Bugsy from The Backpack Boyz and 5points LA via The Cannon Co on 2/11/2020. No Testing info presented on the bag. This bag was gifted to me but I have seen an 8th go for $40-50 out the door at Seshes. Bugsy has been on my watchlist for quite some time now so I was stoked to see it in my sample pack. These extremely dense nugs are a gorgeous mix of fluorescent lime greens with deep rich purples that highlight the contours of the bud similar to the way trim color can accent the architecture of a building. Creamy burnt orange pistils coupled with an impressive coating of yellowish white triches, stacked on each other in every available crevice like snow drifts against abandoned buildings in the dead of winter, give the bud as a whole an inviting fuzzy glow.
The nose out of the bag is a sugar sweet cream with a subtle mint and just a touch of fruit. Busting open the bud the minty amps up slightly to match with the sweet cream and reveals a mustiness in the background. Breaking it down by hand the scent of mint becomes overwhelming while that sugar sweet cream fights to be noticed in the background but the mint absolutely dominates the arena. When dry pulling the J there’s a delicious sweet mint that lingers on the lips with a floral quality that fills out the background with a wisp of fruit. The inhale is smooth and on the joint I picked up on a minty hash quality, while the bong offered more of an earthy floral taste, with a hint of mint in the background. The exhale off the joint and the bong both served up a sweet minty cream with a fairly long lasting mentholated aftertaste. Cross checking the flavor on my MV1 from @ghostvapesofficial mint remains the dominant force with that floral sensation padding out the background. The headchange comes on quickly and has a really enjoyable thwap to it. It smacks you in the forehead and radiates behind your eyes and down into your body. While it doesn’t couch lock you up exactly, and you can maintain a conversation and stay focused if need be, it does have that motivation sapping/soul settling aspect that’s fantastic for when you’re trying to wind down after a long day. In the end, I think Bugsy is a great afternoon / evening smoke and for the ticket I’ve seen it available for in the sesh scene, I’d have no problem picking it up again. Great job once again to the Backpack Boyz/5 Points LA and the Cannon Co. Keep cranking out these hits!
