THC Bomb from Coastal Sun Farm

THC Bomb from Coastal Sun Farm via Kannabis Works on 8/21/2020. THC tested out to 26% (shout out to @scott_the_plant for making it happen). I only paid the tax on this one but it goes for $28 plus tax at Kannabis Works and $29 out the door at Catalyst. Having had an awesome experience with their Banjo, I was stoked to pop this second jar from Coastal Sun’s budget friendly Intelligent Greenhouse line up. The coloring on these plump shrub-like buds run the green gamut from chartreuse to british racing green, with near camouflaged pops pale twine colored pistils, and a thick layer of snow white and slightly yellowed triches.

The nose out of the jar is a light herbaceous floral with a muted mulling spice edge. On busting open a bud, the scent is essentially the same but a little louder, and there is this other aspect that smells sort of like unfinished wooden play blocks. Breaking it down by hand, my fingers get fairly triched out and smell of a mellow floral, while the grinds themselves have a very muted spiced floral with a hint of sugar sweetness and a vague fresh cut celery smell. I had a bit of a hard time pinning down the smells on this one, as they were present, but very muted and muddled. The dry pull on the j had a minor honeysuckle sweetness that faded fast and left behind a wooden paper like finish. The inhale on the bong was smooth and had a minor sugar sweet floral, whereas the joint was more of a very light cinnamon sweet, that became a tad harsh about three quarters of the way through. The exhale from the bong was a distant mulled spice cream but it wasn’t well defined, whereas the joint leaned more spicy with a dirty earthy aspect, but was also not too strong. Cross checking the flavors on my MV1 from Ghost Vapes at 170c it’s a slightly sweet floral and at 185c the floral gets a little more faint and has a minor skunky beer aftertaste. The headchange comes on quick but is mild and middle of the road in nature. Mentally I feel present and able to focus when needed, I’m able to stay on task and complete any given to do list, but it lacks that motivational get up and go that I look for in sativas. Physically I feel a slight haziness in the eyes, as well as a bit of a headband effect across the forehead, and my shoulders down into my arms have just a slight floaty tingle. All and all it’s a not so flavorful, yet fairly balanced smoke that would work well as a daily daytime driver, but isn’t something I’d put on my wake and bake list. For the ticket it’s still a solid deal, but if I had to choose between this and Coastal Sun’s Banjo, I’d lean toward the Banjo without a doubt.

Banjo from Coastal Sun Farm

Banjo from Coastal Sun Farm via Kannabis Works on 8/21/2020. THC tested out to 26% (shout out to Scott at BVO for making it happen). I paid the tax on this one, but I believe it’s 33ish out the door at Kannabis Works, and I’ve seen it go for $29 out the door at Catalyst. I’ve been told I need to get some more budget friendly bud on my page, so when Coastal Sun reached out to see if I was interested in giving their intelligent greenhouse herb an honest review, I jumped at the chance.  These portly porcine nugs are a mix of lime and olive greens with the occasionally darker sugar leaf, twine colored pistils, and a healthy layer of white and yellowing triches.

The nose out of the jar is a sweet, musty, and herbaceous with a citrus edge that gives it a very backyard orange vibe. On busting open a bud, the sweet orange really amps up and hits me similar to the way a SunnyD smells, but with a specifically minty lilt to it. When breaking it down by hand my fingers get absolutely coated in triches that leave an herbaceous mint smell behind, as where the grinds themselves have a sweet and sour citrus quality, similar to an orange hard candy that’s been lightly coated in pepper or chili powder.  The dry pull on the joint gives off a mild sweet orange with an herbaceous twist. The inhale is smooth, and on the bong is a sweet musty orange, whereas on the joint it’s essentially the same but has a minor toasted sugar aspect. The exhale is a sweet floral with a light orange tang on the bong and joint, however on the latter, the orange tang is expressed slightly harder. Cross checking the flavor on my MV1 from Ghost Vapes, at 170c it’s a semi-sweet floral with a distant hint of mint, where at 185c it’s a sweeter floral with a very light citrus touch. The headchange comes on quick, has a healthy slap, and a nice dose of energy to boot. Within a few seconds after taking the first hit, it had me up and out of my chair pacing around, desperately looking for anything to do and pour that new found energy into. It’s great for those days where you want to knock out all those annoying physical tasks you’ve been putting off and let pile up. Need to deep clean your apartment? Reorganize a closet? Sort through some old paperwork that you probably should have thrown away already? This is perfect for that. I started leaning on this batch heavily to start my mornings and it quickly became my go to sativa. I can absolutely see myself picking up this batch again as it was a great experience at a hella reasonable ticket. Excellent job Coastal Sun, this was some fantastic greenhouse, keep up the great work!
