Case No: 0286
"Almost Saturday Night" By Dave Edmunds
Method of Extraction: Butane
Form: Live Sugar (i.e., a live resin in sugar 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: Indica-Dominant Hybrid (breakdown unknown)
Genotype: Vanilla Lights = Afghani X Kashmir Kush
This appears to be an in-house bred strain.

In its intact state, this sample smelled of clean citrus and sweet, floral notes. When dabbed, I tasted some dank Kush on the inhale with a light, sweet vanilla finally making a noticeable appearance on the exhale. The flavor intensity was in the mid-to-moderate range. I also found this extract to be cough-inducing.
TIPS: Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve optimum flavor. To learn about how to use this terpenes data to better your health, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: This is a fairly heavy Indica stone that starts in the eyes and migrates to the rest of the body in short order. Classic stonage from head-to-toe. Definitely functional at low and moderate doses, though “functional” can be loosely interpreted in this context.
Duration of Effects: 2-3 hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with mood and mild cervical pain. May also help with depression, PTSD, anxiety, a wide range of pain management, nausea, sleep, appetite (and more).
This extract holds lots of medicinal potential.
