At Canna Bingo last week I had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners of Utopic Vibes. This local company combines crystals with pre-rolls for a one-of-a-kind experience. From the packaging to the papers, you can tell that this brand is well thought out. I am pretty sure I even overheard the owner casually mention the papers are sourced from Zig Zag in France.
Is the effort reflected in the quality though?
My short answer is, yes!
The pre-rolls smoke smoothly. The flavor is mild, and the effects are on-par. The packaging makes this feel like a luxury product.
When I hit up Moonlight Apothecary last week, they had the Utopic Vibes pre-roll 5-packs on sale buy one, get one free for $30.00. Making each pre-roll $6.00ea at regular price. Which I'm not mad at. The added excitement of getting a crystal to match your medicating experience makes it worth while.
Each crystal is specially picked to fit the vibe of that particular strain of flower. Thus enhancing the overall effectiveness and complimenting medication.
The two I picked were "Uplift" and "Passion".
Crystal: Blue Lace Agate
Strain: Tropicanna Cookies
On the back of the packaging it says "Blue Lace agate is known to enhance clarity, promote harmony, and elevate the soul. This vibe pack lifts your spirit to manifest positive energy and euphoric highs."
Inside the packaging is an info card that goes into more detail about the stone and flower.
When I tried this for the first time I set the crystal on my chest while I medicated. I wanted to get the full experience. I can say that this strain does help me focus. I don't get much anxiety, and it is a good strain to smoke while I am working on the computer.

Crystal: Rose Quartz
Strain: Blueberry Muffins
This one is supposed to enhance love and "heighten sexual energies". I have mixed feelings about this one. If I only take one or two small hits, it feels nice and relaxing. There is a fine line between that and feeling the sudden urge of "I am too high, I might have a panic attack." Included in the package, the info card says that Blueberry Muffins is a cross-breed between Purple Panty Dropper X Blueberry. I have noticed that Purple Panty Dropper gives me anxiety, so that explains it. However, if I just medicate a little bit with this pre-roll, I feel relaxed and even motivated. I do not feel "sexually heightened" though.

Are the crystals worth the hype?
I don't know if I could tell you definitively that they change the way the pre-rolls make me feel.
But, they are neat to have, and I do love the packaging and the information card.
Mostly, I love how well this product was thought out.
Would I buy it again?
Yeah, I think I would.
