Dark Star by High Park – Staff Review

High Park always delivers solid quality. When I opened the package I was instantly hit with a strong fruity aroma. Although it was only packaged two weeks ago I was surprised to see how dry the buds were – proof again that packaging date is not as important as the seal on the container. I re-hydrated it with a dewbie stone then filled my Pax 3 vaporizer and turned it on the lowest setting.

It had a very earthy flavor with a scotch-like peaty aftertaste. I was hit with an extremely heavy stone immediately after consuming. It was very much in my head and I was extremely relaxed if not fully couch locked. No munchies and when I went to bed I had a nice deep sleep.

We only have a limited supply so I recommend this to a regular indica smoker who wants to change it up and try something new.

Lighten The Mood – A Staff Review of Watermelon Zkittlez by Tenzo

I was fairly impressed by Tenzo’s Watermelon Zkittlez. It’s got a sweet, peppery, citrus smell with slight earthy undertones. I personally thought it smelled more like a Sativa, but it’s actually a quite complex, Indica leaning Hybrid.

I smoked it in a joint, early in the evening and found it functional and relaxing, but also lightly sedative. It puts you in a great mood, while helping you wind down for the night. It burned really nicely and had a sweet, almost candy like taste followed by subtle berry flavours.

The buds are fresh and large with lots of gorgeous trichomes and colours. Tenzo also has some of the best packaging I’ve seen on the market. Petite and discrete, but holds an entire eighth perfectly. I’d recommend this strain to anyone from a novice smoker, to an experienced powerhouse.
