Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this sample so I will not be providing specific terpene levels.
In its intact state, this shatter emitted a light hash pungency. When dabbed, I tasted gassy dankness with sweet notes on the inhale and mild lemon on the exhale that lingers a bit on the palate. To me, there seemed to be a fair amount of Starfighter influence in the terps. The flavor intensity was on the low end of the moderate range (mild, moderate, high).
TIPS: I found that with this shatter, VERY low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve the most flavorful and potent experience. To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: I had a hard time trying to pin this one down. It’s stimulating. No, it’s stony. Wait, my body feels light. Yeah, it’s all of that; sometimes simultaneously, sometimes in stages. Starts out as akin to a mild OG-heady cerebral high and meanders from there. At higher doses, you may find yourself spacing out as time passes without notice.
Duration of Effects: 2 hours
May Help With: Helped with mood. May also help mild-to-moderate pain, creative stimulation, xx (and more).
This was a quality batch of shatter though the overall terpenes and effects were less defined and impressive as I had expected given all the hype out there on this strain.
