Earlier this week we reviewed Z-Splitter from Ghost Drops and thought it was pretty solid so today we’re checking out their other strain… First Class Funk.
This potent hybrid flower was created by crossing the popular GMO with the gassy Jet Fuel Gelato. Many describe the aroma as dank with a pungent funky creamy fragrance that is compounded by the smell of jet fuel. In terms of flavour profile, the funky smell translate into the gassy, musky and dank aftertaste. Ghost Drops describes the buds as large, bright green with dark undertones, bright orange pistils and a thick layer of diamond like trichomes.
We’re curious how this compares to something like Qwest’s Stuffed French Toast which is another premium priced hybrid.
Check our review, rating and photos below.
The product arrived from Ghost Drops in the same pink glass container as our previous order Z-Splitter. We popped off the lid and were immediately struck by the strength of the smell and it’s pungent musky aroma. This is one of those flowers that stinks up the entire room in a matter of seconds. Once we adjusted to the smell we could also detect some gassy notes and a very subtle undertone of herbal.
Just like the previous product from Ghost Drops, this one also included a humidity shield which definitely seems to have helped maintain the freshness of their flower. The buds were small to medium in size, medium green with dark green leafy highlights, spongy but dense to the touch and covered in a thick white trichome layer.
They weren’t kidding when they said First Class Funk has a funky flavour profile. During inhale it starts off with a very brief citrus note before being overpowered by a potpourri-type musky gas with hints of floral. Although the smell is stronger, the flavour reminded us of a dank funk.
Listed with 25.1% THC content and a price tag of $54.95 for 3.5 grams, we found Ghost Drops First Class Funk delivered a very strong high but at a price many users will not pay. This flower leaned into the cerebral side more then the physical, even though the physical effects were relaxing and felt most prominently around the eyes. The cerebral effect was a bit stronger producing a clear-minded feeling but also difficult to stay focused. We like this product but not the price.

The Ghost Drops First Class Funk was probably the dankest weed I have ever seen. The smell is super skunky with a very gaseous aroma that follows suit with its flavor that translates into a smorgasbord of flavors. We got a bit of wood, citrus, something floral and some good ole fashioned earth to top it off. Buds come in a fluorescent pink glass bottle with a Integra Boost humectant in the bottom. Due to its extreme dankness it has a very moist feeling to its dark greens and oranges. It was somewhat of harsh experience on the throat. I was using an Arizer Solo II with a 6″ H20 Bubbler and I had to turn the temp down from my usual 190 C to 185-187 C. Usually the first couple hits of any strain through the vape is usually all terps but with First Class Funk those hits seem to drag on forever with a flavor that is as intense at it is impressive. At 31.2% THC you know this is going to deliver a total knockout punch to the old noggin and believe me it does. It offers the kind of mind job one experiences after watching Total Recall too many times. A very potent Indica stone awaits its victims. Sadly I don’t have any pictures yet but I will take more in the future.
“after watching Total Recall too many times”… LOL. Do you like the Arizer units? That was one of the vape brands I was checking out, looking for a decent quality one.

Dave my man, yes the Original Total Recall was a very confusing movie. Its actually better understood while stoned hence my reference.
About the Solo II, I was reluctant to try Arizer products because the glass is so fragile but I am glad I did because out of all the vapes I’ve owned its has the most direct and cleanest airpath. You actually load your herb into the glass stem, not the bowl. Air comes in through the top and goes straight through the herb into the mouthpiece. Much smoother that way and true convection process too. They are built well and really easy to use with a broad temp range and great battery life.
For a good budget vape I recommend the Flowermate V5 Nano (has replaceable battery and nifty mouthpiece storage) and the Weecka Fenix (Utillian 720 is a rebrand for twice the amount)
For a powerhouse portable the Boundless CFX. Huge oven, timer, massive LCD display with a large aftermarket adapter group.
For pure flavor the Linx Gaia with its entire airpath made of quartz.
Best Desktop Vape: Vapir Rise 2.0 Ultimate
Great White North Vape Company has all the water attachments you could ask for. Good idea for high temp vaping or vapes with short airpaths.
Awesome, really appreciate your insight on this. Going to be ordering one this weekend.
