"Must I Evolve" By Jarv is
Method of Extraction: Butane
Form: Sugar Live Resin (aka Live Sugar)
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: 100% Sativa Thai Landrace
Genotype: Purple Thai = A Thailand Landrace (OR Oaxacan Gold X Chocolate Thai)
My research indicates that Purple Thai is a landrace strain and one of the oldest native Thai cannabis strains. It seems there are two natural phenotypes of this landrace: One has a purple shimmer on the leaves and flowers while the other cut exhibits darker green leaves with heavy trich coverage.
Anesia Seeds offers a Purple Thai cut. In their own description of the genetics, I don't see anywhere mention of Oaxacan Gold or Chocolate Thai. And to point out the obvious, it would be impossible for Purple Thai to be a landrace and have any Mexican genetics. So, it seems that Anesia Seeds offers a true PT landrace in which the high THC content was stabilized using "different specialized breeding methods". When it first emerged in the recent MMJ market, a cut was sometimes referred to as ‘Oregon Purple Thai (OPT)’. Legendary breeder DJ Short has developed various Thai strains, too, including his own cut of Purple Thai.
I’m unsure if this extract was made using the true landrace, the Mexican / Thai cross or some other current phenotype.

In its intact state, this sample emitted a light sweet, citrus aroma. When dabbed, I tasted very light sweet citrus and floral. It was The flavor intensity was very subtle with this sample. I found it difficult to coax any real flavor from this extract.
