Let's start this off honestly. This marijuana was not loved. The trim on this is horrible. It's 20% stem and outer leaf. This is barely acceptable on the black market, but you can't really be professional and turn out product like this for the legal, recreational market. I only bought it because of the ridiculous deal. Having bought it, it was great.
The smell is super earthy. There's a damp definitely cheesy profile to the scent. Breaking up the flower releases a nice pungent terpene aroma. When you're interacting with this, it's tough to get over just how much stem and leaf is left over. I smoked all the leaf along with the bud. I don't like seeing the quantity of stems leftover. They'll go into the stemjar, I'm definitely not happy about seeing this in my legal, recreational marijuana.
Smoking this was delicious. On the inhale there's a pungency and very vegetative texture - a touch rough. The exhale is sweet, fruity earthiness. It leaves a bit of sticky lung, and a tasty resiny layer of flavor on the lips.
The high on this is stupid sativa. It's definitely got some uplift and happy feeling. Mostly it's stupid. I really regret smoking this on my last smoke break of the day. It lead to me not really knowing what to say when it was somewhat important that I did. Oh well, tomorrow's another day.
Overall, I'm not impressed with the results of the rough tumble through an autotrimmer this otherwise outstanding marijuana must have gone through. The high is great. The flavor is pretty good for outdoor marijuana. I checked out the Fireweed Farms website and they look to be a family operation with marijuana available in October so we'll see what they turn out next time.
