Chi Dawg Live Wax

What is “Live Resin”?
Live Resin is a specific type of cannabis extract whereby fresh cannabis flowers (i.e., buds not yet dried and cured) are harvested at their apex of maturity, cryogenically flash frozen under very cold temperatures and then used as the extraction material in the manufacturing process of that extract. The process of manufacturing Live Resin is an effort to retain as much of the fresh terpenes (and cannabinoids) from the cannabis and capture them in the final product to provide a more complete terpene profile experience.

TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library.
Physical Characteristics: Lemon-colored, juicy-fresh and butter soft.
PharmaCannis’ nitro-sealed canisters keep their products extremely fresh for long periods of time, which I can attest to from experience. I’ve found this packaging to be superior.
Terpene Profile: This is the terpene profile listed on the product’s label. The top three terpenes with the highest quantities present are highlighted in red text.
Beta-Caryophyllene 2.29%; Elemene 3.38%; Alpha-Humulene 0.72%; Limonene 2.40%; Linalool 0.71%; Beta-Myrcene 1.47% (LK Pure labs)
This live wax gave off an assertive diesel aroma with cheese notes. This sample tasted of full-on diesel with cheese undertones and sweet berry notes on the exhale. An intense, sometimes sharp set of terpenes. Live Resin Tastyyyy!
TIPS: Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve optimum flavor. To learn about how to use this terpenes data to better your health, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: A potent, heady, stimulating high that kicks in quickly. There’s also a noticeable body buzz in the background that takes over at the end. For some, especially less frequent users, the high will borderline couchlock. For this experienced reviewer, the effects were heavy but they didn’t knock me out. I found that these effects stimulated my creative activities.
Duration of Effects: 2.5-3.5+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with mild cervical pain and mood. May also help with mild-to-moderate pain, stress, depression, nausea, appetite, possibly some M.S. symptoms, migranes (and more).
A superb live wax once again by PharmaCannis, who is killing it in 2018 in the live waxes and sugars category.
