This is the third volume of The Tribute To Terpenes cognitive and analytical test study being conducted by Green Leaf Labs and The Daily Leaf.  For those who did not get a chance to read through the first testing, you can find it here. Our collaboration unites the subjective blind “testing” of cannabis combined with scientific analysis.

With this release we decided to incorporate pictures of each strain. This way viewers can also identify with how a strain looks in comparison to its’ taste.  This 3rd batch had a lot of great flower, making it very hard to determine which hit home the best with our pallets.


The subjective “test” categories to be judged upon will be the following:

1) Aroma: Enjoyment of smell, “dankness”, smell without squeezing flower, and smell after squeezing flower, overall aroma high and low notes.

2) Taste: Flavor in relation to smell, inhale flavor, exhale flavor, aftertaste, high notes, low notes.

3) Cure: Smoke-ability of the strain, smoothness, overall quality of cure job.

4) Appearance: Trim job, crystallization.

Each category will be weighed equally. The grading scale will be 0-10, with 10 being the highest. All four categories will be added together for the overall results. After judging is complete, The Daily Leaf will notify Green Leaf Lab of the samples that had the highest markings and the most interesting terpene profiles. Green Leaf Lab will release the test results, including customer name, strain name, terpene analysis and cannabinoid profile.
