I’m being generous with the price. Yes, it’s low, but that’s not necessarily a good thing. If you’re sweating an extra $4 at the checkout line of a dispensary, chances are you need to settle your priorities before using cannabis.
A $10 price tag on a pre-roll 2-pack provides a sense of security even if the weed inside is just as bad. And, the weed in my From the Soil Wonka Bar pre-rolls was pretty gritty, man.
I didn’t like the flavor or effects of Wonka Bar, and the activation also seemed pretty wimpy. Take your 3.8 out of 5 or leave it, From the Soil — I’ve already left your brand behind.
I’ve gotten pretty accustomed to these mini-M&M joint containers now. From the Soil’s wasn’t any different except the particularly wacky graphics on the cover. What does an Uma-Thurman-from-Pulp-Fiction-esque woman smoking a joint have to do with Willy Wonka?
Also, what’s the point of that text in quotes? “INDICA is amazing at the end of my day.” So, “Wonka Bar” is just “INDICA?” Nothing special about it? Whatever, moving on.
The state-required labeling sticker was fine, and the package opened okay. The pre-rolls inside didn’t smell so great, however, and clear to see through the white rice paper were some of the saddest joint insides I’ve ever witnessed.
It wasn’t quite the oregano your brother’s jerky friend sold you in eighth grade. But, it was reminiscent enough of fake weed to make you wonder what’s going on at From the Soil.
I could tell from the aroma of my Wonka Bar pre-rolls that I wasn’t going to like the flavor either. Trim contains more chlorophyll and less oils than buds, so it’s harder to cure and smells and tastes worse.
Sure enough, the texture of the smoke I inhaled was harsh, and the flavor was equally rough. I used to grow cannabis back in the day, and yes, in times of desperation, I would roll up and smoke my trim.
Smoking From the Soil Wonka Bar was just like that. It’s an experience I thought I’d left behind, and I’m perfectly eager to rebury it in the past.
Apparently, these joints contain 21% THC. I guess I buy it, but in that case, it must be true what certain scientists think about terpenes — they massively improve THC effectiveness and augment this cannabinoid’s effects.
If it’s true that my smokes consisted of more than 1/5 THC, then lack of terpenes due to poor production is the only conceivable explanation of my sub-optimal experience with Wonka Bar. The effects crept on slowly, and they slunk away just as unremarkably as they came.
I guess I just smoked an indica. It was hard to tell — probably because terpenes make all the difference between sativa and indica strains to begin with.
In any case, the nondescript effects of From the Soil Wonka Bar were at least short-lived. After around an hour had passed, I was fully sober again and ready to clean my cannabinoid palate with a better product from another brand.
Marketing your pre-rolls at $6 per gram is a huge red flag. By upping the price a couple of bucks, you improve your margins substantially while also conveying competence and a competitive attitude.
Reflect on your mindset toward money if the difference between a $6 and $10 pre-roll 2-pack seems so large you’d be willing to eat the quality difference.
I think I’ve figured it out. From the Soil, like many cannabis producers, thinks it can take its trim and biomass, roll it in the cheapest papers available, stick a bleached crutch on the end, and make a killing on what’s essentially a waste material.
I’m not buying it, guys. Well, I did, but I won’t again. Pre-rolls are an art form — not an outlet for trash. In a way, it’s kind of nice that you made the price so low, but I’m not obligated to say your joint is good just because you wined-and-dined me with a rock-bottom price tag.
These are pre-rolls that should never have been. It’s not that they’re horribly bad, it’s just that they’re waste — waste that should have been composted or disposed of responsibly, not ported into consumer products targeted at the lowest strata of society.
I wouldn’t recommend these pre-rolls, so I don’t technically have a best dosage. Since it’s a gram of trim divided into two rice-paper joints, however, I’d say you should split this gram 2-pack into two sessions for even division of cannabinoids.
What else can we tell you about Wonka Bar or From the Soil?
Wonka Bar is a strong indica strain that’s great for relaxing or getting ready for sleep. It’s not appropriate for daytime activities due to its pure indica ancestry.
In my experience, no. Hailing all the way from Elma, WA (near Olympia), From the Soil deserves some kudos for gaining distribution that stretches clear out to the easternmost suburb of Spokane.
Still, $6 grams don’t really rub me the right way, and my hands-on experience with From the Soil’s Wonka Bar pre-rolls leads me to think this WA cannabis producer has a lot of room for improvement.
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.
