House of Shambala Overview:
House of Shambala is a company run by an MMAR grower who focuses on cannabis extracts in various forms. We had the pleasure of meeting House of Shambala at Karma Cup 2016 where we got the chance to try their versatile Liquid Dabs and vape pen. Over the last two years House of Shambala has refined their extraction processes and connected with better vape units. We had the pleasure of visiting their home to experience the plethora of products.
Accessing House of Shambala:
House of Shambala is located just outside of the GTA making it hard for them to access events consistently. Luckily we heard House of Shambala will be competing in the 2018 Karma Cup and will presumably have a vendor booth. This is the best place to make a purchase, so mark your calendar. If you’re unable to make it to Karma Cup, House of Shambala has their own website with contact information for those looking for products. House of Shambala is working on implementing a delivery service to the major cities in and around the GTA to provide quality service and products directly to their patients.
House of Shambala Pricing & Selection:
The Rockstar vape pens reviewed here come in both black and silver exterior, retailing for $50. Each of these pens contain 0.5mL of cannabis extract. Another product House of Shambala is very proud of is their Cold Fusion Temple Ball hash. It’s made through a secrete process and results in a dabbable product that can be handled by hand at room temperature. This Temple Ball hash is fascinating to look at and play with, I can’t wait to review it. You can purchase a gram of the Cold Fusion Temple Ball for $30/gram at Karma Cup this year or directly from HouseOfShambala.com. House of Shambala has created crumble, infused candies, pressed hash, various vape pens, etc. They have even branched out and created “Boobie Doobies” a line of exotic pre-rolled joints. These joints combine weed, hash, Cold Fusion Temple Ball, crumble, etc to create hard-hitting joints. Depending on what goes into each joint will affect the final cost. These joints can be packaged individually or in sets of 5, 10, etc and you can even have custom ones made for special events. There are also wholesale accounts available for those interested.
Unique to House of Shambala:
House of Shambala is run and operated under an MMAR medical prescription. This means all the cannabis is grown, processed, and packaged all by themselves onsite. This is important so you can maintain consistency between batches and know what exactly is in the product you are giving to patients. Since the last House of Shambala vape pen we reviewed, they switched over to use CCELL disposable units that they load themselves. These CCELL units do a great job of vaporing the cannabis oil at a low temperature, maintaining the taste along with provided strong medical relief. CCELL uses a ceramic heating chamber (hence the name CCELL) to heat the oil evenly with out getting it too hot.
Rockstar Vape Pen Taste:
When using the Rockstar vapourizer, right away you will notice the enjoyable taste on the inhale that’s surprisingly sweet. On the exhale the earthy side of the Rockstar is more noticeable, as my nose is left tingling from the terpenes. This is a wonderful flavour profile, which results from the cannabis being grown and extracted superbly.
Rockstar Vape Pen Effects:
The effects of the Rockstar Vape are that of a strong indica. After having a few puffs I feel relaxed all through out my body. My back has been in pain for a number of months now and its actually feeling fine thanks to this Rockstar. There is a slight mental fog accompanying the pain relief, but not one that is a major impedance. I definitely recommend using this product in the evening or before bed.
