When I asked my budtender what was available in their "shake" packages - 14g - I was prepared to be underwhelmed a bit. It's not the top shelf product and it isn't handled or packaged that way. But I have been surprised a few times. This was one of them. Local grower Binske had worked a special with The Dispensary to offer these 1/2 oz packages at just under $60. There was *some* actual shake, but most were smallish popcorn buds. Some were unpopped kernel size. Still, the lab assay came in with a nice terpene profile I like and a respectable 29.07% THC for that sample.
While some of the flavors mentioned above were somewhat muted, not unsurprisingly, the effects most certainly were not muted. At all. Nice toke, smooth enough, decent nose and taste. But the blessed relief that came within one minute of the first exhalation was quite a surprise.
I'd bought it to cook with. That was a bit hasty, to consider baking with something so tasty. :)
10/10, would do it again.
