Quality Products, Unique Bundle Packs and Competitive Prices
The mail-order-marijuana dispensary TheGentleHerb.com has proclaimed themselves as “Canada’s most gentle herbal dispensary” and with good reason. The Gentle Herb has a beautiful website with no pop-ups, stunning product photos and overall, gives a fantastic online experience.
A unique part of The Gentle Herb’s service is that they sell flowers in sizes as little as one gram (for $8 on average) as well as specialty bundles; like mix and match packs of flowers for either 10 grams or a quarter pound and then one ounce bundles of shatter.
Moreover, The Gentle Herb also has a test pack with two types of flowers, one shatter and a Plain Jane Vape pen. There was also our favourite, the “Movie Night Pack”, which has one flower, one large pre-roll, THC cola candies, and shatter.
In addition to a soothing online interface, amazing products and worthwhile bundle packs, The Gentle Herb also has some of its products on sale on top of their already awesome prices. The flowers are vacuum-sealed and shipped in discreet packaging in 2-3 days (with leeway); everything from picking out what to smoke, to receiving it in the mail was wrapped in security and compassion.

Dank Schrader (Indica 80%/Sativa 20%)
The very strong indica strain, Dank Shrader, came with a full head of red and orange hairy pistils, like a small, red-haired, baby doll. From the famous parents of Bubba Kush and Rockstar Kush, Dank Schrader could make the kief-iest bowl seemingly, known to man. The aroma paralleled the look, which somewhat reminded me of a Californian Redwood forest, with hints of pleasant sweets, pines, musk and earthiness.
When the Dank Schrader was combusted, the muskiness of the flowers burnt my nose at first, but the hit itself was surprisingly smooth. The flavour of the pines shined through more than the sweet hints of the earthiness of the flowers. The high came on quick and the aroma was subtle, it was clear to see why this strain was a couple of dollars more per gram.
When vaped with the Arizer V-Tower, Dank Schrader luckily did not leave me with my nose on fire, as it had with a bong. The flavour and fragrance were sweeter with the tower and the high was toned-down a notch; which was much better for a casual high, rather than a couch-lock.
Dank Schrader is not an entry-level strain, it is more for those who are experienced and still looking to get a unique and very fun high. Dank Schrader is an incredibly strong strain and leans very much for towards its indica characteristics. This means that it is a superb strain to smoke before bed, after dinner, to fall slowly into a calm and dreamy, state-of-mind.
Furthermore, this strain can be used to help treat a variety of symptoms and conditions, such as (but not limited to): acute and chronic pain, glaucoma, fibromyalgia, insomnia, nausea, migraines, epilepsy, appetite loss, opiate addiction and recovery, Parkinson’s Disease, inflammatory diseases, nightmares, depression, anxiety and/or other mood disorders (as directed).
Strawberry White Castle (Indica 50%/Sativa 50%)
The Gentle Herb’s Strawberry White Castle comes from a 50-50 hybrid, Strawberry and the indica-dominant hybrid, White Castle; making a balanced mix of relaxation and energy. With White Castle’s fruity lineage, the marriage between the two was a match made in heaven. When first opened, the smell of sugared fruits filled the air, with small hints of tart and sharp, diesel gasoline in the background.
When combusted, Strawberry White Castle was a purely delicious dream strain, that had a similar aroma to a bag of dehydrated strawberries and apricots. The hits became very smooth and with a head full of strawberry blonde pistils, it made to a very resiny paper, when rolled into a joint.
When this strain was vaped with the Arizer V-Tower, the sweet and fruity fragrance became very strong, almost as if someone had lit a robust, sweet-smelling candle right next to me. The hits were even smoother when vaped and the vapour settled well around me and left me feeling slightly dazed and wanting more.
The effects of Strawberry White Castle from The Gentle Herb were heavenly balanced for a hybrid, bringing out the best of both worlds. This strain helped with creative blocks and would be a perfect remedy to stressful times; but mostly, it can help bring about happiness and feelings of extreme calmness.
Moreover, this hybrid strain can help to treat a variety of symptoms and conditions, such as (but not limited to): arthritis, chronic pain, fatigue, fibromyalgia, insomnia, nausea, asthma, migraines, glaucoma, appetite loss, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory diseases, depression, stress, anxiety and/or other mood disorders (as directed).
Fruity Pebbles (Indica 55%/Sativa 45%)
The Gentle Herb’s Fruity Pebbles strain is also sometimes called “FPOG” for Fruity Pebbles OG, which takes its lineage from the indica, Granddaddy Purple, the hybrid, Green Ribbon and another hybrid, Tahoe Alien.
This unique line of cannabis was very light, sage green in colour and had more sativa-like effects than its parent strains. The buds themselves were mid-sized, dense, and hairy with colourful orange and purple pistils. The trichomes on the dense, mid-sized nugs were numerous and scattered across the entirety, looking like tiny, miniature crystalline structures, all over the surface of the bud.
When combusted, Fruity Pebbles filled the entire room with a milky, thick layer of smoke and a familiar and fruity, cereal smell. The sweetness that came out of the FPOG strain carried through more in the flavour and less in the smell. Behind all of the fruity sugar, the aroma still had a bit of funky, skunk odour. All of this charm was tied with a delicious and euphoric high.
When vaped with the Arizer V-Tower, Fruity Pebbles was particularly sweet. The flavour was not that of white coffee sugar, but of the sweet goodness in dark, red strawberries or ageing blueberries. It was very similar to the zest of the cereal it was named after.
The Fruity Pebbles strain, famously from Alien Genetics, was an amazingly great choice for any time of day. It helped with feeling calm, creative and most importantly, it provided a steady surge of euphoria. It did not take long before the high set in and boy was it a wonderful experience; I could have been doing nothing or anything and would have been happy with it.
