I tried out some Tsunami made by Hexo for this review, it’s definitely a strong strain. It’s an indica dominant strain with about 19.7% THC and 0.06% CBD, and it’s main terpene is myrcene. Tsunami is actually a variant of Northern Lights, which is probably one of the most popular strains of all time. When it comes to lineage, Northern Lights is a descendant 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, definitely had some bag appeal, however the high was a little too heavy for me personally, . You can find a more detailed breakdown below.
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.
Pricing Details: This 3.5 gram container was purchased for $30.30 CAD at the SQDC in Montreal, QC. ($8.66/G)
Most of the buds that I got in the 3.5 gram container that I purchased were actually pretty decent, 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 little.
There was a great aroma that came out of the bottle when I removed the seal, I didn’t even put my nose directly inside it. There was a very refreshing herbal type of smell when I took a big whiff, the myrcene really stands out as there is some subtle sweet aftertones. As I bid up the weed, the smell got way stronger and very present all over my living room actually.
This was a great tasting strain, 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 very smooth, and the aftertaste was just as good. You can see that most of this Tsunami strain review has been positive, and I do think that Hexo did an excellent job overall. I found that the taste and the smell really stand out in this one, although it’s mostly just herbal and earthy, it’s very pleasant.
This is one of those strains that I found a little bit 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 does not lie on this one. 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 type of 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 type of high.
Final Score 3.9/5
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 very strong. For regular smokers, if you like, what I call, the “couch potato” high, you may enjoy this. If you want to be functional, I don’t believe this is a good strain for that. 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 a very solid 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. Maybe this strain deserves a better score, I will smoke this again to add in the consistency aspect. Please leave your reviews below!
