For this review, I tried out some Cuban Linx produced by Cannara Biotech under the Tribal brand. Their Gelato Mint has been amazing and I’ve already tried 3 different batches of that, so naturally, I was excited to try this out.
Right off the bat, this Sativa-dominant hybrid cultivar came with 24.8% THC and 4.9% of terpenes so the numbers are up there. CBD was at 0.1% which is pretty much insignificant. Below is a more in-depth breakdown.
- Lineage: TK Skunk x Tigerian
- Type: Sativa-dominant
- Potency: 24.8% THC, 4.9% terpenes, 0.1% CBD
- Terpene Profile: Terpinolene, Ocimene, Caryophyllene, Myrcene
- Packaging Details: Harvested on 04/06/21, packaged on 05/02/21, lot 01647A1
- Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $24.20 at the SQDC in Montreal. ($6.91/g)
Let’s start with the packaging, I think that Cannara Biotech has nailed this part with all of its products. The thin tuna-style can is of a way better size at 3.5 grams than the regular containers that we’re used to seeing. Since there aren’t many popcorn-sized nugs with Tribal products, the weed doesn’t move around much during transportation—it’s nice and snug in there and I even had to unstick nugs from one another upon opening it up.
The buds on this Cuban Linx are of a light green color with a few dark green leaves around, and dark orange pistils intertwined. Most of the nugs were large with a couple of small ones hanging around. My favorite part was the sheet of sticky trichomes covering it all.
I love to see little shiny spots on buds before even bringing out the microscope. Oh, and the moisture content? Almost perfect at 54% RH with no humidity pouch.
I’ve been enjoying the gassy/meaty/skunky strains lately; however, my preference is still and probably will always be the sweet/fruity-smelling cultivars. This one falls in the latter category.
Now, 4.9% of terpenes is a LOT, and you can smell it as soon as you crack open that tuna-style container (which is very satisfying btw).
It smells like a fresh batch of sweet lemonade, accented by notes of green apple and diesel.
I absolutely love the aroma of Terpinolene-dominant cultivars (when grown properly, of course) and this one is no exception. The smell intensifies even more once the weed is bid up.
Very similar to the aroma, the terpene profile on this Cuban Linx emitted some real lemonade-esque flavors that hung around on the palate, as well as some notes of diesel lingered as well on the exhale.
All of the joints I rolled with this flower burnt perfectly and the smoke was as smooth as can be.
This is the perfect cultivar if you want to get stuff done while still feeling the euphoric effects.
If you’ve read my reviews, you’ll know this is right up my alley. The combination of cannabinoids and terpenes on this bad boy provides an excellent high that hits both body and mind pretty quickly, just not the “couch-glue” type.
Want some extra motivation to get something important done? Smoke some of this Cuban Linx.
I would recommend this strain to both beginners and experienced users. It’s strong enough for the experienced crowd and smooth enough for beginners. The aroma and flavor on this will make you feel like you’re drinking lemonade on a sunny day—another solid product from the Cannara team.
Let’s not forget that we’re paying less than $7/gram for some real quality flower with these Tribal products (take note LPs, it is actually possible!). If you’ve had some of this Cuban Linx strain before, let me know what you thought of it in the comments below.
- Mandarin Cookies: This strain is similar to Cuban Linx in terms of its effects, providing an excellent high that hits both body and mind quickly, but without the “couch-glue” type feeling. However, Mandarin Cookies has a different flavor and aroma profile.
- Gorilla Glue #4: This strain is a cheaper alternative to Cuban Linx and has a heavy pine aroma, smooth smoke, and relaxing effects. It is also a hybrid strain like Cuban Linx but with a different lineage and terpene profile.
