New York Craft Cannabis Cup 2021: Judges Edition (Day 4)

Happy Batman Day Everyone ๐Ÿ–ค, I hope you guys are having an amazing weekend! We’re BACK for Day 4 of our New York Craft Cannabis Cup – Judges Edition. As a reminder, I’ll be blind reviewing 16 different strain samples. ย They won’t have any labels so I’ll be going off appearance, aroma, flavor, and effect. ย Since my scores will need to remain secret, I won’t be revealing my favorite strain until after the event. ย Also, there are 16 different strains that I will need to review by September 23rd (judges’ results are due), so I will be reviewing 2 strain samples per day. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Now, let’s pick back up from where we left off yesterday! Today I decided to go with strain samples #12 and #6.๐Ÿ’จ

The first strain that I started off with Today was Sample #12 ๐Ÿ”Ž

Appearance – Pretty nice green color with a light spread of orange hairs. I noticed that after I ground up this nugget there were hints of purple trying to peek out. This strain was a bit dense but she still had some fluff to her. She had a slightly spongy feel to her however when I gave her a gentle squeeze between my fingers tiny bits started to crumble. Light coating of trichomes ๐Ÿ‘€. I wasn’t too impressed with the manicure/trim ๐Ÿค”, she had quite a few mini stems in there. I should point out that when I took the nugget out of the pop-top it did have a cute shape ๐Ÿ˜ฉ it looked like a mini island with tiny palm trees (see the first pic).

Aroma: This strain sample gave me a thyme aroma. Yes, I was getting spice rack again ๐Ÿ˜†. Once I broke this nugget down the thyme (spice rack) aroma became more potent.

Flavor: Taste matched the aroma, very pleasant taste on the inhale and exhale. Surprisingly there was also a pleasant aftertaste. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Effects: This strain was hitting nice, hard, and smooth. She put me in a cool and laid-back mood. I watched a few Batman movies (in celebration of Batman Day), this high didn’t allow me to read my comics ๐Ÿคฃ. This was also the first strain sample that put me to sleep. I woke up ready to eat everything in my house ๐Ÿ˜ฉ.

Next up is Sample #6 ๐Ÿ”Ž –

Appearance – This was actually a pretty gorgeous strain sample. Very beautiful green color with flaming orange hairs. Very nice spongy feeling, not too dry. I felt like the trichomes were lightly coated however, at some points I felt like my nugget was glistening. Manicure/trim wasn’t too bad.

Aroma: At first I got a sweet (sort of fruity) aroma when I smelled this strain sample. However, once I ground her up I got a very potent pine aroma. Once I lit up my joint I also got the pine aroma smell coming from the smoke. Maybe the terpenes were trying to give me sweet pine vibes ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜ฉ. Is that even a thing? ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Flavor: The hits were nice and smooth but definitely had some KICK to it! Of course, as previously mentioned I was able to taste the pine aroma in the smoke. Pleasant taste when I inhaled and exhaled.

Effects: I got a really nice and laid-back high from this strain sample. Super relaxing but not sleepy. I was able to get some work done, especially since I had to catch up from when I fell asleep earlier ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿคฃ. I was feeling pretty good but I was still a bit alert. I was definitely feeling wavy ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž.

Well, that’s it for Day 4 of my New York Craft Cannabis Cup reviews, make sure you check back tomorrow for my review on my next two strain samples๐Ÿ˜‹. Enjoy your Saturday and most importantly enjoy your Batman Day – make sure you either read a comic, watch a movie or just represent with some dope accessories. I’m off to go record my scores for these two strains have a great one Family.
