ACMB By Surefire Selections

Animal cookies x Milkbone

After trying the Zkittlez by Surefire selections I was eager to try more lucky for me @ftt had a few flavors including this ACMB. So this bag came as a 3.5g nug plus a .3 popcorn nug for a generous serving. The flower was dense and colorful reminded me of a splatter painting the way the purples, greens and speckled throughout a thick layer of trichomes with little strips of pistils the lined up like boundary lines on a map in a dark orange rust color. The structure of this bud was perfect and very easy to break apart and work with.

When smelling you get this doughy creamy smell with pine and musky undertones that really reminded me of some cereal milk that you just finished eating medicated cereal out of. When smoking the first thing I noticed was those old school cookie terps all doughy and gassy then finished of with funky creamy taste with a hint of maybe some chem genetics. The high was awesome definitely smacked me in the face and had me feeling goofy and silly and was a really enjoyable fun high that I was able to stay awake for. Loving Surefire selections right now and this strain was no different.

Sidewalk Sunday by Turtle Pie Co.

Had never heard of this company or strain but it sounded tasty so l made sure to get some. This was all small buds but they were caked in so much resin that it gave all the greens and purples this silver sheen that really is appealing to the eye. A lot of the buds look like purple tightly wrapped tulips. The little buds made it a pain to destem and I’m sure I impatiently smoked some stems at certain points.

The smell was amazing on this one very sweet and mixture of chocolate and milk terps but not chocolate milk terps. 🤷‍♂️ Some pungent skunk and musty terps with berries too. When you smoke you are met first with a sweet fruity terps but quickly bitters up and becomes very un enjoyable smoke that gagged me most times. I’m not sure what went wrong here but was unpleasant smoke. The high was nice and relaxing and aloud me to chill and relax after work. In talking to friends I heard turtle pie co had some good smoke so I’ll probably try again but this at the least was definitely a bad batch.

Citrus Sunrise By Wca

This was actually my first scoop of Wca in some time so it was my first with the new packaging the homey @percyterps insisted that I pick it up because he knows my taste. The appearance was consistent with what everything I’ve been seeing. Cold cure in a almost white color looking really wet and really clean.

The smell is definitely citrus mostly oranges but some tangy lime and grapefruit smells too. The taste when dabbing is oranges and citrus in such a balanced perfect way without that harsh feeling on your throat some strong orange terps leave. This was seriously my favorite citrus dab since pink lemonade by Ladybug. The high was great too being energetic slightly spacey and uplifting in a very fun way. I definitely see this as good smoke for getting shit done around the house. This one made me buy more from Wca almost immediately. If you like orange/citrus I highly recommend this one.

Gelonade by Connected

This is a very popular strain and I definitely get why. In the looks department she’s quite pretty. With dark almost black purples and some darker hunter green leaves and an orange red for the pistils that looks like rust this flower has some colors that really pop to the eye. This flower felt like it was cured ok and the structure was very easy to work with.

The nose on gelonade is always heavy on the lemon tree and this one was no different with that gassy smell of overripe citrus and definitely a creamy sweetness that really was enjoyable. When smoking the citrus pops the most with a definite creamy finish and that pungent gas that is just there the whole time. On a negative note there was this bitterness after you taste the creaminess that was unpleasant and really out of place thankfully it wasn’t too strong. The high was a nice relaxing one that you feel creep down from your eyes all the way to your feet. I wasn’t a space cadet but also had issues staying focused on anything I was trying to accomplish. Overall I’m pretty sure connected isn’t top shelf weed anymore this strain being the one possible exception as the flavors really do pop and the high is really good but it’s quite a shame what they charge vs the quality you get. I’ll probably be done buying connected for a bit until I see some new flavors or hear their reputation is improving.

Zlushee by Seven Leaves

After trying the Blueberry Zkittlez I was pretty stoked and wanted to try more by Seven Leaves. I saw the Zlushee and it sounded delicious. On an interesting note the bud tender was telling me that this grow focuses more on terpenes and taste than anything else and so the high might not be great. The reason that stood out to me is because I find weed that’s loud and taste good typically gets me the highest and reading about “The Entourage Effect “ it makes sense to me. This flower was interesting looking because most of the nugs were pea green with heavy coating of trichomes and then one nug is purped out with hunter green and purple leaves both had an average amount of pistils but on thee purple bud they definitely popped more. On a side note this came with a boveda pack and those things steal terps so I’m bummed they’re doing this.

When smelling its straight sweet sugar and fruit terps. Some pungent pine and musk in there too was a really great smell. When smoking it smokes a lot like zkittlez but even sweeter and more like candy taste than I’m used too. The high was nice uplifting and slightly energetic but then you start to mellow and really relax and I just sat there in a really good mood. Overall the flavors I’ve tried have all been good strong and smoked clean and will definitely try more. With the boveda packs I’d pay close attention to packaging dates and only grab something within about 3 maybe 4 weeks at most.

Chemist By Connected

When I saw this drop I got pretty excited and grabbed one for me and a buddy. The looks on this one are pretty nice. Definitely some purples and lime peel green going on and so many trichomes that it really changes the color of the flowers to almost a steel blue or grey. All the nugs were pretty small and made it a slightly obnoxious when breaking apart but overall the structure was workable.

