The Review

CBD Shop Online have been around for a while and I’ve been impressed by their offerings in the past.

As I hadn’t tried any strains from them for a while, I thought I would try out some of their newer products. So I ordered OG Kush, White Widow and Gorilla Glue.  

To be honest, OG Kush smelled the best and is also the shop owner’s favourite. However, I’ve been wanting to review a Gorilla Glue strain for a while and this was a fine example.   

Delivery and packaging: 10/10

As CBD Shop online have been selling CBD flower for a good number of months, their service and packaging is unbeatable.

My order arrived in two days and came extremely well-packaged. My buds were inside a roomy aluminium-lined and heat-sealed pouch. The pouch was wrapped in bubble wrap. And then that was put inside a very durable plastic envelope lined with more bubble wrap.

Overall, very discreet and extremely protective of the buds.  

Aesthetics: 9/10

Solid and slender buds. A deep green in colour with brown/orange pistols. It looks good.

Not heavily coated in trichomes but they’re visible. Especially when you break the bud apart. It’s nice and sticky on the inside, too.  

Smell: 8/10

Far from as pungent as any of the THC-rich Gorilla Glue strains i’ve tried. It has a decent earthy smell to it though. Also with sour notes.

Out of the three samples I got from CBD Shop Online, OG Kush was the best smelling, followed by this GG, and then the White Widow.

Taste (smoking vs vaping)

Smoking: 8.5/10

Very smooth smoke. And there was some good flavour. A kind of kushy, spicy taste to start with. After a while it started to taste more earthy and “hempy”.

It’s better better to smoke this strain than to vape, I think. It burned clean and was overall enjoyable.

Vaping: 8/10

This Gorilla Glue was a bit disappointing in the vape. Not much flavour came through in the first few pulls. After a while I got some sour flavours, but nothing to write home about.

Effects: 9/10

I can’t comment on its medical effects as I don’t have any medical complaints. However, this is a real relaxer and mood enhancer.

I didn’t feel tired at all after consuming this strain (like I sometimes do with CBD flower). I did feel incredibly focused and ubeat for about an hour or so, though.

This strain could be good for people with anxiety and depression, but I’m no doctor so don’t take it as medical advice.

Overall, a great daytime strain with some pleasant effects.

Price: 9/10

£8.50 for a gram, £24 for 3.5g represents a really good deal in my eyes. And shipping is only £2.10, which is very decent.

Overall: 8.5/10

A very good Italian strain with some really uplifting and calming effects. Slightly lacking in smell and flavour but the smoke is smooth and the professionalism of the company is spot on.
