When I first started writing reviews, I enjoyed introducing the classic strains, such as G6, SBS, Sour D, Jack Herer, and more. But what I really prefer is reviewing strains I’ve never heard of, especially new Illinois strains. And Bedford Grow has several of them. For this concentrate review, I chose my highest scoring concentrate in the Illinois Cannabis Cup kit: Chemdahar Crumble Wax.
Even though I gave the Chemdahar crumble the highest (actually tied) concentrate score, I knew it would not win the cup. First, it’s relatively unknown. Second, as a medical patient, I am looking for specific effects in my concentrates. For sativa, I want a lemony flavor and an energetic and productive head high (with a mild body buzz). I don’t smoke hybrids often, unless they have a specific terpene profile that suits a medical need. For indica, I prefer a concentrate for late at night that delivers a heavy knockout head high with a hellacious body buzz. And Chemdahar crumble delivered those criteria. Bedford Grow keeps a tight lid on the history of its strains, so I don’t know anything about Chemdahar’s lineage.
The light brown Chemdahar was one large chunk of moist crumble with a smooth texture. The aroma was mix of wood and citrus with hints of cloves and spice. The flavor lost most of the citrus but retained that bold earth and clove on the front end of the inhale. The backend of the inhale hit with a floral spice. The exhale was about the same, though a hint of the citrus came through on the backend as well.
The effects category was what scored the highest for me. Chemdahar was a great night concentrate. This batch boasted 82.62% total levels of THC and provided a strong spacey head high that eventually tired me. Chemdahar was filled with three top terpenes I expected: beta-caryophyllene, beta-myrcene, and alpha-humulene.
All three contributed to the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects that continually sent waves of relaxation throughout my body. Add high levels of alpha-bisabolol and linalool and it was no wonder Chemdahar delivered such a body buzz. But what I believe topped off the muscle relaxation and overall sedation was the small percentages of CBD (0.13%), CBC (0.39%), and (CBG 0.24%). It would be nice to see cultivators growing larger percentages of these cannabinoids back into strains, instead of chasing THC.
Chemdahar will definitely be a stable for last-night medication in my cannabis drawer. I can’t wait to try more of Bedford Grow products.
