“Work Weed” Review: Red Line Haze and Rollins by Cresco Labs

Out of the Illinois cultivators, Cresco Labs has the most high-energy sativa strains on the market. Two of those strains were entered into the Illinois Cannabis Cup. One of them, Red Line Haze, took third place for Best Sativa Flower. I preferred the other sativa entry: Rollins.

Red Line Haze is a cross between Wedding Crasher and Ghost Train Haze, one of my all-time favorite sativa strains. This batch of Red Line Haze totaled 21.91% THC, and the most prominent terpenes included an interesting pair: caryophyllene and terpinolene. The light green buds were bulbous with sparse orange pistils and covered with white trichomes.

Terpinolene is most often a secondary terpene, but the Ghost Train Haze lineage must have pushed it toward the forefront. The terpinolene delivered a dynamic mix of pepper, citrus, pine, and musk aroma and flavor. The caryophyllene added a sweet berry and cinnamon taste and flavor to the pepper. The smell and flavor also had earthy floral notes on the back end of each inhale and exhale.

The cerebral effects were uplifting and focused for the first dose, but the after the second, I found myself losing a little focus and energy, as if the Wedding Crasher lineage was finally taking over. Red Line Haze lacked the body buzz I usually enjoy with the energy and focus. This strain was good for daily work, especially for physical work and everyday tasks. I enjoyed Red Line Haze as a sativa strain, but I prefer Rollins as a Work Weed strain.

Rollins is a cross between Lemon Tree S1 and a Nigerian landrace. This batch boasted 22.68% total THC levels. The sticky buds were darker green with more amber pistils than the Red Line Haze buds but just as covered in frosty trichomes.

Rollins leading terpenes included myrcene, terpinolene, and pinene. Myrcene, the most common terpene in cannabis, added a lemongrass and spice to the already dynamic taste and flavor that I previously mentioned terpinolene offered. Rollins delivered strong citrus, lemon, and garlic spice aroma and taste with hints of gassy fuel and pine on the exhale.

Rollins delivered a strong cerebral energizing and focused effects that decreased my ADD enough to concentrate on writing for several hours. The high was uplifting, and Rollins provided the added benefit of a stronger body buzz than Red Line Haze did not. The myrcene and pinene added a body buzz that kept my muscles from aching and cramping during several hours sitting at my desk.

I enjoyed Rollins so much that I purchased a half-ounce of popcorn buds to save money and stock up on work weed. But the bulk buy did not pay off as much as I’d liked. Though the high was similar, the popcorn bud flavor fell well short of the flower I enjoyed.

The appearance of the popcorn buds were similar to the premium flower, but the taste of several of the buds lost all the dynamic mix of the premium flower and tasted improperly cured and burned. A few of the buds tasted as if I were smoking burnt garbage

Aside from the less than pleasing batch of popcorn buds, these two were strong work weed strains, especially the Rollins. Not sure if they will make our Top 5 strains for our end-of-the-year best-of awards. Stay tuned to find out.
