Daily Special El Chemino

Daily Special El Chemino

Hey thanks for joining me, we're doing Daily Special's El Chemino. This was produced by Aurora.


El Chemino’s appearance is not particularly impressive. The buds are smaller in size with a brownish-yellow hue. While they are not attractive, they are not horrifying either. Given the price point, the visuals are underwhelming, making the overall presentation somewhat lackluster.

Aroma and Flavour

El Chemino features a melonic flavour, leaning closer to fruit than chemical, but with a noticeable skunky undertone. The flavour is clean and well-defined, offering a good distribution of notes. While it doesn’t have an overwhelming or "loud" flavour, it provides a pleasant and balanced taste experience with a decent amount of complexity.


I find myself wavering on this strain. Sometimes, I find the taste to be lacking, but other times, I am pleasantly surprised by its quality, especially considering the low price. The structure of the $65 half-ounce deal, which allows for two different flavours for about $130, is appealing. However, when comparing this to other brands like Next Friday and Carmel, which are available at a similar price point, El Chemino falls short. Despite this, there is potential here, and I have enjoyed this product overall.

El Chemino by Daily Special offers a balanced and clean melonic flavour with a skunky undertone, but its visual appeal is lacking. The flavour is enjoyable for its price, though it may not consistently impress. Worth a try if you're bored but I wouldn't recommend it to you otherwise.
