Two Tone Ban Strain Review (Sour Kush)

two tone ban strain review (info block)

For this cannabis strain review, I tried out some  Two-Tone Ban made by  Riff  (Aphria’s recreational brand). The actual strain is supposed to be  Sour Kush; it’s a hybrid cultivar with dominance towards the  Sativa side.

When it comes to cannabinoid content, the  THC percentage fluctuates between 12% and 22%  (this batch specifically had  19.29% THC  and a negligible amount of CBD). 

For the terpene profile, the dominant terp here is myrcene, while the complete profile includes caryophyllene, limonene, pinene, and linalol.

When it comes to lineage, Sour Kush is a cross between sour Diesel and OG Kush, originally bred by DNA Genetics. 

Packaging Details: This was packaged on 11/09/2019 and reviewed/tested on 02/15/2020, exactly 98 days later.

Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $27.90 at the SQDC in Montreal, Quebec, Canada ($7.97).

Appearance: 3.5/5

When it comes to visuals, this Two-Tone Ban is very pleasant to look at; all the vibrant colors on this flower really complement each other. There is a mix of navy, light emerald green, and dark green mixed with some very bright light orange pistils.

The buds are also covered with dense, amber trichomes, and it all comes together like a little weed rainbow (as you can see, the sour kush effects have not worn off yet). No humidity pouch was present, but it didn’t really affect the humidity content; I could also squish some nugs without breaking apart.

Although there is little to complain about on the visual side of things, there were still some little pop-corn nugs hanging around, and I’m not a big fan of those!

Aroma: 4/5

This Two-Tone Ban review aspect gets a high score from me because it’s my favorite type of smell when it comes to cannabis flower.

Very reminiscent of  Tangerine Dream, there is a pungent, zesty, sour, and sweet orange scent, almost as if you just peeled an actual tangerine; it feels like the limonene is quite dominant. Interestingly enough, when the weed was bid up, some earthy and woody aromas started to come out.

Flavor: 2/5

This was actually very surprising; the flavor and the aroma were completely different. I found that there was actually no flavor, just a hint of something herbal; it was quite disappointing, especially after the way the weed smelled. The smoke itself was smooth enough, and the joint burned fine, but there’s definitely something missing here.

Effects: 3/5

This Sour Kush gave me the couch-glue effect, a strong cerebral and “lazy” buzz. Unlike Ice Cream Cake Strain, which boosted my creativity, I did not feel like doing anything productive whatsoever; it’s the type of weed that you smoke while watching a good show on Netflix, not the type to get creative or start doing some work, in my opinion.

By the way, the munchies were VERY present, and the package of chocolate chip cookies that I had did not last…Just saying.

Overall: 3/5

This Two Tone Ban was pretty good overall, although the flavor is off-putting. For those looking for better flavor, I will recommend trying Meat Breath. I would not recommend this to a total beginner because it would get them a little too high, past enjoyment into the paranoid territory.

This is some pretty good weed for everyday consumers if you enjoy being glued to your couch and not really doing too much.

THE VISUALS, THOUGH! It’s some weed that’s really pleasant to look at; I would compare this flower to a really good-looking model with a bad attitude….If you’ve tried some Two-Tone Ban, leave your own reviews in the comment section below!
