For this cannabis strain review, I tried out some…wait for it….some “La Cerise sur le Fun Day” made by a new Quebec cannabis brand called Fleurs De Lise. The actual translation is “The Cherry on the Funday”, there’s a lot going on over here with this name.
Now look, I understand the point; you’re marketing this towards the French crowd and all, but I believe this is going a bit overboard (This was grown by Delshen Therapeutics).
The actual strain is Sage n’ Sour, and I’m pretty sure that a non-English speaking francophone cannabis consumer would understand what Sage n’ Sour is, but again, what the hell do I know? I know this starts a little negatively, but the actual weed was excellent, so there’s that.
It’s a Sativa-dominant cultivar that came with 25% THC and an inconsiderable amount of CBD (the range is 20% to 26%). Below I break down every aspect of this flower in detail.
- Lineage: Sage x Sour Diesel
- Type: Sativa-dominant
- Potency: 20-26% THC
- Terpene Profile: Terpinolene, caryophyllene, limonene, ocimene, and myrcene
- Packaging Details: Packaged on 10/07/2020 and tested/reviewed on 10/25/2020, exactly 18 days later. Lot# SNS70A
- Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $26.90 at the SQDC in Montreal, Quebec, Canada ($7.69/gram).
Upon opening the bag (the cute, very bright pink bag, might I add), I noticed how bright the weed was; the buds were of a bright olive green color, and the pistils were almost neon orange; they were messy and all over the place!
Although it didn’t feel too dry, after putting this in a mason jar for 24 hours, the RH% was only at 45%, that’s barely passable, but it’s acceptable. I let the Boveda pack do the work to bring it back to 58%. There are some ups and downs when it comes to the visuals; the trichomes were present and very intact (you can see them in the micro pic below).
There were a total of 5 medium nugs there in the container, which is quite pleasant as opposed to getting a container full of little popcorn buds.
There may be some bias here, but the aroma that comes out of this bad boy is on my “favorites” list; the bud itself gave off some “Jack Haze” vibes when it comes to the smell. That mix of citrus, pine, pear, and cleaning products is very refreshing and unexpected.
There is some more earthiness and even some diesel notes that come out once the weed is milled. Another thing to note, and this did happen with my Jack Haze as well when the mason jar is empty, it still smells exactly like the weed itself after a few weeks, as if there are still buds just chilling in there.
There’s always something comforting about the terpinolene/limonene mix, and it’s not any different in this case.
The flavor was more muted than the aroma, and I got more earthiness and a slight touch of diesel. There were strong notes of spice and pepper on the exhale; you can tell that the terpene profile is quite complex. It seems that on combustion, the caryophyllene stood out.
This was a smooth experience, with nice smoke clouds and not much coughing or throat itching, which is always a plus.
Let’s get into my favorite aspect of this entire Sage n’ Sour review; if this were a Sundae, the effects would be the Cerise on top of it (see what I did there? Sorry, I just had to). You get instantaneous uplifting vibes after a few puffs; it’s a really cozy type of feeling that goes through your body.
It’s strong but not too aggressive, don’t get me wrong, I got really high off this weed. The beautiful thing was that there was absolutely no anxiety/paranoia, just a really fun vibe overall. I would have given this a perfect score if the buzz lasted a little longer.
Oh well, I guess I’m picky with my scores.
Overall, this new “Fleurs de Lise” brand did an outstanding job with this Sage n’ Sour strain, and I would recommend this to both beginners and everyday users.
Let’s not forget there’s good dollar value here, too, at $7.69/gram which is on the cheaper side (for comparison, the City Lights Strain costs $9.60/gram and provides just average quality). I’ll be looking out for more of their products in the future.
