Our flagship sativa, Kushberry Cheesecake is one of a kind. A unique cross of Alien Moonshine and UK Cheese yields frosty buds that exude sweet notes of blueberry and cream. Consistently tested as one of our highest THC content strains, this sativa will leave patients with a euphoric body buzz and sharp, cerebral high. – Los Angeles Kush
[based on the transcript of video, edited for clarity]
Welcome to the red bench, it’s time for another Red Bench Review. Today we’re going to be talking about Los Angeles Kush’s Kushberry Cheesecake. This is a strain that’s a cross between Alien Moonshine and UK Cheese. It’s a Sativa.
This high-end herb ran me about $55 when I picked it up at the collective the other day. Let’s check it out. It says “no seal no deal” [on the box], so let’s just open that. [breaks seal and pulls out jar]
By the way we have close-ups coming up here in just a second, so hang on.
[close-up. Jon shows off the box and the jar]
In my mind that’s an awfully large jar.
I hate to harp on people’s packaging but really if the jar was half the size that eighth would look much more impressive, instead it looks like… oh, I guess that’s an eighth in there… we’re gonna measure it and find out. We’ll let you know.
Let’s give it a smell.
Mmm… mmm. That’s some cheese! That’s some stinky cheese! …and if you know what I mean, that’s a good smell of stinky cheese. Mmm.
Let’s just dump it out here and take a look at what’s inside the jar. It’s looks like we’ve got four good-sized nugs and a couple of little pieces. The nugs are very dense, extremely dense, you can’t even squeeze them. You’ve got to respect the herb. You don’t want to mess it up, but I am putting a little squeeze on trying to get the feel for them.
Well, let’s weigh this out, and take some photos and we’ll be right back.
[photo break, eighth weighed in a 3.47 grams]
I’m in a wonderful cloud right now of stinky cheese. I don’t know what Alien Moonshine smells like. I’ve never smelled it before, so I can’t detect it’s lineage, so to speak, but I do detect the UK Cheese. That’s something I’ve smoked a number of times in the past and really have enjoyed the effects of UK cheese.
[close-up of Jon cutting up the herb]
I cannot wait to smoke this it smells so good. Let’s just put some quickly in the bong now. I’m already half-way to high just by smelling this. They really, really are good at this, the Los Angeles Kush people. I’ve smoked this before and I’d say this is totally consistent with what I smelled before.
Let’s move the tray out of the way and get our hemp wick. Hemp wick is, as you know, a very handy way to get the complete flavor of the herb. Butane will affect the flavor of the herb and hemp wick will help deliver the taste you want. And the taste is what I want right now. Here we go…
[one bong rip later]
Mmm, that was smooth herb! No feeling in the back of the throat, but a smooth feeling… it gave me a little bit of a cough at the end there, but that was because I took a pretty big bong rip.
The flavor was subtle, wonderful, almost like Gouda [cheese]. Very smooth… maybe like a smoky Gouda.
I already feel it going to my head. It’s like the brain cells feel like they’re popping, like the synapses are all excited up there – they’re like, “ooh party time”.
Let’s take a second rip because that first one was just so tasty…
[one more bong rip later]
Let me sit on this for a few minutes, we’ll be back.
[10 minutes later]
Alright, well it’s been about ten minutes and I’ve been sitting here enjoying this herb immensely.
The flavor is still resonating a little bit my mouth with taste of cheese, smoky cheese.
The effects of it have gone to my head – it’s actually sharpened my senses. I really feel like I could get some writing done. I could get to a creative project. I could go do something… the Sativa effects are really strong.
I don’t know what else to say about this except it’s a very good herb. I’m gonna very much enjoy smoking these nugs I’ve got sitting here and when that runs out I’ll probably go get some more because it’s that good!
Anyways, speaking of “it’s that good”, how about we go out with one last bong rip of the Kushberry Cheesecake from Los Angeles Kush.
Until next time, best of health.
