Lava Flowers - All their Strains review

#1
** Product received for free, walk on if it bothers you **

MOM Name Lava Flowers

Overall rating out of 10: 7/10

Sign Up: Didn't sign up they sent me a PM on the forum offering samples

Ordering & Pricing: They sent me a sample of each of their 8 strains so I didn't have to pick or pay. Prices are fairly cheap by MOM standards, a couple of 90$ options, up to 150 for their top strain.

Communication: Very courteous, rapid PM replies on the forum, not much to say here. They've been competent at answering people's question on the forum, good stuff.

Packaging: Clear dimebags, double good grade vacuum bags in a small sturdy cardboard box. Zero smell. Only complaint I have is the buds were literally squished really bad, some air in the bags would be a big plus to keep the buds better.

Purple Trainwreck: Bud was pressed almost to a solid block (all the strains came like this, more or less). It's hard to comment on how good it looks, it's really been mistreated by vacuuming hard. Despite this, you can clearly see (well not on my fuzzy pic) the trichones that cover the whole bud. The microscope pic speaks for itself. It's the least dry of the samples, but it's still pretty dry, but there is very slight risidual humidity in the core. The colors are magnificient, it's a mix of dark greens and deep purple, the bud is almost cut in the center with 3/4 of it mainly purple, but the other end is green with almost no purple. The nose is faint but nice and complex, sweet with hints of berries, a hint of citrus. The smoke is smooth, no harshness but the taste overall is not super present when smoking it, but perceptible with every draw of the joint. The buzz is a good mix of indica/sativa effects, you get a strong body buzz but it's not tirying, so you really get the best of both worlds. The dryness and appearance prevents me from calling it a quad but it's definitely a AAA+ and a very nice deal at it's 150$/oz. Giving this a 8/10.

Watermelon x ZSkittles: Bud was pressed almost to a solid block (all the strains came like this, more or less). This came in VERY dry, it's like pot pourri dry. There isn't much nose coming out of it. The taste had little terps but still had a very faint sweetish state, but it came with a harshness that made it not much fun to smoke. Buzz is moderate, good mix of body and mind, not too couchlocky. Giving this a 5/10. 130$ oz.

Pink Berry: 90$ OZ. Pretty much no terps, but smokable, a slight harshness but forgivable for the price. 3/10
Cherry: 100$ OZ. Tiny bit of terps, nice taste but it comes through faintly and sporadically. A bit harsh. 4.5/10
OG: 110$ OZ. Not much terps but tiny hints of pepper/sourness, reminds me of cookie strains. Bit harsh but manageable. 4/10
Mango: 90$ OZ. This one has some terps but faint, it's flowery/perfumy. Slight harshness but forgivable for the price. 4.5/10
Goo Berry: 90$ OZ. No perceivable terps, bit harsh. Least interesting of the 90$ options. 3/10
Watermelon: 90$ OZ. Some terps but faint, very low grade version of watermelon. A bit of a sharp harshness, smokable. 4.5/10

Incentive for Customers: Free shipping on 250+, 15$ flat rate shipping otherwise.

Incentive for Review: The pack was offered with no strings attached, they did not ask for a review in return.

Notes: All strains except Purple Trainwreck were extremely dry (bust with your fingers in a few seconds dry).

Thanks for the review. Mine definitely reached that point of dryness quickly where they could be crumbled with the fingers and Purple Train Wreck was very dense, squished and compacted, a shame because it was a pretty nice flower otherwise.
Train wreck is unfortunately the only thing worth ordering based on what I got.. The 99ish market has much better options.

I do agree there are better $99 ounces (King Tut's Nuken was a gamechanger)

Brutally honest review, I respect that. Lacking nose, dry af and harsh taste. I will avoid the disappointment of ordering from this MoM.
Honesty is big biggest flaw :) None of them were extremely harsh, but I'm not a 99$ oz expert, I only buy top shelf so I'm judging everything on the "overall" scale of weed. Actually, price isn't even a factor in the notes I give, be it a 500$ strain or a 50$ strain I'm going to review it the same exact way.

The train wreck was nice, I would have zero issues paying 150$ for it. Lots of MOMs would charge 200-250$ for that kind of stuff (not saying it would be right to do so, but it would not be outrageous, given the average market).
