Backpack Boyz Horchata Cannabis Cultivar (Strain) Review

Can never go wrong with the classics! Right?…. I’ve tried this strain a couple times and really liked it. Definitely one of backpacks best strains. I figured I’d try it again to see how it compares to the old batch and see how it compares to their new strains! Let’s get smoking!

Smell:8.5/10 sweet sweet sweet. This is as sweet as could be. Almost smells like honey. Rich creamy smell with slight berry undertones. Also has very strong spicy earthy smell to it. I’m not the biggest fan of stuff that has that spice smell to it but combined with the creamy sweet smell it’s pretty nice. Not my favorite kind of terp but definitely enjoyable.

Look:8.75/10 pretty much came as one big bud with a couple smalls. Very skinny long buds that aren’t super dense but have a nice structure to them. Lots and lots of purple with every shade of green you can think of. Long strangely orange hairs cover the rest of the bud. It’s covered in crystals especially on the outside. Covers your fingers in keif. Gives the bud a grayish white look from being so covered in diamonds. Very pretty with the light over it. Looked a lot different from the last batch I got but still very nice.

Smoke: 8.5/10 I wasn’t expecting this bud to taste like it did at all. I was expecting it to be super sweet. It had the creamy taste to it but the spicy earthy terps took over from there. Tasted like I poured some pepper in the blunt before I lit it up. Not my kind of terps. Very clean burn tho. Super white ash and a amazing high. Long lasting heavy high that’s perfect for night time. Will melt all ur problems away. And maybe ur face haha. If you need something to help with pain, relaxation, sleep this bud is perfect for you.

Overall: 8.5/10 this was some really nice bud grown really well but just wasn’t the type of terps I like. Has an amazing high and lots of medical benefits so I can for sure see why it’s so popular. Backpack boyz does such a good job with their original strains. To be honest if I could pick from any of their strains this probably if I could pick from any of their stains this probably wouldn’t be something I’d get again. They have so much fire that there’s no point of me trying something I didn’t like that much again. I know a lot of people love this strain so I’m definitely not saying it’s bad or I think everyone should pass on it. Just not what I like. Backpack boyz is still one of the best out there!
