Overall Rating: 8.9/10

Initial Thoughts

The first thing that I noticed about these Opals and Banonoze buds was the sticky residue they left all over my fingers. The terps come in at over 4% which makes this strain, cultivated by Curio Wellness, one of the most sought out options at Maryland recreational marijuana dispensary, Waave. After we burned a couple joints of it the spirit of Raffi must have overtaken us because we all spontaneously started singing, "I like to toke, toke, toke, Opals and Banonoze". 🍎🍌😂

Appearance

These buds look super exotic and have a fluffy, spongy structure to them. The greens and purples are darker in shade and contrast with the frosty white trichomes.


Status

Fresh, but starting to cure.

Lineage

The Opals and Banonoze strain is a phenotype of Apples and Bananas, which is a four-way cross of Platinum Cookies, Granddaddy Purple, Blue Power and Gelatti that runs balanced at 50/50 on the indica/sativa spectrum.


Effects

Opals and Banonoze immediately put me in a spacey headspace after just a few hits and I succumbed to its intensely stoney high. However, as the initial rush dissipated, I experienced a surprising shift towards enhanced focus, particularly while multitasking various activities. It offered a fascinating contrast of effects, from spaciness to heightened productivity, making it a truly intriguing experience. Versatile enough for nearly any time of day.

Conclusion

This reminds me of a proper Zkittles cut, since its appearance is so funky and its aroma is, similarly, fruit-forward. The high potency and terpene levels helped it exceeded my expectations in aroma, flavor, and effects and I can’t wait to go back for more in the near future. In the meantime we'll probably just keep on passing it around, burning it down, and singing silly songs about fruit.


To pick up some Opals and Banonoze for your own stash head to Waave Dispensary ASAP and be sure to mention that Toker’s Guide sent you! (PS: Don’t forget to show the budtender there the flier from our newsletter to get your free smoking kit!)
