There are cultivators that seem to stick to a handful of strains, and there are those that have a seemingly endless pool of in-house genetics that they pull from. Bedford Grow is one of the latter. Anytime I think I’ve seen everything Bedford Grow has to offer, they drop a laundry list of new options. This was the first time I had seen Michelin Star, here as a concentrate, on the menu at Maribis Springfield and I was happy to try.
Michelin Star is an indica leaning hybrid cross of Tres Star and Key Lime Mints. This gram of live resin tested at 59.35% THCA, 5.35% CBGA, and 70.39% total cannabinoids. The primary terpenes were b-caryophyllene, limonene, and b-myrcene.
This gram came as a mass of tiny diamonds swimming in a pool of thick terpene-heavy sauce. BG describes this as a live resin, but the crystalline THCa was visible with a naked eye placing the consistency somewhere between a sugar and “diamonds and sauce.” The color of the sauce was a notably deep orange-amber.
The aroma in the jar was bright on the front with notes of lemon zest, sweet candy, and tangy hops. I detected lavender, honeysuckle, and hints of savory black pepper and garlic as the aroma blossomed.
When vaporized, even at low temperature, the flavor is a complete flip of the aroma with garlic and black pepper leading the way, followed by hints of cinnamon lavender. The sweet/savory profile of the aroma and flavor were a delightful surprise and exactly the complex terpene profile I’d been seeking in a concentrate.
The effects began with a tingly, euphoric body buzz that built upon itself as time passed. My mood was lifted and my anxiety was suppressed. The high CBGa created an experience that was lighter and more energetic than most indicas.
While I found myself profoundly relaxed, I never became mentally dulled or unmotivated. Overall, both the flavor profile and the interesting cannabinoid profile made for a well rounded experience and made this concentrate something I’ll be looking for again.
