Green Crack & Strawberry Kush Shatter Review

Shatter Review + Some Exciting GreenBox Updates!


 

What's up Cannabis Growers and welcome back to GreenBox Grown. Today I'm going to be doing a little strain review for you guys on some of this Green Crack shatter that I recently picked up at the local dispensary. I also have a couple other cool updates for you guys, such as an article that recently came out on GreenBox as well as our Deluxe seed starting kit which I have setup right here. Before I get started, I'd also like to mention to check out our patreon page in the link Down Below in the description, and you can subscribe for some 1-on-1 grow advice from a grow expert such as myself. If you want, you can also just go to patreon.com and search GreenBox Grown, and you'll see our page there. Of course I'm very thankful for any donations you guys make no matter how big or small, and now that you know what we're going to be doing in this video let's get started!

Before we get started with the strain review or the magazine article, I wanted to give you guys a quick look at what our Deluxe seed starting kit looks like, all setup. So there are some additional items I added in here like this little heater, but this is pretty much the same setup. You'll see I have my same humidity dome in there, and again this is just a really small grow tent which is nice because you didn't you don't have to heat your whole grow tent while your plants are only taking up this humidity Dome. 

So it saves a lot of energy, and you'll see we have the fan back there and this is just a 45 watt LED as this is all you really need during the stage. And then the humidity and temp reader which I'll put inside the humidity Dome once I get started. We got the Solo cups for once they get a little bigger, and that's pretty much it so I'll be starting my Autoflower LST grow pretty quickly here. Which is going to be some Blue Amnesia Seeds, courtesy of The Ministry of Cannabis.  And you'll see that once I get this started and germinate I'll have them in here, set up with the seed starting kit. All right now let's go check out that article in the HydroLife Magazine.

All right, so as you guys can see the deluxe seed starting kit that we have there is very convenient as well as compact. So you can really just have that in your closet or kind of in the corner of your bedroom. And it makes it really nice if you're going to be germinating a lot of seeds, or just having a lot of plants going through the veg cycle, you can just run them through there while you have other plants flowering or larger ones vegging in the bigger tent. All right now let's check out this article which is in the latest edition of the Hydra Life Magazine. You'll see it's on page 28 and goes to page 30. And it's really just a quick bio on green box grown but I just wanted to give a huge shout-out to hydro life for setting this up. 

Really really really thankful to be shown and to have GreenBox Grown showcase and such a reputable magazine. So that is really cool, and I hope you guys pick up your copy of Hydra life at your local dispensary or smoke shop so you can check out this article and let us know what you think about it in the comments below. So as always now it is time for my favorite part of this video which is of course the strain review of this Green Crack Shatter. So let's get started with that!

First thing I want to do here before I heat up the Banger, is give you guys a close up of the strawberry Kush by house of loud that I've been smoking on. This is really nice, it's more of like it's not really sticky so you can just break it off and drop it straight on by hand. Super light in color, super super strong. And again it's the Strawberry Kush. And now this is the Green Crack by Terp X which I'll be smoking today.   and I actually haven't had this one yet by them, so this is going to be new for me, first time and very excited for that.

But yeah, you can see it's clear and very light in color, way more of a golden color, let's see here. A little comparison. So that's the Terp X Green Crack on the left and the House of Loud Strawberry Kush on the right. Banger is now heated so I'm going to let it cool off for a little bit. And you can see here is the dab that I have set up if I can get this to focus a little bit. Definitely a more Amber, gold Hue than that strawberry Kush. So let's see how it dabs.  Alright, cheers guys!

Super terpy, very smooth and you get that taste that is just like the smell. Very strong and Piney taste.   And again very smooth and a very instant head high. There's a little bit of a pineapple aftertaste in there too. All right let's get, I'm going to do a little bit of the strawberry kush for you guys just so you can see out and melts on the Banger. So let's meet get this heated real quick. Alright so here's the bit of strawberry Kush that I'll be dropping on. It's a nice little piece. All right the nail is now ready, so I'm going to drop her on.

