Ultra Sour by Wildlife, a Staff Review

I’ve been waiting a long time to write this review. The first strains that I would truly label as “craft” are available at Evergreen!

We are still waiting for BC micro producers to be available, but if this is any indication of what to expect then the future looks bright.

I sampled Ultra Sour by Wildlife. I was really hoping to give it a super positive / exciting / holy cow! review…. and that is exactly what I get to do.

I was hit with a very strong smell when I opened the package, the flavor was classic Ultra Sour, with the diesel aspect really popping out. It also reminded me of a Haze or Congolese. The buds were moist but not damp, a really nice cure. Tight and spongy.

They ground up beautifully. The smell got even stronger, there was no dust and nothing got stuck in the grinder teeth.

I packed half a gram into my PAX3 and got ready for the beach. My plan was to finish my book then take a quick dip before getting high and listening to tunes in the sun.

That didn’t happen. I was way too excited. I had the vape heating up (lowest setting) before I put down my blanket.

It was delicious. The vapor was strong and consistent, the flavor was exactly like the smell. I was immediately very high. Pure sativa buzz. Often when I jump in cold water I find myself instantly sober but when I jumped in the water the high held. I finished my book after the swim, which is big news as I normally find it hard to read after consuming. My focus was strong. The high lasted a long time and as a pleasant surprise wore off into a nice heavy stone feeling (probably the mk ultra mix as it is a cross of MK Ultra and Sour).

Craft has arrived.

Blue Dream by Tantalus Labs – A Staff Review

Blue Dream (Blueberry crossed with Haze) has been one of the all time most searched online and one of the most overall popular strains in recent history. While it may not be the right strain for everyone, there’s a good reason why it’s so popular. Personally, it gives me one of the best and most balanced highs of any strain I’ve tried. Consistently, after I smoke a joint or vape some, I have to stop about an hour later and think “Wow, I feel amazing, what was it that I smoked earlier?” The answer is almost always Blue Dream.

Tantalus grows a great Blue Dream. It’s smooth, tasty and very uplifting. Their “Sun Lab 1” facility in Maple Ridge BC is very impressive. I had the opportunity to tour the compound last year and I felt like I’d traveled into the future. The place is clean, fresh and very high tech. They recycle rain water, use sunlight as much as possible and filter air through a giant vat of wood chips. No wonder their product tastes and feels so natural and delicious.

The Tantalus Blue Dream I tried used to be fairly expensive but they have recently dropped the prices considerably without sacrificing any quality. It’s one of the best deals on the market, especially if you bulk up with the 15 gram packages.

Conclusion: If you want a great daytime/afternoon, sativa dominant strain that always makes me feel super creative, happy, relaxed and focused, give the Tantalus Blue Dream a try.

Siren by Ankr Organic – A Staff Review

Smells like a very strong cheese with some earthiness.

Once ground up it had a way fresher smell. Lots of pine.

Vaped in my Pax3. It had a very potpourri-like flowery flavour and scent. I was very, very high. The sativa is very obvious in this strain. While I wasn’t bouncing off the walls with energy I was very happy and focused. I very much felt this buzz in my brain.

This is the best price I’ve seen for an organic strain yet. The company lists it as “Grown using certified-organic practices, and rooted in nutrient-rich living soil”, the packaging is made of recycled plastic and it comes with a boveda pack to ensure freshness.
