Hello everyone! Hope this review finds you well.
Glueball is one of VidaCann’s “original” strains that has been around almost since they first opened. It is a “cousin” strain to another longtime popular strain from VidaCann: Duct Tape (both share the Original Glue AKA GG4 parent strain.)
It seems that this is a fairly “hit or miss” strain from VidaCann. I’ve seen mixed reviews across social media – some very positive, some “meh”, and some very negative.
Price at time of review: $50/eighth (Tier 1)
Cannabinoids and Terpenes
This eighth of Glueball appears to have been grown pretty well. The trichomes have a slightly gold/amber hue, which indicates that the plant wasn’t rushed – at least not too much. Based on the length and overall appearance of the trichomes compared to other flower I’ve seen, I speculate that this plant could have gone a little longer before harvest.
My main gripe with this eighth is that it was bone dry, to the point that all the life and terpenes seem to have been sucked out of it. Even 2 weeks with an Integra boost pack only moderately revived this bud.
However, after a full 4 to 5 weeks with an Integra pack (or practically another curing cycle), the buds seemed to be much more dense, and even sticky. Unfortunately, the fact that it took that much to effort to revive the buds results in a lower score that what this eighth would otherwise have gotten in this category.
Appearance/Cure Rating: 5.50/10.00
I’m not sure if it was a result of the dryness of this flower when I got it, but this eighth of Glueball had almost no smell at first. (Or as many patients on social media love to say, “it smelled like hay.”)
A couple of weeks with the Integra pack did help to give me an idea of what this strain smells like.
In the jar, Glueball has a very sweet, earthy, herbal tea-like smell. It reminds me a bit of Fluent’s old Lyra (Sweet Kush) strain, if you’ve ever tried it.
After time with the Integra pack, I am able to detect a faint smell of hash and maybe a slight hint of fuel, as one would expect with the GG4 lineage of this strain.
The taste when smoked is almost nonexistent as well; if anything, I could faintly detect sweet pine and earth on the exhale.
Unfortunately, I was not impressed here.
Smell/Taste Rating: 3.50/10.00
For me, Glueball has slightly sativa-dominant hybrid effects that are overall fairly mellow. If you’ve ever tried VidaCann’s Duct Tape strain, I think of Glueball as “diet Duct Tape”.
The initial effects are a mild cerebral invigoration, but nothing that feels psychedelic or mind-shifting for me.
As time goes on and the effects progress, a mellow, all-encompassing light relaxation takes over. This is by no means anything heavy or sedating, but just a general well-being with perhaps a slight hint of euphoria.
Glueball is a strain that can be used at almost any time of the day, due to its mellow nature.
Possibly good for treating:
- Headaches or other minor body aches
- Relief of mild nausea or similar gastrointestinal symptoms
- Relief of mild anxiety
- General relaxation
I’m definitely no medical doctor, so please take the preceding conditions only as my own personal observations from using this strain and having experience with a multitude of different cannabis strains. Everybody is different, and every body reacts differently to various medications.
Effects Rating: 5.00/10.00
Overall Rating: 4.66/10.00
Overall, I would best describe Glueball as an “unremarkable” hybrid strain from VidaCann.
While Glueball is one of the weaker strains I’ve tried lately, I am impressed with the newer strains VidaCann has been releasing this year, including: Gelato 33, MAC 1, Super Lemon Haze, and Margalope. I look forward to seeing what else VidaCann has in store this year!
