High Terpene Full Spectrum Extraction, better known as HTFSE, are a sensory overload of cannabis molecules. Full spectrum extract begins from a fully dewaxed BHO oil. We then allow the terpenes to separate at room temperature while THCA boulders begin to isolate. After this separation begins, we split the two substances and reintroduce them, amplifying the flavour and character of the product.
Live resin is a type of butane hash oil extracted from fresh cannabis plants that have been frozen immediately after harvest. Cannabis plants, while fresh, contain a different collection of terpenes than cannabis that has undergone a more traditional curing process.
By freezing the fresh cannabis plant matter, cultivators and manufacturers are able to keep their product with a higher water content than is typical of concentrates made from traditionally dried and cured cannabis plants. Butane in particular is water soluble above certain temperatures so, to prevent contamination, live resin is extracted at very low temperatures. Extractions of fresh, frozen plant matter must be made between -20 and -50 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent the butane’s toxins from polluting the extract as the frozen cannabis is washed in solvent.
Ultimately, the cold, fresh extraction process produces an extract that contains more terpenes overall, particularly the lightweight and volatile monoterpenes like Myrcene and Terpinolene that are common in cannabis, but significantly harder to keep around throughout the high-temperature drying and curing processes that are otherwise typical to the industry. When a cannabis plant is flash-frozen immediately after harvest, however, cultivators and manufacturers are able to preserve terpene profiles more fully. Today, cannabis patients and enthusiasts are turning more and more frequently to these terpenes as indicators of specific effects that might be common to a strain or phenotype.
Indica Dominant Hybrid
Gelato (also referred to as “Larry Bird”) is another tantalizing hybrid cannabis strain from Cookie Fam Genetics, following in the footsteps of its parents Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint GSC. This Bay Area, California native gets its name from the fruity, dessert-like aroma, a common genetic thread among the Cookie family. Her buds tend to bloom in dark purple hues illuminated by fiery orange hairs and a shining white coat of crystal resin. Novice consumers may want to approach this THC powerhouse with caution, but those armed with a high tolerance will delight in Gelato’s heavy-handed euphoria. Physical relaxation comes on strong, but many find themselves still mentally agile enough to stay productive and creative when enjoying Gelato during the day.
Flavour: Sweet, citrus and earthy
