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.

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.

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.
