MÜV Flower Review: Sour Jack (Sativa)

Sour Jack is the offspring of two of my favorite classic sativa strains: Sour Diesel and Jack Herer. I love both of these strains for different reasons: Sour Diesel is like the espresso of cannabis, with nearly unmatched energizing effects. On the contrast, Jack Herer is known for its ability to induce focus, making it a good strain for ADD, ADHD, and other similar mental focus-related ailments.

I’ve seen patients rave about Sour Jack for well over a year now, adding to my curiosity about how these two sativas would be when combined. After what seemed like months of not getting this strain at my local dispensary, I finally managed to grab an eighth of the T3 (small buds).

So, how does Sour Jack stack up to its superstar parents?

Quick Facts:

Sour Jack (Sativa) 

Price at time of review: $32/eighth (T3)

Lineage: Sour Diesel x Jack Herer

Batch/Harvest Number: BU220620-6570SJ

Cannabinoids

THC: 15.55%

CBD: 0.05%

Total Cannabinoids: 15.60%

Terpenes

Unfortunately, MÜV doesn’t make their lab reports available, so I have no terpene percentages to provide for this strain. Whenever this information becomes available, I will update this section with the terpenes and their percentages.

Appearance/Cure

Glass jar is my own; it is a recycled VidaCann flower jar.

MÜV’s T3 flower is $32 per eighth vs. the $50 pricetag of their T1 flower, and the $40 for T2. Per their website:

Tier 1 ($50) and Tier 2 ($40) are selected based on potency, size, structure, terpene profiles and aroma. Tier 3 is based on size only.

https://altmedflorida.com/product/copy-copy-2/

This eighth of Sour Jack was fully comprised of small, “rat pellet” size buds. Not exactly the most appealing thing to see when opening the pack, but hey – I bought the lowest tier, right?

The buds were on the dry side, but still seemed to have plenty of crystals. The physical appearance of Sour Jack, from what I can tell, leans to that of its Sour Diesel parent. I always recognized Jack Herer for both its extremely light green color, and its abundant coverage of vibrant orange pistils. Sour Diesel, on the other hand, has that forest green color with a shade darker orange pistils. As you can see in the images above, Sour Jack fits the latter description more.

After seeing other MMTCs up their flower game in the past few months, MÜV seems to be retaining the same quality that it has had since I started shopping there – which is still good quality, but it would be nice to see them improve at the same rate as the market. Maybe I’m just not getting the right strains?

Appearance/Cure Rating: 6.00/10.00

Smell/Taste

Since both Sour Diesel and Jack Herer are pungent strains (albeit on different ends of the spectrum), I expected Sour Jack to possess an equally strong aroma, especially as some Reddit reviews indicated as much. Unfortunately, my eighth of Sour Jack did not have any sort of pungent aroma, but instead had a subtle scent that I had to focus on to find and describe.

Sour Diesel, in my experience, can vary from extremely pungent gas/diesel to a sort of loud citrus smell. I’ve tried it from both Trulieve (review here) and Fluent (review here); Trulieve’s Sour Diesel cut leans citrus (but still has notable diesel when ground up), and Fluent’s is heavily on the gas/diesel side.

Jack Herer, on the other hand, has always had a very sharp and pungent piney citrus aroma with a terpinolene-dominant terpene profile. Again, I’ve tried it from Trulieve (review here) and Fluent (review here); the smell was almost identical on both cuts.

So now that I’ve laid out the full spectrum of my experience with the smell and taste of the parent strains, where in that spectrum does Sour Jack fall?

Like with its physical appearance, I found Sour Jack to lean more toward its Sour Diesel parent in its smell – but fully on the citrus end of the spectrum; the gas/diesel terpenes were nowhere to be found in this eighth. The smell of Sour Jack when I ground it up, was actually sort of sweet, with citrus being the dominant smell, and an underlying earthiness in the background. I did not detect any terpinolene with my nose, but without a lab report, I can’t say if it is present or not. I can say that not much of the Jack Herer is present in the smell, unless some of the subtle citrus notes come from that parent.

The taste was much like the smell – smooth, subtle, and sweet citrus. Frankly, I expected to be more impressed by Sour Jack in this category, but maybe I got a weaker batch. I suppose I’ll revisit the strain if it’s available in T1 in the future; I don’t want to give up on a strain that has such good genetic potential just yet.

Smell/Taste Rating: 6.20/10.00

Effects/Medical Use

Sour Jack leaned toward its Sour Diesel parent in the preceding categories, but it manages to find itself more balanced in the effects.

As I said before, I consider Sour Diesel to be my “cannabis espresso” and Jack Herer to be my “cannabis Adderall”. Sour Jack is not a speedy or racy strain, but it is not focused either. I find it to be right between Sour Diesel and Jack Herer – more mellow and uplifting, good for the mood – not necessarily a strain for motivation, energy, or focus.

