Tsunami Strain Review (Hexo)
4.5 (2)

Tsunami Strain Review Info Block

I tried out some  Tsunami  made by  Hexo  for this review; it’s definitely a strong strain. It’s an  Indica-dominant  cultivar with  19.7% THC  and an inconsiderable amount of CBD. Tsunami is actually a  variant of Northern Lights, probably one of the most popular strains of all time. When it comes to lineage, Northern Lights is a descendant of Afghani and Thai landrace strains, and it’s known for it’s fast-flowering qualities, and it’s resilience during growth. I found that it smelled, tasted, and looked great. It definitely had some bag appeal; however, the high was a little too heavy for me personally. You can find a more detailed breakdown below.

Terpenes: Pinene, nerolidol, cymene, linalol, limonene

Packaging Details: This was packaged on 10/15/19, it was purchased and reviewed on 12/25/2020, exactly 71 days total after being packaged. Lot# AAA-112600

Pricing Details: This 3.5 gram container was purchased for $30.30 CAD at the SQDC in Montreal, QC. ($8.66/G)

Appearance: 2/5

Most of the buds that I got in the 3.5 gram container actually pretty decently sized, not too many little nugs. They were all of a light green color with some light orange pistils and a whole lot of white trichomes, which make the nugs look beautiful under LED lights. Once again, though, and I know it may seem repetitive but the way the buds feel is part of the look, THE DRYNESS. It’s such a simple fix, yet it keeps happening over and over again, so for me, it knocks the score down a lot. This came in at under 45% RH in the container; that kind of humidity content makes the weed dryer than it should be, especially after being packaged for a few months.

Aroma: 3/5

A powerful and pungent aroma came out of the container when I removed the seal; I didn’t even need to put my nose directly inside it. It was a refreshing herbal type of smell; the myrcene really stands out as there were some subtle sweet scents floating around. As I bid up the weed, the smell got way stronger and very present all over my living room, actually.

Flavor: 3/5

This was a great tasting cultivar; just like the smell, there was a refreshing taste to it. Very herbal and earthy with a touch of citrus in it. The smoke was pretty smooth, with minimal coughing involved, and the aftertaste was pleasant as the citrus notes stayed on the palate on the exhale. I found that the taste and the smell were above average in this one, although it’s mostly just herbal and earthy, it’s enjoyable and present.

Effects: 2.5/5

This is one of those strains that I found slightly too heavy when it comes to the high. What I mean by that is that I couldn’t actually do anything. I would not suggest this to a beginner; the THC percentage doesn’t do this justice. I felt very lethargic and completely glued to the couch; I actually passed out within about 30 minutes, woke up, ate ice cream, and went right back to bed. Don’t get me wrong; I completely understand that some people love this high, and as you know, the actual score is subjective, so for me, this is a little too much. Basically, you need to want to be in this state to enjoy this high.

Overall: 2.5/5

In conclusion, I would not suggest this to a person that hasn’t smoked much before. I believe it will bring in some anxiety and paranoia; it’s powerful. If you like what I call the “couch potato” high, then you may enjoy this. If you want to be functional, I don’t believe this Northern Light variant is for you. I was as functional as a guy with a man cold, as someone with a hangover, you get the point. Don’t get it twisted, though; this is an ok strain that has won a whole lot of awards in the past that will knock you on your ass! Based on consumer reviews, many people have used this for insomnia because it’s definitely a flower that will help you go straight to sleep. Please leave your reviews below!