Alright folks, that concludes my review on the Green Crack Shatter there as well as the Strawberry Kush Shatter that I picked up from my local dispensary. Again as I mentioned earlier in the video, you can visit my Patreon page from the link Down Below in the description section. And I'll also include a link to the deluxe seed starting kit down there, so you can see pricing as well as more details on that.

NEW STRAIN REVIEW: Banana Kush Shatter by House of Loud

Latest Strain Review: Banana Kush Shatter Below


What's up Cannabis Growers and welcome back to GreenBox Grown. As always my name is Dylan and today I'm going to be doing another strain review for you guys and I'll be reviewing some of this Banana Kush Shatter which is made by the House Of Loud. And that's a predominantly Northern California, throughout California brand, they’re really good and I've reviewed a few of their other products before on my channel. And if you guys want to see some other product and strain reviews I've done in the past, just go to greenboxgrown.com to check that out. And now let's get started with some close-ups of this shatter.

Alright guys, so now I'm going to open up my house of loud banana kush, and this is a half gram of their shatter. It looks like, it looks like it's more of a consistency between shatter and a little bit more of like a gooey substance, I'll give you guys a close up right now though. Let's see if I can do this, let's get the light over here.

Alright guys so now for the strain review I decided I was going to do the dab first before reading about the genetics and how well the plant grows and stuff like that. So that way I could have some time pass to let the effects of the dab soak in, so I can give you guys a better review on how the strain works and I also haven't smoked yet today so I've got a fresh clean slate so I can really tell you guys how well this works.  Especially for chronic back pain as well as knee and joint pain.  Alright, so let's do a dab of this banana kush. and since it's not really sticky and gooey, I'm just going to pick up a piece and drop it on the Banger like so, something like this. all right let me heat this bad boy up.

 That was close, alright I'm going to let it cool off a little bit and then I'll drop this on. This is a pretty cool recycler I have right here, but I don't have a quartz Banger for it yet. I just have the titanium nail. So I haven't really been using that. A lright, cheers guys!

Like the Kush name designates as normal, this is an Indica dominant strain. I believe it's a hybrid which I will give more details about now. But, this is definitely an Indica as I can feel it right as I exhale and I can feel it in my head just right behind my eyes it's really relaxed and as well as my joints and my back pain it just kind of just eases away, just kind of slowly melts away.  

Alright, now for a little bit on the background of the strain as well as it's genetics, and how it is to grow at home. So, Banana Kush is a legendary West Coast strain which is a cross between Ghost OG as well as Skunk Haze. So it's an Indica dominant hybrid and it tastes like bushels of bananas apparently. Although it leans towards an indica dominant genetically, the effects are balanced by the haze as it does provide sativa effects such as a relaxed sense of euphoria. And of course this is all coming from Leafly, you guys can pretty much look up any strain On their for details about how to grow it, it's genetics, what its effects are like when you smoke it, so definitely check Leafly out for that.

In terms of its grow info, it's a moderate difficulty to grow and it's going to grow moderately tall so it's not super short and bushy like an Indica, but it's also not going to be super tall and skinny like a sativa. It's going to be somewhere in the middle. But it's a really high yielder as it can you 3 to 6 oz per square foot, so that's pretty high. It also has a 7 to 9 week flowering Period. Which is one of the shorter flowering periods so it's a pretty efficient strain for getting high yields in a short amount of time. And let's see, tips for growing banana kush. You can visit leafly.com for more details on that. And for flavors it has sweet tropical and fruity, tree fruit. So very good strain to try out and I definitely recommend it for you guys.

Alright, so now that I have had some time to let the effects soak in, I can say not only do I feel it really well behind my eyes, and just overall in my head. But all throughout my body and my joints like I was saying, it's very relaxed and the pain has really eased and gone away. I can feel more movement in my joints as I move my arms and legs around. There's less resistance and there's less pain, so I definitely recommend trying the strain out if you were looking for pain relief.

All right guys that sums up my strain review of the Banana Kush Shatter, by the House of Loud. And you guys can get those at pretty much any dispensary in Northern California and throughout other parts of California of course. And if you guys enjoyed the video please give it a thumbs up, and comment below with your feedback.

