Taste of the Emerald Triangle: Harvest Box 2016

no comments

  • Terpine nerds will go nuts for this 28-gram bonanza of buds from the 2016 Emerald Triangle Harvest. Made to savor.
  • $190, Natural Cannabis Company

Imagine 28 grams of the best marijuana from the 2017 Northern California harvest. Grown on small Mendocino, Humboldt and Sonoma County farms. In a box. On your lap. For under $200.

Which may have something to do with the fact that a review of the  taken more than a month to properly explain why the Natural Cannabis Company’s Best of Harvest Box is the Emerald Report’s first Editor’s Pick.

The Deal: Think of it as a 28-course meat at the French Laundry; 28 bottles of the finest Bordeaux or a terpine-to-terroir tour of the Emerald Triangle. Thing is, this is a box to savor and explore rather than a quick toke. We spent (literally) weeks comparing grams of Pre-98 and Mendo Glue with Tangie and Purple Pineapple. For newer smokers, these flowers are an education in the range of colors, smells, trichromes and flavors. For vets, the box is a solid geography lesson.


The Critique (from Reviewer Chris Hanson): “Since each gram is individually packaged in an airtight container, this box could last you months if you are a light weekend smoker. When you do the math this is also a great deal. For  $190 you receive 28 grams, around $6.75 a gram excluding taxes. Overall  the product in the container, the containers, the idea and the price point are great.  As an Indica guy I was hoping for a few more but overall the variety was abundant.”
