Kolab Indica Pen
Producer: Kolab Project
Labeled as: 85% THC (850mg/g) and 0% CBD
Format: 0.3g Vape Pen (single use)
Rated 1 (low score) to 5 (high score)
Packaging/Weight: I will rate this a 3. This vape pen came in a small black cardboard box, with the required warning labels and government stamps. This package was hard to open, due to it being child-proof. The pen worked without difficulty and is meant to be disposable.
Look: I’m rating this category a 4.5. The concentrate in the cartridge is a light yellow colour and is very clear, with no foreign or unwanted particles seen. I also really like the pen itself, it is compact and has a great feel in the hand. It also stands up nicely on flat surfaces and comes with a cap for the mouthpiece, which are both great features.
Smell: No rating, there is no odour detected as it is difficult to smell the concentrate in the cartridge. However, the main terpenes listed in this product include beta-caryophyllene, myrcene and alpha-pinene.
Taste: I’ll rate this a 5 plus! This concentrate had the most enjoyable flavour of all the vape pens I’ve tried so far. The product description says this strain provides an initial fresh, leafy flavour with some citrus and finishes with a woody, smooth vanilla sweetness. To me, it was reminiscent of my favourite bergamot soap.
Effects: I will give this a 4. This particular product is an indica-dominant strain and has a high THC level like a lot of concentrates do. For me, this combination provided an intensely calming feeling which lasted a short time. Using the pen provided more consistent results than other methods, making the experience enjoyable and predictable (individual results will vary).
Comments: This Kolab cartridge contains cannabis distillate, made using a Blackberry Cream variety and botanical terpenes. The unit comes with a 510 thread lithium-ion rechargeable battery and can be recharged if needed, using a standard USB charger. These vapes are rigorously tested, have no vitamin E acetate and use leak-resistant technology. The pen is easy to use and is activated by simply inhaling. However, I did experience some clogging with this unit, which can be common with vape pens. I would happily purchase this again for the overall quality and flavour.
