Next up, we’re talking Highlands by Tweed, a proprietary variety that, well, just looks terrible. Visually, it sets the bar low, but let’s use a ‘wait and see’ approach. This could be a classic case of underpromising and overdelivering.
Highlands by Tweed is as dry as outer space, it seems to lack any detectable water content at all. Twenty percent of my gram came as shake, probably from friction or they were broken off from the buds during transport. The container has a 90 degree turn towards its neck, which is great for trapping all the shake inside.
Structure of Highlands was good. Rounded like an indica. I would be remised if I didn’t mention the brown leaves hanging off the bud, which made it look suspiciously bad. Again, buds are so dry they ground to dust.
I should also note that I had to dissect these buds using tweezers and a macro lens before I felt comfortable using it. Which is unusual. A discerning person in the same situation may have just thrown it out, which I also considered doing.
I thought the Highlands’ scent was its best feature. Some pleasant earths running parallel with rugged fuel tones, perhaps some peppered spices in the upper ranges of the profile.
Highland’s taste is fairly null and void in the vaporizer. There are some slight earths to be found but they are subtle. Similarly when smoking where it burns clean, but lacks taste.
Tweed’s Highlands cost me $12.50 for the single gram. You could go and get the THC Biomed Landrace Indica for about $6 per gram, it has similar stats and I would argue, better quality.
