For this set of reviews we checked out The Gentle Herb to see what their products & service is like. With free shipping available on orders over $180 and 2-3 days delivery time, this puts them right in line with other online shops. Our order arrived within the estimated time frame and came in a standard Canada Post bubble mailer.
Inside was a vacuum sealed bag with the products inside. Some of the product was squished due to the vacuum sealing – although having mentioned this to their staff we’ve been informed this is no longer an issue. Their staff is incredibly responsive to questions and concerns, providing you with answers promptly and respectfully. The quality of the products and our overall experience with The Gentle Herb has been very pleasant.

Look: Holy smokes does this stuff look nice. Amazing colour variation, absolutely caked in large, bulbous trichomes and dense as a rock. Bag appeal is about as nice as it gets!
Smell: The aroma is quite unique and very intoxicating. A pungent, gassy smell combines with a mix of pineapples and blackberry. When busted up a bit, the aroma of blackberries really pops out.
Taste: Super hard hitting bud that remains smooth & delightful. Taste is pungent, gassy and fruity. Very unique profile. Well worth checking out for any flavour chasers out there.
Cure / Flush: Burns evenly to a light grey to white ash. Really nice cure and flush overall.
Buzz: The Blue Viper provides a wonderful sativa heavy buzz that creeps up on you and lasts for quite some time. Great for those looking for motivation or ways to boost their creativity. Perfect day time herb!
Look: Dank looking buds with a thick layer of trichomes. Made up of dense, light green nugs with some thin pink pistils scattered throughout. This is some nice looking ganja!
Smell: Typical kush / bubba smell with a bit more emphasis on the gas. Very nice aroma to it, especially when broken up a bit.
Taste: Taste is about what you’d expect given the smell. This is a heavy hitter with strong notes of diesel, pine and earth. Definitely something worth checking out
Cure / Flush: Burns evenly to a light grey to white ash. Not a perfect flush but good enough in our opinions. Cure is excellent – nugs snap from the step with that characteristic “snap” and break apart nicely.
Buzz: Decent indica buzz with good sedative effects. Great for people suffering from sleep disorders or require pain relief for minor aches and pains.
Look: Light brown in colour with a sugar wax texture to it. Very easy to work using a dab tool, pin or paper clip.
Smell: Smell is mostly earthy with some notes of plum and grape. Decent profile overall but quite pretty mild overall.
Taste: Earth & hashish are the biggest flavours here. Smooth dabs and excellent in oil spliffs
Purge: Clean stuff overall with a good purge. No sizzling, sparking or bubblings when heated.
Buzz: Decent hybrid buzz that lasts for quite some time. Fairly heady with a decent amount of relaxation too. Recommended for mid to late day sessions. Great for those requiring minor pain relief or want to kick back at the end of a long day
Look: This rosin is super thick and sticky to the touch with the consistency of honey. Light brown to amber in colouration, it’s got a nice appeal to it.
Smell: Not too much to speak of here. Very mild aroma of hashish and earth. Not the greatest terpene profile
Taste: Mostly earthy taste with a little bit of apple and other ripe fruit. Dabs are smooth and flavourful, especially when dabbed at a lower temp.
Purge: Good stuff! No contaminants of residuals of any kind.
Buzz: Solid indica dominant buzz with a light amount of couchlock. Heavy in the eyes though – great for those suffering from insomnia or anxiety. Recommended for night time use
Look: Medium dark amber in colour, the house shatter from The Gentle Herb is decent stuff. Available in slabs at an affordable price, this is a great option for anyone looking to make larger purchases. Consistency is pull n’ snap making it easy to work with.
Smell: Typical OG Kush smell with a little bite more earthy notes than usual. Has a subtle grape / berry aroma when dabbed.
Taste: Smooth, yet expansive dabs produce a strong OG flavour with a modest aftertaste. Pungent, diesely goodness! Not the strongest terpene profile, but excellent given the price tag
Purge: No signs of contaminants or residual solvents could be seen. This is some decent budget shatter.
Buzz: Moderate indica buzz with a good amount of couchlock. Leaves you feeling completely relaxed after 1 small dab. Quite heavy in the eyes. Recommended for those suffering from chronic pain or insomnia.
