AC/DC CBD Flower from Coast to Coast Collective – LA

AC/DC by Coast to Coast Collective in LA - 1

Just a quick note before I get into the review. TweedleFarms.com just released their brand new version of AC/DC, and if I’m not mistaken, it’s actually grown on their farm (the fabulous Tweedle Farm).

I got a notification yesterday that a package from Tweedle Farms was delivered, and I’m 99% sure it’s the new AC/DC!

Well, as luck would have it, I’m actually out of town at the moment, so unfortunately, I won’t be able to review it until this weekend (Saturday or Sunday). Not really awesome, but stay tuned for that detailed review and video when I get back.

In the meantime, I thought I’d take the opportunity to review some hemp from a dispensary. ( And wouldn’t you know, the strain I bought is AC/DC!)

I thought it would be cool to review since I just tried the new AC Diesel from CBD Hemp Direct (video), and I’m about to try the new AC/DC from TF.

The funny thing is, even though it looks and smells the same, when you buy it from a dispensary, they don’t actually call it hemp. And it turns out that if you don’t call it hemp, you can charge a whole lot more for it.

Shopping na/10

I didn’t order this, but the store was really nice, and the cashier was super helpful.

Shipping na/10

No shipping, but everything at the dispensary was really efficient.

Presentation 10/10

3C AC/DC came in a super sturdy small glass jar. It was a lot like the kind of jar that Venice Circle used, but this one has a child proof lid. A really nice touch.

First Smell 10/10

I will say that the smell of this flower is definitely next level. I’m guessing it’s because it was grown indoors. It smells pretty sweet, but with lots of gassy/ diesel/ skunky notes. I loved it immediately.

Bud Quality 10/10

First of all, let me apologize for the low quality photos. I don’t have my normal light setup, but take my word for it. These buds are beautiful! The pictures turned out kind of dull.

Buds are super, super, super sticky. Unfortunately, there are no test results available with this flower, but I’d guess the CBD % is between 18% and 22%.

Vaping Taste 10/10

This AC/DC tastes a lot like Suzy Q from Tweedle Farms, and also Elektra from CBD International.

(for those wondering what kind of vape this is, it’s an Arizer Argo — see the banner on the sidebar of this site (bottom of the page for mobile))

This AC/DC is equal parts sweet/floral/citrus/diesel/ skunk. It tastes really amazing. Definitely top 5 for me.

Effects 10/10

As I mentioned earlier, this flower didn’t come with any lab results, but I’m willing to bet that it might have a smidge more THC than .3% you find in the products I usually review here.

On top of the regular calming/ anti-anxiety effects of CBD, there’s also a really subtile heaviness in my eyelids. I’m also really sleepy. So I think this would be a great night time strain, but it would also be fine for daytime. This is really nice.

Overall Value 6/10

At $17/gram, $40/ 1/8th, and $270/ounce, this is way more expensive than just about all of the flower I’ve reviewed. From my limited experience w/ dispensaries, this really isn’t out of the ordinary at all.

I know this review is a little bit out of the ordinary, because it’s a product that most of you reading this won’t actually be able to try. Even so, I hope it’s been informative and interesting to see what people are getting in legal states.

Thanks so much for reading!

  1. Interesting that you say ac/dc smells a bit like Elektra. Eletkra is an Oregon CBD seeds strain and is ac/dc crossed with Early Pine Berry. I’m growing Elektra at my farm (lukeshemp.com) this year.
    I think this review shows that properly dried and cured hemp bud is on another level compared to most of the quick dried hay being sold as hemp flower.
    I think this fall there will be a lot more producers like me trying to grow, dry, and cure hemp more professionally for the hemp flower market and quality will go up rapidly.

    • Yes! This is what we need! I agree. Most of the hemp on the market is rushed/ mass produced. I think that’s why they are having such a hard time selling the stuff! I mean, it’s nice to have super cheap hemp available, but I think the best (and most fun/ fulfilling) business model would be to go for the highest quality possible.

      Thank you for commenting, and I will try to follow your blog. Good luck!
