Is “Hawaii Heartbreak” an Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwoʻole’s song? Whose “Heart” was broken? Hawaii? What? At 19.06% THC, Hawaii Heartbreak cost $31.86 for 3 grams, which was $10.62 a gram times three. Quadra sells for $48 for 3.5 grams when available. Packaged on December 14, 2019, and today is April 6, 2020, the flowers were still fresh and smelled exactly like Quadra, a really piney medicinal herbal dank scent.
This Hawaii Heartbreak taste exactly like Broken Coast Quadra. The flowers were not as greasy as Broken Coast’s Quadra, which is always sticky. The “high” starts with noticeable mental acceleration creating a feeling of lift, a lightness of mind. There is a slight pressure on our temples but it is not a headband like Quadra. With Quadra, we felt pressure around our head hence the “headband,” which can happen with very high levels of THC on a number of strains. The “high” is very similar to Quadra. It looks, smells, tastes and feels like Quadra. Wow.
For those of you who have not heard of Quadra, Broken Coast Quadra is a heavy hitting Indica highly regarded in the Cannabis community. Hawaii Heartbreak is an exact copy of Quadra grown by a different grower, RIFF. But, the effects are different. Key difference is Quadra delivers a more Full Spectrum experience. The intensity of Quadra is stronger. Quadra’s expressions like euphoria and cerebral stimulation are much stronger. But, Hawaii Heartbreak has it all but at a lower intensity across the range of expressions. This maybe a validation of Broken Coast grower’s skill as superior to many growers. But, Hawaii Heartbreak is a lot cheaper and delivers a competitive alternative.
Activity pairing to some extend is determine by tolerance as this is a heavier Indica strain meaning stronger body relaxation effects, which means some lethargy. The increase of energy with all cannabis strain in the first hour, however, can help sustain some level of physical demands. We could go for walks but it is probably more enjoyable sitting by the fire chatting or just listening to music. After all, you are in Indica “Bliss” land.
Duration is around the two hours mark. There is some tiredness at the end and slumber maybe the finale?
