I’m a longstanding historical sour fanatic. Warheads, Sour Punch Straws, anything with that citric acid sugar dust at the bottom. Since childhood, if it made me pucker, I was a sucker.
Long before learning what a terpene was, I always linked that electric zap on the tongue from sour flavors with an awakening jolt. Not much has changed but some hair on my face, and I still love the sour stuff, like Revolution’s Sourtarts live jelly. In a rare move, I picked up the sativa concentrate from NuEra Chicago based on its name alone.
Sourtarts is a cross of two old gems from Revolution’s genetic stable, Sour Joker and Doc’s OG. The jelly tested at 75.40% total cannabinoids, but with 62.73 THCa, 3.9% THC, and 2.6% CBD, that leaves nearly 9% to be accounted for by other cannabinoids, suggesting a broad-spectrum effect.
The gram’s most prevalent terpenes were listed as terpinolene, limonene, b-myrcene, ocimene, and a-phellandrene. I was least familiar with the last of these, but cursory research informed me that it is present in eucalyptus and fennel, and is often produced simultaneously with terpinolene.
The live resin was pale yellow in color, with a few large diamonds sunken in and a layer of sauce above a coarse jam of liquid and crystals. Though visually compact, I got more servings out of this gram than I ordinarily do from Revolution concentrates.
Notes of lemon-lime soda and cleanser dominate Sourtarts’ aroma, reminiscent of old-school Trainwreck. These notes carried over to the flavor of a dab, plus hints of Smarties and mint. The chest-expanding quality of the cleanly vaporizing jelly was like breathing in an acre of fir trees, allowing me to take larger dabs with ease when desired.
A rocking head high onset came quickly, slightly raising my heart rate and instilling unbreakable focus and intellectual motivation. I found the extract useful for supporting productivity and attentive socialization.
Physical momentum was emphasized as oscillating waves pulsed through my extremities and made my limbs feel like swinging pendulums when simply walking around. I also noticed an increase in responsiveness to music and rhythmic auditory stimuli, which kept me engaged for hours.
Overall, I recommend Sourtarts live jelly for refreshment in times when the fuel tank feels low and for an infusion of fresh perspective.