Grape Head Shatter Review (By TerpX)

Grape Head Shatter Review (By TerpX)

Dabbing Grape Head Shatter by TerpX


What's up cannabis growers, and welcome back to GreenBox Grown.  As always, my name is Dylan and today I'm going to be doing another strain review for you guys.  I'm going to be doing the Grape Head shatter which I talked about in my last strain review.  That was when I was doing the Pineapple Jack shatter review.  This is going to be a TerpX.  TerpX is going to be the brand that made the shatter.  And they are, like I said in the last video, really good quality and they're like 10 to 15 dollars for a half gram at dispensary.  So definitely check those out.  If you guys have any suggestions for a strain, whether it's flower or some sort of concentrate that you guys want me to review, you should post that in the comments below.  

And then also visit GreenBoxGrown.com, if you want to see my past strain review videos.  Also, I want to give a shout out to my boy Shmap Tastic for winning this month's GreenBox Grown seed give away.  And if you want to sign up for that also visit the GreenBox Grown website and you'll see the pop-up for where you can sign up.  All right, now let's get started with testing out some of this Grape Head shatter.  

All right, guys, so, of course, I'm going to give you a little bit of information and background on the Grape Head strain, and I'll also sample some of it up for you guys, give you a little taste review and how, you know, I enjoy the high from it.  But first, let's do a close up on all three of these strains.  I've got some Bubba Kush, obviously the Grape Head I'm going to be reviewing.  And then some more of the Pineapple Jack which I showed you guys last week in my last review.  But got some more of it because it was really good.  Let's do a little closeup of those.  All right.

So the Pineapple Jack is already opened because this is what I've been smoking on lately.  Like I was telling you in the last video it's super shattery so it's like if you pick it up, it doesn't stick to your fingers or anything, it's kind of nice, you don't need a dabber, you can just drop this on the nail.  Or I'm sorry, on the banger.  All right.  So let's check out this Bubba Kush first.  Some complicated packaging we've got going on here.  So I'll put the camera down for a second.  All right.  And again, they come on this plastic, the TerpX shatters come on this plastic paper, not parchment. 

 See if it will focus.  It's got that golden color, can't really get it to focus too well, and it looks like also it's some good shatter that you can just drop on.  And now, let's check out the Grape Head.  Oh, wow, yeah, this one is really looking good.  Yeah, again, a little more taffy like but still very, very golden.  Don't want that to fall off.  Yeah, so there's a good little comparison, there is the Bubba Kush, and then this the Grape Head. 

Now you guys have gotten close-ups of the different strains and the Grape Head shatter.  I'm going to give you guys a little bit of background on its genetics and where it came from.  So Grape Head head is very close to Grape Kush or DJ Short's, Grape Kush for those of you who heard of that strain before.  You can really compare the way it is going to taste and affect you to that.  So strain highlights, this is off of the Leafly strain review, by the way.  It's a productive Marijuana hybrid strain that has sharp and fruity Aromas.  And a long lasting and a powerful inducing euphoric head high.  And a relaxed body high.  

So yeah, we're good for getting relaxed.  For growing it takes seven to nine weeks to flower on average and it is -- its lineage is pre '98, it's a cross of pre '98 Bubba Kush and Romulan Grapefruit.  For the flavors it's got grape, sweet and earthy, and it's got a lot of good positive reviews on here.  So definitely worth checking that out.  

Now as always it is time for my favorite part of the video which is taking a dab so I'm going to break off a little piece of this Grape Head, like I said.  And it might be actually -- all right, let me get the dab tool for this.  Here's a closeup of the snap I'm going to be taking off of that Grape Head chunk.  And I heated up the nail already or banger so it's ready to go.  I'm just letting it cool off to the appropriate level.  We're almost there.  All right.  Cheers, guys.  Very smooth and taste -- I don't really taste the grape flavor.  I do taste that it's sweet.  But yes, it's 

definitely very smooth and you feel that head high I was describing from Leafly earlier.  You feel that as soon as you exhale almost.  Starting to feel the body high come on slowly.  

