My first totally unfair impression of this bud is that the name sounds made up. It gets a lot more positive from there but really? Ghostenade? Even if it’s meant to be a portmanteau it’s not clear to me what words are being linked here. And not to split hairs, but there’s a lot more orange taste and smell than anything even slightly Cherry.
Remember Cherry 2000? That completely schlocky sci-fi movie from the mid 80’s where Melanie Griffith played a sex robot? See, now – that’s just good casting.
So this bud, for all that the THC percentage will not knock your socks off, is actually really good pot. And it’s more mentally engaging than that single THC number would have you believe. This bud would actually be a good teaching tool for why chasing THC does not yield the best high.
This purchase comes off a recommendation from the budtender, when I asked him what he would go home and smoke right then if he had the means. And I get where he is coming from with that; this bud smokes very smooth, has a pleasant effect, and a nice wide and warm brain hug. It’s not going to stop you from getting stuff done, either, which is sometimes what you’re looking for.
I’m still new on the east coast, and again with Zero Gravity the manufacturer – this is another company I want to know more about. I know their packaging is very minimal and that the dude behind the counter said he liked them as a grower.
I don’t know that I am going to go rushing back to the shop to get more of this grass, but that’s because I generally want a little more mental impairment with my high, If that’s not you, then this bud may be a super fit. So you know – to embrace the notion that marketing should be targeted at a specific lifestyle or set of them – I would say that any delivery drivers or service workers looking for bud to smoke while working – this would be a great choice. Not that I condone that sort of thing. I mean I condone delivering pizzas. Just not doing so while high. Unless you’re good at it and the pizza is coming to my house. In which case do what you feel, fam.