This strain can also help to treat a variety of symptoms and conditions, such as (but not limited to): headaches, fibromyalgia, acute and chronic pain, fatigue, glaucoma, arthritis, insomnia, stress, loss of appetite, depression, anxiety and/or other mood disorders (as directed).
Pink Kush House Shatter (Indica-Dominant Hybrid)
The Gentle Herb’s Pink Kush House Shatter was made in-house with the 90/10 indica dominant hybrid Pink Kush and is available from 1 gram to entire golden, amber and translucent slabs. The strain Pink Kush is an offspring of the infamous OG Kush, which has been around for decades and has been used to father many other celebrated strains like Headband and Girl Scout Cookie. This buddery shatter coming from such a notable family line gave great promise and after trying it, it definitely lived up to its name.
When touched with a white-hot crystal glass nectar collector, the Pink Kush House Shatter bubbled and smoked with a thin ribbon of floral and earthy tones. Before touched with heat, the smell was like that of sweet flowers with still a strong cannabis scent like that of THC candies.
When vaped with the Carta Focus V vaporizer, the Pink Kush Shatter hit like a smooth; yet, strong beauty. The water in the Carta Focus V helps create a water bong-like experience for smoking concentrates, which helped pull out all of the sweet sensations from the shatter and made to a delicious way to smoke it.
The effects of the strain Pink Kush were immensely relaxing and this shatter could potentially be a substitute for sleeping medication. It came on gently and with very little effort I was sleeping soundly. Vaping shatter is the best way to get the most out of the concentrate. This way makes it easier for people who do not like to smoke, but still want to relieve pain and want to sleep.
This Pink Kush House Shatter from The Gentle Herb can also be used to help treat a number of symptoms and conditions, including (but not limited to): migraines, insomnia, both acute and chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, inflammation, stress, loss of appetite (most times), opiate addiction and recovery, depression, mood swings, anxiety and/or other mood disorders (as directed).
Motor Oil (Granddaddy Purple, Indica-Dominant Hybrid)
The Gentle Herb’s Motor Oil, made from Granddaddy Purple, came in a small, glass jar that was branded, labelled, and read “76.82% THC” and “2.97% CBD” along with a very cool looking, biker skull. The texture of the Motor Oil was like that of a room-temperature, sweet frosting and the colour was like that of wildflower honey, very wild. The smell from the jar was pungent with a full-bodied woody, diesel and slight skunk fragrance.
When touched with a crystal nectar collector, the Motor Oil ran very fluidly so I would suggest being careful as to not smoke too much in one hit. Coming in a glass jar, I was able to smoke right out of it but separating it into smaller pieces makes it all the easier. The flavour was like that of a delicious deep woodiness; as well as a smokey diesel and sweet earthiness, making the motor oil the surprising aroma and flavour delight of my night!
When vaped with the Carta Focus V vaporizer, the Motor Oil from Gentle Herb became aerated by the water and the essence of the Granddaddy Purple (GDP) came out to play. This delightful addition brought out the undertones of sweet grapes, berries and skunk from none other than the acclaimed GDP strain.
The effects of this Motor Oil are very similar to other concentrates; except the concentrate dial on the Motor Oil is way turned up! A whopping 77% THC from an indica-dom hybrid means this oil is for nights and evenings in the living room, couch-locked (when desired); there was both a mind and body high that came with smoking this beautiful and buttery concentrate and it helped alleviate a lot of my day-to-day, aches and pains.
Moreover, this strain can be used to help treat a variety of symptoms and conditions, such as (but not limited to): muscle spasms, acute and chronic pain, insomnia, nausea, loss of appetite, fibromyalgia, migraines, inflammatory diseases, opiate addiction and recovery, stress, depression, PTSD, anxiety and/or other mood disorders (as directed).
Cola Bottles 120mg (Sativa or Indica Available)
The Cola Bottles by Canndybis Cannabis Products comes in a beautifully designed package with 10 candies that have 12mg of THC and 1.5mg of CBD each – a total of 120mg THC and 15mg CBD in the pouch. And the best part, the Cola Bottles are available in either sativa or indica.
The candy Cola Bottles are coated in flavoured sugar crystals and the bottles are coloured like they are half-full with delicious Coke or Pepsi. The taste of the candies is like that of a cola and they are also very sweet and sugary with absolutely no taste of cannabis.
Without a cannabis taste, this treat is perfect for eating in public places where you don’t want your mouth to reek of weed. Running out and about without smoking, I started with two of the sativa candy Colas and started to feel much more relaxed roughly 40 minutes later (on a relatively full stomach, as this helps digest the edible).
The overall effects of two sativa candies left me feeling happier and less anxious to go home. They were very delicious and I really enjoyed the buzz they gave me. I have also heard of eating indica candies before bed to sleep more soundly, so I may have to order the indica Cola Bottles to try it out for myself.
These candies could also help to treat a number of symptoms and conditions, such as (but not limited to): anxiety, nausea, headaches, inflammation, fibromyalgia, glaucoma; however, conditions such as insomnia and fatigue depend on the candy chosen, be it an indica or sativa.
More on The Gentle Herb Supply Co.
Altogether, The Gentle Herb lived up to its gentle and soothing name; the products that were chosen turned out to be quite the beautiful and delightful endeavour. What I found to be my most favourite was the Pink Kush House Shatter, specifically with the Carta Focus V vaporizer because it is the bong of all vapes and bongs are my specialty.
The customer service that The Gentle Herb provided was also as excellent as their products. They are constantly looking for new strains to add to their index. As their “About Us” page says, any customer is more than welcome to email them with suggestions – truly aiming to form a community within the online world of the cannabis industry.
