Today we will take a look at Buddies Brand, which many consider one of the best, most popular cartridges currently in the market. Buddies currently offer distillate with cannabis-derived terpenes and liquid diamonds live resin cartridges and Pax pods as well as concentrates and THC gel caps. This is the first time I’m trying the Buddies Brand Liquid Diamonds cartridge. For this review, I will be looking at the pros and cons of the Buddies Brand Liquid Diamonds cartridge.

Pros:

  • Excellent oil quality
  • Great potency/effects
  • One of the tastiest live resin cartridges
  • Efficient C-Cell hardware

Cons:

  • Oil burns a little fast
  • Cart is not glass

Recommendations: The oil burns a bit quicker than most live resin cartridges.

The oil quality looks darker than Raw Garden, Stiiizy Silver, but lighter than Heavy Hitters Live, Legion of Bloom California sauce, WOX/URSA

This week, I picked up the Buddies Jack Flash x Apple Gelato Liquid Diamonds cartridge. Once you break down this interesting hybrid, Jack Flash is a hybrid of Super Skunk and Haze and Apple Gelato is a hybrid of Gelato 33 and Sour Apple. The THC % of Jack Flash x Apple Gelato is 77.22% and the terp profile is 9.25%. The oil quality looks darker than Raw Garden and Stiiizy Silver, but lighter than Heavy Hitters, Legion of Bloom, and WOX/URSA. The oil seems to burn quicker than the usual live resin cartridge.

Build quality and design is solid and efficient with standard C-Cell hardware

The build quality and design are solid and efficient with standard CCell hardware; however, the cart is not made out of glass. Its hardware is similar to Select carts with the plastic tip, although it does not have a Buddies logo. Overall, I had no major issues with the airflow and/or hardware throughout most of the cartridge.

The potency is closer to Heavy Hitters, Legion of Bloom, WOX/URSA, stronger than Bloom Brand, Lemonnade and Rove Featured Farms

The effects of Jack Flash x Apple Gelato are initially uplifting and euphoric. After the Indica elements spread throughout the body, relaxing your nerves and muscles. This was perfect for mornings and afternoons as it has both Sativa and Indica properties. Its potency is close to what I’ve experienced with Heavy Hitters, Legion of Bloom, WOX/URSA diamond sauce carts. However, it is stronger than Bloom Brand live resin, the Lemonnade sauce carts, and Rove Featured Farms cartridges.

Just as tasty as WOX/URSA, tastier than Bloom Brand, Lemonnade and Rove Featured Farms

The taste of the Jack Flash x Apple Gelato is initially more earthy and floral than sweet and fruity, leaving you with a gassy and creamy apple Jolly Rancher aftertaste. The Jack Flash genetics provides me with immediate pain relief and the Apple Gelato provides an irresistible flavor. BB is easily the best cartridge that I’ve had since trying a Wox Strawberry Fields cartridge a few months ago. This is also tastier than the Bloom Brand live resin, the Lemonnade sauce carts, and Rove Featured Farms cartridges.

The Buddies liquid diamonds 510-thread cartridges are highly recommended for their reasonable price.

Both the distillate with cannabis-derived terpenes and liquid diamonds are available in 510 threaded cartridges and Pax Era pods. The Buddies 510 threaded full gram live resin cartridges usually retail at 40-50, pre-tax and the half gram Pax Era pods retail at $30-40, pre-tax. It is highly advised you use the Pax Era Pro for your Pax pods, as they produce stronger hits and milkier clouds. Based on instructions on their website, it’s advised that the Pax temperature is set between 520 and 550 degrees. As of now, the liquid diamonds in their regular 510-thread cartridges are highly recommended for its retail price.

In conclusion, I would highly recommend Buddies live resin cartridges for the excellent quality, potency, and taste for a fair price. The potency of Buddies live resin cartridges are close to what I’ve experienced with Heavy Hitters, Legion of Bloom, WOX/URSA diamond sauce carts. However, it is stronger and tastier than Bloom Brand live resin, the Lemonnade sauce carts, and Rove Featured Farms cartridges.
