Dark Web – Alien Labs, CA, Winter 2024

95 out of 100 points

Price: $64/eighth

Batch Size: 60 lbs.

Dark Web is a winner, baby. Derived from Zoap bag seed sourced from the award-winning Sacramento grower at Alien Labs/Connected Cannabis Co., Dark Web is a welcome addition to the two brands' lineup of killers selected from a recent pheno hunt. These bulging, purple-gold buds are truly some of the densest, densest cola structures I've seen in a while. This strain is shockingly colorful to the eye, opening into a fluffy cloud of green, gold, and bright purple when ground.

This stunning batch tested at 30.11% THC and 0.07% CBD. The Dark Web dry pull is hearty and sparkling, but shy – hiding its complexity. Dark Web is a unique twist from the minds of Alien Labs and unexpected. You'll immediately feel Cyberpunk Matrix-level elation and confidence. Dark Web sneaks up on you for hours after the session with strong, melodic and calming body buzzes.

Ted Lidie of Alien Labs says: “It will definitely be added to the roster in the future.” Dark Web hits stores on 2/16/24.