Though there is some of a “sativa” energy boost associated with this strain, it isn’t overwhelmingly present. I smoked my last bowl just before i started typing this review; it is late morning, and I would best describe my mood as content. I am not really “in the zone” like I like to be after medicating with a sativa strain, but I am not aloof or unfocused either. Sour Jack seems to be right in the middle of the sativa effects spectrum, representing a good blend of the more subtle effects from its two parent strains.

With all that being said, I’d recommend to think of Sour Jack as its own unique strain if you’re buying it for its effects. If you want energy, stick with the Diesel. If you want focus and motivation, stick with Jack Herer. If you want a relatively mellow sativa to ease through the day on a fluffy cloud of happiness, but with a very light dose of energy, get Sour Jack.

Possibly good for treating:

  • Depression and associated anxiety
  • Lack of appetite
  • Minor headaches
  • Relief of minor skeletal/muscular aches and pains
  • Good for general relaxation (in higher doses or later in the day)

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: 8.00/10.00

Overall Rating: 6.73/10.00

Overall, I would best describe Sour Jack as a “good, balanced” sativa strain from MÜV.

While I wasn’t floored with this strain as I expected it to be, it was good enough that I want to give it another chance. I will get a higher tier next time, as I feel that the negatives in my experience can all be attributed to buying the Tier 3 small buds. A strain like this needs to be experienced at its full potential. If I do try T1 and have a notably better experience, that will birth an entirely new section for this site – “Round 2 Reviews”. We will cross that bridge if and when we get to it!

MÜV Flower Review: Florida I95 (Hybrid)

MÜV has really impressed with me with most of their flower options that I’ve tried up to this point, and Florida I95 has been no exception. While I wasn’t able to find any information about this version of the I95 strain online, I assume that Florida I95 is MÜV’s in-house take on this strain.

Based on everything I’ve read about I95, Florida I95 seems to fit the description really closely – enough that I would say it can be thought of as a good substitute for patients looking for the I95 strain.

Quick Facts:

Florida I95 (Hybrid)

Price at time of review: $40/eighth (T2)

Lineage: Unknown, possibly related to I95

Batch/Harvest Number: BU190320-7328FLI

Cannabinoids

THC: 18.03%

CBD: 0.00%

Total Cannabinoids: 18.03%

Terpenes

Unfortunately, MÜV doesn’t make their lab reports available, so I have no terpene percentages to provide for this strain. Whenever this information becomes available, I will update this section with the terpenes and their percentages.

Appearance/Cure

Glass jar is my own – a recycled VidaCann flower jar.

MÜV’s T2 flower is $40 per eighth. Per their website:

Tier 1 ($50) and Tier 2 ($40) are selected based on potency, size, structure, terpene profiles and aroma. Tier 3 is based on size only.

https://altmedflorida.com/product/copy-copy-2/

Florida I95 is another strain I think is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, largely due to the very light green hues that are generously covered in dusty golden trichomes. Pistils are dark/burnt orange, almost getting into the brown color spectrum.

The moisture content/stickiness is very nice; the buds try to stay stuck together when broken apart – probably about the middle of the moisture spectrum. Not too dry, but not so sticky that it causes problems for my grinder: almost perfect.

The size of the buds was small-medium, but felt fair for the T2 price point. Trim is really good, and there was no shake, stems, or sugar leaves in this batch. That is always appreciated!

Appearance/Cure Rating: 8.60/10.00

Smell/Taste

Florida I95 has a very nice smell that falls into the “skunky, funky” family of dominant terpenes. However, this is not an obnoxiously strong funk as I found with MÜV’s Triangle Kush; instead, this is a sweeter, more citrusy skunk/funk smell. There also seems to be a hint of hash here as well.

When ground up, I find more of the citrus terpenes to be noticeable, but the overall smell is still very similar to the unground flower.

The taste is nice as well; both citrus and hashy notes are observable upon exhale. Overall, this is a strain that I would say has a notably good smell and taste – it will probably go down as one that I come back to in the future for this reason.

Smell/Taste Rating: 8.80/10.00

Effects/Medical Use

I find the effects of Florida I95 to be fairly well-balanced, though I would say they are still sativa-dominant. Unlike many strains in this class (where effects tend to be all or mostly cerebral at first, as body relaxation slowly fades in), Florida I95 seems to have both mind and body effects from the very beginning.

Cerebral stimulation and mild body relaxation both seem to come on fairly quickly, and actually stay pretty level throughout the duration of the effects. I say this is a sativa-dominant hybrid (in terms of effects, not plant structure) because ultimately it seems to be a strain that makes me want to move and/or be creative; it never really gets to a point of sedation.

