Here at High Above Seattle, I’d like to think we don’t mess around. Conventional traditions are out the window, we settle for nothing less then buds that are magnified by at least several proportions. A simple nug on nug on nug will not do (man, that sounds wrong – and it’s only the intro, jeez): we bring you 7-Way, by Private Reserve. You’re welcome.
Private Reserve is (surprise!) a NorthWest Cannabis Solutions brand. I got a quarter of 7-Way for $50 at Belmar, a small shop in Bellevue (though Private Reserve products can be found across multiple Seattle locations – check the bottom of the review for such inquiries).
We’ve checked out products from this producer before (see here, and here). The consensus seems to be most of the flower in the NWCS/Private Reserve/Legends-realm is consistent, highly affordable, and abundant. These are all selling points for the every-folk, like you and me.
Their website doesn’t indicate any methods of sustainable practice or growing, which is kind of a bummer (I don’t know the whole story though – you’d think that’s what a website would be for). A little more transparency would be nice on that front, regardless the strains from this producer I’ve tried have been enjoyable.
The specifics, you seek:
Date Harvested: 10/27/16
Smell: Gasoline + Funk
Taste: Floral + Cheesy
Launch Point: Immediately after inhaling.
High: Energetic + Euphoric + Relaxed + Functional
According to myth, 7-Way was born from only the best sativas. How many parents? Nobody knows. The secret is well kept (and lethally guarded) by men in dark-colored suits. Apparently the deal is that the strain is 100% sativa, and upon smoking imbues one with an energetic, relaxing and all-around lovely high. Medical prescriptions would be used for stress/anxiety, lack of appetite, depression and pain – a genuine Jack-of-all-Weeds (I’ll show myself the door).
I’ve actually bought this strain several times over the weeks, and each iteration has looked pretty stellar. A camouflage of bright green and orange, dusted with crystal kief. Yada-yada, it looks good! Check the pictures for more proof.
When snapping a bud apart, the strain has a Super Glue™/jet fuel smell to it, almost like a martini. The flavor is floral and skunky, pungent out of a pipe or vaporizer.
7-Way has an inherently chill high. It’s easy to function, get some stuff done, little bit of this/little bit of that. “Well balanced” is a good way of putting the experience into words, a solid half ‘n half of ♫mental stimulations and body vibrations♫. Some sort of mixture between being super blazed yet perpetually in control, it’s kind of like it looked into my soul (the weed, 7-Way, I’m talking about). Yeah, it’s good.
This was a get-up-and-go kind of strain, for me. Like a cuppa coffee – after a bowlski or two, I’m ready to roll with whatever savagely-crushing tasks the day has in store. Come here life, you’re a little bit easier with my good friend 7-Way.
You can find Private Reserve, and other NWCS products at: American Mary (Wallingford), Belmar (Bellevue), Clutch Cannabis (Renton), Have a Heart (Greenwood/Fremont), among many other locations.
