Packaging/Shipping – 10/10
Just like my last review, Tweedle Farms has mastered the art of packaging and shipping. It comes discreetly in a mylar, air-tight bag, and then vacuum-sealed for extra precaution.
Appearance – 5/10
Tweedle Farms advertises this batch of AC/DC as lightly trimmed, so the colas aren’t entirely bud. There are some stems and some seeds, but not nearly as many as the Otto x Cherry outdoor strain that Tweedle Farms had a couple months ago. A nice even spread of trichomes gives the flower some twinkle, which is always nice to see, but nothing to write home about.
Smell/Taste – 9/10
Like nearly all high CBD strains, AC/DC’s most prominent terpene is myrcene, which gives it an herbal musk akin to hops or lemongrass. The second prominent terpene is a-Farnesene, which is neat since it isn’t a terpene that you will see at such high numbers. Farnesene is most notably found on the skins of apples and serves as a natural insect repellent, but it also gives AC/DC a killer granny smith apple scent as well.
Combusting this stuff is a win in my book. It’s very smooth and it retains a lot of its terpene profile when heated up. It almost tastes like candy, with an aftertaste that is very similar to a strain known as Bubblegum. The apple scent also translates to the smoke very well too.
And for all you vaporizer-users, you will find that the taste is even fruitier and the hits are even smoother.
Effects – 8/10
AC/DC will have you feeling focused, but also with a little bit of an indica-couchlock to it. If cannabis and its varieties tends to make you tired, then this might not be the best strain for you if you’re trying to get things done. However, I believe many users will be able to stomach the effects without falling asleep. In my opinion, AC/DC is a great if you are relaxing or doing mundane tasks on your computer, like sending emails or doing your taxes.
In terms of anxiety and depression relief, AC/DC is average (not “bad” — it still provides some relief and euphoria). This strain is probably a little better at pain relief, especially in higher dosages, as you will find your muscles relaxed with a little bit of a body tingle almost immediately. If you suffer from any sort of chronic pain, AC/DC will probably help alleviate your symptoms.
Overall – 8.5/10
AC/DC by Tweedle Farms is a solid strain. I wish it were a little better in the anxiety department, but it is succeeds at pain relief, focusing, and relaxing. In terms of taste, this batch of AC/DC is one of my favorite for high CBD strains. Whether you are looking to try hemp flowers for the first time, or just looking to restock, AC/DC is probably well and good enough to try.
