For this weeks review, High Above Seattle got an exclusive sample of Fruit Punch from Bang’s Cannabis Company.
Bang’s Cannabis Co. is based out of Cheney, Washington – High Above Seattle has actually written about them before (here, and here). The company was started by a married couple, Patrick and Lacey Bang, and ever since marijuana (in Washington) has been legalized this duo has been following their passion in marijuana cultivation and distribution.
One specific thing that stood out to me about this company was their focus on sustainability; notably using all organic soil and nutrients. According to their website (www.bangscannabisco.com), Bang’s is looking into attaining windmills to completely replace electrical costs and usage when growing marijuana.
Looking at the packaging, Bang’s continues their focus on sustainability by using glass jars instead of plastic bags. Each glass jar is adorned with a sticker providing information regarding the strain inside.
Lets take a look at the specifics:
Fruit Punch buds look lovely, showing off shades of green and purple. The nugs are nicely trimmed, and the marijuana itself has been cured to the point where you can break it up by hand. As much as I love using a grinder, sometimes it’s just nice to crumble up some herb with your fingers.
According to the Bang’s themselves – your fingers will be left with tangy, sweet and syrupy smell and a smoke that lives up to it’s name.
The smell of this strain is sweet and funky, it’s heavy on the fruitiness (as the name suggests). Every once and a while you get a strain that is named so appropriately, and truly Fruit Punch packs a… well… it packs a punch (cue the Kool-Aid man bursting through the wall).
This author sampled Fruit Punch out of both a water pipe and a vaporizer. The water pipe yielded a rich cherry-like flavor, whilst the vaporizer had a more of a berry-lemon taste. Smoking the strain and eating some pie would be a winning combination.
After testing out Fruit Punch, we walked around Fremont (dammit why didn’t we go to that Pie place?!), got some lunch, and beer. It was a great “doing stuff’ kind of high – the sun was shining and there were sea planes landing in Lake Union.
As soon as we got home, the couch lock hit – and I was super tired. A good strain will hit you hard, but it may leave you tired as well (luckily there are caffeinated beverages to help with such things).
Various strains from Bangs Cannabis Company are available throughout stores in the Seattle area, and we’d highly recommend you give one a try! This company creates some potent marijuana, with a bang.