Florida I95 is a versatile strain that I’d recommend for almost any time of the day, but patients may want a harder-hitting indica if they’re looking to treat insomnia. Florida I95 is just generally good cannabis that reminds me of some of my early experiences with the herb. Easy-going, but enough of a punch to make a person want to be active. I enjoy this one.

Possibly good for treating:

  • Depression and related anxiety 
  • Lack of motivation
  • Relief of minor aches and pains
  • General relaxation and euphoria
  • Relief of minor GI issues: IBS, etc.

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: 8.60/10.00

Overall Rating: 8.66/10.00

Overall, I would best describe Florida I95 as an “excellent, versatile” hybrid strain from MÜV.

Florida I95 is a generally good strain to have as a “middle of the road” option – it truly is balanced. For patients looking for a strain that doesn’t lean too heavily towards either side of the effects spectrum, this makes a great choice.

MÜV continues to impress me with the quality of their flower; of the 7 strains I’ve tried so far, I haven’t found a bad one yet. Let’s hope that pattern continues! (*Knocks on wood*)

Many more reviews are coming soon – especially as I find myself at home nearly 24/7 during this COVID-19 pandemic – so stay tuned!

MÜV Flower Review: Triangle Kush (Indica)

Triangle Kush is a strain that actually originated in Florida in the 1990s, and is very well-known amongst many OG Florida cannabis users because of this. Triangle Kush gets its name from the triangle that is formed when you connect the dots of the three “Florida cannabis capitals” – Tampa, Jacksonville, and Miami – on a map.

MÜV’s Triangle Kush is one of my favorite strains I’ve found in Florida to date. Though my formative years for my cannabis experience took place in a non-legal state (not Florida), this strain reminds me a lot of the first “dank” or “loud” cannabis that I tried in 2009 and 2010. The smell, taste, and effects are all top quality, and MÜV grew this strain to near perfection.

Quick Facts:

Triangle Kush (Indica)

Price at time of review: $40/eighth (T2)

Lineage: Descended from Florida OG Kush

Batch/Harvest Number: BU200220-9571TRK

Cannabinoids

THC: 25.16%

CBD: 0.08%

Total Cannabinoids: 25.24%

Terpenes

Unfortunately, MÜV doesn’t make their lab reports available, so I have no terpene percentages to provide for this strain. Whenever this information becomes available, I will update this section with the terpenes and their percentages.

Appearance/Cure

Glass jar is my own – a recycled VidaCann flower jar.

MÜV’s T2 flower is $40 per eighth. Per their website:

Tier 1 ($50) and Tier 2 ($40) are selected based on potency, size, structure, terpene profiles and aroma. Tier 3 is based on size only.

https://altmedflorida.com/product/copy-copy-2/

This eighth of Triangle Kush is one of the best growth batches of flower that I’ve found in Florida. These buds are so sticky that I actually tested them by pushing them up against the glass jar I keep them in, and then tossing it around and holding it upside down, etc. The flower stayed stuck to the jar the entire time.

This is also the most dense flower I’ve found in Florida; these buds literally make a “clink” sound similar to a rock when they’re dropped into a glass jar. Moisture content, cure, and trim are about as close to perfect as I’ve seen.

The strain itself appears to have visually appealing genetics, as the flower is a very light shade of green. (I know this is a subjective view, but I really appreciate bright green flowers as they seem to be more rare than medium and dark green strains.)

Fuzzy trichomes are easily visible, but the presentation of pistils on this flower is unique. I’m not sure if it’s due to the trim or the genetics of the strain, but where the pistils are normally longer and sometimes wispy on most strains, they are very short and compressed/cluttered in distribution on this Triangle Kush – almost in a way similar to the trichomes.

Anyway, this is a masterful grow, and most likely the best flower I’ve gotten for $40/eighth.

Appearance/Cure Rating: 9.50/10.00

Smell/Taste

Fuel. Gas. Dank. Fire.

Whichever adjective you reserve for pungent, gassy strains – it works for Triangle Kush. This is the type of strain that slaps you in the face with its aroma as soon as you open the jar. It will smell up your apartment or the area of your house its kept in if you leave the container open.

There’s different “levels” to gas strains though, so I will go more in depth. While the pungent gas and diesel terpenes are certainly the most dominant, there’s also a more complex secondary terpene profile. Those terpenes include a sour lemony musk, subtle pine, and a hint of sweetness.

I rarely continue to rave about a strain throughout the review like this as to avoid sounding sensationalist, but this eighth of Triangle Kush deserves the praise it’s getting. I love pungent, fuel strains. Everything about the smell of this strain reminds me of the first times I ever picked up cannabis that was better than the regular variety of “brick weed” that came in dimes and dubs – it’s just got that nostalgic fuel, gas smell that I can’t seem to put down.

Smell/Taste Rating: 9.40/10.00

Effects/Medical Use

Though labeled as an indica strain, I found Triangle Kush to be versatile and suitable to be used at just about any time of the day. I used it to ease into sleep last night, and I used it for a medicating session soon after waking up this morning; I smoked a little bit again before and while writing this review.

