The aroma and flavor profile on this one is similar to Familia Funk if I had to compare it to a strain I had recently as they have many relatives in common. A combination of sweet earth and skunk with sharp undertones of fuel and spicy kush. Definitely a little funky like Steve Urkel himself. Joints... burn with a decent sized oil ring and produce a salt and pepper ash, making for a smooth and enjoyable smoke. Very stoney, euphoric effects, leaving the eyes low and the head heavy on the shoulders.
Flavor - The name being quite accurate to the flavor of lemon and blueberry, topped with a cinnamon brown sugar for an extra flavor kick which was a really tasty addition. The muffin was really good, no weed taste at all, not eve...n anything that emerged after
Potency - these have a dosage at 250mg per muffin, I honestly thought I was eating a regular tasty muffin especially after no results, then about an hour later it crept up on me. It was a decent buzz with some good euphoria effects, although it did still feel more like about half that dosage. A full solid night of sleep did follow that evening
Quality - once again, these guys make some super tasty edibles. The muffin did come with a slightly squished top but that didn't detect much and I'm sure they would be boxed up or ordering a larger quantity. Normally I eat gummy edibles but these are a great deal at $6 individually. Really fresh and soft, and still decently moist. I would also be curious to see where a double dose of these bad boys would take me. Well made baked goods that I will most likely be back to grip in the future
Appeal: Came in quite squished along with the other two samples so the bud doesn't look amazing but it is nicely covered in trichomes. Unfortunately the sample contained a seed which seems to have happened... to a few other people on here as well.
Smell: Definitely a skunky element to it, this one hits the nose pretty hard when I opened the bag. There's a healthy mix of spiciness to it which makes it quite appealing to me
Smoke: I smoke out of a bong so I can't really say too much about the quality of the burn, but my bowls burn mostly black. The bud contains some seeds and chutes which makes for harsher plant matter when you spark up.
High: Definitely an indica heavy buzz for me, I felt pretty couch-locked not long after I smoked. I can see why it says not for lightweights, it's a very heavy and relaxing high. It was a perfect late night smoke for me.
Notes: I covered the shipping cost for a sample pack from Onyx Phenos after they reached out to me. The harshness of the bud knocked the score down a bit but I'd love to try another version of this since the high was great.

- Strains :
Steve Hurkle Got to try out a few different strains from Onyx Phenos recently along with a couple edibles as well. This is Steve Hurkle, their staple indica and a crossing of Tahoe Og x Harlequin x Querkle.... Arriving very sticky and healthy looking, sporting a vibrant shade of green that’s followed up by darker green sugar leaves and a forest of twisting orange pistils. Terrific trichome coverage with minimal signs of handling, leaving the surface coated and greasy looking. A little extra sugar leaf but nothing major and the cure is great. I did find a few seeds in this sample which they do mention on their site but it seems like it would be more than 3-4 per ounce as listed considering I found three alone in one gram. It would be a bonus if they were viable but they don’t seem to be.

Joints burn with a decent sized oil ring and produce a salt and pepper ash, making for a smooth and enjoyable smoke.
I can see why this one is advertised as not for lightweights as it instantly changed my mood and brought on a flurry of yawns. Very stoney, euphoric effects, leaving the eyes low and the head heavy on the shoulders. Normally I would put this to the test again but the sample only allowed for a single session. There’s definitely some heavy indica potential with this one however.
Crunk Boat This Crunk Boat is a wicked cross of Purple Urkle x Bubba Kush x Tina bred by ExoticGenetix. Fluffy, light green buds that are topped with a vast amount of winding orange hairs and sticky trichomes. Some gentle purple streaks can be seen throughout as well. I did find a couple premature seeds in this one too as listed on the site.
A very interesting profile on this crunk boat, providing aromas consisting of sweet and funky berries accented by skunky gas. It subtly translates over to the taste though it’s ultimately jeopardized by the harsher smoke and darkish burn. This is unfortunate because there is definitely potential to be had but the flush and cure are a little off.
It packs a decent potency with very heady and uplifting effects, delivering social and mood boosting qualities that bode well for pretty much any time of the day as it remains very functional through the the entirety of it’s high.
UBC Chemo (Reno Chemo Pheno) This UBC Chemo is a select pheno of Remo Chemo and another one of Onyx Phenos staple strains. Possibly even their golden child as it ended up being my favourite of the three strains I tried. Beautiful, greasy appearance to these forest green buds, equipped with a heavy amount of resinous trichomes and light coloured pistils. Dense and sticky to the touch, basically rolling itself in a joint. Decent trim and cure to round it all up minus the extra foliage.
The profile of this UBC Chemo is very reminiscent of Bubba which I believe is in it’s genetics. Very earthy and sour, accented by dank notes of pine and kush. I like to refer to this terp profile as ’sweaty kush’, as it’s so pungent and musky, especially on exhale where it’s met with hints of sour pine. Definitely an acquired taste as it really does sting the senses. Clean burning and smooth smoking, resulting in a light ash and oily resin ring.
This one offers a slow building, yet potent high, excelling in physical effects and providing full body relaxation. It’s also paired with calming and sedating qualities that can offer some pain relief in larger amounts. Cerebrally uplifting as well, allowing you to peacefully drift off while glued to the couch. Definitely a strain to save for evenings as it can put one in a physically lazy state.
Classic Frosted Brownie 250mg This frosted brownie was a deliciously scrumptious treat that arrived extremely fresh and moist with a very subtle cannabis aftertaste. Definitely needs some discipline to not immediately devour straight away.
The effects were rather light however after consuming half, with the other half following a short while after. I did feel a euphoric and elated buzz kicking in minutes into eating the first 175mg but it plateaued after 20-30 min and resurfaced upon eating the second half for another short while. Perhaps more suited towards lower tolerance individuals or those not looking to get completely obliterated.
Lemon Blueberry Streusel Muffin 250mg Just like the Brownie I previously reviewed, this Lemon Blueberry Streusel Muffin was absolutely delicious. Not even in a ’delicious for an edible type way’ but just delicious. Super fresh and soft too with a moist bite and next to zero weed flavour. The only thing is that it arrived a little squished.
I found the potency and effects to be minor however and I’m not sure I would consider it to be a 250mg dosing. I ate the entire muffin after eating the brownie in two separate halves and wanted to see if it would hit harder but the results were similar. A light to medium euphoric high that sticks around for a solid 30 minutes before plateauing and dissipating. Definitely a tasty treat but not much more than that.
