Weed Review: Hell's Angels' Lavender

We got an 8th of Lavender for $50 from a friend who told us it was allegedly grown by the Hell's Angels. Lavender is genetically engineered by Soma Seeds, and won 1st prize at the 2005 Cannabis Cup in the Indica category.

Pre-Smoke Examination:
The buds are long, twisty, and bulbous. Also, they are not extremely dense, and too dry to be fluffy. The smell is quite similar to real Lavender, and the smell is strong even through the zip-lock bag. The buds are well trimmed and there isn't any shake. The orange hairs are bright and practically fall off the nugs.

Post-Smoke Examination:
The buds are on the dry side, so you have to grind it slowly, or just break it up by hand. The smell when broken apart is extremely amplified and tingles the back of your nose the same way as rubber cement does. The bowl burns fast, giving you an extremely thick hit, and tastes light and sweet, a little like honey.

The high is fairly decent after your second bowl, and is more frontal in the skull. You feel it right behind the eyes. It's not the greatest weed, or the most top shelf around, but at $50 an 8th, it is definitely a good deal. We only wish we had our hands on it when it wasn't so dried out, but such is life.

Look for Hell's Angels' Lavender in your local pot guy's living room!
