Cold Snap #7 by Enigma Extracts - CannaPanda - July 2023
Caked but over priced and the ash was really bad. Not outright dark ash but it's in the darker colour and it's really tough to smoke without coughing. Aroma smell like herb and mint but I couldn't determine the taste. When I could smoke the effect doesn't heat that hard but they did ...get you somewhere.
When you open these beautiful glass jars they give you , the smell is pure bliss. You are met with a gassy fruity explosion of terps. I don’t know why but I get like a pina coloda smell off of it with gas in the background . These buds are perfectly cured. Squishy and sticky on the inside but you ...can bust them up so perfect with your fingers. I’ve noticed a lot of bud is too wet, you have rip it apart, I like this cure a lot more. The taste !!! Oooo lala , it tastes like a funky pina colada to me and I’m digging these unique terps. Smooth, clean hits with massive lung expansion that you instantly get the forehead sweats from. At 180 an 0z (10% discount)I am very happy with this purchase.
Pink Sugar Cookies by Enigma Extracts - HGA - April 2022
my friend made his 4/20 order of a few strains with HGA, given the excellent deals they had going, and was kind enough to offer me some Pink Sugar Cookies from his order. this was my first experience with the GSC x Sugar Cane cross, and my first time trying Enigma Extracts too. i was pleasantly surp...rised, from initially receiving and checking out the bud through the entire process of breaking it down to combust. to be clear, this review isn’t for the incentive, just because i was stoked about the quality, and for the love of the game
the nugs themselves are gorgeous. overall, there was a few grams of popcorn and some shake in the bag, but there was also a whole cola and a bunch of buds like those pictured above. when ground you get some of the most striking pink you’ll ever see. not the classic purple stuff, but really pink. it’s kinda funny, considering how many pinks they have had available recently. i myself was sitting scrolling through the indica options for so long. (in the end i went for an ounce of the super pink myself, but that’s for later).
definitely a real pleasant hybrid high, and one that rollers will appreciate as enjoyable in all the sensory ways. i’m talking tactile, olfactory, and definitely visually, all of that. perfect moisture and cure. real pleasant hybrid high, smooth smoke, goes good with a cold coffee drink mid afternoon if you’re into that. i found myself buzzed and smiling, a fuzzy, not incapacitating high. honestly might go back for more myself, been saving the last nug left for two days now.
Super Pink pictures
and as promised, for the ounce of Super Pink. this was not one of those (however infrequent) cases of a strain being marked up to AAAA- over there. a little leafy, sure, but those few dark leaves left definitely functioned to protect some very sticky, purple and dark green caked bud. a few thick, round big ones, majority mediums and a few smalls, hardly any shake. the quality was the same throughout, excellent. that seems to be an HGA niche: an indica marked quad A- or similar, with a slightly messy trim on otherwise high quality bud, for a killer deal because of it.
it took me a while to decide on a strain, because HGA had a bunch of pink crosses with classic heavy indicas listed. eventually i went with Super Pink, which came overnight from BC to the GTA with free Purolator shipping. with a $10 off newsletter coupon stacked with the 4/20 sale price (still on i think?), this is officially one of the best $100 ounces i’ve ever smoked.
(an aside: the multifaceted issue of a surplus of pinks on the market in canada is a topic for another discussion. renaming strains, even more so. but in this instance for me, and especially with HGA, reading descriptions and reviews you can often get real deals on hard hitting pink crosses. i can see the issues, but also, i’m one of the many, many consumers who primarily seeks potent indicas to smoke, and for that purpose i can see why pinks have been going around like hotcakes for the last few years, and how the idea to cross them with classic OGs, Grandaddy Purps, Death Bubbas and the like makes sense.)
perfect moisture for any purpose. burns a little hot in a bowl, no notes at all for the joint; white ash regardless. the nose is gassy with hints of vanilla. the taste is where that vanilla really shines, and some more sweetness comes out a lot more. the slight taste of OG is nice but it’s got more of the classic Pink in my opinion. hard hitting, sticky, definitely what i was looking for, and for a steal. shoutout to HGA as always, the consistency is appreciated.
