This is the first non irradiated product we have tried. 80% of Canadian legal cannabis are irradiated to meet Health Canada standards for mold and other microbial contaminants. FLOWR differentiates by growing in a pharmaceutical grade environment where their products do not have to be irradiated. Aphria uses irradiation and determined the reduction of some terpenes is a limited reduction and acceptable.
The high starts slow even though the lightness of mind begins after four or five inhalations. The high is a light sativa happy feeling to begin with but it will build over the next half hour. This is a creeper as the euphoria and energy kicks in between the 15 and 30 minute mark. There is zero body high indicating the purity of the sativa genetics.
For a creeper, this BC DelaHaze is a long one. Essentially, you peak well after the half hour mark. After 45 minutes, you are in a deep altered state without realizing it because it took so long to creep up. The entire process is very enjoyable especially if there is someone there to converse with. The duration profile for this strain is a build for half an hour to a peak high and that peak level continues for 30 minutes before you notice any degradation. The degradation is another half hour which takes the experience to 90 minutes before you feel the end is coming. This is one of the nicest duration profile we have encountered.
OK, is it better than irradiated? We have no idea. This is a very good sativa strain. The taste is nothing outstanding. It is a bit harsh, which maybe the curing. The high is good as the coffee replacement in the morning, or getting your butt moving and all the chores done (unlike Sour Jack from Whistler Cannabis we do not think you should waste such an amazing high doing chores but this strain is good for chores), get on that treadmill (although we advise against working out and getting high at the same time because a really good workout requires a high level of discomfort which would feel awful when you are high), write a novel, or just spending time with a good friend. Happy, euphoric, energetic, focused and uplifted are the profile of DelaHaze and FLOWR delivers all of them.
