Grower: Thai Kush

Rating: 4.4

Someone I respect greatly recently told me that he does not understand any of the nuances in a high. All highs are basically the same for him no matter the bud. He smokes a bit more or a bit less to affect the strength of the high. But he sees no difference from bud to bud. I could not disagree more and Bruntz is a perfect example of that nuanced high.

When I first came to Bruntz I thought I would be disappointed. I have had a few of Thai Kush’s buds and I know he is a good grower—but Bruntz seemed like it would fall below Thai Kush’s normal quality threshold. The aroma is nice, solid, and enjoyable with a peanut butter like initial smell followed by a chemically citrus candy odor. Nothing wrong with it—but also not out of the ordinary these days. But, everything just got better from there. A dry pull of my joint was delicious, citrus honey sweet, refreshing. The smoke itself was equally pleasing and enjoyable, with a smooth earthy candy fruit flavor which never touched on the overly artificial or sickeningly sweet. Bruntz is definitely a modern bud and is far from OG—but it still tastes right, clean and appropriate. 

Bruntz’s very zen high, a high which is relaxed, calm, chill as well as focused and creative, is the bud’s strongest characteristic. This bud is perfect for traversing the city, socializing, engaging, and understanding, all at a slow but deliberate pace. Bruntz is the perfect bud to use when soaking up life and one I would be happy to smoke before a lecture, watching a documentary or going to a museum.  

I recommend Bruntz to both experienced and novice users—it is a true life enhancer. The bud is strong enough to satisfy experienced users—and for that reason should be used sparingly by novice users.
