Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this sample, so I will not be providing the specific terpene levels for this product.
I have been dabbing Ataraxia shatters since their first batches over 3 years ago. Over the past year, I've observed some noticeable changes in their shatters' flavor and physical properties. Once thing you'll notice is that it foams up when introduced to a nail and continues to foam up excessively for a long time, even at very low temps. Ataraxia's shatters never used to foam up when interacting with heat. In fact, I've never had another shatter that does foam in any way. I do not know why this is happening, but it is a chemical reaction of some sort. Regarding flavor, no matter the strain there is now this competing flavor that tastes very odd and almost milky, which overwhelms any of the native cannabis terpenes that were retained.
In its intact state, this Forbidden Fruit shatter smelled of mildly of orange citrus – the Tangie side. Having smoked Verano’s Forbidden Fruit flower, its loud, fruity terpene profile was more subdued with this shatter but did taste of fresh tangerines and musky cherry on the exhale, though there was milky flavor I described above, which lingered in the background.
Flavor Intensity: 2 [1 Low, 2 Moderate, 3 High]
TIP: To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: Mind and body relaxation all the way. A great strain for physical relief and calming the stresses of life.
Duration of Effects: 2.5 hours
May Help With: Helped with mood and sleep. May also help with PTSD, body and muscle pain, nerve pain, anxiety, stress, depression, nausea, appetite (and more).
This is a clean, potent product, though its odd foaming and milky flavor intrusion compromised the final product significantly.
