Point Break from Qwest Reserve is a potent indica-dominant with dense buds and a very strong high.
It was created when Tropicana Cookies was crossed with Trophy Wife and is known for having an aroma similar to creamy mint oranges. In terms of flavour profile, when taking their first inhale many users report the taste being similar to oranges while changing to a stronger fuel flavour on exhale. One important consideration about this product is the price. Qwest Reserve’s Point Break was $69.99 for 3.5 grams, making it one of the most expensive half quarters we’ve ever purchased.
Not long ago we reviewed Qwest’s Ex-Wife strain and thought it was pretty good.
So how does this compare to this brand’s other premium priced strains like Qwest Stuffed French Toast?

The product arrived in industry standard plastic container and box – we’re definitely not a fan of this double packaging as it’s just wasteful. Nothing on the exterior would make you think this product was double the price of the majority of competitors. Opening the lid released a mild but interesting aroma of of sweet oranges and with a floral/herbal undertone. Given the price point we expected something stronger, however the smell was still quite pleasant.
Visually Point Break from Qwest Reserve had some great and not so great points. When you look at this bud, it is very colourful with vibrant bright green leaves, orange hairs and a heavy frosty trichome coating with purple highlights, this definitely hits above average. However on the flip side some of the buds were quite stringy and stemmy which again was a bit disappointing for a premium level product with an incredibly high price.
Now things started to get interesting. Point Break has a remarkably potent flavour profile. It started as a light creamy taste that blended seamlessly into sweet oranges with a hint of the peel. Very tasty and much stronger then the smell. The smoke itself was quite smooth however due to the potency some users may still hack a bit.
Point Break from Qwest is an excellent product except for the inflated price (the same complaint we had about their Sunset Mac strain). This product delivered a potent creeper high that packed a strong mental fog while also delivering a very strong physically-heavy body buzz. This product would probably be too strong for daytime unless you have an elevated THC tolerance. Qwest Reserve’s Point Break was great and the experience should have been a 9 or 9.5 out of 10 but the price point (even more expensive then Citizen Stash’s MAC-1) gives us hesitation to recommend this product fully.
