Trulieve Flower Review: Puck Yeah (Indica)
Last week, Trulieve dropped two new indica strains along with the announcement of TruCRMBL – Northern Hash Plant and Puck Yeah. Both have relatively little information about them available online, so I’ve really only had personal experience to go by when reviewing this strain.
Puck Yeah is definitely a heavier indica, with prominent body effects, much like Northern Hash Plant. The batch I got also happens to be the best overall quality flower I’ve gotten from Trulieve.
Puck Yeah (Indica)
Parent Strains: The Puck x Northern Lights
Batch/Harvest Number: FFOBTRUXNP000001 (that’s an “O” at the beginning and zeroes at the end)
22.5% Total Cannabinoids
The quality of curing has been hit or miss in recent batches of TruFlower. However, Trulieve completely knocked it out of the park with this batch of Puck Yeah. This is absolutely the stickiest flower I’ve yet to get from Florida’s legal market – so much that the contents of all 3 ceramic pods retained their shape, as you can see in the image above. The flower consists of many shades of green and yellow, with one or two specks of purple, all covered in dark amber and burnt orange pistils. This flower is also covered in trichomes, which can be seen sparkling all over and inside the bud when held to a flashlight. If Trulieve could find a way to get every single batch of every strain to be the same quality as this batch of Puck Yeah, I truly believe that they would dominate the Florida flower market. This cure was incredible; hopefully it is a sign of things to come as the market expands.
Appearance Rating: 4.50/5.00
Puck Yeah has a very heavy, musky, sour cannabis smell that reminds me a bit of another indica strain I recently picked up from Trulieve: Crescendo. This is a very pungent and “loud” flower that will smell up your entire living space if you leave the jar open.
When vaporized, some of the more familiar citrusy cannabis terpenes are more notable – not so much when smelling the bud in the jar. The most dominant taste would have to be the musky, dank cannabis taste – followed by the citrus notes. Puck Yeah is a strong strain that tastes really good when vaporized.
Smell/Taste Rating: 3.90/5.00
Where Northern Hash Plant immediately hit my body with heavy indica effects, Puck Yeah is more of a subtle “creeper”. At first, the effects are more cerebral and relaxed, probably for about the first 30-45 minutes after medicating. After that point, the body effects became much more prominent, and I became gradually more and more sleepy. In high doses, Puck Yeah is a great choice for insomnia. It’s a bit too heavy for daytime use in my opinion; this is strictly a strain I will use for late night relaxation and sleep. Overall, I’d say this is one of the most heavy indica flower strains I’ve tried, though I think Northern Hash Plant is a bit more of a “pure” indica with its effects.
I definitely noticed the higher THC content on this strain. When smoked, it only took one hit to start feeling the effects.
Possibly good for treating:
- Moderate aches and pains
- Moderate nausea/gastrointestinal issues
- General Relaxation
- Insomnia (especially in higher doses)
I’m definitely no medical doctor, so please take the preceding conditions only as my own personal observations from using this strain and having experience with a multitude of different cannabis strains. Every body is different, and every body reacts different to various medications.
Effects Rating: 3.80/5.00
Overall Rating: 4.07/5.00
Overall, I would best describe Puck Yeah as “an excellent strain for evening and nighttime medication”.
Puck Yeah and Northern Hash Plant are definitely two of the heaviest indica strains I’ve gotten in the Florida medical cannabis program. Though I wish the price would come down – $55 an eighth is way too steep – Trulieve absolutely knocked it out of the park with growing and curing this strain. Hopefully it will come back around in the future: I would definitely recommend this product based on the quality of the grow alone. Hope the next batch is consistent (or better)!
