In educated cannabis markets, strain specificity has become a sought-after trait with regard to the terpenes used to fill cartridges as well as the starting material for edibles since using generic mixed-batch distillate tends to be the most economical option for cultivators. However, as much as any given strain deserves to be appreciated individually, a properly mindful blend of strains can allow for complementary flavors, broad effects, and increased enjoyment.
The sizable facets and flowing high-terpene extract (HTE) in this gram created a glossy, chunky caviar consistency that, unlike my typical experience with diamonds and sauce, allowed for relatively easy collection of a moderate-sized dab and more paced consumption. Dabs at my usual temperature of about 520-degree Fahrenheit were refreshing, expanding my airway with a blast of sweet and sour vapor. Terpinolene, β-myrcene, limonene, and β-caryophyllene made up the primary terp profile, which induced instant mood elevation and an influx of social energy while an intoxicating wallop waited just around the corner.
Together, the three strains in the run acted in synergy to produce a flavor reminiscent of a lemon cough drop dissolved in a glass of the blended juice drink Five Alive, characterized by candy-sweet orange and bright lemon with an astringent back note of grapefruit sharpening the otherwise honeyed taste. In Sunny Dee’s tangy tapestry of fruits, threads of pine and chlorine from the Chem and Afghani genetics added further contrast to the mix.
With parental lineage all over the map, this live resin’s net effect was best characterized as an indica-dominant hybrid, since the initial punch-drunk uplift did give way to a decisive smackdown after a lengthy plateau.
Fitting for a range of activities, the balanced high gave me a sense of physical liberation as well as a mental clarity that matched the cleanliness of the oil, with none of the residual chest feeling that some harsher extracts can leave in their wake. I recently had the pleasure of visiting Bedford Grow’s cultivation site, including the extraction lab, and the mindfulness that was evident in every aspect of their operation pays off in products like this one.
