Ghost Glue #25: Facts
Method of Extraction: Carbon dioxide (C02)
About CO2 Extraction
Carbon Dioxide, or CO2, occurs naturally in our environment: whenever we breathe, with decomposition, and even through ocean release. We find CO2 in our sodas and it’s used as an industrial solvent for creating everything from food extracts to fragrances. It’s known as ‘dry ice’ in its solid form. CO2 is considered safe by the FDA and non-toxic.
The generic process is typically referred to as ‘supercritical CO2 extraction’ whereby CO2 is converted to its supercritical state (i.e., having liquid properties while remaining in a gaseous state) by applying very cold temps and pressure and is then used as a solvent to strip the resinous trichomes from the cannabis plant material. All of which occurs in a sophisticated CO2 extraction machine.

NOTE: I do not identify dispensaries in my reviews. However, if you want to know the shop that's offering this pricing, I will provide it to anyone who requests it.
Delivery Method(s) Used: Glass dab rig w/ a quartz nail
Cannabinoids Profile: I did not note the cannabinoid levels before discarding the packaging. First time I've ever made that mistake. My apologies. (LK Pure Labs)
TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library.
Characteristics: A single, semi-opaque, amber piece. This was a true pull-and-snap form of shatter; at once soft, but ‘snaps off’ like a brittle shatter. Pull-and-snap forms are best stored in a cool, dark place.
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this product, so I cannot provide the terpene levels from this sample.
In its intact state, this pull-and-snap emitted a pungent sweet Haze aroma. When dabbed, this sample tasted of mostly sweet Haze with some coco notes.
TIP: To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: Starts out with a burst of energy that burns off slowly throughout the experience. A body component rides tandem in the background and takes over as the energy wanes. At low and moderate doses you can function on it, no problem. At higher doses, you might feel a little spacey or anxious. You can function on this at lower doses. I found this strain did not cause significant munchies.
Duration of Effects: 2+ hours
May Help With: Helped with fatigue and stress. May also help with mild nerve pain, mild body and muscle pain, depression (and more).
A high quality pull-and-snap that exhibited the Haze side of the parentage more so than the glue.
