Yummiez from High Season

Yummiez from High Season via High Season DTLA on 2/08/2020 (shoutout to Carlos for the assist). THC tested out to 23.65%. This was gifted to me but is currently listed on the High Season DTLA menu for $48.18 out the door. High Season got my attention at Secret Sesh with their Pound Cake, and in turn my review got their attention, which resulted in them blessing me with some of these Yummiez from their new Microbatch series. These small delicate buds are absolutely beautiful. The meat of the nug is a bright lime green with a copious amount of eggplant frosted tips, the occasional fiery orange pistil, and a coating of triches so thick it looks like they were slathered on and into every crevice with a mini trowel.

The nose out of the jar is floral and fresh with a sweet musty fruit and they’re all equally strong and battling for dominance. It sort of comes off like a muted candy perfume. When busting open a nug that fresh mint and pine element stays strong while the sugar sweetness and fruit are relegated to the background. When breaking it down by hand it powders out nicely, the sweetness turns back up and joins forces with the mint and pine and some additional floral notes, with a muted fruit in the background. It strikes me as a pleasant mix of winterfresh and pinesol. The dry pull on the jay is very minty with a touch of floral that slightly lingers on the tongue afterward. The inhale is smooth and has just a slight sweetness on both the joint and the bong but seemed more defined on the latter. The exhale is a muted fruity sweetness on the j but more of a sugar sweetness with a slight fuel background on the bong. Cross checking the flavors on my MV1 from @ghostvapesofficial I get an extremely minty and floral sensation, so much so that it actually had a cool peppermint feel on the inhale which was stronger than any flower I’ve tried on the vape yet. The headchange comes on quick and has a slightly sedative and spacey quality but doesn’t interfere with cognition to the point you’re unable to function. It’s got a euphoric aspect to it where I found myself in a positive mood, throwing on some music, and getting some things done I’d been putting off for a while. On a wake and bake it might be a little too heavy, but I found it be a very even keel experience as I wasn’t too locked up mentally or physically, but it definitely had a decent feel good thwap that stayed with me as I handled my day. I admit there’s a draw to the fact the batch is limited. Normally I’d say at the ticket it’s available for at High Season DTLA I’d have to see what else they have on offer to know if I’d cop it again, and I suppose that’s still true, but knowing it may never come back again definitely would hold weight in my decision. That said, if you like what you see and what I’ve said about Yummiez here, I’d get to High Season ASAP as who knows how much is left. It’s definitely some gorgeous flower and it’s got me interested to see what High Season’s next Microbatch has in store. Great work to the whole team at High Season!

Pound Cake from High Season

Pound Cake from High Season via Secret Sesh on 12/07/19. THC tested out to 27.63%. Purchased for $35 out the door. One of the last things I ended up grabbing at Secret Sesh, on recommendation from my buddy Dabberchan, was this Pound Cake on offer from High Season. The coloring on these dense buds is mostly a light lime green with rashes of deep rich purple and a thick blockade of triches that almost looks unreal. It’s as if a new species of spider capable of spinning trich webs came along and wrapped this bud up for safe keeping.

The nose out of the jar is extremely musty with a slightly acrid quality and reminds me of clothes that’ve been put in old wooden trunk and are just getting air for the first time years. When busting open a nug the mustiness lightens up a little bit and a fresh floral element makes presence known. When breaking the nug down by hand that fresh floral aspect steps to the foreground and the mustiness shifts to a plain cereal smell that fills out the backend. When dry pulling the joint I get a sugar sweetness up top followed by a fresh floral finish. The inhale was mostly smooth but started to get harsh toward the end of the joint. While smoking it, I picked up on an unripe banana taste on the way in with just a hint of toasted sweetness where as when smoking the bong it was more of a muted banana bread flavor. The exhale didn’t have too rich of a taste coming off either manner of smoking, it was a vague earthiness at best, with just a hint of dough on the bong side. When crossing checking the flavor on my MV1 from @ghostvapesofficial it hit with an extremely strong sweet floral taste which was like an amped up version of the dry pull on the J. The headchange comes on quick and with a slap that makes you want to take a seat. I feel like this is the sort of weed those anti drug commercials from the 90’s were trying to warn us about. The kind that will melt you into a couch and leave you paralyzed for life. Starting from the middle of your forehead, you feel the effect travel through your eyes and into your lower back, firmly locking you to your seat. It doesn’t interfere with cognition but your motivation level to do anything outside of sitting there and staring at the TV while spacing out will be at absolute zero. On the jar it says that this is “Great for an intense body high that helps put you in the mood. Use post “workout” to assist with muscle recovery”. I am not sure why they put the word workout in quotes but maybe they mean it as a double entendre. In any case, I don’t see how using this herb in that way would hurt exactly, but I don’t see how Pound Cake would be more beneficial than other indicas in that sense. I’d save this one for later in the evening as it is indeed a solid indica at a great ticket that has an intense thwap that will make any worries you have seem like they’re million miles away prior to putting you to bed. Great job on this one High Season, you’re definitely on my radar now.