Triangle Kush is one of those strains that is “happy” above all else. The euphoria and calm it invokes are great. I think of it as removing a lot of the extra noise in my mind, and as something that helps me get to a state in which I am relaxed enough to be productive. Really, I feel that I am able to choose how the effects of Triangle Kush play out based on what I do. If I want to be productive, I start doing whatever it is I want to do. If I want to relax, I am able to do that as well. Triangle Kush seems to be a strain that allows me to control the experience of the effects more so than the effects dictating my experience – if that makes any sense to you.

There are cerebral aspects to Triangle Kush, but there is a noticeable relaxing quality as well. It can be a strain that makes you feel lazy if you don’t do anything, though; so – if you want to be productive while medicating with Triangle Kush, be sure you get up and moving before you’re too relaxed to want to move!

Again, these effects remind me a lot of some of the first “good” batches of cannabis I ever smoked. Hungry, happy, and sometimes sleepy. Great strain.

Possibly good for treating:

  • Depression and related anxiety 
  • ADD/ADHD or focus-related issues (in lower doses)
  • Lack of motivation (in lower doses)
  • Relief of minor aches and pains (in moderate to high doses)
  • General relaxation and euphoria
  • Relief of minor GI issues: IBS, etc.
  • Insomnia (in higher doses)
  • Lack of appetite

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: 9.40/10.00

Overall Rating: 9.43/10.00

Overall, I would best describe Triangle Kush as an “outstanding, exceptional” indica strain from MÜV. This may well be the best eighth of flower I’ve gotten from Florida’s medical cannabis industry.

I absolutely recommend grabbing an eighth of Triangle Kush if you can find it at your local MÜV. It really is one of those strains that smashes it in every single category. The medicinal versatility alone is worth it, but the amazing smell (and cure for this eighth) really made it stand above most all of the other strains I’ve gotten so far.

Many more reviews are coming soon – especially as I find myself at home more and more during this COVID-19 pandemic – so stay tuned!

MÜV Flower Review: Strawberry Cough (Hybrid)

Strawberry Cough is a well-known and sought after cannabis strain that has a bit of mystery behind its exact origin. The general idea behind the lineage is a Haze phenotype was bred with a strawberry strain; some versions of the story say that the other parent was an unknown indica strain that was grown in a strawberry field.

Regardless of the lineage, one thing is clear: MÜV’s phenotype is Strawberry cough is an entirely different strain that VidaCann’s phenotype (review here), which is labeled as a sativa strain.

MÜV has allegedly claimed that their version of Strawberry Cough is the Kyle Kushman phenotype, which has been widely critically acclaimed. I am waiting to verify this with their team, and will report back once I have received an answer.

Quick Facts:

Strawberry Cough (Hybrid) 

Price at time of review: $40/eighth (T2)

Lineage: Unknown; Clone-Only

Batch/Harvest Number: BU050320-7814SC

Cannabinoids

THC: 19.44%

CBD: 0.05%

Total Cannabinoids: 19.49%

Terpenes

Unfortunately, MÜV doesn’t make their lab reports available, so I have no terpene percentages to provide for this strain. Whenever this information becomes available, I will update this section with the terpenes and their percentages.

Appearance/Cure

Jar is my own; it is a recycled VidaCann flower jar.

MÜV’s T2 flower is $40 per eighth vs. the $50 pricetag of their T1 flower or the $32 for T3. Per their website:

Tier 1 ($50) and Tier 2 ($40) are selected based on potency, size, structure, terpene profiles and aroma. Tier 3 is based on size only.

https://altmedflorida.com/product/copy-copy-2/

This is a beautiful Strawberry Cough phenotype that expresses a large amount of purple shades throughout the buds. Fuzzy amber trichomes are numerous and easily visible with the contrasting shades of purple and green in the background. Pistils are slightly fewer in comparison to what I consider the average for all the strains I’ve tried, and are a vibrant burnt orange color.

The buds are medium density and very slightly on the dry side, but are still somewhat sticky when broken apart.

Very nicely grown batch of Strawberry Cough here – and a very nice phenotype, Kyle Kushman or otherwise.

Appearance/Cure Rating: 8.60/10.00

Smell/Taste

This cut of Strawberry Cough smells nearly identical to a Strawberry Creme Saver candy, for those of you who remember it. Strawberry and Cream are the dominant smells, with a faint earthy terpene in the background. This is a moderately loud flower that smells really nice, sweet, and floral, with the cream terpenes being some of the most pronounced I’ve found in Florida cannabis flower.

The taste is much like the smell – musky strawberry overtones with hints of earthy haze. Very good, and currently my favorite of the three “strawberry” flower strains I’ve tried so far. (The other two are Vidacann’s Strawberry Cough and Trulieve’s Strawberry Switchblade.)

