Chem Roll from Panacea Farm via OC 3 Dispensary on 10/29/2020 (Huge shoutout to awesome folks and Panacea and OC3 for making it happen). THC tested out to 32.6%. This goes for $55 pre-tax but if you pick up an ounce of Panacea you get 25% off at OC3 which should basically wipe out the tax. As soon as I read the review @1s_th3_hype_r3al put out on Panacea’s Chem Roll I knew I needed to get my hands on some, so needless to say, when I found it in my OC3 sample pack I was hella stoked. This particular batch consisted of two nugs that, visually, reminded me of Danny Devito and Arnold Schwarzenegger on the poster for the movie Twins. The surface of this obvious champion and his little pal are a patchwork of lime and fern greens, tightly matted cream orange pistils, and an understated coating of triches that run the gamut from canary yellow to crystal clear.
The nose out of the jar is a sweet must with fruit and a baked good quality that almost comes off similar to a homemade marmalade on toast. Busting open a bud, that sweet pastry takes center stage with a touch of cream, a mint pine backing and a hint of must. Breaking it down by hand I get the sense of sweet pastry, floor cleaner and a distant hint of creamy must on my fingertips, while the grinds themselves are a complex mix of extremely sweet fruit coupled with a gorgeous gassy tone that tamps down that cloying fruit in just the right way. The baked good and floor cleaner elements are also present on the backend, with the smell coming off as some kind of foriegn candy made from natural ingredients, or a berry pie consisting of something uncommon like Marionberries. A dry pull on the joint comes with a sweet half fruit, half mint floral, with a touch of distant musty cream underneath. The inhale is smooth and on the joint is a semi sweet floral with a fruity echo and a peppery twist, whereas the bong is a less distinct distant peppery cream. The exhale on the bong is a sweet mustiness with that peppery tang, while the joint comes off with a distant sweet fruitiness first, followed by that same musty peppery tang with cream quality lingering in the wings. Cross checking the flavors on my Ghost Vapes MV1, at 170c it hits very piney with just a touch mint and floral kicking around in the background, while at 180c the pine still comes through but is offset by a strengthened floral taste yet the pine remains dominant as it lingers for an inordinate amount of time after the hit. The headchange comes on quick with a pleasant hazy headed slap with a bit of an ASMR like tingle down the top of the spine. Mentally, I found that I could maintain focus easily but I quickly realized my awareness had been obliterated. At one point I’d let the cat outside to watch some dogs beefing on the street and then went back to writing. Normally I’d be cognizant enough to check on her frequently to make sure she hadn’t bolted, but I’d been so focused on the computer that when I snapped back to reality, it felt like some massive amount of time gone by and I thought I’d neglected her. I went to check the deck and she was gone but after a moment I realized she was just chilling in the kitchen. The point of this little anecdote being I still can’t tell you how much time passed between the time she’d gone outside and the point I found her in the kitchen and I found that to be a recurring theme with this batch. Over time a sedated feeling starts to kick in, and while I don’t exactly feel sleepy, I do feel like kicking back and getting some use out of my Netflix account. All of that said I enjoyed my time with this Chem Roll and I could see myself picking it up again, especially if I were in the market for some lazy Sunday or rainy day kind of herb, as the buzz is quite conducive to those times when it’s best to stay inside and relax. Great job once again Panacea. Keep up the fantastic work!
