(the) Essence: The Social Catalyst

At (the) Essence, quality and experience go hand in hand, creating products that are not just consumed but experienced. A standout recommendation comes from Shannon Popov, who says, “Love the Motorbreath preroll from Essence because it draws out the perfect chatty-good-mood-high for socializing on a night out in Jersey City.” This endorsement highlights the brand’s ability to craft a product that enhances social experiences, making it a go-to for those looking to enjoy the vibrant nightlife of New Jersey with an uplifting and engaging high

(the) Essence | Motorbreath | 2.5g Prerolls

Big things come in small packages. Pack of (5) 0.5G pre-rolls in a portable, sealed tin. Named after its excessively gassy flavor and smell, Motorbreath crosses Chemdog and SFV OG Kush. This award-winning strain produces a flavorful smoke with notes of fuel, earth, and citrus. If you’re an OG fan, Motorbreath is a must-try, but novices should be aware of its potent effects.
