This Moonbeam by LBS review is made possible by Canadian licensed producer, Canopy Growth. The strain stems from their brand Tweed in partnership with Leafs by Snoop Dogg (LBS).
While the famed rapper has definitely helped highlight this weed on dispensary shelves, we wanted to try it out for its high THC content.
Moonbeam is far from a budget option (even in Quebec), priced at $39.90 for 3.5 grams. Is it worth the high price?
Read on for a full Moonbeam review where you’ll find out if this heavy indica-labelled strain is worth your dollar.

First Impressions of Moonbeam by LBS
As mentioned, we were excited to try this based on its THC content. That said, our first impressions could have been more inviting.
First off, this batch was packaged on August 14th, 2019 and it was purchased on October 11th, 2019.
Moonbeam by LBS has a push-top packaging, encased in metal. It’s deceiving though since it seems to have a false bottom. Once opened the container doesn’t hit the bottom with about 3/4 of wasted space.
With that said, at least it doesn’t look like you’re carrying around a big batch of Advil like some other cannabis containers.
Sight and Smell
Right away we could tell it was dry as hell. Considering the package date, we weren’t too surprised. You could tell it was once healthy and gorgeous, and it’s as if too many seasons have passed and now it’s sad and lonely.
Overall it looked underwhelming at its pricepoint with dry small and popcorn nugs rolling out of the container. There was definitely no “ah yeah!” moment.
As such, there wasn’t much of a smell either. It was reminiscent of a pack of dry noodles, which we expected considering how dry it looked.
Fortunately, it was still frosty enough to be subtly inviting.
How Moonbeam by LBS smokes and tastes
It was actually a smoother smoke than expected. That said, because of the dryness it did seem lacking.
Perhaps if it wasn’t so dry, we would have been able to taste it better.
On that thought, we popped in a Boveda humidity pack for a day which seemed to help it along. It thankfully brought back some of the smell and taste, giving it more of a pine-like aroma.
It also had more of an earthy taste, blended with the flavour of pine and mint. To sum it up, it tasted like a Canadian forest that didn’t get enough rain for the season.
In the label’s defence, we did get bursts of berry and sweetness but it was very muted. We will note that it busted up in our grinder decently.
One thing’s for sure, Moonbeam by LBS will get you baked. The high is clear, with relaxing and calming effects. It’s also fast-acting and hard-hitting.
It’s appetite-inducing, so be sure to keep some munchies nearby.
Moonbeam is probably best smoked in the evening or at night since smoking enough of this will blast you off to dreamland.
To Roll This Up
While the effects were there, they still felt lacking, especially for the price. Overall, Moonbeam by LBS was an underwhelming adventure into celebrity-endorsed weed.
We don’t see ourselves purchasing this again since the gamble isn’t worth the price.
That said, if you have the cash and get your hands on a fresher batch, let us know how it goes!
Say high and chime in!
