Signup - ID required, however, I believe you can place your order without needing the ID verified. First orders can get a free 3.5 and 10% off with their order using coupon code new10!
Package/shipping - SpeedGreens has hands down the best MOM packaging. Your bud will be in a box, in a vacuum sealed opaque bag, inside of which is another vacuum sealed bag, inside of which are pill bottles for the buds with a bodeva for everything, even the grams. Concentrates come in their own zippies with the shatter wrapped in parchment with a sticker and the budder in an eyeshadow container with a silicone insert. Every strain has its own custom label art, grade, weight.
Perks for me - This was a legitimate order of 14 grams and a budder. On MirkaLane’s review I commented they should send me the AA Pink Kush shatter to add to my review. SpeedGreens offered to do this, and threw in 3 more grams because hey why not right. Thanks, SG.
Perks for you - Free 3.5 grams on first order. Free shipping over $99. Anyone can get free gifts at certain price points. Currently they have the coupon repeat15 for your second order and I think new10 for your first order. It does change, whatever the current coupon is it will be on the front page.
Customer Service - They are present and fast to respond via all media I’ve contacted them by.
Buds - The grams are all gorgeously manicured. Sour Patch Kids has some nice big nugs. Platinum Girl Scout Cookies is the only one that consists mostly of ‘popcorn’ sized nugs. I don’t mind popcorn nugs personally, but it doesn’t have the AAAA bag appeal. It was priced lower and the potency is getting me high on one bowl as a heavier user. Everything is at weight or over.
Platinum Girl Scout Cookies - AAAA 4.2/5
While the bag appeal is lacking, the strain is potent. The cure is at a perfect humidity with spring, not crumble, though the flowers are on the loose side. The terps are like a fresh summer day, no pungent notes, no cookie notes. I find it fruity and acidic. The result is a mind-boggling sativa high which comes on powerfully cerebral. The flavor is herbal and smooth, platinum indeed. It’s extremely vapable. If it weren’t for the fact that a few bowls–strike that, a bowl–will bring on a very euphoric, cerebral couchlock, it would be a good wake and bake strain. But as it stands, it’s more of a “you will be able to write as long as you kept the laptop in front of you” strain. I don’t have the munchies. The refrigerator is just so far away right now…
I rated it a little lower because I don't think it's quite a AAAA, more of the AAA+ that some people are flashing as a half-way between AAA to AAAA, but I do keep grabbing it and I found a nug in my Christmas Vacation Grab Bag and identified it immediately due to its unique smell. I recommend it if you're not in it for the looks of a flower, it'll knock your socks off.
Sour Patch Kids - AAAA 4.6/5
The scent is INTENSE, wafts out of the jar. It is both fruity and herbal at the same time. Similarly, the taste is both “fruity candy” but also a little bit of herbal thyme, cilantro, rhubarb. The overall flavor is very complex.
This is 100% a social strain. I have never laughed so much, so hard, writing with my best friend. We’re probably not the comedic geniuses we think we are. You could replace alcohol with this strain and get a similar fun time. Definitely use it at a party or while socializing during the day. When I tested it alone, I found it to be relaxing and provide a gentle psychoactive effect which was not interfering with my overall cognition, but still notably relaxing, not energizing.
Note that in my photo it shows as slightly underweight, but when I shifted it on the scale it was being a bit iffy about whether it was 7.00 or 6.99, so honestly IT'S FINE and they gave me SO MUCH FREE SHIT SO YEAH
Golden Pineapple Budder - AAAA 4.5/5
Beautiful honeycomb butter with a waxy consistency, exactly what I desired. The flavor is almost absent, a hint of pineapple more notably in the smell. No one uses budders for their taste, though. This is without a doubt a sativa, so much so an upper that the first few times I used it I had trouble noticing that it even got me high, I was so lucid and the comedown smooth. Use during the day to feel happier. I believe it would make an ideal work use due to the almost non-existing marijuana odour and potency, allowing one to quickly medicate on the go.
Black Dog - AAAA 3.7/5
Tastes of smooth musky, earthy pine. It has a fast hitting body high that vanishes as fast as it came on. While it tastes and looks great, I feel like I’d have to use it constantly to maintain a good high. This is likely due to my tolerance being higher, and if you have a lower tolerance I would give it a try! I also experienced a sort of ‘crash’ at the end, something I find undesirable and tend to avoid. It’s not a strain I would chose to reorder myself. While in most ways it fits the bill of an AAAA, being nicely trimmed, sticky, a solid single nugget of a balanced consistency, covered in crystals, smelling and tasting great, I just don’t love the effects all that much. Instead I would pick…
Black Rose - AAAA 4.8/5
It’s slightly more expensive but it’s worth it, I think, because of just how potent this indica is. This is one I’d consider to be worthy of the AAAA title. I had been considering purchasing a larger amount of this one and now I’m wishing I had. Hopefully it’ll still be available next time I’m buying. Extremely attractive and enjoyable potent high. Jammed my thoughts up real good, minimized my back pain and erased any ability I might’ve once had to think. Tastes great, like berries and maybe even a bit floral, though it could just be the association from the name. Beautiful flower. You will not be getting anything done on this strain, I’m afraid, save it for night time and pain relief.
Cirique - AAAA 4.7/5
Delicious citrus flavor, the Mountain Dew of weed. Lime and lemon notes both present. Indeed, it’s also uplifting and mellow. I definitely wish I’d purchased a larger amount of this strain and if it’s still in stock in the new year, I might duck back and grab a quarter or half. I find the flavor extremely enjoyable, without any of the harsh tickle of a lemon phenotype at a lower temperature. It’s a enjoyable balanced high.
Pink Kush “Shatter” - AA 3.5/5
Inconvenient to work with at best, what this lacks in manageability it at least makes up for in flavor.
Unlike a waxy budder, the terps are very present in this Pink Kush concentrate. Pine, powerful diesel, and even a touch of berry all make it through. It vaporizes smooth, in the lungs a worthy experience. Whatever process made this concentrate did result in a flavourful distillation with fast pain killing potential. The high kicks in fast, and lasted for a while, I had creeping sedative effects for over an hour and would have easily been able to get to sleep.
I’m thrilled Speedgreens included it as a gift for me to review and while I wouldn’t purchase it again myself, I can see it having a place in the right stoner’s heart. Ideally you love Pink Kush and have the patience of a saint. I have the latter, but not the former. Now if it was Blue Dream “sap” of this potency, with the AA price, I might be buying a wad. I’d put up with the hassle for a strain I loved. I don’t hate keeping the product in the freezer to ensure it’s manageable. As long as you break off the piece you intend to use and return the slab to the freezer in parchment or transfer to silicone, it is usable as shatter.
One method to make it easier to use would be to have kief on hand and use it as a cook might powder a pan, dusting your dabber, or rolling small balls of it in the bottom of your grinder’s reclaim keif. You can also use oil to get your dabber clean and then use the reclaim topically; I used the inevitable sticky bits I couldn’t reclaim from my dabber with some coconut oil on my chapped lips since it’s so dang dry.
In short: Yes, I recommend Speedgreens and will be returning in the future for more weed from them. If I've inspired you to try them, sign up through my affiliate code in the shill factory so I can let people know the specifics of how the program works in my next review.
