Phat Panda (Platinum Series) Terpee Slurpee (GMO X Orange Zkittlez) Flower

Chris Arellano is a budtender at Uncle Ike’s White Center location. The cannabis connoisseur shared some of his thoughts on Narnia Honey Crystal by Oleum 

Notes from Chris:

Genetics: “An award-winning Indica Dominant strain, Terpee Slurpee brings new school genetics together to form what should be a staple for terpene aficionados.”

Appearance: “This Slurpee is served frosty with trichomes coating the entire surface of the bud. Pockets of sensimilla and nice light green (underneath all the trichomes) color, give this herb plenty of jar appeal”

Fragrance: “Dominant genetics for the nose definitely came from Orange Zkittlez, with a fruity, orangey aroma. A musky undertone reminds you who’s the daddy, GMO.”

Flavor: “Using a vaporizer for maximum flavor, the terpenes from this strain reminded me of Mimosa. This is definitely one of the best-tasting strains I’ve ever tried, and is quite true to its name!”

Effects: “The high had a fast onset and felt heavy and stony. One of the few citrusy strains I would recommend to Indica users.”

Overall Recommendations: “I feel this strain earns it’s Platinum Series status and should be a connoisseur’s choice when it comes to flavor.”

JC Caris is a budtender at Uncle Ike’s. He recently tried Allen Wrench by Treedom and shared his thoughts on the products with The Sesh.

Notes from JC Caris: 

Genetics: “This is a NYC Diesel x Trainwreck and man is it a sativa match made in heaven.”

Appearance and Texture: “The flower is cured beautifully this batch as the actual flower is dense and sticky. However, it remains a dream to grind up, roll, or straight toss in a bowl as it gathers up so nicely. The trichomes on this baby is like pollen, dusty, and plentiful.”

Fragrance: “It smells like lavender.”

Effects: “The high levels of Linalool really plays into the good stress-free mood for me just like dosidos or even Skittlez but without any real body high. This one is very behind the eyes high focus but with an undertone of a calm, creative side. The high comes fast and hard and so far has been amazing for completing a lot of tasks. Would be an excellent wake n’ bake strain!”

Overall Recommendations: “Can’t stress how much I love this one.”

Wedding Cake Flower by Treedom

Josh Vita is a budtender at Uncle Ike’s. He shared his expertise and thoughts on Wedding Cake Flower by Treedom.

Notes from Josh:

Genetics: “Wedding Cake, also known as Pink Cookies, is an Indica-Dominant Hybrid. This sweet and tasty strain is a cross of Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie.”

Experience: “I wake n’ baked this on my day off yesterday. I smoked it in a pipe while I read the news on my phone. It burned nicely and hit me quickly.”

Effects: “It started as an uplifting head high, then it moved into a relaxing body high. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a great mellow high, but not one that keeps them from functioning. I was really pleased with the overall high.”

Peaches and Cream flower by Burnwell

Josh Vita is a budtender at Uncle Ike’s. He shared his expertise and thoughts on Peaches and Cream flower by Burnwell.

Notes from Josh:

Genetics: “This strain is a mix of Chemdawg, Super Silver Haze, Maui and Grape Kush.”

When I looked at the strain mix on Iheartjane, I saw it had Chemdawg in it. Chemdawg happens to be one of my favorite strains. 

Experience: “Peaches and Cream is a crisp and refreshing hybrid to smoke from Burnwell.”

Effects: “I could tell right away that I loved the high, and it was cool to see the connection to another strain I enjoy. I highly recommend looking up more about the strains you smoke and love. To me this hybrid was more uplifting and energetic, with a great stoney head high. 

Overall Recommendations: “This would be a great strain to recommend to a customer that wants to be happy, high, and able to focus on whatever work or fun they have planned.”

Purple Punch by Boggy Boon

JC Caris is a budtender at Uncle Ike’s. He recently Purple Punch by Boggy Boon and shared his thoughts on the products with The Sesh.

Notes from JC Caris: 

Appearance: “God what a pretty Purple Punch!” 

Effects: “While Death Star is one of my favorite indicas from them, this one I mainly use to sleep. About 30 minutes after a bowl or jay of this wonderful beauty and I’m out for the rest of the night. Very few strains vibe like that for me in that way personally. I have insomnia so finding that one strain that does the job pretty much every time is hard. But boggys Purple Punch is just about the sleepiest I’ve had. Small amounts are great for a little quick destress too.

Overall Recommendations: Boggy Boon really hit the nail on the head this batch for sure. 

Wedding Cake flower by Gold Leaf

Rebecca West is a budtender at Uncle Ike’s Central District location. She shared her experience with Wedding Cake flower by Gold Leaf with The Sesh.

Notes from Rebecca:

Fragrance: This particular strain is very aromatic to the point where we can smell it through the bag through our masks, which isn’t something we come across with every strain. 

Flavor: I loved the flavor of it! More citrus than pine which i wasn’t expecting but i liked a lot. That paired with the pungent smell makes it very very enjoyable

Effects: The high lasted a good hour as well. I found myself two bowls and two and a half hours into my school work without a care in the world in no time.

 Ice Cream Cake flower by Royal Tree

Rebecca West is a budtender at Uncle Ike’s Central District location. She shared her experience with Ice Cream Cake flower by Royal Tree with The Sesh.

Notes from Rebecca:

Flavor: “I loved how piney and earthy the flavor was.”

Experience and Effects: “I smoked before going on a hike and i was more relaxed on this walk than I normally am while smoking. I found myself walking a little slower and enjoying myself more freely. It’s uplifting and yet will Zen you out. 

Overall Recommendations: “A great one to smoke for parents or those who need to keep moving but chill out!”
