This strain is from Cresco’s own “Reserve” line of connoisseur, custom-bred strains.
I'm guessing that this strain's name may have been inspired by the CTA's Green Line.

TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see theCannabinoids Library.
Physical Characteristics: Pale lemon colored with a hard candle wax-like consistency. Definitely not a budder form as listed on the product label.
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.
In its intact state, this sample emitted a mild pungent lime citrus aroma. When dabbed, this live resin tasted of pungent citrus/lime and earthy-sweet notes, though the flavors were somewhat muted. It was difficult to coax live resin-worthy flavors from this sample, which I achieved inconsistently only at very low dab temperatures.

Effects: It’s a more intense version of the flower’s effects. Starts out with a mildly assertive and pleasant cerebral high. After about 10 minutes a noticeable body component joins in. Another 10 minutes or so, and you feel its full potency and nuances – a powerful mind/body experience that feels like about an even split that favors the mind a tad. Unlike the flower, at moderate and high doses the high can get noticeably racy and offers more energy than the bud.
Duration of Effects: 2-3+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with mood and fatigue. May also help with stress, focus, mild-to-moderate pain, depression, appetite (and more)
This live resin offered accurate effects, but the flavors were iffy for a live resin and the form had hardened. I’ve had the excellent flower and this extract was a good translation but not a great one. And, although I never consider price when assessing a product, the reserve line $70 price point is not at all justified for this specific sample.

Is this a medical or recreational cannabis program? I can't discern.
And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again...’cause I’ll be there.
