Simply Bare BC Organic Sour CKS Hash  

Grower’s notes

“Our sativa-dominant BC Organic Sour CKS, single strain hash is hand pressed through a unique process perfected over years of experimentation. We start by tumbling our living-soil and sun grown flower as soon as it is cured and we complete the process by hand cutting into an earthy brown hash. This FVOPA Organic certified hash gives off an incredible aroma that is both sour and sweet.”

Flavour profile

Back in olden times, when four out five doctors preferred Camels according to vintage ad campaigns, the big selling point was taste. There’s something retro about hash, at least on the West Coast where it was big in the ’70s, and then usurped in popularity by weed, so let’s continue to think retro for a second. Lovingly hand-pressed, Simply Bare’s BC Organic Sour CKS Hash is big on bold taste and then some, transporting you back to a time when anything stamped Moroccan instantly flew off the shelf of your grandparents’ rec-room. Get ready for wisps of sugar-dusted vanilla counterbalanced by a heady diesel-like punch.

High Test

Keeping with the theme of back in the day, Montreal in the pre-grunge late ’80s was a magical place—sleepy yet weirdly artsy, sophisticated but somehow gritty and underground-cool. If you were lucky enough to spend time there, days were for vinyl and thrift-store shopping in Mile End, nights for 3 a.m. steamed all-dressed hot dogs at the Montreal Pool Room after five hours on the dancefloor at Foufounes Electriques. The launching pad for a good time?  Where B.C. was all about bud, in Montreal it was hash—usually rolled with du Maurier tobacco and then smoked in a blunt the size of a Cohiba 50 Aniversario.

The key back then was sinking into the couch for the first 45 minutes, knowing—as the Deaner from FUBAR might say—you’d eventually be able to extricate yourself from the couch and get on with your night. Simply Bare’s BC Organic Sour CKS Hash isn’t what you want to be reaching for when you’ve got a summer term paper to finish up, when you’re rewiring the garage as a hangout space, or when you’re headed to a dream-job interview.

But if a strong and euphorically heavy, indica-like high is the goal, settle in for a while, understanding that the first stretch will be tranquilizingly full-on.  And then, after an hour or so of relentless channel-surfing in your head, it’s “Hello Pleasantville”, which is to say a mellow and chill vibe where few things are greater than cueing up and then melting into Dark Side of the Moon. Just like your Morocco-fixated grandparents in the ’70s.
