Case: Thunder Cookies Sauce (extract)
File Date: 07/03/2019
Case No: 0283
"Fortunate Son" By CCR
Method of Extraction: Butane
Form: Sauce. Possibly Live Resin. I have not verified with the cultivator.
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 terpenoids (and cannabinoids) from the cannabis and capture them in the final product to provide a more complete and intense terpene and cannabinoid experience.
Type: Indica-dominant (breakdown unknown)
Genotype: Thunder Cookies = Alaskan Thunder Fuck (ATF) X Girl Scout Cookies (GSC)
This is an in-house bred strain.
ATF is a North American Sativa with some complex genetics that may include Ruderalis in the mix.

Cannabinoids Profile: THCa 72.00%; THC 10.28%; CBDa 0.38%; CBD 0.77% (LK Pure Labs)
TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library.
Physical Characteristics: Amber, saucy and stacked with diamonds. This is more accurately described a sauce-and-crystals extract and not just a sauce.
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 live resin emitted mainly a pine aroma with spicy notes. When dabbed, I tasted a pine foundation with a light tartness. The flavors were moderate in intensity and surprisingly less Durban-like than I had expected.
TIPS: Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve the most flavorful and potent experience. To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: A cerebral stone accompanied by a vibrant yet relaxing body high. It is a high that shape-shifts over time. Always pleasant no matter where you are on its journey. An interesting ride that’s worth the trip.
Duration of Effects: 2-3 hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with energy and mood. May also help with focus, mild-to-moderate pain, stress (and more)
A pure, top notch sauce. My only main criticism is its lack of complex flavors; however, this may simply be a result of the strains involved. ATF as a flower has very subtle mostly earthy terps.
