Doing an Ogen Freshly Baked review today, this is Freshly Baked #26, their cake-type strain.
I’m late on this, the product was released a while ago, and it’s been on my list since; that’s the buyer motivation.
Interesting part of this review was the dispensary I bought it at, Value Buds in Calgary. The price was $26 and change, for 3.5g.
Using CannStandard data, as June 1 2021, we’ve found this 3.5g SKU of Ogen Freshly Baked #26 is listed in 35 stores in Alberta at an average price of $39.12, or $11.18 per gram. The provincial online web store, Alberta Cannabis, lists it a bit cheaper than this average at $34. Of the 35 stores in Alberta I could find listing this product, all were listing for over $30, save for one; Lake City Cannabis in Lincoln Park.
Value buds sold me the one I review today at about 33% less than the average, $26.46 or $7.56 per gram. The $7 price point is good for an eighth size, or half-quarter for most of my audience. Check it out in the price stats below for Ogen Freshly Baked #26, although good, this price is only about 15% lower than the average price I’ve paid for a 3.5g package. I’d tell you the sweet spot for this package size is about $23, so this price point is right in that zone.
Olfaction is the best part of this offering. It brings the typical flavours you might associate with ‘cake-type’ tastes, mixed with prominent citrus notes, which tend to stick out amongst the soft earths and gritty gas. Character resides in the space between the top end gas, the mid range citrus and the typical sweet earths, but is pulled towards the citrus side; that’s why you might choose this over the nearest Cake, or Pink Cookies competitor.
Visuals are also fairly close to top-notch on this product. This is not representative of my other reviews of this producer’s product, the two I had purchased previously were not as stellar looking and didn’t have the full shape.
On price; if you pay under $40 for this there’s a good chance you’re beating the average. The best price I could find is about 33% below the average; anywhere below $30 is about the best you can do.
I found this price at Value Buds, and there was one other chain that I could find in Alberta with a similar price (Lake City Cannabis).
I thought the quality was near excellent, and I think you can see it in the photos. The profile isn’t screaming loud but it’s indicative of the observable visual quality.
Price and date calculations follow the pictures, and thanks for reading this post of Ogen Freshly Baked #26.
