Bruce Banner Crumble
Contributor: Asia Mayfield
AMA Bruce Banner
crumble jumped out at me because of the price: $22 for a fat half-gram. That’s enough to get you (and a friend) twisted all day long. Like most concentrates, this crumble reaches a high THC level. AMA products are sold at dispensaries across the valley, but you’ll rarely find them this cheap.
b-Myrcene: 7.40 mg/g
a-Pinene: 6.45 mg/g
b-Caryophyllene: 3.83 mg/g
Crumble almost always appeals to me. It looks like a piece of dried out butter. That may sound unappetizing to you, but it actually draws me in. I don’t pick out crumble by their looks. Truthfully, there isn’t much variation when it comes to appearance here. Bruce Banner crumble could be Sin City crumble, Sangria crumble, or any other crumble that I’ve tried over the last few years.
The aroma is nonexistent. That’s a bit of a surprise because it rocks a fairly extensive terpene profile. I expected a hint of myrcene and pinene to come through in the aroma. Instead, I can only tease out a slight buttery scent. It makes me want to grab a snack, not smoke a bowl. There’s nothing wrong about the odor, it’s just barely worth mentioning, to be honest.
I shouldn’t have been surprised. The smoke is almost flavorless. Now, to be fair, I did pepper my crumble into a joint, and smoked it that way. That method works, but it’s not the best way to experience crumble, in my opinion. If you dab it instead, you might be able to taste a stronger flavor. A low-temperature dab is perhaps the best way to appreciate these types of concentrates.
This is why you buy crumble. You want to enter a mind-bending headspace. Bruce Banner is a hybrid, meaning it relaxes your body and brain. You feel sparks of creativity. Take advantage of the pleasant mood, party people. The effects hit you almost immediately, long before you can get a grasp on how powerful the crumble really is. This isn’t a thinking strain; it turns your mind to mush while you’re smoking fairly quickly.
Bruce Banner isn’t for the faint of heart. This strain is dank. When it’s concentrated into extract form, the potency can hit you like a whiplash. One moment you’re sober, the next your mind is tripping out. It almost feels like you’re having an out-of-body experience. If you want to be completely and utterly stoned, smoke a bit of Bruce Banner crumble. That should do the trick.
Honestly, there isn’t a lot of poor quality crumble on the market. Now that extracts are made by professionals, quality is damn near ensured. AMA’s Bruce Banner Crumble doesn’t offer any surprises, and that’s a good thing. You know exactly what you’re getting, and I’m more than happy with that.

The name is simple and iconic. Walking into their cream-colored building, you expect to find the sparse, minimalist decor common in Westside Vegas strip malls. Instead, you enter a whirl of color, and barely suppressed glee. The Dispensary reminds me of a kooky aunt’s attic. It feels cluttered and homey at the same time.
I ended up here because of the deals. I’m like a bloodhound when it comes to affordable weed.
The Dispensary’s deal program is a little different. For one, you don’t have to be a local to take advantage of their amazingly reduced price points. There are two different prize wheels you can spin, based on how much money you spend.
If you spend at least $95 pre-tax, you can spin the big wheel. It’s a big deal; your budtender shouts “wheel spin!” and everyone’s eyes are pulled toward you. You can win prizes like a free pre-roll, a cash voucher, etc. This visit, I scored a $10 cash voucher, which I can redeem on my next visit. It doesn’t sound like much, but it’s enough to get me to go back to The Dispensary, that’s for sure.
If you don’t spend enough to earn a wheel spin, there are still deals you can enjoy. All first-time customers get $10 off if they spend at least $40. And, if you’re buying flower, you can pick up a quarter for $49 every day.
The budtenders are chill, yet engaged. I would smoke a bowl with all of them I could.
