Kimbo Kush from 710 Labs via Los Angeles Farmers on 2/04/2020. THC tested out to 17.84%. Purchased by my girlfriend for $46 out the door. The Valentine’s day gift flowers continue! As there were only two strains of 710 Labs flower on deck at Farmers my awesome lady figured we might as well cop them both and see what they’re all about. These dense nugs are extremely photogenic making it easy to snap some great pics. The buds are small yet bulbous. The surface is mix of forest and lime greens with rashes of purple coupled with flares of wild and wiry reddish brown pistils and a formidable fortified layer of golden glistering triches.
The nose out of the jar has a deep earthy spice with a musty backend. Busting open a bud amps up that earthy spiciness but also brings a sugar sweetness into the picture with just a hint of a fruity element. Breaking it down by hand reveals an interesting turn as I get more a sugar sweetness coupled with a dingy waxy element that really strikes me as very similar to the smell of a chocolate tootsie roll. The dry pull of the j also had a sweet waxy musty quality that gave me those same chocolate tootsie roll vibes and had a sugar sweet zing of an aftertaste that lingered on the tongue momentarily. The inhale is smooth and on the bong also has muted echos of that tootsie roll flavor, while on the joint, it was more of a subtle sugar sweet floral with a hint of mint. The exhale from both the j and bong were an understated savory yet earthy spice. Cross checking the flavors on my MV1 from @ghostvapesofficial I do pick up on a hint of that chocolate along with a floral sensation up top that shifts into more of a fresh mint on the exhale. The headchange does come on quick but is very gentle in its nature. It rings your bell slightly and gives you that floaty headed feeling coupled with a mild headband effect while putting a bit of pressure on your shoulders and upper back. It’s a very functional effect, you can have a conversation and not lose your place or space out, as well as dig in to any critical thinking task at hand. It’s a very capable buzz that pairs well with an afternoon of responsibility as it has a pleasant effect that won’t leave you smashed into the couch or helplessly lost in your own thoughts. While I’m always on the hunt for new cultivars to review, for the ticket my girlfriend picked this up for at Farmers, I could see myself easily doing it again if I were specifically in the mood for a mild afternoon/early evening smoke. Great job to the folks at 710 Labs for putting out some high quality and truly beautiful flower.
Bluniverse from 710 Labs via Los Angeles Farmers on 2/04/2020. THC tested out to 16.15%. Purchased for $46 out the door. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on some 710 Labs flower for a while now but the low availability and high ticket have made it difficult to acquire in the past. My awesome girlfriend decided to surprise me when we stopped into LA Farmers by hooking me up with this Bluniverse as an early valentines day gift. These nugs are near breathtakingly beautiful. The coloring shifts from a light lime green that cascades into shades of deep purple, it appears a dark azure blue with the help of a healthy layer of white glistening triches, all contrasted against creamy candlelight orange pistils. It’s the kind of midnight blue you find in the sky on a clear day right after the sun has completely set.
The nose out of the jar is mostly musty with a hint of sweetness and gas. On busting open a nug I get a touch of some sweet fruity notes that seem to push the mustiness back with just a tad of that electric 9-volt on your tongue edge. When grinding it down by hand I pick up on a deep fruity berry-like scent battling that electric musty quality for dominance. On the inhale from both the bong and the joint I get a bit of light grungy must coupled with a muted sugar sweetness. On the exhale from the joint I get mostly that musty quality with a 9 volt after taste, it was fairly vague and hard to pin down, and was a little bit harsh on the throat as it was nearing its end. The bong didn’t offer much else in terms of flavor but I noticed it did hit me in the septum and make me slightly watery eyed. Cross checking the flavor on my MV1 from @ghostvapesofficial I get a very minor floral taste with just a hint of mint but fairly muted and nondescript overall. The headchange hits quickly but comes on mild at first and ramps up overtime. It’s reasonably middle of the road in terms of effects, it doesn’t bring any sort of energy with it, but doesn’t hold you back from completing any tasks you might have on deck either. The one constant I noticed was that I’d space out fairly frequently as the effect was gaining traction but it didn’t stick around too long, and left me feeling sort of meh, generally speaking. For me it’s one of those highs where it’s just kind of there, it’s doing it’s job but there’s nothing unique about it, it feels very perfunctory in that sense. I have no previous experience with Bluinverse so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but if this is typical of it’s effects, it’s not really a strain I care to revisit. It’s clearly skillfully cultivated, and some of the most photogenic herb I’ve ever come across but even at the very fair ticket at which I copped it, with the incredible amount of variety on the California marketplace these days I just don’t see myself doing it again.
Z Money preroll from 710 Labs via South Coast Safe Access on 10/26/19. Purchased for $22 out the door. I usually don’t review prerolls this way but after gutting the last 710 labs noodle doink I got my hands on, I was really curious as to how it would smoke, and I received a few DMs to the same effect so I thought I’d do a quick write up on the experience. The tube has a small sticker wrapped around it with a note from Brad Melshenker, the founder of 710 Labs, saying that they hand roll these joints they way they would roll their own personal joints from top quality material. Having already broken one of these open I wholeheartedly believe that to be the case.
This z money j had a savory scent and from the outside and when I took a dry pull it had a fresh ground pepper like zing. It was powerfully flavorful and reminded me of the spices in a cup of noodles flavor packet in the best possible way. On smoking I picked up on a pleasant earthy hash like taste that reminded me of some old school hashplant I used to get back in the early 2000s. It smoked smooth all the way down to the noodle. I was thoroughly smacked by the time I finished the j and it was creeper on top of it so I was essentially obliterated 30 minutes later. A Little Caesars hot n ready and an ice cream sandwich later I was done for the night. While I can’t say I’ll be picking them up all the time as I can’t afford it personally, I feel like the 710 Labs noodle doink is a well crafted quality experience that has a personal touch at a very reasonable ticket. It’s a welcome and unique entry in a market place that’s currently flooded with machined packed soulless joints filled with garbage flower and trim ground to dust to hide their poor quality and sold only for the highest profit. 710 Labs, you guys are no bullshit, keep up the fantastic work.
