Dense high that takes you away from the troubles of this linear world. See you on the other side.
Welcome back, sirs and madams, to High Above Seattle marijuana reviews with Fischer Campbell. Snowland, this week’s strain, is featuring a new producer (for us) going by the name of Downtown Cannabis Company website. We picked it up at an excellent little shop known as Bel Mar marijuana store Bellevue (located in Bellevue).
Downtown Cannabis Company is located out of Pacific, WA. Their slogan (as of October, 2014) is “mindful of the past, growing for the future…”. If this producer has anything to do with it, the future is going to be bright (and it’ll get you high as a kite, too).
There is not much of an online presence when it comes to Downtown Cannabis Company (the current website is just a blank screen with “maintenance” as the header). Not a big deal, but it’s always convenient to get a more personal view of the producer’s mission and method.
In terms of packaging, this producer passes the transparency test. The front is a solid green color, featuring Downtown Cannabis Co’s logo (and website) – the backside offers a window into the product, letting you see the nugs within. Snowland looks fantastic, as I’m sure you can tell from the photos.
Let’s take a closer look:
THC Total: 25.77
Looking at Snowland, it’s easy to see how it gets it’s title – I always like a strain with a relevant name. Crispy kief flaked nuggets, luxurious red hairs, a dark green-blue tint. When breaking up by hand, prepare for “stick to your hands” stickiness. Based solely on appearance, Snowland is exceptional.
Cracking open the package, a pungent smell overtook me: pine, spice, synthetic lemon, vanilla. This strain has aroma up the wazoo. Embrace the funk.
The taste mimics the smell, consisting of strong lemon and spice – yet I also detect a subtle licorice type flavor.
Snowland’s high is on par with a wrecking ball (in the best way possible). Prepare to be hit by a train, and quite literally taken for a ride. One hit is enough to send you off your rocker, but beware of repeated bong rips – as I can personally attest to getting green fever from overindulging on this strain.
This would be a great herb for a festival, or a show… either that or just hanging out on the couch; any other activity would hinder you akin to the village drunk in public. A little goes a long way, Snowland is a doozy. It was the perfect strain to watch Star Wars (May the 4th be with you), and just nerd out on how bad Phantom Menace was.
Hopefully Downtown Cannabis Company will get their page out of maintenance soon, and if so we will edit this article. Regardless, this strain is strong and pleasant – I’d highly recommend giving it a try.
