Kolab Project Dark Shadow Haze Review & Photos

Dark Shadow Haze from Kolab Project is a sativa-dominant cultivar with an aroma compared to earthy grapes and berries.

This Dark Shadow Haze is a sativa-dominant strain which is the result of a collaboration between Kolab Project and Safari Flower Co.

Created by crossing Grape Ape with Nevil’s Wreck, this flower is known for producing a thought-provoking cerebral high with relaxing physical sensations. Most users describe the flavour and smell as a combination of sugary grapes and berries mixed with a mild earthy undertone.

Let’s see how it compares to Kolab Project’s Kalifornia and Station House’s Amnesia Haze.

Kolab Project’s Dark Shadow Haze arrived in a medium sized black plastic bag with resealable zipper opening. Initially after we tore open the package there was very little smell so we let it breathe a few moments which helped us identify the aroma. Although not very strong, it was similar to a mild lemony grass with a herbal or earthy undertone.


Unfortunately, Kolab Project did not include a humidity shield inside the bag so the flower had begun to dry out. Almost all buds resembled larf with the exception of 1 or 2 decent but still small sized ones. Light, airy and fluffy but still covered in decent layer of trichomes. Visually the nugs looked passable but they were far from the best looking we’ve seen.


The flavour profile was decent which actually surprised us given the rocky start to this review. Finding an accurate way to describe the taste is tricky; but on both inhale and exhale there was a mild but distinct lemony citrus concentrated taste with an earthy undertone. Up to this point the flavour profile has been the best part of this product.


Our bag was a part of lot number 289 which was packaged on February 10, 2022. It’s listed with 25.9% THC content and priced at $29.50 for 3.5 grams. Even though labelled as a sativa, we found this one leaned more towards a hybrid given the mild physical high that were felt. After smoking our minds were still clear and focused with a very mild body high equivalent to having exhausted muscles after recovering from a workout. We’re split on this one so it’s probably worth grabbing at least once if you’re curious.

Since high school my friends and I have been recreational cannabis users so we decided to start Merry Jade after legalization in 2019. We review and photograph the different products then share them on this website. The rating system we use is called “SAFE” which stands for Smell, Appearance, Flavour and Experience. Each category gets a score out of 10.
