The black and gold Dabstract packaging is attractive enough and well-designed, but that color scheme is played out. The packaging indicates the strain used to make the extract was an indica, and promises no pesticides, additives, and give a little description of the extraction process. All of the terpene info was included on the Uncle Ike’s label, and the package informs that those terpenes are 100% cannabis-derived, and strain-specific, which is interesting and good to know. The container itself is fine but not noteworthy, the little glass jar is thicker than standard, and the lid is plastic. I definitely prefer the silicone lids, the product sticks to it less, and if it does get stuck there’s no fear of accidentally scraping off plastic.
DAMN! This is some loud extract. The label on the lid promises some terp sugar, and it does not disappoint. Definitely some of the most fragrant extract in the game. GMO is known as a strain with a unique terpene profile that delivers some truly unique flavors and scents and this live resin provides a product that really showcases that fragrance. As soon as you unscrew the lid you get hit with an overpowering scent, an intense pungent and savory cloud as if someone cooked you up some delicious Thai food–garlicky, and with a hint of lemongrass. It definitely has a quality to it that is almost unnatural or chemically smelling but in a good way, like a lemon cleaner. It all blends perfectly together to create a one-of-a-kind scent. The texture is standard for live resin terp sugar, a little sticky and messy, but manageable.
EXPERIENCEUpon first dab, this GMO live resin terp sugar establishes itself as exceptional. The flavor matches with the scent profile, with that unique blend of savory, alliums, lemon, and chemicals that sounds kind of gross but is actually unbelievably delicious. This is thanks to the super-high levels of limonene and myrcene. The high packs a punch, with a powerful calming effect, coupled with a joyous, blissful buzz that raises spirits and helps balance the indica out and keep you from getting couch lock. This strain had me laughing at things I may not have normally laughed at, which is always a treat.
Between the scent, the exquisite flavor, and the high, this live resin terp sugar was wonderful. It’s hard to find an extract that rivals, and even surpasses the terpene profile of flower, but this live resin does that. It’s the best of both worlds in terms of a super terpene-heavy product, which changes not only the flavor but the high, and packs the punch of an extract.
