Taking all of the relevant factors into account, we decided to award the Canndescent Charge Pre-Roll 6-Pack a passing grade of 4 out of 5. While these pre-rolls certainly weren’t terrible, they also didn’t live up to the hype this brand has generated with high-placement magazine ads and other forms of clever marketing. To summarize our assessment, we wouldn’t say that the Canndescent Charge Pre-Roll 6-Pack is a waste of money, but we also know that there are far better pre-roll packs out there.
Our Canndescent Charge Pre-Roll 6-Pack had a relatively nondescript flavor. Since Canndescent doesn’t reveal which exact strains go into its sativa pre-rolls, it’s hard to establish a baseline of what these pre-rolls are supposed to taste like.
Canndescent grows its cannabis indoors, so we expected our pre-rolls to be slightly more flavorful than they were. In the end, the primary flavors we noted were pine and earth. Notably absent were the notes of citrus that are usually present in sativa-dominant strains.
The aroma of our Canndescent Charge Pre-Roll 6-Pack, on the other hand, was magnificent. Floral and heady, we truly enjoyed the way our pre-rolls smelled as soon as we removed them from their hermetically sealed packaging. We just wish these pre-rolls had been as flavorful as they were aromatic.
As is almost always the case with inhaled THC, we noted the effects of our Canndescent Charge Pre-Rolls almost instantly. The full effects of these pre-rolls set in within around five minutes, and they lasted close to an hour. As is to be expected from sativa-dominant THC flower, our Canndescent Charge Pre-Rolls provided a burst of energy that incentivized us to get outside and be active.
We weren’t able to enjoy the full effects of our Canndescent Charge Pre-Roll 6-Pack, however, because the last 30% of every joint failed to burn. That’s right: Everything went reasonably well until the ember reached the last ⅓ of the joint, at which point it invariably went out.
This was unexpected and highly disappointing. For a $50 pack of six 0.5g joints, we expected better performance than this. From the first joint we lit, we noticed canoeing and other signs of uneven burn, but we didn’t expect the last 30% of every joint to be entirely unusable.
Most likely due to not being able to smoke the entire joint, the effects of our Canndescent Charge Pre-Roll 6-Pack weren’t as profound as we were expecting. While we certainly enjoyed a rush of sativa energy, it wasn’t as strong as the effects we’ve experienced with other sativa buds.
Here’s a summary of our experience with the Canndescent Charge Pre-Roll 6-Pack:
Headed by CEO Adrian Sedlin, Canndescent is based in Desert Hot Springs, California. This brand operates an 11,000 square foot indoor cultivation facility, and since its founding, Canndescent has courted mainstream media attention as its primary method of raising brand awareness.
Having been featured in LA Weekly, The LA Time, CNBC, Vogue, and other publications, Canndescent has positioned itself as a lifestyle-boosting cannabis brand that focuses more on the effects that THC can provide rather than specific strains.
In fact, Canndescent makes it hard to find out which strains it cultivates. While we understand the approachable aesthetic that Canndescent is going for here, eliminating the strain from the equation also makes it hard to learn which terpenes are present in a product.
Here’s what we found most interesting about the Canndescent Charge Pre-Roll 6-Pack:
The Canndescent Charge Pre-Roll 6-Pack is ideal for casual cannabis users who are more interested in the effects this plant can provide than the specific strains in which Cannabis sativa is offered. Connoisseurs will be disappointed by the lack of detailed product information and the poor performance of these pre-rolls.
If we had been able to smoke an entire 0.5g joint without it fizzling out, we would have said that one Canndescent Charge pre-roll would be a perfect dose. As it stands, however, you might need to smoke two pre-rolls to enjoy the desired effects.
Before the committee gets their hands on the product and formally rates it, the BestDosage team scrapes the product packaging, scours the internet, and occasionally calls the brand directly to hunt down the most accurate information about each product.
