Exotic Gas is a newer hybrid strain that was created by crossing Headband with Rockstar.
We were not able to find much information on this cultivar except what was provided by The Loud Plug brand. They described the buds as being a frosty, lime green colour with specks of purple dotting throughout. In terms of flavour profile The Loud Plug says to expect a piney taste combined with a skunky aroma. This is largely due to the dominant terpenes being Caryophyllene and Limonene. Exotic Gas is our first encounter with The Loud Plug so we’re very curious about the quality.

The product arrived in a medium sized purple bag with resealable zipper top. We ripped open the package and detected the aroma of gas with mild skunky undertones that was not pungent or too overpowering. Although this sounds like a bad thing, it’s really not as we find sometimes strains with gassy origins can be a bit too potent.
In terms of appearance The Loud Plug has done a nice job with this strain. These buds were all smaller than popcorn but at the same time very firm and dense like little pebbles. The colours were bright with clear specks of purple on the tips that contrasted well against each other. Covering the nugs was a healthy layer of frosty trichomes and since they included a moisture shield in the bag we found the flower maintained freshness pretty well.
The best way to describe the flavour profile of Exotic Gas is to imagine you’re about to take a sip of freshly poured soda pop. When you bring the glass to your lips and breath in; getting the carbonation popping above the beverage as your inhale. That is what the Exotic Gas flavour felt like to us. Interestingly enough we did not detect much of the pine flavour described by The Loud Plug.
The Loud Plug’s Exotic Gas strain symbolizes what a good hybrid means. Listed at 26.6% THC content, this flower delivered a high that was about 60% body and 40% mind. The body got a strong vibrational feeling throughout which tended to distract regularly from the blank thought induced mental state. Between the flavour, experience and price point ($34.97 for 3.5 grams), we recommend giving this one a try.
