Zen Zai by Way Up and B-Eazy buds.

Super stoked that I was asked to review these flowers by B-eazy himself. I had seen the flavor popping up here and there in my stories and was definitely curious, as it was a strain I haven’t even had the opportunity to smoke yet, let alone review. Visually the flowers were quite striking, with nice contrasting greens, a little bit of purple, and sporadic rust-colored pistils tucked in tightly. This had a healthy coating of resin and great traditional structural appearance. The cure was slightly dry, but still sticky and stinky.

When I first opened the jar, the aroma was creamy gas and sweet candy terps, as well as some savory pepper terps. But interestingly enough, when breaking it apart, some additional aromas came through. I picked up on some tropical overripe terps that I first thought of as papaya, but then realized were closer to the citrus over-ripeness of Tropicana cookies, with hints of the papaya too. Still, quite gassy and has a skunky funk that leads to some complex smells, which I really enjoyed. When smoking, the prevalent flavor was creamy gas, with a slight undertone of sweet fruit, which grew stronger at the end. I definitely appreciated the clean, smooth smoke on this, especially since I was just recovered from pneumonia when I sampled it. If the smoke was rough, my lungs for sure would have reacted from being so sensitive, so it’s been really nice to have this strain to help my lungs get back in shape. The high was relaxing and uplifting, a mellow to medium strength head change that should please new smokers and experienced smokers alike. I definitely felt it first behind the eyes and in heavy eyelids, progressing to a full relaxing warmth over my whole body. Overall, this was a really solid smoke with a high I feel could appeal to a broad range of smokers if the goal is to chill and relax. I enjoyed the unique terp profile and great clean smoke. After taste testing a few flavors from these guys, I’ll definitely be watching for what they’re putting out next.
