🍓 MTL – Strawberry N’ Mintz
I’ve been eyeing this one since I found the numbers for this initial lot. 32.3% THC, which is great, but as we all know not a sign that anything will be quality or even hit well. 4.79% is the more important number, the bigger number, and it’s all terps!
The first parent is Strawberry Guava, a strain bred by Oni Seeds. They’re an outfit specializing in the best flower for concentrates, and hash from this strain won the 2017 Chalice Cup for the category’s highest terp content! It was crossed with Kush Mints, known for their potency and high pinene content, which helps turn the otherwise classic kush high more mentally stimulating. Here, we get a perfect marriage between the two.
Open the container, and you get smacked with strawberry bliss. There is a funk underneath from the dominant myrcene, making the otherwise candy sweetness more natural. Less like strawberry Twizzlers, more like real strawberries! The nug appeal was mixed. Just a single nug, though, with an extremely loose bud structure. It even broke up while rattling around my bag. However, unlike most airy bud, the trichomes inside remained pristine, as seen in the micro pics, showcasing the care in processing.
From the first puff, there is amazing body relief. I felt my eyes squinting but was extra upbeat in my custy service mode at work. There is no real mental nor physical energy, but still no couchlock, similar to a landrace. It just made me relaxed. Social anxieties evaporated, and I could talk away, while the pinene made sure I did not lose focus, letting me take in the custy’s needs and recommend accordingly. Overexplaining strains to American tourists just looking for some kush became way too much fun, and I saw many eyes glaze over even more than mine already were!
The cure was the only big letdown. While personally, I do not care about white ash, this burned black and had to be relit often. And many reviews seemed to have the same problem.
MTL has grown one of the tastiest buds available at this mid-tier price. It does not hit with the full 30%+ THC, but if you’re a flavour chaser, this is a must try 🍓🤤🍓🤓🍓
