Strain Review: White Truffle by Focus North Gardens

So I’ve had to turn down a couple batches of White Truffle from @focusnorthgardens because it was a bit out of my price range. I know it’s a $10 difference, but 50 for an eighth just seems like so much more than 40. Maybe I’m just broke. Probably a safe bet.

Focus North Gardens White Truffle Strain Review

white truffle by focus north gardens strain review by pdxstonemanThe strain has developed some hype, or at least I see it a lot in people’s stories and it looks real pretty. I gotta say, while the bag appeal was off the charts and the weed was overall pretty good, but for the price you’re paying I’d expect something really special and that’s just not what I got from this.

I’ve been trying to get a little more background information from the grower before I post a review, but for this one I wanted to just focus on the bud. The nose on it was nice and kushy, but not super loud. Some nice funky chocolate notes, little bit of garlic in there, too. If I had to criticize it at all, it could’ve had a stronger smell, but what’s there is decently complex and developed.

The high is a pretty standard indica high. Not super sleepy, but there’s a super strong couch lock and a good deal of munchies to it. It had some nice pain and anxiety relieving qualities as well. As much as I harp on terpene development and complexity, I’m primarily an effects smoker. As a medical patient, I can get past muted terps so long as the high has the qualities I’m looking for. I found the high to be the only lacking aspect to White Truffle. I like more euphoria to the high. Much as I like to clean out my fridge and pantry, I prefer to do it while giggling my ass off.

Overall I think I’d have a more positive opinion of this if it didn’t run a higher price than the rest of Focus North’s catalog. I buy a lot of my Focus North stuff from @oregrownindustries, but the price was just too high until Treehouse got it in. If it were the same price as their Tropicana, I’d be singing its praises, but it’s running 50+ an eighth for medical patients at some shops. For that price I’m expecting all the qualities to be at an 11. Unfortunately, my mind is unblown here. If you can find it on sale, or you’re a med patient and shop at Treehouse, you’ll be happy you grabbed some.
