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 shatter emitted a light, herbal-sweet pungency. In my experience, shatters typically offer less nuanced flavors than other forms of extracts; however, in addition to the generic pungency, there was a noticeable herbal and bubblegum-like sweetness.   

When I work with shatter, I break a piece off, warm it between two fingers, flatten it out more and then wrap it around my dabber tool. Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve the most flavorful and potent experience. To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.

These effects translated a more potent version of the flower. A potent yet functional Indica that starts with lots of cerebral euphoria that soon migrates to the rest of the body. Sedative, but not couch-lock level. A great stress neutralizer with lots of other potential medicinal benefits. 

Duration of Effects:
2-3+ hours, depending on dosage

May Help With:
Helped with mild G.I. cramps and mood. May also help with anxiety, PTSD, body pain, nerve pain, muscle pain, insomnia, nausea, appetite stimulation (and more).

Rating: 4/5
An excellent shatter that goes beyond the often generic flavor and expression of shatters to offer some of this strain’s specific tasty nuances and effects.
