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

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.
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.
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.
