We enjoyed Subway Scientist but it failed to live up to our memory probably because it was lower THC with this batch. Consistency is a challenge for all LPs. THC level has been dropping significantly. A quick glance at Broken Coast would see a 3% THC reduction across their product offering. It’s the same story with Whistler Medical where it is hard to see products in the 20%+ range. Yea, there is a few with increasing THC content on some products but the trend appears to be downwards. And, those increasing THC levels are coming from low levels products to begin with.
THC level is not the be all and end all. It does, however, determines intensity and the degree of time dilation. Accordingly, this Subway Scientist is an excellent rendition of Granddaddy Purple. It delivers all the genetic expressions expected. If the THC level was higher, it would be better, off course. At slightly below $10 a gram, this is a reasonable valued product even with the government markup. We were happy with it. But, we were ecstatic with RIFF’s DT81 (Super Lemon Haze).
Cost: $31.70 for 3.5 grams
We are disappointed in the treatment of the product by RIFF. Did you really need to include stalks? literally little useless parts of the plant for additional weight? what are you thinking? Is this RIFF or Aphria? spend sometime curing it? The stuff looks like it came from Good Supply, which is the low end offering of Aphria’s recreational brand. Fortunately, the high delivers the goods. We like Good Supply, a low cost vendor with surprising effects.
Our admiration for Aphria’s product offering is increasing with every review of their products. It is becoming one of the more interesting cannabis consolidators. If you could only see the smile on our face :)
