TL;DR – The psycho clown archetype has gotten a lot of milage in pop culture. Clowns are scary, menacing clowns are even more so. Crazy Clown is not.
If anything, it’s pretty tame – more Bozo than Pennywise. I tried the 5x because it was supposed to be the most potent blend in the line. If that’s the case, I can’t imagine the others do anything at all. There’s a bit of a buzz that creeps up on you, but at $45 for 3 grams, I can’t imagine they get any repeat customers for something so weak.
As hard as it is to believe, people still fall for the same old advertising gimmicks. Just throw a well-known image on your packaging and you’re practically guaranteed to draw in customers who find comfort in a familiar, iconic image. The folks who manufacture Crazy Clown Herbal Madness seem to be utilizing this technique when they branded their product. The only thing I don’t understand is, what the fuck do creepy clowns have to do with getting high?
The creepy clown is a well-established staple in pop culture. From that fast food guy to Pennywise, clowns are creepy. When it’s a killer clown, there’s nothing as disturbing. The clown on Crazy Clown 5x isn’t that scary. He looks a little more Joker than John Wayne Gacy. Still, I don’t get paid to judge a product on its packaging. Come to think of it, I don’t get paid at all. But I digress. I’m here to let you know if that legal high is worth throwing down your hard-earned monies. In the case of Crazy Clown, not so much.
Luckily for me, I didn’t blow my own cash on this stuff. A friend of mine bought three grams and and brought it over to test it out. He ordered the 5x because it was touted as the most potent of the blends so, as all smart legal high testers do, we exercised caution and packed up a bowl. We took two hits each and waited to test the potency of the blend. After a 15 minute wait, we killed the bowl and pack another. The smoke hits harsh at first but settles down pretty quickly. After the second bowl, we played some video games and were almost convinced it was totally bunk when we noticed some effects creeping up on us.
One would hope that the clown on the packaging would meant his was a happy, giggly high. No such luck. It was more your standard synthetic cannabis high, albeit very weak. We smoked some more and eventually got where we wanted to go but when you couple the price with the amount needed to get you high, this stuff is far from a bargain. I’d smoke it again if it was free but you won’t catch me buying the stuff. I guess a beginner might like this. Then again, a beginner could just get a better product and just watch their dosage. I’m not impressed with this crazy clown. Maybe ICP ruined the clown archetype forever?
