Figment from Fig Farms via direct to consumer delivery on 8/11/2020. THC tested out to 25.38%. I just had to pay the tax on this one but I’ve seen fig go for about $65 out the door on average. Having recently read a glowing and extremely thorough write up on Figment from @1s_th3_hyp3_r3al I was hella stoked to see it pop up next in my review rotation. This jar was composed of one absolutely massive champion bud, and it’s tiny companion, which brought to mind old school memories of Cait Sith in Final Fantasy VII. The surface quickly shifts between fern and moss greens with rashes of deep rich aubergine, pops of sunset orange pistils, and piles of pristine triches that when mounted together in mass give the bud a peep yellow tinge.
The nose out of the jar is a musty floral and eraser rubber with an acrid yet semi sweet lean and a hint of freshness. Busting open the bud, a sweet fruit emerges that’s really hard to pin down, but hits my senses as an overall fruit punch with a grape lean and herbaceous freshness. Grinding it down by hand, I get a sense for how incredibly sticky it is, evidenced even further when ripping it apart as it spins some of the longest trich webs I’ve ever seen. It leaves a musty cream on the fingertips, while the grinds themselves have a beautiful subtle sweetness that comes off equal parts fruity and floral, and when taken together as a whole smell like a mild watermelon scented candle. The dry pull on the joint has floral sugar sweetness with a mentholated edge. The inhale is smooth, and on the bong I get toasted marshmallow and graham cracker, whereas the joint is more of a general toasted sweetness. On the exhale, that musty sweet rubber makes a come back on the bong, but the joint is more of a musty floral with a muted savory edge. Cross checking the flavor on my MV1 from Ghost Vapes at 170c, I get a touch of cooling on the tongue with a mild floral tinge and a piney aftertaste, and at 185c that same minor cooling effect is there but the floral is a bit less defined. The headchange comes on strong and will throw you for a bit of a spacy loop. In my notes I described it as “being in a constant state of feeling like I forgot something”, as I’d find myself going on autopilot mid-task frequently, to snap back to reality a short while later with only a vague notion of what I was doing just moments before. On a joint walk I found it put a pep in my step while I tangled with a slight bout of paranoia, keeping my eyes on the horizon for cops or parents with kids, or anyone else that might be offended by the pungent aura that announced my presence to the neighborhood. As time passed, a much more chill vibe set in as my body relaxed and felt just a touch floaty, and with that spacy aspect now in full effect the second half of the walk seemed much quicker than the first. I really dug this batch of Figment, and if I had to pick between the two, I think I like it just a touch more than I did the Holy Moly! which is an impressive feat. The truth is in my personal experience, each Fig Farms strain I’ve tried is better than the last, and it’s no doubt some of the most immaculate weed on the recreational market. I can’t wait to get my hands on more. Great work once again Fig Farms, you guys are amazing at what you do, keep up the fantastic work!
