sugarbud Mule Fuel

sugarbud Mule Fuel

A unique flavour profile is the centrepiece of sugarbud’s rendition of Thug Pug’s Mule Fuel, which brings good quality at a price about 10% over the average I’ve paid for a 3.5g package.

Hey pancakenap here, doing a version of Thug Pug’s Mule Fuel, grown by sugarbud.

Purchase Setup

My fiancee is involved with a secret shopping organization and a request for someone to shop Spirit Leaf came up one day. So she was asking I needed to purchase anything, and she would buy it while completing secret shopping gig. I decided Spinach Rockstar Kush, but had seen a few reviews of this Mule Fuel, so I gave it as a back up.

For the secret shopping protocol; first there was an ID component, she had to see if they checked ID. Then a discussion with the budtender needed to happen about any of the products. She went in under a pretty honest pretense, that she was purchasing the cannabis as a gift, and was considering both offerings I mentioned above.

Budtender Recommendation 

As you can probably tell, they didn’t decide to go with the Spinach Rockstar, they chose this Sugarbud Mule Fuel. In retrospect, it was probably the right thing to do, for a gift. Mostly for the small touches, the glass jar, and the flower has a unique profile.

Price difference between the two offerings was $6, or about 20% of the total price in this package size. The bud tender also mentioned sugarbud was a small producer, while Spinach was a ‘big’ producer.

So here we go with Mule Fuel.


All the Breath ‘strains’ should share a Mendo Breath parent, or a derivative of (according to me). There are some that don’t. Further back in the Mendo Breath lineage is something called Mendo Montage (by Gage Green), and there’s a specific cut called Lurch, that is one of the parents used in this Mule Fuel. The other counterpart is GMO, and Thug Pug was the breeder.


I called the visuals neutral, I was on the fence about it. They’re really good actually, but there’s some small buds included. The bud has interesting colouring, not attractive, but interesting. Surface details are a mix of good and bad, overall structure is really good (on the larger buds).


Was great.


Frontage is acrid pine, it’s a tad disturbing to the senses, before the midrange, which is minty nail polish. The base seems to be berry and bitter soil.


I found the tastes to be minty fuel, with pine, and an herbal, pepper, clove mixture which gives the profile a green feel. Pronunciation and longevity are both great.


I knocked it for the smaller buds, giving the visuals a neutral. Everything else is top notch and there’s no way I could make a case for a detraction in the feel or the scent/taste.


Value is calculated as ‘above average’, I felt like that’s accurate.


Overall, quality is good in the right places. I’d relate the smaller bud sizes was the only component to feel bad about, which was representative of a fraction of the weight in this package. The price I paid is higher than average but I still found value there.
