Today we’re reviewing our first Sev7n product and unfortunately aside from the information provided by the brand we were unable to dig up much on Sev7n Island Sugar. However we did learn they are the first licensed Indigenous cannabis company in Canada.
Sev7n describes Island Sugar as being an indica-dominant strain with high levels of CBG and THC. It features a tangy citrus aroma combined with a sweet, fruity flavour. In terms of appearance they indicate the buds are darker in colour with a frosty sugar-coating of trichomes. So how does Sev7n’s Island Sugar smoke?
The product (called Island Sugar or Kawehnoke Otsi’Kheta) arrived in a medium sized green plastic bag with resealable zipper top. We ripped open the seal and took a deep inhale and detected a very mild aroma of sweet white sugar in a paper bag, just like those little sugar packs in restaurants.
Dumping out the contents of the bag was a big disappointment. You’ll see what I mean in the photos below. If the first thing that grabs your attention is the stems and kinda gross looking buds, then you’re not alone. The nugs were light, fluffy and leafy but also seemed to be stale or on the verge of going bad. There was a light trichome layer the caught our eye initially but definitely not the frosty coating we were expecting.
Given the look of this product we were less then thrilled to smoke it, but the show must go on. Luckily the flavour profile was a close match to the aroma and not the appearance! Sev7n’s Island Sugar tastes like a spoon full of sugar which is mild in intensity combined with a subtle herbal undertone.
This product was under $30 and is listed as having 24.2% THC content, but even so… we’re kinda mixed on it. Island Sugar delivered a strong high that was very relaxing and included a very mild cerebral high with a moderately strong body buzz. But this product seems to have disappeared. We ordered it from OCS on October 30, 2021 and as of writing this review (November 14, 2021) Island Sugar has disappeared from their website. Even though it provided a decent experience for the money ($29.95 for 3.5 grams), we recommend passing on it and instead try Sev7n’s Island Cherry strain.
