CheapWeed Purple Afghani and Zedd x Nuken review

I'm sure everyone here knows CW and Tony by now.


Overall rating out of 10:
8/10 for me.
I really like CW, and Tony has always been cool. I see lots of hate, but I've never really understood why.


Sign Up:
Sign up is very simple, ID required.


Ordering & Pricing:
Ordering is a standard checkout system, with pretty nice bulk pricing.
It kinda seems like Tony's prices have increased over time, as it's hard to find anything that looks good in the lower price ranges. You can find some steals here and there for 700-750, (I bought some Blackberry once that was some of the best stuff I've ever seen, and it was 725 for a HP and I had also gotten a purple strain in one of my first orders for 675 that was fire) and some consistent fantastic quality for higher prices, but anything below that you probably shouldn't expect too much.


Communication:
Communication with Tony is great. As the company expands, the e-mails take a little longer, but it's overall very well done.


Packaging:
Ever since my first order, CW has been the golden standard for packaging. Very well taped shipping box, with a vac sealed bag inside, and a double vac sealed bag containing your product.

Zedd x Nuken
This strain was actually really good for the price I got it at. It has a great sour smell that is definitely reminiscent of a common Nuken smell, with a flavor to match.
It has a strong couch-lock high that made me personally pretty tired after smoking a couple grams.
The nugs have a great bright green color, mixed with some darker hues that are quite visually appealing.
The only downside that I could see is that in the 14 or so grams I took out of my HP for this review, I found a little bit of what I can only assume is perlite, and a few of what seems to be seeds. (Please correct me if you think I'm wrong)
Definitely not my favorite sight, and I hope it's not an issue with the rest of the HP. Loses a couple points for that.

This would've been an 8/10 strain, but I can't give it such a high rating while finding things inside of the buds that shouldn't be there.

I personally give it a 6/10. (AA+) First experience finding anything inside of a bud from CW, can't imagine it's a common occurrence but I'm definitely not a fan of seeds in my weed.

Purple Afghani
This is one of those steals that I was talking about. The strain so nice I had to photograph it twice.
It's currently sold out, but when I bought it, I got my HP for $725 and it could easily be sold for more than that.
It has a wonderful, very pungent "purp" smell. That great gassy, fruity smell that we all know and love.
It burns nicely, has a very smooth smoke, and the flavor is wonderful. I love a good purple strain, and this is definitely a great one. I'd recommend scooping some of this up next time it's available if you're into purple strains.
The buds are trimmed well, have a gorgeous purple color, and are exploding with flavor.
I'd rate this 8.5/10 (AAAA).
Maybe I'm being a bit generous because of my general bias towards purp, but I guess I'm allowed to do that in my review.

Incentive for Customers:
CW has pretty nice bulk pricing, and some of their strains are amazing for the price.
I'm pretty sure they still have a first time customer discount (I may be wrong, it's been a long time since my first order with them) alond with a 5% off code or two if you look around, and Tony is generally pretty willing to work with you and provide the best experience he can.

Incentive for Review:
None, I had asked for a sample of another strain or two to fill out the review, and Tony said he'd see what he could do. When the package arrived there were no samples included. I guess it shipped before Tony had a chance to throw anything in.

Notes:
I have a bit of a nostalgia when it comes to CW, as it was the first MOM I ever ordered from.
Tony helped me get comfortable with ordering online, and sending E-transfers with no real guarantee of receiving a product other than this trust system MOMs have built.
All in all, I think CW has something for you whether you're new to ordering online, or an experienced connoisseur. There's better bulk prices out there, but it's hard to find another site that matches the quality and price you get from Tony. Especially if you're finding one of those steals.

Ive ordered from tony 4 times and have been disappoint thus far. Im not sure if its mildew, fungus or poor flush job but literally every bowl i smoke irritates my throat and lungs.

Ive had this happen with the pre98 bubba, blackwater, black diamond, nuken , cbd dream, blue magoo, blue huron.

Anyone else notice a scratchy throat from cw only?
I personally haven't tried ANY of the strains you listed, but I've tried weed from CW, and probably 10-12 other MOMs. Only one I've ever noticed a nasty taste, or scratchy throat was FairCannaCare. Stay away from those guys.
I've smoked at least 10-15 different strains from Tony, and at this point it must be nearly 10 pounds I've ordered from him this year.
A couple times the smoke was a little harsher than I'd like, but I can't say I've ever noticed an irritated throat from smoking any CW product. I've never seen mildew, or fungus on anything ordered from Tony.

Just ordered some OG Kush, Purple Haze, and $100 OG. 2 month tolerance break is officially over 😎
My batch of $100 sort of smelled and tasted like rotten celery. Didn't enjoy it at all. Looked nice with lots of crystal and the odd purpley bud though
I've also had weird smelling product from them 3 times in a row now, what a waste of money

Still shopping round,Cheapweed had some good wholesale prices
If you're looking for similar wholesale prices, I've had good experiences with TheHighClub and BulkWeedInbox. They both run great wholesale prices, and have the same or similar mix and match discounts.

Sucks to hear about your negative experience, especially with the $100 OG because I ordered that strain like 6 or so months ago and it was one of my favorite from CW. Glad I didn't get any of the newer batches.

Yeah that definitely looks like perlite. I had some in my GDP from KC. I didn’t know what it was at first, but it was perlite. Small white rice grain that crumbles when pressed together.
I only found that tiny little bit of it in one nug, along with some of what I could only assume were seeds in 2-3 nugs that I grabbed all at the same time. After that there were no further issues, which I found pretty odd.

does your grimm5 not working anymore have anything to do with your sudden shift?

more like Ts trying to cut corners, I've mentioned the barn smell before from CWs shake/ground leaf commented right in the CW review sections of the site,low price bulk I suppose is barn smell included.. been with them since day one too,real sad over here as it was my go to bulk but its a big market ,so to answer your question it's more like the final straw, first he leaves me blowing in the wind over quality then expects me to spend full price(no affiliate earnings),he can blow me..next
