Case: Tangie Ghost Train (Shatter)
File Date: 06/22/2016
Case No: 0020
Last night I busted a guy for attempting to buy stolen merchandise out of a car right in front of the station! But that wasn't the end of dumb.
As I’m booking him, I get to the question on the form about “handedness” and I ask the guy, “Are you right or left handed?” This genius looks at me like he’s about to disclose the mysteries of the universe to me, eyes wide open with this big self-satisfied grin, and he proclaims, “Both. [big pause] That’s right, buddy... I'm amphibious!”
I'd say about every third person you cross paths with is highly questionable.

TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library page.
Characteristics: A beautiful semi-opaque (or semi-transparent) piece that was medium-orange in color and without any visible flaws. The slab was very clear and malleable.
Terpene Experience: In its raw, unused form this shatter emits a very noticeable tangerine/citrus aroma with a sweet-hash haze odor right behind it. When vaporized, the flavor is incredibly vibrant and just as nuanced as the aromas. Tastes of bright tangerine and citrus with a sweet hash flavor, especially on the exhale. Shatters typically exhibit much less flavor than other forms of extract, but not this one.
TIP: To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library page.
Effects: The effects were at first an immediate and powerful cerebral experience, which soon took on a spacey element. There was also a noticeable body component, though the uplifting energy stayed front and center for most of the ride. With THC levels in the 90% range, this sample offered some very powerful effects that can creep up on you a little. First-timers should consider avoiding this shatter as an introduction to extracts.
Duration of Effects: 3 hours
May Help With: mood, stress, depression, creativity booster, nausea, fatigue, appetite, mild body and muscle pain, some forms of mild nerve pain (and more).
A connoisseur-level shatter for its unique & thoughtful blend of strains, wonderful flawless form and color and outstanding terpenes retention.

This level of stupidity is unparalyzed in my 3-plus decades as an officer of the law.
And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again...’cause I’ll be there.