Smell/Taste Rating: 8.80/10.00

Effects/Medical Use

As I mentioned before, MÜV lists their cut of Strawberry Cough as a hybrid strain – a contrast from VidaCann’s sativa cut of the strain.

This seems to reflect in the effects as well. MÜV’s Strawberry Cough feels like a more balanced hybrid strain, if slightly sativa-dominant. The typical sativa-esque cerebral invigoration is immediately noticeable, but gentle. This strain is a bit of a creeper, and the mind/euphoric effects seem to reach full intensity about 20-25 min after the first hit.

After the peak of cerebral effects, the indica-like body relaxation begins to set in, but not too heavily. This is a functional strain that I’ve used to wake-and-bake, but it is versatile, as I’ve also used it to wind down after a long day at work. It is notable that this strain does a good job of helping me stay productive and not as anxious from the COVID-19 pandemic that is consuming so much of our lives at this time. Overall, the effects are pretty balanced, and could be used at almost any time of the day – except right before bed, perhaps. This strain has enough of a sativa edge that I would not want to use it before trying to ease my mind off to sleep.

Possibly good for treating:

  • Anxiety 
  • Depression
  • General enjoyment of life/activities
  • Minor to moderate aches and pains
  • Minor to moderate nausea/gastrointestinal issues
  • 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: 8.20/10.00

Overall Rating: 8.52/10.00

Overall, I would best describe Strawberry Cough as an “excellent” hybrid strain from MÜV.

At this point, I would have to say that this is my favorite cut of Strawberry Cough currently available in Florida. It truly delivers good results in all the categories I’m looking for. I recommend getting the T2 if you have a chance – it’s the best of both worlds in terms of price and overall quality.

Stay tuned for many more new Florida cannabis reviews coming soon and throughout 2020 – and beyond!

MÜV Flower Review: Mandarin Dreams (Indica)

Mandarin Dreams is an indica (some say hybrid) strain that I’ve actually tried first at Trulieve (review here.)

I enjoyed this strain before, and was interested to see how it would compare at another dispensary. Overall, MÜV’s version of Mandarin Dreams is similar to Trulieve’s, but there are some notable differences.

Quick Facts:

Mandarin Dreams (Indica)

Price at time of review: $40/eighth (T2)

Lineage: Storm Trooper OG x Mandarin Sunset

Batch/Harvest Number: BU040220-8583MD

Cannabinoids

THC: 19.37%

CBD: 0.04%

Total Cannabinoids: 19.41%

Terpenes

Unfortunately, MÜV doesn’t make their lab reports available, so I have no terpene percentages to provide for this strain. Whenever this information becomes available, I will update this section with the terpenes and their percentages.

Appearance/Cure

MÜV’s T2 flower is $40 per eighth. Per their website:

Tier 1 ($50) and Tier 2 ($40) are selected based on potency, size, structure, terpene profiles and aroma. Tier 3 is based on size only.

https://altmedflorida.com/product/copy-copy-2/

This T2 Mandarin Dreams is in line with the same quality as the T2 Clementine I tried, with regard to nug size, trim, etc.

Compared to Trulieve’s Mandarin Dreams that I tried, the overall size and appearance of the nugs is similar – even the way the pistils cover the flower is similar. The one difference in appearance is that this batch from MÜV is lighter green in color – more of a uniform lime green. The flower is very slightly dry, but otherwise cured and prepared very well.

Based on my experience with this eighth, MÜV’s T2 is well grown and worth the $40.

Appearance/Cure Rating: 8.20/10.00

Smell/Taste

The biggest difference that I noticed between Trulieve vs. MÜV’s Mandarin Dreams flower, is the smell and taste.

MÜV’s Mandarin Dreams smells like orange cream in the jar, with a faint hint of the cheese-like terpene that dominates Chemhünd‘s terpene profile.

When broken down or ground up, this cut of Mandarin Dreams emits a very nice diesel smell, coupled with sweet orange citrus. I particularly enjoy the smell of the broken-down flower.

When smoked, I taste orange spice with an earthy undertone. Not quite as enjoyable as the smell of the flower, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Overall, this is a very nice smelling and tasting cut of Mandarin Dreams, and I think I may slightly prefer it to Trulieve’s version in this category.

Smell/Taste Rating: 8.40/10.00

Effects/Medical Use

MÜV’s cut of Mandarin Dreams seems to feel more like an indica than Trulieve’s, from my experience – though the two are still very similar in feeling.

At first, I notice uplifting and cerebral-centric effects, but a warm-body relaxation soon comes on within the first 20 minutes after medicating.

MÜV’s Mandarin Dreams doesn’t really make me giggly like Trulieve’s did; in fact, MÜV’s version feels overall more body-centric in its effects – especially as time passes.

