In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king
I used the first timer promotions for Vidacann and Curalief, was disappointed and never ordered from them again.Has anyone else has been sort of disappointed by the quality of the flower available right now? Since the beginning of August I’ve purchased various strains from Grow Healthy, Curaleaf, Trulieve, and Harvest. They were all ok, but nothing I was really excited about. I wonder if it’s something about the harvest this time of year; I seem to remember having a similar experience at the end of summer last yea
The only exception is one of the new strains Curaleaf started offering recently. It’s called Bombs Away. I had a bowl in my Sticky Brick Runt that was beyond the typical mediocre flavor I’ve been getting recently.
Curaleaf has a pretty great flower sale right now that is tempting me to try all their new stains that are 15%-21%. I should know better, they disappoint more often than not. I wonder if anyone here has tried any of the others than Bombs Away? Here’s the deets:
Grow Healthy, Trulieve and One-plant are the only "consistent"quality flower dispensaries I've dealt with so far but as you mention it's been awhile since I've had a "WOW!" purchase/moment unless I bought just the most expensive top tier. Anything less than the top tier and it feels like the grow has been underwhelming compared to the same price level and strain pruchased in the past.
I've noticed that buying the higher THC% flower (Upwards of 25%) and top tier is a way to hedge my bet but even then there's no guarantee and the cost for that kind of flower is why I tend to wait for a good sale.
I also noticed that recent purchases are, as you say, good but not great. Recent purchase experience from Trulieve: Comparing Skunk Ape to a Cultivar Strain (I think it was Reggae Cowboy). I opened the Skunk Ape and the package was full with decent smelling buds. When I opened the Cultivar strain only half the package was filled with decent sized, decent smelling buds. I thought the Cultivar package was underweight but both packages were spot on. The Skunk Ape was kind of larfy and the same Skunk Ape weight as the Cultivar would produce half the number of hits. My wife complained about it.
