Physical Characteristics: A short joint with a crutch (i.e., filter).
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this sample, so I will not be providing the specific terpene levels for this product.
When I pulled on it in its unlit state, I tasted a light combo of dank, sweet lime. When smoked, this multi-forms joint tasted mildly of tart, sweet, skunky lime. This product was 6 months old, so the flower had degraded quite a bit, but the kief and wax still provided some tastiness, though not nearly as much as if it were fresher. At its freshest, this Lime Sorbet tastes exactly like intense bitter-sweet key lime pie. This joint burned evenly.
I don’t typically buy pre-rolled joints because joints have a short shelf life and dry out very quickly. However, in the case of these roman candles, the bud can degrade but the kief and wax compensate to some degree for that degradation, which helps to keep the joint’s flavors ‘alive’ so to speak.

Effects: Not as powerful as the extract, but stronger than just the flower, these effects are a powerful mind/body experience that feels like about an even split that favors the mind a tad. And while the high is quite potent, the experience is pleasant. In the case of this sample, the effects were abnormally short-lived, which I assume happened because the joint was six-months old.
May Help With: Helped with mood and fatigue. May also help with stress, focus, mild-to-moderate pain, depression, appetite (and more)
Unlike many multi-form cannabis products that function more as a novelty, this one was useful and effective. This sample would have received at least a 4/5 overall rating if it had been much fresher. 6 months is way too old for any joint to survive - infused or not, no matter how tightly sealed it was packaged.
