Platinum OG from Farmer and the Felon via Tropicanna on 6/12/2020. THC tested out to 18.73% THC (thanks to Jim Walsh and the awesome staff at Tropicanna for making it happen). This was gifted to me, but it goes for $65 plus sales tax, so roughly $73 out the door. I admit, when I saw this big black mylar bag on the shelf at Tropicanna I wasn’t sure what to expect, but intrigued by the brand’s mission to help the Last Prisoner Project I was more than on board to give it the once over. These tiny popcorn buds are a mix of lime and forest greens, dark brownish red pistils, and a fairly formidable coating of spiked yellowing triches.
The nose out of the jar is a sweet citrus coupled with fuel and a light musty undertone. Grinding it down by hand that sweet lemony fuel stays up top but a minor eucalyptus like vibe kicks around in the background. The dry pull on the jay is a light sweet lemon with a touch of fuel lining up with the scent profile perfectly. The inhale is smooth and has a very faint toasted lemon on the joint as where the bong is more of a grungy lemon must with a hint of sweetness. The exhale is on both is a light lemony earthy must that leans a just a little sweeter on the joint. Cross checking the flavors on my MV1 from @ghostvapesofficial at 170c I get a minty floral and at 185c it’s still strongly floral but less minty and has a faint skunky beer aftertaste. The headchange comes on fairly quick and gently lifts you up to a moderate hazy state. You feel a slight increase of pressure on your shoulders while your eyes glaze over, yet, you can remain focused with relative ease. It’s a mild smoke that feels really “general purpose” to me as it’s pretty complementary to any situation where you don’t want to be baked out of your skull but prefer to be lit yet present. If you are looking for the best of the best, this isn’t going to be it, but you’re looking for a decent middle of the road budget smoke then I would say you can’t beat the ticket on this half zip bag that goes for the same as some top shelf jars out there. If what’s in this batch is evident of the quality coming out of Farmer and the Felon, with the added fact that some of the dough helps free people behind bars for cannabis related offenses, then I can definitely see myself grabbing more in the very near future. Props to the whole Farmer and the Felon team for putting out a really decent product at a bargain ticket in the name of a great cause!
