Effects + Experience: 44/50
Bakerstreet is overall fairly functional in lower doses and has positive effects on my focus and mood. It is certainly relaxing and great for pain, especially menstrual cramps and sinus headaches. With a strong Myrcene content, there is somewhat of a “couchlock” effect with this strain when used in higher doses, so it can be great for medicinal purposes or for those with sleeping difficulties. This strain vaporizes very well and, when vaporized, it really highlights the earthy aromas. Combined with the peppery, clove flavours, a bit of a dirt taste and smell is actually not such a bad thing. 

Sight, Touch, Taste & Smell: 30/40
Bakerstreet buds are dense, bright green and filled with trichomes and amber pistils. The scent is overwhelmingly peppery, with a bit of a “piney” undertone. The peppery scent is mirrored in the taste, with some hints of burnt marshmallow and, honestly, dirt. In a blind smell-test, I rated Bakerstreet third out of 5 strains (Bedrocan, Bediol, Bakerstreet, Sun-Grown Boaty McBoatface, Sun Grown Orange No. 1).

Cost: 10/10
Dollar for Dollar, this is one of the best strains that Tweed Main Street offers.

What I like:
+ The value! For 6 dollars per gram, you really can’t go wrong here. I feel that Tweed has put consumers first in a way with this strain.
+ A good nights sleep. When used in higher volumes, this strain puts the “out” in lights-out.

What I don’t like:
– It sells out almost as soon as it’s available. Bigger yields, please!
– The buds can be small and a bit dry.
– Can be a bit irritating to the throat when smoked.
