G-13 Live Resin: HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
For the month of October, it’s all about the horror. Here’s the last one on this Halloween...
This is one of my favorite scenes of any horror movie.
WARNING: This video is graphic and may scare the living daylights out of you.
Method of Extraction: Butane
Form: Live Resin "Sugar Slab", per packaging
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 and intense terpene and cannabinoid experience.
Type: 100% Indica genetics OR Indica-Dominant Hybrid (approx. 70%/30%)
Genotype: G-13 = ? Afghani X ? Afghani
If you believe the legend, the original genetics of the true G-13 strain, or Government Indica Strain 13, was a pure Indica strain that was bred sometime in the 60s or 70s at the U.S. government’s cannabis cultivation center in Mississippi. The story goes that the lineage was derived from several of the best pure Afghani Indicas, which were collected by the CIA. The phenotype “G-13” was selected as the most ideal for their goal of a super potent Indica. I know, it all sounds absurd. Only the reptilians hosts who live among us really know.
The contemporary G-13 cuts sold in dispensaries are typically not pure Indicas. That said, I have no idea if Revolution’s cut is a true Indica or a hybrid.

Characteristics: This sample was a pale, semi-soft, neon-gold/yellow. Just starting to begin to dry out.
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this product, so I will not be listing the individual terpene levels for this review.
The live resin itself emitted notes of pungent pine and earth. When dabbed, a sweet pungency really comes through first, followed by light pine and earth. A tasty Indica experience.
TIPS: Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve the most flavorful experience. To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: Powerful, classic Indica stone that gives you instant concrete eye lids. A little heady at first, but soon the potent Indica body relaxation joins in. The mind and body melt at moderate and high doses. Functional in low doses for experienced users, but couch lock potential is only a dab hit away!
Duration of Effects: 3+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with stress and muscle spasms. May also help with chronic pain, anxiety, panic, depression, insomnia, PTSD, appetite, nerve inflammation, nausea (and more).
A tasty live resin of an enigmatic strain that’s potent and offers a wide-range of medicinal benefits.

And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again...’cause I’ll be there.
