Peppa Haze – Mata, NY, Winter 2024

82 out of 100 points

Price: $52/eighth

Last year we got our hands on some Piff Haze grown in collaboration with Ithaca Organics – but now I have it straight from the source.

Mata's Peppa Haze is a Haze from the strain's 20-year-old keeper, Ivan Ferreira, now available at CONBUD in Manhattan. Straight from the glass, this Haze lets you know what's going on – even my flu season sinuses picked up on the strong notes of black pepper, a hint of ammonia, and some umami. We can't expect it to look like Cali weed since New York growers can't grow fully indoors yet, but my jar was packed with long, thread-like buds with an easy cut and trichome shine. I was a little disappointed with the THC levels (~15%), but I found that it actually reduced my anxiety before a potent session – a little Peppa goes a long way. It's euphoric, stimulating and delicious; in a word: joyful.
