I am conflicted about Terdz. Deeply conflicted.
On the one hand, this is an incredibly stupid name and package. Like – way beyond the pale. And if you’re going to mimic Nerdz, how could you not have the same split container with two strains in it? Seems like a wasted opportunity. Even Nerdz Breakfast Cereal had the wisdom to understand what it was that made the packaging unique and worthy of mimicry.
On the other hand – this bud is hard to differentiate from most of the other top shelf strains I have looked at lately; it has well trimmed potent buds, a strong and pleasant diesel smell, and it got me super high.
But isn’t there a point at which the branding matters a little? I mean – all things being equal I would just pick another strain over this one purely based on how silly this bag is. It’s named Terdz. Terdz!
The reason Terdz is on the menu is that I went to a new dispensary – a place called Nug in Alameda – to try it out.
When I go to a new dispensary, I always ask for a recommendation from the budtender on what their favorite bud is. In this case, because they recommended a strain that I feel is below the quality of other jars I saw on the shelf next to this, I am unlikely to go back. There’s no way for me know for sure, but in my experience it seems like smaller chain dispensaries push weed that has better margins for them over weed that is of higher quality. I suspect this is policy and not the individual making a choice for themselves, but it makes it hard for me to trust all recommendations.
In conclusion I reluctantly admit that this is pretty good weed. It has some small aesthetic issues, but if I rolled it into a joint next to like, The French Laundry from last week, it would be very difficult to tell the difference blind.
