Ohio Medical Marijuana Strain Review:
Guice by Firelands Scientific
Time To Get Your Guice On!
Review & Photos by: Randy Shaffer
Packaging: First Impressions
Guice is a hybrid flower cultivated by Firelands Scientific out of Huron, Ohio. I finally got my hands on the new Firelands Scientific bottles, and they are a sight to behold!
The bottles are not too large, so the flower doesn’t dry out before you even get to vape it. The labels are easy to read, with plenty of info about the cannabis itself, and the logo and graphic design are also very pleasing. Featuring a wooden easy-open top, and gorgeous red glass (with a clear bottom, so patients can see the cannabis), the new design is absolutely first rate — easily the best in show for the Buckeye State.
Cannabis Look: Out of the Bottle
My 2.83 gram bottle of Guice contained several larger nugs, each about the size of a quarter or larger.
Up close, this strain features a playful calyx display, with frothy white trichomes and hidden greens. This is a somewhat leafy cannabis flower, too, with medium to light density. I actually rather liked the leafiness of this one as so many Ohio buds can be overtrimmed.
Sadly, I didn’t really like how this bud ground down. 2-3 nugs yields about 3 bowls for vaping. That said, this flower is very well cured, so expect those bowls to last you a while.
Smell Before Vaping
The aroma of Guice is right there in the name! This flower hits you with waves of blueberry and licorice, followed by juicy citrus sparks and strong diesel fumes that light up as soon as you grind this one. There’s also very mild cheesy notes, like parmesan, right up close. This one actually reminded me of Forbidden Fruit by Farkas Farms. Light, fruity and delightful in every way.
The Taste Test
I vaped this medical cannabis with an Arizer ExtremeQ vaporizer. I like to start my first bag at a lower temperature to open the terpenes, and work up to a higher temp to vaporize the cannabinoids.
Once vaped, this strain has a little more of a chemically taste than I was expecting at first, with an almost coffee-like bite. But as I vaped, more flavor opened up, eventually delivering a sweet citrus through-thread, with hints of that licorice aroma. There’s also a strong diesel aftertaste that does not disappoint.
Medicinal Benefits and Side Effects I Noted
Note: The medicinal benefits noted in this strain profile are for educational purposes only, and are not a substitute for the advice of a medical practitioner or licensed budtender.
Guice is an even hybrid strain, containing equal parts sativa and indica. The bottle I purchased contained cannabis with 25.10% THC and 0.00% CBD.
Several Youtubers have been asking me to check out some new Firelands flower, so I thought I’d start with Guice. This hybrid strain was recommended for its uplifting effects, as well as migraine, pain and depression relief.
Uplifting is definitely accurate, but mentally alert and energizing would better describe how I felt while medicating with this one. I wanted to write, work on creative projects, exercise, dance – you name it. The effects lasted quite a bit, too. From morning to mid-afternoon.
Pain in my knees and joints from running and playing Ring Fit Adventure during quarantine also lessened, though I still reached for some anti-inflammatory medications by the end of the day.
All told, if you’re looking for serious pain relief, this may not be your strain. But if you’re up for something mentally engaging, give this one a go!
Final Thoughts on Guice
Guice is a great flower from Firelands Scientific, though it may be a bit leafy or light for some tastes. That said, this one’s like a jolt to the system, activating both the mind and body in really exciting ways. If you’re looking for a strain with some serious energy and great mental activation, look no further.
Please be aware: Percentages of THC, CBD and terpene profiles can vary greatly between cannabis harvests. This means that some strains profiled at 420oh.io will contain higher, exact or lower percentages of active chemical compounds when purchased at Ohio medical marijuana dispensaries during different harvest seasons.

Calyx Peak in Ohio has officially changed ownership. They are now Klutch Cannabis (aka Klutch Select). To celebrate, we take a look at Triangle Mintz (or Triangle Mints), a minty sativa flower from the cultivator.