But definitely the head high I can feel that immediately really strong and right behind the eyes underneath and like up above the forehead area.  So definitely very relaxing.  And, like I said, I smoked it before so I kind of know the long term feeling after it's really settled in.  And definitely like I was describing, the body high really does take over after a little bit and it's definitely a long lasting high that's really enjoyable.  

All right folks, that's all I have for the Grape Head shatter strain review.  And if you guys have any recommendations for strains or types of concentrates you want me to review on this channel in the future, just put that in a comment below and I'll be sure to test that out.  Also, if you enjoyed the video, please give it a thumbs up and don't forget to subscribe to the GreenBox Grown channel.  Also, turn on notifications so you can get the latest updates on my most recent grows.

House of Loud Pineapple Jack Shatter (Strain Review)

HOL Pineapple Express X Jack Herer Shatter Review


 What's up cannabis growers, and welcome back to GreenBox Grown.  As always, my name is Dylan and today I'm going to be doing a little strain review for you guys as I just got back from the local dispensary.  As you can see, I got set up pretty well as I bought a bunch of dabable products.  So we're going to be busting out the quartz banger for that. 

And if you guys want to see the other strain reviews and product reviews as well that I've done in the past, just head on over to GreenBoxGrown.com and you'll see under the videos tab there's a product and strain reviews button. 

    All right.  So now what I'm going to do is decide on which one of these I'm going to try or review for this video.  And so you'll see I picked up some stuff from TerpX as well as House of Loud.  And these guys I really like their stuff because, first off, it's affordable, it's like ten dollars to fifteen dollars max for half a gram of their product.  And, I mean, there's stuff that goes all the way up to 50 and 60 for half a gram, but, of course, that's like the top of the top top shelf stuff.

    But anyways, I get this ten dollar to fifteen dollar half gram stuff and I really love it, really good concentrate so be sure to check them out.  I also got -- so this is one of the higher end stuff, this is a half gram by Kaizen and this is some life resin sherbert.  This isn't the sauce though.  This is the crystalline and I'm going to be saving that for a later review.  So let's see, I've got the banana kush out, that's the TerpX.  And then I've got Pineapple Jack and sour sherbert.  So I think what I'm going to go with is the Pineapple Jack for this review.  

All right.  So time to bust this bad boy open, see how it looks.  And, by the way, this banana kush is really good, I've just already tried it so I figured I would open something new for this video.  Again, this is the House of Loud Pineapple Jack.  You see this one, it's weird, so the House of Loud always comes on the parchment paper, while the TerpX stuff comes on this, it's like a plastic see-through, just different but anyways, the plastic is nice because the concentrate generally sticks to that. 

You can see this is just some shatter, not really sticky at all.  Definitely smell the Jack Herer in there.  Give you a little closeup of this.  Here's a closeup on the forward facing camera, so it's a little better quality.  See a little better.  It's a little darker, not as clear as I usually like it but still, I'm sure this will be smooth and tasty as always.  

    All right.  Now it's time for my favorite part of this video which is, of course, taking the dab itself.  So I'm going to break off a nice little chunk here.  So let's see, that's definitely shatter.  So I've got a little piece here,  and I'm just going to heat up the nail.  And then it's go time.  I don't know if you guys can see that from here.  It's a pretty good size.  I'm going to let the banger cool off a little bit.  All right, cheers guys.  

Very smooth and you can really taste the terpenes in that, the smoke taste, you can tell it just -- it tastes just like the Jack Herer, more so than the Pineapple Express.  But -- yeah, the Jack Herer, especially that sativa high feeling that the Jack Herer gives you that's definitely noticeable.  Almost instantly, and you can definitely feel it really strong, just like right in the top of my head I can feel it almost, almost immediately. 

But definitely -- definitely a tasty and smooth strain that I definitely recommend.  For you viewers in California I think House of Loud is kind of just in Northern California, maybe the Southern Cal area to definitely check them out, all of their stuff is great, as well as TerpX.  I mean, all these products, all these brands are really top notch.  So I have nothing but great things to say about them.  

        All right, guys, that's all I have for the Pineapple Jack strain review.  But if you guys enjoyed the video, please give it a thumbs up and feel free to leave your comment below.
