Update: BestBuds.me is no longer open.
BestBuds.me (link at the end) reached out a few weeks ago and offered to send me some samples for review. They sent me Boars Breath, Special Sauce, and Boax. I will review the other 2 strains really soon, but today, we’re going to be focusing on the Boar’s Breath.
This strain is one I’ve never seen or heard of, and searching on Google only turned up results for a strain called Hog’s Breath. So if anyone has any more info about Boar’s Breath, please post in the comments.
BestBuds.me has a really nice website. They have the 3 strains (plus from what I understand, there are more coming soon), and also sell various other related products like concentrates and terpenes.
Shipping was great. Absolutely no smell (smell proof ziplock bags). Unfortunately (it’s been a crazy few weeks), I lost the batch of photos I took of the packaging and box. So I had to re-shoot the bud photos, and now I don’t have any pics of the packaging. I’ll make sure to add that next time, but just know, the packaging was great/ discrete.
Buds came in plain (smell proof) ziplock bags. Nothing out of the ordinary, but I am giving it a 9 because the first 2 times I ordered hemp, it came in ziplock baggies and one of them had coffee grounds poured all thought the box.
So when I see a nice neat box that doesn’t smell like weed, I’m giving the thumbs up!

First Smell 10/10
Ok. I got this shipment in the mail around 2 or 3 weeks ago. Things have been crazy, but part of it was that I was so floored when I first opened and smelled this Boar’s Breath.
It just about knocked me off of my feet! I don’t even know where to begin! I mean. First of all, with a name like Boar’s breath, I was expecting something way more stinky. But this is a lot more on the sweet side.
It’s almost like sniffing a bottle of pinesol! So, I’m guessing there’s some pinene in there.
Bud Quality 10/10
These buds are some of the prettiest I’ve seen. Deep purples, bright greens, bright orange hairs! It’s awesome looking!
Vaping Taste 10/10
Like I said, the terpenes are out of control with this strain. This has got to be one of the most piney strains I’ve tasted. It’s really complex!
I vaped this at around 360 degrees in my Arizer Argo.
This one has a pretty high CBD content too, b/c sessions lasted for quite a while – lots of vapor production.
Effects are really nice! Super relaxing. There is no THC, so you won’t get high, but all the other great effects of cannabis are there, like pain relief, anxiety relief, anti inflammatory, and so much more.
For those who have only used tinctures or edibles, I think vaping flower is by far the best way to take CBD.
Overall Value 8/10
At $10/ gram ($28/3.5 grams, 14 grams for $95, and $150/28.8 grams), the prices are not as high as the most expensive hemp products, but they are definitely on the higher end.
This is kind of a tough call, because on one hand, the product is great. Super unique. Super high quality. But on the other hand, it’s a bit spendy. For me though, this definitely isn’t cheap, but it’s a lot less than you’re going to pay in a dispensary.
Also, I’m just stoked to have another provider of high quality hemp! Thank you BestBuds.me!
Thanks so much for reading! Stay tuned for lots more reviews (lots of new hemp coming!).
