Hoping to find out a bit more about Rainbow Driver and what to expect? Then you’re in the right place. Here we’ll be sharing product information, hearing from a few members of the team, and kicking off THC with Bre, where I test things out and share a bit of my experiences. It’s like Lofi’s CBD with Bre, but with a THC twist.
With all that out of the way, strap in and get ready for takeoff.
The Woody Nelson edition of the Rainbow Driver genetic was bred by Archive Seed Bank and grown in an indoor vertical farm using organic living soil. This high-THC cultivar is rich in terpenes, including d-limonene, beta-myrcene, and trans-nerolidol and smells like citrus and tropical flowers. The plant's bright, frosty buds are hand-trimmed and cured for a minimum of 3 weeks before packaging. Each glass jar includes 3.5g of flower and a Boveda humidity pack.
Here’s What Some of the Team had to Say:
Walker - Chief Commercial Officer:
“This could be an award winner. Between the nose and flavour, the experience is delightful. All the things you typically care about, this one is fantastic for. We’re hoping it’ll be a core cultivar at Woody Nelson over the next few years.”
Zack – Digital Marketing Specialist
“I’m always a bit nervous when it comes to smoking because my tolerance is so low, and I tend to get anxious if I smoke too much, so there’s a fine line to walk. I found that I dosed this well for myself and the high was clear, I felt bubbly and energized, but not anxious, which was exactly what I was hoping to achieve. I tend to smoke more mellow cultivars, so this was out of my wheelhouse. It definitely has opened me up to experience some more energizing highs.”
Tai - Grower:
“Rainbow Driver is dear to everyone’s hearts. Through legacy connections, we found a really unique genetic; something that really makes an impression in terms of terpenes, ease of growth, and the effects.
The effects of this one hits most people in a way that’s memorable. It cuts through the haze. Real chronic cannabis users are sure to notice the difference. It’s something people will come back to.
Rainbow Driver is real champ on the rosin side as well. It’s great to work with, incredibly robust, and can produce great yields.
However, it might not win the same bag appeal. It doesn’t set up in the same way that some people really like in terms of aesthetics of bud development. But everything else is really great. This one’s a special genetic.”
Jolyon – Facility Designer:
“As a grower, it’s one of those cultivars you can throw everything at and it’ll take it. Some cultivars you have to be more careful with; you can stress them out easily. Rainbow driver will handle virtually anything you can throw at it, which is great, because there aren’t a lot of cultivars that can handle high heat, nutrients, etc. It’s also very potent, has a great nose, and is a high yielder. It’s one of those plants we really seek out. Ticks all the boxes, and there aren’t many out there that do that.
However, it’s a bit strong for my tastes these days – kind of a one hit wonder. But it’s the nose and taste that really come through. It’s the type of weed you can smoke a quarter of a joint, come back a couple of days later, and when you light it again, it’s not like you’re tasting old weed or weed that’s been smoked already. You still get that nice favour and terp profile.
The bag appeal isn’t the best, but we’ve been starting to get some pinks in it.”
THC with Bre
As a cannabis noob, the team thought they’d get me to try out Rainbow Driver and tell them what I thought about it. Similar to what we were doing with CBD with Bre over at Lofi, THC with Bre will showcase me trying new things and chatting about some of my experiences. That’s it. Maybe it’ll help give you an idea what to expect, or perhaps offer you a different perspective on the same product. With all that in mind, here’s what I found with Rainbow Driver:
After trying Glade Runner the day before, I was ready to check out Rainbow Driver. I was a bit hesitant about this one because of everything I had been hearing about it – that it was strong. I’m a bit of a lightweight and not much of a smoker, so I guess my approach to this one was a little more cautious.
Compared to Glade Runner, Rainbow Driver was overall a bit of a better experience. Really smooth smoke, tastes better than it has any business tasting, quick onset effects, and a really nice high. Calming without any of the fuzziness, if that makes sense. While I was initially worried that Rainbow Driver wouldn’t be so ‘beginner friendly,’ I actually found the opposite was true. Since the high came on so fast, it was easy to set limits and not overdo it. I also found it a bit less sedating than Glade Runner – I was able to vibe without compromising my focus or art time a little better.
I’m not sure I’m going to keep up this smoking thing, but Rainbow Driver might be enough to tempt me into it.
