It was the week before Christmas that I tried some great herb, it was Avitas‘ Snoop’s Dream and the taste was superb. Before you lies our careful critique, of the bud we picked up from Green-Theory marijuana boutique.
We’ve touched on Avitas as a producer before in previous reviews (see here, and here) – but basically, to describe them in a singular sentence: they are growing something special. Avitas is a values-first producer, specifically focusing on: Customers, Quality, Community, Environment, Genetics, & Cultivation. I’d recommend checking out their graceful website for more information on this kick ass marijuana producer.
Avitas packaging fits the holiday cheer, it’s almost like a deconstructed Christmas tree: we’ve got the tinsel and shininess of decorations, alongside the present-like presentation. Good folk of Seattle, this is the perfect stocking stuffer (for anyone 21 years old, of course).
One thing this author particularly enjoys about Avitas packaging is the abundance of information on the front of the baggie. We get the strain name, the sativa/indica percentage, and a description of the strain:
Smooth smoke with lots of Kush flavor. Relaxed body with a dreamy and euphoric headiness.
Damn, I was really hoping for Snoop tested, Snoop approved (ala Kix cereal) – oh well, we all can’t get what we want for Christmas… plus Avitas’ description is much better then mine in terms of clarity. Asides from all that information, we get a rustic yet complex mandala-like design wrapping around the sticker. I literally cannot praise Avitas enough (with such fantastic values and intuitive packaging), so I’m just going to leave it at that and move on to The Specifics:
Total THC – 18.66%
THC-A – 17.87%

Snoop’s Dream has a duality of sweet and spice when it comes to the smell. Churning up some nugs in my grinder, the fragrance is divine: a solid dryer sheet earthiness lingers on the nostrils, with a sensation from the spice.
The bud itself is a remarkable shade of white neon green, snowcapped from tip to stem with fresh powdah’ (sometimes the Northeastern accent in me comes out). Jump on the gondola and take a ride to the top with Snoop’s Dream.
The dryer sheet earthiness heavily carries over from smell to taste with this strain. Avitas describes this as “kush flavor”, and by jove – I think they’re on to something. Smoking out of my Hotbox vaporizer, Snoop’s Dream is an all around pleasure to indulge in with a strong flavor and seemingly soft smoke.
What did I do when I got stoned? We decorated our tree, actually. It was quite fitting: friends over to get high, and decorate a small tree in a small apartment. We got turnt up on that Charlie Brown Christmas album, y’know how it goes.
On a more specific note, the feeling was incredibly heady (as Avitas mentions in the description) – not heavy, mind you. There is a fantastic lightness to the high of Snoop’s Dream, a clean experience where you are fresh in and fresh out. This is what I’d consider a “treat yo’ self” strain, which is why it would make the perfect Christmas gift.
Kudos to Avitas for cranking another home-run, and indeed a happy holiday to all.
