When nuEra washes bubble hash from Ethos Genetics cultivars, tasty things tend to happen. This time, it’s a cross of Loompah’s Headband and Watermelon Zkittles known as Zour Watermelon. I procured some from nuEra Chicago just two weeks after it was packaged, particularly intrigued by the gram’s 2.3% CBGa and 5.89% terpenes.
The Zour Watermelon’s terpene breakdown was dominated by limonene, with lesser quantities of b-myrcene, b-caryophyllene and b-pinene, in descending order. At 70.31% cannabinoids, this bubble hash rivaled some dabbable concentrates. If I didn’t know any better, I might have tried it.
Thankfully, its performance as a bowl topper and joint reinforcement was more than satisfactory for my boundary-pushing lizard brain. I did, however, happen across my new favorite hash consumption method second to a whopping cannoli: loading it into a cheap banger attached to a small bubbler and cold-starting it with a jet lighter from about five inches away. With patience, this method produced copious, flavorful hits with no direct combustion and an incredibly easy cleanup.
The sandy blonde hash was fine in texture but clumped easily and became adhesive with manual pressure, showing a slight greasedown at external body temperature. As it melted, it resembled a spicy brown mustard, bubbling profusely over several hits. A soft, comforting smell of concha dough, candied lemon zest, and musky melon wafted from the Calyx container.
It took several sessions with Zour Watermelon to unlock all the elements of flavor I could, but my efforts were rewarded with an initial burst of Sour Patch watermelon candy followed by an herbal medley of tarragon and dill. Cinnamon and Caribbean pastry emerged toward the end with a classically hashy, somewhat metallic undertone and a satin-smooth finish.
I found the effects of this bubble hash to be mildly narcotic, giving me about a thirty-minute window to do whatever I needed to prepare for a stony lock-in. When combined with a sleep-inducing flower, Zour Watermelon nearly guaranteed me a nap.
On its own, though, I could power through the heavy eyelid phase to a cozy plateau on which I felt like my skull was rolling down an endless bowling lane. Furthermore, I appreciated the hash’s assistance in helping me regain my appetite during a dissociative morning without drawing me to unhealthy munchies.
I’d recommend this product for getting closer in tune with one’s body and addressing its needs to promote mental healing in turn. Specifically, medicinal users may find relief of insomnia, stress, physical manifestations of anxiety, and gastrointestinal irregularities.
