This strain is known for producing a tangy citrus aroma mixed with an equally sweet fruity flavour. If that combo sounds appealing then you can thank terpenes which are dominated by caryophyllene, limonene and myrcene. In terms of appearance, growers report Powered Donuts has lumpy bright green buds that are covered in a thick trichome layer. Indiva says this flower is grown hydroponically in a greenhouse with rockwool and a state-of-the-art LED lighting to assist natural sunlight.
So how does this indica compare to Indiva’s San Fernando Valley OG Kush?
The product arrived from Indiva in an industry standard black plastic container with security lid. We popped off the round top and detected a subtle but sweet scent that reminded us a bit of icing sugar. However as we analyzed further the zesty citrus this strain is known for became slightly stronger. Overall a pleasant smell but not anywhere near as strong as we expected (even though we could see a Boveda humidity shield at the bottom of the container).
Indiva’s Powdered Donuts at first inspection looks great. The buds were medium in size and covered in a very thick layer of white trichome crystals. However on the flip side they were also bone dry… this might be the driest flower we’ve seen so far and that’s saying something. In addition, the trim job could have been better as we noticed a fair amount of excess leaf which became more obvious with the shake at the bottom of the container.
The flavour might have been the most disappointing part of this product. Powdered Donuts lures you in with it’s sugary citrus aroma but then kinda falls flat by delivering a surprisingly plain taste. It hard to say for certain but this could be due to the dry state of the bud. Whatever the reason, the end result is a flavour that was nothing memorable and a rather harsh smoke.
Listed with 20.9% THC percentage and a price tag of $22.99 for 3.5 grams, we have mixed opinions about Indiva’s Powdered Donuts. On the one hand the price is very low and it definitely delivered a good overall high that included a mild cerebral buzz mixed with a relaxing feeling and a heavy body high creating that sleepy eyes sensation. But on the other hand the bud was extremely dry, had an expired humidity pack and was a harsh smoke. We’re in the process of creating case studies to show how humidity packs from different brands perform and why they should be included by licensed producers. More on that very soon.
