Looking to find inner peace and get your Zen on? Soulful contemplation just got a little easier with the CALM 139 pre-roll by Canndescent. Made with ultra-premium whole flower, this potent Indica comes from the proprietary strains Canndescent has developed to illicit numerous desirable effects.
You won’t get confused by crazy strain names with Canndescent, just scurry towards the effect you’d like to embody, such as CALM, CRUISE, CREATE, CONNECT, or CHARGE. They also classify their bud as "virgin," meaning that they handpick the flower from the stem without ever disturbing the gorgeous, medicinal sticky trichomes perched atop the flower. Hold on to your MJ terpenes ladies and gents, those essential oils are the secret sauce behind the effects!
We chose to consumer test Canndescent’s Calm 139 pre-roll because, in today’s crazy world, our anxiety levels have reached an all-time high. We’re 150% behind the philosophy of radical self-care; "taking the edge off" is no longer a luxury but a necessity for maintaining a healthy lifestyle balance!
Our first feel-good moment with our new MJ pre-roll was when our delivery driver zoomed away, leaving us (the two "testers") quite literally holding the bag on the side of the street. Out came a delightful bright orange package of CALM pre-rolls, and the poppy-colored box with an elegant logo that screams luxury, akin to Hermes or Chanel.
Turning over the pre-roll box, the label at the bottom says "CALM – Read a book, sleep soundly, and find relief." We both nod in agreement, a silent nonverbal "Yes!", and walk towards the house. We plan to enjoy our new MJ acquisition in my sunny California garden – which also happens to feature the finest array of succulents this side of the Missippi.
Sitting down on two comfy chaise lounges, we inspect the pre-roll box and slide it open. Inside rest six individual pre-rolls, nicely separated from one another with Canndescent printed horizontally down the filter. The packaging has a specific wow-factor, like a celebration in a box, that now seems to put other pre-roll brands to shame.
On their site, Canndescent claims to be, "the first luxury cannabis brand, is an ultra-premium, effects-based product line designed to help consumers select flower based on their individual needs." Right now, I feel the need to be relaxed in my sun-dappled garden, so I take out the first one gram pre-roll jay, hand one to my fellow tester, and we light up.
The first hint of scent as the smoke wafts upwards is both spicy and earthy. After a draw, the spicy, earthy flavor gives way to a hint of pine, with a delicate flavor left in the mouth. CALM has three main terpenes myrcene, limonene, and caryophellene which shore up and magnify the full body and head high that washes over us like a warm breeze. CALM feels gentle and doesn’t impose the couch-lock associated with many Indica strains; it has a smooth intake, and a full-body relaxation ensues. Other reviews compare CALM to Kush strains, and we both concur.
Ten minutes after our first few puffs, we lean back and enjoy watching a sweet hummingbird dart from one lavender flower to the next. We both feel relaxed, yet fully present. CALM lives up to its name. Shop for Canndescent effects-based products on the Canndescent site.
