I wanted to do an Illinois News Joint “stocker stuffing” review for the fun of it, but finding a product at a dispensary cheap enough to consider a stocking stuffer was more difficult than expected. I don’t consider $50-90 eighths to be stocking stuffers. I consider that a present. Even a $25-35 edible is pushing the stocking-stuffer financial limits for me.
Then Ascend Wellness launched its new Ozone Berry Air Pre-Pack Chillum. The perfect stocking stuffer. To pick up the Ozone’s Pre-Pack Chillum, I visited my first recreational dispensary: Ascend Springfield on Horizon Drive.
The chillum cost less than $10 (on sale, I think) and came with a black childproof container and a plastic stopper to plug the bowl when not in use. The container was useful for traveling inside Illinois and allowed me to legally transport the chillum in the smell proof container. The chillum was pre-packed with .3g of Barry Air flower. Barry Air is a hybrid cross between Girl Scout Cookies and Blueberry. This batch tested at 15.61% total THC.
Even packed, the flower displayed dark green and purple leaves and rusty pistils. The cookie and fruity-berry flavor was the expected mix of its infamous parent strains. The inhale had a sweeter berry flavor, but the aftertaste carried a tarter berry.
The smooth head high was more energetic, euphoric, and cerebrally active than expect. I smoked the .3g in two sessions during my normal hybrid strain-use hours of the day. I smoke one session during the afternoon and one during the even. The body buzz onset was slow but eventually caught up with the head high and helped with my back pain.
Am I going to return to Ascend Horizon and buy five more chillums for myself? No, who needs that many chillums? But I may return to buy five more chillums as stocking stuffers for friends, or to hand out at a small get-together. Or maybe as this year’s “Secret Santa Gift Exchange” for my uncle who still thinks pot is harmful.
