Summer/Fall 2023

Price: $15/gram

There are no stems, no seeds and no messing around with the indica-dominant Birthday Face. A cross of Birthday Cake and Face on Fire #9, it regularly tests at over 32% THC, with over 35% THCa. The elevated THC levels work together with a strong limonene profile to produce an intensely relaxing high that hits like a train. Birthday Face’s light and fluffy, yet sticky and dense, buds feature golden trichomes and bronze hairs.

These nugs are fit for celebration, and produce a combined candy-, berry- ,and pine-flavored smoke that smells as delicious as it tastes. Full-plant harvest dried for 13-15 days at a climate-controlled 60ºF at 60% relative humidity; hand-trimmed and cured for 10-14 days.
