Method of Extraction: Butane
Form: Live Sugar, which is a live resin in sugar form
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: Lime Skunk = Lemon Skunk X Green Ribbon
Exotic Genetix is the original breeder of Lime Skunk, as well as the Green Ribbon strain.
This ‘Lime Skunk’ strain is not the same as the ‘Lime Green Skunk’ strain.

Physical Characteristics: Neon lemonade color. Those bubble looking spots in the photo are actually all crystals. Saucy & stacked with diamonds.
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this product, so I will not be providing the specific terpene levels for this extract.
This live sugar emitted over-the-top sweet and tart/bitter fresh limes. Extraordinary assertiveness. When dabbed, this sample tasted of sweet and bitter fresh cut limes with a tartness that lingers on the palate. An incredible expression of the Lime Skunk flower. Perfection.
TIPS: Low temp dabbing is mandatory to achieve optimum flavor with this live resin. To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: I love what this Sativa has to offer: sustained, buzzing energy, focus but not 100% clarity like a Blue Dream. There’s space for the euphoria to stretch out while not offering too much of a jolt. That said, it may cause some raciness at moderate and higher doses, especially if you’re a new or casual user so take it slow.
Duration of Effects: 2.5+ hours
May Help With: Helped with mood and energy. May also help with mild-to-moderate pain, depression, nausea, appetite, motivation (and more).
This batch of Cresco's Lime Skunk Live Sugar was beyond perfect in its retention and expression of this strain's terpenes, which makes for insane flavor, what I call a “full spectrum high” and lots of medicinal potential. Very close to my highest "5-plus" rating.
