Medical marijuana dispensary review: New Broadsterdam -- Herbal Alternatives in Denver
|Brain Buzz from New Broadsterdam.|
Everything is priced at the same level, though some buds clearly were more impressive than others. Like comparing the Silver Pearl, with its sweet sativa smells and sandy trichome coverage, to a dull God's Vagina that had nothing impressive to offer, including the name. What's with people naming buds after genitals?
There was also a batch of Boston Bling that had a wild, jungle aroma and golf-ball-sized Blue Widow buds worth a second look. And though I wasn't going to take it home, New Broadsterdam had a batch of Nevils haze that looked like it had been put through some sort of shrink ray; it had the teeniest-tiniest trichomes and itty-bitty, thin sugar leaves. Very undergrown for what I know of this strain, but still intriguing.
Aside from the chop trim job, the Deadhead OG buds out of the stock jar in the shop stood out the most. They had a mild earthy smell to them, but with an added hydroponic sugary fruit punch. The herb wasn't bad, but I think OGs are best done in other mediums. Unlike thick, pyramid-shaped soil/coco fiber-grown versions of this strain, the hydro-grown buds I brought home from New Broadsterdam were comparatively thin and wispy. They were still coated in trichomes, but without a lot of the waxy density. Nevertheless, when smoked and vaped, the OG flavor came out along with a fresh, piney spice. Despite a few pops and crackles here and there, and burning more on the harsh side than not, it smoked down to powdered white ash every time. Not mind-blowingly potent, but certainly strong -- and with the $30/eighth price tag (less if you're a member), it's good for the bargain hunter.
DeadHead OG from New Broadsterdam.
Overall, New Broadsterdam is more memorable for the oddities inside than the handful of headies on the shelf. But it's not a bad place for discount buds if you're saving your pennies (hopefully for a trip to the real Amsterdam someday).
