When it comes to seeking out a potent high, it is often concentrates like BHO that come to mind. Yet, enterprising minds of the cannabis world are not content to leave it there, oh no. There is a product not often seen, but talked about in hushed whispers, that offers a similar strength: cannabis caviar. Where available, it has proven to be extremely popular and even considered a luxury item (hence the name). On average, it sells for €80-100 per gram, overshadowing even the best quality bud in terms of price.
So what is it? Basically, it is top-shelf bud, dipped or stained with hash oil, resulting in a gooey, sticky, potent mess. It is a combination that creates an average potency of 50%+ THC, which for many, is pretty hard-hitting – it is not for the faint of heart. Understandably, it is often referred to as a “one-hit quitter”.
The advantage of this gunky bud over normal concentrates, is that it extremely slow burning, making it ideal for medical cannabis users who want a huge hit if THC over a long period of time. The drawback? It is pretty rough going - depending on the components used, it can be quite a harsh experience.
Understandably, this is likely to put a lot of people off, especially the connoisseurs who appreciate fine flavour and smooth experience as much as they do strength. If you ask us, it seems it has quite a selective appeal: mainly for medical users seeking a high potency with little regard for much else, or for those wanting to try something unusual.
A fine example of cannabis caviar is called Kurupt's Moonrock. It is a brand of cannabis caviar that takes things to the next level by going one step further than many others. They take some Girl Scout Cookies, dip it in hash oil and the roll it around in kief, adding another layer of potency to the mix. It is a brand very popular with some of the more famous tokers of the US, and is often seen in the hands of Snoop Dogg.
While we doubt you are going to see cannabis caviar anytime soon in the coffee shops of Amsterdam, the popularity of this intense product is slowly growing. Things are a little trickier here in Europe, with cannabis being largely outlawed and all, but with things going the way they are, it may not be too long before we start seeing it pop up here too.