Though it is a relaxing strain, I do not find this cut of Mandarin Dreams to be sedative, and still find it to be on the “lighter” spectrum of indica effects – maybe 65/35% indica dominant. Of particular note, this strain was a really good one for when I was feeling more anxious; if anything, it helped my anxiety through its relaxing properties.

(For reference, my memory of Trulieve’s Mandarin Dreams flower seems like it was about 55/45% indica dominant – much closer to a balanced hybrid.)

Possibly good for treating:

  • Anxiety 
  • Moderate aches and pains
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Moderate nausea/gastrointestinal issues
  • General Relaxation 
  • Depression

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: 8.00/10.00

Overall Rating: 8.20/10.00

Overall, I would best describe Mandarin Dreams as a “very good” indica strain from MÜV.

This is just the beginning of many, many MÜV product reviews to come. Now that they’ve finally come to my part of Florida, I have a lot of catching up to do!

MÜV Flower Review: Chemhünd (Hybrid)

Chemhünd (pronounced “Kim-hoond”) is MÜV’s cut of the classic Chemdog strain. There’s an entire cannabis story/legend behind the origins of Chemdog, so if you want to read up on that, there’s a good article from High Times here that breaks down a lot of the origin story.

Chemhünd is the only strain that was available in MÜV’s Tier 3 flower at Pensacola’s grand opening. T3 is the lowest of MÜV’s tiers, and is strictly reserved for their “smalls” or “littles” – the smaller, breakaway nuggets that are often found towards the bottom of the cannabis plant. At $32/eighth, based off my experience with this Chemhünd, the T3 option is absolutely worth the money.

Quick Facts:

Chemhünd (Hybrid) 

Price at time of review: $32/eighth (T3)

Lineage: Nepalese x Thai

Batch/Harvest Number: BU030220-7203CH

Cannabinoids

THC: 21.99%

CBD: 0.05%

Total Cannabinoids: 22.04%

Terpenes

Unfortunately, MÜV doesn’t make their lab reports available, so I have no terpene percentages to provide for this strain. Whenever this information becomes available, I will update this section with the terpenes and their percentages.

Appearance/Cure

MÜV’s T3 flower is $32 per eighth vs. the $50 pricetag of their T1 flower or the $40 for T2. Per their website:

Tier 1 ($50) and Tier 2 ($40) are selected based on potency, size, structure, terpene profiles and aroma. Tier 3 is based on size only.

With that being said, I didn’t feel that this Chemhünd was any lesser overall quality than the T1 Rainbow Trainwreck I tried, or the T2 Clementine – at least in regards to potency and terpenes; in fact, this Chemhünd had higher cannabinoid content than both the T1 and T2 bud I picked up..The only difference was the size of the buds – numerous penny-sized “smalls” for T3, several medium size for T2, and a few large rocklike buds for T1.

Chemhünd itself seems to be a pretty strain. Its color is light green with hints of a gold/yellow in the background. Each bud is beautifully and visibly covered in amber trichomes and light orange pistils.

Based on my experience with this eighth, MÜV’s T3 is well grown and worth the $32.

Appearance/Cure Rating: 8.00/10.00

Smell/Taste

Chemhünd smells unlike any other strain I’ve tried in Florida’s medical cannabis industry thus far. To me, it smells like straight funky cheese, to the point that I wouldn’t have thought twice if this was labeled as some sort of Cheese strain variant. The smell in the jar is a bit captivating and so, so unique.

When I grind up the buds, I find that more of a mixture of pine and faint sweet citrus comes out. When smoked, Chemhünd takes nothing like either of the smells it presents. The taste, to me, is very spicy/peppery and earthy. The taste itself is not noteworthy or especially pleasant, but the unique cheese smell really helps define Chemhünd in this category.

Smell/Taste Rating: 8.00/10.00

Effects/Medical Use

Chemhünd feels like a nice, well-rounded 50/50 hybrid strain. A slightly energizing cerebral invigoration takes over immediately after the first hit; this strain has a bit more of a “punch” to it than many other hybrid strains, and the effects are particularly noticeable behind the eyes.

I really enjoyed both cooking a meal and writing this review while under the effects of Chemhünd. As I am about 20-30 minutes in to the effects now as I type this, the relaxing body effects are beginning to become more apparent. This is neither a extremely energetic nor a heavily sedating strain; it really does capture the best of both worlds in both sativa and indica effects. It’s probably one of the most balanced hybrid flower strains I’ve found in some time. It feels a lot like Fluent’s “Baldor” flower, but perhaps with more of a cerebral “punch”. I’d recommend Chemhünd for use any time from early morning until late evening.

