular bag appear small and shrub like. They’re a mix of lime and forest greens with tiny pops of brownish red pistils and a frosting of golden yellow triches that give the surface a slight glow and make the coloring hard to pin down.
The nose out of the bag is an extremely pleasant mix of fuel and lemon that gives me muted eucalyptus vibes. On busting open a nug a mint emerges, joining the fuel in the foreground and leaving the lemon to battle for dominance, shifting into more of a lemon cleaner scent. When breaking it down by hand, I get a delicious smelling lemon candy fuel that hits me as a mash up of Vic’s vapor rub and lemon hard candy. The inhale is smooth, and from the j I get an earthy sweet lemon experience, as where the bong offers more of that fuel aspect up top. On the exhale from both I got a tongue smacking sweet lemon fuel with a lemon water aftertaste but on the bong there was just a little less sugar sweetness and you feel it the septum. Cross checking the flavor on my MV1 from @ghostvapesofficial the sweet lemon fuel is so strong that it tangs the tongue on the way in as well as leaving a fairly long aftertaste. It reminded me a lot of the taste experience I had with Marathon OG from @thecurecompany. The headchange comes on fast with a nice thwack and a brings a bit of energy with it. There’s a touch of haziness that hits behind the eyes and has a bit of a spacey quality that puts some distance between you and your cares. While functional conversationally I found focusing somewhat problematic. It didn’t derail my train of thought so much as grease the track making it difficult to gain traction and progress forward. Even that sentence was difficult to put together coherently when in its brain fogging grasp. That one too. Essentially, you’ll want to avoid smoking it when writing under a deadline, but for most activities it’s pretty awesome. I really liked Topanga Canyon OG, I think it’s a great anytime smoke with a healthy long lasting smack that leaves you dazed in an enjoyable way, and it’s pretty tasty to boot. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this flower being harvested back in August of 2019, but it really held up well, and for the ticket I’d have to say I’d pick this up again in a heartbeat. Great work to the Jungle Boys on this one!
