Hi all, and welcome! Today, we’re taking a close look at a strain called Cannatonic from USA Hemp Co.
About the strain: According to Leafly, Cannatonic is a “hybrid” strain. Across between “a female MK Ultra and a famous G13 Haze”.
Product: 2 Grams of Cannatonic Flower
Date Ordered: May 30, 2018
Date Delivered: June 4, 2018
Sender Name: The sender’s name on the package is “USA HEMP CO”, which doesn’t bother me, but might not be ok for some who want more discrete shipping.
The packaging wasn’t very substantial, but since the product is in a glass jar, there was no chance of it getting crushed.
One thing I didn’t like about the 2 gram packaging was that they really crammed the buds in there, and it was pretty hard to get them out without mangling them.
Testing Grade 0/10
Safety testing: No (-5)
Potency Testing: No (-3)
Terpene Analysis: No (-2)
No documentation came with the flower, and I couldn’t find anything on their website.
They do say that the flower is “organic” (for what that’s worth).
First Smell 2/10
Just like the previous strain I reviewed from USA Hemp Co, this Cannatonic is completely devoid of any good smells. Unless you really love the smell of cut dry grass.
After hand grinding the Cannatonic, I was barely able to detect the smell of terpenes. But only barely.
I’m going to assume that this flower was harvested really late (all amber trichomes) and not cured at all.
Bud Quality 8/10
The trim job is very minimal/ rough. But even so, the quality of the buds is good.
They are firm/ dense, mature, and very resinous (lots of trichomes)
Vaping Taste 5/10
Method of consuming: Vaporization
Vaporizer temperature: 370 degrees F
Unlike the other 2 strains I bought from USA Hemp Co, this one did taste a little bit better, but not by a lot.
The relaxing/ anti-anxiety feeling of CBD is definitely there, but like the other 2 strains I ordered, I’m not sure about the terpenes. I’m guessing they evaporated or deteriorated over time.
Overall Value 4/10
After trying all 3 strains from USA Hemp Co, I definitely wouldn’t order again. The good news is, they seem have the infrastructure (nice website, company, packaging), so all they need to do is find some better hemp.
I hope this has been helpful. And stay tuned for more reviews soon!
