Strain Integrity

According to Leafly, ” Candyland, also known as “Kandyland,” is a sativa marijuana strain bred from Granddaddy Purple and Bay Platinum Cookies. Golden hairs weave through Candyland’s thick coat of sugar-like trichomes and highlight the compact, camouflage-colored buds. This strain grows well indoors and out, and patients turn to Candyland when trying to moderate pain, muscle tension, and sour moods. Candyland offers uplifting and stimulating effects, making it a perfect strain for social gatherings or creative pastimes.

From the OCS website, ” Bred from the classic strains Grandaddy Purps and Bay Platinum Cookies, our CNDYLND grows heavy colas, each looking like they were rolled in crystals with orange hairs woven throughout. CNDYLND combines a sweet start with a pungent, piney finish, giving this strain a unique and earthy nose. We pack our flower in a NitroTin to help preserve the bud until you’re ready to use it.

Party Sativa

CNDYLND (Candyland) by Contra Band (The Valens Company) packaged on November 30th, 2021, cost $44.95 for 3.5 grams with 22.0% THC and a sweet floral candy scent.  Our test amount was 0.26 grams.

CNDYLND’s “high” starts with a euphoric buzzing and an energy pickup.  Time distortion was immediate, which quickly decoupled us from reality.   As the intensity increases, creativity chaos ensued.  At the 10 minute mark, Candyland is a noisy creatively chaotic and euphoric wonderland.   We also have “Joy.”  Everything we expected from Candyland is here.

In real world testing, CNDYLND provided a wide awake euphoric energy to walk for miles without purpose.  Our shopping experience was executed flawlessly.   CNDYLND is a functional wake & bake “high.”   We got two hours of medicated benefits with another hour of chill vibes.

Activity pairing is best in the day time slots.  CNDYLND can excel in large social settings and group activities.  For some people, this strain’s potent cerebral stimulation may trigger panic/anxiety attacks.
