G6 Live Resin: An American Superhero
I expected this Memorial Day weekend to be no different than all the others. I assumed I’d encounter the usual crazies. You know, the drunks, domestic disputes, the noise complaints, BBQ mishaps. And that's exactly what happened. But something else happened, too.
Sunday afternoon my partner and I get a call about a liquor store robbery. We're very close and arrive on the scene in a few minutes. We enter the liquor store and see a guy being subdued by two store employees. As we take the guy into custody, we can’t help but notice that his entire head is wrapped in duct tape and he’s wearing an old sheet that he had fashioned into a cape and on it, in duct tape letters, it read “DT”. The perp told me he was “Captain Duct Tape”. I asked him how he could call himself a superhero if he was stealing and he said, “Superheroes need to get their drink on too, officer!”
Method of Extraction: Ethanol (i.e., ethyl alcohol; food grade alcohol)
Form: Live Resin in wax form
What is “Live Resin”?
Live Resin is a specific type of cannabis extract whereby fresh cannabis flowers (i.e., buds not yet dried and cured) are harvested at their apex of maturity, cryogenically flash frozen under very cold temperatures and then used as the extraction material in the manufacturing process of that extract. The process of manufacturing Live Resin is an effort to retain as much of the fresh terpenes (and cannabinoids) from the cannabis and capture them in the final product to provide a more complete terpene profile experience.

In its intact state, this live resin emitted light odors of sweet fuel. When dabbed, this live resin tasted of sweet fuel with notes of grapefruit. Having dabbed Ataraxia’s other G6 extract products many times, this live resin more flavor intensity than its regular wax cousin.
IMPORTANT: I’ve found that this live resin is especially sensitive to high heat dabbing. The flavor and, to some degree its potency, degrades quite a bit when dabbed at high temps. I highly recommend low temp dabbing this live resin for the optimal experience.

Effects: This G6 product offered the same great medical and euphoric effects that I’ve experienced with Ataraxia’s other G6 iterations: an instantaneous cerebral injection that is at once energetic and heady. For me, the G6 flower also provides a noticeable body high, as did this live resin, which provided a noticeable body component that intensified as the cerebral waned. The crash is a soft landing of total mind and body relaxation.
Duration of Effects: 2-3+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with mood, G.I. spasticity and fatigue. May also help with appetite, stress, anxiety, PTSD, ADD/ADHD, creativity booster, some forms of nerve pain, some types of body pain (and more)
A fresh, pure and potent product.
