Some of you may have seen the review of the 30 gram bag of CBD Hemp Direct’s Cherry Wine.
Well, this week, we’ve got a new strain from CBD Hemp Direct to try. It’s called Purple Power Ranger.
Sound pretty awesome, right? Yeah. I ordered as soon as I saw it for sale on the site.
And a HUGE thanks to CBD Hemp Direct, because they sent me some extra goodies!
Shipping was extremely fast again (these guys are on it!). I ordered on a Thursday, Feb 8. It arrived Monday, Feb 12.
Instead of a smell proof bag, the buds were packaged in a plastic jar. Though the jar isn’t super nice, the design is attractive. Also, I do prefer to store my flower in jars. So it’s way more convenient for me.
Here’s the envelope it was shipped in.
The first thing I checked for was any odor of weed when I opened the envelope. There was no smell at all.
I really liked the bag design of the $80 ounce of Cherry Wine, but I have to admit. I like the jars a lot better. I’m guessing it might be expensive to use jars for packaging, but it is a much more convenient way to store flower.
Also, I like the new package designs that look like Leafly or an elemental chart.
Testing Grade na/10
It’s been a while since I bought this. I’m pretty sure they sent some sort of COA, but I don’t have it, and the product isn’t available anymore.
First Smell 5/10
The smell is definitely good, but there’s not a lot of it there until you actually start to handle the flower.
Then, the smell really pours out. It’s very fruity and sweet smelling.
Bud Quality 7/10
First. A disclaimer: Seeds don’t bother me at all. When I find good seeds, I am always super stoked. I actually enjoy picking seeds out of buds.
Ok. Now that that’s out of the way.
Based on my last experience with CBD Hemp Direct, I was expecting some more nice CBD buds, and I wasn’t disappointed at all!
Since this flower came in a jar, it was actually not smushed at all. The flowers are big and airy. Like the first batch of Cherry Wine, this batch also has seeds. There don’t seem to be as many as the bag Cherry Wine, but still, there are several per bud.
Vaping Taste 8/10
The smell in the jar when I first opened it might have been a bit underwhelming, but the first vape! Wow!
I mean. I’m just going to say that this is the first time I’ve ever vaped a purple bud that tastes purple. I got notes of grape Kool Aid from back in the day. Very tasty!
This flower has just about 15% CBD, and I’m assuming around .3% THC.
For those who haven’t used any THC recently, you will likely feel a tiny effect from THC, but the main and overwhelming effect is that of the CBD.
It is very calming and relaxing. In my opinion, it’s for any time of day. For some, it may be better only at night b/c it can make you a bit drowsy.
Overall Value 8/10
If you don’t mind some seeds, this is a pretty great value. I’d prefer to buy a larger size for a discounted price. But even at $45/quarter ounce, the price is still good. Especially when compared to dispensaries.
