I tried out some Ethos Glue that’s made by Laurentian Organic out of the Laurentians in Quebec. This is an Indica-dominant strain that was developed by Ethos Genetics, a company that prides itself on “creating strain after strain of stable varieties that perform exactly as advertised”. This Ethos Glue strain is on the strong side of things when it comes to THC, however, this batch came in on the lower end with 20.3% THC and a meaningless amount of CBD (The THC ranges between 20% – 24%). After trying out their Tremblant Kush, I was expecting something good, and this LP did not disappoint! Below I break down every aspect of this gassy cultivar in detail.
Lineage: Black Fire x GG4 cross, developed by Ethos Genetics
Terpene Profile: Caryophyllene, myrcene, limonene
Packaging Details: Packaged on 10/18/2020 and tested/reviewed on 12/19/2020, exactly 62 days later. Lot ALO20D0003
Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $32.20 At the SQDC in Montreal, Quebec, Canada (9.20/gram).
I like the packaging that Laurentian Organic uses to pack their weed because it keeps all the buds stuck together; there isn’t much space for the flower to move around; hence the trichomes remain intact, the terps are smelly, and the weed doesn’t dry up so fast. Add in a boost humidity pack, and the moisture content stays at 59% RH for a while, which is exactly what we’re looking for. There is a spongy texture to the buds on this Ethos Glue; the nugs aren’t the densest. When it comes to sizing, there were a total of 8 buds, seven medium ones and a small one. Now, this is a big no-no for me; it was underweight at 3.4 grams. I’m not going to cause a hissy fit over 0.1 grams, especially when their Tremblant Kush and Pink Kush were overweight, but it does lose some points! The buds are of an olive green color with some leaves of a darker shade, you’ll also find a minimal amount of beige pistils and a heavy-duty sheet of trichomes that make everything look lighter, and although the nugs feel a little loose this is still some pretty looking weed, see below.
When opening up the freshly sealed Ethos Glue container, the first thing I noticed is how loud and aggressive the aroma was, the type of smell that would interrupt a conversation; the terps are absolutely obnoxious on this. It’s as if a pine tree rolled around in a puddle of diesel that’s mixed with juices from a citrusy fruit salad.
It’s surprising not to see Pinene in the dominant terps on this strain since there’s so much pineness in the aroma and the flavor. Diesel notes accented every puff as there was gas left on the palate on the exhale; it was all a little more muted than the aroma itself but still very enjoyable.
Like Laurentian Organic’s Tremblant Kush, the effects are both body and mind; they’re strong and instantaneous. After the initial “aggressive” high slows you down significantly, the feeling goes into euphoria territory, which balances out the entire experience. Once more, the whole experience lasted about 90 minutes (with the first 30 being the peak), and I felt quite lethargic afterward.
In my books, Laurentian Organic is two for two right now. They did a solid job with this Ethos Glue strain just as much as they did with their Tremblant Kush. This organic craft cannabis company is building a solid reputation for itself; however, we all know how easy it is to screw this reputation up, so I hope they keep up with this standard. If you’ve tried some Ethos Glue, let me know what you think of it in the comments below.
