Gifted Curators offers “DC weed at its finest.” One of our cannabis connoisseurs, Kush-n-Pain, is sampling strains from Gifted Curators to review for Urban Aroma readers. Read on for Kush-n-Pain’s review of the Kush Kolectiv Dos Si Dos Delta-8 pre-roll.
Dos Si Dos Delta-8 Pre-Roll
Delta-8-THC (∆8) flowers are gaining in popularity as an alternative to the still federally controlled Delta-9-THC (∆9). Delta-8-THC is a chemical compound made through a synthetic process of breaking down Delta-9-THC. The results are a less psychoactive flower that still connects to the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is responsible for the distribution of hormones and general systemic body balance.
As this is a pre-roll review, aromas, bud sight, density and colors don’t apply.
Two Tokes Test
The flavor is bland, though it stinks up the joint like regular weed. I am a fan of Do Si Dos and have enjoyed them as Delta-9-THC buds and Moonrock Blunts. Only the spicy caryophyllene and perhaps the earthy/woodsy myrcene and linalool can be distinguished by taste. It’s a cool smooth smoke without choking effects.
The experience of this Kush Kolectiv Delta-8 pre-roll is a diminished head high which can be felt in the brain stem mostly. If you’re looking for an intense mental ride, forget about it. This is what we used to call “kinda” or “pretendica.” It’s mostly a muddle-headed feeling, reminiscent to the end of a high without sleepiness. However, the body’s nervous and muscular systems are relaxed as the aforementioned terpenoids take effect.
The cerebral effects last for about 40 minutes and dissipate quickly. I wouldn’t say this is fun but perhaps useful for stress/anxiety. Whilst this will have its proponents amongst noobs and the productive types, (∆9) smokers won’t be amused. I was told by my nephew that it’s difficult to detect a difference between(∆8) and (∆9) THC. This may be true for some, but not me.
Rating: I suppose this is ideal for the functional toker, but on the Ephrata 1-10 Scale I give this a meh…. The medical value is present and gets a 7.5 as it often is paired with CBD to gain greater value.
