Officer Dick Downey's Pot Report
Method of Extraction: Butane
Form: According to the label, this extract is a Live Resin in “Sugar Sauce” 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: Turbo Lemon Cake = Sour Kush X Sour Diesel X Harlequin
This is not the same strain as Moxie Seeds’ Lemon Cake.

Physical Characteristics: This sample was a mid-toned shade of lemon. It was not a loose sauce and I could not detect any crystals, so I would not describe this as a "sugar sauce" consistency. After close to four months, this extract had solidified into a soft and scoopable form.
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this sample, so I won’t be including the specific terpene levels for this product.
In its intact state, this live emitted light aromas of lemon and hints of fuel. When dabbed, it tasted mildly of lemon, fuel and a hint of pine, in that order. Since it’s a live resin and a “sugar sauce” I would have expected a more flavorful experience but this batch was made in Feb so I am assuming the terps had degraded some.
TIPS: Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve the most flavorful and potent experience. To learn how you can use this terpenes data to better your health, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: Lots of endless, sustained energy. You’ll want to get-up-and-go, and you will, but you’ll also feel a psychedelic vibe that I found to be quite intense at the high’s peak. About halfway through, I did notice a mild body element kick in. You might also observe, like I did, that time gets away from you easily. For this reviewer, it was an intense, sometimes trippy high. There is a good chance you’ll feel racy or anxious so please proceed very low and slow with this one.
Duration of Effects: 2.5-3+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with G.I. cramps and energy. May also help with mild aches and pains, mood, appetite (and more).
This product would have received a higher overall rating if it had resembled the physical properties of a sugar sauce and if the terpenes had not degraded. I do not consider price when assessing a product, but I will comment on it when warranted. Who wants to pay on the high end for a mediocre product? Not me. Several cultivators are producing very high quality sauces and live resins at lower price points ($50-$65).

And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again, cause' I'll be there.
