Strain Integrity

According to Leafly, ” A true A-List cannabis strain, Blueberry’s legendary status soared to new heights after claiming the High Times’ Cannabis Cup 2000 for Best Indica. The long history of the strain goes back to the late 1970s when American breeder DJ Short was working with a variety of exotic landrace strains. However, throughout the decades of Blueberry’s cultivation, the genetics have been passed around, due in large part to DJ Short working with multiple seed banks and breeders. The sweet flavors of fresh blueberries combine with relaxing effects to produce a long-lasting sense of euphoria. Many consumers utilize Blueberry to help contend with pain and stress, while connoisseurs and growers admire the strain for its colorful hues and high THC content.

From the OCS website, ” Lagoon is a green indica-dominant variety of Blueberry from Hexo with light orange hairs and very strong THC potency potential. It’s grown in a hybrid greenhouse in Gatineau, Que. with custom feed solutions, then hand-manicured and sorted with a slow drying and curing process. This ensures the best possible flavour profile, which includes mango, lemon grass, hops and thyme from the myrcene, and black pepper, cloves and balsam from the caryophyllene in its terpene mix.  ”

Another price drop review

Lagoon aka Blueberry by Hexo is a classic dreamy rejuvenating Indica.  A 29% price drop to $18.96 for 3.5 grams, Lagoon had 17.11% THC packaged on August 12, 2019, the flowers were a bit dry have very faint hints of floral scent.

The “high” is a dreamy and relaxed world where all our stress melts away.  After inhalation, we could feel a lighter sense of self and a happier disposition.  The lifting energy effect starting in the head and upper body slowly strengthens as time dilation sets us drifting into a classic Blueberry world.   Our heart beat feels slower as euphoria wraps around us like a healing blanket.  For the first half hour, we gently bump along the path towards increasing blissfulness.

While all the Blueberry effects are here, they were not very intense.  Dissatisfied, we amped up the volume to 0.36 grams from 0.26 grams the next day and it worked.  Lagoon scales very nicely as the effects were more intense and enjoyable.  In our 2nd session with 0.36 grams, our inhalation session took over 10 minutes and by the end of the session we were “Baked.”  The higher intensity produced a more wakeful and more mind numbing sweetness aka euphoria.

Activity pairing favours relaxing social encounters or self-reflecting rejuvenation moments.  Lagoon scales nicely and at higher doses we get a strong awakening energy, which lends itself well to evening activities like dancing?  Unencumbered with intense self-introspect that comes with creative cerebral fireworks typical of Sativas,  Indicas puts us into a relax and carefree cerebral space with euphoria and happiness to Dance away the stress.


Lagoon (Blueberry) by Hexo

Lagoon aka Blueberry is on a 29% price drop and at a price equivalency of $151 an ounce is a good deal.  While our first impression was underwhelming, our second attempt delivered what we would expect from a Blueberry strain, a powerful happy relaxing blissful experience.

THC:  17.11%

Quality:  7.8

Intensity: 7.8

Duration: 7.8

Total: 7.8

Cost:  $18.96 for 3.5 grams

Would we buy this again?  Yes, this is a great budget strain.  The prices of legal Cannabis is now cheaper than grey market equivalence.   We have reviewed several Hexo discounted products and all of them are competitive on pricing and effects.  When we see prices below $20 for 3.5 grams delivering effects like UP’s Edo, a Hexo brand, there are no equivalent products in the grey market at these prices.  And, legal cannabis is safer because it’s tested.  Legal cannabis is finally meeting consumer needs.

On an investment note, in addition to selling the UP facilities for $10.25 million, Hexo is in the midst of raising another $34.5 million At-The-Market (ATM) offering resulting in a downdraft in their stock price.  While revenues growth is strong, Hexo is still losing money.  As a consequence, Hexo is extremely aggressive in rightsizing their balance sheet, which is excellent.
