Sometimes you wait a long time to finally sample a strain. In the case of this particular chemovar, it’s been well over a year and a half since I first spotted it on menus, but the weed stars simply never aligned. That’s why I jumped at the opportunity to sample Orange Soda Crumble Wax by Progressive Treatment Solutions when I saw it on the Consume Chicago menu.
Orange Soda from PTS is a sativa leaning hybrid cross of Jilly Bean and Chem D. This batch of crumble wax tested at 80.29% THCa, 5.6% D9-THC%, 1.72% CBGa. The most prevalent terpenes were b-myrcene, b-caryophyllene, and linalool.
As always, I commend PTS for including a scannable QR code on every package that links to a full Certificate of Analysis. It’s a good practice and more cultivators should do it.
This gram of crumble wax came as a deeply amber, brownish hash colored messy mound of pliable wax that was much closer to budder than crumble. There was a noticeable terpene sheen to the top and the wax clumped around my tool under pressure rather than crumbled.
The aroma from the jar was reminiscent of hashish, earthy with a kiss of candied orange, lavender, and fresh green bell pepper. The flavor carried more of that toasty hash character while the orange and lavender notes really took a backseat. We are rapidly becoming a cannabis market that wants butane hash oil to be as un-hashy as can possibly be achieved, but I really enjoyed this flavor profile.
The effect profile started in my body with a tingling euphoria radiating through my core that helped to relieve some chronic back pain. The mental experience took a few more minutes to fully set it and when it did, it felt more like a relaxing hybrid than an energetic sativa.
No matter the dose, I was left a bit dazed and locked in my head. Orange Soda worked well for a lazy afternoon or as an aperitif, but it didn’t pack the energetic sativa punch that I look for in a daytime strain. For more Illinois News Joint reviews, click here.
