Characteristics: Yellow-colored with a semi-hard, candle wax consistency. .
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this sample, so I will not be providing the specific terpene levels for this product.
In its intact state, this wax emitted a very light sweet banana. When dabbed, I tasted almost nothing but for a light generic sweetness. Having smoked this strain in bud form several times, I was surprised by the lack of flavor. On my palate, I tasted very little, even at very low dabbing temps. The strain-specific terps seemed almost non-existent in this batch. This lack of flavor is uncharacteristic for an Ataraxia wax.
TIP: To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: Like the flower, I felt an initial cerebral happiness followed by a potent but functional body high that does not neutralize the cerebral but instead compliments it. With this sample, however, the high did not seem fully realized. It was noticeably flatter than it should have been, which I think was due to the lack of terpenes.
Duration of Effects: 1.5-2 hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with mood. While this strain may also help with PTSD, body and muscle pain, nerve pain, anxiety, stress, depression, nausea, appetite (and more), I did not experience the medicinal benefits with this batch.
Unlike the excellent flower, this batch of Strawberry Banana wax was underwhelming, especially for a medical cannabis product. I think the shortcomings are batch-specific because previous batches of this wax have been tasty and on-point.
