The search for the perfect marijuana has taken the Gentleman to the furthest reaches of the globe. The expedition has been perilous and not without tragedy. Our yaksman was lost to a crevasse while traversing the Himalayas; the first mate, to a pack of caimans on the banks of the Amazon. I, myself, have spent the last month bedridden in the grip of delirium, on account of licking all the brightly colored frogs. Well if you're not supposed to lick them, then they shouldn't look like candy, should they? Stands to reason.
What’s on the Joint Delivery Menu?
At the top of the Joint Delivery menu you’ll find Daily Deals, most of which are flower gifts and vary in quantity (i.e., weight). Below that are flower gifts ranging from $50-$60. When I placed my order, Joint Delivery had nine strains of flower gifts to select from, plus those offered on the Daily Deals menu.
Below that, you’ll find Joint Delivery’s selection of cartridges and extract gifts, separate gummies and edibles menus. Apart from these two menus, you’ll find Joint Delivery’s much-talked-about selection of Trailblazer Edibles, with brownies, cookies and chocolate bars. Heading down the menu, you’ll find cool hoodies on the merch page, plus a small selection of topicals, and smoking gear like papers and Clipper lighters.
Reviewed: Sunset Sherbert
Joint Delivery’s Sunset Sherbert has a tangy citrus aroma, with sweeter notes of pineapple and a faint skunkiness to it. I was slightly frustrated that the flashy California mylar bags were hard to open, but I was pleased I had my multitool like the dork that I am to get into the goods.
The eighth consisted of five fat right nugs that were incredibly dense. Their color was incredible: a soft green with spots of darker green, tiny orange hairs, and the nugs were completely coated in trichomes. They had also been beautifully trimmed; each shapely, stout nugget had a perfect little handle-stem at its base and a clean manicure.
Sunset Sherbert had a nice tackiness to it when breaking it down by hand or grinding it, and left my fingers sticky and resinous. Given the fruity aroma, I was a bit caught off guard by the overwhelmingly floral taste of this strain when smoked. Rebelling against the loud fruitiness of its aroma, the soft tastes of lavender prepare you for the chilled-out high to come. Sunset Sherbert has a pretty smooth smoke, and I only felt the need to cough a few times throughout my extensive session.
My only real criticism of Joint Delivery’s Sunset Sherbet was that I found a tiny, immature white seed in the third nug I broke up — not enough to cause any concern, but a knock against nonetheless.
In terms of effect, this is a fairly calming hybrid, and it brought me down from that third cup of coffee I didn’t need at 4 p.m. It also provides some serious body relaxation effects. It'll have you kicking your feet up at the end of the day (in a hammock, ideally, if you have one.)
Reviewed: Black Hat OG
Black Hat OG is a cross of Blackberry OG and Peanut Butter Breath.
Let’s talk bag appeal. Black Hat OG flowers are a light olive with clusters of amber hairs jutting out from a thick coat of large, well-developed trichomes. The manicure is perfect, the extraneous stems and sugar leaf all neatly snipped away. As to its structure, I’ve been through several samples and found nothing but plump, ample buds sporting beautiful, natural curves. Forget bag appeal, these flowers have sex appeal. I want to buy it Thai food and rub its butt, then get it all… hot. Ahem. Where was I?
You’ll find Black Hat OG flowers to be exceptionally fresh. A playful nose of eucalyptus and lemons leaps out of the bag and straight up your nose-holes. Exhibiting exemplary moisture levels, the stem snaps satisfactorily when you press it with you finger (transferring some of those pretty trichomes in the process), then springs right back into shape. Similarly, it displays ideal density. The buds are tight but remain easy to work with by hand and soft to the touch when ground, though not particularly fine. The smoke is clean and smooth, but thick enough to cause the occasional cough if you get a little too ambitious.
As for effects, Black Hat OG leans heavily indica in my trials. I’m good after half a joint, feeling relaxed, open to the journey, man. Ten minutes later, I get very tired. It's not heavy on my head, as I can still think clearly, but the physical exhaustion from staying up til 2 a.m. playing Maneater finally catches up to me. Time to lay down on the couch, turn on some Ancient Aliens, maybe shut my eyes for just... a few… minutes. If you make it through that phase without sleeping, you can expect the munchies to arrive in about an hour, demanding Ding Dongs and Mountain Dew Livewire. You can smoke it in the morning with a stiff dose of caffeine, but later than that and it’ll be too heavy to shake off without a nap. More helpful later at night before bed, when this siren’s lullaby is more welcome.
In my estimation, Black Hat OG is a superb specimen of carefully cultivated cannabis. I’m downright proud to slap my name on these bags. This all turned out quite well, I think. Maybe we’ll do it again in the future. Check it out for yourself and you’ll see why GT is strutting around town like a BeeGee. These knees are the bees, baby, and that’s a promise.
