Pura Vida was harvested on 5-28-21 and was tested by Steep Hill Labs on 6-16-21. This sample tested at 24.16% THC and 0.04 CBD. This five bud sample makes up a eighth of a Oz. There is a little room left on the label. It would be nice to have the quantification of terpenes on the label. It would help the bud tenders suggestions and the new patients as well. Lets form our AMCO High Opinion now.
Pura Vida, also known as Pure Life, is a genetic cross of Appalachian X La Pure Kush. That makes this an Indica Dominate Hybrid strain that was first cultivated by Bodhi Seed Co.
The sample is beautiful. Large semi-dense nuggets of a light lime green with a frost of glistening tricombs that are visible to the naked eye. The pistil formations are a golden red hue. The flower structure is kush like. AMCO gives the look a 9 out of 10.
The Pinenne scent in this Pura Vida is pungent and remarkable. It’s extremely potent scent can be detected in the back of your olfactory system. The sour fuel stench of lemonene is present and backed by the hint of myrcene. AMCO gives this stinky sample a 10 out 10. I’d wear this for cologne.
The amber tricombs in this strain shows me a longer grow cycle then I have seen them use before. The moisture content is satisfactory however a touch on the crispy side. I was pleased to see the trim job was better then the last review I done. The tricomb heads on the exterior of the bud is consistent with that on the interior. AMCO High Opinion of 9 on the Cure.
I rolled half a gram in a unbleached paper. Its flavors are very similar if not exactly like its smells. Lemonene citrus, pine and skunk flavors tangle together like no one’s business. It’s sure to please the pallet of even the most connoisseur of cannabis patients. The Taste is a AMCO High Opinion of 10 out 10. This mellow flavor will make a fan out of you.
The Terp profile of this strain would make me suggest it for pain symptoms involving the nerve system. In small doses, it may be effective on anxiety. In larger doses the Pinenene may increase some patients anxiety, so tread lightly. The heady euphoria is quite capable of curtailing a PTSD flair. After a large dose, prepare for the couch lock to come creeping in the side door and comfortably let you relax your muscle pains as well. AMCO High Opinion on effect is a 9.
My Bud tender, Cameron Lercher, and I talked terpenes for a short time today and his knowledge of the few terpenes we discussed was factual and correct as you may have seen me post; It’s my high opinion that the difference between a bud tender and a cashier is the knowledge of terpenes and the ability to suggest the correct ones for symptom control. The experience was top notch as always and this in house grown Pura Vida is something that Shawna should be very proud of. AMCO High Opinion average of 9.4 out of 10.
