PACKAGING

Avitas packaging is always pleasantly designed. I love the teal and white color scheme, and the plant-centric logo. It’s minimal yet warm and friendly. In addition to being attractive, the package provides all of the necessary information. The sativa sticker is prominent. The solvent is CO2, which is easy to find on the front of the package, along with the fact that it is 100% pure and full spectrum. The back sticker is super detailed, with the strain name, Durban, the farm the flower was grown on, Cannasol, and a full range of cannabinoid and terpene info. It’s displayed in an easy to read table, which is unique and as aesthetically pleasing as it is practical. It also has directions which are a nice little extra for folks, because sometimes with CO2 oil it’s not always clear- is it activated and edible? Can you dab it, or is it only meant for vaporizing? This takes out the guesswork by telling you to dab or vaporize it.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

The concentrate is a really nice color, that changes dramatically with the light. A light amber color in natural light, and a much darker and richer hue under bright artificial lights. Once you get the syringe out of the package and pop off the cap, the fragrance is noticeable. It’s a pungent floral scent that makes you excited to give it a try.

EXPERIENCE

I have to admit that I don’t normally like CO2 oil for dabbing. I find it to be messy and harsh. This Avitas CO2 oil won me over. While it was drippier than oils made with other or no solvents, it wasn’t even close to as hard to work with as I find most CO2 oils to be. I squirted it onto a dabber without wasting any and it stayed put. This is in part because the texture was nice, but also because the syringe works super well, and lets you portion it out a little more carefully than some. Once my dabber hit the nail, and I took my first hit, it was magic. That pungent floral fragrance translated into a similarly delightful flavor, though there was a little sweetness detected in the flavor as well. So aromatic and unique. The terpenes tasted just like flower, you could tell they were plant-derived. The excellent outdoor sun-grown input paid off. This extract satisfied my sativa-loving soul. I dabbed it first thing in the morning, and though that’s not my usual routine, I didn’t regret it. It was a great companion to my coffee giving me an energetic buzz and boosting my spirits. It readied me for a busy, stressful day.

OVERALL

Don’t want to be an evangelist, but damn, I really loved this oil. The exquisitely designed and informational packaging, the uniquely pliable texture, the wonderful aromatic flavor and fragrance, and of course that signature sativa high, made for an excellent overall experience. Even if you’ve been on the fence about CO2 oils, I recommend this one.
