A Coffee replacement?

It’s about time 48North flowers, not pre-rolls, to arrive in Canada largest legal weed market, Ontario and the OCS.  Packaged on June 6, 2020, a month and a half ago, Green Crush by 48North Cannabis Corp., cost $34.95 for 3.5 grams, came with 22.4% THC and very faint floral scent.  Our test amount was 0.26 grams.

The “high” starts slowly with some increase energy and awareness at the end of the inhalation session.  Before we know it, we are deep into a torrent stream of consciousness swirling in a timeless vortex as reality slips away.  This is way better than coffee as a light lift of energy fills our body.   There’s joy and an outward bound optimism that can shine with great clarity of mind.  At the twenty minute mark, we entered the Green Crush world fully immersed.

This Green Crush “high” feels clean with a semi-debilitating euphoria embedded in strong time dilation.  It will be tough to be productive under the Green Crush influence.  Snap, snap, snap, time goes by quickly and we arrive at the one hour mark, already?   The “high” session lasted well past the two and a half hour mark and left us satisfied.

Activity pairing is anytime for coffee is a good time for Green Crush.  Actually, we would not use this as a coffee replacement because this is way better than coffee.  We would use Green Crush for social events, partying, dancing and general celebration of life.  Green Crush’s abundance of joy and outward bound optimism can be weaponized for tremendous social effects.

Would we buy this again? Yes.  We are surprised this strain was priced below $10 a gram.  Most craft growers’ products are priced well above the $11 range.  We like supporting local craft growers because we find their products superior in quality and effects.  Unfortunately many craft growers arrive on the OCS are already in distress.  Muskoka Grown is in bankruptcy court as their first product Glueberry OG hits the OCS shelves.  We hope 48North is in better shape.  With a craft quality product below $10 a gram, we recommend Fans of Sativa cannabis give this Green Crush by 48North a try.

On an investment note, we like to highlight Organigram July 21st, 2020,  financial release of a 22% revenue decline.  Their most interesting statement was ” As the Company adjusts its production methods to produce higher THC levels in the cannabis plants, the yield per plant is reduced by approximately 20%. ”  Also surprised by the market transition to larger formats, did Organigram think cannabis users liked 3.5 grams packages?  48North is on the opposite end of Organigram and represents what real passionate cannabis growers produce.  Good luck on 48N 2020 summer outdoor season.
