Episode 14 Review of Sunnabis Farms GG#4
GG4 Review :
6.2 / 6.6 / 6.8
Overall Score: 6.5 / 10.0
Welcome to the Bluegrass Podcast and our first review of a flower, you may be wondering, how can you review a bud without video, well let’s get into that and our first session with Small Farm, Sunnabis Farms’ GG4 from Humboldt County. A classic, but you might get something different than what you were expecting from Sunnabis.
Thanks for stopping by, and let’s spark it up. *Wrapper Crinkle, and Match Burn*
We’re opening up out of a plastic bag on two of these, sealed tight at the top.
GG4 Appearance and Tactile Sensations: 8.4 / 7.3 / 8.0
Sticky Icky, Starting to dry out though but I blame the bag. As we break open the bud, we’re getting a definite freshness on the tactile feel. When we press the outside we’re getting a slight crunch, but still a good resistance without being brittle and it’s coming off on our fingers so we’re happy to see that. For me, sticky icky is the best. I want to feel it. Also loose enough to give the bud proper ability to develop.
GG4 Aroma: 5.9 / 5.3 / 5.7
Definitely a complex example of gorilla glue. Not a straightforward fuel like you would expect with the classic. Pine turpentine sets off a first reaction of fuel ⛽, Vetiver spice and richness deepens the effect, and finishes with a floral sweetness that replaces the Vetiver and is accentuated by the pine fuel base.
Pine-Fuel, Vettifer Spice, and a nice floral sweetness underneath.
GG4 Flavor, Aroma, and Body of Smoke Itself: 4.2 / 7.2 / 6.9
Light Terpentine Smoke Taste, Spicy nose along with the pine in the smoke, but smooth.
Pinesol, Vettifer, Hint of Black Pepper and Cedar. Not an exceptionally thick smoke, but pretty flavorful and complex at the same time. The flavor comes to you as it were, you don’t have to search for it. The floral notes really help separate this flower from the rest of the pack too with its floral component allowing for a unique eucalyptus, mint, and honeycomb, with a pop of cayenne pepper at the end. Especially when exhaling through the nose and mouth.
The smoke is also cool on the throat, and didn’t provoke a significant amount of coughing even getting deeper into the joint.
(Shout out to @jamminburner on instagram who turned me on to that note) I also get a heavy turpentine, pine scent that comes with GG4.
GG4 Experience: 8.0 / 9.0 / 8.3
Nice creative high but more like a brainstorming session with good creative collaborators. Not for blasting through a project. Relaxed in the body with a pleasant numbness. Aware of joints. Nice body buzz and feedback from nerves.
Overall, a nice physical relaxation without a couchlock effect that puts you down or deadens the limbs. More like awareness of the body, and pain relieving effect. Relaxing to a certain degree in the muscles, but more intensely being able to feel things at the end of your nerves. Very good possibly for a good post workout smoke at the end of the day.
A unique example of GG4 if you’re looking for a classic with a twist. What you can look for in it is definitely not your typical GG4, but if you’re looking for something to spice up your usual buy of GG4 or a heavy body fuel, and want something that will definitely make you take a second hit, this is it.
If you’d like to pick some up you can find dispensaries at https://sunnabis.com, or if you’d like to catch Wendy in person she’s working to organize the Regenerative Agriculture Conferences, that will have dates starting next week in Humboldt January 28th, and visiting a variety of places including michigan, and boston, so if you’d like to learn more about her bud, that’ll be coming up with some special guests too.
Now, after this review you might be asking, How do we do our reviews?
Firstly, we do three reviews. Then we average out those scores, making sure that we have a more even and consistent scoring for what we’ve smoked. While one session may give you a one off experience, flavor, or just simply a bad bud. Three gives a little more consistency, especially if we’re receiving consistent scores every time.
We use the Ganjier, SAP, covering varying degrees of qualities around appearance, aroma of the raw flower or hash, quality of the smoke itself, and of course the experience we have with the flower. We also try to look for sungrown, and if possible living soil grown cannabis. We’re after the best terpene profiles, the best cannabinoids, and the best bud, and we want it in the way that most aligns with our regenerative goals as well, growing the best cannabis in the best way possible.
We also try to look at what makes this bud unique, different, or excellent. Oftentimes the overall score may be low, but with an exceptional flavor and experience, a flower can still be an incredible smoke in a variety of ways, and still deserve attention.
We also leave the data online but still publish for this reason. We want you to check out the testing levels if you’d like for your strain journal or reference point. But testing levels can also bias people against a bud before they’ve tried it. For example, THC level: I’ve had flower that tested at 15% thc, that was stronger than anything I’ve smoked at 30% thc. Really, it’s about the experience, rather than the test results. While accurate, they can still lie

You might think that you need photos but honestly, our eyes often betray us when it comes to weed. While we can definitely get some ideas about the processing or the care that’s been taken with the bud physically, the smell of the bud, the feel of the smoke, and the experience that we receive from it are the most important aspects for us. Like we said though, all pictures are available on our website or social media and are posted on the episode date.
If you’d like to shout out and give recommendations of some great flower you’re tasting, let us know! We always love suggestions on incredible new bud! You can get in touch through any of those social accounts, or directly on our website.
Thank you for listening to this review of GG4, and we hope you’ve had a relaxing, revitalizing, flavorful experience today, and enjoyed smoking along with us.
