Characteristics: This sample was a dark amber with a rose-colored tint. It resembled hard candy, and broke off in shards. As with any shatter, this sample became malleable when warmed by the touch.
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this product so I will not be providing the specific terpenes and their levels for this sample.
In its intact state, this shatter emitted almost no aroma but for a hint of spiciness. I’ve never had this strain in any form before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Darkhorse Genetics describes the flavors as “...spicy hints flavor packed candy aftertaste”. When I dabbed this shatter, it tasted lightly of herbal spiciness up front, but the exhale was a flavorless, extremely harsh, generic experience. This harsh terpene profile did not mellow for me with continued use. Your palate my offer a different take than mine.
TIP: To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: The high was a potent, mostly Sativa ride. If you are a Sativa connoisseur, then here you go: gives you a Durban Poison-like energy with a creeper Thai spaciness, if you know what I mean. There was also a noticeably body element at work, too. Complex, energetic, shimmering, intense at times. Give this one a little time between dabs or you may need your mommy, and mommy might not be there.
Duration of Effects: 3-4+ hours
May Help With: Helped with mood. May also help with fatigue, depression, mild aches and pains, appetite (and more)
This shatter was pure and potent, but not very flavorful and quite harsh. If the flavor profile would have been a full expression of this strain’s terps and less harsh, I would have given this product a higher rating. I still gave this shatter a better than average rating because the effects were so powerful and long-lasting.

Nope, it wasn't Chris Brown, it was Donny Hathaway.
And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again...’cause I’ll be there.
