Brainstorm Strain by Lume Cannabis

written by Samuel Popejoy

Brainstorm, a cross of Haze and Northern Lights #5, is one of Lume’s nicer cultivars. As usual, though, these buds from one of Michigan’s biggest cannabis producer were overdried and mangled, resulting in a sub-par experience that could have been so much more.

Highlights

At first glance, these were beautiful buds that suffered from a rough trim. The sugar leaves were deep purple, and there was moderate trichome coverage. There were mature bracts with large amber pistils, but the buds were overdried, resulting in a sandy texture when ground.

  • 18.87% THC / 0% CBD
  • Pretty purplish buds
  • Reasonable trichome coverage
  • Bad trim job
  • Extremely overdried texture
  • Powdery when ground

Price

Lume charges some of the lowest prices for weed you can find in the entire Midwest. All the same, this is budget weed to the extreme—these buds were treated so carelessly it almost seems the people who handled them have something against cannabis.

  • Price: $8
  • Value: 5/5

Activation & Duration

The effects of this strain were immediate—they kicked in within less than 5 minutes. There was a short duration of effects, though, that only lasted about 30 minutes. Overall, this weed did not offer an impressive experience or taste.

  • Activation time: 5 minutes
  • Effects lasted for: 30 minutes

Convenience

Every gram and eighth from Lume comes in the same packaging. We appreciate the extra step of the nitrogen seal, but the clear plastic packaging allows UV degradation. It’s also hard to reseal the package once open, though this isn’t usually isn’t a major concern for small cannabis quantities like a gram.

  • Sold in: Lume cannabis stores
  • Packaging: 3/5

Flavor & Aroma

The Lume brand website indicates that the dominant terpene in this strain is myrcene. Upon opening our container of Lume Brainstorm, however, there was no real detectable odor other than dried flower. This weed had the flavor profile of tobacco.

  • Flavor: 1/5

Best Dosage

We smoked our gram of Lume Brainstorm in a glass pipe over two 0.5g sessions. Splitting a gram of weed into 2-3 sessions is usually ideal.

Target Audience + FAQs

Brainstorm is a powerful sativa that’s targeted at smokers who like heady highs or using THC before exercise. Lume’s rendition of Brainstorm, however, is only fit for stoners who don’t know much about the weed they’re smoking.

1. Is Brainstorm the same as Brainstorm Haze?

No, the two strains referred to as “Brainstorm” and “Brainstorm Haze” are different. Brainstorm is a very rare strain usually only found in obscure European seedbanks. Brainstorm Haze is the more common cultivar, and it’s a cross between Stargazer and a Thai landrace strain while Brainstorm is descended from Northern Lights #5 and Haze.

2. What is the strongest sativa strain in the world?

It’s unknown which sativa strain is the strongest—partially because we aren’t exactly sure what makes weed strong in the first place. Plus, the cannabinoid potency of a strain depends just as much on how you grow it as its genetics, leading to variations in strength even among cannabis plants with the exact same genetic lineage.

3. Is Lume medical or recreational?

Lume cannabis stores in Michigan are open to all adults 21 years of age or older as well as medical cannabis patients who are at least 18. Recreational customers simply show their state-issued ID at the door while medical patients must provide their medical cannabis authorization.
