What we've got here is a review of Justice Grown's first extract release in Illinois. 

Dear Cultivators: Patients, dispensary employees & folks around the country reach out to me regularly to tell me how useful they find my product reviews and cannabis education. 99.8% of the products I review are my own personal meds. I do not monetize my site. So if you appreciate my efforts to profile your products and educate the community at large, and you don't mind 100% honest assessments of your products, I always welcome product samples for review. 


Method of Extraction: Butane

Live Resin

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 terpenoids (and cannabinoids) from the cannabis and capture them in the final product to provide a more complete and intense terpene and cannabinoid experience.

This sample was very fresh, scoopable and caramel-orange in color. It had a purée consistency. Sorry, the pic doesn't really do it justice. 

Terpene Profile:
The top three terpenes with the highest levels are highlighted in red text.  

Alpha-Bisabolol 0.8166%; Borneol 0.0288%; Camphene 0.0122%; Beta-Caryophyllene 2.0596%; p-Cymene 0.0141%; Fenchyl Alcohol 0.2243%; Alpha-Humulene 0.7089%; Limonene 0.4186%; Linalool 0.3957%; Beta-Myrcene 0.1464%; Nerolidol 0.1408%; Alpha-Pinene 0.0207%; Beta-Pinene 0.0427%; Terpineol 0.3226%; (LK Pure Labs)

In its intact state, this live resin emitted a light, earthy pungency. When dabbed, it tasted of GG#4 earth and sour pungency against a mint back-drop. A tasty GG#4-dominant flavor profile.

Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve the most flavorful experience with this live resin. To learn how you can use this terpenes data to better your health, see the Terpenes Library.

One generous hit of this live resin can literally take your breath away. Yes, technically this is a Sativa-leaning hybrid because of the GG#4 influence, but this hits you more like a GSC with even more ‘umph!’. Sure, there’s energy, but you’ve also got lots of euphoria and, before very long, you might be borderline couch-lock. It’s a creeper with a “why was I staring at my socks for the past 3 minutes while thinking about pork fried rice” effect. And there’s drool potential. If that happens, you will require a loving slap in the face.  

Duration of Effects:
2.5-3+ hours, depending on dosage

May Help With: Helped with mood and stomach cramps. May also help with various forms of body and muscle pain, nerve pain, depression, anxiety, PTSD, appetite, sleep disorders, cancer treatment side effects, nausea (and more).

Rating: 4.5/5
A superb live resin extracted from a potent strain that offers a wide range of medicinal benefits.
