Tweed Balmoral Review

Balmoral from Tweed is a hybrid strain of UK Cheese that’s grown inside their Smiths Falls, Ontario greenhouse.

Tweed Balmoral is described as being a THC-dominant hybrid species with a very strong THC potency. Of course with a description like that we quickly placed our order so we could review.

Tweed informs us that the terpenes beta-caryophyllene and humulene are both found in Balmoral which combine to produce a spicy aroma of hops and cloves. Aside from that not much other information was available. So how does this cultivar compare to Tweed’s other hybrids like their Green Cush or Royal Dankness strain?

Tweed’s mystery black box of Balmoral gave us no clues as to what to expect. Its terpene profile gives the possibility of black pepper and hops. I can say it definitely didn’t smell like that. My honest first thought when smelling this after opening was old leather polish? Probably due to the lack of a moisture pack. Thankfully that first impression of musky stale air was quickly replaced by a 2nd and then 3rd whiff of a mild lemony grass or pine aroma.


After dumping out the buds from the container we had some clear thoughts. This bud is definitely dry as its flaky, shaky-looking, and fluffy. These photos are a great example of lighting making buds look far more colourful than they are. In reality, these buds where a dark olive green, the trichomes weren’t visible, and the red hairs made sparing appearances if at all.


For this strain of Balmoral from Tweed, the flavor when smoked is a mild lemony pine. Definitely not overpowering but not underwhelming. It was just okay.


Overall, the mild clear buzz left me calm and didn’t hang around long. I would say again it was just okay. Having had much better and much worse, I don’t regret trying this but won’t be picking up this strain again anytime soon. You can find better strains from Tweed.

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.

Have your say!
