Quints.ca - Kush Medley - Mandarin Kush, Special #1 Kush, Lemon Kush Strains, and Blue Kush Shatter
Overall rating out of 10:
Ordering & Pricing:
This pack was arranged via Discord, so I cannot speak to the order process, however, the website looks to be fairly straightforward. Quints pricing varies pretty widely, as with most... MOMS, but there appears to be at least one option at every budget level currently.
Communication & Packaging:
Communication is prompt, professional, and polite; they seem like good people, and they are responsive to queries and advice. Packaging was really good; multiple vacuum sealed scent, and visible barriers. Not a huge fan of the single-use, paper/mylar combo sample bags, but I completely understand the economics of it.

Lemon Kush: https://i.imgur.com/KVF721L.jpg
Genetics: Master Kush x Lemon Joy Nose/Flavour: My sample was a tad muted but I definitely got hints of the citrusy/lemony/kushiness… Almost a bit of spice too; might just be my nose. Trim/Size/Density/Cure: Trim is okay, sample buds were tiny, very dry, due to what I suspect is age… This bud has a bit of an old look to it (slightly discoloured/lightly browned in spots) Lift/BuzZ: Proper kushy buzz, relaxing and fairly balanced between a body and head high. Potency/Quality: Quints lists it as AAA, and I might say AAA- or AA+, but they are pretty close, regardless, at $80oz, it’s one of the best deals I’ve seen lately for mids. Overall: 7/10. For value seekers, this is a good buy if you can handle the bud being a little older, and I noticed no problems with it beyond its age and relative dryness.
Special Kush #1: https://i.imgur.com/vb6bJA7.jpg
Genetics: OG Afghani/Pakistani Origins, from the Hindu Kush Mountain Region Nose/Flavour: Spicy/herby… Touch of sage. Trim//Size/Density/Cure: Bud size was popcorn (<1g), density was medium, trim was a bit scrappy, the bud was pretty dry and the trichs pretty oxidized looking: my feeling is that this was older stock as well. Lift/Buzz: Initial hit feels quite heady but it morphs into a couch-lockey body buzz fairly quickly. Potency/Quality: This strain isn’t currently listed for sale on the Quints website, but I’d probably put it around AAA potency. Overall: 7/10
Mandarin Kush: https://i.imgur.com/jngAPOI.jpg
Genetics: OG Kush x Master Kush Flavour/Nose: The teriyaki of weed. It has a really unusual sweet and sour thing going on, both in taste and smell. Trim/Cure/Size/Density: Trim is great, size was popcorn (<1g), dense as a neutron star (very high density), and the cure is very good, still nice and sticky on the inside. Lift/Buzz: It’s really hard to not just say “kushy effects,” cause that’s really what they are: calming, relaxing, anti-anxiety… Sort of a tingly body buzz that ran all the way down through the feet. Potency/Quality: Quints calls this a quad, and I’d say that’s pretty close. There’s gonna be a few guys who argue it’s not dank enough or large enough buds to be a true quad, but opinions are like assholes, and I personally reserve the top of the top for a AAAA+ rating, which to date, I don’t think I have ever given out. Nit picking aside, the quality is definitely at the upper’ish-end of cannabis. Overall: 8.5/10
Blue Kush Shatter (Sugar): https://i.imgur.com/zLk9rtt.jpg
Genetics: Blueberry x OG Kush Flavour/Nose: The terpenes are suspiciously strong, sweet and sticky. My initial assessment was that terpenes had been added back to the concentrate at some point, but Quints says that is not the case to their knowledge, so perhaps they are legitimate. Colour/Consistency: Pale amber, but not in a way that I am concerned it has been CRC filtered (colour corrected), I don’t believe it has. Consistency is sappy sugar at room temp. Easy to work with and dab. Lift/Buzz: Smalls dabs are nice and relaxing, large ones rip holes in spacetime. Potency/Quality: Surprisingly strong… I took a big ass dab as my first taste and it kicked my ass for a good 15 or 20 mins, dab sweats and disorientation. Good stuff. Overall: 8.3/10
Incentive for Customers:
Coupon codes, free-ship over $150, etc.
It’s early days, and I think given a little bit of time, the issues with sourcing older cuts will subside, but Quints definitely has some connects for higher quality bud and decent concentrates, and if they are willing to offer up $80 ounces and hit each budget tier, then there will certainly be things worth watching their website for.
Dense as a neutron star, this is the teriyaki of weed--has an unusual sweet and sour nose and flavour. Kushy/hybridized buzz, spacey and relaxing. Hits heavy and has good staying power. Cure was nice and sticky on the inside. Listed by Quints.ca as a quad and I’d say they are pretty close to o...n the money.
