Grandpa Bub Live Wax
Method of Extraction: Butane
Form: 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.
Type: Sativa-dominant Hybrid (% breakdown unknown)
Genotype: Grandpa Bub = (Pre-98 Bubba Kush X Purple Urkle) X Stardawg
I have not confirmed these genetics with PharmaCannis, so this may not be the exact lineage.

Delivery Method(s) Used: Glass dab rig with a quartz nail
Cannabinoids Profile: THCa 80.03%; THC 2.17%; THCv 2.72%; CBC 0.35%; CBDa 0.32%; CBD 0.29%; CBG 0.11% (LK Pure Labs)
TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library.
Physical Characteristics: This live wax was lemonade colored, butter soft and juicy fresh.
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 1.57%; Elemene 5.07%; Alpha-Humulene 0.45%; Linalool 0.76%; Beta-Myrcene 2.26%; Alpha-Pinene 0.47% (LK Pure labs)
This sample emitted strong aromas of purps and pine. When dabbed, this live wax tasted of purps and pine with sweet, earthy notes on the exhale.
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: For this reviewer, I found these effects to be nothing short of a classic, potent, couchlock stone. This wax really packed a wallop. I’ve heard the flower does, too. You’re going to be an official “lid drooper” after a dab or two of this extract. A great evening strain, or any time you require some maximus relaximus.
Duration of Effects: 2.5-3 hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with sleep and stress. May also help with a range of pain relief, anxiety, depression, appetite, PTSD, cancer treatment side effects (and more).
Once again, Pharmacannis knocks it out of the park with another top shelf live wax. Need I say more, tokers? Go get yourself some.
