Trois et demi review

Trois et demi literally translates to “three and a half” in French.

It’s classified as a non-specific hybrid strain with medium intensity. There is no specification of what cannabis strains make up this hybrid and it appears to have arrived at the SQDC in August.

This strain comes from La Batch, a High Park Company that’s also part of the Tilray Family. Tilray is a Canadian pharmaceutical and cannabis company headquartered in Nanaimo.

You can buy this strain in a single 0.5-gram pre-roll ($4.50 CAD), a pack of five pre-rolls ($16.90 CAD), or 3.5 grams.

First impressions

Our order was packaged on August 27, 2019, about a couple weeks before purchasing it at the SQDC, so we weren’t expecting it to be too dry.

Trois et Demi comes in your typical plastic push-top government-regulated container.

Sight and smell

Upon opening the container, we found the smell to be a mix of light citrus with some fruity notes, and a hint of pine.

The buds themselves were light green with some light orange tones. We were sold fluffy, very sparse, smaller buds along with a few popcorn nugs.

As we hoped, there was still some moisture left for this Trois et Demi review, but it seemed to be getting on the drier side. So, we put a Boveda humidity pack in the container to help it along.

How it smokes and tastes

For this Trois et Demi review, we used the strain in a joint, bong, and pipe.

Busting this up may leave something to be desired, but it’s not the worst thing we’ve put in our grinder from the SQDC.

The smoke was surprisingly better than it looked. Much smoother than I expected with a mild taste.

It tasted like a “classic joint from high school” so I guess we can say it’s nostalgic, though I didn’t taste the notes we smelled when we opened the package. In fact, it was kind of bland.

The effects

Trois et Demi produced very mellow effects leaving us relaxed, yet still focused. Using this strain in the daytime and afternoon won’t slow you down. It gives a soft head high, perfect to pair with a coffee or tea.

Using this for chronic pain isn’t recommended as it’s too light of a strain but it can help with mild pain relief.

Mild cotton-mouth and an increase in appetite can be expected from Trois et Demis, and if you use enough, fatigue.

To Roll This Up

This was actually one of the better strains we’ve tried from the SQDC, especially considering the price. I say this even after always being a little taken aback at not knowing the blend of cannabis used in this batch.

At under $20 for 3.5 grams of SQDC weed, I’d recommend it if you’re looking for a mellow option. It can work well when casually smoking away on a chill day while on a budget.

That said, some others who have tried this strain feel differently due to the inconsistency of La Batch. For that reason, I’d be hesitant to buy again but it’s appealing for when I’m in a pinch.
