Mmmspeciosa Comprehensive Review (by Otter)

The following review has been written by one of our assistant reviewers, Otter.

I have tested the following products that Mmmspeciosa.com offers, along with test products they've sent. The test samples are added along with samples of other strains that you can choose on your own. Test samples are named with letters, so I can't really review them because the ones they keep end up being named as a new product on the site for purchase. Overall, most tests were quality and it is always pleasant to try something new. The company is fantastic about always adding a little extra to every order and shipping is never an issue. 

My typical burn amount is 8-10 g, so my reviews will be based upon that. This proves to be a little on the expensive side, but very consistent in quality.

Tawa Tua 
Pleasant burn at lower amounts, very low threshold for visual clouding and other effects that aren't so enjoyable. It wraps you in a warm fuzzy blanket and makes you want to relax and indulge in listening to some music or binge watch your favorite show on Netflix. Definitely one to use caution with while finding out the amount that suits you in your incense burner.

7.5/10
Moderate/Sedating



Green Sunda
I didn't notice anything but extra energy and clarity with this one. Definitely my least favorite. Not an aroma you'd want before bed, maybe one to add to a Red Vein to counteract the sedative properties. 

5.0/10
Moderate/energizing


Baik Bali
Fantastic product. Energizing but extremely relaxing. Everything seems to melt away and it leaves you with a happiness that is akin to cuddling tiny puppies. No vision clouding, even with larger burns. Makes you want to get up and get going and leaves a really nice afterglow. It seems to last longer than other strains as well. Definitely a favorite. Aroma leaves you feeling relaxed the next morning as well.

9/10
Moderate
[this strain is subject to review for the "Golden Leaf" award as referred by an assistant reviewer]



Bali Indah
Another favorite. No vision issues, energizing with a pleasant and warm afterglow along with a nice sense of relief. Sedating with larger burns, great for an afternoon burn but I would recommend not burning this one before bed. It seemed to keep me up and down all night, but definitely great for morning with a little green vein or white vein added.

White Vein Indo
Very energizing with no jittery feeling. One that I would burn before going to the park or when I have to actually make myself useful or take care of those adult responsibilities we all love so much. Great for a morning burn before work or hitting the gym. I don't personally ever get the urge to work out, but if I did this would be fantastic for it. Great aroma for clarity and energy, isn't as long lasting but still very good and it's lovely when adding to a Red Vein.

8.5/10
Energizing



Tropical Borneo
Not terrible, not great either. The aroma is good if you're feeling anxious, more of a mental effect than anything. Slow onset and didn't last very long. I'd definitely mix it with another strain for the extra patience and happiness it seemed to give me, so it's not useless, just not particularly great for a solo burn. 

6.5/10
Moderate



Red Vein Indo
A very pleasant and sedating aroma with a nice warmth that sneaks in. I like this one for a nightly burn and it lasts a bit longer than the others. Use caution and start lower, then burn more until you find your happy place. Burning too much can leave you feeling like you're wearing someone else's glasses when your vision is perfect.

8.5/10
Sedating 



Red Vein Maeng Da
Sedating but jittery when burning larger amounts. Lower amounts were best when getting the optimum aroma from this one. Great warm feeling with clarity and a feeling of purpose. Comes on quickly, so use caution. Great quality and good for relaxing energy. I always seem to float through the day with this one, which I don't mind at all.

8.5/10
Sedating 


Green Malaysian
Energizing but smooth. Great for morning or added with a White Vein. Gets you up and moving with its aroma and leaves you with an overall sense of well-being. 

8.0/10
Energizing

  1. Tried the Bali Indah and was one of the best Balis i have had in quite some time. Recommended for anyone who would like to give it a try.

  2. I am buying from Mmmm Speciosa for the 1st time. Previously I was a customer of another well known vendor (located in Oregon), but after I became I regular customer they started selling me crap: Stem & Vein labelled as Premium Leaf, for example. I guess they hook you first, then play around with you to see what they can get away with.

    Anyhow, Mmmm Speciosa. I read great reviews. I chose Green Malaysian, because, in my experience, when *good* Green Malay is gotten it's really the closest thing to Heaven. A 'full' euphoria feeling from a slow come-up (I like slow come-ups) with energy & focus but no jitters. And a long ride. That's when it's a *good* Green Malay.

    So I'll see how Mmmmm Speciosa does me on this 1st purchase. Thanks for the blog reviews. I found it helpful.

  3. The Baik Bali is an absolutely wonderful burn. One of a kind and wonderful.
