Hey, everybody we are reviewing Tribal Cuban Linx today. If you have a Reddit account and subscribe to any of the Canadian cannabis subs you've definitely heard of this offering. I am fairly late to reviewing it, so there is not much new for me to add here that hasn’t already been determined by the community.
This is a great offering of high-quality and below average price that most will enjoy. You may not know that this variety was bred by Swamp Boys and is a cross of their Nigerian hybrid with GMO/TK (Triangle Kush) Skunk. What I found interesting was the flavour profile presents similar to what you might see from a ‘90s hybrid from a European Breeder. Which I’m not saying to knock it any, I’m more surprised by its flavour profile, given the lineage which includes parents like GMO.
Anyways, in this review, we will look at the quality of observations I made. We'll check out the price statistics versus the averages from our personal database. Then lastly, we'll pull in some market data to see how this looks in the larger picture of Canadian cannabis.
Colouring is typical green with orange stigma. Trichomes are evident. Trim is rougher throughout, giving the buds an unkempt look which makes this hybrid look more Sativa-like.
Feel out the can is good. Dries fairly quickly if you leave it in the original container.
Scents sing aloud with vibrant citrus, accompanied by a tropical-floral melon mix with finish with brief myrcene.
Tastes are sweetly spiced honey and herb, with twangy tropical fruit playing secondary. The spice and pine come out with use in the vaporizer, bringing some nice dynamism to the flavour. Character has an upward feel but remains familiar and friendly.
This offering has a lot going for it. At the core is quality, price and value. Quality is high, price is low and therefore, value is good, especially under the $25 mark.
Genetics is the other interesting aspect to this offering. The breeder of this offering has other notable cultivars in the Canadian market and worldwide. As I review this offering months after it has achieved popularity, I've noticed the breeder and genetic lineage are often omitted from positive reviews of this offering. Often during the course of these reviews I will suggest the breeder as necessary information and, an avenue towards other likeable offerings in the market but admittedly, I have had trouble with it as of late and I seldom notice others navigating the market similarly.
Finally, the market numbers suggest this is a sucessful eighth. This product has been on the market for well over a year and it's still a fan favourite, across multiple formats (pre-rolls, vape carts, whole flower, live resin etc.). There's a steady stream of good reviews across social media. Not just about this project but all the Tribal offerings, to be fair.
I look forward to seeing what they come out with next. Let's check out the price statistics for this product in relation to all purchases we've made for this website.
