Checking All The Boxes: Punch X THE KINE FLAVOR PACK: August-September 2023

Updated: Sep 24, 2023

Episode 5 of Growing For Hash will be out fairly soon, and highlights the best round of the year for Eric Walz and Humboldt Kine Farms. Here are a few of my favorites from the farm that you can find on the shelves, thanks to @Punch_Extracts. A few killer tier ones that check all of the boxes, as well as three of my favorite Tier #3 value jars will be revealed at the end. With a bunch of new tier ones entering the market, let's define exactly what those boxes are I'm looking for, while taking a behind-the-scenes look at the farm.

With the El Niño weather patterns bringing in some warmer evenings and nights, this round has exceeded all expectations. The farm is on point, just gushing in terp drenched flavors. There's going to be a whole lot of clean hash out there in the coming months. HKF terroir has proven itself year after year, to dump hash and rosin.

Checking All of the Boxes

It's extremely rare that I want the same flavor over and over again, as changing things up also helps to deliver the effect I'm looking for. Like anything else, too much of the same thing is no good. It begins to lose its power when smoked over and over again. It's rare to find a cut that checks all of the boxes I'm looking for, let alone doing it over and over. Checking boxes is something mentioned repeatedly, so let's define them (usually).

  1. Hard hitting highs, euphoric, stimulating, & cerebral with solid body effects. A high that's felt in the forehead. Basically, the best of all worlds. A real head changer.

  2. Visually Pleasing (So important). (Looks can be meaningless (or ), however all of the best cuts always stand out in appearance. The two are inseparably tied together... almost & usually). WHITE ROSIN WINS

  3. It tastes amazing and unique. Flavors are sometimes layered and deep. (Sugar on Sugar on Sugar, with a side of OG Gas is what I want).

  4. Smell (less important than taste). Occasionally something has no smell that just smacks with flavor upon the dab.

  5. Develops & advances taste.

  6. Continues to deliver effects after repeated daily use has a category of its own. It's like a PHD on it's certification.

  7. Numbers: I no longer look at numbers. Only the price. God help us.

The Papaya #35 from years back checked these boxes. The THC-Bomb did the same. Now its Grease Bucket & ZBerries turn.
