From Leafly on God Bud, ” God Bud, originally from Jordan of the Islands, is a longtime favorite of cash croppers and medicinal users alike, providing large, dense, purple tinged buds on short, compact plants with heavy branching. A mix of Hawaiian, Purple Skunk, and the mysterious Canadian strain known only as “God,” this strain produces copious amounts of resin and a musky-sweet smell. God Bud is a potent indica-dominant hybrid that provides a strong euphoric high while tasting of tropical fruit with undertones of berry, lavender and pine. This strain was also produced under the name BC God Bud by Canadian outfit BC Bud Depot.

On Apple Jack strain, ” Apple Jack is a beautiful and popular cross of Jack Herer and White Widow. This potent combination embodies the uplifting clarity of Jack Herer while applying a warm, soothing relaxation to the body. This strain works wonders for patients and consumers with chronic physical pain and nausea. Apple Jack’s aroma, as you might guess, is one of sweet sliced apples with hints of skunk and earth.

A Royal Goddess

RC Royal Goddess by Royal City Cannabis Co. packaged on October 4th, 2020, cost $32.95 for 3.5 grams with 17.46% THC and apple scented?  It also came with a Boveda 58% humidity pack, which is a class act at this price point.  Our test amount was 0.26 grams.

The “high” starts with euphoria taking off a few minutes after inhalation.  It is a busy and noisy “high” giving us a sense of urgency … “Something is happening” and “We have to be somewhere doing something. ”   After ten minutes, our minds start to calm down a bit getting more focus and less buzzy.   Quietly, the Royal Goddess fully envelopes the mind with time dilation, creativity and euphoria.  Twenty minutes later, the Royal Goddess in her full regalia transports the user under her influence to a relaxed sunny world.  There is an understated intensity that overwhelms our senses without us knowing it.

Half an hour into the Goddess influence, reality transformed into a dreamy surreal blissful landscape.  RC Royal Goddess with its own unique blend of cannabis expressions is similar to hybrids like Jean Guy or Blue Dream, which give a sativa vibrancy wrapped in blissfulness.   This is an Indica delivering a sativa like “high” without the edginess.  At the hour mark, while the intensity did decline it was barely noticeable.

Activity pairing is best for the evening time slots.  RC Royal Goddess’s wakeful energy and blissfulness combine to make this strain accel in any evening activities from watching Netflix, a short sunset stroll, an after dinner session or just some “Me” time.


RC Royal Goddess by Royal City Cannabis Co.

Let’s begin by saying we are fans of Royal City Cannabis Co.  RC Royal Goddess is an interesting strain with a unique blend of cannabis expressions delivered with an understated intensity.   We don’t often mention “Taste” but this Royal Goddess tastes amazing.  Royal City Cannabis’s Orange Hill Special was also very tasty.

THC:  17.46%

Quality:  8.0

Intensity:  8.1

Duration:  8.0

Total: 8.03

Cost:  $32.95 for 3.5 grams

Would we buy this again?  Maybe.  Royal City Cannabis’s Royal Goddess is a decent product at an acceptable pricing, which is less than $10 a gram.  The problem is the Canadian legal cannabis market is raining cheap good weed.  A decent cheaper alternative would be Good Supply Monkey Glue, or Jean Guy, for $23.95 for 3.5 grams.  But, if you have not tried Royal Goddess, this maybe a good opportunity?

On an investment note, given the sudden lift in Cannabis stock after the US election, the Stock market is like no other markets.  When there is a “Sale”  with dropping stock prices, everybody runs away.  Raise the prices and everyone will want to buy.  Understand fear and greed and you will understand what drives the Stock Market.
