Ready to tango with tantalizing, shifting aromas?
Introducing The Original Fraser Valley Weed Co Top Crop: a rotating indica showcase, consistently packing 20%+ THC. As the greenhouse dictates, your nose might be tantalized by sweet herbs one day, creamy citrus the next, or even a fruity gas twist. But how does it measure up against Fraser Valley’s celebrated MAC 1 or the favourites from Good Supply’s Growers Choice Indica?
As soon as we broke the seal, an unmistakably vibrant cannabis aroma wafted into the room. A delightful blend of spicy ginger intertwined effortlessly with the sharp undertones of diesel and possibly some hints of citrus. Far stronger and more intense than anticipated, we’re eager to find out if this alluring aroma translates just as wonderfully to its flavour.
Upon arrival, our Top Crop was elegantly housed in a medium-sized, bold red bag that came complete with a practical resealable zipper. A quick glance at the front label revealed essential details like the brand name, THC and CBD concentrations, the aroma description, and the growing method. Flip to the back, and there was a clear display of the package date, lot number, storage guidelines, and contact details for Pure Sunfarms Corp. A couple of minor hiccups, however, were the absence of a detailed terpene breakdown or the specific strain which most users would like to know.
As for the buds themselves? Simply put, they were a visual delight. Dense formations adorned in a tapestry of varying green shades, complemented by striking orange pistil hairs and a generous coating of glistening trichomes. These buds were meticulously trimmed and felt impeccably fresh – a surprise considering there was no humidity pack in sight. The texture? Soft, slightly spongy, and bursting with juicy trichomes as I gently pressed between my fingers. The caliber of these buds, especially at this price point, is undeniably impressive and their aesthetics scream top-shelf allure. We also thought the appearance was similar to Pure Sunfarms’ Area 51 strain which we reviewed a few weeks ago.
After grinding the flower, a delightful fruity spice aroma emanated, reminiscent of exotic orchards with a hint of zest. However, this delicate bouquet was soon eclipsed by a bold, gassy flavour profile. As we took a drag, the distinct sweetness of fruits teased the palate but was somewhat overshadowed by the assertive gas notes, which were unapologetically front and center. Yet, despite its robustness, the smoke was impressively smooth. Puff after puff, we were treated to a gentle smoking journey, with barely any coughing or discomfort to the throat. A masterful blend of potency and refinement.
Our bag of Top Crop from Fraser Valley came from lot number 03370 which was packaged on June 2 2023. Boasting a THC percentage of 25.8% and priced at a modest $99.95 for a generous 28 grams, it’s fair to say this offering exceeded our expectations. In the realm of budget ounces, this might just be among the most stellar find we’ve come across in recent times.
Upon indulging, the high felt like a serene wave of tranquility washing over us, enveloping the senses in a warm and soothing embrace. While the body reveled in relaxation, the mind meandered through a gentle haze, suggesting this strain might be best reserved for those evening hours, perfect for unwinding and basking in quietude. Considering the unbeatable price point, the substantial THC punch, and the overall pleasurable experience, we wholeheartedly vouch for this batch. However, a word to the wise: with strains rotating regularly, always keep an eye on the lot number to ensure you’re grabbing this particular flower.
