Review: Tweed Bakerstreet from Relm Cannabis Co.

When faced with a debate between two employees at Relm Cannabis Co. over which indica strain was the best, they ultimately settled on Bakerstreet, Tweed’s version of Hindu Kush. But is it really worth the $12 price tag?

In a recent trip to Burlington, Ontario, I picked up a gram of Bakerstreet by Tweed in order to compare the prices and quality of Ontario’s cannabis products to those in Quebec. It’s worth noting that Tweed made history as the first store to sell legal recreational cannabis in Canada, so there may be high expectations for their products.

Tweed Bakerstreet Review

Tweed, a subsidiary of Canopy Growth Corporation (CGC), is a licensed cannabis producer and the largest cannabis company in the world based on the value of its shares. But does being a bigger company necessarily mean better cannabis? Let’s find out in this review of Tweed Bakerstreet.

First Impressions of Tweed Bakerstreet

Upon first inspection, Tweed’s Bakerstreet looked promising. The gram came in a small, heavy “push-screw-top” container, and the aroma had hints of dankness, which is always a good sign. The buds themselves were dark, dense, and slightly dry, but still beautiful. In fact, they were some of the best-looking buds I’ve bought from a legal dispensary, surpassing the quality of another strain I picked up from Relm called Lola Montes.

Sight and Smell

Up close, the buds shimmered with trichomes and had an earthy yet sweet smell with a strong dankness. There were also hints of fruit and lavender, but the dryness of the weed somewhat dulled the aroma. Breaking up the buds, which is often disappointing with LP (licensed producer) cannabis due to dryness, revealed slightly powdery consistency and smaller size than expected.

Smoke and Taste

Smoking Tweed Bakerstreet was a pleasant experience. Despite its dryness, it wasn’t overly harsh or quick to burn. However, it lacked a distinct taste, only offering a slightly earthy and “burny” flavor. Again, the dryness seemed to affect the overall flavor profile, leaving a lingering burny aftertaste.

The Effects of Tweed Bakerstreet

While Tweed Bakerstreet is advertised as having a THC content of 20-25%, the effects were not as potent as expected. Previous experiences with Hindu Kush, which Bakerstreet is based on, resulted in a stronger high. However, it did stimulate a strong appetite, so it may be beneficial for individuals who struggle with eating.

To Roll This Up

While Tweed Bakerstreet is marketed as a heavy-hitting strain, it didn’t quite live up to that expectation. It offers an enjoyable experience but falls short of being a total knockout. Furthermore, in Ontario, where the strain costs $12 per gram, it may not be the best value for the price. However, if purchased in Montreal at $11 per gram, it may be a slightly more appealing option.

Thank you for reading this review of Tweed Bakerstreet! Have you tried it? What are your thoughts?


Is Tweed Bakerstreet worth the price?

While the quality of Tweed Bakerstreet is commendable, its effectiveness as a heavy-hitting strain may leave some consumers wanting more. The $12 price tag in Ontario may not be justified for some individuals.

What are the effects of Tweed Bakerstreet?

Tweed Bakerstreet offers a medium potency high rather than the strong effects expected from a heavy indica. However, it does stimulate appetite and may be useful for individuals with eating difficulties.

How does Tweed Bakerstreet compare to Hindu Kush?

Although Tweed Bakerstreet is based on Hindu Kush, its effects are less potent. Previous experiences with Hindu Kush may not necessarily reflect the intensity of Bakerstreet’s high.
