My initial impression is that this weed is both underpriced and overpackaged, which is a weird combination. Usually the bud that looks all weird and flashy is garbage and has a significant markup. Here the bud is like really fluffy, top shelf, super fresh and awesome, and it’s priced at like middle shelf for the region. Yet more evidence that price and quality have a tenuous relationship at best in the weed industry.
Jack Herer is a strain I have sampled before. This was a particularly fine example. Really strong almost assaulting sharp smell with hints of lemon and lime.
When I was 19 I drove out to San Francisco on Christmas break with a friend from Boston. We drove there in 52 hours and back in 47. It was a hell of a time. We stayed in the Mission at the apartment of another friend who was actually back east. So we had this little place to ourselves. There was a really good donut shop nearby.
We rented a Sony Playstation and just smoked weed in this kid’s apartment all day. It was awesome. And we bought our weed from the hippies on Haight. I was too nervous but my buddy would go pick up like an eighth for 50 bucks of this bright green space weed. And that’s what this bud is reminding me of – the space weed on Haight in the late nineties. I was only here for a couple weeks and I am no expert but there you have it.
This bud was so much fun I’m not even going to make fun of the box very much. I will say I think that people who are nostalgic for the era of cassettes may be forgetting how great digital music is and how much more various and interesting our relationship with music is now that it has broken out of the top 40 paradigm. But the silly box seems to be working in this case, so I say go with it. My one actual criticism on the packaging is that this bud was too good for a bag and deserved a jar.
