Strain Integrity

For this unknown strain, we are going with Agent Orange or Orange Crush guess for Grower’s Choice Sativa by Good Supply because it smells and taste of oranges.

According to Leafly, ” Don’t let the name scare you! A well-balanced hybrid combining the smooth Orange Velvet with the bold Jack the Ripper, Agent Orange by MzJill Genetics will capture your senses. Wonderful smells of oranges and fresh-cut citrus will immediately entice you, while the pigments of deep maroon and purple will make its buds stand out in a sea of green. The effects are often uplifting and motivating, serving as a great mood enhancer if you are feeling lethargic or depressed.

For Orange Crush, according to Leafly, ” Orange Crush is a sativa-dominant cannabis strain with a super sweet tangy flavor and aroma. Bred by BC Growers Association with California Orange and Blueberry for parents, Orange Crush produces a powerful and long-lasting cerebral sensation. Orange Crush has a flowering time of 7 to 9 weeks.

According to the OCS website, ” High-quality sativa-dominant bud at a great price; Good Supply is taking it to the next level with Grower’s Choice.

Note:  We took a look at all the strains with Orange and it appears a dominant expressions to expect is happiness.

Light walk through

Grower’s Choice Sativa by Good Supply came with a 17.63% THC costing $25.45 for 3.5 grams of mystery sativa strain.  Packaged on February 27, 2020, the product was fresh with faint hints of citrus and pepper scent when broken up.  Test amount wa 0.26 grams, as usual.

For the first time in a while, the “high” starts slowly and not an accelerant.  The taste hints of orange.  It is a creeper and chugs along inching higher bit by bit for the first half hour.   There is very little body effects.  Our minds felt a sense of elevation and our thoughts flowed more freely.  We are calmer and happier?  Cerebral stimulation crest at the half hour mark into the session.  By 90 minutes, the decent is perceptible gliding to a touchdown in slightly less than 2 hours for us.

Happiness is most detectable from our interactions with “strangers.”  If happiness is present, interactions with strangers are extremely uplifting as conversations can create a harmonic oscillation where the participants can feed off each other’s to create a supernatural connection … cannabis magic at it’s best.  We could not put that to the test.  Happiness is so hard to detect when self isolated.

We have a lot of difficulty in identifying the key expressions with this strain, which makes us think it may be happiness.  We had to do a few takes on the recording session to try and dial in the effects.  On the 3rd attempt, we managed to dialed and calibrated the effects.  We experience similar difficulties reviewing WMMC Chocolope and that also has happiness as the main expression.  Grower’s Choice Sativa provided for us a medium grade Sativa “high” profile.

Activity pairing based on effect would suggest early morning with coffee slot?  Yea, this would work because it provides a mildly stimulated mind with a happy outlook on life.  This strain should go well with getting all the mundane stuff in life like laundry, vacuuming, washing … done.


Grower’s Choice Sativa by Good Supply (Aphria)

We have not written a bad review in a long time and this is trending to be a not so positive review.  Negative writing is tough for us especially on one of our favourite growers.  This is probably our least favourite strain from Good Supply.  The “high” felt flat.  This strain is not really resonating with us.  We got “high.”  Maybe the Covid-19 is putting us in a bad head space, which is affecting our views.

THC: 17.63%

Quality: 7.5

Intensity: 7.2

Duration: 7.6

Total: 7.4

Cost: $25.45 for 3.5 grams

Good Supply has always provided superior effects for low prices.  This was just “you get what you pay for.”  Our expectations of high quality from a low price product tainted our review.  For most vendors, this is what we would we expect.  From Good Supply, we expected more … a lot more.

On an investment note, the good news is Hexo announced closing of their $46 million financing today.   The bad news several public LPs have filed for bankruptcy protections like CannTrust, Beleave, JWC and Invictus to name a few.  If these companies come out of bankruptcy, the best scenario is they remain public and shareholders still have some skin in the game albeit a much smaller ownership.  The worse scenario is they go private and current public shareholders get zero.  “Drum roll” effect please ….
