I took my sweet time getting around to smoking this weed; it was given to me by a friend who got it as a special thingy on 4/20. Solful is a dispensary which specializes in Sun Grown / outdoor flower only. And they have a very different relationship with their growers; it appears they are more supportive of good agricultural practices. How much of that is marketing or not is not easy to discern, but from all I have heard they are legit good people. Also, the experience of going to Solful is very positive; all the budtenders know their shit. Even the door guy has a significant ability to discuss weed and weed culture.
This bud is their toppiest shelf offering; 32% from an outdoor plant is kind of absurd though not unheard of up here. And it’s a fuckin’ banger. I’m grading on a minor curve in terms of the bud’s condition because I am the asshole who left it on a shelf for several months. Despite that it’s got a strong, pleasant aroma with hints of lemon and earth. I did a bunch of reading about terpenes, and I think that mean there’s like limonen and tinen in it? I could be totally wrong on that though.
What’s nice about this bud is that it’s got a variety of mental effects; it’s got a lot of nuance and ends up on the more energetic side of a hybrid, at least for me. I have a nice pleasant high but am still able to function pretty reasonably well.
So yes – unsurprisingly – the best bud from a really good dispensary is good. More at 11.
