Introducing the cannabis formerly known as, UP
Now being branded as UP20 officially and on parts of the packaging, this was originally meant to be the weed endorsed by Canadian Legends “The Tragically Hip” but due to cannabis regulations regarding celebrity endorsements the partnership was dropped by Hexo, and a pivot was made. It doesn’t look like they can even figure out what to call it.
So what’s the deal with UP20 now? According to their website…
Our UP20™ promise. From one bud to another, our flower is 20% THC or higher. Every time.
We make this promise to you because buds don’t let buds down. As the industry has grown, we’ve listened to our consumer and we’ve learned, and have evolved as Canada’s cannabis.
We’re up for anything – and that means being up front, honest and true. When it comes to our products, that’s a Canadian value we stand by, with every purchase.
So, come on by and see what we’re about. We’re working hard to make sure you are proud of what we do.
Things are looking up.Up.ca
They went the Dominos route with their marketing here by apologizing on behalf of the industry for being a letdown and promising to do better than the rest.
“A lot of people were let down by legal cannabis. And now it’s our mission to make it up to you because there are just some things that buds don’t do”
So UP UP20 is here to save legal cannabis and change the game right?
Welcome to the Budstuff!
At the start, the bag was underweight and weighed in at 3.44 grams, if I took the time to do their trimming job for them and remove the excess leaf it would probably be closer to 3 grams, and at $35 that’s not acceptable.
Weight should be on point, every single time.
The buds themselves were frosty in appearance but really lacked any punch, smell and very little moisture buds stopped short of crumbling but not ideal sticky dankness.
This brings me to the smell, which was all but absent – I honestly could not pick out or identify a single terpene in this smoke, except to say it tasted bad. This could have something to do with it being packaged 7 months ago.
As you can expect the high sucked, 22% on the label continues to prove THC means very little to the overall high, and length of the high. Especially when the terpenes are not present It’s gotta be the whole package for an enjoyable smoke, and good medical relief.
I’ve never purchased Hexo flower before, and probably won’t ever again.
I’d suggest staying far away from Ghost Train Haze unless you can find it for like $15 or less and still somehow want to be let down.
My expectations for a Hexo product weren’t high to start, but they somehow managed to be even worse than I had imagined.