The nose of this was doughy and sweet with a little bit of gas. Yeah a little bit of gas that surprised me too along with that wasn’t the common stinking pungent gas of chem d that I’m used to and was looking forward to. When smoking it really smoked like a biscotti with some sweet doughiness to it and some herbal tea and none of the chem d funk that is very prevalent in GMO. I have to say even though the taste wasn’t bad was quite good actually was still a disappointment because they didn’t pop like I expected them too. The high was nice and definitely a sit relax and don’t try to do anything to complicated type high it still wasn’t the slumper I was expecting or have read about. Overall this wasn’t as disappointing as most of the connected smoke over the last couple months it was also nothing special and very forgettable. Ask my buddy who had to keep reminding me that there was 2 strains from connected that weren’t completely trash. 🤦‍♂️😂

Xeno By Alien Labs

I was very interested in this strain as it seems to be Blue Zushi with a different name. Even though I’ve yet to review it l’m a fan of blue Zushi so my interest was peeked. I’m really disappointed with the pictures I took as it really doesn’t do this flowers justice. With hunter green as the main feature the large amount of trichomes make some of it look like a lighter more muted green similar to green tea extract in color. With rusty orange pistils popping everywhere this is some wonderful looking flower. Structure was great and easy to work with.

When smelling I noticed a sweetness that reminded me of smell of sweet tarts and skittles with some skunky pine and mint. When smoking I really noticed how clean it was smoking and no taste of chemical or bitterness and very sweet candy terps with a cooling sensation in my mouth but doesn’t quite taste minty. The high was energetic and uplifting and a great strain for being creative I noticed myself getting sidetracked and spacing out on ideas quite often. I was recently told that even though they’re owned by the same parent company as connected they have completely different grows and crew. I don’t know this to be true but with differences in quality and smoke I do believe it. I can’t really say that they’re always worth they’re price tag I can tell you they’re doing much better than their sister company.

Tropnana by The Real Cannabis Chris

I was really excited about this one because two of my favorite terp profiles are citrus and banana but I had it vaulted for 420. I was a little confused and thought that this was a Banana Og x with Tropicana Cookies but in actuality it was Tropicana x with Banana Punch. All in all similar terp profiles with citrus and bananas. When looking at this melt I’m always blown away it just looks different than other melts. It gets the nickname beach sand and margarita salt for a reason. Looks super clean and like there’s nothing but beautiful trichomes in there.

Looks super clean and like there’s nothing but beautiful trichomes in there. Smelling hash is always an interesting experience because I never know that expect. Some hash I feel barely smells like anything but then still has plenty of terps when you dab it. I’m not really sure what the mechanism is behind that but just what I’ve experienced. Tropnana was different you could smell the sharp smell of over ripe oranges and the sweetness and tropical smell of bananas. When dabbing it’s almost a perfect cross of overly ripe citrus and fresh baked banana bread. I was legit blown away by this taste combo it was just the right balance of the right flavors. For my 2nd time ever in weed terps I actually craved the flavors later like food. The high was an uplifting one the really sparked my creative side. Made me go from hanging out watching tv while dabbing to wanting to play music. So instead of sampling through a bunch of hash I made it through 2 flavors and spent the night playing guitar. I love when a strain does that to me. Almost like being stuck in a moment of creating. Nothing shocking here the real cannabis Chris puts out fire. This may have been one of his best yet.

Doughnut Joints By Holly Rollers

Surefire selections 1 g lemon up x hash engineers .3 SherBx1 hash. Surefire selections 2g Z41 x .5 hash engineers wedding cake.

This is a bit different reviewing some joints. I’ll start with the smaller one. The smell and dry pull was all lemon terps and had me very excited to smoke. Once smoking there were a couple issues. First and main problem was it was very hard to pull and wasn’t burning well. Also didn’t really create the famous doughnut hole that everyone looks for till the very end. The taste was nice on the flowers but couldn’t really taste the hash. I smoked with 4 people and had a decent head change from it not to bad considering the size and the amount of people I was sharing with.

The bigger one was a much better experience as first and foremost it smoked a lot easier and never felt plugged up. On the dry pull I could taste the sweet and gassy terps from the flowers. Once smoking you could taste the sweet and gassy terps but also the doughiness of the wedding cake came through along with that slightly different taste that happens when you smoke hash on top of a flower bowl. It was a really enjoyable combo and terps really combined to create a nice sweet cake and gas flavor that I think everyone would be stoked to try. I smoked with 2 people and had a strong high after that lasted for some time. Overall I think this is a very nice product that is being made with great source material. I would abandon the smaller ones and stick to the bigger ones for a better experience. I hear they’re doing even larger ones 3.5grams of flowers and 1 gram of hash and I’m going to try and get my hands on one ASAP.

Zkittlez By Surefire Selections

No fancy packaging here and none needed

I don’t know what it is about Zkittlez but it always looks like shit. 🤦‍♂️😂 This one has that same mids looking bush weed look to it. Might have had a little more frost than I’m used to seeing but yeah looking all mids. The cure was nice and the flowers were very easy and nice to work with.

The smell was amazing as this was easily some of the loudest Zkittlez I’ve ever had the pleasure to experience. Those all too familiar candy terps just smack you in the face with the sweetness and that bit of almost mint cooling on the exhale fucking love it. The other thing about this was it smacked. I mean everytime I smoked it I was oh shit I’m high. Very few strains make me feel that way with one bong rip and not even a Zkittlez dab has hit me like this one did. Not the super head rush of a dab but just a lot heavier and longer lasting. I will definitely grab more of this and wish it was the only Zkittlez I smoked.
