Cereal Milk from Cannabiotix via The Spot Fountain Valley on 10/22/2020 (Huge shoutout to Jake and Blake at The Spot for making it happen!). THC tested out to 33.01%. This was gifted to me by The Spot but it goes for $75 pre-tax on their menu but that’s about par for the course for the Brand. CBX has quickly gained a reputation over the past year for putting out some solid heat, but time and time again various people have been telling me Cereal Milk is THE one to try, so I was stoked to see it in my care package from The Spot . These surprisingly dense buds are a mix of emerald and asparagus greens, tight sporadic pops of ginger orange pistils, and a fairly thick layer of snow white triches that are so abundant at points they look like snow drifts contrasted against a wintery forest landscape.
The nose out of the jar is a musty spice with a semi-sweet cream in the background. Busting open a bud that cream shoots to the foreground and amps up that sugar sweetness, totally blasting out any semblance of must, and smells very similar to MAC but without that familiar berry component. Breaking it down by hand I really get the sense for its density. It leaves a minty heavy cream and a nice stick on the fingertips, where the grinds themselves hit super sugary sweet, to the point where my notes say “if someone made a sugar flavored starburst, this is probably how it would smell”. It also has this vaporous quality to it but it too is extremely sweet. When trying to sort through the scents I felt like I was experiencing olfactory hallucinations as I kept catching whiffs of “fruit” but they’d quickly be overwhelmed by straight sugar. The dry pull on the joint matched up with that experience perfectly, it was pure sugar with just a touch of cream and a hint of freshness, and I might even go so far as to describe it as sugary gas. The inhale is smooth and on the joint comes with a floral spice and a minty twist whereas the bong is more of a generic semi-sweet floral. The exhale on the joint is a sweet cream with extra sugar and a hint of spice, whereas the bong is a flatter more musty cream with a spicy backend, but it’s not nearly as well defined or flavorful. Cross checking the flavor on my MV1 from Ghost Vapes at 170c, I get a generally fresh mint pine floral that leaves a minor aftertaste on the tongue, as where at 185c it’s more of a heavy sweet floral with a perfume edge. The initial headchange comes on quick and has a feel good yet very spacey and forgetful buzz. On multiple occasions I’d be having a great time handling whatever task I was working on at the time, only to come to a point where I’d completely lose track of what I was just doing, and have to take a few moments think it out and hopefully remember so I could pick back up where I left off. At the start of my joint walk I felt lighter and there was a slight pep in my step, but over time I started to feel a weight settle into my body as well a slight headband effect, which was followed by a huge deep-breath-taking sense of relief. I’m sure the fact that it was Friday also helped, but there’s no doubt I found myself sighing in a satisfied way several times, glad that my work week was behind me and the weekend was just around the corner. Overall I really enjoyed my time with this batch of Cereal Milk, while it’s far too heavy for a wake and bake on days you hope to be productive, it’s a solid strain to end the day or kick off your weekend with and get your head in the right frame of mind. I can definitely see myself picking it up again, and while $75 pre-tax is more than I’d personally pay, it’s well within the proper bracket for its quality when compared against other menus out there. Excellent stuff CBX, you guys are definitely putting out some top quality for the rec market, keep up the great work!
