It’s been a while since we’ve reviewed a new strain from the team at Progressive Treatment Solutions, so when I spotted a new drop from the company’s Paul Bunyan label, I was instantly intrigued. I stopped by Consume Marion and picked up an eighth of Paul Bunyan Oreoz to see what PTS has been up to.
Oreoz is a hybrid cross of Cookies & Cream and Secret Weapon. This batch of flower tested at 1.38% CBGa, 0.48% Delta 9 THC, 23.13% THCa, and 24.99% total cannabinoids. Terpenes were 1.45% of the total weight with β-caryophyllene, limonene, and linalool being the heaviest.
A handful of small popcorn buds carried a solid tone of olive green at the base, accented heavily with deep-purple, almost black sugar-leaf remnants. The trim job was light overall, which kept the trichomes relatively intact but left a few sugar leaves on the flower. Underneath the sugar leaf, the bud was lively, as the included moisture pack had maintained the flowers springiness even inside a plastic jar.
Opening the jar released a blend of cocoa, cream, and a sweet-doughy tone that tied the notes together into a sweet-cookie aroma, followed with tangy highlights of lemon, lime zest, and hints of diesel. The notes of diesel and lemon zest came to the front of the palate, flipping the aromatic profile on its head, as the sweet cream and chocolate appeared only as hints near the finish.
Oreoz was much heavier than anticipated, providing a quick hitting heaviness to my body that relieved some pain as it became an even stronger indica pressure over the next half hour. A haze set into my mental space, and focusing became difficult as my awareness closed in for a half hour.
Eventually, this mental fog cleared and a quiet, introspective headspace took hold. For more Illinois News Joint reviews, visit here. To learn more about cannabis-friendly events in Illinois, visit here.