Possibly good for treating:

  • Depression and related anxiety 
  • Motivation issues
  • Good for general relaxation
  • Relief of moderate aches and pains
  • Relief of minor to moderate nausea and gastrointestinal discomfort
  • Relief of minor insomnia (in higher doses, and during the latter part of effects)

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: 8.20/5.00

Overall Rating: 8.06/10.00

Overall, I would best describe Chemhünd as a “very good” hybrid strain from MÜV.

This is just the beginning of many, many MÜV product reviews to come. Now that they’ve finally come to my part of Florida, I have a lot of catching up to do!

MÜV Flower Review: Clementine (Sativa)

Clementine. I’ve been waiting for quite a while to see this strain in full flower form, after immensely enjoying it during my early days as a legal cannabis patient; back then, I was filling up VFire pods with Trulieve’s Clementine Truclear distillate and vaping them it out of their Trustik. I always wondered what the flower would smell and taste like, as even the plant-derived terpenes in the Truclear had a nice orange citrus flavor.

I didn’t expect the smell to be amazing, but I found one of my favorite citrus strains in Florida in MÜV’s Clementine flower.

Quick Facts:

Clementine (Sativa)Most sources online list Clementine as a hybrid strain, but both Trulieve and MÜV list it as a sativa.

Price at time of review: $40/eighth (T2)

Lineage: Lemon Skunk x Tangie

Batch/Harvest Number: BU270120-1663CLM

Cannabinoids

THC: 21.40%

CBD: 0.04%

Total Cannabinoids: 21.44%

Terpenes

Unfortunately, MÜV doesn’t make their lab reports available, so I have no terpene percentages to provide for this strain. Whenever this information becomes available, I will update this section with the terpenes and their percentages.

Appearance/Cure

MÜV’s T2 flower is $40 per eighth vs. the $50 pricetag of their T1 flower. Per their website:

Tier 1 ($50) and Tier 2 ($40) are selected based on potency, size, structure, terpene profiles and aroma. Tier 3 is based on size only.

https://altmedflorida.com/product/copy-copy-2/

With that being said, I didn’t feel that this Clementine was any lesser quality than the T1 Rainbow Trainwreck I tried, at least in regards to potency and terpenes; in fact, this Clementine had higher cannabinoid content. The only difference was the size of the buds – medium size for T2, and large rocklike buds for T1.

Clementine itself is a pretty flower. Mostly lime green hues give way to medium green accents, all absolute covered in milky trichomes and light pink pistils. This eighth is moderate in density and has nearly perfect moisture content, and has a bit of stickiness about it.

Based on my experience with this eighth, MÜV’s T2 is well grown and worth the $40.

Appearance/Cure Rating: 8.20/10.00

Smell/Taste

As I said at the beginning of the review, I’m very impressed with the smell of this flower. It’s loud and very orange citrus-esque. Very bright citrus terpenes. The smell reminds me of an actual clementine right after it’s been peeled and the little sections are broken open. The smell is also reminiscent of Sunkist or any similar orange-flavored soda. Of all the “lemon” and “orange” citrus-named strains that I’ve tried, MÜV’s Clementine flower deserves its name the most.

Unfortunately, the taste doesn’t come through quite like the terpenes smell. Instead, I find the taste of the smoke on exhale to be more spicy and peppery. It still tastes good – just not like it smells.

If you’re looking for a strain that smells like orange citrus, this is the one. Absolutely nailed the naming of this strain with regards to its smell.

Smell/Taste Rating: 9.20/10.00

Effects/Medical Use

Clementine is a comfortable sativa for me; in fact, the Rainbow Trainwreck felt more racy despite the fact that it is labeled as a hybrid strain.

Clementine seems to be a really good mood lifter, causing my depression to fade into nothing, and replacing it with a happy, steady motivation. Like many sativa strains, this seems to enhance colors and general perception of my visual field. Doing tasks like folding laundry (which I usually dislike to an extent) are much more bearable, and doing things I enjoy (like writing this review, playing instruments, etc.) are even more enjoyable.

This is a good daytime strain, and I’d say it’s best for use anywhere from early morning to early evening. It does ease into a dreamy and mellow full-body relaxation as the effects progress, making it a strain that I can’t wait to try before heading out to the beach in the spring and summer.

Possibly good for treating:

  • Depression and related anxiety 
  • ADD/ADHD or focus-related issues
  • Lack of motivation
  • Minor aches and pains
  • Increased energy and alertness (to an extent)

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: 8.40/10.00

Overall Rating: 8.60/10.00

Overall, I would best describe Clementine as an “excellent, exceptionally smelling” sativa strain from MÜV.

This is just the beginning of many, many MÜV product reviews to come. Now that they’ve finally come to my part of Florida, I have a lot of catching up to do!

MÜV Flower Review: Rainbow Trainwreck (Hybrid)

After watching other Florida medical cannabis patients rave about MÜV and their products for well over a year now, they have finally expanded into the west panhandle with their opening of the Tallahassee and Pensacola locations within the past month. I made it by the Pensacola location on 02.15.2020 to take advantage of their 25% off Grand Opening discount, and to finally try some of the products that everyone in South Florida has seemed to enjoy so much for the past couple of years.

