Frost Donkey Bx1, a more recent addition to Revolution’s roster of strains, comes from a high-performance hashing lineage. A cross of GMO and Peanut Butter Breath, the flower’s abundant frosty coating of trichomes and strong, gassy terps lend themselves naturally to solventless concentrate production.
While I was surprised to see that Revolution had placed this cultivar a stone’s throw into the “sativa” end of the spectrum, after taking the Frost Donkey Bx1 live rosin badder home from NuEra Chicago and dabbing it, the decision was less puzzling. For only having been manufactured April 26, just over a month before I began sampling, the sand-colored badder was stiff and dry on the exterior.
Within days of opening, oxidation soon penetrated the gram, leaving it caked up as if I had left it out the entire time rather than stored it properly in the fridge between uses. Like the Sun Queen OG, the cold-cured rosin was treated with a linear manipulation technique resembling cornrows in a field.
Total cannabinoids on this gram clocked in at 87.95%, including 84.44% total THC and leaving 3.51% unaccounted for. Funky peanut butter gas was the foremost note of the cold-cured rosin’s aroma, accompanied by faint, slightly metallic, chemmy whiffs of Sharpie and earthy onion. Considering Frost Donkey Bx1’s odoriferous parentage, the smell of the concentrate was frankly underwhelming.
In dabs between 520F and 540F, robust flavor redeemed a less prominent scent with notes of doughy garlic, forgivably bitter overbaked cookies, and savory gas against a sweet pine background distantly evocative of maple donut icing.
Whether from a rig, Peak, or vape pen, a hit found me munchy, chatty, and a touch restless, with attention engaged and patience protected against ordinary annoyances. Frost Donkey Bx1 also enhanced my perception of music and remedied symptoms of a poor night’s sleep including fatigue and gastric pain.
After an up-front current of energy came a consistently hard crash that set my circadian clock to naptime, making this live rosin best suited for dinnertime and a brief productive spurt before hitting the hay. For more Illinois News Joint reviews, click here.
