Above Average – Muscle relaxation, some comforting head pressure, loose limbs. For me, body high-dominant with a focused head.
Over the last couple weeks I’ve had a handful of people reach out via DM to recommend I try this Gushers Pie #3 by Dime Bag Exotics. Apparently, the terps are supposed to be flying wild on this one. I have high expectations, so let’s see how it goes.
As promised, the nose on this one is very strong. It’s dominated by a perfume-injected blueberry zkittlez cut, while there’s a hint of musky mint and some rubber that shows up from the Gushers. Definitely a bit of floor cleaner in there to round it all out.
Structurally, the bud looks alright. There’s a handful of trichs that shine, but some seem to have lost their luster. On the breakdown, the bud feels real soft, almost a little too humid. I see a couple white spots here and there near the stem so I break out my jeweler’s loupe to get a closer look. Unfortunately, I spot a healthy amount white webbing spots that indicates, yes, mold has definitely gotten to this herb.
I haven’t mentioned mold whenever I’ve found this in the past, as “Health” of the bud has always been a hidden category for my personal notes… but I think we’re at the point now where companies need to be called out on sending suspect product out there. Sadly, I believe that over 99% of consumers can’t spot mold on their herb. It’s not going to kill you, but it sure isn’t healthy either. Moving on…
Combustion is definitely terp-heavy, as huge notes of citrus peel dryer sheet attack my mouth. There’s a blueberry wax lips note to it, while a hint of melted tire and funky dough interplay for a moment, but are not match for the bitter perfume that resides on my mouth afterwards. I absolutely hate these cuts of Zkittlez.
Damn, at 340° this Grandma’s perfume staunch is only heightened to its full potential, with the addition of floral blueberry. A hint of cooling mint lingers with some funky dough, but again, Grandma’s new bottle of blueberry perfume is sprayed on heavy.
I know some of you like these terps, but yeah, these aren’t for me. And with this mold issue, I can’t recommend enough that you stay away from this batch.
