Officer Dick Downey's Pot Report
Your Illinois Cannabis Authority
Case: Super Lemon Haze Live Resin (wax)
File Date: 12/28/2016
Case No: 0079
Officer Downey here.
I’m taking a holiday break from narrations this week, but I still wanted to post a few reviews before the end of the year.
Method of Extraction: Butane
Form: Live Resin Wax
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 terpenoids (and cannabinoids) from the cannabis and capture them in the final product to provide a more complete terpene and cannabinoid experience.
Type: Sativa-Dominant Hybrid (80 %/20%)
Genotype: Super Lemon Haze = Lemon Skunk X Super Silver Haze
2008 and 2009 High Times CC winner and first prize at the 2010 International Cannagraphic (IC) 420 Growers Cup
TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library page.
Physical Characteristics: A dark mustard colored, soft and pliable piece. A medium brighter neon yellow in places where the wax had not yet been exposed to the air.
Terpene Experience: In its intact state, this sample hits you with a surprisingly intense sour lemon aroma with notes of sweetness and pungency. It does resemble a lemon Pledge®-type of odor, but it’s not identical. One of the strongest aromatic profiles for an extract that I’ve encountered in Illinois. When dabbed, it tasted exactly as it smelled: pungent, sour lemons followed by a hash-sweetness.
This live resin wax sample provided a much more nuanced and intense terpene experience when compared to a regular, non-live resin butane wax.
TIPS: To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library page. Try dabbing this wax at lower temperatures to experience these intense terpenes at their fullest.
Effects: What I personally enjoy about this very assertive Sativa’s effects is that it is not pure moonshine. It’s bright and uplifting in very comfortable ways. It’s motivating and energetic without the raciness or a heavy crash. Don’t get me wrong, the effects are very potent, but they’re also clean and inviting.
Duration of Effects: 3 hours
May Help With: Helped with fatigue. Might also help with stress, depression, PTSD, minor muscle and nerve pain, nausea, appetite, ADD or ADHD, migraines (and more)
High marks for off-the-charts terpenes, purity and potency.