MÜV offers 3 flower tiers: T1, T2, and T3, with T1 being the best batches based on size, potency, cannabinoids, and terpenes. Rainbow Trainwreck was the only strain available in T1, so I went ahead and spent the $50 for an eighth to see how it stacked up to T2 and T3.

I can’t find any information about Rainbow Trainwreck, but I assume this hybrid strain is descended from Trainwreck and another strain – possibly Rainbow? No matter what the parents are, one thing is for sure: this strain packs a strong punch.

Quick Facts:

Rainbow Trainwreck (Hybrid)

Price at time of review: $50/eighth (T1)

Lineage: Unknown; possibly Trainwreck x Rainbow

Batch/Harvest Number: BU270120-0298RT

Cannabinoids

THC: 18.43%

CBD: 0.04%

Total Cannabinoids: 18.47%

Terpenes

Unfortunately, MÜV doesn’t make their lab reports available, so I have no terpene percentages to provide for this strain. Whenever this information becomes available, I will update this section with the terpenes and their percentages.

Appearance/Cure

(Glass jar purchased separately.)

MÜV’s T1 flower is supposed to be the best of the batch – the biggest nugs. This eighth of Rainbow Trainwreck did not disappoint; the 3 large nugs pictured weighed out to 3.6 grams.

While the nugs are large, they are also extremely dense. It took some extra effort to grind up larger pieces of this eighth, but it all breaks down nicely. This flower is also fairly sticky with nearly perfect moisture content, and the ground flower has an almost “soft” consistency that usually indicates the bud was cured and/or dried well.

This is pretty standard-looking green flower with orange and brownish pistils, but it is beautifully grown, and features an abundance of milky trichomes.

Compared to the T2 and T3 options I tried, the large buds coupled with the high quality of the flower made me feel that it was fair to put this flower in a higher tier. Well done, MÜV!

Appearance/Cure Rating: 8.00/10.00

Smell/Taste

Rainbow Trainwreck has a complex terpene profile with a lot of different subtle smells going on. The first smell that comes to mind upon opening the jar is a lighter, sweet citrus. Not necessarily any distinct citrus fruit such as oranges or lemons – just a general citrus smell.

I also detect a hint of pine in the background. There are hashy notes that remind me of strains like King Dosi, and there’s an overall smell of sweet fruit lingering in the background as well. All of it comes together for a very pleasant smell that seems to sit on the “lighter” side of the spectrum. It doesn’t smell skunky or musky, but it smells dank – if that makes sense.

Few flowers I’ve tried are able to preserve the taste when I smoke them in a bowl, but Rainbow Trainwreck does. The taste, remarkably, is very similar to the smell with all its complexities. This was one of those strains that made me think “wow!” and had me taken aback for a second; it’s really good.

Smell/Taste Rating: 8.80/10.00

Effects/Medical Use

Rainbow Trainwreck definitely feels like a strong sativa-dominant hybrid to me. Though I haven’t tried its Trainwreck parent in flower form, I have read that many users can feel the negative side effects of anxiety and paranoia when first trying the strain. That seemed to be my experience with this Rainbow Trainwreck as well; even though I have a moderate tolerance, a couple of hits sent me into a bit of an anxious and hyper-aware state. For patients that struggle with anxiety from strong sativa effects, tread lightly with this one. It took a few times for me to be able to “harness” the effects of this strain.

Once I got a handle on Rainbow Trainwreck, though, it’s a really nice energetic and motivational strains. Even though it’s a hybrid, I’d put the energetic and racy components up there with the likes of Sour Diesel and other powerhouse sativas. This would be a great strain on a morning that you need to get a lot of things done. If you can control the effects, it is a great mood lifter as well.

After about 30-45 minutes, light body-relaxation effects begin to creep in, easing into a gentle taper out of the peak effects. I’d recommend this strain mostly for morning or early afternoon use.

Possibly good for treating:

  • Depression and related anxiety 
  • ADD/ADHD or focus-related issues
  • Lack of motivation
  • Improves concentration and memory recall
  • Increases energy/alertness, in a way almost similar to caffeine 
  • Minor aches and pains

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: 8.00/10.00

Overall Rating: 8.26/10.00

Overall, I would best describe Rainbow Trainwreck as an “excellent” hybrid strain from MÜV.

I would be open to buying Rainbow Trainwreck again in the future, though I feel that T2 or T3 would be just as medicinally beneficial for this strain. If you’re looking for a high-energy hybrid that could get away with being labeled as a sativa strain, I definitely recommend giving this one a try.

This is just the beginning of many, many MÜV product reviews to come. Now that they’ve finally come to my part of Florida, I have a lot of catching up to do!
