Today we're gonna review a gLeaf Vape Cartridge from Maryland's medical marijuana program. The strain is called G Spot. No wonder I keep losing it! Hahahaha ok ok I'm good. I had forgot to check what it was called until I sat down to write, I've just been smoking it. It wasn't my intent to be salacious.
(Psst. You can skip to the Review or Verdict if you want)
PLEASE BE ADVISED: Recent news reports suggest there is a risk of severe lung damage associated with vaping. State health authorities are investigating. VAPE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Who is gLeaf?
gLeaf, short for GreenLeaf, is a medical marijuana grower in Frederick, Maryland. Their dispensary, gLeaf Wellness Solutions, is also located there. gLeaf has a processing license, too, so they can make their own concentrates in-house. Their site lists another 25+ dispensaries that carry their brand but that's probably outdated with nearly 100 dispensaries open.
gLeaf's CEO is Philip Goldberg, a native of Montgomery County. The company got its start in Maryland but have since been awarded licenses in Virginia, Ohio, & Pennsylvania. They'll be running Area 4 in VA, which covers Richmond and the surrounding counties.
They got some press a while back about partnering with Flying Dog Brewery to make a cannabis-infused brewski called Hop Chronic IPA. I've just learned that the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission has put a hard stop on those plans, however. The artwork submitted for the bottle's label was deemed too appealing to minors. Instead of letting gLeaf submit a new design, word is MMCC has revoked their approval entirely.
That's harsh, man. I was looking forward to weed beer this summer.
gLeaf Vape Cartridge Hardware
The hardware is standard- black plastic tip, clear window. No brand mark, which we'd like to see since there's a bunch of fake cartridges running around the area.
I haven't experienced any issues with leakage over the past week. I dropped it on a wood floor once from a short height and I don't see any damage.
The gLeaf cartridge pulls very well. A few seconds will provide a full hit. You'd have to put in some serious effort to pull too much and cough.
gLeaf G Spot Vape Cart Flavor
gLeaf's cartridges are distillate-based. I usually find CO2 to deliver a smoother hit and more flavorful terpene profile. Distillate like this might require a reassessment. Super-duper smooth. It doesn't bother my throat and it doesn't taste like glycol or...well, anything, really.
That's fine. I'll take neutral & smooth over artificial candy flavors covering harsh, low-quality distillate any day. No complaints here.
gLeaf G Spot Vape Potency & Effects
You can achieve higher THC content with distillate than any other extraction method. This G Spot vape says it's 87.98% THC. That seems accurate based on my experience with it. Unlike some other vapes we reviewed recently that were labeled with nearly the same potency.
gLeaf's G Spot Distillate Cartridge is stronger than a potion-pumpimg Paladin. A lot of vapes on the market are rather average. They'll stave off the dragon, but lack the raw power to achieve a critical hit. This G Spot cartridge slays. Class S Hero all the way.
Ten pulls of the G Spot cart had me strongly medicated for hours. Dab-level potency right here. My mood soared like a mighty pterodactyl over the Pangean plains. I felt totally relaxed. My anxiety was washed away, yet my ability to think clearly was not, nor did I suffer fatigue. No munchies either!
I felt way too good to get any work done, though, so I melted into the couch and binged One Punch Man instead. A day off is good! No TV and No Beer make GT something something.
Half that dose yielded similar results, but not as overwhelming & didn't last as long, about 2.5-3 hours. A creeper, the gLeaf G Spot took about 10-15 minutes to really get going at the lower dose. It was still quite satisfying.
No question about it! gLeaf's G Spot vape gets top marks for a smooth hit, dab-level potency, and an effect profile I adore. They're also cheaper than many of their competitors! I found gLeaf vapes at Maggie's in Camden for $50 per half-gram cart. It's the same price at gLeaf's own dispensary. I'd like to see branding added to the hardware, but that's a very minor complaint.
Some of their vapes do have a stronger flavor, but I don't mind the neutral flavor at all. I tried a gLeaf that tasted like Fruit Stripe gum a while back. It was a perfect balance of flavor, not overwhelming on the palate but clearly, deliciously present.
gLeaf might just be the best vape available in Maryland right now. We've got a few more to try before we go handing out crowns, but they're a strong contender thus far. Love to see a local marijuana brand thriving!
