Hey pancakenap here, reviewing Purple Farm Genetics Club 41. I was excited to open this one because I could feel the chunky bud inside, and the package looked very rotund.
I think I bought this because it had good pictures. I have no prior experience with the brand, and I am not sure if they have a social media reputation, but I’m not aware of it if they do. In the Mendo store, they're pretty well-priced and high-quality. That’s why I picked it up.
Club 41 is bred by Tsunami Seeds, it's a cross of Gelato 41 and Animal Tsunami. The Animal Tsunami is Seed Junky's Animal Face with something called Caramel Tsunami, and I'd guess based on the name Animal Tsunami is also by Tsunami Seeds.

Opening the package is very impressive, a large bud of great density plopped out with two smaller buds beside it.
The initial olfaction wasn’t too aggressive but was present. Character was available in low amounts. I would call it herbal and earthy, but not much else.
Grinding it unleashes some creamy earths that present behind a thin vinyl veneer, and warm ginger. Character seems to be devoid of any aggressive elements, which makes this feel very inviting. Projection is adequate, but it’s not loud; it doesn’t reach out to get you.
The vinyl notes taste akin to aggressive rubber and take center stage on the palate in a somewhat aggravating fashion. The mid-range of the profile is a dry, sulphurous tobacco note that translates towards chocolate as the profile transitions to its bottom-end earths. I would liken the character closer to a Jager than I would the Gelato 41 that was named after.
Character is complex in atypical manner, it's respectable but not an arrangement that I would view as likeable. With use in the vaporizer, it dries down into a medley of earths. Projection and longevity are adequate, but again, it’s not a composition that I think most would like.
I enjoyed Club 41. Aroma-wise, it does what it does, and it does it well. You may not like it, but it sure is a show. The tastes weren’t so outlandish that it came off as something unique or different, but it was damn close, and for the price it was available at, I’m not sure why I wouldn’t rebuy over something available around the $20 mark from the recreational market. For the increase in quality, it was well worth the small increase in price.
I purchased this product on November 27, 2023, and the packaging date was August 2, 2023. This means it spent approximately 117 days in the package, which is about 94.5% more than the average we observe in the medical market, typically around 60.17 days.
The cannabinoid content is indicated as 28% THC and 0.0% CBD. This is 33.0% higher than the average we've observed during the course of these reviews, which typically hovers around 21.1% THC combined with CBD.
According to the CannStandard data, the average price for a 3.5g package of cannabis in Canada's recreational market is $35.02 or $9.72 per gram.
I paid about $26 to get this product from Mendo Market, which is a fantastic deal for the quality received.

No Market Data For This SKU
As mentioned previously, I sourced this from Mendo Cannabis, a medical provider. We track data on the recreational side but I cannot find this specific product.
One interesting thing to note are the flavour classifications or aroma categories used on PurpleFarm's website.
Interestingly, I can find some PurpleFarm offerings listed under these names (Hazes + Jacks for example), as well as strain specific names (Sour Glue for example), but I haven't found Club 41 as of yet.
Will update this post if I find any.
