Woah-si-woah from Top Shelf Cultivation

Woah-Si-Woah from Top Shelf Cultivation via Show Grow Long Beach on 4/27/2020. THC tested out to 29% THC. This typically goes for about $65-70 before tax. I have been hearing nothing but praise for Woah-Si-Woahs over the past year or so, but every time I attempted to get my hands on this strain it managed to elude me, however thanks to some help from Travis at Show Grow I was finally able to pin it down and see what’s what. These large dense nugs are mostly lime and olive green with splashes of aubergine, some short scarce brownish-orange pistils, and a lining of bird spike triches that cover every millimeter of available surface area.

The nose out of the jar hits me as rubber at first but widens out into a sweet vanilla gas. On busting open a nug, the sweet vanilla gas becomes more evident, while a pine quality emerges accompanied by a hint of mint. When breaking it down by hand a strong smell of mint and pine cling to my fingers whereas the grinds themselves have a sugar sweet mint pine fuel quality. The dry pull on the joint has a sweet mint taste that’s so vaporous it has a semi eucalyptus vibe. The inhale is smooth and has a minty rubber taste on the joint as where the bong offers more of a straight rubber eraser taste. The exhale from the joint is a vanilla pine fuel with a floral back end on the joint where the bong offers a similar experience but is notably lacking the vanilla aspect. Cross checking the flavors on my MV1 from @ghostvapesofficial at 170c I got a very rich minty pine with a floral back end. I only had enough material left to fill a single crucible but my guess is that low temp is the way to go on this one given its terpene profile. The headchange comes on quick and with a very noticeable thwap. At times, when I’d be smoking other herbs that just weren’t quite getting me on the level I was looking for, and I found myself leaning on Woah-si-woah to get the job done. It makes its way into your eyes at first, hazing them over as it works down into your body and firmly keeps you planted on the couch despite feeling fairly mentally alert. I could think well but struggled to express those thoughts verbally and to do anything other than sit, stare think really. Over time the pressure increases and if you’re not loaded up on coffee or energy drinks you’ll find yourself weed napping after about an hour. All and all, Woah-si-Whoa did not disappoint as it really is a powerful herb that packs an enjoyable day-ending wallop and while I would be on board to cop it again and make it part of my permanent headstash, the only thing stopping me is the damage it would do to my wallet. If that’s not an issue for you then I’d say go for it, you’ll have no regrets picking this one up, even if you’re budget minded and on the fence about grabbing it I’d say you should give it a shot at least once. 

Candyland from Top Shelf Cultivation

Candyland from Top Shelf Cultivation via Evergreen Santa Ana on 12/21/19. THC tested out to 32.2%. Purchased for $67.20 plus tax. Early last month @manuallyf0cused told me I had to try some Candyland by Top Shelf Cultivation, so when I saw Evergreen had it in stock, I decided to throw down and see what’s what. The colors on these dense bulbous buds vary from nug to nug with a patchwork of light and dark green to rich deep purples, with impacted rusty red pistils, and a glistening layer of triches that fill every available space and crevice.

The nose out of the jar is a deep rich sweetness with a grape like edge and a thick rubber back end. On busting open the nug the sweetness takes center stage, bringing a lemon-ish mint quality with it, while pushing that rubber scent back just a bit more. When breaking it down by hand the rubber and sweet mint aspects seem to come together in a unique way that hits me as a combo of new rain boots and cotton candy. When dry pulling the jay I get a really deep sweetness with a hint of earth. The inhale was smooth from the bong and the J and I picked up on a hint of toasted fruit from both but it wasn’t too specific. The exhale from the J had a candy grape vibe that reminded me of Big League Chew while on the bong I caught a similar flavor but it had a deep rubber aftertaste. Crossing checking the flavor on my MV1 from @ghostvapesofficial I got a very potent flavor that I’d describe as a pleasant version of industrial cleaner with an intense floral aftertaste. The headchange comes on swiftly and brings some good energy with it. At first it’s very clear headed and you’ll have no issue staying active and remaining on task however as the initial impact wears off I’ve noticed this slightly sedative effect that makes me want to take a seat for a few minutes and just relax. I really enjoyed this batch of Candyland, it ticks nearly all the boxes, the only thing I’d wrestle with on picking it up again is the ticket as there are a few choice sativas out there that are bit easier on the wallet. That said, if you find it at a ticket you feel comfortable with I highly recommend it as it’s a solid tasty sativa with some decent stamina that was clearly grown with expertise. Great work to the Top Shelf Cultivation crew, can’t wait to get my hands on those Woah-si-whoas!
