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.

Presentation na/10

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

I never actually made a review like this one for Kanapinis, but if I did, I imagine the smell score would have been about the same.

When I opened the jar, all I could smell was a strong dried grass scent. I couldn’t detect anything else. Even really getting my nose in there and inhaling deeply. Nothing but grass.

After the initial smell test, I took out about 1/3 gram of bud, put it in the palm of my hand, and ground it up with my fingers. I cupped my hand and brought it up to my nose. Breathed in deeply. Maybe something? But mostly still grass/ earth.

I know it’s kind of hard to believe, because just look at the pictures, right?

It makes me wonder if they water cured it to purposefully remove the smell. Either that, or the worst cure job ever.

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.

Vaping Taste 5/10

Method of consuming: Vaporization
Vaporizer temperature: 370 degrees F

The initial taste of Sour Tsunami was exactly what I imagined it would be after the smell test. But the surprising part was that it was actually not a bad taste. It wasn’t super tasty like some other strains, but it was definitely not bad.

It’s mostly earthy/ grassy, but there’s a really subtile hint of mint. And each bowl lasts for quite a while too.

Effects 7/10

The relaxing/ anti-anxiety feeling of CBD is definitely there, but I’m not sure about the terpenes. I certainly can’t really taste any.

Overall Value 5/10

Overall, I think this product has a lot of potential. Mostly because they grow their own hemp, so they have the ability to improve the curing process and make it better.

I also really like how the product is presented and packaged. But when I open a container of Sour Tsunami, I expect to smell Sour Tsunami. Not grass.

  1. Hey bro, looks like your the most active on here so I’d try to reach u hear. I love what your doing bro. I would love to watch your videos on D tube but none of them play. All they do is buffer. I hope you consider fixing that.

    • Hi! Thanks so much! That stinks to hear about d.tube. I’ve heard this before. So it’s definitely time to find something else. I’ll add a link to the sidebar to the new video platform when I find one.

  2. I dont think it anythin ur doin i think its other peoples phone or computer cause i can watch them no proble

    • Hey! Thanks for the heads up. A couple of people have said it doesn’t work, but I haven’t had any issues.

  3. Thanks for the review. I happened to buy this while on vacation in SC. I’m from Vegas so I don’t usually buy hemp. I totally agree with the grass taste and smell. But it did do the job. After reading your reviews, I’m trying jazzy from cbdhemp.direct. Found it funny that they are located in Vegas coincidentally. Picking up my order on Monday. Keep it up. It is greatly appreciated.

    • Thanks! And yeah. Despite the lack of “cannabis” smells, I didn’t mind vaping it at all. And you are spot on. The medicine is definitely there!

      I hope you enjoy the Jazzy!

  4. USA Hemp never intended to sell flower whole. Last years harvest was meant for extraction. However, they realized there was a large market for biomass.

    I encourage you to give this years harvest a try, as it will be stored and cured differently and I guarantee you’ll change your mind!
