Meh. It wasn’t bad, but I also wasn’t impressed. It doesn’t help that Frost Factory rubs me the wrong way as a brand.
As a collab between Phat Panda and Grow Op Farms, Frost Factory takes two mediocre cannabis producers and puts them together into… one mediocre cannabis producer. I’ve always steered away from Phat Panda vapes since they’re in the there’s-something-wrong-here low-low price category, and now I know why I’ve always gotten that stanky vibe.
Don’t get me wrong — Phat Panda and Frost Factory aren’t terrible or I would have given Lemon Sugar Koosh a much lower score. I just leave a lot of room to be impressed, and most of that room remains depressingly vacant after trying this strain.
I don’t like handling and grinding flower. That’s why I’m a vape or pre-roll man.
So, say goodbye to one point in convenience, Frost Factory Lemon Sour Koosh 1g. Oh, and I’ll take another for that ridiculous label that spans almost all the way around both the jar and lid without any perforation.
With my Sour Blue Face gram, I tried tearing the label off. This time, I used brute strength to twist the cap off — sticker and all.
This is a heavy-duty sticker, guys. Don’t ask your wives to twist off this lid. Ladies, use a knife, scissors, or a nail to cut through the label along the line separating lid from jar. Then, pressing down, disengaging the child-proof lid, and revealing the (maybe slightly disappointing) buds within will be a piece of cake.
I’m a big fan of buying cannabis products — whatever they are — from Cannabis & Glass since their two Spokane-Valley-area locations both offer curbside pickup. In these days when half the world will glare at you for wearing a mask and the other half will glare at you if you don’t, I’d just as rather not step inside retail establishments whenever I can help it.
Lemon Sugar Koosh has a powerful lemon aroma that’s followed up by surprisingly musky undercurrents. I’m not sure how much this muskiness is attributable to inherent properties of Lemon Sugar Kush or just a bad cure job.
Since they were so dry, the aroma of my Lemon Sugar Koosh buds didn’t increase significantly in potency when I broke up a nug. I continued to only be able to smell lemon, citrus, and the faint hints of what might be genuine kush ancestry.
Even when vaporized, my Frost Factory Lemon Sugar Koosh flower tasted relatively harsh and bitter. I think they would have tasted a lot better if they weren’t so dry.
Nope, nothing about Frost Factory Lemon Sugar Koosh led to reduced activation time. Within a minute or so, a pleasant indica high began coursing through my body, and I settled in for an all-around enjoyable (if somewhat mild) THC flower experience.
Lemon flavoring is often thought of as a sativa trait, but limonene is also present in plenty of indica strains. Lemon Sugar Koosh is a perfect example of this effect in action — this kush-derived strain is lemony like a sativa, but it hits hard with the couch-lock and sedative vibes.
I’m not sure where Frost Factory derives its justification for padding its grams by a whole $2-$3. I’d say this gram is worth around $10 or $11, not $13.
After trying two products, I’m not thrilled about this crossing between Phat Panda and the obscure Spokane-area Grow Op Farms. Lemon Sugar Koosh was marginally better than Sour Blue Face, but that’s not saying much.
Grown more carefully and packaged slightly moister, these buds might have been passable. Something tells me Frost Factory is cutting corners though.
Yeah! Indica! Masculinity!
That’s the vibe I get from Frost Factory Lemon Sugar Koosh. I’m not against any of these things, but I’m not sure what epic synthwave vibes have to do with the adult enterprise of consuming cannabis.
Smoke your gram in four parts, and enjoy it throughout a single day or over the course of two evenings.
Anything else you’d like to know about Lemon Sugar Koosh?
I’d say Lemon Sugar Koosh is better than Sour Blue Face — but only marginally, and it’s only saved by its slightly superior flavor. Altogether, I don’t think Frost Factory is a good cannabis producer. In the same price range, you can find plenty of grams that taste, look, and feel better.
To be honest, I’m not sure. According to Phat Panda’s twitter account, Lemon Sugar Koosh is a cross of Lemon Larry OG and Sugar Kush, but I couldn’t find much more information about this strain on the internet.
Lemon Sugar Kush (without the “oo”) is obscure but slightly more well-known than its Koosh cousin. The effects, flavor, and aroma of these two strains are identical based on product reviews, leading me to wonder if there is any real difference.
I’d advise against it. This Frost Factory gram doesn’t offer anything other grams don’t, and the loud packaging and bitter flavor of Lemon Sugar Koosh are indicative of corner-cutting and bottom-tier processes.
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.
