Houseplant Indica Strain Review

houseplant strain review info block

For this cannabis strain review, I tried out some Indica that’s made by Houseplant, which is actually Seth Rogan’s company. Given the name, it’s obviously an indica dominant strain with a fairly high THC percentage, it can get up to 25%, this specific batch is at 21% with 0.1% CBD. Although I was not impressed at first, things changed after the rehydration process.  

For the terpene profile, the dominant one is linalool that comes in at 34%, followed by caryophyllene (25%), myrcene (18%), limonene (15%) and humulene (8%). 

When it comes to lineage, unfortunately I was not able to find any information whatsoever. 

Packaging Details: This was packaged on 09/18/2019 and tested/reviewed on 03/25/2020, exactly 189 days after being packaged.

Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $43.90 at the SQDC in Montreal, Quebec, Canada ($12.54/gram).

Appearance 2/5

The main reason for the low score here is because of the dryness. I was actually surprised because I usually take a nice big whiff before I fully take a look at the bud, so I knew right away the terpenes were very alive. However, the 28% humidity content was quite shameful, it was powder dry, I had to carefully insert everything in a container with the Boveda packs to make sure the nugs don’t fall apart on me. The colors on this bad boy though, really pleasant to look at as you can see in the pictures, a light green taint with some navy and purple spots, mixed in with a bunch of amber trichomes and amber pistils.

Aroma 5/5 

As I mentioned before, the terps were well and alive in this batch, so even though the weed was dry as hell, the aromas were very pleasant, especially after using a Boveda humidity pack to rehydrate the buds to 62%. Refreshing scents of rainforest with floral, almost rose-like after tones came out of the jar, the aroma on this bad boy was actually very unique and it makes complete sense since linalool is rarely the dominant terpene in a strain.

Flavor 4/5

The flavors on this bud are also unique, just like the aroma, however they’re a little less intense, a little more subtle. There were also some earthy/woody notes on the exhale. The 24 hour rehydration process made it so that the buds became super fresh, and it was evident when smoking this, the slow burning joints made this experience quite enjoyable. 

Effect 4/5

The cannabinoids on this strain give you euphoric effects, and although it’s an indica, I felt like it was cerebral and bodily at the same time. I also found that it wasn’t an overly aggressive buzz, and to me that’s a good thing. Personally, I wouldn’t use this too much during the day because to me, it’s not that type of weed, but I smoked this by myself and with a few friends and I enjoyed the effects the same both times.

Overall 3.8/5

This whole experience was very interesting, a little bit like a roller coaster ride, because when i first got this and opened up the seal on the container and took a whiff, I told myself this is going to be awesome. Then I touched the powder dry buds, and right away thought to myself this will actually be a complete disappointment. After the rehydration process, the terpenes came out alive and overall, this strain turned out to be pretty good. I would recommend this one to both beginners and every day users, just make sure you don’t completely get put off if you receive a dry batch, rehydrate it first. Also, beginners beware, this weed is still pretty strong, I just think it’s a pretty strong buzz minus the anxiety/paranoia effects. If you’ve tried this out before, let me know what you think in the comments below!
