Unless it has an especially excellent texture or it’s packaged in a new and innovative way, I’ll never give raw flower a full score on convenience. It’s just inherently inconvenient to grind and use flower.
Aside from that, I found Orgrow’s gram bag and labeling to be standard and sufficient. There was a small, clear window through which I could see attractive, green buds.
It might seem like a small thing, but I always like it when these windows on grams or eighths are covered with crystally trichomes that have fallen off and attached to the inside surface. It’s a surefire sign of potency even if you know those cannabinoids were wasted.
I liked the effects of Ace of Spades more than Pineapple Chunk, which I found to be more generic. Ace of Spades, though, is endlessly fascinating since it can’t seem to decide whether it’s an indica-leaning hybrid or a hybrid-leaning sativa.
Rather than falling somewhere in the middle, Ace of Spades is endlessly tossed from one side to the other. This strain is well worth a try, and Orgrow delivers Ace of Spades with reasonable competence.
Nope, this gram of flower wasn’t more convenient than any other gram I’ve smoked over my lifetime. It didn’t grind itself, it got everywhere, and I swear I ended up losing around a third of it.
You can’t really take a gram of flower with you, and it’s a pain to manage. Aside from these inherent quibbles, however, everything else about my Orgrow Ace of Spades experience fit my expectations for convenience.
To me, the taste of terpinolene always drowns out everything else. Even though Ace of Spades is only distantly related to terpinolene-heavy Jack Herer, that strain’s iconic flavor comes through the most strongly of any of Ace of Spades’ diverse set of grandparents.
I also noted the sharp, spicy, yet fruity notes derived from this strain’s Black Cherry Soda parentage. Orgrow’s grow didn’t result in the best flavors I’ve ever tasted, but I didn’t note any awful, overpowering chlorophyll or chemical tastes.
Orgrow Ace of Spades checked all the boxes when it comes to activation time. When it comes to quick effects, there’s nothing faster than flower — except perhaps vapes.
I liked the effects of Ace of Spades. I didn’t suddenly find a new favorite strain, but this cultivar is decidedly up my valley.
To me, Ace of Spades imparted an almost rebellious sense of swagger. It seems like the perfect strain for enjoying an hour of moonlit night with a kindred spirit.
I don’t have any regret paying $10 for this gram of flower. A gram isn’t something you’d miss too much even if you lost it, so remorse over my Orgrow Ace of Spades purchase would be silly anyway.
For the price bracket, I’d say Orgrow’s packaging, trim job, and nug quality were all adequate. Don’t expect the world, and you won’t be disappointed.
Orgrow is no prize catch, but it’s an acceptable consolation prize for Eastern Washington cannabis consumers who don’t want to pay more than $10 for a gram. Ace of Spades, in my opinion, is a thoroughly enjoyable strain that Orgrow certainly did not botch in any way.
I’m just a little dubious about the integrity of Orgrow’s production processes and the technical sophistication of their setup. Based on the available info, it looks pretty bare-bones, and it seems the owner has had to deal with customers complaining about Orgrow’s concentrates being low-quality.
Ace of Spades has a “let’s pick up a bottle of Jack and hit the casino” kind of vibe to it. It’s up in the air, just like a good night out on the town.
You don’t have to be part of the party crowd to like Ace of Spades, but it’s the kind of strain a rebel boyfriend would have in his pocket as he pulls up in his Harley. If you’re not down to take a walk on the wild side, there are plenty of other strains out there that might fit your vibe while sticking to that $10 budget.
Orgrow Ace of Spades is average in potency, so the usual rules apply:
– Break it into 3-5 sections
– Roll these sections into small joints or pack them into bowls
– Smoke or vape every 2-3 hours or as needed
What else might you be wondering about this rendition of Ace of Spades from Orgrow?
Ace of Spades is usually considered to be an indica-dominant strain. Connoisseurs, however, will note aromas, flavors, and effects that clearly betray this strain’s sativa ancestry via Jack the Ripper, which in turn is a grandchild of Jack Herer.
In my experience, the effects of Ace of Spades lean more toward sativa-dominance. Maybe I just always see things on the sativa side of the fence, but if you’d told me Ace of Spades was a sativa rather than an indica, I would have believed you — before checking Leafly, at least.
Not particularly, but it’s not meant to be. Every cannabis producer has to put on a front like they grow the best connoisseur weed in the world, but you, me, and that producer’s mother all know it isn’t the case.
Orgrow Ace of Spades is a gram you don’t feel ashamed paying $10 for. Sure, the gram would probably be worth $5 in an ideal world, but I’m content whenever a dime bag simply doesn’t rub me the wrong way.
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.
