Let me start by saying that, for me, this one is definitely up there when it comes to strain names! For this Wappa strain review, I tried out some bud made by Namaste; it’s an Indica-dominant with 18% THC and an inconsiderable amount of CBD.
It was developed by Dutch cannabis pioneers Paradise Seeds back in 2006. The dominant terpene in Wappa is myrcene. The secondary and tertiary terpenes are caryophyllene and linalool, which are all associated with giving off relaxing, stress-relieving effects in different ways.
Packaging Details: This was packaged on 12/09/19; it was purchased and reviewed on 01/08/20, 30 days later.
Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $24.60 at the SQDC in Montreal, QC. ($7.02/Gram)
This was actually my first Namaste product that I’ve tried so far, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised from the get-go, right from the way that the bud looks. The colors are mind-blowing; the nugs are lime green and covered in white crystals with many amber hairs in between.
Although it didn’t come with a humidity pouch, the bud was still very fresh and pretty dense. Most of the nugs in a 3.5g container were of very medium size, and as you can see in the pics, very photogenic!
When I opened up a new, sealed container, the first thing I noticed in the aroma is its freshness. It doesn’t happen with every strain out there; the bud smelled as fresh as it looked and felt.
There was a very herbal and somewhat spicy smell to this weed, with some sweet and fruity notes, similar to Viper Cookies. All in all, this Wappa strain had a delightful scent.
I found that this weed tasted woody and herbal when first inhaling it, with sweet and spicy after-notes left on the palate on the exhale, and once again, it all felt very fresh.
Overall I enjoyed it; it’s some pretty decent-tasting bud. The smoke didn’t feel aggressive at all; very smooth.
This Wappa (did I already talk about how much I like this strain’s name and how much I like saying it?) strain packs a punch, that’s for sure, and it’s not the most “functional” high, but it’s still very uplifting and euphoric in a way.
As in, you’re kinda glued to the couch and feel very relaxed without wanting to do much, but you can still have a great conversation. It got me very sleepy at the end of it; after about an hour and a half or so, it completely knocked me out. The high is pretty strong on this one.
It was interesting to research the Wappa strain itself and its origins because I never actually heard of it before. Paradise seeds won Canada’s Cannabis Champs Cup in 2014 with this cultivar derived from a sweetly-scented variety of Skunk.
I would recommend this weed to everyday smokers and beginners; however, beginners beware, this isn’t really a soft type of high; nonetheless, enjoyable. And if you’re smoking this in the evening, which I would, there’s a big chance it’ll put you to sleep, an excellent sleep.
This was my first, but I’m definitely excited to try more Namaste products.
