I tried out some Limelight that’s made by Edison Cannabis Co. (Tilray) for this cannabis strain review, which is their version of Ultra Sour. It’s a pleasant cultivar full of lively terpenes that emit some enlightening aromas and flavors. Ultra Sour is a sativa-dominant strain that comes in with anywhere between 18% to 25% THC; this batch specifically came in with 20.10% and a negligible amount of CBD. There was a boost humidity pack in the container, which kept the moisture content excellent.
Terpene Profile: The dominant terpenes on this Ultra Sour are terpinolene, caryophyllene, humulene, pinene and limonene. Exact amounts aren’t available.
Lineage: Ultra Sour is a cross between East Coast Sour Diesel and MK Ultra, created by THSeeds in Amsterdam.
Packaging Details: This was packaged on 01/18/2020 and reviewed/tested on 03/24/2020, exactly 62 days later.
Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $34.70 at the SQDC in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. ($9.91/gram)
When it comes to visuals and bag appeal, this was average for me the texture of the weed was kind of disappointing. Many little pop-corn nugs full of leaves is not exactly my idea of proper looking weed. The dark and light shades of green covered in a shiny coat of healthy-looking trichomes made the appearance somewhat passable.
The fresh aromas that the terpenes on this Ultra Sour emit are so pleasant and pungent, just jumping out of the container into your nostrils. It was sweet, fruity, and sour with notes of apples and citrus. My favorite aspect of this whole Limelight strain review, it reminded me of a mix between San Rafael’s Tangerine Dream, Riff’s Sour Kush (two-tone ban) and Cove’s Revive.
The flavor on this Ultra Sour was slightly less aggressive and less sweet than its aroma, but still very enjoyable. On the inhale I got some piney flavors on the palate, with the sweet and lemony after tones on the exhale. Another aspect that I enjoyed was the smoothness when smoking, a similarity with Namaste’s Ultra Sour.
The effects were right up my alley with this Ultra Sour strain as they came in gradually and subtly, and I enjoyed smoking this during the day and at night time. It was just strong enough to put you at ease and just light enough where you can smoke some of this Limelight and still focus on getting your stuff done.
I’m a pretty big fan of the sour/citrusy strains, where terpinolene or limonene is the dominant terpene, but ONLY if it’s grown right. I think Edison did a proper job with this cultivar, and based on the consumer reviews that I’ve read, it seems that I’m not the only one. I would highly recommend this to both beginners and everyday consumers; I think both would enjoy it.
