Method of Extraction: Ethanol (i.e., ethyl alcohol; food grade alcohol)
Per the manufacturer - “Gold Leaf® RAW WAX is a pure cannabis concentrate made with our proprietary extraction method utilizing organic food grade ethanol. The final product contains a full terpene and cannabinoid profile and is very pure, potent and flavorful. Made from organically grown flower. Extracted from premium flower nugs not trim.”
NOTE: This is not a “winterization” process using ethanol since that process uses cannabis extract as the actual starting material. See this review for an explanation and example of an extract manufactured via winterization.

Characteristics: This sample was a beautiful single piece of semi-opaque, golden-yellow shimmering wax. Visually, it looked very pure. The consistency was very similar to semi-hard candle wax.
TIP: The best way to handle these harder forms of wax is with a dabber tool that has a scoop end.

In its intact state, this sample’s aromas were extraordinarily strong for a wax, smelling of pungent-fuel with sweet notes. When dabbed, it tasted intensely of fuel up front followed by a light sweet-berry with citrus grapefruit-like notes, especially on the exhale. The dabbing experience was especially smooth.
Effects: With THC levels over 90%, the effects are an instantaneous cerebral shockwave that is at once energetic and heady. For me, the G6 flower also provides a noticeable body high and this wax did not disappoint, offering a noticeable body component that intensified as the cerebral waned. The crash is a soft landing of total mind and body relaxation. If you like the G6 flower, you’re going to love this wax.
Duration of Effects: 3-4 hours
May Help With: Helped with mood, G.I. spasms and fatigue. May also help with appetite, stress, anxiety, PTSD, ADD/ADHD, creativity booster, some forms of nerve pain, some types of body pain (and more)
Exceptional quality wax that breaks the ratings scale for its superb purity, outstanding terpenes retention and expression, smoothness and thoughtful packaging. A conscientious product in every way.
